Metal Mania Live at Gremlen Studios

cropped-header4.jpg

Gremlen Recording Studio and Waterlife present Metal Mania
Featuring Lasting Vengeance and Obscured In EXILE

Lasting Vengeance?
Based in North Aurora, IL, Lasting Vengeance blends elements of death metal, grindcore, thrash and doom metal into a uniquely heavy sound. The three-piece is composed of Brian (Guitar, Vocals), Jeff (Bass, Vocals) and Marty (Drums). Prior to forming LV, Marty and Jeff were the cornerstones of Trepanation, a long-running Chicago thrash outfit. Marty’s resume includes stints with Natural Disaster, Limbo Stroll and Stormer. Brian’s past bands range from punk to grind core, but most recently include local death metal favorite, Divorced. Lasting Vengeance came together as a project while Trepanation was in search of a basist and Brian was on hiatus from Divorced. Once rolling, the project quickly became a full-time band. Formed in 2004, the band can be seen regularly in Chicago-area venues. Please check the list of upcoming shows for appearance details.

Obscured In Exile
With the main focus on melodious agression, Obscured In Exile explores the boundaries of heaviness, while occasionally dipping into spacey tranquillity, creating depth and emotion. Combining that with unique percussive style and vocals that range from bleedingly abrasive to calm and soothing creates a harmonious balance between fury and composure.

This show will be live on the stream below:

Orion Nine

Formed in 2000, Orion Nine has spent years refining their sound to become known as one of Chicagoland’s best performers in their genre. They have played venues from Florida to Los Angeles while sharing the stage with many national record artists, such as Drowning Pool, HellYeah, Egypt Central, Burn Halo and Diecast to name a few.
The band enjoys as much publicity as possible, being featured in Revolver Magazine twice (2005 and 2007). They were included on the 2003 and 2004 Levi’s Jean Sampler that included other artists as Saliva, Atreyu, Shinedown, and the Black-Eyed Peas. The band was also featured in the Traumahead Sportz paintball DVD and Twangled View of Havasu 2 and 3 DVDs. The also appeared live on the NWA’s Wrestling Showcase.
The 2012 release of their new EP, “The Econolodge Sessions”, and singles like “Kiss the Sun” and “Brass Tax” show the band’s ever-evolving approach to creating new music.

Kadooge

Aurora, Ill.-based quartet Kadooge starts each of the three tracks on its self-titled debut EP with a basic hard rock arrangement before shifting into more active and elaborate instrumental passages. Lead vocalist/guitarist Pat Goode conveys his emotionally-charged lyrics with a strong voice while guitarist Quentin Dover frequently takes off on new adventures. Bassist Aerie Dover and drummer Tony Montana also help listeners navigate the shifting tempos on the engaging “No Surprise” and “Broken Up In Pieces.”
Terrence Flamm ~ Illinois Entertainer

This is definitely the sound of accomplished musicians; all the elements work as layers, and the band has a keen sense of dynamics and ensemble playing.
Erik Oldman ~ Rock in Chicago Magazine

As King

We’re a mix between Machine Head, Mudvayne, and Meshuggah with Lamb of God style vocals and a trippy Pink Floyd essence.Killer stage presence to top it off. We’ve been through the trials and tribulations of our failed marriages that we called our old bands and want to take the scene by storm with our own breed of metal. Were not the fastest, nor are we the heaviest, because that’s not what we want to be. What we are is groovy, catchy, and powerful, simplistic yet technical at the same time melodic while brutal and in your face.

Klas Rock / Metal Nights: May 2013 Edition

Klas Rock/Metal May 2013

Taking time off from writing some tunes to update the site and announce the upcoming May dates we have planned. We had some cancellations in the April dates and we are excited to announce (like always) this all star line up for the upcoming May Klas Rock and Metal Nights.

May 24th Rock Night:
A Friend Called Fire
A FRIEND CALLED FIRE is a high-octane rock trio hailing from Chicago, IL. With a foundation based upon an infectious rhythmic assault, the band’s music is a pairing of heavy grooves based in hard rock influence contrasted with delicate soundscapes and fused with compelling hooks and vocal melodies both genuine and purposeful. The band’s diversity is apparent in their intense electric performances as well as spirited acoustic sets and proves that much like their name implies, A Friend Called Fire in many ways creates and destroys with passion and power.

The trio is quickly making headway in their native Chicago in addition to many regional and national markets through relentless touring, marketing and promotion efforts.

A Friend Called Fire’s new single “The Lightning” presents a departure from their traditional sound, with a stronger emphasis on roots music influence and vocal harmony while retaining the energy and delivery for which the band is perhaps best known. The band is also hard at work on an upcoming documentary project inspired by their new music and based in the concepts of friendship and communication in the 21st century titled The Next Great Fire.

A true working-class independent musical force, A Friend Called Fire handles all booking, marketing, promotions, artwork design and merchandising completely in-house with the highest level of detail and professionalism. They have performed over 200 shows in the span of only a few years, including six independent U.S. tours.

Jolly Korea
Jolly Korea is 5 piece rock group from Chicago, IL. They are fronted by Eugene Kalsted, dual guitar work supplied by Peter Nafziger and Kevin Kalal, and propelled by a powerhouse rhythm section featuring Roger Connelly on bass guitar, and Matt Nafziger behind the drum kit.

Trigger Fish
This powerhouse trio’s influences are good music, real life experiences, politics and people. Musically their influences range from Jimi Hendrix and Social Distortion, to Incubus and Primus. They would call themselves an experimental rock band with a gritty reggae edge, but their balanced blend of aggressive guitar, explosive drums, and clean rhythmic bass come together beautifully to create something that can’t be classified. When you listen to Trigger Fish’s unique combination of dark lyrics, soulful melodies, and radical yet emotional transitions, you really get to go along for the ride. It’s an all around sensory experience.

Electric White
New band based in Chicago/Berwyn. Three track demo coming soon! They love and support local music, art, and the people that help make it possible. You Should As Well.

May 31st Metal Night:
Epitasis
Epitasis is a Death Metal Band hailing from Chicago, IL. They hope to deliver slamming blackened riffs and devastating solos to a town near you.

Crown Me King
You can download their music for free at http://crownmeking.bandcamp.com/, nuff said!!

I, Goliath
Spawned from a desire to create something unique and original, Chicago-based I, GOLIATH forges elements of metal, post-rock, progressive, and hardcore into something simply known as “VIGILANTE METAL”. I, GOLIATH started as a one man project by guitarist Phil Hawkins (ex-Neofathom), and expanded after recruiting bassist Dan Vales (The Great Kali), guitarist Ivan Cordova (ex-Castillo/ ex-Neofathom) and drummer Dennis Paterkiewicz. I, GOLIATH looks to complete its lineup and showcase its brand of intensity and thought provoking melodies in and around the Chicagoland-area.

Phase Extermination
Phase Extermination is a Metal band. Members prefer not to use labels, instead describe themselves as a mixture of different metal sub-genres. Styles of vocals used include: low growls, mid screams, high screams, over-driven singing and clean vocals. Guitar riffs range from slow heavy riffs to fast and melodic riffs accompanied by fast double pedal drumming.

We hope to see everyone this for Friday for Klas Metal Night with Veils of Darkness, Human Stew and Masters of Reality! (Sabbath Tribute) and if you haven’t heard the new Rock In Chicago podcast, you can listen to it here!

We have an awesome crew that helps make these shows possible and we thank you. We all do it because we enjoy the memories we share with the talented musicians that visit Klas to perform for all of us! See you soon!
