“Resurrecting the remains of death metal’s primitive and marveled past, Grave Plague began in late 2015 as a vehicle to exercise the demons of old school death metal into twisting, chaotic, and haunting formation. Inspired by both classic American and European underground extreme metal, vintage 70s and 80s horror, and generally all things macabre and putrid, expect nothing less than death metal played the way only the tried and true remember it …ugly, raw, uncompromising, and untamed!” from original promo
“After 4 years of gigging around NYC and the northeast and 3 years after releasing their debut album No Gods, No Monsters, Signals of Bedlam have released their second album Escaping Velocity via Bandcamp, Spotify, Itunes, and GooglePlay Music. Escaping Velocity is progressive rock. Signals of Bedlam have many influences, but the bands that draw them together are Karnivool, The Mars Volta, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and The Dear Hunter.” from original promo
“The band’s sound is a dense and measured hybrid of doom, hesher and prog that sedates and bludgeons with equal abandon. In a musical environment where attention spans are null, Drude make music that commands attention.” – from original promo
“With the upcoming release of their monolithic first full length, Stone & Skin, Thera Roya are preparing themselves to tour on their most important material yet. In a world where we are finally starting to see post metal get the recognition it deserves, Thera Roya will put out one of the genres most worthy records. Forward thinking, overpowering and strangely transcendent, Stone & Skin is the sound of the future.” – from original promo
