Biography

Formed in 1997 in the middle of sins and happenings of Kuta (Bali), Devildice was put together by JRX (guitar/vocal) and Kuzz (bass), and formerly named Culture On Fire, which chose to be a cover version of Social Distortion, their favorite rock n roll punk band. With the help of friends in drum and guitar, Culture On Fire entertained the Bali underground music scene.

With JRX as the drummer and songwriter of Superman Is Dead (SID), gave this band the impression of a ‘halfhearted band’ and comfortable with the status of a cover version band.

In 2002, JRX realized that he had wrote many songs which were not the character of SID songs but he could use them as songs of Culture On Fire, which was moodier than SID. He, then decided to be more serious in running his second band. After a few personnel changes and renamed the band “Devildice”, JRX and his friends released their first album ‘In The Arms Of The Angels’ in 2004. This album was produced independently with their own fund and label.

Now with the formation of JRX (vocal/guitar), Kuzz (bass), Cash (guitar), T.R (drum), and Mr.F (trumpet), Devildice has performed in variety of music festivals, charity concerts, skate, surf, tattoos, and bike competitions at stadiums, beach, courts, bars, clubs in Bali.

Devildice has also been involved in few environment campaign projects, compilation album, skate videos, surf videos and many more.

In making music and arts, Devildice is influenced by old gangster film, kustom kulture, and the exotism of tropical punk.

Berdiri tahun 1997 ditengah keramaian dosa dan peristiwa di Kuta [Bali], Devildice yang dibentuk oleh JRX [gitar/vokal] dan Kuzz [bass] awalnya memakai nama Culture On Fire dan memilih menjadi band cover version Social Distortion, band rock n roll punk idola mereka. Dibantu oleh beberapa kawan yang mengisi posisi drum dan gitar, Culture On Fire rajin meramaikan acara-acara musik yang bersifat underground di Bali.

Kesibukan JRX yang juga drummer/penulis lagu di Superman Is Dead [SID] membuat Culture On Fire makin terproyeksi menjadi band yang ‘agak kurang serius’ dalam berkarir dan nyaman dengan status band cover version.

Tahun 2002, Jerinx menyadari ia punya banyak stok lagu yang tidak masuk dalam karakter SID namun bisa ia masukkan ke dalam karakter Culture On Fire yang lebih moody. Ia pun memutuskan untuk lebih serius lagi menjalani proyek band keduanya ini. Setelah mengalami bongkar pasang personel dan perubahan nama menjadi Devildice, JRX dan kawan kawan akhirnya merilis mini album perdana Devildice ‘In The Arms Of The Angels’ tahun 2004 dengan biaya dan label sendiri.

Hingga kini Devildice yang diperkuat JRX, Kuzz, Cash [gitar], T.R [drum] dan Mr.F [trumpet] telah bermain di ratusan festival musik, acara amal, skate, surf, tattoos dan motor di stadion, pantai, lapangan, bar/club di Bali.

Devildice juga terlibat dalam beberapa proyek kampanye lingkungan, album kompilasi, skate video, surf video dan lain lain.

Dalam berkesenian, Devildice banyak dipengaruhi film-film gangster jaman dulu, kustom kulture dan eksotisme khas punk tropikal.
