The Hell's Kitchen Project is brazilian band whom likes to show through your music a completely different Brazilian colours. We embranced our cathartic sound, working only with bass, drums and vocals, mixing different genres like stoner rock, metal, punk, a little bit electro, with no guitars.

Biography

Drums, bass and vocals - this is just what THKP needs! The power and attitude of this three guys make their debut album "A Hell of a Day", - recorded by Chico Neves, a great brazilian music producer & mixed/mastered by Ben Findlay, UK - a fantastic combo of genuine simplicity and pure energy.

THKP is a brazilian band formed in 2006, that consists of lead vocalist João Luís (a.k.a Jon), bassist Fernando (a.k.a Malk),and drummer Leonardo (a.k.a Budha). Back then,this guys wanted to mix the old rock´n´roll with a bunch of new elements,and a guitar player was definitely not included! This, is specifically what makes THKP such a bold and unique band - the technique that brings the best of metal, punk, electro,and rock music. There is an incredible bond between the instruments and vocals.

"A Hell of a Day" tells a story of an ordinary person: from the moment he wakes up and go to work,´till the happy hour and stripper night clubs.The first videoclip from their debut album is "Balboa" - this is when the lead character of the entire album is already frustrated and hurt and yet get his pieces back together and decide to fight for his life in a sort of "Musical Fight Club": he finds a different group of men that seeks that club to take out their anger and frustration off of their hearts so they can finally moving on with their lifes. Throughout the entire song, a perfect match is detected: vibrating beats and a brilhant vocal melody. This, and much more you can find in the album "A hell of a day": notes beautifully executed and perfect arrangements - a hell of a experience!

Our influences are: Muse, Foo Fighters, Death From Above, Morphine, Daft Punk, Queens of Stone Age, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Vitriol, Deftones, Incubus.

Threat Detected

Written By: Jon Bazko

Threat Detected

Join this kind of source
unkind, look like pissing on your society
rows and rows, done with a unique shot
blowing all the culture and gettin’ blessed

a mob will follow
nuclear blows
surplus requirements to float
your moan disease fit into a corrosive
political sin

Chorus

get ready, change the subject, you were diagnosed as a threat,
detected child graves, late in coma. Hey!
do you balance your orgy supply tents?

bring us your reign

weakness distortions portrayed like an aggressive dysfunction
to each finger of the world
shall we pass from poverty to a syndrome of asymmetric
devastation, are you avoiding to feel how we could drink sulfuric acid?

sulfuric acid (6x)

Corruption laces, outrageously aced, heat stamped in a blooming pressure

Chorus

get ready, change the subject, you were diagnosed as a threat,
detected child graves, late in coma. Hey!
do you balance your orgy supply tents?

One Day as a Lion

Written By: Jon Bazko

One day as a lion

2 am, so, I bet! guess who’s on the chair?!
about excess of this game, and I tell you, it could break your jaw, but it’s kind of plastic
tell me now, I’m counting, how many "pulled out "?!
it’s tick-ing tock-ing me...

oh dear, bring some coffee and cigarettes

did I make myself clear??

what about helping me a little?

Every day’s the same, every day...the same, every day...the same

I have been waiting...I’m coming to THE GATE, it´s 7am! It´s a break,
Not me?

Morning, got a headache. In chocking cases, fawning maybe started at this dawn...

C’mon, check!
Tell me all the things they’ll do...
It’s tick-ing tock-ing me, it’s tick-ing tock-ing...me....who wants to shut down the clock?

Rip all the curtains and tell the tainted truth....Clear?!

Is it gonna help?
Counting yourself out!
You are gonna be hold!
YOU! Soldier! Stay at your post!

Yeah! There’s no time to breakdown
or even time to pull out
Soldier....your body is my armor,

Did I make myself CLEAR?!

Down! U must be quiet, in front of you
there is a lot of fools, I lot of pools...
ready to kill and drown you...

Down! U must be quiet, in front of you
a lot of warmed up fools with tools
ready to kill and drown you...

Fall! Saints...!
So what's gonna happen?!
...Talk to me?! Just talk to me?!

Fall! Saints...!
So what's gonna happen?!
...Talk to me?!....Talk to me, please?!.........

.....I’ve asked help to every god for me!....

