Bushwhack biography
BUSHWHACK is a progressive metal band based in New Haven, Connecticut formed by keyboardist Frank SACAMORE, bassist Sean MCCUSTER, guitarist and vocalist Jamie van DYCK, and vocalist-drummer Ben SHANBROM around 2006. The band's sound hearkens back heavily to well known acts such as PORCUPINE TREE and DREAM THEATER, and the classic progressive metal sound, along side more experimental and alternative styles, are expressed fully in their music.
Despite still being in college, the four guys managed to record a debut self titled album in 2007 and then follow it with an EP "Canvas" in 2010. The band is still active in touring around the New England area and is writing music for a follow-up album. The band will appeal to fans of PORCUPINE TREE, DREDG, DREAM THEATER, and other alternatively inclined progressive metal bands.

Review by Windhawk

3 stars Real intriguing debut from this very young US band.

The music presented on this debut album is quite dark and atmospheric, with influences from prog metal, thrash as well as alternative rock and metal. The guitar is a central instrument, more often than not with dark and gritty riff patterns mixed with lighter melodic acoustic licks in the different segments of a tune. Guitar solos and melodic distorted guitar patterns are relatively plentiful too; all of them atmospheric though. Not a shred segment in sight. Floating synths is another mainstay here, mostly floating above the guitar licks and riffs adding melody, stature and texture to the tunes.

The compositions experiment with contrasts and sudden changes, and generally succeed with that. Quite a few of the tunes comes across as too long though, and some changes may be to sudden and dramatic, with songs lacking some cohesion as a result. Still, a talented band with a promising debut album.

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
