NEW HAMPSHIRE HARD ROCK
Afterimage's Latest EP
Review: Dead Rhetoric
The best music has withstood the test of time through three key elements: passion, raw energy, and sincerity. While many popular bands have been commercially successful through oversaturation and over the top production, none have aged quite as nicely as those who stayed true to the art of their music. Afterimage, hailing from southern New Hampshire, mixes a unique blend of hard rock, alternative metal, experimental, and prog rock, creating a heavy and passionate new sound that is sure to catch your attention.
The members of the band formed Afterimage shortly after meeting each other at Keene State College in the fall of 2016. Throughout their college tenure, the band wrote original material as much as they could in between classes, and played shows across New England almost every weekend. Upon graduating in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020, Afterimage released their rage-filled EP, Temperance.
Temperance was met with great critical acclaim. It earned a 9/10 from DeadRhetoric.com, citing that Afterimage had a “hypnotic, captivating sound,” Boston Rock Radio applauded the EP, going on to say that “...Afterimage could very well be the next generation’s Aerosmith,” The August 2020 issue of Power Play Magazine gave Temperance and 8/10 rating, with specific praise towards guitarist Brandon Curcio.
Afterimage have played some of the most esteemed venues across New England, including the Worcester Palladium in Worcester, MA, the Webster Theater in Hartford, CT, the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA, and Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, NH. They have opened up for such acts as Morbid Angel, Secrets, and Hank Von Hell of Turbonegro.
The band is currently hard at work writing and recording new studio material, creating their own YouTube comedy series, and playing as many shows as they possibly can. Check their Facebook page for up to date show listings.
FFO: Tool, Deftones, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, and Candlebox
"Watching Afterimage perform on stage is getting the ultimate live experience people go to rock shows for! Raw, unleashed energy of a garage punk band combined with expert skills of academically trained musicians drawing from progressive rock influences simply makes it impossible to remain indifferent."

"I’ve worked with a lot bands over the years and as a professional guitarist back in the 70's and 80's, I know real talent when I see/hear it – and that’s Afterimage for sure... Afterimage is proof that the whole can be greater than just the sum of its parts. These five individual musicians have joined to create a unique musical group that you’ll never forget once you’ve seen or heard them perform. They don’t play like anyone else. They don’t sound like anyone else... because they will never be like anyone else."
