Who is The Whiskey Rebellion?
The Whiskey Rebellion is hard rock/heavy metal band storming out from Pittsburg, PA. They are the Baddest Heavy Metal Band in the ‘Burgh! ARRIVE. RAISE HELL. LEAVE.
The Whisky Rebellion was formed by Johnny Burns and Matt Stookey in 2009. In 2010 They promoted a full released ep entitled “The Sweetest Thing”. After successful online promotion and national attention, they added Kevin Grem and Garret Sinagra to their Brotherhood of Badassery. Look for a strong gig phase in early Summer 2011.
Heavy Metal Fans will respect this PA based outfit. They combine Alice and Chains and Metallica like influences to accompany a sharp and talented guitar sound. Heavy Weapons Grade riffage propels their first track Seal Your Fate, and the 120,000 MySpace Plays for Rise Above showcase a strong online presence.
“Hard rock/metal heads will respectthis PA-based outt, who bringMetallica and Alice in Chains in-uences to bear on original tunes.Heavy weapons-grade riffage propels”Seal Your Fate,” a smoldering mid-tempo song spearheaded by Burns’articulate growl. “Rise Above” hasa menacing demeanor and seemsto include a brief homage to EdgarWinter’s “Frankenstein.” Meanwhile,”The Sweetest Thing” actually swings,though the mix level on the drums is jarring. A promising band in Pittsburgh’s mainstream rock scene.””

“Pittsburgh needs to be ready, because there has not been a young, talented, and ferocious rock band like “The Whisky Rebellion” to hit the declining rock scene in Pittsburgh for ages.”

“Now that The Whisky Rebellion has isolated a complete and permanent lineup, the Pittsburgh hard rock scene has its new heavy hitter!”
