I have been quite excited about Powerflo since I first learned of the new project awhile back. The band features former Fear Factory bassist/guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers and Biohazard frontman Billy Graziadei. But it doesn’t end there…
Also in the line up are Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog, .downset guitarist Rogelio “Roy” Lozano and Worst (band name, heh) drummer Fernando Schaefer. Melding hip-hop, metal, punk, and rock into a multifaceted offering, Powerflo lives up to its name.
That fact should be fully realized with the Powerflo self-titled début album, releases on June 23rd via New Damage Records. The album was produced by Josh Lynch and Billy Graziadei, mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Godsmack, Papa Roach, Helmet) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More, Halford, Adrenaline Mob) at Maor Applebaum Mastering.

Powerflo are unleashing their first official visualizer today with ‘Resistance‘, about which Sen Dog comments:
“We’re here to make honest music. It’s not about pleasing anybody or confirming anything. We’re creating from a pure place. We worked our asses off. It’s not a one-time thing. It’s just the first Powerflo album. There’s much more to come…”
And we will be here to report it when it does come, but now… check this out:
