"SESTRIC - Something About The Snake"

Simple songs that are good are very hard to write. Sestric is a band from Hollywood California and they really seem to embrace the “good simple song” formula on their latest hard rock full-length release “Something About Snake.” This is an intensely fun and well-written album that, despite the long running time, never drags or drops the interesting elements. Being led by the extraordinary Chris Sestric, this hard rock pro brings a style that is familiar but also unique to him. His piercing singing is a throwback and a fresh change. Think if you crossed Axl Rose with Paul Stanley. Sestric never grinds or struggles as a singer. He nails exactly the proper tone and feeling; which can swing from casual and upbeat on songs like Here I am or I just want you, to somber and serious on songs like Send me to Heaven or First Love. He seeps with style as he sings and really pulls you in with the quality of his singing. He brings a powerful presence to the vocals and the right amount of emotion. His singing is not “just there.” It adds an important layer to each song. The same could be said for his guitar playing. His strumming has catchy hooks and also lifts each song. And when the song turns serious he flawlessly adapts his leads to accommodate. Chris Sestric is a real modern superstar in the world of hard rock. The songs themselves are entertaining to no end. There is a real sense that Sestric are just having fun here. The smile inducing, head-bobbing nature of the “don’t bore us get to the chorus” approach disguises the strong musicianship that really ties this album together. Add in a healthy dose of variety and you have a contemporary masterpiece of hard rock that constantly keeps itself flowing and immensely enjoyable. The fact that “Something About Snake” stretches passed the hour mark yet keeps everything vivid is a testament to the remarkable song-writing and evolving aptitude that Sestric possess. “Something About Snake” is an incredible hard rock experience. It makes this type of hard rock relevant again. There is certainly something special about Sestric.

~Kris - Crimson Moon Zine


Something About The Snake is an 18-song, hard rock masterpiece.

A template with Les Pauls, Marshalls, piercing vocals and tight drum
& bass grooves paint a familiar rock picture, but the craft of the
songwriting and the way the performances are aggressively delivered are
refreshing and stand out from the din of todays rock music.

Most of the tracks have a sinister edge to them. Some of the songs are a
mixture of heavy, dark and angry moods with lyrics about past
relationships and living the life of a Hollywood musician; other songs
are a bit more satirical and tongue-in-cheek.

listeners will no doubt hear traces of Guns n Roses, Van Halen, Alice
in Chains, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Metallica and other legendary hard rock
bands that influenced Something About The Snakes unique sound.

With the exception of drums plus a couple of guest vocal parts Chris Sestric wrote, performed and engineered everything.



Dedicated rock & roller Chris
Sestric began working on his record Something About The Snake as a
side project while playing in a host of Hollywood based bands, the
longest tenures being with The Resistance and The Undead M.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA Chris is an accomplished musician,
composer, songwriter and music producer. He has a bachelors degree from
Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where he majored in Film Scoring
and a secondary focus in Contemporary Writing & Production.

The heavy rock music of the early 90s was Chriss most impressionable
period. He sites Guns n Roses as his all time favorite band and hearing
Steve Vais Passion & Warfare as a life changing musical
experience. While ignoring most mainstream music of the late 90s and
early 2000s, Chris expanded his musicianship through the study of jazz
and classical genres.

Since moving to Los Angeles Chris has
worked as a music assistant to several Hollywood film composers on a per
project basis, most notably Richard Gibbs. He has played guitar, sang
and composed music for a variety of projects including film scores,
jingles and music libraries.

Promoting Something About the Snake as well as creating music for the next record is now his main musical priority.
