Death & Romance / Bio

Do you know what the problem is with the local scene (besides the fact there really isn't one anymore)? Fuck it, do you know what the problem is with Rock N' Roll in general? There are no more rockstars, no more anthems, no more stage shows and no more bands that want to take over the world.
That is where Death & Romance come in. They are a band hooked on world domination and won't settle for anything less. A band that is very loud, rude and aggressive. Equal parts Rock N' Roll and Metal with sleazy soaring vocals to top it all off. Thus being dubbed, Sleazecore.
The bands influences include Jager, Night Train, Sixx: A.M., Guns N' Roses, Strip Clubs, Avenged Sevenfold, Motley Crue, Kiss, Beer, Bullet For My Valentine, Alice Cooper, Shinedown, L.A. Guns, Horror Movies, Skid Row, Misfits and creating chaos!
The band consists of vocalist Colter Grimm. The singer/entertainer to end all others. His range and power is unparalled. He is the voice of a new generation. Christ LaViene on lead guitar. Whether he is shredding, rippin' a nasty lead or picking something beautiful, Christ knows whats best for the song and delivers it at high energy. Kodie Krypt and JJ Priest round out the band. Kodie's ratty raw punk rock bass lines and JJ's fast powerful yet groove oriented drums make for a power house rhthym section like no other.
Even though these guys are just starting out they have already created quite a buzz. They are currently perfecting their particular brand of Sleazecore live, including shows with national acts Hed PE, Kittie, and SOiL. So catch them live on the small stage now before you can't anymore.
Needless to say Rock N' Roll needs saviours. Are Death & Romance the band to bring it all back? Only time will tell...... but we think so.
