When you hear the word Mother, the term signifies a strong, forceful, and commanding meaning, while bringing about a life giving, nurturing feeling. This group of four from the New York metropolitan area encompasses the above and much more. From the stage, Mother is in charge, much like in the household. The energy and confidence is what drives each performance of their heavy, groove-driven aural fix. Meanwhile, the songs will scoop you up by the hips and hold you in place searching for more once the last note settles. Formed in the spring of 2011, these newborns have grown fast enough to fulfill the duties of their moniker in a very short time. Vocalist Nick Fargo and Bassist Johnny Bass had a previous musical relationship in the New Jersey based Zodiac. The dissolution of this group sparked an introduction to guitarist Mike Gowen, fresh off the bus in NYC eager to find a match. While attempting the combination of a second guitar player, drummer Anthony Sciasci migrated north on the Turnpike with a passion for the heavy grooves that drive the machine they call Mother. Mother prides itself on its internal dissonance. Hence the name of their debut release, Dissonant Young. Their sound takes hints from monsters like Sabbath and Zeppelin, passing it through the compositions of Queen or Muse, and surrounding it with bottom heavy reminders of Pantera and Soundgarden. The record flows in a fashion that doesn’t let you turn away, much like the band’s live show. Staples such as “Digital Monster” and “As You Run” pack a fast and heavy punch; while “So Long” and “Out Alive” bring a serenade-like blues feel to the table.
