Rob Evol / Bio

Born Robert Joseph Davis, Rob Evol comes from a history of musical influences. As a young child he was introduced to the sounds of country by his step-father from the high twang of Hank Williams Sr. to the harmonies of Alabama, Country music could always be found at home and weekend camping trips. While visiting his grand mother his older uncles would influence the early metal bands to his ear and personality. From the piercing screams of vocalists such as Rob Halford (Judas Priest) and Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) the young Evol was instantly drawn to it. During the summer of 87' He was introduced to guitar and a few local bands helped him learn the basics well enough to join his first band. During high school his guitar playing continued to improve and he enrolled into choir class where he captured the class with his original song writing skills. 1993 started a lifetime friendship with Robert Wiechert, Where they crafted a love for playing metal songs from artists such as Metallica and Slayer. In the summer of 93' They took 2 original songs into the studio and recorded the first demo, Aboding Darkness. As they progressed together so did the reaching out for other influences and they began to learn covers from country groups such as Garth Brooks, Alabama and Brooks & Dunn. In 1999 Rob Evol went to watch a local country band perform and was asked to sing "Long haired country boy" by The Charlie Daniels Band which lead to the formation of Rebel Creek. A high-energy country show mixed with country and rock made for a 5 year run on the road and a learning of what the road can do to an artist, as alcohol and partying became the motif for Rebel Creek, Rob knew it was time to return home. After a long break he joined with members of a local metal band to front Incidious, a high energy metal band influenced by Pantera and Lamb Of God. Incidious released there 4 song demo in winter of 2010 and opened for the guitarist of White Zombie. 2012 Came a influencing change when Rob heard the songs "Hicktown" and "Johnny Cash" by Jason Aldean, The country flame was lit again. Now with the influences of all the past years experience, Rob Evol strives to create a country sound like no other. Working his craft of metal riffs with some chicken pickin mixed in, his idea of "Hellbilly" country is coming to life. Where he intends to stay true to the roots of both generes.
