ThunderTaker is a high energy rock band blending metal riffs with bluesy beats since August of 2014

Mike Emmons wrote on Music Connection Dayton “From the first guitar chord to the last cymbal crash, it’s 110% pure adrenaline!  Perfectly blending aspects of arena rock with high energy post grunge, they own any stage they step on to.  Whether rocking out on one of their original songs, faithfully representing Led Zeppelin, Heart or Audioslave, or redefining a pop cover into a hard rocking onslaught, they never fail to deliver.

The band has perfect balance in their live performance.  The powerful vocals of Parisa Samavati are perfectly complimented by guitarist Ryan Palcic, whose guitar work is a sweet blend of funk, shred and soul. Add to this the thundering basslines and acrobatic antics of bassist Kainan Shank and you have a front line that is second to none. Behind it all is Craig Bishop, whose tight and powerful drums provide the perfect launching pad for the rest of the band 

  It’s a chemistry that results in a show that always gets the crowd going. What strikes me most about a ThunderTaker show is how each of these virtuoso musicians share their space; unselfishly yielding to the others throughout the show.  The bass never walks over the guitar parts. The drums always perfectly punctuate the vocals. Guitar and vocal melody always perfectly entwine.  They serve the song, not themselves, and it’s a level of musical maturity that belies their young ages.

A review of ThunderTaker wouldn’t be complete without time spent on the quality of the songs.  Songs like “Smoke & Mirrors” and their eponymous “ThunderTaker” showcase the band’s ability to mix instantly catchy riffs with deep themes and serious lyrical content.  All of the energy and fun of their live performance is built on the rock solid foundation of great songs with excellent arrangements.”
