On Halloween night, see Mr. Denton on Doomsday perform LIVE for listening pleasure. Here is a band bio:
"Mr Denton On Doomsday have been on a rampage since forming in the summer of 2006. In that short time, they have performed over 100 shows across the midwest, sold over 2500 CDs and opened for many national recording acts including The Misfits, Nonpoint, Skindred, Adema, Sponge, Six (featuring members of Cypress Hill), Egypt Central, and Scum of the Earth (featuring Riggs, guitarist for Rob Zombie). In Sept of 2008 Mr Denton's song "Karo" was added to the rotation on over 400 Internet Radio Stations. Mr Denton On Doomsday have performed at such legendary venues as The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Planet Rock in Battle Creek, the infamous I-Rock in Detroit, The Machine Shop in Flint, and Harpos America's largest concert theatre. With a fervent, loyal fan base, a full-length album in the final stages of production, and an endless calender of gigs this band shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Mr Denton On Doomsday includes vocalist Travis in addition to members Fate (Guitar, vocals), Bush (Bass), and Benjamin (Drums). Although these diverse band mates cite King Crimson, Black Sabbath, Queens Of The Stone Age and many others as influences, they create a sound unique unto themselves. Mr Denton On Doomsday is known for clever, insightful lyrics touching on the world of politics as well as personal conflicts and the degradation of rock music as a whole.
With a base in metal and a foot in the door of funk, it's hard to pigeon-hole Mr Denton On Doomsday into one particular music style. Whether it's the soulful blues soloing of Fate, the wah-wah induced funk of Bush's bottom line, or the syncopation of erratic drums beats, each member brings something different to a band not content to settle for less. Their love for the music is evident in every note of every song, and every drop of blood or sweat left on stage. If given the opportunity to see Mr Denton On Doomsday live, then do one thing: Don't miss it!
"Mr Denton on Doomsday's sound falls somewhere between a modern day King Crimson and Black Sabbath, with music that's fresh, original, uncharted." -Anne Erickson - Lansing State Journal
"Each song from Mr Denton On Doomsday is completely unique from the next. Some songs have distinct changes throughout, making you think you are hearing a fusion of several different bands." - Andrew Rogers - LCC"S The Lookout"
