Motograter. The band that invented an instrument.

Motograter is a band you probably haven't heard of, and if you have you probably didn't have a large attachment to them.

Sliding in during the whole Nu-Metal scene in 95, these guys have a couple of interesting things you should know about.

  1. They invented a freaking instrument called a Motograter, which is a couple industrial cables strung up with a pickup and smacked with sticks.  Look up a video, it's interesting.
  2. Their singer (for a time) was Ivan Moody, currently of Five Finger Death Punch.

So the thing I like about these guys is they have a really unique sound.  I really don't care much for a lot of Nu-Metal bands, but these guys were one of the bands that made it through my filter.  Their sound is really special cause of that instrument I mentioned.  It helped them to stand out from all the rest of the generic angry bands.

Now without further ado, "Suffocate".

It would really be nice if I could pick the picture that shows up...
