Brace yourself for Venejer! One of the South Florida’s premiere hard rock acts recognized by Away-Team.com as “Truly, the most devastating Metal with a radio-friendly flair that I’ve ever heard”. (Craig Stegall) and by the NewTimes as “One of the few bands from Miami-Dade to focus on a Radio-ready, but pure hard rock sound”(Arielle Castillo) While drawing influences from bands like Disturbed, Shinedown, and Sevendust, Venejer’s music is completely unique; creating a sound that is fresh and new to the ear. Powerful vocals, melodic harmonies, hard-pounding modern beats, and ripping guitar solos are at the core of the hard rock quintet, making their sound difficult to mistake and unforgettable.
Based out of South Florida and formed in late 2004 by Lead vocalist Juan Amato and Lead guitar player Jose M. Gonzalez. Venejer slowly began to build a local reputation. In 2007, they self released their debut album “The Fourth Prime”, with which they toured to Los Angeles and Tennessee, and received an excellent response from the national listeners as well as the local crowd.
In early 2009, Venejer began working with well-known producer, Paul Trust (Atom Smash, Endo, Diecast) and subsequently released E.P. “Trapped Inside”. The E.P. has received stellar reviews and been classified 10 out of 10 stars “it’s simply mind-blowing that the guys have created something so perfect their first step out into the mainstream” (Stegall). Venejer has also performed with commercially recognized bands such as Static-X, Sevendust, and Nonpoint. In addition, throughout the month of September, 2010 Venejer’s “The Haunting” and “Beast in Me” were both featured during prime time on CBS Sports Network as background music for major NFL and NCAA football games. With “Trapped Inside”, Venejer is ready to leave their mark in the crowd with their energetic and impacting live performance!
Some examples of Venejer’s performance credits include: Sevendust, Static-X, Nonpoint, Hurt, Burn Halo, Egypt Central, and Since October.
