Band Rock Alternative






Let’s just say, with a name like Prytania, it was hard for me not to take a gander at this self-titled rock album. Fascinated, to say the least; this six track album is impressive from beginning to end. This four member group consists of a drummer, bass player, vocalist, and acoustic guitarist; all coming together to create a thrilling and roaring sound that is sure to take them places. This album’s sound and style has influences that range from classic rock groups such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to today’s modern pop/rock, and while other groups may influence them, Prytania has a unique quality about them that stands out from the rest. This album may only have six tracks, but that says nothing for its quality. Each track is packed with an intense collaboration of great and electric sound. Now, if that isn’t enough reason for you to purchase this album, the name alone should grab you for sure. With a name like Prytania, this group will always stay loyal to their hometown, New Orleans. –Kimberly Tubré - Where Y'at Magazine

Prytania, the New Orleans based alternative/progressive rock band, originally formed in 2009. The band immediately began to create intense music and in just six short months put together a six track self-titled EP, that garnered attention for its creative upside, hooks, musical psyche, and technical proficiency. Prytania’s single and video, entitled “Hurt Like New”, sparked excitement in the New Orleans area, which began the buildup of a loyal fan base that continues to support their favorite local band. The band members, Michael Portinari, bass; Ben Gendusa, drums; Joe Duzac, synthesizer; Jack Hatty, guitar; and Wayne Miller, vocals, are currently working on their next album, set to arrive in June 2012.
