Rigged: Revolving Beast Guitarist Benjamin Powell (aka Valient Thorr's Eidan Thorr) and Storm Castaneda

Apparently Valient Thorr six-stringer Eidan Thorr, known to the earthbound as Benjamin Powell when he walks amongst us mere mortals in the realm of Midgard, tries to avoid any possible moment of calm and quiet. So when he”s not raining down the hammers in his more widely-known band he simply continues to bring the thunder in Revolving Beast. Powell, along with drummer Storm Castaneda (come on guys, do you have no bass love for us?), gave us the scenic thorr tour of The Beast”s sky-crushing gear.


Revoling Beast”s forthcoming record is a continent-spanning split with Oslo, Norway”s Turbojugend Kokomo. You can call them TJ Kokomo for short, or if you”re looking for a great name for a Magnum, P.I. reboot. Preorders are up at this location, but I have to warn you online casino that you might want to don your spectacles ahead of time. The text-on-background clash on Shop Turbojugend is giving me serious Geocities flashbacks.
