See what others are saying about The Magnetic South!
“The band pushes the sonic envelope as far away from the mainstream rock n’ roll model as possible without devolving into industrial sludge” Skopemag.com
“It’s as if we’re somehow listening to a dream. Shapeless, formless noise suddenly shatters into fragments of immaculate piano keys that dance across an empty plain of introspection and thought.” – Musicexistence.com
“There’s no ridiculous excess here, no jaded self-loathing in the verses, nor is there the feeling that we’re listening to something that has been recycled and/or repurposed from past hitmakers in the genre” – Mobangeles.com
The Magnetic South are a veteran rock collective, who’s loud, jarring industrial tinged sound demands your full listening attention. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist John Sperger, bassist Steve Giles, guitarist Jason Sweeny, and Carlo Ribaux on drums, these battled tested instrumental virtuosos have sprung from the ashes of L.A.’s 90s alternative scene to form a phoenix, specializing in atmospheric hard rock soundscapes, with unexpected twists and turns that reveal new sonic textures and elements through repeated listens.
With careers stretching back to the heyday of grunge,The Magnetic South’s sound is heavy, aggressive, and melodic in the tradition of Alice in Chains, with the industrial leanings of Filter, and the sprawling, epic envelope-pushing of Tool. This is music that is ethereal and experimental, yet muscular and intense.
