Synopsis

Album Description
New Orleans funk-rock band Afroskull has put the finishing touches on their first full-length studio album, "Monster for the Masses." With nine songs composed by the band, "Monster for the Masses" was nearly a year in the making. Afroskull rhythm mainstays Joe Scatassa (guitar), Bill Richards (bass), Jason Isaac (drums) and Matt Barone (keyboards) are in top form, effortlessly weaving funk, rock and jazz together into a thick instrumental pallate. The usual Afroskull horn section has been expanded to a virtual army of brass and woodwinds on the album. Old friends Clarence Johnson III, Scott Bourgeouis, Jason Mingledorff and Antonio Gambrelle, all laid down some very funky horn solos.
 

CD Reviews

The best band you've never heard of
Zachary J. Powers | Savannah, GA | 01/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"New Orleans natives have long been familiar with sound and style of Afroskull. Their driving beats, hip tunes, and unbelievable presence are matched with talent and tightness as a group. These boys are having fun, and making the listener join in. If you're a fan of instrumental funk or rock, or are just in the mood for an amazing musical ride, pick up "Monster for the Masses" now."
