PowerTribe ist eine Heavy Metal Band, ein von Gitarren angetriebenes Power-Trio mit einer wilden Frontfrau.

Angeführt von dem wilden Operngesang von Missy Percifield und der virtuosen Gitarrenarbeit von Darren Stroud, während sie von dem temperamentvollen sowie anspruchsvollen Schlagzeugspiel von John Chomisky angetrieben wird, ist PowerTribe ein dreiteiliges Ensemble, das zu jeder Zeit für Energie sorgt.

Missy Percifield, das einstige Wunderkind in der klassischen Musik, gab die strengen Grenzen des Operngesangs für die Rock’n’Roll-Wellen von Los Angeles auf. Sie holte Darren Stroud aus Indiana, als sie seine Solo-Talente auf der Gitarre hörte und begann, ihren Katalog zu schreiben. Diese Band wurde vollständig, als John Chominsky hinzu kam. Die drei wurden das Power-Trio, das als „PowerTribe“ bekannt wurde.

Unterstützt von einem riesigen Katalog (instrumentalem Gitarrenspiel, einem stimmlichen Original und ein paar personalisierten Covers) und mit künstlerischen Liedern, guter Chemie und einem höheren musikalischen Können, bietet PowerTribe einen kriegerischen Ansatz mit gut gespielten Texten – getrieben von sozialen Landschaften oder menschlichem Interesse.

Missys Gesangsstil wurde mit Kate Bushs Ansatz und Nancy Wilson verglichen. Darrens Gitarrenarbeit mit der Technik von Randy Rhoads und der Stimmung von Joe Satriani. Und Johns Schlagzeug-Stil wurde mit Mike Portnoy und dessen grundsolidem Gefühl verglichen.

Von denjenigen, die PowerTribe bei einer Show live miterlebt haben, wird gesagt: „Eine vielseitigere weibliche RUSH, gemischt mit Satriani und ein Hauch einer melodischeren Arch Enemy…“ – alles in einem. Diese qualifizierten Musiker sind aufmerksame Künstler, die zielstrebig und prägnant in ihrem Fortschritt sind und sich der Schaffung guter, zugänglicher Musik in diesem Windschatten des Rocks gewidmet haben.

Einflüsse: DARREN’S Einflüsse: Michael Schenker, Randy Rhoads, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Brad Paisley, Albert King, Grant Green… MISSY’S Einflüsse: Beethoven… JOHN’S Einflüsse: Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Gavin Harrison, Greg Bissonette, Scott Rockenfield.

PowerTribe is a female fronted, guitar-driven, power trio, heavy metal band.

Fronted by the wild-child operatic vocals of Missy Percifield, and echoed by the virtuosic guitar work of Darren Stroud while being driven by the spirited complex drumming of John Chomisky, this threepiece ensemble generates electricity any time on any stage.

Missy Percifield, the once-child prodigy, gave up the stringent boundaries of classical ponds for the waves of rock ‘n’ roll of Los Angeles. She exported Darren Stroud out of Indiana when she heard his solo talents on guitar, and began writing their catalog. This band came together when John
Chominsky was added to the mix. The three became the power trio known as “PowerTribe”.

Backed by a huge catalog (of guitar instrumental originals, vocal originals, and a few personalized covers) and taking the more artistic road with good songs, chemistry, and higher level music prowess, PowerTribe delivers a warrior-like approach with lyrics that are well-crafted – driven by social landscapes or human interest.

Missy’s vocal style has been compared to the likeness of Kate Bush in approach and Nancy Wilson in vibe; Darren’s guitar work to that of Randy Rhoads in technique and Joe Satriani in vibe; and John’s drumming style has been compared to Mike Portnoy with his rock-solid feel.

PowerTribe has been described by those that have witnessed a show as “… a more-diverse female RUSH mixed with Satriani and a hint of a more melodic Arch Enemy …” all rolled into one. These skilled musicians are vigilant artists, convicted to the music, purposeful and concise in their progress and dedicated to creating good, accessible music in this slipstream of rock.

„It’s hard to believe that such a powerful voice comes from such a small frame. She possesses the voice of a giant.“ – MTV.com

“PowerTribe, hailing from California, are a cool power trio that is a part Power, part Prog, and all Metal band. With the brilliant guitar of Darren Stroud and the distinct voice of bassist/keyboardist Missy Percifield, they create a whirlwind of sound that is fairly unique, brought to the forefront with the drums of John Chominsky.” – Myglobalmind Online Magazine (Chris Martin)

““Arise” leads off the album, with an air of mystery and a heavy riff. Missy brings powerful vocals, subdued at first and then she lets them rip in the chorus. Darren and John hold down the bottom end with steady riffing and drumming.” – Metal-Temple (Dave Campbell)

“An explosion of your senses blow your blood cells to energise your body to feel so bloody good. Influences ranging from Rainbow, Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, Queensryche, Europe, Judas Priest, Loudness… This is a masterpiece and needs to get followed and loved” – The Metal Mag Online Magazine

„Overall, PowerTribe’s Prepare For Battle is an excellent release, blending American metal / hard rock with elements of the Eurpoean power and symphonic metal genres. Fans of the more aggressive genres, as well as those preferring female-fronted metal owe it to themselves to give PowerTribe a listen. Very highly recommended!“ – HardrockHaven.net (Joe Mis)

On Darren Stroud: “A driving song with a big fat bang, and, as the tune unfolds, more and more shredo-rific moments make the scene. – Guitar Player Magazine
