Enve was formed in 2000 when Kirk Romero finished recording his first musical project titled Incision. He showed his childhood friend John Lemos his work and together they decided to create the band Enve. Shortly after that Kirks father, Frankie joined the band as the drummer and high school friend Mike Lascola as bassist. They rehearsed the songs from "Incision" for about a year before they decided to book some shows. They played various places in the Sacramento Ca. area, and got a lot a positive feedback. It took only a handful of shows for them to receive attention from a local radio D.J. Shortly after that they were featured on a radio program called "Local Licks". It was apparent to the band that people were gaining interest in them. Enve decided to do something that nobody expected. Instead of continuing to gig they decided to go back into there studio and record an album as a band. It took them almost three years to complete the album. During that time bassist Mike Lascola left the band and moved to Arizona.
Enve consists of four members. Kirk Romero is the front man and driving force behind it all. He wrote the "Incision" album that brought the four men together. Frankie Romero is the drummer of Enve. He also acts as the P.R. man. He has a natural talent for communication. John Lemos plays rhythm and lead and contributes material to the band. Anthony Macaluso is the new addition to the band and covers the bass work. The band is located in the Calaveras and Amador county area.
As far as music goes, Enve brings a sound unlike what is out there today. Their aggressive and gritty guitar tracks are accompanied by palatable vocal tracks that you normally don't hear with this style of music. Every song brings a barrage of riffs and thunderous drum tracks. These songs are not in your typical mainstream format but are well thought out. It seems this band has no problem writing since they have 20 + original songs under their belt. The "Manifest Destiny" album is a large improvement from "Incision" both in sound quality and material.
When it comes to raw energy, solid material, live performance, and business sense, Enve answers the call.
