Crannk Interviews Shred Rogers

Jai That Aussie Metal Guy recently caught up with Shred Rogers who delivers a fast, fun, and family-friendly form of heavy metal and doing his best to put positivity into his music, with tracks like “I’m A Nut”, “Baa Baa Black Sheep” & “Wheels On The Bus” this is a metal album you can enjoy with the junior metal heads in the family. We talked about his work with A Dark Halo and All Things Shred Rogers and the debut album “The Circle” which was released on the 5th of April.

Christopher comments: 

“Some of these songs have been ideas I’ve had for over ten years, while others have been tribute pieces I’ve been called to create here and there the last few years. I am so very excited to share this recording with you as I release it worldwide on Friday, April 5th, 2024!”

From “Alive” inspired by instrumentals released in the past by MEGADETH, METALLICA, and DREAM THEATER, to the reimagining of nursery rhymes “Baa Baa Black Sheep” and “Wheels On The Bus”, SHRED ROGERS brings something for everyone. For cat lovers, “An Ode To Cats” explores a day in the lives of our feline friends, while “Brahms Lullaby von Shred” is the longest song on the album comprised of two parts: the first being a classic rock clean piece with light percussion and the second part being a metal instrumental. 

About SHRED ROGERS: Based out of Three Rivers, MI, SHRED ROGERS emerged as an idea when Christopher began to foster and subsequently adopt his three children. Christopher has been a musician most of his life playing heavy metal of various types, with his most successful endeavor to date being co-founding A DARK HALO with Dave Lowmiller around 2004. When A DARK HALO was on hiatus from 2006 to around 2018, Christopher sought to write new heavy music. This time, creating something fun and family-friendly, but retaining the heaviness of music he loves and is inspired by. 2016 saw the release of the demo “Wheels On The Bus” under the moniker DADDY DEATH METAL and to date this demo video has racked up 56K views. 

2018 brought the return of A DARK HALO and Christopher constructed his own home recording studio. Deciding to take his solo project further, it was rebranded as SHRED ROGERS with a focus on producing family-friendly metal across multi-media forms including music, video content, and comic books. Musically, SHRED ROGERS draws influence from the likes of METALLICA, DEVIN TOWNSEND, DIMMU BORGIR, and DREAM THEATER.

 “To Achieve your Dreams, Wear your Heart on your Sleeve, Do your Best and Be Brave…The SHRED ROGERS Way!”
