“As a band they have drawn inspiration from traditional hard rock bands like Motörhead, Metallica and Black Sabbath who’s own Ozzy Osbourne was good friends with the band at their inception. Their influences also go to the likes of the Cure, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees and they are particularly inspired by many bands from oversees such as Rob Zombie, Lordi from Finland and Nightwish from Norway. They hope to take the enjoyable side of heavy rock and gothic culture and to create their own fictional world which can by inhabited by them and their fans – musical reactionaries have been strictly exiled!
Welcome to EvilZgate, a fictional land of castles, heavy mists and dark mystery fraught by warfare between the evil ‘Demoncock Corporation’ who aim to monopolise the music market with heartless talent shows fighting the noble and courageous Jokerbats. Residing in nearby Brutons Castle, the Jokerbats have been locked in guerrilla warfare with the Corporate for hundreds of years, fighting back their barrages of tedium and monotony with their own brand of hard rock. They cast spells of theatricality, eccentricity and musical exuberance over the Corporation to try and liberate its prisoners from imprisonment. The full Chronicles of EvilZgate can be found here”
