Motograter Are Back To Give Nu-Metal A Kick Up The Ass!

The Moto Gears Keep Turning!

Whether you’re happy about it or not, Nu-Metal is back….and back in a big way!

Leading the charge are nu-metal veterans Motograter, a band at the forefront of the re-emerging scene and Motograter have released a new 30 minute, career-spanning video chronicling the band’s entire history.

One man nu-metal spokesperson Noah “Shark” Robertson (Drums) states, “I wanted to put something together that told the story of Motograter, from the past to the present. The band’s history is an epic tale and it’s a story that needed to be told. For the new fans and old fans, alike.

The band was famously fronted by former member Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch) but has since resurrected and made a full comeback with James Anthony Legion at the helm.

Motograter recently released the official music video for their latest single “Dorian” directed and produced by Christopher Davis (Human Twelve) who has also produced videos for bands like Dope and Angelspit. “Dorian” has been continuously moving up the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart, reaching #24 this week.

The music video for “Dorian” was recently filmed at the famous Ohio State Reformatory. The historic prison was built between 1886 and 1910 and remained in operation until 1990, when a United States Federal Court ruling (the ‘Boyd Consent Decree’) ordered the facility to be closed. While this facility was used in a number of films, TV shows and music videos, it was made famous by the film The Shawshank Redemption (1994) when it was used for the majority of the movie.

Desolation was produced by Ahrue Luster (Ill Nino/Ex-Machine Head) and mixed by Joshua Wickman (Within the Ruins, KING 810). The album was engineered by Luster, Wickman, and Jon Berrier, and recorded at Illustrious Productions, Dreadcore Productions, and BlackPlate Productions.

Art for DESOLATION was created by Mister-Sam Shearon, who has created covers for comic books and graphic novels including Clive Barker’s HELLRAISER, Judge Dredd, The X-Files, Mars Attacks, KISS, and Clive Barker’s Books of Blood as well as artwork for some of the biggest names in rock music, such as Godhead, Ministry, Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, Powerman 5000, Biohazard, American Head Charge, Rammstein, Fear Factory and Kill Devil Hill.

Desolation marks the band’s first full-length album since the 2003 Elektra/No Name self-titled release featuring Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch) on vocals. Motograter is now fronted by James Anthony Legion (Deadform/The Breathing Process).
