"Bombshell - To Hell with Motives"

"Latest Reviews"

"Indianola Records has let me down only once, and it was with a band that came with a very weighty disclaimer on them before I even received the record. Continuing with their phenomenal roster, they've provided us with another great signing with Bombshell, a band that completely shreds out of South Carolina" " 8/10 stars - wrankmusic.com"

- WRANKmusic.


"Bombshell Debut"

"Vocalist Chris Stephens chops soar and dive with the best of them. No doubt about it, this kid is a star in waiting. Borrowing from nearly every popular genre of alternative music in the past decade, Bombshell, at their best, is a band worthy of comparisons to modern emotional hardcore favorites like Underoath and Emery" - " 4/5 stars - UpBeetMusic "

- UpBeetMusic - Russ Hockenberry


"Bombshell Album"

"Bombshell couldnt have a more fitting name. Sick guitars that bounce you from pop-punk to screamo to killer hardcore are juxtaposed nicely with just as well ranged vocals. Theres also some synthesizer action going on here to give it even more depth. Detractors that would have you believe that this is just more Fuse fodder are just dead wrong about this band. Incredibly talented and armed with a multi-dimensional sound, Bombshell will take anyone to task that doesnt instantly fall in love with their energetic and engaging songs that ladle up a fresh stew of harmony and angst" - " This Album got Editors Pick on the smoother.net site - J-sin smoother.net " - J-sin smoother.net


"Bombshell on Billboard.com review"

South Carolina group Bombshell mix a series of emo, screamo and almost theatrical metal on this record, resembling something like a cross between Metallica and Billy Talent on the intro For Days and especially later on during 221. From there the deep guttural yelps come to the fore during the rather tight, polished and intricate metal-tinged HXC. The track shows the work of guitarists Matt Simmons and Chris Stephens quite well. It's these meaty, thick slabs of metal that propel the song along without any significant hassles. When Bombshell gets a bit too cute as they do with Princeton, it's basically a run-of-the-mill track you'd find on either of the Vans Warped Tour main stages. Light but not too fluffy or flighty, the chorus kicks to salvage the number. They fare a bit better with the winding BOM that sounds like Jimmy Eat World after listening to Slayer once too often in spite of the occasional vocal chord-bursting screams that do little for the song. Fortunately the album rarely loses its momentum with quality songs like Moving On From Moving On that instantly brings to mind Taking Back Sunday while the earnest Let's Forget perhaps has the best melody on the album. The lone clunker is Looking Through Stained Glass Windows which is a bit too airy from start to finish, the guitars and rhythm section buried deep into the mix. But the lovely Friday Nights Disaster is anything but, with another up-tempo and rather frantic approach that passes the quality bar with flying colors. ~ Jason MacNeil, All Music Guide - All Music Guide - Jason MacNeil

Bio

South Carolina Softcore at it's finest. Bombshell has blurred the lines between generically termed genres of emo, indie, and screamo to form a style of music that has "something for everyone". From clean to intricate guitar work, mixed with angelic harmonies and heart felt screams, these five guys are the definition of what a band should be; not only creative beings or exciting entertainers, but lovers of the music they create and fans that enjoy. Bombshell is not a label or a genre, just simple quality music.
