Guitar riffs "heavier than John Candy's coffin", thick and juicy bass grooves and a thunderous barrage of seventies inspired drum beats, Heavy on the Ride has all the right ingredients to bring to the dining room table with a side helping of hooks and melodies to keep your tastebuds tingling.
Influenced by rock titans QOTSA, experimental sludge kings (the) Melvins and prog metal masters Mastodon, HotR wear their influences on their sleeves to brew their own concoctions of what they think
makes a good rock n' roll song.
Since forming in April 2009 the band has released two EP's, a single and have a long over due debut album due like any time now...
The band has played alongside former QOTSA members, Nick Oliveri, Joey Castillo (B'LAST!),
Gene Trautmann and Dave Catching (Star & Dagger) as well as Ikey Owens (RIP) of The Mars Volta,
The Subways, and Japan's Electric Eel Shock.
