European Tour Booking for Punk, Rock and Indie Artists

Raw Rock'n'Roll

Black Gremlin is an Italian Rock'n'Roll Band, officially formed in 2013 in Parma. It all started when four friends - already playing in other bands felt the need go back to basics and play some raw Rock'n'Roll. They started jamming together and soon ideas became some of their first concrete tracks.

With the help of their friend and producer Carlo Izzo the band starts recording their debut EP called "Rock and Raw". 7 tracks came to life at the "Elfo Studio" in Piacenza (Italy) at the end of 2013. The tracks in "Rock and Raw" were recorded using an 8 track reel to reel tape recorder. The sound of the band is captured live in all its raw power and the 7 tracks unravel in the glory of the wildest riffs and the angriest solos. The record was released in 2014 on Retrovox Records.

After the release the band spends a year touring all over Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain and France until the exit of original member Henry Bones. Marco Maynard (ex Shinin Shade and present Strato's bass player) joins in early 2016. The attitude of the new album is still rude and in-your-face but the band explores more retro sounds (MC5, Pink Fairies, Thin Lizzy) mixed with early 80s Thrash Metal and Hardcore Punk.


"The result is a heady little collection of songs that combines punk, especially in its attitude, with classic metal, psychedelic doom and fuzzed out noise. It’s admirable in its intent, and effective in its delivery, with suitably intense performances and an appropriately crude production."
