While only two songs appear on the Myspace page for the Granville, MA-based rock act Vining Hill, they are a good representation of what one can expect to hear at any of the band's upcomming live concerts. Promises and Days Like These are aggressive tracks without sacrificing songwriting in order to be loud for the sake of just being loud. Vining Hill cites varied influences (Ministry, Fear Factory, 311, A Perfect Circle and Zeppelin) and have given a refreshing twist to a musical style that could've possibly fallen into oblivion if not for the band's dedication to writing songs that cannot be pigeonholed as "90's metal". This band is far from flogging a dead horse; in fact they've taken what many might consider 90's music and given it a swift kick in the ass to this century.

The band has been showcasing the songs they've been working on for most of 2007 and if you've missed them or didn't know about them you can definately catch them playing around New England. Vining Hill have a Connecticut date just prior to New Year's Eve and two scheduled Massachusetts dates in January. Vining Hill is as good as any band you'd hear on the radio these days and if radio programmers were more adventurous, they'd be falling all over themselves to break this band.

To hear Vining Hill or more infrmation can be found on Vining Hill's Myspace page at www.myspace.com/vininghill. Vining Hill will be performing live on December 29 in Farmington, CT at Zen Bar and in January 2008 they'll be in Chicopee, MA at Maximum Capacity and in Southwick, MA at the Southwick Inn.

Bio

Vining Hill was formed in the fall of 2002 by four Western Massachusetts musicians who aimed to break away from the current music trends in our area and write music that would make an impression on all who heard it. With influences ranging from classic rock legends to Scandinavian metal pioneers, Vining Hill is defying the critics and carving our own niche in the face of rock music.

Coming from a primarily metal background, we decided to breath some fresh air into the rock scene by creating something off the beaten path.
