Chuk Cooley / Press

"If you haven't seen Chuk Cooley's solo acoustic guitar show then you don't know what your missing. It's a must if your into real life lyrics and songs that take you on an emotional hell ride, but finds strength,courage,hope and triumph in the end. You will hear songs with titles like "Your Driving Angry,Everything Goes Black,Creeping Across Razors,The Devil in Me,Tell Myself the Truth and one of my favorites a true American anthem "Brother Soldier" wrote about his little brother Michael Cooley who has served over 15 years in the Army proudly and who is in Afghanistan as I write this. Chuk Cooley solo with out his band the Demon Hammers is something different and very refreshing and it's life and music stripped down to the complete real and raw, with a message for everyone. Fist Raised High to you Chuk Cooley may you live on a long time!"- by Journey Wolf --- Dallas Tx Author of "The Dead Don't Dance Here Anymore"and Rock Journalist for ""Beat the Hell Out of It Magazine"

Journey Wolfe - Beat the Hell Out of It Magazine

“““The Way You Love Me” indeed is a true metal ballad, and the poignancy and emotion of where Cooley’s at rings true in both his voice and instrumentation. It is a dedicated love song that is as soul baring as past endeavors have been, and as sensitive and vulnerable as other of Cooley’s songs are fighting-ly graphic. ” Christy Compton-Smith - The CurrentMagazine”

““Write about what you know…we’ve all heard it, and edgy tell it-like-it-is metal rocker Chuk Cooley may be one of the best examples of that adage being true. A new band(Through the Thorns), on fire with new enthusiasm and energy, Cooley, as always, relates his new experiences through his recent music without losing any of the feel for the past or the talent for passing on brutal truths.” — Christy Compton-Smith, The Current Magazine”

“There have been many times that I wanted to yell a "Preach on Brother Chuk!" or "Lawd, yes, tell it! Tell it!" at a CCDH concert, lol. Chuk is a minister to the masses of unwashed, unloved, beat down, rejected and toxically infected..., bringing the Light of Love and Hope and of Faith in something more and something better than what they can see today. An Injection of Inspiration to overcome their own adversity by clinging to the fact that Chuk was once in the same position, face down, nose full of dirt and restriction. And God Bless him for being Honest. And God bless him for saying at every show "Just in case you haven't had someone tell you today, Chuk Cooley and the Demon Hammers fukin love you!" A CCDH show is church, and rock n roll, and party rolled into one. But I think that is what heaven is like anyway” — Traci Beagle-Sawyer , FANS comment on facebook”

““Cooley's stage presence is that of a preacher with an all-too-intimate knowledge of the fires and brimstone of hell. He has survived years of incarceration and drug abuse only to rise above and preach positivity and redemption in a manner only a sinner could.” — C.M. Rodriguez, Urban Tulsa magazine”

“Chuk Cooley-Born and bred in Texas, He is a Tulsan now,serving as the front man for his band the Demon Hammers.This stage-loving bad boy has the street-wise to match his rough & tough persona, & the talent & drive to translate his hard-knock life of addiction & prison into melodic tunes. Survival of the fittest keeps Cooley rising to the top to continue his metal-head legacy.-Joe Wertz” — Joe Wertz, urban Tulsa Magazine”
