“The Aztec Skulls … the best rock to come out of Northeastern Pennsylvania since anthracite!!!” Or so mused one scribe. Like the coal breakers of old, the Aztec Skulls crank out rock songs with all the subtlety of a locomotive.
In an industry that thrives on labeling music, the Aztec Skulls generate a sound with universal appeal, somewhere between hard, country, acoustic and plain-old rock. Label it what you will.
An off-handed comment by a local musician led to the title of their debut recordings “You Can’t Sing”. This musical collection includes songs that defy the typical industry labeling standard but instead move up and down the airwaves somewhere between hard-rock, country and classic rock. In another unprecedented move by the band, they release the tracks directly to their Official Web Site (www.aztecskulls.com) as they are completed instead of compiling them for a CD release. This has allowed them to interact with their fans throughout the recording process and give the fans some input into crafting their sound. In fact, “You Can’t Sing” includes two of their more humorous tracks, "How Long" and "Leave Me Alone". The length and content of these songs indicate that the Aztec Skulls are playing for their fans. This effort allows the band to boast of collecting fans from Pennsylvania to Michigan to South America to Asia. Cool, huh?
