Scorpiknox (pronounced scorp-in-ox) is a rock band for people who like catchy guitar riffs and sing-along vocal hooks. Inspired by Iron Maiden, Faith No More, System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age, and HORSE the Band, Scorpiknox blends their favorite ingredients into a unique kind of radio-friendly hard-rock/punk/metal.
Song topics range from the gritty realities involved with playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons to modern society's tiresome obsession with celebrity and wealth. Scorpiknox is thoughtfully eclectic with their lyrics, leveraging absurdity and social commentary in equal parts.
Musically, Scorpiknox considers themselves a rock/punk/metal hybrid. They've been called "very punky" by keyboard players not interested in collaboration as well as "not as good as Jack White" by a hipster art student one time. Recently, another band's drummer was like "Yeah, you guys are really tight. Can I have one of those cigarettes?" With those kinds of critical accolades driving them on, Scorpiknox is ready to soar into the new decade upon the wings of a Rock & Roll freedom eagle.
