SAN ANTONIO- Evil Come, Evil Go… go right into The Garage this week that is. On this episode of The Garage we have a local San Antonio band that is mixing two great genres of music together, metal and punk. Click here to watch…
The band is a typical four piece but with a not so typical sound. Evil Come, Evil Go have created a melting pot of different sounds to make what they are today.
They have breakdowns worthy of Iron Maiden fans and punk beats like The Misfits, which just so happen to be two of Evil Come, Evil Go’s influences. But they don’t just get their influences from other bands, they also love horror movies which play into the songs they make and the name of the band itself which came from an old 70’s movie.
Don Domino heads the band and, yes, that is his stage name. There is also Nathaniel Villarreal on guitar, Code Blue (Cody) the bass player, and ChrisToFear on the drums, who is the first person to have Christopher spelled out that awesome way.
Their song titles “Fire and Rage” and “Madman” really show their diverse metal and punk way of creating music with Chris beating on the drums quick, Nathaniel’s fast metal hands playing guitar, Cody’s deep base, and Don’s killer scream singing coming together to create Evil Come, Evil Go. “It’s like a punk evolution… whatever you call it we’ll bring it,” said Don.
Even though Evil Come, Evil Go has only been around since 2008 they have made some great accomplishments. Already they have played with The Misfits, yes I mean THE MISFITS! The band’s record company Anthem Studios sponsors a music enrichment program at the YMCA where Evil Come, Evil Go teaches people to play the guitar and read music. Nathaniel said what’s good about the enrichment program is that people are learning to solve problems and to use other parts of their brain through music.
March 10th is their CD release show at Zombies on Thousand Oaks, $7 for adults and $5 for minors. This is their first album and has five songs on it. Don said, “Come out and support the local music scene.” Evil Come, Evil Go will also be jamming with fellow local bands Iron Liver and R12.
