Musica de Tormento

by 100 Damned Guns

Erudite whimsy and sudden, dusty violence — like a Cormac McCarthy novel by way of David Sedaris — is the spine of 100 Damned Guns’ indelible music. The Fort Worth alt-country sextet is back with the winning "Musica de Tormento"- Preston Jones, DFW.com

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
100 DAMNED GUNS: :
Musica de Tormento: CD
When I got a copy of Musica de Tormento, I was completely blown away: solid, well-written country songs—real country, you understand, neither preservationist old-timey tunes nor the slick pop country of today’s radio, and just barely falling under the “alt” tag in its honest simplicity. Sure, the fact that all the members were previously in punk, garage, or metal bands does come through occasionally. The track “Red RiverValley” probably gets the punkiest, picking up the speed with a fast, solid drumbeat, but it’s immediately followed by “Hard Row to Hoe,” which I have every intention of playing for my dad (a confessed CMT addict). In essence, 100 Damned Guns is country and western music—and they’ve been named C&W Band of the Year in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, two years running. They’ve played bluegrass festivals, shared bills with Wayne “The Train” Hancock, and recorded with The Marked Men. The only way out is up. To put it succinctly: I love this album. – Razorcake - Sarah Shay (TXMF)

If you ever need a reminder that C&W is doin' just fine, thank you very much, catch Fort Worth's 100 Damned Guns. This crew is dedicated to pure country in the spirit of Johnny, Hank and Willie -- no irony, no Nashville sheen. With backwood harmonies and two-step rhythms, 100DG does that thing that country music does better than any other genre -- reel off boot-scootin' homages celebrating overdue bills, shotgun shacks and heartbreak. - Dallas Observer

100 Damned Guns are what Marty Robbins would’ve sounded like if he were still alive, had a bigger set of stones, and didn’t age much. - Gobbler's Knob

They have a combination of rock attitude, old country swagger and Mick Jagger showmanship. - Bona Fide Darling

100 Damned Guns venture into outlaw rockabilly territory without tripping over Grease stereotypes. In other words, their music is cool, authentic, and guaranteed to make your beer go down smooth. – FW Weekly

Daniel T

Country with a little Alt thrown in
The characters in these 12 country vignettes are most definately tormented. This doesn't stop the band from making quite a few of the songs upbeat however. This is Country music as it should be. Not Rock 'n Roll with a southern accent. Great playing from all. Judd Pemberton's voice sounds familiar. Maybe he's just that good it sounds like it should be familiar. Alan Prater on dobro is outstanding. Chris Caldwell on electric guitar adds the Alt bite. Highly recommended for anyone that misses real country. These guys play it like they mean it. Make me want to do some two-steppin'.
