UniversalDice

Infidels Records artists UniversalDice (formerly known as UniversaleDice.com and as Universal Dice) is a most unique band; just beneath their accessible, melodic and beautifully played and arranged modern/classic rock sound lay an ambitious and rich lyrical content that challenges pop music orthodoxy.

Infidels Records artists UniversalDice (formerly known as UniversaleDice.com and as Universal Dice) is a most unique band; just beneath their accessible, melodic and beautifully played and arranged modern/classic rock sound lay an ambitious and rich lyrical content that challenges pop music orthodoxy. There are few bands that not only make you think, but can take you to another place musically while they force you to re-think what was once taken for granted. The songs, written and produced by Gerry Dantone, are always relevant and usually intensely emotion and often unique in the rock music arena. At the same time their memorable melodies recall the qualities admired in the Who, the Beatles, Green Day and the Killers even though their songs never sound like any of these classic band's tunes in particular. Songwriter, singer and political and philosophical writer/activist Gerry Dantone has perfected a writing style that is first and foremost humanistic, but also coherent, provocative and multi-layered. In addition, the band's primary themes are as big as they get; life and death and meaning and purpose. No other band is as prepared to tackle these subjects as UniversalDice. Bandmates Bob Barcus on lead guitar and Eddie Canova on bass are among Long Island's finest session players and are given a chance to stretch. Newest members are longtime Long Island musical giants Walt Sargent and Vincent Crici who add their keyboard support to the band's latest tunes. Courtesy of UniversalDice.com « hide
