Commenting on the sound of the band "We have posted three tracks from the incoming album so you can have an idea of what's coming.....very heavy music with state of the art vocals, getting back to the roots of true metal that many of us loved to listen back at the 90s but keeping it real according to today's metal "rules"...my brother likes to joke saying that POWERDRIVE reminds him somehow of SKID ROW on steroids"
