Deserts of Mars

Hailing from the Red Planet but stationed in Austin,TX Deserts of Mars blazes like a meteor with white hot heaviness, an Earthshaking rumbling bass, thunderous drums, and guitars that sing the music of the spheres.

Band Members: Tony Salvaggio -Bass/Vocals, Erik Kinservik- Drums, Robert Hoff- Guitar

Austin based Deserts of Mars was formed with a heavy fuzzed out bass and the idea that the riff rules all. After searching the universe for like-minded band members, vocalist and bassist Tony Salvaggio found game artist and drummer Billy Garretsen and started cranking out heavy rock. Their musical space adventure was kicked into hyperdrive with the addition of Bob Hoff, who’s melodic guitar work solidified the sound as a perfect counterpart to the low end growl prevalent in much of their music. From there this power trio forged their friendship and their fan base playing on the Red River District of the blue planet. Influenced by a variety of heavy music from around the galaxy, Deserts of Mars has one goal - to create Mars Metal that rocks the universe.
Recently Billy had to accept a mission training his newborn daughter to fight Rocktopi on Mars and beyond. Luckily the Mars Curiosity Rover made good on its secret mission and unearthed Erik Kinservik from his cryostasis deep within the Martian caves. Erik brings with him the thunder of meteors hitting the surface of many moons and is ready to help launch Deserts of Mars into the stratosphere as they continue to tour the galaxy in search of the one riff to rule them all.
