Taking their musical cues from classic acts like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Accept and Metallica, Black Sheets Of Rain's focus is on writing memorable songs delivered with relentless energy. Pounding drums, rumbling bass, biting guitars and gritty vocals underpin the band’s heavy, melodic material.
A power trio in the vintage mould, the band feature David Nuttall (Drums/Vocals, ex Toy Dolls), Matt Lambourne (Bass / Vocals, ex Solomon Groove) and Rich Davenport (Guitar/Lead Vocals, ex See Red, Atomkraft). Songs from their forthcoming debut EP, have already met with an enthusiastic reception at live shows supporting established UK metal bands Eliminator and Seven Sisters.
The band members have gigged extensively over the years in the UK and abroad, and have worked on a number of self-released albums, singles and EPs in previously projects. They are currently planning a campaign of live shows and publicity to promote the release of their debut EP in 2019, with a view to following this with a full-length album in 2020.
