Mushroomhead are one of the most unique and adventurous alternative metal bands working today. Known for their stunningly theatrical live show and artsy masks, this innovative band has forged new ground in the rock world and influenced many other bands to push the envelope and bring art into rock. Formed in the early-1990s in Cleveland Ohio, the band’s combination of metal, rock and atmospheric elements has struck a chord with thousands of fans worldwide. Mushroomhead is currently in the studio recording its eighth studio album.
Sunflower Dead hail from the Southern California metal/hard rock scene and are no strangers to having their brand of music draw attention. The band is a rebirth of sorts. Three-fifths of the band rise from the ashes of former nationally recognized touring acts DROID and Two Hit Creeper. They are rounded out by additional band members who have toured internationally with Buckethead, In This Moment, Avatar, and Memento. Sunflower Dead are no strangers to the commitment needed or drive required to win over fans with their own brand of hard rock.
Formed from the ashes of the highly acclaimed regional band Jackie, Cleveland, Ohio’s Unsaid Fate have retooled and refocused their energies to fully capture the attention of an active rock audience that was quickly becoming bored with the cookie cutter sounds that were being created by the most successful bands of the genre.
A Voodoo Priest “The Doctor” in his travels came across a little girl who looked lost and scared. He cursed her with a magic spell and turned her into a doll. The curse was disrupted and morphed from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for souls who are looking to join our dark world.
Death Division was formed in 2012 by veteran bassist Jerry Montano (The Deadlights, Nothingface, Danzig, Hellyeah), who has sold over two million records worldwide in his career. Co-founder of the band is lead vocalist/guitarist Sean De La Tour. Drummer Alex Rivas joined the band in 2015. Death Division recently released its new EP, Angels of the Black Dawn, Part One.
