MATALON is a Boston-based hard rock POWER TRIO who's been beating down crowds with their ass-kicking neo-classic rock 'n roll since May of 2009 - big thick guitar riffs, heavy-ass bass and drums, great lyrics, strong vocals and ripping, wailing lead guitar - it ain't metal, it ain't punk, it ain't grunge - its modern HARD ROCK with a Huge classic rock influence and we fucking love what were doing. We'd rather be dead than doing anything else.
MATALON is fronted by Scott Matalon with his brother Craig Matalon on drums, Chris Eskola, the brotha from anotha motha, on the bass. The Matalon brothers have a long history in hard rock; Scott fronted Boston funk/punk sensations SQUID! and was a member of Jazz/Hard-Rock pioneer Modern Art! and has worked for Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Phish, Capital Records, EMI, Blue Note Records and more - his brother Craig was a member of NY hardcore band Perseverance, who toured opening for Biohazard and rocked the US and Canada many times. Both Scott and Craig More recently were half of the group Daisycutter, which eventually evolved into what is now known as MATALON. Chris has played in a number of local acts, Including deadlikedeath the Newtz, Pivot, and Choke Puppy, and is currently also doing double duty with Face of the Sun. Until recently, Scott, Craig, made up half of the local rock band, Monolith. With the addition of Chris, the group decided that a new era was beginning, and Matalon was born.