Balboa

Balboa

Spend your life getting beaten by your troubles
You are the worst coward I've ever seen
Nonetheless I keep away from all the struggles
It seems bollocks even for me

But I say that you can cross these bounds
start to face everything you wanted to be??
Impossibilities start to fade and the problems
can be overcome if you strike back

Chorus

I guess it seems easy to say
But it is not! So get it loud!
Just think about it (3x)

Hey!
Lost and stuck in a hollow
Interested to change your reality?
How low you've been in sorrow?
It seems bollocks even for me

But I say that you can cross these bounds and
start to face everything you wanted to be
Impossibilities start to fade and the problems
can be overcome if you strike back

I guess it seems easy to say
But it is not! So get it loud!???
Just think about it (3x)

Hey!

All that fear is choking you
All that fear must have an ending

Soon enough you'll escape out of the hole
Find the reason that took you there
Discoveries that broke your structure
A new beginning becomes everything to me

Everything to me

Soon enough you'll escape out of the hole
Find the reason that took you there
Discoveries that broke your structure
A new beginning becomes everything to me

Just think about it (6x)

Ibiza

Ibiza

Do I ask if you could have a crush on me, this is what it could be...
If you roughed it and hit out at my fantasy this could be unique...
Just tell what´s happening, and I promise u stars, baby,
Always say what you thinking of me, everybody can deny it,
Weird but (it’s) simple, roll the dices and tell me what you see,
You got me in your lust portion, you know what I mean?!

Chorus

Show now the way to pervert n lust for me, do it on me...
Tell me how low is your fantasy, this could be unique...
Maybe you have fancied some chances with me me
touching your hard skin, hey(!) I shake everything..
Come with me, dressed as NYPD...every step to realize your sweet sin...
Now I please you,
every single lick,
everything is new, what u thinking about when u feel me?!
Think of you, into these kisses and sins, I´m teasing you, now just ask yourself...

Chorus

Tell me, how low is your fantasy, this could be unique...
How do you try to increase your fancy on me, down on cool beats?! ?
eyes, fancy, lick, touch, kiss and get wet, pleasure, think, dresses, nails, charm, cold, hot, step, soft, legs, feet, mouth, tease, lights, walls, signs, every night: desire, dreams, and a bunch of sighs... ?
Deep, deeper, we´re coming...closer, you try to complete me me
Immerse with you to shut me up
I feel like a hostage... take advantage on me me

Chorus

How do you try to increase your fancy on me, down on cool beats?!

Eyes, fancy, lick, touch, kiss and get wet/dresses, nails, charm, cold, hot, step, soft, legs, feet, mouth, tease, lights, walls, signs, every night: desire

DC 10 is good for me,
Constantly filling my hollow..
Maybe Eden...fits for us see!
What you looking for, baby?
I've been thinking about (a) fantasy
Handcuffs and a pretty lusty baby...
How do you try to realize m......
(it´s) gonna be a Privilege for me.

Do you want some explanation for not being at your side
I was the only one that ever knew

I was the only one that ever knew

Chorus

I used to be what you think and I was the only one that used to love

Your speech has no meaning and makes me sick
makes my mind weak, and I can't remember the last time nanana YEAH!
that we all laughed together

Do you want some explanation of why I’m not at your side
I was the only one that ever knew

Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel

Wake up, wash your face
One more slavery day
Stuff your breakfast
Read the news
Take the car or Catch a bus
Time is running and you're late
For your slavery day

Dig your life, dig your heart
Dig your mind, find the meaning of your own time
Disguise your fatigue
And forget everything you've seen
Become grey day by day

Chorus

Yes I have to say
Stop those slavery days
Don't let yourself pass it by
When the world spins around and around, yeah
Seek your family, find your love while world spins around

Corruption is our Proposal

Written By: Jon Bazko

Corruption is our Proposal

How exciting! Is he invincible? I’ll see…
Aversion is a second opinion in our relationship…

Shall we gamble to stay closer to this bound?
How about this fragile glass? Yes, it could fall

It’s a lush thing, it’s a crystal glass. See it?!
And your firm is proposing a kind of partnership?

Chorus

I’m letting go…envying her so
Wait! We had a deal…
Now, It’s not sold, but it’s done

- Here´s documents: who’s missing the chance?!

...Can’t do with the rest…deal with the best…

…She is a lush thing.

Setting a hijack?! To spoil it fast…

…Both are losing...

