Album Notes
Austin based Deserts of Mars was formed with a heavy fuzzed out bass and the idea that the riff rules all. After searching the universe for like-minded band members, vocalist and bassist Tony Salvaggio found game artist and drummer Billy Garretsen and started cranking out heavy rock. Their musical space adventure was kicked into hyperdrive with the addition of Bob Hoff, who's melodic guitar work solidified the sound as a perfect counterpart to the low end growl prevalent in much of their music. From there this power trio forged their friendship and their fan base playing on the Red River District of the blue planet. Influenced by a variety of heavy music from around the galaxy, Deserts of Mars has one goal - to create Mars Metal that rocks the universe.

“Transmission” is the culmination of the first leg of this planet hopping journey, via the navigation and propulsion of engineer Mark Dufour and the relentless rock of DoM.

heavy and deep
Dark and powerful. Reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age and Motorhead. old school metal sound with modern day stoner rock rhythmic punch and atmosphere. Vocals have primal anger, bass is like a grunting scary beast. Drums rock out, while retaining a great feel. Machine gun guitars. Considering it is their first release makes you wonder what they will achieve next.


Rock is not dead!
This album is some serious rock- spacey and heavy all at once. Awesome!
