As explosive as the creation of the universe comes an equally explosive trio known as Big Bang Method. The group was conceived by guitarist, Guthrie Matthews and bassist, Jim Loretangeli as an outlet for their original material. Together with drummer, Dave Gladding, they have just released their new CD, BOOM! On their independent Etroneks label. The all instrumental material on BOOM! Can best be described as 'Nu Prog Fusion' which fuses the power of Nu Metal, the arrangements of Progressive Rock and the complexity and rhythm of Jazz Fusion. When we started the project in January 2004, we decided to write and record live in the studio. Our music has a live energy that could only be recorded with the three of us in the same room playing together. On BOOM!'s fourteen tracks, you can clearly hear influences of Dream Theater, Al DiMeola, Santana and the Meters. Guthrie plays six and seven string guitars while Jim fingers five and six string basses and a dabbling of keyboards as well. Dave uses an arsenal of vintage and modern drum kits and percussion. His power and finesse are the core attributes that drive Big Bang Method.
