Not only is John a professional producer, engineer and musician, but he's a bad ass drummer who plays in an intense metal band called Bat On Fire. The band has been compared to a few of my favorites including Mastodon, Pantera, Tool and The Mars Volta.
Bat On Fire has been playing since 2006 and consists of John Kay on drums, Karlos Kowaleski on vocals, Joe Allen on guitar, John Able on bass and Michael Hopper on guitar. They have 2 full length albums out and a new album planned for release in 2012/2013 titled "Jack The Ripper". They are known for putting on great live shows much like P.T.'s Revenge does.
In the meantime, check out their first song from 'Jack The Ripper' here:
Thanks to Black Iris Booking, you can check them out live this week and see how amazing they are for yourself. They are playing Thursday, August 16 at the Magic Stick with My Ticket Home, Eyes Set to Kill, Awaken the Empire and The Worst Of. Doors are at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. We definitely recommend checking out Bat on Fire!
