DEAF RAT serves up a mean dish, where the meat is grilled over open fire to somewhere between "raw" and "bloody". As always, the secret is in the seasoning: rich, searing hot and addictive.
Lead vocalist Frankie Rich and guitarists Pat Kramer and Max Lander spent the last seven years together touring Europe in minivans without air condition, sleeping on the floors of fans' apartments and sometimes even living in their recording studio to afford production costs for tours and album. DEAF RAT is all about the passion for rock music and playing in front of people.
The new album Ban The Light was produced by Erik Berglund and is the soundtrack of a dark and grainy dystopia, a should-have-been-made movie directed by the Devil with a cast of thoroughly bad men and evil women.
Ban The Light is inspired by yesterday's and tomorrow's evening news, where politics and religion are used to justify horrible acts. The album tells the story of people stuck in a world where free will is taken away, slowly, step by step, without anyone noticing.
