Hailing from Honolulu’s original dark underground scene and venues like the original Dungeon and The Wave Waikiki, Razed in Black was started in 1994 by solo electronic composer Romell Regulacion. The project, formerly known as Lost Souls, caught the eye of LA’s well-known gothic industrial label Cleopatra Records, who signed the band as Razed in Black. Gaining worldwide exposure, Razed in Black’s music, which combines elements of industrial, synthpop, dark wave, gothic rock, and hardcore techno, has been featured in television shows including The WB’s Mission Hill and NBC’s Homicide: Life on the Streets, as well as in movies and video games like Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam. Regulacion has also released material under the names DJ R<I>B, DJ Skooby and Transmutator.
The one-of-a-kind show on September 8 marks Razed in Black’s first stage appearance since 2003, and is sure to be an intense and electric performance. The Honolulu stage lineup will be: Romell Regulacion on guitars, vocals and music programming, Ivan Delaforce of the hit broadway showstopper STOMP on drums, and former YTV Canadian television show host Jacques Phil Guerrero on guitars and backing vocals, with Danny Laforga and Conor Haley providing electronics and show support.
The show also features DJs Nocturna, Du Nord and Nightfox playing the best in nostalgic goth, industrial, EBM and dark alternative music, and special performances by members of Honolulu’s dark alternative scene:
