The finality of death rests on the assumption that life is something other than illusion.
Conceived from the surreal world between the two extremes, LAZARAS erupted as a testament to a love of horror movies and music. Citing influences including Black Sabbath, the Misfits, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, and the Ramones, the band sought to incorporate their love of death and violence with their love of guitar-driven, aggressive music.
The result is a band that adds a unique flavor to horror rock. The diverse taste and background of the members are reflected in their music. The songs range from short assaults to extended poundings, from punk to metal, from light-hearted horror to eye-gouging terror.
A love for the dead carries over into their stage show. Chuck, Brother D, and Jon bring the horrors of the crypt to the stage with every show they play, complete with ghoulish imagery, larger-than-life props, and the musical fury of a trio of demons. There can be no doubt that LAZARAS genuinely loves to scare the hell out of an audience.
