About Us
Uncompromising, adrenaline-fueled melodic power metal. In an era rife with sameness and predictability, BODRAGAZ has emerged as a true standalone. With a catalog of eight full-length albums and an array of arena, festival and showcase appearances, BODRAGAZ is more than ready to take it to the next level.

Featured shows have included direct supporting act for BON JOVI - Denver’s Pepsi Center Arena on the “Have a Nice Day” tour, live performances at ROCKLAHOMA, COLORADO ROCK JAM, and BURLINGTON STEAMBOAT DAYS among some of the music festivals. BODRAGAZ has also performed with national touring acts, DOKKEN, SLAUGHTER, Y&T, MICHAEL SCHENKER, SPOCK’S BEARD, ENUFF Z’NUFF and many others.

On the brink of a new era in Heavy Metal Music, BODRAGAZ have established a sound completely their own! Mixing the elements of Power, Symphonic, Progressive and Melodic Rock, BODRAGAZ delivers a Fuel-Adrenaline, Power-Punch of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal unlike any other. This Denver-based Quintet has 8 CD’s to their credit, with their most recent release, “20” gaining worldwide recognition and 4 star reviews! Next step… is to begin national/international touring, and take the world by storm!
