Damn where to start, the guitar sound in the intro was all space age sounding. The beat was killer on the kick, the lead player has a kinda Vai/Satch kinda vibe goin on. This is a great tune in my book. But it would be considered a musicians song or band. It would take a player to really get into the whole tune. It's like 10 mins. or something. I listened to the whole song just to see where it would go next. But most "regular people" would have never made it to the lyrics. Nice fade out and back in at the end.

Bio

RotA is an original, four-piece rock/metal band out of the Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas market. This group uses its driving rhythms, slamming drums, grooving bass lines, and in-your-face vocals with a powerful message to create, and shape, their unique soundscape of music. The band is comprised of local scene veterans who’ve played locally and regionally at various venues including Texas Motor Speedway, Ford Pavillion Main Stage (Beaumont, TX), Mayfest, ArborDaze and various Biker Rallys/Toy Run Benefits in Texas.

The band has just completed the mixing/mastering process on their “LIVE” CD recorded at Texas Motor Speedway. The project was recorded/engineered/mixed/mastered by local veteran engineer Bill Johnson the Audio Director at KCM in Ft. Worth, TX. The new live CD should be made available in 2007.

RotA is currently writing songs for their untitled fourth studio release due out in early 2007. The new full-length CD will contain some of the bands most collaborative work to date. This record will be a bit of departure from their previous works, but the band's trademark sound will still be easily recognizable. They are also booking shows for a tour in support of the new CD.

The group wants to reach a broader audience. So they are redefining themselves musically and lyrically. So the latest CD will reflect those desires. The band also plans to play on some stages that as a group they’ve never played before.

RotA is a musically diverse group. You can hear the band's heavier influences in their music, be it Pantera, Audioslave, King's X, Alice In Chains, Fates Warning, System of a Down, Metallica, Incubus and many more on just about every song. Though the aforementioned groups may not allude to it, the band also has a more melodic and softer side as well. You can hear those other influences such as Queen, Weezer, Dream Theatre and even Def Leppard in other songs.

What really sets the band apart from all the other local/regional bands is their professionalism and their presentation. The songs are great too. This is a band of seasoned veterans who know how to play to a crowd, large or small.
