BEWITCHER

visit BEWITCHER on facebook visit BEWITCHER on Bandcamp When one finds themselves at the proverbial crossroads – face to face with the Devil himself – who wouldn’t choose the left hand path? Honestly, evil is too enticing, too strong, and Hell has the best music anyway. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, heavy metal mongrels BEWITCHER made their pact with Lucifer years ago, and have been walking the dark path ever since.   Recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, California by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth), “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom” is a powerhouse, heavy-metal-rock-’n‘-roll record forged in the white hot fires of Hell. The front cover was done by Paolo Girardi (Power Trip and many more). Rock ’n‘ roll is the Devil’s music, and through “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom”, BEWITCHER invites you to join them at the crossroads, drink from the chalice of rock ’n‘ roll, then ritualistically sell your soul to the dark lord himself. M. von Bewitcher puts it best, “The Devil is always ready to make the deal…” See BEWITCHER live here: Want to book a show? Get in...

UNDEATH

visit UNDEATH on facebook Having inked a deal with Prosthetic Records, UNDEATHare preparing to unleash their unique take on old school death metal in the form of debut full length album, Lesions Of A Different Kind.Two demos released in 2019 give an indication of what’s to come -but when these ten tracks of heavy hitters reach your speakers, prepare for a whole new level of skull crushing intensity.The riff upon relentless riffs are a solid foundation for the Rochester, NY based trio to balance the hulking mass of their death metal furiosity on top of. Their collective decades of musical consumption, compositions, performances and influences have converged in this one swirling mass of horror-flecked heavy metal. By honing in on festering corners of inspiration -with everything from Phantasmto the Wheel of Time book series gettinga moment in the spotlight, the lyrical and conceptual nature of the album is as eclectic as it is engaging.

LIFE FORCE

LIFE FORCE

visit LIFE FORCE on facebook visit LIFE FORCE on Bandcamp Life Force is a straight edge hardcore band out of Texas/Oklahoma. The group was formed in 2018 with a clear focus: the mission of paying homage to the sound, aesthetic, and spirit of classic youth crew inspiration, albeit with a darker modern twist, while expressing pertinent socio-political themes and opinions through engaging lyrical content and a poignant on-stage message. This push to put message at the forefront is (or should be) a vital component of the experience that is a hardcore band. The message, in this instance, is made up of an assortment of subjects, ranging from continuous positive self-development, veganism, straight edge, radical politics, and more. The musical inspiration for the band was to create something that was clear and coherent in approach and style, building a sound that is unique and fresh while still calling back to obvious influences from the past and present. With these combined elements, Life Force strives to forge a bond between band and audience, whether that means in a live setting or otherwise, that reinforces the core idea that a scene, a city, and even the world can be changed for the better through critical thought, persistence of will, and an ongoing commitment to first embodying this positive change at a personal level.   See LIFE FORCE live here: Want to book a show?

EVOKED

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...
