Released (November, 27)
The new Sludge / Punk / Stoner Rock project SNOW is releasing their first single on November 27th. “Skate Fast Die Hard” is a manifesto for freedom and frenzy packed with musical elements linked to Hardcore Punk, Sludge, Stoner Rock and Rock’n roll. Fast and accurated with a sonic urgency, fast and heavy riffs and an apotheotic ending that shakes the brain the song is the first of the two singles from the band’s debut album, leaded by Rodrigo Neves (TIGERSHARKS) and which has the collaboration of friends. The album “Skate Fast Die Hard” is expected to be released in early 2021 through Red Garage Records but before that another single from the band will be released.
With the arrival of the pandemic situation 2020 became a chaotic year. With the Covid blast many people stayed in their homes. This situation made Rod (from the band TIGERSHARKS) take an old idea to the band SNOW. The band is a solo project that he always wanted to put together, a project more focused on Sludge and Doom, with strong influences from Hardcore Punk and Stoner.
