7 song DEMO "Dark Revelations"


Feeling a bit camera shy


In early 2002 two brand new Air Force Airmen met right out of basic training. They had just arrived at tech-school and were set to be roommates. Their names were AB Geoff Cormier and A1C Cliff Oliver and they were instant best friends. The two soon discovered that they both shared an undying interest and love for heavy music. Soon after this discovery they further learned that they were both musicians and started to write music with each other every night. These jam sessions were pure magic, even though all they had were and acoustic guitar and a cheap bass. They started playing for people in the dorms where they lived and their fresh new approach to heavy music was well conceived.
Flash forward to 2003. Geoff and Cliff met an odd fellow airman named Dan Vasko. They were instant friends and again had the same love for heavy music. Now Dan (or Sko) just so happened to be a very unique and very good bass player and with a little convincing said he would jam. Now there were three musicians with a dream and the fourth and final member, Josh Thornburg, Geoff and Cliff’s friend from tech-school, stepped in saying for the most part he was a guitarist but he used to play the drums and wouldn’t mind starting up again.
So, from the time span of summer of 2004 to summer of 2005 the four of them practiced and wrote songs, and when the summer of 2005 came around they started playing parties and building a substantial fan base under the name Winterlock. Then after a little research SrA Cormier found the right numbers to call and started getting shows at local venues for the new band. And they haven’t stopped nor have they gotten any smaller. Since the summer of 2005 till March of 2006 Winterlock has played over 25 shows at a total of 5 local venues including Puccini’s Golden West Saloon, The Atomic Cantina, Burt’s Tiki Lounge, Ralli’s Bar and Grill, and The Launchpad.
In October of 2005 Winterlock went into the recording studio to record a 7 song demo to hand out to clubs and pass on to their fans. The title of the recording was “Dark Revelations” and it featured the songs: Alone, Clouds, Two Years, Evil Machine, One Thru Nine, Change and The Blue Eye. The band has recently added 3 new songs to their repertoire including the very funny and fan loved “I Hate Country Music” the catchy yet brooding “Gateway” the mosh-pit starting “Sacrifice”. There are now plans being laid down to start recording the first official Winterlock album appropriately named “Dark Revelations”.
So, have a listen to the world’s first all Air Force hard rock band, Winterlock. The band has several shows coming up in the following months with the dates as follows: February 18th at The Cell Theatre all ages $5 7pm, The Atomic Cantina Sunday February 26th 21+ Free 9pm, 4th St Bar and Grill (or Ralli's) Wednesday March 1st 21+ $3, and Puccini’s Golden West Saloon Saturday March 11th.
