Attika7 is an American heavy metal/hard rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2005 by guitarist Rusty Coones and front man Jayrexx. Later joining the band Tony Campos (bass), and Dustin Schoenhofer (drums). The sound is a heavy drop tuned rock/metal blend of heavy yet melodic riffs and hooky leads with a taste of blues influence in them, reminiscent of Tony Lomi of Black Sabbath fame. Jay’s vocals are in the realm of Phil of Pantera or Sully of Godsmack. The vocals are heavy but not the death metal cookie monster grind. Their sound crosses genre boundaries and isn't pigeon holed into rock or metal alone. Live, they are powerful and the songs are performed note for note as precise as the recordings. Attika7's fan base is broad appealing to teens as well as oldsters. Even some that don't normally listen to heavier music can appreciate the tight performance and decipherable lyrics. Attika7 has played and toured with some great names in metal and rock. In 2010 the band toured the UK and was invited to play dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival put on by music guru John Reese. Check em out, you won't be disappointed.
