KLANK Urban Warfare CD Review
Urban Warfare, the latest release from KLANK, grabs you by the throat at the beginning and doesn’t let go for all fourteen tracks. It was released for digital download on all of the major outlets, including iTunes and CD Baby June 12, 2012 and physical copies are due to be shipped July 10th.
The band is the brainchild of Daren “Klank” Diolosa, who was a former member of industrial metal juggernaut Circle Of Dust. Pat Servidio, Danny Owsley, Eric Wilkins and Charlie Parker completes the lineup.
The latest offering starts with “A Call To Arms” and ends with a bit of a surprise in the form of guest vocals from none other than Dug Pinnick of King’s X fame on the standout track “Something About You”.
Daren “Klank” Dilosa states, “Each song can literally mean something different to a different person, depending on the person and what they perceive and get out of it”. Such is the case with Urban Warfare, it could be the war within yourself, as evidenced with “Save Me”, or “Stomp You Out” which displays the war with someone else.
Urban Warfare was recorded, engineered and produced by band member Pat Servidio at The Kompound and mastered by industry heavyweight Maor Applebaum. The album meshes the best of metal, dance grooves and synth, samples and loops to make a unique sound of their own.
KLANK conducted an art submission contest which allowed their fans to enter their work to be used as the official art for an upcoming single as well. In addition, they welcome fan feedback and make sure to interact with them aggressively.
Urban Warfare does not disappoint and is a must-have in your music collection. KLANK would love to have as many soldiers join their revolution and with Urban Warfare there are likely to be throngs of many new people jumping on the ship.
