Allow me to preface this with a warning: This band is not for the faint of heart. Stunt Cock is based out of Austin,Texas and play a crushing blend of metal, hardcore, and straight up rock on their eponymous debut. The guitars come out chugging hard on the track "Wishes and Fairy tales", but throw a curveball with the almost too metal for metal guitar solos. On "Lou", the band go almost rockabilly with a raspy and rapid delivery nobody, including I, saw coming. This band's talent does not come in doing one thing and doing it well, but doing many things and doing every one of them better than most. The vocals vary from a growl with the fury of Josh Scogin of The Chariot and power of Ben Perri formerly of From Autumn to Ashes to a baritone crooning reminiscent of Maynard James Keenan. The guitars can go from chug chug to melting your face off solos in an instant. This is a band that found a way to fit into several genres, but in doing so kept themselves from being pigeonholed at all. A second warning: Texas, prepare yourself. Stunt Cock is coming to knock you out and not apologize.
