Trepid / Press

“Devil girl was the first track I listened to. This made me think of a few ex-girlfriends but that’s another story! A dark, menacing guitar riff wakes you up aptly accompanied by a thunderous drum beat. The vocals soon kick in and I was pleasantly surprised to hear a fresh, smooth female voice penetrating my ear drum. The contrasting styles between the fairly soft voice and the heavy riffs work really well, and it’s a little bit of the unexpected. I enjoyed listening to this band. It was a little different to many of the bands that I have listened to previously; however, I can appreciate what’s going on here. There's a lot of talent flying around the band and see a bright future for them.”

“Trepid of Shreveport, La are quickly building a name and following as they offer something different and unique to the scene. The band recently released a second self-produced CD, "And They Call It Revolution.” Keeping with the tradition of their metal style lyrics coupled with their rock n roll sound, the band said they got in-touch with their feminine side to write the new CD. Since Trepid’s lead singer is a woman, Lana Rothlisberger the band worked to write songs geared a little more toward Lana. “Rip It Away was because I wanted to write an ‘I hate a man song’,” Brian Young, lead guitarist said. “I don’t know? I just wanted to write a pissed off woman song.” “The first song is called Devil Girl,” Young said with a grin. “I was trying to think of some lyrics and I thought, ‘What if Lana was evil?’ Of course that’s the opposite of how she really is. We have a video for it on Youtube and it’s been getting a lot of hits.” ”

““Trepid has a sound that is all their own and completely original.””

“When Trepid took the stage, I really didn’t know what to expect. This was a band I had never met or seen anywhere, other than on Myspace. Instantly Lana joined in with rest of the band and they all came to life. There they were old style rock with metal style lyrics. It made quite an interesting marriage in music. There are a lot of rock and metal bands out there right now, but Trepid brings something unique to the music scene. I cover several music scenes, because I am a southern, four states area writer. The SOUTH, is MY music scene and I always love being surprised.”
