Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter, Ex-The Browning) has launched his new label, Zombie Shark Records, with the first signings being Montreal, Canada based nu-metal quartet, KEYCHAIN and Australian industrial, shock rock band, Darkc3ll.
Keychain recorded their debut EP, Breaking Out, with renowned producer, mixer, and engineer Glen Robinson (AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Gwar, Voivod, Annihilator, and Slaves on Dope). The recording was mastered by legend, Howie Weinberg, whose over 30 year career includes bands like Limp Bizkit, Sevendust, Deftones, Chevelle, and Disturbed. Breaking Out will be available, worldwide, September 1.
Commented Robertson, “The instant I saw the music video for “Prime Time” I knew I had to work with Keychain. It slams! I just knew this band was going somewhere. They have soul and passion and an undeniable groove. All four members quit their jobs to do a North American Tour. I can respect that! That’s how you know these guys are beyond dedicated.”
“Let us introduce you to Keychain, quite possibly the modern day answer to Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot.” – Damnation Magazine
“Through “Prime Time” the band effortlessly stitches together various genres to create a sound that is quick to capture and demand the listener’s attention. The song seems to resonate an upbeat and energy packed feel that will have the listener head banging along in no time!” – Livingthevanlife
“They don’t seem to care what anyone thinks about nu-metal and just want to become the next Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park. As far as I’m concerned, they can. They certainly know how to make a contagious piece of music in great nu-metal tradition.” – Merchants of Air
Also joining the Zombie Shark Records family is industrial, shock rock band, Darkc3ll, from Australia. The band recently self-produced their fourth studio album in Brisbane, Queensland at RTD Studios; headed up by Darkc3ll guitarist, Matt Shorter. The album, entitled Haunted Reality, is set to be released on Halloween 2016 and boasts an impressive display of dark, horror art provided by Em Undead from Morbid Carousel Designs.
The band has also released their creepy, new Official Music Video for the song, “Preacher”, via Bloody Disgusting August 26 and here:
Robertson remarks, “I toured with Darkc3ll recently and they really impressed me! Watching them kill it every night, I left that tour with a lot of respect for those guys. Great look. Great live band! Love the vibe these guys put out!”
Darkc3ll is praised for their deeply industrial sound and is widely known for their highly theatrical appearance and stage show. The band has toured and performed with Wednesday 13, Combichrist, Otep, and recently toured the United States on the Civil Unrest Tour with Ill Nino, Straight Line Stitch, Davey Suicide, Motograter, and more. The band plans to tour Australia in support of their latest release.