- Give me your presets, I’m betting on…

- These are your face cards, draw ‘n clean out, don’t cheat on me
- You are blocking me, are you sure about revenge?!
- Can you sting the screenager and grab all from them?

Chorus

I’m letting go…envying her so
Wait! We had a deal…
Now, still not sold, but it’s so done…

…Stay closer to this bound…

...Can’t do with the rest…deal with the best…
To spoil it so fast…

I’m letting go… envying her so…
She’s a lush thing.
It’s pushing you on.
Who’s missing the chance?!

We’re losing, stay inside this thing!
I’m watching all about this world. It’s so near.
How could it be? Challenge the silence to break?!
Lifting my pleasure as a main supplier of this thing

Shall we gamble to stay closer to this bound?
How about this fragile glass? Yes, it could fall.
It’s a lush thing, it’s a crystal glass. See it?!

You’re lifting my pleasure as a main feeder of this thing

Final Chorus

I’m letting go…envying her so
Wait! We had a deal…
Now, It’s not sold, but it’s done…

Are we missing our chance?

Now, It’s not sold, but it’s so done…

- Let’s do it! Corruption is our proposal…

Nouvelle Vague

Written By: Jon Bazko

Nouvelle Vague

Oh well a sister with her poems, sweet, sweet it seems,
friends of mine are composing a song, and a few moments
I feel like I don’t belong

dwelling my vessel into your unpure ocean, vestal

Chorus

So can't hear me...yeah
so you can't be here
so you can't hear me...yeah..

Again, is it what you do? I cannot forget you
again you could be my queen
but you don’t let me put on the clothes of a king

like my angel her cry has been held, and she’s begging for help

Chorus

So can't hear me...yeah
so you can't be here
so you can't hear me...yeah..

These blooming threats that you care, I won’t regret even if you dare,
A mother paints a lot of colours to liberate her sorrows

The sun tried to fit the hollow in our land that moon has swallowed
glue drops change the taste of my faith, and I forever lost your embrace.

glue drops change the taste of my faith, and I forever lost your embrace.
forever lost, forever lost...your embrace

Chorus

So can't hear me...yeah
so you can't be here
so you can't hear me...yeah..

Unbalance

Written By: Leo Braca

Unbalance

Chorus

Can u tell me what the hell
Is really going on here
Can't stop screaming out loud
Why don't you show the way you feel

You're not content with what you have
Or maybe the way you behave
Tell me all about your thoughts
That you locked up in a cage

You always tell me I am wrong
In your messed up world
Just say a different word
And stop playing mind games

"Stop fighting and shut up"
That is what you used to saying
Transform my head into a stair
Just to keep yourself safe

Chorus

Can u tell me what the hell
Is really going on here
Can't stop screaming out loud
Why don't you show the way you feel

You're not content with what you have
Or maybe the way you behave
Tell me all about your thoughts
That you locked up in a cage

I'm trying to calm down
And not to repeat my mistakes
You could help me how to find
A different way to solve this

- I'm getting so tired now...

- and you're deteriorating, aren't you?

- I know I'm telling the truth

- Can't you see, my sweety?


Turn off the television now
And I'm not distorting anything
I know that you're trying to Persuade me

Climax:

You still spit reckless words
Without thinking if it hurts me
It's been a long time since I
Stopped playing your dirty game

Hate and love me
In the same way
But I've had enough
Until this day

Already Awake
even so slow
But now I'm free
And ready to go

Loft

Written By: Jon Bazko

Loft

Come on and let yourself free into my mouth
Let’s show your charm onto this walls
come on, do not make me your last resort
it’s complicated when you thrill me, oh no,
and you know

soft drum n' mess
put myself to the test
just let me think
choose what you'll drink

turn off the lights of my loft and baby go
smelling your neck and your body moves so close
touching each inch of your skin, I want to express what I feel
you’re still standing at my wall, and I’m falling in love,
and you moan: T A S T E

tell me where's your chain...
where I'll lock you in
come let me know...
is it too low?

Every little breath coming out from you.
It is like every drop that you sweat
So...

Am I wrong to take it so fast?
Why was I lost in last?

So many years at home, a simple pawn in your chess,
sometimes I know what I feel so I go touching your conscience
with a pair of lips

spare kiss
spare wish
spare
until
you’re
WET!
