«Honkeyball» - biography, albums, songs, video clips
Begining in 1992, HONKEYBALL was at the forefront of innovative, cutting edge heavy music. One would be hard pressed to actually describe the band as hardcore; their sound had truly developed beyond that typical tough-guy generic style that seemed to pour from the city of Boston. Instead, the band focused on musicianship, unique sounds, vocal stylings and lyrics that set them apart, but worked well with, the rest of the Boston scene. These three gun-slinging, rodeo-riding hombres have created a heavy sound all their own. Pummeling grooves and sick breakdowns will launch you out of your seat, kick your ass and leave you begging for more.Their appeal ranged from the hardest hardcore fan to the casual music listener who appreciated something unique in heavy music. Honkeyball are not just another brazen act from the thrash scene. They are adventurous hardcore entrepreneurs who side-step hardcore’s pitfall of repetition. Rather than limiting its music to quick-time thrash guitars layered with angst-filled vocals, the group expands its hardcore repertoire to include horrific low-end guitars, charismatic melodies, frequent time changes, and complex arrangements of lush rhythms. The band broke up in 1999.
