Line of Defense

Established in 2009, Line of Defense brings a unique twist upon today’s modern rock style utilizing their influences ranging from 1980’s hair metal, to 1990’s grunge rock, to today’s modern rock artists with a few breakdowns thrown in there for flavor! Hailing originally from the Massillon Jackson area, LOD consists of four members: Lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Zakk Stayer who currently attends the Kent Stark branch of Kent State University, Drummer Mitch Stayer (brother of Zakk) who is attending Kent State University, Bassist David Bruno who currently resides in and attends the University of Akron, and Lead Guitarist Alex Braholli. Together they have toured all over NE Ohio rocking venues such as at Peabody's in Cleveland, The Iron Saddle Saloon, The Cleveland Agora, The Carraige House, The Richville Homecoming Festival, The Jackson Belden Food Fest for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Canton Palace theater, the Auricle in Canton and countless other great venues! Along the way they have opened for some of the bigger names in the local, and even national music scene such as LA GUNS, J-man Band, Jackie, Breakline, and more! The group currently has a five track EP released in early 2011, and are in the finalization process on approximately ten new originals set to be laid down in a studio within the next few months. They play their original music as well as covers from the best of Stone Temple Pilots, Staind, Seven Mary Three, Blink 182, Creed, Chevelle, Billy Idol, Alkaline Trio, God Smack, Pearl Jam, Collective Soul, Seether, and many more!
