Carl of IOA

TMD Rocks!

INSTINCT OF AGGRESSION was founded at the start of 2005 in Los Angeles, California. With a clear cut mission from the outset, to dominate the world with their heavy brand of metal. Led by a live wire lead vocalist named Carl Bensley, the band picks up where most young group’s end: bringing a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners style of music to the now dead SoCal metal scene. No gimmicks, no makeup – just five intoxicated guys who live to play music as driving, energetic and intense as possible. After working with Mikey Doling, of Snot/Soulfly/Invitro, and Brad Dujmovic, IOA has unleashed a totally fresh, distinct sound that doesn’t cater to any single sub-genre but still pays direct homage to all of them. They just keep it brutally poignant and totally real.

WARBEAST – Vocalist To Be Coached By PHIL ANSELMO

 Phil and Bruce

TMD Rocks!

"We had hoped to finish recording our debut WARBEAST album for Housecore Records back in April when we went to New Orleans. But we realized that it was just turning out too good to rush my vocals. I also had to return to Texas to get ready with Rigor Mortis for our show in Germany at Keep It True 12. I have always been rushed when it got to my vocal parts. So when Philip Anselmo suggested I just come back by myself and spend a week with him recording my vocals… I was thrilled at the idea of taking my time on each song.

Not only that, Philip is going to sort of coach me and give me tips in the studio. I have always been stubborn about letting anyone help me with my vocals. I always felt I was limited with my vocal ability anyway...
