Arouradrop take influences from many genres including metal, rap, bluegrass, funk, and many others. Arouradrop originally formed in 2000 but disbanded for personal reasons, we reunited in 2005 and have been hard at it ever since we all played in different bands through out the our time apart and added to our bag o' tricks. Our sound has changed very much since our original style but we feel that all the change has been for the better. Our political views and moral stand points are the bases of many of our songs, although we are not bound to only politically driven songs. The members of Arouradrop are truly diverse in our personal influences and we believe this comes across in our music, we hope you agree.
