BLACKENED seemed to have come out of nowhere, but the truth is that every member of the band has been involved in the independent music community for the last decade and a half. The all-star lineup boasts current and former members of the juggernaut that is HATEBREED (Bassist Chris Beattie and original drummer and founding member Dave Russo) as well as current Connecticut contenders and alum alike, including vocalist Jay Reason (THE DISTANCE) and guitarist Chris Legg (FASTBREAK).
Johann Sebastian Bach (21 March 1685, Eisenach O.S. – 28 July 1750 N.S.) was a prolific German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, a control of harmonic and motivic organisation from the smallest to the largest scales, and the adaptation of rhythms and textures from abroad, particularly Italy and France.

Tom Novy aka Thomas Reichold, born in 1970, is a German house DJ and producer. Tom Novy was the first German DJ who mixed the british compilation "Ministry of Sound Annual". He also did remixes for Sonique, Lou Bega, Tom Jones & Mousse T., Backstreet Boys and Snap!.

Worldwide chart successes and appearances in the world’s best clubs seam his career.
Initially a guitarist working with dub, rock and funk bands, Inner Space's Ian Fletcher began experimenting with samplers, sequencers and analogue keyboards with the aim of incorporating them along with live instruments into his music. Fusing together diverse global influences including Indian, Egyptian, Celtic and African styles, his tunes feature dub and funk rhythms laced together with atmospheric keyboard and guitar work.
As a member of Kompakt since the early 90s, Reinhard Voigt has been a key player in the development and subsequent success of this legendary Cologne-based record label. Taking early notes from his infamous older brother Wolfgang Voigt (aka Mike Ink), Reinhard has refined and re-tooled his sound in a direction that has become unmistakeably his own in it's dirty, subversive (yet charming) minimal techno pop.
Monolake was formed in 1995 as the duo of Gerhard Behles and Robert Henke, although on later albums the group consisted of Henke alone, with Behles focusing his time on running the Ableton software company. Their sound can generally be described as minimal techno filled with nice touch of fine tech dub, although the 1999 Gobi. The Desert EP, which contains a single 37-minute atmospheric piece, is a notable exception. Monolake first released an album and several 12"s on Berlin's Chain Reaction label, then on Monolake/Imbalance Computer Music, which is operated by Robert Henke.
