Metal Mania Live at Gremlen Studios

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.

Introducing Black Door Pub Rock Night

Gremlen Studios and Waterlife Music present:
Black Door Pub Rock Night Friday August 23rd 2013

Fire It Up
This is what happens when you take a soul-searching rapper, a hard-rock drummer, a funky bassist, and experimental guitarist and lock them up in a rehearsal room for a few months. This is FIRE IT UP. Finally unlocked and ready to show what they got.

Polarizer is a four-piece alternative rock band out of Chicago, though none of the members are originally from the city. Ian Palmer is from Indiana, Ben Ludwig split time between Tennessee and Minnesota, and both Taylor Brennan and Stan Tencza are from Rhode Island. All four members moved to Chicago to write and perform music.

70’s punk rock tunes laced with Ace Frehley style lead guitar.

Arsenal Road
Arsenal Road are from Chicago. We play rock and drink Mountain Dew & Miller High Life. We drive vehicles with excellent storage capacity.
