GGR got the audience ready for Anna Yost’s band Krell which was the final band of the night showing off Yost’s ability to perform industrial metal which brought in a new crowd with some GGR fans remaining despite the late weeknight hour. Krell featured Gym Krell, lead vocals, guitar; Dirt, bass; Anna Yost, drums; and Adam, guitar giving a great performance that thrilled the heavy metal fans with both great instrumental and a lead singer that could enchant the crowd. Krell has a new CD out through Dinky music and like all the bands featured quite an impressive Myspace to learn more about them and their music. The night ended on a note of friendship with four bands bonding together and putting together a show they can all be proud of.

Truly one of the more fresh and gripping metal acts I've ever witnessed on the Los Angeles scene... and I've been seeing shows here for 23 years .I'd say they bring to mind the likes of early Guns N Roses, L.A. Guns, Coal Chamber or even Motley Crue. Yes, they are this good. Whipping thru each song next like a whirlwind, Krell stepped up the metal ante with chilling offerings such as Crucified and Control'd, songs that were definite crushing crowd pleasers. I myself was headbanging like it was the 80's all over again. Which speaks to the importance of this group at this point in the ongoing saga of true metal music. I fully believe I was as enthralled by their dynamic chemistry and commitment to throwing their hat into the ring. What most metal bands of today do is simply go with the more extreme black or death metal interest, sheep being herded around -- when what matters is the song itself at the end of the day. Period. - Rocket

Bio

KRELL is an amalgamation of sound and vision, showcasing bonecrushing metal riffing, acid bass philanderings, with corrosive melodies and phatty hooks . These Diezal Driven Dirge Masters draw musical influence from many of our darkest forefathers from Black Sabbath,NIN, and Joy Division ;to Anton Levey ,Sammy Davis JR and Pinhead Krell has molded a unique soundscape somewhere between The Cure, The Archies and Slayer..... Emerging from the ashes of Trenchmouth UK (Jym Krell) and Vulvaboy(AdamKravitz) in the late 90's,in Richmond, Virginia; Jym Krell began programming music for exotic dancers while working as a DJ. Instead of playing cheesy metal classics, Jym composed heavy techno covers and originals to accompany dance routines; thus the first single Ready For Love (a heavy techno cover of the Bad Co. classic) was contrived. Krell, as a musical entity, soon evolved into it's very own Experience, branding it's own southern style of SuperSonicCyberSludge with
A tasty dose of technical trickery; that's metamorphisized into its current sonic spectacle.

Krell quickly out grew their small town surroundings with the success
of their first independent release and tour of "The Dope Album". After a warm LA reception at the end of their first US tour, Krell decided to re-locate to Hollywood where they acquired a new rhythm section including bassist, Dirt (Society 1) and drummer Anna Yost (Resent, Cauterized). With the overlapping busy schedules of both Krell and Society1, bassist Alley Useless( FullMetalRacket, Level) stepped in, completing Krells current live lineup.
Krell has shared the stage with the likes of some of the musics heaviest and loudest artist such as : Lamb of God, Gwar, Godhead, KMFDM and Pigface to
name a few.
