Dissident Souls




Dissident Souls is a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band reminiscent of the sounds and feel of bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Accept, Dokken, Michael Schenker Group, and Black Sabbath.

Well written songs that are progressive enough to inspire other musicians, yet having the hooks and melodies that the music enthusiasts will enjoy and want to play over and over again.

Blazing guitar solos, and musically poetic riffs that will capture the air guitarists attention and make them want to jam along.

We are currently producing and recording a 5 song CD at broadcast quality, and are auditioning singers to round out are line up.
Live gigs will start in January.
We have hired a well connected professional PR agency that is submitting our PR package to radio stations, magazines, and festivals.
Contact Ron at zronn(at)sbcglobal(dot)net if you would like to audition.
