Valient Thorr combine high energy speed rock-n-roll, sweat drenched heavy metal, and ass-shaking punk gospel. With Total Universe Man, Valient Thorr lay down a meaty slab of rock AND roll that cannot be tamed. You won't hear about this kind of action on the news in the United States. The true call has gone out to and has already hit countries like the Ukraine and Uzbekistan and the results have been Earth shattering! These dudes know how to take it to the streets! It's the fervor that America needs! That's the sheer power, energy, and attack that Valient Thorr have, Total Freedom, Total World, Total Sky, Total Package, Total Universe, Man!
Combining the sound of Thin Lizzy, Hawkwind, and Lynyrd Skynyrd with - somehow - just a few average dudes out there to return music to the people that appreciate it, Gypsyhawk is a band's band, a fan's band...and a god damn rock band when rock and roll needs it most. In a time when music is shoveled down your throat, Gypsyhawk backs up the walk (and mabye a little swagger) with rock. The band's first show in their hometown of Pasadena, Calif. yielded an enthusiastic and devoted crowd, showing the promise Gypsyhawk holds in the palm of their hands...well, as soon as this next solo is done. Then they'll have a free hand.... Turn down the lights and turn up the tunes indeed.
Boston's Ramming Speed has it all figured out. Right in the face of what many have labeled as a thrash revival, these five dudes from Boston compacted a few decades of metal, grindcore, and punk influences into a half hour of highly energetic and entertaining classic thrash worship. So what's the trick to rising above other bands when a style of music is enjoying a swell of popularity within the metal community? It's simple: just prove that you love it more than anyone else. And thanks to this product of the thriving Boston DIY scene, listeners will be hard-pressed to find another band more enthusiastic about every corner of the thrash, grindcore, and punk genres
Houston's Venomous Maximus gurgles with the sounds of proto-metal gods Pentagram and Blue Cheer as well as new-school leaders like High on Fire. The headspace of this band falls somewhere between a Alejandro Jodorowsky film and a New Orleans voodoo den. Hail Satan and pass the chicken feet.
The words “I Decline” represent a middle finger to the mediocrity in the world of modern music. Fueled by the attitude of Punk / Stoner Rock and the precision of Heavy Metal, I Decline draws influence from legends like Iron Maiden, Misfits, Trouble, Kyuss, Fugazi, and Black Sabbath. Over the last twelve years, this native Southside Chicago five-piece has independently released two full-lengths with their highly anticipated third release due in 2011. This forthcoming album, “Time To Shine,” is a bombastic onslaught of “fist in the air” anthems for a blue-collar society, stricken with desolation and searching for new hope.
