Thunderlip hails from Wilmington, North Carolina infecting the masses including those doubting the hype. They're an undeniably catching composite of classic sounds like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Deep Purple with more contemporary masters like The Hellacopters and Turbonegro has become a favorite of many critics and show-goers over the past few years. Their followers know Thunderlip isn't rehashing anything, but trekking on with the best brand of heavy metal rock they love so much. Guitarists James Yopp and John Manning etch each song with smartly-written and expertly-executed guitar harmonies and screaming solos. Bassist Kenny Ells keeps it together with volcanic low ends and attack. Drummer Johnny Collins always gets a round of applause with his scalpel-like precision and 70's rock style. Vocalist Chuck Krueger exudes a charisma that is unforgettable. This snake-faced marauder is a mascot for energetic rock music, complete with wrestling masks, leather clothing, and the occasional cross-dressing moments. There's nothing bashful about this band. Ready for anything, Thunderlip has no plans to calm down their fun-themed crusade for extreme rock, so look for their name on flyers in your town and get licked by the sound.
