Sensational alternative metal bands P.O.D. and Alien Ant Farm are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Payable on Death (abbreviated P.O.D.) was formed in San Diego in 1992 and currently consists of Sonny Sandoval (lead vocals), Marcos Curiel (lead guitar, programming, backing vocals), Traa Daniels (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Wuv Bernardo (drums, percussion, rhythm guitar, and backing vocals). While their musical style can be broadly classified as alternative metal (a genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal), it’s best described as a blend of Christian metal (a form of heavy metal music usually defined by lyrics and performers dedicated to Christianity), rap rock (a genre that fuses vocal and instrumental elements of hip hop with various forms of rock), rap metal (a subgenre of rap rock and alternative metal that combines hip hop with heavy metal, usually consisting of heavy metal guitar riffs, funk metal elements, rapped vocals, and sometimes turntables), and hard rock (a loosely defined subgenre of rock music featuring heavy use of aggressive vocals, distorted electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and often accompanied with pianos and keyboards). They’ve had a stellar career with 10 studio albums and they’ve received many accolades including an American Music Award, an Echo Award, and 2 San Diego Music Awards.
