Damian of Thend is over the top fun to watch because he really cuts loose, no holds barred and is having such a good time being the talented musician that he is that it translates to a great show for everyone. Thend was one of the opening bands at the recent Dope show and according to the press stuff on their website they are described as "heavy hook bounce metal". Loud and heavy is very true and if you give a listen to one of their very compelling songs "Normal People" you might even agree with the bounce assessment. The song has a recurring line hanging around in the background... 'here come the freaks now'... in a hi- pitched whiny voice. There is something fascinating about it with it's catchy riffs and a back beat that is almost a march. LOVED that song!!!
