Josh Homme in a sludgy marijuana grinder
Elevators to the Grateful Sky was started by Sandro Di Girolamo (Ex Undead Creep) and Giuseppe Ferrara - both in now defunct brutal death metal duo Omega - in Palermo, 2011. Soon joined by Bonham-worshipping drummer Giulio Scavuzzo (Palmanana, Horcus etc.) and by guitarist Giorgio Trombino (Haemophagus, Sergeant Hamster, Furious Georgie, Smuggler Brothers etc.), the band knew what to do right from the start. Creating music in the vein of early stoner/grunge and 70's rock while still trying to add personal touches to the mix.
From doom metal dirges to cool, pop-like lines or even psych-reggae sections, the Elevators aren't afraid to slide from the most grateful sky to the obscure bowels of hell.
ETTGS's live activity has mostly taken place in Palermo: now, with their first full-length album Cloud Eye released by Transubstans records, the guys are willing to reach more and more people, venues and places.
