Jacksonville, FL (Top40 Charts/ Mindsweep Entertainment & Promotions) - One thing is for certain, trying to make it in the music industry is not for sissies! One must have not only what it takes when it comes to equal amounts of musical talent and professionalism, but also an extreme amount of dedication to the cause, an immense amount of fortitude to be able to both overcome all obstacles and withstand the blows, have a strong strategy for success, as well as an exceptionally tough musical product that out performs the vast amount of competition in the eyes and ears of
both the 'powers that be' within the music industry and with fans alike. It's nothing less than a battle to gain success in the music industry, within a war to maintain it.
One such band that has been forged by fire into one of the strongest heavy metal bands on the rise in the music industry today, and have definitely earned their stripes, is the band Juggernott, who has proven they have what it takes (and more), to 'take the hill' in the genre of heavy metal with their brand new independently produced CD, "Trenchcrawler".
Fans nationally and worldwide can attest that Juggernott's new CD "Trenchcrawler" delivers high caliber performances with superior fire power by all members of the band on this CD. However, Tracks 1 (title track), and Track 2, ("Read Em & Weep"), serves as prime examples of their ability to create their music with innate signature structure and style, (miles off the beaten path of the typical heavy metal structural sound), and pull it off with super tight precision and musical maneuverability. All throughout this CD, all three band members that makes up the band Juggernott deliver a surprise attack of impressive amounts of individual skill, tightness and solidity, while creating an extremely full sound for a band consisting of only three members.
Juggernott, which as the name implies, (as a juggernaut is defined as a "massive inexorable force, campaign, movement, or object that crushes whatever is in its path"), are indeed living up to their name by defying all odds of rising to greatness in the music industry, coming from the very small, rural, Midwestern town of Rosedale, Indiana; to have gained a large and steadily growing fan base and a significant amount of recognition both all throughout the US and worldwide since the band formed in 1997. Their 'no surrender attitude' and determination also proves that the band Juggernott also has the dedication and fortitude it takes to make it in the music industry. This is a band that not only talks the talk, but are tough enough to walk the walk; and have acquired their share of battle scars along the way while gaining ground towards taking the hill in their rise to success in the music industry.
Juggernott's second CD, titled "Necessary Evil" released in 2004, gave the band plenty of heavy ammunition and morale needed to fight the battle, as after that CD was released, Juggernott gained rave reviews for their work on that outstanding CD all across the globe from fans, as well as in numerous esteemed music industry related publications, a significant amount of airplay on mainstream, internet and college radio stations everywhere, and even earned them the respect, alliances and recognition from a number of legendary headliners of the genre. Juggernott's third CD, "Trenchcrawler" has what it takes musically to provide them the reinforcements needed to gain for this band, even higher ground in the music industry.
The cool thing is, the whole message behind Juggernott's new "Trenchcrawler" CD is all about that battle, and provides morale and encouragement, (in a heavy metal sort of way), to others trying to make it in the music industry, and in all walks of life; to keep fighting the good fight, and to believe in yourself, and never to sell yourself short or out. In short, never surrender, as defeat is not an option.
