FINAL TRIGGER New Album In Stores Next Week

amr_logo_smal_570

Final Trigger is a band that comes along once in a lifetime. As the innovators of “Skrap-Metal”, their music combines high-energy metal with a hip-hop feel. The band creates a unique sound and a sick vibe, with vocal hooks and anthem choruses that are un-deniable to any listener.

Final Trigger’s story begins on ‘The Block’, nestled deep in Toronto’s urban jungle. Crime and poverty stricken, amongst a haven of thugs and deadbeats, four musically talented characters cross paths.

The spark of a lighter in a dark alley, smoking joints over the talk of escape and rebellion. A dream of a better life, where money/weed/bitches are a plenty. Free-styling with homies, rolling dirty, and dropping out of school to jam and pursue music. Most of all: a pact that would bind each member to a common cause, and entwine their fates forever. These are the fundamentals on which Final Trigger was born, and would lead it to become what it is today.

Final Trigger (pictured from left to right): JJ (Drums), Profit G (DJ/Vocals/Keys), J-Roc (Vocals/Guitar), Skitzo Da Clown (Hypeman), Fazio (Bass/Vocals)

The Four Horsemen:

Lead Vocalist/Guitarist J-Roc provides the guitar-driven structures and shredding guitar solos with a tone reminiscent of Dimebag Darrell and Dave Mustaine. All while ripping vocal screams that would rival a Frankenstein of Lamb Of God, Snot and Hed PE.

Bass-man/Vocalist Fazio brings an equally heavy but funky vibe. He plays with a rock-solid presence and slap-bass style, with influences of Cliff Burton and Marcus Miller combined. Not to mention the ability to free-style vocally as if James Brown joined the Wu Tang Clan.

DJ/Vocalist Profit brings the smooth hip-hop vibe to the music, spitting savvy rhymes with old-school swagger, and tasteful keys and scratches.

Drummer extraordinaire JJ Tartaglia contributes the backbone beats and rhythms with a metal/funk style to get the groove just right. Blazing double kicks, sky-high cymbals, and a visual style unlike you’ve ever seen.

These players are the magical combination that makes Final Trigger an all-star line-up, and 2nd to none. The band believes hard in their music, and are proud to live their lyrics and image.

In 2009, Final Trigger released Skrap Metal (Boonsdale Records), mixed by Jagori Tanna of I Mother Earth. The release received critical acclaim in Canada & USA, charting on college radio, and the single Start A Moshpit receiving regular video rotation on Much Loud. Their CD release party in Toronto sold out the Opera House of 1,300 capacity.

Since then, Final Trigger toured as direct support for Mushroomhead across the USA, and shared the stage with Suicidal Tendencies, Marilyn Manson, Dillinger Escape Plan, Protest The Hero, Baptized In Blood, Hail The Villain, Threat Signal, Slaves On Dope, Agent Orange, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Boondox and more.

Skrap Metal Volume II mixed by David Bottrill (Tool/Mudvayne/Stone Sour/Godsmack) is due for a summer 2013 release.
