Real Songwriting with magical instrumentation throughout the album. There’s a sincerity and truth in the pain and heartache captured on NO GOOD TO ANYONE that you simply don’t hear in most protools constructed songs today. Pummeling and destructive, with grace and reckless precision, NO GOOD TO ANYONE tells all of it’s secrets to the listener. In an extremely powerful and understated way, the emotions of love and hate are cast into destruction. You realize the story you’ve been living Through the audio on this album is a tale of pushing past the pain and fighting for survival. In a world of false metal, TODAY IS THE DAY and Steve Austin stand out as groundbreaking musical innovators in a world of pretenders. Utilizing a wide vocal range of attacks, Steve’s vocals on “No Good To Anyone” range anywhere from monster like percussion to hypnotic lullaby singing. All the while electric guitars come smashing down on you like building girders. The drum and bass rhythm section performs as a killing machine, but with taste and diversity in approach. One second they’re ripping away at Double kick drum onslaughts and the next minute it’s a Miles Davis rhythm interlude. Overall, this type of true real songwriting, not trying to fit in, is something that hasn’t been heard since Hendrix.
For 27 Years, Steve Austin has been a force to be reckoned with on guitar. Self-taught, Steve developed his one of a kind unique playing style in the basement of his parents home. Conventional music never made sense to Steve. It was always the complex or open ended musics that attracted his attention and ear. In 1997, Steve was endorsed by Paul Reed Smith Guitar Company. That same year Mesa Boogie, one of the premier guitar amp companies in the world also endorsed Steve. For 22 Years, with a PRS guitar in hand, plugged into Mesa Boogie Mark III, Steve has inspired has and had a hand in the biggest bands in metal and hardcore today. Trailblazing tours with Napalm Death, The Melvins, Nailbomb, set the stage for what would become lifetime of creating some of the emotionally damaging music ever. Festival after festival from Hellfest to Roskilde, TODAY IS THE DAY has toured and played with some of the greatest artists of our time.
