ROCK SUGAR, new metal/pop band who has generated more than 350,000 hits on YouTube, is receiving raves all across the nation about their debut CD release, REIMAGINATOR. The CD has been picked up by classic rock stations and online radio stations nationwide by word-of-mouth from coast to coast, with some stations airing listening parties, playing the entire album from cover-to-cover.
Combining the best-loved heavy metal riffs of the ‘80s with the melodies of the world’s favorite 80’s pop classics, ROCK SUGAR “re-imaginated” the greatest pop songs of yesterday with heavy metal musicianship and showmanship.
Led by lead vocalist Jess Harnell – an Emmy nominee (named by “Variety” as one of the Top 10 voiceover actors) and one of L.A.’s premier studio singers and Chuck Duran, each track on the CD includes amalgamated versions of classics performed “metal style”- from Don't Stop The Sandman: Don't Stop Believin' (JOURNEY) -Enter Sandman (METALLICA); to We Will Kickstart Your Rhapsody: Kickstart My Heart (MOTLEY CRUE) - Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You (QUEEN); to Crazy Girl: Crazy Train (OZZY) - Jessie's Girl (RICK SPRINGFIELD); to Shook Me Like A Prayer: Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC) - Like A Prayer (MADONNA); and many more…
Here’s what some early critics are saying:
“The first full length release from Rock Sugar is a total treat…if you want something that can make you laugh, rock out and gaze questioningly at your speakers while you wonder what they’ve done this time, then you’ll want to pick this thing up right quick.” – Pollstar
“When they took the stage, it was a case of men and boys compared to what had gone before. Wow! Now I’ve seen some things by some bands in my time, but this was a masterstroke…I think I can safely say that this was one of the best performances at a Firefest ever.”—Powerplay Magazine
“This band played an absolutely storming set, had great fun in doing so, and got the crowd eating out of their hands.”—Fireworks Magazine

REIMAGINATOR is based on the concept of a heavy metal band stuck on a deserted island, with a 13-year old’s 80’s pop collection being the only music keeping them company. Rescued 20 years later, ROCK SUGAR has now arrived.
