Bags of Rock Short Info

Starting out as an instrumental act, Glasgow’s Bags of Rock have evolved into a full-on, vocal-driven heavy metal powerhouse. With a sound described by many industry figures as unique, their original compositions mix Annihilating Guitars and the Great Highland Bagpipes with influences from Techno to Dub and Hip Hop – all headed up by an honest Scottish vocal. Their renowned high-octane gigs have provided the basis for the band’s second album – due for release very, very soon – an album which transports their electrifying live performances direct to your eardrums. Recorded in 2012, their debut album was ‘The Next Level’. Both band and debut album were recognised by the Scottish New Music Awards in 2012 as Group of the Year and Rock Recording of the Year.
