Swooping down on the earth like a mystical bird of flame, (kāj) provides a rebirth of rock from the ashes of it's predecessors. Driven by a strong vocal presence and melodic guitar riffs and brought together with intense bass undertones and driving rhythmic patterns producing a sound that you aren't likely to forget.
(kāj) was a four member high-energy, modern rock band hailing from the Alle-Kiski Valley of Western Pennsylvania.
Always a band to effortlessly - and sometimes controversially - mash up rock, metal, glam, and punk, Chip DiMonick has been on fire supporting their bombastic fifth album, Uncaged.
Chip DiMonick's music has gotten extensive FM airplay in its home state of Pennsylvania and has been loved and reviewed around the world, including by Europe's Power Play magazine, which called it "cocksure and nasty, but appealing."
Chip DiMonick is a promoter's favorite unsigned act to pair with national acts. The band has opened for a wide variety of both currently hot bands (In This Moment, Texas Hippie Coalition, Huntress, Adelita’s Way, Art of Dying, Wednesday 13) and legendary hard rock forefathers (Quiet Riot, Winger, Lynch Mob, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Pretty Boy Floyd, Britny Fox, Tom Kiefer of Cinderella, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row).
Paying homage to their musical roots, Homicide Black conjures images of darkness, despair and salvation (not always in that order), telling epic tales with some songs while delivering a straightforward onslaught of crushing metal with others. The music is truly brought to life during the band’s blistering live performances that include tributes to the metal gods designed to engage the audience and introduce metal’s rich history to new fans as well as reacquainting it with those who have waited far too long for their music to return to the epic stature it once had.
Each member is a multi-instrumentalist, allowing for a truly organic writing process which is evident in the material on the band’s self-titled debut. From the dark imagery that sets the stage for “Spirits of the Dead,” “Sinner or Saint” and “Church on the Hill” to the tragedies that unfold in “Well of Souls,” Homicide Black brings to life a new dawn of metal and the drive to bring it to the metal-starved masses.
