|The Heavier Side of RockWritten By: Helena Danyluk for Hamilton Indie Music
Four distinct and very unique personalities come together to form Hamilton’s newest Premier Rock n Roll band. With song lyrics torn from their own very real emotions and life situations, this collaboration screams to the audience a love affair of rock music. Trying not to reinvent the wheel, but just to keep it rolling, in their own unique style, Blacken’d Red brings a heavy 70’s rock flare to the stage.
Nothing showcased this more than the live premier of their latest song, “Rock n Roll Demolition” at Molson Canadian Studio/Hamilton Place on Friday March 23, 2012. The swagger of lead vocalist, Iggy Pasalic, showcases in the song with a heart pounding beat from drummer Jack Rogers and sexy guitar riffs from both lead guitarist Brian Pincombe and bassist Dave Green.
These proud Hamilton boys have tailgated at Copp’s Coliseum for Greenday, Godsmack and the 2011 All-Fantasy Game: LGL. They have shared the stage with John Corabi, Russ Dwarf of the Killer Dwarfs and Blue Coupe. Opening for these bands has brought them to a new level of confidence, which shows immensely onstage. While Iggy, Jack, Brian and Dave prove their individual talent, simultaneously they create a sound that can only be described as well meshed, allowing them to truly own the stage.
Blacken’d Red heads back to Grant Ave. Studio in Hamilton, ON to work with world renowned producer Bob Doidge. Doidge has worked with musical legends such as Gordon Lightfoot, U2, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan and many more remarkable talents. Full of excitement and anticipation to finish their cd with such a legend, Blacken’d Red with six songs already recorded, hope to finish up the 10 song self- titled cd “Blacken’d Red” for a fall release.
Blacken’d Red was nominated for loud/metal band of the year at Hamilton’s Music awards for their song/video “Drive” in 2011. This loud rock n roll band is gearing up for a few more videos for songs; “Wanted Man” and “Dimestore.”
