Biography

Playing delicious harmonies and hooks, BraVurA hits the stage with flawless precision. Hailing from Kitchener, Ontario, the band has one thing on its mind: “kicking your ***”! BraVurA features the distinctive seven string sound of Jonah Kay, the crushing/melodic vocals of Kaleb "DuckMan" Duck, the dexterous playing of Travis MacKinnon and the groovy backbone of Darren Venhuizen and Justin Ferrari. The 5 members have come together to form the perfect mix of progressive metal, rock and technical plurality.

"...this demo reads like an early Judas Priest release, mixed with a new music feel of what the market is offering up these days. It’s more than worth a listen."
- Brent Doerner (Helix)

Enveloping musicality and technical playing; the riffs are complex, as are the songs. Dedication to the art of music is clear in BraVurA. They’ve pushed themselves to create their own metal beast while keeping close to their roots. With great melodies and harmonies, growling and shredding guitar solos, they have demonstrated what it is to be musicians and to work together towards something great.

Releasing their self-titled debut EP on Sept 5th, 2008, the band have since played many shows and are working very hard to finish their first full length album as we speak. They can be heard on Y108 Rocks! or College and University radio stations.

Bravura has just joined forces with original line up of HELIX, Canadian ROCK ICONS. Duckman is now the new young gun guitar player touring with the band.
Lets just say watch out for the BraVurA train to roll through your town.

Lyrics

Hangman’s Snare

Written By: Kaleb Duck

The verdict is finally in
Judgements been made and you have sinned
Once respected now a criminal
Attending your own funeral
Pray for you rotten soul
Cause it’s gonna get real cold

He’s a traitor that’s what they say
Sentenced to death by hanging today x2

Chorus:
Hangman’s snare, it’s ringing for you
Hangman’s snare
Hangman’s snare, it’s ringing for you
Hangman’s snare
It’s ringing for you baby x4

Stepping into the trapped door
The executioner wanting more
Life generates many things
But for you the hangman’s snare rings
Take your last breath this is it
The graveyard awaits your visit

He’s a traitor that’s what they say
Sentenced to death by hanging today x2

Chorus:
Hangman’s snare, it’s ringing for you
Hangman’s snare
Hangman’s snare, it’s ringing for you
Hangman’s snare
It’s ringing for you baby x4

Twice The Speed Of Time

Written By: Kaleb Duck/Justin Ferrari

The places we go to escape
Feeling the pain of mistake
I become so numb

Realizing truth, only after time
Sedated, frustrated, lost within our minds
Release your soul through elightened eyes
Live for yourself for we all must die

CHORUS
Misery in me, crawling on the floor
Chaos spinning inside my mind, twice the speed of time
Eternity, words once spoken, but now seem broken
Determined to fix the past, needing us to last

The places we go to escape
Feeling the pain of mistake
I become so numb

Realizing truth, only after time
Sedated, frustrated, lost within our minds
Release your soul through elightened eyes
Live for yourself for we all must die

The seed of existence their slipping away
Chocking the world with every blind word we say
The true force of this life will never be seen
Connect the collective thats the key

Don't look back now
Clear this head, put these thoughts to bed
Time will overcome all pain within
Let your life begin

CHORUS
Misery in me, crawling on the floor
Chaos spinning inside my mind, twice the speed of time
Eternity, words once spoken, but now seem broken
Determined to fix the past, needing us to last

We Are Not All Broken

Written By: Kaleb Duck

We Are Not All Broken

Lost uneasy souls
Experiencing highs and lows
Far from helping now
Falling off the track
Fucked up thats a fact
Loosing all mental contact.

CHORUS

We are not all broken
We are not the same
We are not all broken
You're the one insane.

Medicated minds
Pills all the time
We all know your kind
Failing to comprehend
Close to the end
Loosing my dear friend.

CHORUS

We are not all broken
We are not the same
We are not all broken
You're the one insane.


Facing the truth is no childs play
But your risking your life everyday ....your life.

Crying out for help we all see your pain

living amongst the beast that cant be tamed. x2

Can't be tamed

Treatment is what they all seem to say

if not this might be your last conscious day. x2

CHORUS

We are not all broken
We are not the same
We are not all broken
You're the one insane.
