Imagine constructing a Frankenstein monster with the body parts of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Guns n’ Roses then feed it steroids and you would have the sound of Thirteen. Formed by “The Architect”, guitarist and Justin Bieber antichrist, Dan Mahanger.
Thirteen’s Mission: Make bad ass music in the same caliber of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Black Label Society, Guns n Roses, & Alice n’ Chains, help carry the rock n roll torch and give rock music fans the much needed music that is needed in 2016.
With the help from producer Rocco Guarino, Dan Mahanger has pieced together what many hardcore rock fans are calling one of the best new rock bands of today. Thirteen’s debut EP was released in March 2015, titled Volume 1, which includes an array of explosive guitar driven rock songs such as Romeo Kiss, The Siren, and Satin Doll. The band then takes a 180 degree turn and show you their diversity with ballads I Let Go and Time.
The feedback from fans has been ,”I can listen to your songs on repeat all day because they kick so much ass!” The first single, “The Siren”, produced by Rocco immediately hit # 1 on the D.C. rock charts within a week of being released. The songs were recorded at Scott Weiland’s Lavish Studios before Scott’s passing.
