Cherries On A Blacklist is a Greek/Mexican band currently located in
Hamburg, Germany formed by Andreas (Guitar/Vocals), George (Guitar
Vocals), Malapärt (Drums/Vocals), and Gonzo (Bass). Gonzo replaced former
bassist and vocalist Sebastian Knop in 2009.
Cherries On A Blacklist recorded their first EP titled “14” in the summer of
2008. Their debut album “Lakafigo” was recorded in winter of 2010 with
producer Olman Viper (Null Zwei Studios in Hamburg) who has worked with
bands such as Caliban, Kreator, and Emil Bulls. In August 2011 the band
founded their own label named “Grey Ham Records” and through that
released their first single “Goat in the Yard” on October 14th, 2011. The single
was followed by their debut album “Lakafigo” on May 4th, 2012.
“Lakafigo” was well received by the media (reviews, interviews, airplays, etc.)
from all around the globe (Germany, France, England, Greece, Italy, Spain,
Holland, India, Canada, U.S.A, Australia, etc.).
The band has performed around Europe, and shared the stage with bands
such as D.A.D, Die Happy, Ohrenfeindt, Planet of Zeus, One Fine Day, and
Asteroid. In 2013 Cherries On A Blacklist headlined their first international
show at the VIT Riviera Festival in Vellore, India.
In 2014 Cherries On A Blacklist, and producer Olman Viper started the
recording of their second album “Glorious Days”. The album was recorded live
at the famous Horus Sound Studio (Guano Apes, Emil Bulls, Donots,
Paradise Lost) in Hannover, Germany.
One year later, George decided to take some time off from the band due to
personal reasons. After careful thought, and consideration the role was finally
taken over by long time friend Vasilis. On October 30th of 2015 Cherries On A
Blacklist released “Barrel of a Gun” the first single of their second album
“Glorious Days”. “Glorious Days” is planned for release in the summer of
Thousand of miles away from the US west coast and a certain rainy city that spawned a handful of bands in the 90’s, lives a trio, hotter that the spicy sauce it’s named after. Don’t let their youngish looks fool you, Yellow Devil Sauce have been at it for more than a decade and are still going strong.
It all started in 1999 when Alex (guitars, vocals), George (drums) and Costas (bass) got together and started rehearsing. The talent was apparent and a 1st place in a Battle of the Bands type of contest was granted very soon. “DeskJob” demo was released in 2001, giving a taste of the band’s main ingredients, a massif rhythm section, adventurous guitar lines, amazing vocal delivery. The influence from Tool, Nirvana and the Seattle scene in general was obvious but well received as the band was too good at it. In 2004, Costas -a great bassist- left due to artistic differences. In came Theodoris (ex Crimson Sunsets), equally great at his bass but with a frame of mind closer to the band’s perspective.
The new line up soon entered the studio for the band’s eponymous debut. Covered in mustardish colours, Yellow Devil Sauce was released in 2006 through the indie label X-art.ici Music, going down the same lane as the demo, musicwise.
In 2010, a cooperation between the band, Spinalonga Records, Catch The Soap Productions and TFK Productions brings “Early Dinner At Dr.Chakravartis” to light. For their sophomore release, the Sauce changed producer and studio and added a sip of the Melvinian poison in their sound, resulting in a stellar album carried on the backbone that George and Theo built, letting Alex’ composing potential shine throughout.
Besides the aforementioned work, the band has participated in 3 Spinalonga comps and played alongside many great acts like the Bellrays and Dub Trio and Truckfighters.
Cellar Dogs is heavy groove rock band from Athens, Greece, formed in 2012.
