Dub Trio: DP Holmes (guitar); Stu 'Bassie' Brooks (bass guitar); Joe Tomino (drums).
Few musical genres appear as mutually exclusive as do metal and dub. Intrepid musical explorers Dub Trio, however, seek to combine the closed, focused bombast of heavy metal with the wide-open spaces of dub-reggae. COOL OUT AND COEXIST, the group's third album, is a live recording from an outing at Union Pool in Brooklyn. Dub Trio build a relentless sonic assault through charging guitars and machine-gun drums, taking dub out of the realm of Jamaican studio productions and into the unfamiliar arena of live punk metal.
