Biography

Hailing from just outside of Detroit, MI, BAT ON FIRE blends hard rock, progressive metal, and classical music theory with original stories based on human history to create a truly unique musical experience. Compared to revered artists such as Avenged Sevenfold, Mastodon, Tool, Pantera, Iron Maiden, System Of A Down, The Mars Volta, and many more, this intelligent gang electrifies every crowd, every time.

Formed in June 2006 by music producer/engineer and session drummer John Kowaleski and hip-hop vocalist Karlos Kowaleski, BAT ON FIRE began as a way for the two brothers to just enjoy working together after years of pursuing different musical paths. BOF (as they are commonly known) grew into something bigger than imagined after adding guitarist virtuoso and singer-songwriter Michael Hopper and session and funk bassist John “Wolf “ Abel of the 2011 Detroit Music Awards People’s Choice winners, The Infatuations. “John and I had been wanting to play and write with each other for years, and the timing was just right,” says Wolf, “But the final piece of the puzzle was Joe.” Wolf refers to Joe Allen, BAT ON FIRE’s soft spoken guitarist and the glue of the rhythm section who says, “I love being around great musicians, and working with these guys is nothing short of amazing.”
