Gasmac Gilmore - Heavy Metal Worldmusic Live Act in Vienna

Gasmac Gilmore Short Info

In venerable Vienna, the gateway to the Balkans, Gasmac Gilmore's frantic Polka mixed with a dark and ominous sound and harsh Heavy Metal riffs is the missing link between the East and the West, between rigorousness and irony. Old bridges are torn down while new ones are being built. Gasmac Gilmore's singular fusion of Klezmer, Balkan, and Metal - already apparent on "About Boys and Dogs" - is driven to new heights.

What the press has to say

ROCKHARD
“A little sentimental, pretty shrill and colorful, wild and riotous. There’s no Mallorca here, this is pure Balkan, man!”
“The songs of these Viennese boys, who are not opposed to racing East with a Polka on speed, have arranged their songs virtuously and play through them infectiously. Add to that the brilliant singing reminiscent of Serj Tankian and you are left with a cocktail that is sure to please, especially live.”

METAL HAMMER
“It’s always a pleasure to be taken completely by surprise by a band and at the same time be totally blown away by them.”

PLASTICBOMB
“What Gogol Bordello are to Punk, Gasmac Gilmore are to the sophisticated headbanger.”

TRIGGERFISH
“This is quite a thing coming over from Austria here. Once you are hooked, it is impossible to get Gasmac Gilmore out of your head.”

LAUT
“The fact that this crew is not rocking festival stages all over Europe is a grievance that needs to be corrected as soon as possible!”
