Kadaver Dolls / Bio

Kadaver Dolls is a metal band located primarily in Venice FL, also traveling all over southwest Florida to different venues to spread the music. They formed in late 2009 when experienced guitarist Joe Westall (lead guitar) was working with bassist Jason Smith. When Westall & Smith realized their love for metal music and common grounds of playing music and wanting to create a band, the two started meeting on a regular basis. For about a year they jammed, also searching for the right members to complete the band. Westall & Smith committed themselves to searching for the right people. This was a much harder tasked than what they expected. A break finally came when Westall made contact with his old friend, Mark Carlson. Carlson immediately felt the connection and saw the devotion that this new band had. He joined the ranks behind the drums. After a few weeks of practice, Carlson brought in his friend, Andrew Meadows, to pick up the microphone. Kadaver Dolls, having such a good connection, settled on a four-piece band set up. Quickly, the group began writing music and decided to take it to the studio. In September of 2010, they entered a studio belonging to fellow musician Jason Schmidt of D.O.C. Ruckus and Team Cybergeist. Meeting up at Red Line Studios, Kadaver Dolls recorded a low budget self-titled demo. In October of 2010 Kadaver Dolls let loose and showed the people what they were about. Sharing the stage with (hed) P.E., Wayne Static of Static X, Mushroomhead, Periphery, Born of Osiris, and more great local bands over the next few years, Kadaver Dolls built up their strong reputation. The band had since acquired their sound and wrote a slipstream of energy fueled songs. Feeling that they wanted to fill out their sound, they decided to bring in a second guitarist. In the summer of 2013, after a few failed attempts at finding a second guitarist, Jason Schwartzwalder filled the space that was empty. They have since been proving that they are a force to reckon with and accumulate fans and friends wherever they go. In October of 2013, Kadaver Dolls were offered a small record contract with Spread The Metal Records out of Canada and will be hitting the studio very soon for their first full length album.
