||In early 1998 a band named Porcelain
Roach formed in the coastal areas of Southern England. Their
main influences include Soundgarden, Tool and Pearl Jam. Personally
I think their sound is a cross of Helmet and Tool, with maybe a
touch of Anathema and Weezer. Live the band is extremely tight,
using complex song structures with off time signatures, give the
band a pretty distinct sound. Porcelain Roach has created a sound
to go against the Nu-Metal sound, still keeping it with some heaviness
without copying the current trend. The three song demo, "Antidote,"
was written well, and the songs "Antonia" and "Shimmerman"
are my favorite songs of the CD. The band's average age is around
twenty-one years old, so they have a long future ahead together
to play more shows with bands like Clutch and Lost Prophet. Porcelain
Roach has recently been offered a record contract, but are waiting
for the right one.
