Translate The Name

Translate The Name


Translate The Name takes the guitar sounds of the heavy 80's and 90's rock and mixes it with today's rock, making a sound that combines melodic themes and classic guitar solos with the more modern singing and screaming styles of today's rock and roll.


Translate The Name came to life when guitarists Adrian Chitsaz and Drew Burns met at UCLA and discovered they both shared the same influences and love for all the hard rock that's been out since the 1970s. With the addition of drummer Gregg Allen, singer Scott Mulfall and bassist Alex Aiona, Translate The Name was formed to bring together the best of what every band member had to offer.

Drawing from influences such as Funeral For A Friend, Van Halen, Saosin, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Thrice, Queen, and Killswitch Engage, the guys wanted to bring the best out of all these bands and make it their own. What came to life were styles ranging from catchy punk guitar riffs with stylized solos to a harder sound with breakdowns and screams; giving the music listener a new type of sound that represents the best of 70s, 80s, 90s and today's rock.

When choosing a name, the band decided to let the music listener decide what kind of sound the band has. So the band members decided to choose Translate The Name, which lets people decide for themselves what the band means to them.
