The Apocalypse Blues Revue is a hybrid. From their inception, the quartet organically became an amalgamation of wide musical styles that morphed in to one band that is both classic and modern. Co-founded by Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin and guitarist Tony Rombola, and featuring vocalist Ray “Rafer John” Cerbone and bassist Brian Carpenter, the quartet honors Blues traditions while etching their collective stamp on the genre.
The Apocalypse Blues Revue approached introducing their repertoire to the public very organically, offering a gratis download of "Whiskey In My Coffee" which is available here: http://www.unlock.fm/7wy. Their entry point is about the song first and foremost. As Larkin shares, "The fact is, when a lyric or riff or rhythm comes out of any one of us in The Apocalypse, there is never a bit of doubt or any question if it is 'Blues' or not. We aren’t just trying to write Blues – it is as natural as picking up our instruments. I want the perception of this band to be just how much we love the Blues." As they approach this endeavor as four parts delivering a far greater sum, a global audience will follow emerging from the natural connection to the emotional heartbeat that is The Apocalypse Blues Revue.
