About two years after releasing their debut EP ‘Rock You All’ 28 years after the birth of the band, Swiss Hard-Rockers Rattlesnake (including member of Ed Banger and the Kardashits) officially released a second EP called ‘The Sky is the limit’ on Digital exclusive through Bandcamp.
…For the record…
The original Rattlesnake travelled the roads from 1990 to 1994, and in 2012 Dylan (Drums) aged 17, convinced his father Raph, the original singer of the band, to revive the band and fly the flag of their motto : Kick Ass Rock’N’Roll. From gig to gig the snake has gained in assurance and attracted new recruits into its fangs, Basti (bass) and Indy (guitar).
Mixing original tracks from Rattlesnake era 1 and 2 with covers from bands such as Black Sabbath, ZZ Top, Angel City or the Starfighters, the band gained attention and followers thanks to their energetic live performances sweating Rock’N’Roll from every pore.
The Bass player and the band went separate ways after the recording was completed for time management reasons, and he was replaced by a well-known bass player from the local Swiss and International scene, Bourreau (the henchman) also know as Bison by his friends (ex-Apocalypse and current bass player for Cosmosonic).
The time came to put all of this energy onto a CD and in September 2018 the band locked themselves into the Geneva Downtone studio with Thomas ‘Drop’ Betrisey (guitar player for Samael) to lay down the tracks for their new EP : ‘Rock You All’. The EP contains 5 tracks and with an introduction by long-time friend Ruyter Suys (Guitar player for Nashville Pussy), the EP delivers the goods with a powerful mixture of vintage tastes and modern sounds.
On Summer 2021, the band releases a second record, an another EP called ‘The Sky is the limit’. 31 years after the birth of the band, the story continues.
