They describe themselves as “your favorite band’s favorite band”. Their music is like boiling water thrown on the back of God while he’s attempting to climax.
Claiming influences from Motorhead to the MC5, White Rhino is tearing down the Beachland Ballroom on May 26th
with Cleveland axe hounds All Dinosaurs and certifiable madmen Spacer Ace.
Hailing from Austin, Texas, power trio White Rhino is on tour to promote their new album “Heroin Thunder”. Buzzbin got a peek at this album and it’s viciously awesome. Through their savage riffs and hot lick-oriented hooks, these men expose much of modern music as drooling kittens and classically, heavily, shatter eardrums. The grinding and sometimes bluesy vocals lend themselves well to the 70s metal vibe they’ve got going on. With bands like this cropping up often (especially in Ohio), it helps to say that these guys aren’t just your typical throwback to Sabbath, they’ve got some early 90s alt rock flavor (think Sub Pop), psychedelic interludes, and a definite garage feel. You will probably hear more about this band in the near future, so show up so you can say you saw them back when (insert nostalgia here).
All Dinosaurs and Spacer Ace are on a similar bent. All three bands express a desire to turn the fake haircombing machismo of some current music scenes into ash and to give people something to really bang their heads to. All Dinosaurs live tracks sound pretty damn heavy; be on the lookout for the brutal and blistering “Heap Wolves” at the show. Spacer Ace is fucking over-the-top and rawer than a garage sound (probably more of a basement-below-the-garage sound). We need more bands like this.
