Electric Taurus

The Stoner Rock trio Electric Taurus from Dublin is influenced by bands like Hendrix, Clutch, Black Sabbath, Grand Magus, Sleep and many more. They use these influences to create nice, down-tempo Stoner Rock with a lot of Blues elements. Their four track demo album, which you can listen to on Reverbnation, has it all: nice bluesy basslines, heavy riffs, grooving drums and a voice that reminds me of the former Spiritual Beggars singer Christian "Spice" Sjöstrand.
Electric Taurus is for fans of Spiritual Beggars, Lonely Kamel and stoner bands that are heavily influenced by blues.

The band changed their members quite often, and right the current line up is as follows:

James Lynch - Bass Guitar
Matt Casciani - Guitar and Vocals
Mauro Frison - Drums

Matt and Rob formed Electric Taurus in January 2010, they change few drummers, have the privilege to play with Mino Vitelli and Chris Styne. Finally settle down with Mauro Frison on the drummer stool. Sadly Rob left the band in May 2011 to join his sweetheart in England. Matt then took charge of the vocals and keep on writing new material and recording the final songs for their first album. Finally James Lynch joined the band in July 2011 and the band is a three piece again. Strongly influenced by classic blues (Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Robert Johnson) Rock and Roll (Chuck Berry, Little Richard) and the 60s British invasion (Cream, Free, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin) a lots of stoner bands Kyuss, Sleep, Acid King, Grand Magus and Spiritual Beggers.
