My first thought when I received an email about the band from guitar/vocalist Rich was “Probably a better name for a band than Donkey Punch”. Which says more for the filthiness of my mind than anything else.
Tigerpunch come from Wolverhampton, to start building an ark-full of animal references. I’ll stop now, though, before we hit the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
Their claim to be a “super sexy awesome epic three piece rock band” is unverifiable from the sexy point of view by this reviewer, but their sounds are good. With this month being their one year anniversary of being a band, they have a couple of demo tracks available so I’ll be honest and say that the quality could be better… but they are demos so I’ve taken this into account. You should, too.
Tigerpunch’s sound is kind of sludgy and pounding – I’m thinking Audioslave, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden… Hopefully that’ll give you an idea, but for best results – listen yourself. One of their tracks is below.
