Hard rockers Venrez certainly caused a buzz with ‘Children of the Drones’

Los Angeles-based hard rockers Venrez certainly caused a buzz with their 2015 release, 'Children of the Drones.' And now, they're set to go over the top with their latest offering, 'Element 115.' Upon first listen to the disc, it quickly becomes apparent that the band (which is comprised of singer Ven [aka Steven Berez], guitarist and backing vocalist Jason Womack, bassist Gabe Maska, and drummer Victor Singer, has created their strongest musical offering to date. "Jason produced the album," explains Ven." He writes the music for Venrez, I write the lyrics. It's always so much fun working in the studio with just Jason and me recording vocals. 

The new album is a clear evolution of our sound. I would say it's still heavy like the last record but perhaps a bit deeper soundscape wise and a bit more psychedelic." And the album's leadoff single, "Rearranged," serves as the perfect taster for the album. And according to the band's singer, the track, as well as a few others, are his favorite selections. "I would say the single 'Rearranged,' "End of Tea", which is my own chapter to Alice in Wonderland and "One Way Ticket(Ode to Chris), my tribute song written for my idol, friend and next door neighbor for years Chris Cornell. As it turns out, Element 115" could not have arrived at a better time, as it can quite possibly serve as the much-needed kick that radio-ready rock n' roll so sorely needs. 

"I think it's what rock needs right now. It's melodic, heavy, the groove is unique and the songs have lyrics with powerful lessons and messages. Venrez is a cerebral band that makes you think while you enjoy the music. I feel it's a new genre all together, which I call 'Epic Alternative Rock' - or 'EAR' for short. Lastly, the singer offers a glimpse into what we can expect from Venrez in the future. "Well, we intend to tour at least 12 to 14 months behind this album, before we stop to record another. We have no intention of anything other than continuing to write, record, and tour. We will keep knocking on the door until the God of Rock opens it for us!"
