Described as a cross between "Black Sabbath meets Hendrix meets Scott Henderson" (Guitar Mania), the Berlin-based trio DAMIAN MURDOCH TRIO combines elements of hard grooving heavy blues and experimental fusion with riff-laden heavy rock and roll.

The brainchild of the Australian born lead guitarist of Germany's THE OCEAN (Metal Blade Records), DAMIAN MURDOCH, his unlikely alliance with two of Austria's most sought-after session musicians, Michael Posch (drums) and Harry Stöckl (bass), might raise a few eyebrows.

But see DMTrio play and you'll soon forget all that.An ex-pat living at large in Vienna, Murdoch - whose all-star resume runs the gamut of incendiary blues, acoustic jazz, soul pop, heavy rock and full-tilt metal - had a vision to form an elite instrumental project.

One that made no compromises, pulled no punches and would dazzle music-lovers and musicians alike.

And now here it is. DMTrio has channelled influences from several genres of music (blues, rock, funk latin, metal) to manifest a no rules super-group of startling originality.

All virtuoso players in their own right, the ingenious yet instinctive interplay between Murdoch, Posch and Stöckl's instrumentation creates an intense rollercoaster of peaks and troughs, detours and sojourns, sinuous riffery and spellbinding atmospherics.

With their uncanny guitar chops, innovative riffs, lurching rhythms, bass-ass blues, belching bottom-end and leviathan-sized grooves, every song takes its own path, irrespective of convention or traditional structure, but somehow stays bound together in song.

Guaranteed to drop the jaws of everyone from traditional blues purists to metalheads to jazz-beards to rock pigs, DMTrio are as much about raw rock bombast and foot-on-the-foldback bliss as they are about maestro-like musicianship and stunning technicality.
