Bravura, straight out of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada delivers an explosive mix of progressive rock, heavy metal, breakdowns, and melodic-harmonic dual riffs.
The band consists of five members. Kaleb “DuckMan” Duck is the lead vocalist and guitarist. His playing style and soloing is heavily influenced by the 80’s & 90’s hard rock scene. He is currently touring with Canadian rock legends Helix. Jonah Kay plays a seven string electric guitar with the lower string bringing a full embodiment to their sound. Travis MacKinnon finishes the trio of electric guitarists with marvelous leads and vocal harmonies. Five string bass melodies are played by Justin Ferrari who also adds backing vocals. Drummer Darren Venhuizen plays a five-piece kit with a generous amount of cymbals; his beats work up a thrashy new metal groove with a blending of rock.
Having spent the last year recording and producing their first full-length, self-titled album, the band is currently gearing up for a tour to fuel its release. “We all learned a lot about recording an album and what it takes to do it all yourselves. None of us can wait for what the rest of this journey holds for us,” comments singer DuckMan. Bravura’s do-it-yourself attitude is evident when speaking with the members. Jonah says, “We wanted to get the best sound we could, period. It took a lot of hours but we accomplished our goal. I couldn’t be happier.”
Their first music video, for the song “Born in Prison,” is set to accompany the album’s release. The band plans to promote the album internationally to the wider metal community. By creating the sound they crave, Bravura intends to prove that metal can appeal to many walks of life.
The most important thing to the band is their FANS. “The fans are our lifeblood! Where would we be without them!?“ asks Ferrari. Bravura connects with fans through their website and linked social networking profiles by hosting videos, holding contests, releasing secret songs, giving the latest details about their shows and much more!
