Diretone is a Danish groove metal band with a thick organic sound, combining heavy grooves, Scorching leads, down-tuned guitars, clean vocal delivery, and a traditional approach to metal songwriting. And instead of venturing into winding and overly technical sections, the focus is on accessibility and the bands impact as a hole. Diretone is essentially a live band a guaranteed to leave heads banging in front of the stage.
Since the band released their self titled debut album in late 2011, Diretone has grown a solid following across the globe. And In 2013 the band was invited to play a couple of shows at the “Meet in Beijing” festival in China.
In spring 2014 the band release a single called “Triggered” and also made their first video appearance for the song.
Diretone is working on new material and looking for new exotic places to leave their mark.
