工业重金属，但是死亡的吉他。迅猛激烈，加上工业电子采样。这个乐队很强。节奏很强 工业站主导 死亡一样的迅猛吉他 还有电子氛围什么的衬托 。很不错真的我很喜欢他们 ，他们以前和Circle of dust有关系和Celldweller一样都是Circle of dust里的精英建的乐队。Klank以前是Circle Of Dust里的吉他手，以节奏重出名，他的外号“Klank”就是源自他的重型吉他。老外叫他们Electro Groove Metal，不太明白。还有下面的那个老外评论说：“ sound like typical Industrial/death metal” 有点像工业死亡金属....的确 太强了.(Xtr3mz)
"Electro Groove Metal" may very well be the best way to describe the four piece wrecking machine from Long Island, New York known as Klank.
Klank released their debut album "Still Suffering" on the Seattle based Tooth & Nail Records (MxPx, O.C. Supertones, Living Sacrifice….) in 1997, which gave the band an immense amount of attention and notoriety. After spending 18 weeks on the CMJ Top 40 charts and having their single "Downside" added to over 170 radio stations nationwide, Klank formed a strong fan base with their constant during and intense live shows. Klank has now begun to make its mark once again with their second album, "Numb", released through Progressive Arts Music.
Klank has once again broken musical boundaries with a sound that is best described as Dancy aggressive Dark Electronically Influenced Groove. Melody is prevalent within deep layers of guitars, keyboards, samples, live and programmed drums. Deep heartfelt, introspective lyrics that express a longing for inner peace, emotional mood swings, bitterness, despair and even elements of hope and happiness are wrapped up in the musical landscape.
Writing music is a form of therapy that helps to release bottled up frustrations and emotions that otherwise have no outlet. "We write music that we feel comes from deep down inside and a lot of people can relate to them because they are all based on real life situations and emotions. We all deal with issues in our lifetime and here is our chance to vent those issues", explains Diolosa.
Klank consists of Darren "Klank" Diolosa (ex - Circle Of Dust & Argyle Park) on vocals, guitars & keys, Pat Servidio on guitar, keys, & programming, Danny Owsley on guitars & backing vocals and John "JMF" Zaletel (ex - Great Kat) on drums & percussion.
"Numb" was recorded, engineered, produced, mixed & mastered by the band at their own studio, 54, recording facility. The album shows much maturation from that of their debut, which includes the single "Blind" which again made it into the top 40 on the CMJ charts. A video was also filmed for "Blind" which has become a regular fixture on the Much Music channel.
I first found out about Klank when I started trying to get all the related projects to Klay Scott(Circle of Dust, Celldweller, etc...) as he used to be Circle's guitarist. Little was I prepared for the incredible music he made on his own. Still Suffering showed that Darren had the ability to come out of Klay's massive shadow and make his own powerful music. Although on the surface, it may sound like typical industrial/death metal, it is far different than the product that most of today's artists put out. Klank deals with issues such as abuse by others, neglect, loneliness, and a deep desire for peace inside. He is striving to really find God, and his lyrics relect it in a deep and meaningful way. This cd is an emotional Journey. Klank addresses issues that every Christian deals with, but nobody wishes to face in today's shallow music industry. For this reason, his cd is worth buying even if you are not a fan of industrial music. With production credits going to Klay Scott(and with a bit of help from AP2 cohort Buka as well), the cd is excellent.(Xtr3mz)
