Describing their style as a "biker bar beatdown," the Coltranes' sound is raw, heavy, fast and freaky. Hailing from So Cal's wine country (Temecula), they forgo melody in favor of unbridled intensity. Their singer calls to mind the work of Steve Albini as he drones and screeches over arrangements that call to mind a slew of punk bands from the Misfits to the Butthole Surfers. It's a sonic smorgasbord that's sure to see a seething pit.
