Not to be confused with the Japanese band of the same name who formed in 1996 or the more recent Stoner Doom band from New Zealand, this incarnation of Triceratops began when three like-minded friends in Ohio began to write music. A trio of the brothers Josh and Ryan Singer and lifelong friend Vince Palmer, Triceratops have been blending funk and groove with their own brand of stoner rock for a few years now.
While still relatively unknown, they have been building a steady following, earning exclusive features in online publications like Metal Anarchy, and they’re close to notching up over 600 likes on Facebook. As a band, they’ve become known for their hard-hitting live shows that really bring their sound to life. Built on waves of blues orientated stoner rock that is spiked with heavy, grunge-inspired riffs, quick-fire drums and an immutable baseline, it’s a sound that is impossible to ignore.
Their debut single and a track that fully captures the band’s sound, ‘Electric Sunlight' is a rampant release fitting of the band's influences and aspirations. An original piece that is awash with the sounds of Black Sabbath, Led Zepplin, and The Doors, ‘Electric Sun’ is more than just a song, it’s a deafening battle cry that shows Triceratops mean business.
