The sound of Motorfinger is like taking an excellent element from each of the legendary grunge bands and forming something entirely new and wholly contemporary.
Their charging guitars are sometimes chunky and low-slung like Alice in Chains', sometimes melodic and epic sounding, like Mother Love Bone's, and sometimes simplistic and couched in power chords, like Nirvana's. Their drums are crashy, smashy, groovy, and Grohl-ian. Maurice Adams' vocals are a cross between Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder, and occasionally even recall those of Serj Tankian. Their compositions are reminiscent of other great alternative bands of the era as well, such as early Soundgarden, Helmet, Audioslave and Stone Temple Pilots. Motorfinger played support for UGLY KID JOE in Norway summer 2017.
