With hip-hop roots like a hundred-year oak, and a nu-metal bite that tears through any hip-hop preconception, the steely-eyed quintet from South St. Louis known as Midwest Avengers has returned with some chromed-out speed funk.
More Bad Brains than Brand New Heavies, their music is as at home on both alt-rock and progressive hip-hop stages. The vocalists/emcees were all that was left of the all-emcee version of Midwest Avengers. After creative dissonance and deaths of two of the group members, something needed to change, and choosing between hip-hop''s ''keep it real'' elitism and the industry''s preference for high-polish was limiting their vision.
In 2004, just before the all-emcee version dispanded, they released "Bounce," a scorching track remixed by Midwest Avengers with rap-rock Mr. I. The song won several cage matches on the (former)105.7 The Pointe, and was #1 on the station for two weeks, beating out national acts like Rage against the Machine and Smashing Pumpkins.
During a two year hiatus, BC and So''n''So recruited bassist https://www.tradebit.comphet, guitarist TK, and drummer Zo for a new version of Midwest Avengers, one where the band is the group, and not just playing music behind the emcees. Today, with over 50 new songs and a 19-track CD, Evil Superheroes, Midwest Avengers are reborn, and here to rock you.
