Atello

The Big Payoff

Comprised of four musicians that have been kicking around the New York music scene for the past decade or so, Atello has all of the things that fans of melodic hard rock are looking for. Borrowing influences from bands like Dokken, Firehouse and Bon Jovi, with a level of production that belies their independent release, Atello is playing an uncompromising style of metal that we donít hear enough of these days. Playing with the energy of a band that has nothing to lose and everything to prove, Atello might be a name that we hear more about in time to come.--Scott
