Tallah and New Fiction bring New Nu Metal to Beauty Bar Las Vegas

TALLAH played a downtown date at the Beauty Bar, opening for A Killer’s Confession on tour, and the band made a big first impression on the Las Vegas crowd. The band features some noted members, comprised of Max Portnoy (son of Mike Portnoy) on drums, YouTube as support for feature artist Juston Bonitz on vocals, Andrew Cooper on bass and Derrick Schneider on guitar at this Vegas show. The band instantly grabbed the attention of the crowd as they took the stage - Portnoy standing on the drums with hair flying, Bonitz jumping up on amps and screaming lyrics, Cooper kicking and head banging on bass and Schneider shredding faces on guitar.

The band calls itself Pennsyvania Nu-Core, and cites influences from Korn, Slipknot and Deftones. The live show is an insane non-stop power metal score, and visually over-the-top energy and motion from everyone in the band. The music mixes heavy metal tones and melodic phrases, and Bonitz is capable of both screamo verses and sonorous choruses. Tallah is new on the scene, but is definitely leaving a footprint and an impact as they hit new audiences on this tour.

Tallah's first EP, No One Should Read This, is out now and available here at Amazon and Spotify
