Black Kaiser Bio
“Bringing the relentless rock 'n' roll attitude of Motörhead, the intricate technicality of Tool, and the thunderous heavy riffs reminiscent of Black Sabbath, nothing can beat the Kaiser machine!”
Black Kaiser is a heavy rock band, led by the visionary musician Kostas Siozos. They are poised to captivate audiences with their powerful music, blending the best of heavy rock and progressive elements. Prepare to be swept away by their unique sound and dynamic performances.
Drawing inspiration from iconic bands such as Black Sabbath, Metallica, Tool, Alice In Chains, and Mastodon, Black Kaiser weaves together a hybrid sound that combines the heaviness of Black Sabbath with the progressive intricacies reminiscent of Tool. Kostas, a multi-talented musician, brings his expertise in bass, vocals, and keyboard to the forefront, creating captivating compositions with mesmerizing lead bass lines and innovative use of special effects.
Currently in the process of recording their debut EP, Black Kaiser is gearing up to release two powerful singles. Collaborating with accomplished musicians, the EP features the skillful drumming of Dinos Roulos (drummer of Nightstalker) and the mesmerizing guitar work of Nikos Stasinos (Heritage's guitar player). The recording took place in Los Angeles at Kostas' personal studio, The Sound of Doom, as well as in Thessaloniki and Athens, Greece, at Grindhouse Studios Athens, where the esteemed George Bokos handled the mix and mastering.
Hailing from Arta, Greece, the band was formed in May 2019 and later relocated to Los Angeles, CA, in September 2019. After the split of his previous band, Heritage, Kostas embarked on a new musical journey, channeling his passion and talent into Black Kaiser.
With a solid reputation in the underground heavy rock/stoner scene of Greece, Heritage had toured extensively and shared the stage with renowned acts like Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne guitar player), Mats Leven (ex. Candlemass), 1000mods, Sasquatch, Holocaust, and more. Building upon this rich experience, Black Kaiser is poised to make a mark with their unique brand of heavy rock.
Looking ahead, Black Kaiser's future plans are as ambitious as their sound. They aim to record a full-length album, embark on tours across the United States and Europe, and even document the recording process through an engaging documentary.
