As explosive as the creation of the universe comes an equally explosive trio known as Big Bang Method.

The group was conceived by guitarist, Guthrie Matthews and bassist, Jim Loretangeli as an outlet for their original material. Together with the talent of drummer, Dave Gladding, they have  released a CD that captures the spirit of their many influences.

The all instrumental material on BOOM!  can best be described as “Nu Prog Fusion” which fuses the power of Nu Metal, the arrangements of Progressive Rock and the complexity and rhythm of Jazz Fusion. When we started the project in January 2004, we decided to write and record live in the studio. Our music has a live energy that could only be recorded with the three of us in the same room playing together”. Guthrie plays six and seven string guitars, Jim fingers five and six string basses and a dabbling of keyboards while Dave uses an arsenal of vintage and modern drum kits and percussion. On BOOM!’s fourteen tracks, you can clearly hear influences of Jeff Beck, Al DiMeola, Santana and the Meters. This group, however, defies convention and has a distinct vibe that is all their own…palatable fusion for the masses?
