In divided times, the power of music is undeniable. When that music is ferociously original and defiantly uplifting, the impact is even greater. Formed in Paris, late 2014, by Dublin-born singer/guitarist Gary Kelly and Parisian guitarist Steven Andre, MOLYBARON have a sound that encompasses everything from state-of-the-art tech-grooves and anthemic metal to multi-layered atmospherics and big riffs, the band’s eccentric flair sets them apart.
Released in 2017, MOLYBARON’s self-titled and self-released album provided a showcase for this new musical force. Wilfully eclectic but still brimming with power-house, the album received much acclaim and led the band to be offered a series of high profile support slots and festival appearances.
From the infectious aggression and giant hooks of opener Animals, to the thunderous denouement of crushing closer Ordinary Madness, The Mutiny once again affirms MOLYBARON’s idiosyncratic identity and irresistible charms. As Metal Hammer UK put it: “Diverse and satisfying, The Mutiny is a banger!”
Recent times have proved that fans of heavy music are becoming increasingly open-minded and hungry for new and fervently individual music. With ‘The Mutiny’, MOLYBARON have struck upon something extremely fresh and invigorating: a sound fit for the future, but rooted in oomph and heft of heavy music’s illustrious past.
