When asked to summarize KLANK’s music and lyrical direction, Diolosa has explained that, “Writing music is a form of therapy that helps to release bottled up frustrations and emotions that otherwise have no outlet… We write music that we feel comes from deep down inside and a lot of people can relate because it’s based on real life situations and emotions from living our everyday life… From mood swings, bitterness, the longing for inner peace to elements of hope, happiness & even despair. We all have to deal with these in our lives and this is our way to vent those issues… We call it 'sonic therapy'.” After the release of NUMB, Diolosa contributed vocals to the song “Silhouette Of Rage” found on Argyle Park’s “Suspension of Disbelief” release. In 2007 the band released the “In Memory Of…” EP which featured the trademark KLANK sound of layers of guitars, keyboards, samples, thumping bass, live and programmed drums fused with melodic, deep heartfelt introspective lyrics. "In Memory Of…" containes the song "EXPN2Day", which the band had written, by request of ESPN specifically for their extreme sports and music show called "EXPN2Day" On April 20, 2010 KLANK unleashed their "NUMB...Reborn" release which contains 15 tracks of the classic KLANK sound. Songs like Don't Count Me Out, Blind, D.F.L.
and The Rules tip the scales of heaviness, while songs like Broken, God? and So Very Real lets the bands melodic side shine through in full form. KLANK's latest offering titled "URBAN WARFARE" was released on June 12, 2012 and is being hailed not only as the bands best but also their strongest release to date. Complete with a guest appearance by Dug Pinnick from KING's X, this new cd really packs a punch. Urban Warfare contains 14 blistering brand new tracks and was mastered by renowned audio wizard Maor Appelbaum in Los Angeles, CA. "We wanted to put out a CD that fully captures the live essence and intensity of what KLANK is live and we couldn't be happier with the result", explains Diolosa. On March 27, 2013, KLANK hit number one in the Reverbnation metal charts for San Jose and has been residing there since.
As of August 1, 2013 they even made it to the number six slot in the Reverbnation NATIONAL metal charts. See for yourself how KLANK mesh the aggression and pounce of metal with the infectious drive of the dance floor and intertwines it within a foreground of synths, samples, loops and low end to form a truly unique sound all their own.
