We knew fraternal kinship groups such as Wilsons brothers (Beach boys),brothers Gallagher (Oasis) or other Gallagher (Raven), Buchanan (Exploited) and Hartnoll (Orbital), as well as twin brothers from Good Charlotte.
From a Christian environment known to us brothers Tosti (Pax217), brothers Vulstenhalmy (Lifehouse), Chapin brothers (Tait), brothers Foreman (Switchfoot), brothers Martin (Dance house children),Payne Brothers (All star united), but it`s usually only two or three people, with the involvement of musicians who have no direct blood relations. But Chevelle purely related team, composed of three siblings, a very rare case. It would be trite, if not for the fact that the Chevelle is not just a great band ,and even in mainstream climbed without much straining, given also the fact that sounded Chevelle is not the best Christian rock bands, as it seemed to many in 1998, but in fact Chevelle opened his own style ! They got into the mainstream, we have come up with their own line -. emo bark. , And sell millions of albums, here`s a little family. We, of course, used to the fact that our Christian. tyazhelovesy. out into the mainstream, such as the same : P.O.D., Project86, 12 Stones, Blindside, Pillar, Skillet, but for rock and alternative collectives with a bias in the emo - rock, somehow we do not think. And you. On. ,after the smashing success Lifehouse be devastating mainstream success alternative brotherhood Chevelle, which despite their gravity to. tyazhelym. The Group does not. For starters, let`s look at the history of the group.
So, this is akin to a devastating trio of Chicago (Illinois) , was formed in 1995. The Group is organized Pete Lofler rather his initiative, as it has since the early childhood hollowed drums and felt that it should be somewhere to apply every year. So, in the beginning I was a bit Lofler, and he had a drum, and his brother was running with a guitar in the garage.
The composition of Chevelle include only relatives, if you have not forgotten. three brothers Lofler (Pete, Joe and Sam) , and three of them hit their alternative sound on the road US alternative scene.
Initially, the group played a purely covers, not seeking and do not plan anything serious. Surely every musician to know the time when he begins to think about a serious project ,and looking at him and laughing outside observers, they say, nothing you could not and do not exercise, they say, nonsense. Yet there was an idea to create a real team.
In the process, everything went pretty well, the band started their own something to write. And it was about that time when many Christians are still pulling back from the shock ,obtained in Dc talk show. Welcome to the freak show. It was a time when there were only Christian groups that now are super popular stars.
When the youngest of Joe Lofler showed that plays better than previous boomed, the group began to work in the full composition of a related. Joe was then 14 years. So,the band played and played until no play to that landed on Squint records, which recorded the album Point # 1 to the 4th May 1999. Simply put, the band signed with a fairly significant in the Christian environment label - Squint records, which is very productive, and has represented such artists as : Sixpence non the richer,38 parallel, Skillet, Building 429 novices and others. And who do you think, it was produced by the brotherhood Loflerov album ? Himself Steve Albini, who produced sietlovsky phenomenon of Nirvana and Pixies (!), As well as Bush and Poly Jean Harvey (PJ Harvey). Chevelle originally signed a contract with the Christian label Word records ,owned by Amy Grant and John amuse. Start Group is not planning to be written on the Christian label, but it happened.
Music Chevelle wrote three songs composed Pete and Sam, well, apparently because they both were the instigators of collective Chevelle.

Point # 1. in the category of heavy. luchshaya Christian song. , although, at the time lost in popularity Chevelle dynamic newcomers Earthsuit, which in turn have been nominated for the same category, but all are worth paying attention to ,Chevelle that unique.

Chevelle worked without a break, and it is probably influenced some of the nuances in live recording, since it is to some extent does not seem complete, and is not an indicator ,but all is not bad.

July 29 Chevelle performed at Ozz fest.e with Marilyn Manson and Cradle of filth, both groups openly preach Satanism, made with the Christians ? This statement alarmed many, but someone disappointed. Clear,Chevelle came to performance from a professional point of view and made according to professionals. In general, the confusion. And if the image of Manson is a mockery of accepted moral values and hypocrisy respectable Americans, the image of the Cradle of filth certainly goes beyond all limits of what is permitted. On the other hand such a statement interpreted as an attempt to talk to God as an anti - Christian groups and remind myself, by Chevelle.
