EVOKED

visit EVOKED on facebook visit EVOKED on Bandcamp Hailing from East Westphalia, Germany, EVOKED first reared their ugly heads in 2013 from a spread of rank riffs songwriter Bonesaw had been carrying around for some time to follow traditional paths in two respects –making their name known with a modest yet lauded demo “Return of the Dead” which, quite fittingly, spread undiluted death the old (and only) way. Without missing a beat, the still shifting but thanks to the front man’s uncompromising lead and vision dedicated line-up churned out two additionalshort formats. The 4-way split with TURBOCHARGED, VIOLENTOR, OBSCYRIA and the EP „Lifeless Allurement“. That proved EVOKED’s superiority over oh-so-many parvenus who make do with emulating their heroes instead of writing substantial songs. Now after threeyears of careful writing and with multiple gigs alongside underground heavy-weights such as ROOT or SULPHUR AEON under their collective belt, the trio is set to leave its first longplay mark although “Ravenous Compulsion”.

BIG MIKE COLONIA

visit BIG MIKE COLONIA on facebook Entstanden 2014 in Köln, hat sich das Zwei-Meter Powerpaket musikalisch den vergessenen Elektronik-Genres der 80er Jahre verschrieben und spielt sich mit deutsch-kölschen Texten von Synthie-Pop über Italo Disco bis hin zum belgischen New Beat Sound sowie rockigeren Tönen durch die Clubs Deutschlands – alle Studiosongs auf analogen Synths und Maschinen eingespielt, und alles stets in authentischer modischer Montur, als wäre er soeben einer Zeitkapsel aus dem Jahre 1989 entsprungen. Inhaltlich geht es um verruchte Partygeschichten und zwielichtige Figuren aus Köln, um High Energy im Allgemeinen und natürlich um Muskelsport, dem größten Hobby von Big Mike Colonia. Alle Texte haben stets einen authentischen Bezug zu persönlichen Erfahrungen aus dem Leben des Protagonisten. See BIG MIKE COLONIA live here:  Want to book a show? Get in...

EYEHATEGOD

visit EYEHATEGOD on facebook Eyehategod is an American sludge metal band from New Orleans who formed in 1988. As a band that helped create a genre as well as equate a city with a sound, EYEHATEGOD has always remained humble anytime words like “legend” were thrown around to describe them. The thing with legends is that they grow stronger in time and over the years, word of mouth has been kind to the band. EYEHATEGOD is bigger now than they ever have been in their twenty-five plus years as a band. Pretty impressive seeing as they haven’t released a full-length album in almost fifteen years. Most people who know the band have a story to tell or they heard a story about the guys. Whether it was them playing nothing but feedback to a bewildered White Zombie crowd during their opening stint for the arena metal band in the mid-nineties, being banned from a certain venue for attacking a promoter with a barstool or cleaning out entire small towns of their drug supply, these stories spread throughout the metal community over the years, usually through a game of one-up-manship, establishing them as one of the most notorious bands around.

TEN FOOT POLE

visit TEN FOOT POLE on facebook Ten Foot Pole’s history includes being hardcore band Scared Straight in California in the 1980’s, fronted by a pro baseball pitcher up to 1995 and being a well-traveled underground Epitaph style band in the 90’s. In 2016 the album Setlist summarized the band’s 90’s melodic punk identity, just in time for Escalating Quickly to move beyond those genre limitations. Known for heartfelt lyrics, often stories, put to aggressive guitar riffs and fast drums, TFP was a favorite in the soundtrack for the 1990’s skate and surf scenes. They have released eight albums combined for worldwide sales of over three hundred thousand units. Ten Foot Pole took a break from 2006 to 2013, as Dennis, the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and principal songwriter, focused on his audio career, mixing live sound for artists including Prince, Jimmy Eat World, Beck, AFI and Weird Al Yankovic.
