Bubbling up out of the slag of the Nickel City, Aggressive Acoustic has gradually been smelted into a highly corrosive hodge podge of madness, musical instruments, and the united goal of making ear drums bleed with instruments traditionally perceived as pleasant to the ear. Initially the brain child of Brian Cattapan, Aggressive Acoustic started as a one man band of big voice and bassy acoustic guitar sounds. Deciding that he needed some drums in the mix, Brian performed an ancient and eldritch ritual to summon the Thunder Goddess, Angie McBride to provide rhythm to what was to become Aggressive Acoustic. In the process of summoning Angie, the earth let loose a massive high pitched fart that sounded pleasing to Brian's ears. Almost in tune with what he was playing. Despite the horrid stench of the looming flatulent cloud, and its penchant for creepily hovering about the area, it could recall the sound of its birth, and Brian found it to be suitable enough accompaniment for his sounds. Thus Sean Trottier was birthed, and became part of Aggressive Acoustic.
From Tool and A Perfect Circle, to Chevelle and Monster Magnet, we rework heavy alternative rock songs, and make them our own in an acoustically aggressive way. Mixed with some sweet originals, our unique sound and set-up are sure to please. We are not your average acoustic band.
