AUG is Hard Rock w/ a metal edge. Their music is straight forward, hard driving and melodic.
AUG came from the two founding members of the original act Fractured Mirror (not the Ace cover band) Aug and Tommy Strange. Fractured Mirror played with many major acts such as Blue Oyster Cult, Kings-X, Trixter, Circus of Power, EZO and others.
More recently they were known as Johnny Blade, the Tri-State areas premier Ozzy/ Black Sabbath tribute. But the desire for original music, forced them to put together this HARD ROCK 4 piece band.
A new full length CD release from the North Jersey Hard Rock band “AUG” has been unleashed upon the earth. This album contains 9 tracks of hard rock excellence. While Aug’s voice is often compared to Ozzy’s due to a eerie similarity in their tone, there is no doubt the power and range is all Aug. Catchy riffs and big chorus’s fill the album with anthemic songs such as Skeleton Crew and Holdin’ On. The shredding and soulful playing of Tommy Strange leaves him second to none. Having spent the past few weeks in the top 10 of ReverbNations Hot 500 Rock charts, the band expects great things from this album. If your looking for 50 minutes of great hard rock/metal in the vein of Ozzy/KISS/The Cult/ Maiden check them out at www.augrocks.com or www.revebnation.com/aug. Also look for the sorrowful and hypnotizing acoustic demo of Numb, a bonus track only available on an album purchase.
