Irata, Full Bio:
Modern heavy bands stay interesting not by hashing and rehashing familiar tropes, but by throwing curveballs: Greensboro, NC's Irata is such a band. While the tricky riffing and circular phrases suggest mathy- post-rock a la Don Caballero, there's also hard rock and 90s alt-radio accessibility replete with impassioned Perry Farrell-reminiscent vocal howls. This isn't metal and this isn't traditional rock. Rather, it's a hybrid that borrows standout elements from both.
The ex-instrumental duo has gone through several lineups since forming in 2008. Now, as the drum and bass duo of Jason Ward and Jon Case with Ward pulling double duty on synths and both members singing Irata is that birthing star that sheds its outer layers to live on as a dangerous, dense, and super-heavy core. After all, it's Case and Ward's precise rhythmic lockstep that has always driven the band through serpentine melodies and pounding hard-Kraut. Couple that with the incredible, reckless passion and nearly celebratory energy of Irata's live show, and you have a curveball worth catching.
