Raunchy

A Danish band called Raunchy might conjure certain assumptions as to what this band's style might be like. The band name itself might bring to mind hard rock or possibly glam, and that is way off the mark in this case. Bands from Denmark often slot into thrash, death, or melodic power metal genres, and Raunchy doesn't fit into any of those categories either. Instead, the debut album Velvet Noise delivers a heavy, slightly industrial metal vibe, with a few nu-metal touches, sometimes in the realm of Fear Factory mode but perhaps more often reminiscient of Strapping Young Lad, particularly when the clean vocal choruses come through. Some have put this band right into the nu-metal bin, which doesn't seem correct -- a modern American influence is detected, but it's just that, an influence rather than a direct style description. With a second album (Confusion Bay) expanding on the debut's style, it appears that Raunchy, to their credit, is a bit outside of most genres, forging a sound with familiar elements but not really sounding directly like anyone, save for the aforementioned two bands.
