Brief Bio:- THE REKKENING
West coast rebels that give no FUCKS!
THE REKKENING is definitely a think outside the box type band.
Their versatility and style cannot be put into a specific genre.
We play what WE Feel!!
The leader of the band -Tracey Lynn Shane( lead vocals/lyrics/writer) started THE REKKENING after years of tragedy and loss, in 2008. She brings all of her experiences to the table to breathe life into and entwine the audience with feelings of love, hate, remorse, gratitude...the list goes on. Being a very emotional person herself she is not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve, or on her leg (first band logo hearts pulling apart tattooed ). This is the extent to which she believes THE REKKENING has an advantage and is set apart from the “NORM” of other bands, that when you hear 1 song , the rest sounds the same as the other. Not the case with THE REKKENING their true staying power is in every song being different and keeping everything real and raw, the way they would sound live. This is not a new concept by any means, it's just gotten lost somewhere along the way in the music industry. Tracey's influences are: Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Metallica, to name a few. Quote- (Tracey Lynn Satann) My life has not been a neat little box with a bow on it , so why would my music? Adding...”My music gives me an outlet to express my feelings positively.” Her songwriting partner GoReDzilla adds a particular earth pounding BASS sound that is second to none. GoReDzilla has played in many different local Vancouver bands over the years and his experience with live, recording and promotion is an asset that cannot be replaced. His belief in THE REKKENING is nonparallel and it shows as he has been in the band since 2008. His leadership in the band stands out in so many ways, he has helped Tracey become the confident talented lead singer she is today. His ability to move THE REKKENING forward is unlike any other.
Some of GoReDzilla's influences are: Black Flag, Iron Maiden,NIN,Dillinger Escape plan, and many others.
