The Atomic Bitchwax (US)

THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX is riff-centric power trio from New Jersey formed in 1993 now featuring two members of legendary space lords Monster Magnet – bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik and drummer Bob Pantella – alongside shred-tastic gunslinger Finn Ryan. TAB play "balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll that smashes space rock and proto-metal into a towering celebration of the riff" and have perfected their unique style of NYC hard rock that High Times appropriately tabbed, "thunder-boogie." They have inspired hundreds of developing rock and metal bands, but no group of musicians has come close to matching their unique style of fun, frenetic and formidable rock and roll.
