Dance Club Massacre

dance_club_massacreDance Club Massacre is an American deathcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed 2004. The band originated as a simple recording project between founding members Nick Seger and Kurt Latos. After recording three songs described as “Halloween-core” and distributing them to friends, the project became a complete band. The band plays an experimental mixture of deathcore and black metal. They name influences like The Locust, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, An Albatross, Daughters, Converge, Horse the Band, Fantomas, Pig Destroyer and Between the Buried and Me, however they have many unique qualities to them, namely their incorporation of indie rock styles. Also, their lyrical style focuses on such themes as partying, girls, beer and enjoying life in general rather than the morbid or aggressive themes extreme metal bands traditionally employ.

Dance Club Massacre recorded their first demo in early 2005 at Blam Recording in Chicago. The demo had seven tracks and 150 hand pressed copies were made. These demos were sold at shows and through their Myspace page. Shortly after the release of the demo, Matt Hynek took Kurt Latos’ place as keyboardist.
