Stettler makes noise with new rock band

Stettler’s new four-piece rock band, “Sin Twister,” is up and running.

Stettler’s new four-piece rock band, “Sin Twister,” is up and running. Frontman Shaman Crowe said the band has only been playing together a few months, but is “fired in high.”

Crowe is lead singer of the group, along with Aldo Ferrusi on bass guitar, Wade Maillet on lead guitar and Jared Scheeler on drums.

Crowe and Ferrusi are from Stettler, while Maillet hails from Drumheller and Scheeler calls Red Deer home.

All have prior band experience.

They bill themselves as a rock, metal and punk band, but Crowe said some of their music is “a hybrid of all influences.”

He writes most of the material for the band.

Their sound has been compared to Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson.

Crowe was a part of a local band, “Power Sledge,” but said the songs he was writing didn’t fit their heavier style.

Crowe said the band members hadn’t planned to have any gigs until after they released their first album, but they’re already receiving bookings.

They had an engagement in Rocky Mountain House last weekend.

Crowe said the band has a couple of radio appearances coming up.

Sin Twister is working on its first album, which will be self-titled, and is expected to include 13 original songs.

Crowe encouraged fans to check out the band’s Facebook page and pick the songs they would like to see included on the album.

The band is recording an album in Crowe’s Stettler studio, Hangar 56, just north of Stettler on Highway 56.

He has his own record label.

Post-production work will be done in Calgary and graphics in the new album are being done by a graphics artist in Europe.

Band members said they plan to have a release party for the new CD album in December at Innisfail.

They said that location was convenient for rock fans from Red Deer and Calgary.

Crowe said the band might hold an event near Halloween.
