England’s Eruption is a four piece that comes to us by way of Brisbane Australia, made up of Darren Grant (Vocals), Santi Rigolizio (Guitar), Lee Golledge (Drums), and Nick Power (Bass) this Italian Aussie band came together in 2003 after Santi Rigolizio moved to Australia from Italy with hopes of breaking in to the Australian music scene. After placing a few ads in the local newspapers Rigolizio finally got a call from Darren Grant and the seeds of Eruption were planted.
The next 6 years saw the band go through numerous members and two different names, Mobstar and Daz Rigo, before the band signed with Escape Music and changed their name to Eruption.
Eruption’s debut is titled “All Screwed Up” and is chock full of 80’s inspired hard rock with some great playing and background vocals. Darren Grant is a powerhouse whiskey and cigarette type of vocalist, but Santi Rigolizio is an absolute monster on guitar. Give such tracks as “Bad Girl”, “Naive”, and “Reflection” a listen and it is easy to hear.
