KLOGR (pronounced Kay - log - are) is an Italian alternative rock/metal project-band formed in 2011.
The band's name is a reference to a renowned psychophysical law (S = K log R) which was developed in the 19th century by Weber and Fechner; the law is related to the changes in human perception according to different types of stimuli. Behind the powerful sound and concept of KLOGR there's Rusty, frontman and mastermind of the project 11-11-11 has been chosen as debut date for KLOGR first album "Till You Decay".
The response to the album is prompt and enthusiastic, both in terms of reviews and public. The album is promoted internationally through an American Tour in the West Coast (10 dates in January 2012) and many live shows in Italy and in France. From this album are released two videos: "Bleeding" and "Silk And Thorns".
In September 2012, KLOGR starts collaborating with Italian alt-rock band Timecut. From this new artistic partnership is released the EP "Till You Turn" (out on November 2012) which includes a featuring with Maki from Lacuna Coil and two tracks mixed by Logan Mader (Machine Head/Soulfly).
The release of "Till You Turn" is followed by a European Tour with shows in Belgium, Holland, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Lettonia, Lithuania, Finland and a final show at prestigious Sweden Rock Festival on June, 7 2013.
In between tour dates, KLOGR is actively supporting the international organization Sea Shepherd in defense and protection of the marine wild-life. Like other artists involved in the fund raising (Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gojira to name a few) KLOGR shoot a music video "Guinea Pigs". The video is released in May 2013 and gets shared worldwide to increase public awareness about the cause.
Two more videos are released from the EP: "King of Unknown" (January 2013) and "Vultures Feast" (December 2013).
In summer 2013 KLOGR starts the production of their second full length album: "Black Snow".
To support the promotion of the upcoming album, the band engages a 23-dates European Tour with American alt-metal band Prong.
'Black Snow' is the second full lenght album of alternative/rock metal band KLOGR.
A massive anathema against the destructive acts operated by human kind, 'Black Snow' is delivered musically with smacking and massive tunes supported by a flawless production. "Man has been contaminating everything for years and this is certainly not a positive thing." - explains Rusty, referring to 'Black Snow' - "What was meant to be evolution is revealing itself to be an environmental and intellectual pollution heading to self destruction".
The lyrics of the 12 tracks on 'Black Snow' are about a broken world, where a prompt reaction is mandatory and there's no room for hesitation, faking or excuses. 'Black Snow' is a powerful work of raw rage, with room for beautiful melodies and melancholic ballads such as 'Heart Breathing' and 'Ambergris (Whale Song)'.
Opening track 'Zero Tolerance' was written in support of the conservation of sea wildlife organization Sea Shepherd and its title is the name of one of their mission.
Recorded between Zeta Factory and Green River studios, the album was produced by Rusty and Tancredi Barbuscia. The result is something which cannot be labeled as pertaining to just one music genre and perhaps this is what makes this album so captivating. It flows from towering and aggressive parts to others dominated by hypnotic atmospheres and the charismatic work of the musicians, in a sonic continuum linking all tracks within the solid frame of the album. 'Black Snow' is scheduled to be released worldwide in March 2014 and will be promoted live with a 23 dates European Tour with American alternative metal band Prong.
