Introducing… What’s The Damage?!
It’s no secret that I have a weak spot for Scottish unsigned metal bands and the guys who started this obsession were Balloch’s very own What’s The Damage?! Forming in 2008, WTD?! have played alongside the likes of Fallen Fate, Sworn Again, Katatonia and Freak Kitchen. Continuously leaving the crowd’s ears rattling and pining for more.
With bloodthirsty vocals, screeching guitars and a whole lot of ball breaking attitude, WTD?! do not, under any circumstances adhere to the ever-growing popularity of bands such as Bring Me The Horizon and instead look to metal Gods such as Lamb of God, Children of Bodom and Devildriver for inspiration.
WTD?! are not only a fantastic band, they’re a great group of friends who genuinely love playing together. When they’re on stage you can see the chemistry between these guys, there’s an immovable sense of respect between them and they seem to have the foundations to be huge in the metal scene.
2011 is the year for this band and I suggest you catch them now, they have a small but loyal fan base that only looks set to get bigger and better. They hold a lot of promise and I wholeheartedly believe that they have the tools to get far with their music.
