Anthony Vincent of 10 Second Songs Injects Top Pop Hit Singles with Metallica

Image
Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs has joined up with guitar player 331EROCK to release yet another brilliant take on iconic tracks, this time taking on such top pop hits as Britney Spears "Hit Me One More Time," ABBA's "Dancing Queen," and Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" and reconstructing them in the style of mega-metal legends Metallica.



 "When I thought of the idea to do 10 Songs in the style of Metallica I immediately asked my buddy Eric Calderone (EROCK) to join me because that was the only chance in making this sound as if Metallica REALLY performed these songs. Eric is a master of his craft, not only in performance but matching guitar tones. Insane. But yeah, this was therapeutic for me. Metallica was my favorite band from when I was 10 and at one point in my childhood I hated anything that WASN'T Metallica HAHA.

BAND SPOTLIGHT: PHOENIX, ARIZONA'S AMERICAN STANDARDS!

Image
Sometimes strong emotions can make you lose focus. That’s not the case for Phoenix, AZ based four-piece American Standards. After losing their founding guitarist to suicide, then shortly after the vocalist Brandon Kellum’s father to cancer, the chaotic metalcore band founded in 2011 released their most emotionally and socially poignant album to date. 
ANTI-MELODY” released on April 28th, 2017 displays the dissonant noise-punk outfits ability to navigate the troubled waters of depression and loss while still incorporating the social commentary that the band has become known for.

The result is a raw and powerfully resonate glimpse into the group’s minds during the troubled times. 
Now more focused then ever, American Standards has hit the road playing over 300 DIY boo…
