Splicing the mosh pit and the dance floor, the audio wrecking machine from New York known as KLANK released their debut album Still Suffering on the Seattle based Tooth & Nail Records (MxPx, Living Sacrifice, etc.) in 1995. Breaking musical boundaries with a sound described as ‘dancy, aggressive, dark, electronically-influenced groove’, KLANK spent 18 weeks on the CMJ Top 40 charts and their monster single Downside which was added to over 170 radio stations nationwide. KLANK gained an immense amount of attention and notoriety while forming a strong, loyal fan base with their constant touring and growing reputation for intense live shows.
KLANK then made their mark once again with their sophmore release, Numb, which was recorded, engineered, produced, mixed & mastered by the band at their own recording facility & originally offered as a fan club/live show release. Numb was later released through their own label SmokeDogg Productions with distribution through Progressive Arts Music. Numb showcased KLANK keeping true to their trademark sound, while also showing much maturity from that of their debut. The crushing single, Blind made it into the top 40 on the CMJ charts, and the video for Blind became a regular fixture on the Much Music channel. Following Numb, KLANK then appeared on a metal music compilation as well as contributed their cover of I’ll Wait to Running with the Devil - A Tribute to Van Halen.
KLANK consists of Daren “Klank” Diolosa (ex - Circle Of Dust) on vocals, guitars & keys, Pat Servedio on guitar, keys, & programming, Danny Owsley on guitars & backing vocals and Eric Wilkins on drums & percussion. “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 because it’s based on real life situations and emotions from everyday life — from mood swings, bitterness, the longing for inner peace to elements of hope, happiness & despair. We all have to deal with these in our lives and this is our way to vent those issues”, explains Diolosa.
On June 27, 2007, the In Memory Of… EP was unleashed at the Cornerstone Festival, Illinois in which KLANK peformed their first show in over 6 years. In true KLANK fashion, In Memory Of… features the trademark KLANK sound with layers of guitars, keyboards, samples, thumping bass, live and programmed drums fused with melodic, heartfelt, introspective lyrics.
KLANK basically spent the following 2 years focusing on the writing and recording of newer material as well as breaking down, totally revamping and re-recording some of the songs that had originally appeared on the Numb release. On April 20, 2010 KLANK unleashed NUMB…Reborn, featuring 15 tracks of the classic KLANK sound and guest appearances by Jim Chaffin (The Crucified, The Blamed, Fasedown), Larry Farkas (Vengeance Rising, Die Happy, Once Dead) and Mike Phillips (Deliverance, Fasedown).
All the band’s hard work and effort has paid off — being as fans have been raving about NUMB…Reborn which is being referred to as a ‘straight up, guitar driven, aggressively heavy masterpiece’. Songs like Don’t Count Me Out, Blind, D.F.L. and The Rules tip the scales of heaviness, while songs like Broken, God? and So Very Real allow the band’s melodic side shine through in full form.
