Artist of the day: Flyingsnakes
Since 2005, St. Petersburg’s Flyingsnakes have specialized in thundering, bludgeoning metal heaviness. Singer-guitarists Cletis Chatterton and Jonathan Warzybok, bassist Nick Sibilia and drummer Aaron Walter are tight, loud, fast and cool enough that Samuel L. Jackson himself might call them the “Flying motherf---ing Snakes.”
“We’re not metal guys. We just have a passion to play heavier music,” Warzybok once told tbt*. “It’s more an ethos than a particular music style. It’s about being frustrated with how everything is. In a nice way, it’s released aggressively.”
On Saturday, Flyingsnakes will be part of the Scion Rock Fest, an all-day metal festival taking place at the Ritz Ybor, Crowbar, Czar and the Orpheum in Ybor City. Click here for all the details.
