Still working on that hot first release.



Kalaka is an industrial metal band comprised of five passionate musicians from Queens, New York. Each member has been deeply impacted by the music they love, with a large variety of influences from Pantera and Metallica to Lamb of God and Marilyn Manson. Kalaka was formed in late 2008, when singer/songwriter Safi Aiken teamed up with guitarist Eion “Bubba” Cochrane, and started jamming to some of Safi's previously written songs. Soon after composing a few more songs, they began auditioning other like-minded musicians with hopes of starting what is now Kalaka. The band has gone through a couple of lineup changes since their debut in late 2009, leaving the original members Safi and Eion to keep pushing the band forward. Through mutual friends, bassist Andrew DeNardo heard about our quest for musicians and came to audition, learning two full songs in just under two hours. Early 2010 brought the additions of drummer Markie Fonseca and keyboardist Camilo "Charlie" Herrera to the lineup, bringing Kalaka back to full force again. But the journey has just begun. Putting on a show like no other, with their infectious riffs, relentless lyrics, unforgettable performances, and shocking stage antics, Kalaka is quickly making a name for themselves in their local music scene. Expect nothing less than extraordinary from Kalaka, on their quest for dominating the world of music, one stage at a time.
