Syracuse Bands - MOTORLORD

Rock/Hard Rock/Metal

Hailing out of the Central New York area, MOTORLORD is a hard rocking all original metal band rooted securely in the foundations of Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, The Melvins and Rush (to name but a few). Each member brings their unique style into the fold with a pedigree springing from the likes of Thunderking, Empire State Trooper, Small Axe, Squid, Wishpool, DNR, Dying Breed, Stone Blue, East Side and Machine.
MOTORLORD was founded by Ray Caro and Ian O'Rourke in the latter half of 2016. Then under the moniker of Rose Wine, the two began writing and working out material. By December the duo was augmented when Don Smith came on board and the search to find a bass player was on. Within a matter of months and numerous tryouts, Thom Hall stepped in. His fresh new style brought the finishing touches missing and completed the sound. The summer of 2017 marked the arrival of a new band, a new sound and now a new name: MOTORLORD.
Although a new band, the members of MOTORLORD are tried and true veterans of the underground "rock and roll" scene. The fall of 2017 will see MOTORLORD driving their brand of "Northern Rock" at various venues throughout Central New York while working on material for an upcoming E.P. Until then... only the deaf ride shotgun!
