TOP FUEL ROCK AND ROLL
MADWAGON is an All American, Full Throttle, five-speed Hard Rock Band from the pacific northwest.
formed in 2017 by angelo bria: bass guitar lead vocals, and rodney Hardison: guitars, the two formed a bond over the late seventies and early eighties style of hard rock, where the attitude was just as important as the sonic bombardment.
and the sonic barrier is guaranteed total destruction with the addition of rich morris: drums and vocals.
the band spent the first two years as a power trio, working on their brand and writing and recording their debut cd, " with love from shangri-la" produced by tom van riper ( tommy tutone, the slants ) of lost studios in Portland Oregon, and featuring mark slaughter on guitar on the track, "tramp stamp"
in Feb 2020 they evolved into a four-piece by bringing on fred osborn: guitars.
all four members have been connected to various projects over the years and have had the privilege of supporting and working with such national acts as, judas priest, ratt, tesla, la guns, warrant, kip winger, pat Travers, firehouse, and many others.
madwagon may take their musical cues from the hard rock heroes of the past, but they have a firm eye and lead foot to the future of rock and roll as well, for sometimes the future needs to be reminded of the past for it to reach the appropriate acceleration.
"ONE OF THE HARDEST WORKING POWER TRIOS IN THE NW. MADWAGON DELIVERS A WALL OF PURE ENERGY WITH CATCHY WELL WRITTEN TUNES. DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MOST PROFESSIONAL BANDS I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH." -TOM VAN RIPER, LOST STUDIOS, PORTLAND Oregon.
