14 Febbraio @ 21:30 - 23:30| €5
Black Gremlin is an Italian rock band, officially formed in 2013.
It all started when 4 friends – already playing in other bands such as “Shinin’ Shade” “Caronte” and “Calendula” – felt the need go back to basics and play some raw rock ‘n roll. They started jamming together and soon ideas became some of their first concrete tracks.
With the help their friend and producer Carlo Izzo the band starts recording their debut Ep called “Rock N Raw”.
7 tracks came to life at the “Elfo Studio” in Piacenza (Italy) at the end of 2013. The tracks in “Rock and Raw” were recorded live in just one day, using an 8 track reel to reel tape recorder. The sound of the band is captured live in all its raw power and the 7 tracks unravel in the glory of the wildest riffs and the angriest solos.
“Rock And Raw” soon gets noticed for its rough edges and track n*2 “Entropy Death Squad” becomes the official soundtrack of the very popular independent role playing game “Urban Heroes”. The record was released in 2014 on cd and tape cassette on Retrovox Records.
After the release the band spends a year touring all over Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain and France introducing their first Ep on hundreds of stages until the exit of original member Henry Bones from the band for personal reasons.
Narco Maynard ( ex Shinin’ Shade and present Strato’s bass player) joins the guys in early 2016 and together they start writing new material, which soons turns into 12 new tracks.
The attitude of the new album is still ignorant and in-your-face but the band explores more retro sounds (MC5, Pink Fairies, Thin Lizzy) mixed with early 80s Thrash Metal and Hardcore Punk.
At the beginning of 2017 the band is ready to record these new tracks at “The Big Pine Creek Studios”, after a few weeks “The Fun Is Over” is finished and is released in October on vinyl and cd. Black Gremlin starts touring again soon after the release and joins Gorilla Pulp in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The band also played at the last edition of Dunajam in Sardegna.
“Lone Wolf” (track n*7) gets picked by “Classic Rock” UK magazine to feature in the “They’re Coming” official compilation.
