Hailing from the blackest heart of Nottinghamshire, three-piece rock / doom, sludge metal outfit Master Charger formed in 2006 from the ashes of previous semi successful bands. ” The experience gained from these previous bands has helped them to establish themselves and carve their own niche. After years of line-up changes the band released their first full length album “Unity in Black” in 2011. This was received very well and quickly helped the band gain a fan base. More line-up changes followed this album and eventually in the January of 2016 saw the release of the second album entitled “Eroding Empires”. This album was a step in a slightly different direction and again was received positively from fans and reviewers alike. Master Charger have since played live across the UK, touring and playing festivals.
With a taste for the classic greats such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Mountain, Rainbow, Free, Atomic Rooster, Budgie, Jethro Tull and Cream, blended with the intensity of Metallica, Motorhead, Slayer, Venom, Discharge and Black Flag, to name but a few they bring a unique blend of ballsy, bluesy, groove fuelled, doom laden and at times Prog-tinted Rock ‘N’ Roll Sludge. This was later dubbed as a “SATANIC BLUES RUMBLE” When a fan best described the band’s sound after a show they played at Birmingham’s O2 Academy and has since stuck.
At the latter end of 2017, Master Charger signed to FatAngel Management and are set to release their “One for Sorrow” EP in 2018. This will see the band return to their original form but with an even heavier sound than before. The band will continue to bludgeon people live with their primitive thick wall of riffs and thunderous rhythm section as they continue to play more dates across the UK including a few more festival appearances.
