Dragged Under is a brand new heavy metal band forming out of Seattle with some familiar faces. The band consists of Ryan “Fluff” Bruce (known often as Riffs, Beards & Gear), Tony Cappocchi, and Josh Wildhorn following the breakup of their earlier project, Rest, Repose. While that project leaned towards the alternative rock genre, Dragged Under‘s first singles have come out swinging with a much more unapologetic, in-your-face sound.
“Hypochondia” is a potent example of the new direction that the members of Dragged Under have taken with their music. The track jumps straight into heavy, chugging riffs played on dueling Ernie Ball Music Man Valentine guitars. Be sure to stick around for the breakdown about halfway through the song.
