The New-Jersey based RIVERA BOMMA was formed late 2000. Named after founding musicians, vocalist JOHN BOMMA (previously with HADES), and guitarist and multi-instrumentalist
ROD RIVERA, the line-up is completed by TAZ ROBLES on bass &
drummer STEVEN D. RIKER.
Their strong guitar driven debut album, INVISIBLE FORCE, released through SECRET PORT RECORDS in 2002, received favourable reviews around the globe, which encouraged the band greatly to tour, write, rehearse, record, and generally prepare for the important second album, I AM GOD, which will be released on MAUSOLEUM RECORDS in February 2006.
JACK FROST, guitarist for SEVEN WITCHES and BRONX CASKET CO. introduced RIVERA BOMMA to MAUSOLEUM, after hearing the
impressive album-opening title-track in the studio where both bands were working.
RIVERA BOMMA are a Christian Hard Rock band, playing a mixture of traditional hard rock and melodic American power metal - at times a hint progressive, due to the presence of majestic, but subtle keyboards. ROD and JOHN have written some epic anthems which they perform over pulsating rhythms, revealing the influences of their 70s heroes, such as DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW. The power and range of JOHN BOMMA’S voice is indeed comparable to an IAN GILLAN or RONNIE JAMES DIO, whilst ROD RIVERA is a guitar virtuoso parallel to RICHIE BLACKMORE or MICHAEL SCHENKER, occasionally also shredding MALMSTEEN-style, as well as playing some dazzling Latin Flamenco guitar.
RIVERA BOMMA are definitely not concerned with being part of any “flavour of the month” trend, rather they write and play from the heart!
