A Thin Line
Slant: to take a diagonal course, direction, or path.
Just like its definition, Slant is nothing ordinary. All members come from various cultural backgrounds and life experiences that influence their unique form of rock. Mix together cultures from Bangladesh, Mexico, and America then add musical inspiration from Deftones, System of A Down, Tool and Nirvana, the result is Slant.
With Fahim Zaman on vocals/lead guitar, Munir Haque on rhythm guitar, Josh Chastain on bass, and James Arce on drums, Slant has been bringing forth pure hard rocking music since they have formed. Call Slant hard rock, power rock, progressive, or alternative music; Slant is giving us all a taste of their perspectives on the world through “music.” SLANT recorded their debut album “A Thin Line,” (signed to & released by Gotham Records) in 2005, featuring the emotionally powerful and original singles “Broken Wings” & “Trust,” rounded out by an album-full of tracks conveying thoughts & emotions that almost everyone can relate to, no matter where they’ve been or what age they are.
Slants dedication and drive to make creative and insightful music for their fans, has landed them recognition worldwide. They have traveled internationally on behalf of The Armed Forces Entertainment and independently throughout the USA bringing positivity and inspiration to listeners.
Slant have toured along the U.S. West Coast and have been the opener for headlining acts such as: Alien Ant Farm, Taproot, Puddle of Mudd, Silversun Pickups (NM Fest.), Hed PE (Budweiser Music Fest. other shows), P.O.D (Sunset Strip Music Festival 2011) Hoobastank (Sunset Strip Music Festival 2013), Adema (Bakersfield./Los Angeles/ Orange County), Powerman 5000, Cold and more. Slant has ventured overseas to play shows for the United States troops beginning 2007 and will continue to perform for the troops through 2015. Their music has been featured on the PS3and Xbox game “Supremacy MMA”, along with licenses in various television & entertainment resources (i.e. G4 episode of ICONS, Lionsgate Film “Beatdown”). Slant’s music has hit numerous college & mainstream radio station playlist/rotations in multiple states including KROQ 106.7 Los Angeles.
Slant is in the studio writing new music with Sameer Bhattacharya (Flyleaf) and Dave “Chile” Moreno (Puddle of Mudd). The band is giving the world a fresh new take on how life is still good no matter how hard it can get, how hard it will get and that all obstacles can be overcome. As always Slant’s releases are full of tracks you will like, love, relate with and rock the **** out to.
