Throughout the decades, Los Angeles California has been at the epicenter of the American Heavy Metal Scene, while the star-lined street of Hollywood have stood as a beacon to people all over the world that this is where the big-fish in small-ponds come to swim in the biggest pond of them all. Its amidst this backdrop that the individual members of Enrot met and came together as Hollywoods premier undiscovered metal act.
Enrot are four friends who come from all over America. Russell from Orange County, Ruben from Los Angeles, Justin from Chicago, and Quentin From Ohio; they met in LA, and found they had a common passion for music, and a common goal to change the status quo.
Enrot takes a no-bullshit approach to their music, which focuses on artistic expression, unbridled stage energy, and an intimate connection with their audience.
Enrot wants to break down genre barriers and misconceptions about metal musicians, and seeks to create inspiring yet brutal music that will speak to a wide audience of Heavy Metal fans, and beyond.
A diverse range of artists influences Enrots members; Russell Grell grew up on a solid diet of Thrash and Death Metal, while loving innovative acts like Faith No More and Tool. Quentin Neace brings a brutal-yet-decipherable vocal style that shows influences of Phil Anselmo (Pantera), Cory Taylor (Slipknot), and Layne Staley (Alice In Chains).
Bass player Ruben Talamantes brings a love of Hip-Hop, while infusing melody-laden grooves influnced by John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), with the speed and thunder of Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse). Drummer Justin Lack brings a strong knowledge of music theory with an expert-level of musicianship. An author, and music teacher who studied at Berklee, Justin mixes the skill and stage presence of Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), with the technical groove of Joey Jordison (Slipknot). Together, Enrot meld these influences into a unique style of their own.
Enrot has been a fixture in the Los Angeles metal scene for two years, and in that short time has had the opportunity to be a supporting band for national metal acts such as Cattle Decapitation. Kittie, Evile, Gama Bomb, Bonded By Blood, Exmortus, Joey Belladona (of Anthrax), All Hail the Yeti, and Metal Sanaz.
Enrot is currently supporting their self-titled debut song collection in the southern California area, and looking for opportunities to bring their brand of entertainment to heavy music lovers everywhere -
