“Welcome to the U-Nidus States of America”
by Ralph Renna www.capitalunderground radio.com
When you hear the name NIDUS , you might think of a warrior, or some type of super hero or possibly a male enhancement pill. The term NIDUS is actually used to refer to “The Nest”. NIDUS doesn’t sound like your average new jack band, In fact they bring a nostalgic type of rock that is both unique and loud. A few weeks back I was loading in my gear to set up for our weekly interviews of bands who will be featured on www.capitalundergroundradio.com.
In walk 4 young men who looked like they were ready to bring their brand of Glens Falls NY -Rock to the masses. The interview was quite entertaining as each member felt confident to be part of the show. The song “She wanna make it” best sums up the sound of this 4 piece powerhouse. Heavy blues in the realm of 70′s & 80′s rock like Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath ,AC/DC, The Clash, but more metal flavored, with a hip hop tinge .
Hearing them recorded grabs your attention, but seeing NIDUS live grabs you in other places? When vocalist Ryan Marcantonio struts to center stage both men and woman pay attention. A stage presence that could be described as if Jim Morrison, Iggy pop, Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler grabbed the same girl had their way with her and their offerings spawned the new son of rock n roll. Although they didn’t need a smoke filled stage with flashing lights and laser beams,but it all made the NIDUS experience much more intense. Thunderous drums, wicked bass lines ,classic monster guitar riffs and bluesy growl. NIDUS are here and they are taking over! For all things NIDUS go to www.nidusrock.com
