Dragon Red, a band Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the mastermind of rapper Landslyde of the former Poetic Ammo fame which started out at the end of 2001 with guitarist Amil Khan and the vocalist Adam Lobo. The band currently features Brandon Gomez on the drums and Camero on Bass. The name Dragon Red was chosen because according to Chinese scripture, the dragon represents strength and courage and the colour red represents power and passion which are the elements the band brings with their music and energetic live performances.
Dragon Red incorporates elements of rock, hip hop, punk, funk and fusion into their music styles but the Band is basically categorised as a rap-rock outfit for the first album, more rock based sounding for the second album and looking to go back to the original sounds or rap rock with a little hint of metal flavour into their upcoming third album.
In terms of the music writing process, music arrangement input comes from all five individual members of the Band with different elements of the affiliation of the same genre of music.
The Band believes that its music, best represents the Band and nothing beats the live experience that Dragon Red offers to the general public as the onstage chemistry and the energy levels they generate when it comes to live shows are extremely entertaining and most of the time can induce crowd moshing and body surfing.
Dragon Red individually are influenced by bands such as “Sevendust”, “Alter Bridge”, “Creed”, “Linkin Park”, “Korn”, “Limp Bizkit” and heavier bands like “System Of A Down” & “Killswitch Engage” where the Band blends all their individual influences to form the type of music produced and written by the band with no external song writers.
