Atlanta based MuckRaker, was formed by former BOILER (Mayhem/Atlantic recording artists) member, Will Price (Bass, Lead Vocals) in 2010. After several member changes, and the 2010 release of a 4 song EP entitled “Sound the Alarm”, Ray Mulligan (Guitar, Vocals) joined the band in late 2010. Capo (Drums) joined Muckraker in the early summer of 2011
MuckRaker has just released their first full length album, “Big Black Bus”. 13 tracks of blistering Blue Collar Metal for the average working man, or woman. No trends…just honest Metal/HardCore.
This is what PitRiff.com has to say about “Big Black Bus”;
“PITRIFF RATING – 91/100 – MuckRaker may be an unsigned, independent band, but their sound is huge and as good or better than the bulk of Southern Lord bands that come across my desk…I’m a fan of the no bullshit punch in the face the music provides. In short, I’m jumping on the BIG BLACK BUS.” – Chris Akin, PitRiff http://www.pitriff.com/ (Jun 01, 2012)
While musically inspired by the likes of Black Sabbath, Clutch, Down, Corrosion Of Conformity (COC), Helmet, etc.; MuckRaker has no allegiance to any formula. Whatever the band likes musically, the band does.
MuckRaker’s message? The band’s lyrics are fueled by historic and current events (and booze).
MuckRaker’s mission statement:
“Metal for Metal’s sake.”
