Devil Eyes have been carving their name into the underbelly of Montreal's rock scene since early 2006. Their music is a raw and lean explosion of garage, no wave, klezmer, noise, blues, metal and Japanese punk, yet they somehow manage to make sense out of the chaos in a joyfully ear shattering ream of songs. The trio have been making their own style of experimental dance punk, but check influences like Motorhead, Guitar Wolf, Bob Log III, Comets on Fire, Les Rallizes Dénudés and Captain Beefheart as well as bands like ESG and The Contortions.
Matt, Emily and Zen respectively play guitar, bass and drums in Devil Eyes and they all sing. The fierce trio of rockers spent the last few years honing their sound together in the local scene, sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Log III, The Zoobombs, Bison BC and Dark Meat. The raw immediacy of their recorded tracks underline their live shows which have inspired both dance parties and moshpits, fried PA systems, demolished drum kits, and smashed, drilled and bullwhipped guitars.
