The story goes that one day, as daydreaming students, the members of Massive were asked what they wanted to do with their lives. They simply responded with: I wanna rock. And rock they did. People told them to turn it down, but all they had to say to those people time and time again was No! No, no, no, no, no. People told them not to play, but all they had to say to those people time and time again was No! No, no, no, no, no. They simply wanted to rock, and so rock they did. And so within six months of coming together they were playing showcase gigs in Los Angeles. Then they released their debut album Full Throttle, an album with so much rock it came with a warning label. It scored a stack of great press, including a number of five-star reviews from the likes of PlanetMosh and Metal Temple. Last year they smashed it on their tour across the UK and Europe before turning home to begin work on album number two. They actually had such a good time in Europe that they’ll be relocating there by year’s end, so with that news I think you know what you have to do.
