Tanner Poppitt - Madrost
Lace Equipment: Drop and Gain HumbuckersTanner Poppitt is the vocalist and a guitarist for the Lake Forest, CA death metal band, Madrost. He also had performed vocals and guitar is the band, Regalia.
Madrost is a four piece metal band that formed in 2007. Madrost has since made themselves known in the underground Los Angeles and Orange County metal regions, hungering to take on the four corners of the globe. With a strong line-up established, 2012 proved to be busy year for the unsigned act; after the release of their debut album "Maleficent".
"They go for the full length brutality on this release. This should be a notice to some of the bigger labels. This band is unsigned, and have developed a rabid following of crazy kids that are hungry for the metal madness that Madrost plays... I would say that Madrost play killer thrash in the classic "Bay Area" tradition. There are a few "modern" elements thrown into the mix, mainly the drumming and drum sound. There are blast beats thrown in the songs here and there, but other than that, these kids came to kick some ass and play some thrash.
Take a song like "Desecrator" for instance. Front man Tanner Poppitt throws in some old school high pitched screams that fit perfectly with the punk/thrash attack on the song. There are so many good riffs on this album, I could talk about them for days. This really is a massacre of killer riff after killer riff. Tanner is a beast on here. His vocals are in your face and pissed, just like they should be. You can feel the conviction behind the performance.
This is not only a good album by and up and coming young band, this is actually a great metal album that any true fan of metal will enjoy" - mike abominator/metalmaniacs
Madrost proves themselves to be a hard working unit to carve a name for themselves in the music world by their own merits with no desire or signs to stop anytime soon. They are now writing their next album and plan to have it out in 2014.
This is what Tanner has to say about his Lace Drop & Gains;
"My Drop & Gain pickups complete my sound. They give my tone the depth and clarity I need for live shows and in the studio. I can honestly say that I have found the perfect pickups for me."
