Baptism Under Fire
Formed in late 2007, the remaining members of the Jenny Death Letter (2006), Rooster Quid, J. Karnage and Dan Flores, regrouped with bassist Sitizen Kane and Derrick Reyes to form the band 'One Punch Machine Gun'. The name, One Punch Machine Gun (or 1pmG) derives from Guy Ritchie's film 'Snatch' and also embodies the description for their fast-paced musical and hard hitting style. Their very first single, 'Soulcry', embodies their raw and melodic musicianship. While the lyrics paint a picture of turmoil and resistance, the low grooves of the bass and precision of the drums provide a pathway for listeners to walk along this musical journey. The guitars define their dynamics and angst, starting slow melodically, building up the boiling emotions until the shredding solo bringing their listeners to climax. Their highlights over the past year have been finishing their first EP Album Baptism Under Fire, preforming at the Great American Music Hall, Slim's and Broadway Studio's in San Francisco. In April of 2009, drummer Derrick Reyes decide to leave the band for personal reasons. The band supports him in his decision and wishes him well in all his endeavors. One Punch Machine Gun is working hard to bring their fans more music and more chaos for the future to come!
