Conceived by vocalist/guitarist Brad Iger and drummer Nicole Haeggstrom, Kamikaze was forged out of a desire to brutalize the unsuspecting public with loud, uncompromising punk rawk. After bassist Dave Kensler joined the band, Kamikaze quickly began to make a name for themselves on the local L.A. circuit while honing their heavy, aggressive sound. However, this incarnation of the band was not to last. Enter current bassist Matthew Elzie, who took up the mantle of bass in mid 2008 and carries it heroically to this day. With their lineup cemented, Kamikaze has continued to write songs and refine their sound, while regularly playing live shows around Los Angeles. After recording at Organic Audio Recorders in 2010, Kamikaze released their first EP, “Tinnitus”, in January 2011. Fusing the punk sensibilities of bands like Black Flag and The Stooges with the heavier undertones of groups like Black Sabbath and Motörhead, Kamikaze have created their own brand of sludge punk, and have become a force to be reckoned with in the process.
