Altas and Original Overdose
The phrase ‘instrumental rock’ brings a few cliches to mind: layered, wall-of-sound guitars; noodling solos; excessive song lengths. The Denver-based instrumental/electronic rock band Altas avoids these clichés. Instead Altas focuses on composing epic, tightly crafted songs with unique key changes and dynamic shifts that are galvanized with intricate electronic textures and coupled together with distinct melodic lines. This attention to detail and dedication has led to both local and national recognition, from the group’s recent stint as a finalist for Verizon’s Música Unsigned national discovery contest to being named one of CBS Denver’s “Top Up and Coming Denver Bands of 2014”. Altas is a band that has the talent and ambition to break the mold and create something truly distinctive and enduring.
Original Overdose is a hard rock band from Des Moines, Iowa
