Bodybag Fit For a King / Bio

Forming in early 2009 in a garage in Pekin Illinois, Bodybag Fit For a king consist of screaming vocals from Daniel Wrhel, guitar/back up screaming vocals from Paul Elliott, bass from Shane Svendsen, and drums from Skylar Lewis. Faced with struggles from day 1 with the cops shutting down practice, a new practice spot had to be found. Thanks to a friend of the bands dad Scott stepping up and lending his basement the band was able to continue. Months later the band eventually moved to its current practice spot. Since has been sticking to what they started, with writing heavy originals for all to beat the shit out each other to. Bodybag Fit For a King has brought back a heavy style music to the area that can be compared to acts like: Lamb of God, Mudvayne, Chimaira, Meshuggah, and many other heavy metal bands. Also bringing a super high energy, crazy bloody show that you have to see for yourself. After playing their first show in June 2010, thanks to their friends Karen and Metal Ryan. Bodybag hit the ground running and has since shared the stage with such National recording and touring acts such as: Rikets, Mushroomhead, Flaw, Texas Hippie Coalition, and many other supporting acts. Bodybag is always bringing new elements to their music and live shows they are continuing to turn many heads. Look for them or request them in a town near you.
