Double Eagle Standard is a Grunge/Metal band out of Buffalo, N.Y. Their highly aggressive sound comes from both metal and grunge influences, with overtones of several classic rock groups in their solo's and overall melodic structure. The sound produced tends to be a sweet contrast of both thick muddy riffs and sharp almost harsh nuances. Their stage presence and showmanship as a group is engaging and highly exciting. If a comparison could be made it might be said that they are blending of the melancholy of grunge with the high energy, high action of metal. The band formed in 2003. There are four members in the band. Tom Scott the guitarist, Juice Nuk'em the bassist, Joel Victori the drummer, and Mike Bogucki the vocalist.
Tom Scott-19- Heavily influenced by Metallica and tends to have an inclination towards heavy music. His influences and tastes tend to be very modern and bring the elements of both speed and extremely well structured riffs and songs to the bands overall feel.
Juice Nuk'em-24- Ukrainian immigrant influenced by both eastern and western music. His western influences tend to dominate his play but his eastern heritage sometimes makes itself heard in his highly unique baselines. His primary influences are Primus and Metallica
Joel Victori-18- Highly aggressive, standout drummer. His highly motivated, sometimes unorthodox style has become the backbone of the music of Double Eagle Standard. His influences range from a background of light classic rock, blues, and folk music to modern heavy metal like Hatebreed and Korn.
Mike Bogucki-25- lyricist and front man for the band. Talented singer with a gruff sound coupled with incredible sustain and presence of voice. His influences range from the Doors and Pink Floyd to Alice n' Chains and Stone Temple Pilots.
As a band their major influences are Alice n' Chains, Metallica, Primus, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and, Godsmack.
The band recorded their demo at Outer Limit Studio's Buffalo and IDS Studios Niagria Falls NY and has been featured on Buffalo's rock station WEDG 103.3 The Edge
In short we're four guys who hate almost all of the bands who are popular today and were so alieniated by the market and radio in general that we decided we could do a better Job. We're poor, hungry, overly competitive musicians who hate where they are in life, not famous, and will do anything to make it as professional musicians. Refer to the music for any other questions. Later D.E.S.
