No One's Kind is: Dan Cooper - vocals Ryan John - guitar, vocals Mark Hartzler - guitar Marcin Kuc - bass Cullen Corley - drums Since the first hammer of a bass, cry of an electric guitar, or pound of a drum, No One's Kind has fought to bring into this world a kind of expression that would make a difference. Beginning simply as a basement act out of Wakefield, Massachusetts, the members matured alongside their music. Knowing that urge, and embracing what they knew, the band formed under their name, and began to give birth to their unique style of mind numbing rock. Originally drawing from some of their stronger influences such as Finger Eleven, Sevendust, and Deftones, the band began to draw local attention during the fall of 1999. No One¹s Kind worked their way up to the title of 'Best Local Band in Boston of 2003' as printed by the Boston Phoenix. Growing and changing, each member contributed his own styling to form a merged whole. Cullen Corley's drums act as the lifeblood of the group, forming the foundation of rhythms/grooves and an intense live show that is unmatched. Marcin Kuc with his back beating bass grooves, lays the pulse of the hard rocking numbers. Guitarists Ryan John (ex-Useless) and Mark Hartzler paint the model and harmonies of the music, forcing emotion down the listener's throat with a shovel. Overlaying it all, Cooper's voice melds the pieces together to create the conditioned sound that has crawled it's way into the hearts of fans throughout the area. The band sets it's roots in more traditional outlets. With over half of the members originally cut from a background of classical music, No One's Kind carefully blends the musical stylings of everything that has brought them this far. Touches of rock, jazz, and blues, have carried their expressive music and lyrics to what they are today. Giving themselves to their friends and fans in Massachusetts, the band continues to branch out and extend it's reach in New England. No One's Kind continues to push the envelope of the local scene in and around the Boston area. Following their unrelenting passion for music, the band will continue to write and perform as long as there are stages to be touched. Now based out of Boston, this 5 piece pulls together the best elements of metal and rock. Musically dynamic, ranging from the overlaid smooth cleans, to ridiculously heavy breakdowns most similar to elements of Killswitch Engage, Thrice, and Dredg. Vocally a 3 piece with many layers, comparable to A Perfect Circle, and From Zero. The band spent this past year writing a new record, and returned to the stage alongside The Used, Killswitch Engage, Underoath and over 6500 fans at the Taste of Chaos show in Massachusetts.
