Motograter

Motograter was formed in 1995 and is most well known for their namesake instrument the “Motograter”, a mysterious contraption designed with industrial cable, guitar pieces, and other components, to create a unique, low, distorted bass sound. The band is widely known for their image, notorious for covering themselves in tribal style body paint. The early stages of the group’s career consisted of heavy experimentation with industrial sounds, samples, and tribal drums. The band released two EP’s ‘Hugh Chardon’ and ‘Indy’ and in 2001 were signed to Sever Records, founded by Dez Fafara of Coal Chamber. The band’s sound continued to evolve, eventually incorporating a dark, groove-oriented guitar styling, that would help broaden the band’s appeal and reach a wider audience. In 2003, the band inked a deal with No Name/Elektra Records and released the highly acclaimed. self-titled album, ‘Motograter’, featuring Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch/Ghost Machine) on vocals. The song “Suffocate” was featured on the soundtrack to the film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The song “Down” is featured on the EA Sports video game Nascar Thunder 2004. Motograter toured on Ozzfest 2003. Motograter has toured with Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Chevelle, Disturbed, Ministry, Nothingface, Kittie, Mushroomhead, Cradle of Filth, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, Voivod, and many more.

Motograter recently performed Knotfest 2014, alongside Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Danzig, Anthrax, and more; followed by National Tours with ILL NINO, DOPE, FLAW, AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE, AND HED PE.

Seven Days Lost

Starting members Mike Trejo and Joseph Vallejos,

a small skeleton crew from Pueblo Colorado's known

Metal Masters 1990's "WICKED WAYZ" had a Devilish Nightmare

in their heads when they came up with the plot for

Seven Days Lost.



Re-mastered songs like Hammer Down and Suicide Saturday Night

have found their way into the current set list and

still rock the crowd to the point of exhaustion.

Se7en-Days-Lost was officially founded in the

dark heart of a cold winters night in early 2007,

following a series of performances at Mike Trejo's - Hell's Circus.

Hell's Circus is promoted as "The Loudest Show on Earth",

and for that you need a crew of Hard Rock Monsters with the

balls to turn it up both musically and visually!! Ear bleeding solos,

heart stopping thunderous sound and a over the top visual

appearance is required to live up to this kind of billing.Band members

Gary Higdon (Bass & Vocals), Mike Rodriguez (Drums & Vocal),

Joseph Vallejos (Lead Guitar & Vocals), and front man Michael Trejo (Guitar & Vocals)

have performed together as the musical muscle…



the fire breathing motor, that had driven the Hell's Circus show.

The need became apparent that this Hard Rock - Heavy Metal Nightmare,

needed it's own identity, so it could continue to reek havoc and mayhem

beyond the Big Top of Pain known as Hell's Circus, from this

Se7en-Days-Lost was born.



The band strives to entertain it's fans with not only songs that are

Thick as a Brick & Twice as Hard, but a with a growing, constantly

evolving live show that visually captivates the viewer and draws them into

a musical web of hooks! Once there, there is no escape…

2009 marked 7DL first official shows outside of Hell's Circus

and the beginning of a recording project. Plan on CD & DVD

projects in 2010 along with new merchandise and a

much more aggressive playing schedule.



Hell's Circus features musicians from the the band "Se7en-Days-Lost"

as the musical motor that drives the shows,

along with several other area guest musicians.

The Circus also features Dancer's and Actors

from some of the area theater companies.

Most of the dancers come from Dance Unlimited School of Dance.

Hell's Circus is one of Mike Trejo's ongoing projects,

which include his local cable TV show

"Access Unlimited" (www.accessunlimitedtv.com)

Members of the Circus change from show to show

and many of the performers return to later events,

but the core of the songs that act as the sound track to A Hell's Circus show are written

by Mike Trejo from his past and current projects.



HELL'S CIRCUS..... I remember working in a gas station years ago

with my boom box playing some of my favorite rock music,

when a gentleman walked in and grimaced

and put his hands on his ears, even though the music was turned down.

He looked at me and said "That is the Devil's music!"

and informed me that I was going to hell,

even though he knew nothing about me

or what kind of person I was.

There has always been people and some religious leaders,

who have dubbed it as Evil or Wicked, ...........

"the Devil's music."

Never mind that majority of the Rock songs subject matter

is the same as many other forms of more socially accepted music.

So when it came time to give this beast of my own creation a name,

I asked myself, "What in the hell do you call this

Rock and Roll Roller Coaster Ride?"

One of the Descriptions of a Circus in the Dictionary is:

A place or activity marked by rowdy or noisy disorder.

My Frankenstein needed a name

that described it in such a way that made meaning of it's being.

My vision is to merge visual stimulation and audio ecstasy.

The show is geared toward the likes of

Alice Cooper & Rob Zombie.

Shows such as these conjure up images of evil for those who believe that Rock n Roll is Wicked. ............

This is a show packed with action and entertainment

placed on a foundation of Rock music that has a sound that is as

thick as brick and twice as hard.

That is why it is called:

Hell's Circus A Rock'n Roll Psychodrama

with no real story that connects one song to the next

in it's live performance.

The jumbled ranting of mad men.......

Just a series of underlying short stories bound together by the theme of there presentation.

Words that have meaning and stories that have reason,

but are often miss-inturpreted and twisted to feed the listeners own personal views.

When you come to a Hell's Circus show,

we mean only to entertain you for the time you care to share with us.

We Hope to see you when the circus comes to your town!!!...

Michael J. Trejo
