“‘Cross’ is about giving your everything to one person but they can never see the harm they return back to you. You keep giving your best and sometimes, it’s hard to walk away when you believe the person will change. It’s almost the definition of insanity. You keep repeating the same mistake over and over expecting a different result. It never happens.” – C.C. STORM

“(Passionately Angry) is one of those releases where I came in having no idea what to expect; This is a powerful, personal project that manages to wow despite its brevity. The musical direction is scattershot and it is difficult to tell what the focus here was, but when the songs are all this good, no one is going to care about that” – Taylor Carlson – ZRockr Magazine

Las Vegas transplant, C.C. Storm, launches his debut solo effort, Passionately Angry from local label, Psycho Records.

Storm hails from his native Pocono Mountains, and moved to Las Vegas in 2010. Storm has been playing since 1982 and studied at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. He has been long sought after in various bands due to his knowledge of being able to play intricate parts and being able to sing at the same time. Storm cites KISS as his biggest influence musically but even he says his styles vary.

After taking a long break in the 90’s and in the early 2000’s, Storm returned to his passion when he decided to move to Las Vegas in 2010. After a rough start and a marriage separation, Storm returned to the stage on a fluke one night after being invited to “KISS KARAOKE” at the world famous Monster Mini-Golf featuring KISS. Stepping up to the microphone with his bass in hand, Storm belted out many KISS Classics which garnered the attention of musicians like Armored Saints’ Jeff Duncan and Sunset Strip legend Johnny Lust. Singing Paul Stanley is not an easy task, but after years of studying the Starchild, C.C. nailed it.

Deciding for himself using his real first name wasn’t going to cut it, he decided to change his name to C.C., where he then began to work on his first solo album at his long time friend owned Chase Music Studio. Studio owner, Dave Chase, began to hone and shape his sound delivering what was a sudden shock to the local musician scene. Within a few weeks of its initial release, “Cross” was gaining attention amongst the local rock radio scene. Former Faster Pussycat guitarist, Brent Muscat, was spinning it on his radio show regularly.

C.C. is currently recording the follow up to “Passionately Angry” which will be titled, “Rise The Horizon”, which will be released by mid 2021.

Visualizer

I think that “Falling” is me finding myself as an artist, and you can hear the evolution of my songwriting. I actually broke down into tears while recording the vocals for this track, which was a first for me, and that’s when I knew this song was special. I love the fact that I got to bring so many different influences into this song. It’s a great reference for what’s to come with my official debut album later this year.” – KYLE PFEIFFER

MESSER Releases 23 Track Remix Album for “Simple Man,”‘RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX’!

YOUTUBE Reduced

Heavy, Alternative rock band MESSER has announced the release of RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX. Originally launched by the band’s producer, Chad Gendason of Maddpants Records with popular music-production site Splice.com as a remix contest, fans inundated the band and site with hundreds of submissions, leading to a mammoth, 23 track collection of rei-maginings of the band’s 2019 released single, “Simple Man,” to showcase the talent of these diverse up-and-coming producers. Gendason worked closely on the final arranging and mixing, and the extraordinary results take the song in wildly different emotional and musical directions.

Visualizer

“‘Simple man’ is a song written from the perspective of someone who is removing themselves from the drama or superficial aspects and expectations of social media/society.

Resolved in the strength it takes to be alone and move themselves forward. It’s a narrative on how this person wants to find their own power and focus on clarity of self. “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” is the mantra and highlights the strength it takes to step away from the shallow world into something more meaningful for themselves. #Go” – MESSER

Maddox Messer – Bass/ Vocals

MESSER means “knife” in German, and the Dallas, Texas band has lived up to its name since cutting an inescapable swath into the rock world with their debut single, “Make This Life.” The band’s cutting edge modern rock sound was born through serendipitous connections in the thriving Deep Ellum music scene of Dallas, an area that has given rise to iconic Hard Rock and Metal bands like PanteraDrowning PoolHell Yeah, and King’s X.

Messer continued their momentum from their breakout year with the release of “Simple Man”, the 3rd single and video from their self-titled debut album, which bowed at #3 on the Soundscan New Artist chart and was named “New and Noteworthy” at iTunes and Amazon Music. The Dallas, Texas based band had a banner year in 2018 with first single “Make This Life” reaching #25 on the Active Rock radio charts, and second single “Save Myself” also made it into the Top 30 – the only truly independent act to do so.

“Simple Man” peaked at #23 on the Active Rock charts, and is the highest charting single for the band to date. It garnered attention throughout the rock world with spots on key Hard Rock playlists on SpotifyApple MusicAmazon MusicPandora RadioGoogle Play MusicYoutube, and Slacker Radio. The band has received accolades from LoudwireAXSAlternative PressRevolverNew NoisePure Grain Audio, and more. All 3 singles were also featured on iHeartradio’s “Artist You Should Know” with adds on Sirius/XM OctaneMusic Choice, and over 70 rock radio stations throughout the United States, resulting in 30,000 spins at rock radio, 15 million combined audience, and 10 million worldwide streams.

The band has since grown their fan base locally, quickly branching out regionally and nationally, opening for notable bands such as Sick PuppiesCandleboxHinderVince NeilBlack Stone CherryLynch MobDrowning PoolLocal HTraptMetallicaDokkenScott Stapp Of CreedAvenged Sevenfold, and Buckcherry, including a 40-city sold out tour with RED and Lacey Sturm. The band was even personally invited by Kevin Lyman to play the Texas leg of the final Vans Warped Tour.

It was on one of these tours that the band caught the attention of Los Angeles based writer/producer, Chad Gendason. The band felt an immediate comeradery with Chad and a lasting bond was made. Messer started writing with Chad, and their first collaboration became “Simple Man”. Fan favorite “Whiskey” soon followed and the songs started to flow into what would eventually become their self-titled debut album, Messer, which released on 4/20/18 on Maddpants Records. The album was mixed by Ben Grosse (Marilyn MansonBreaking BenjaminDisturbed) and mastered by Tom Baker (Papa RoachDavid BowieMotley Crue).

Dereak knew he wanted to pursue singing as a career while in High School in Iowa and started honing his chops with local bands. After high school he moved to Dallas to pursue his music career professionally. His first contact was with Dallas native Javier, who was making a name for himself playing in Jagermeister sponsored bands Mudflap and Pimpadelic. The two bonded at a show and became the genesis of Messer. While looking for a place to get his hair cut, Dereak walked into Maddox’s Hair salon on a whim. The two struck up a conversation about music and another connection was made. Kenny was traveling from his home in Canada to an audition in Phoenix when his car broke down in Dallas. He ended up staying in town and found success playing with the band Strangleweed, who made an appearance on the nationally televised Courtroom show “Eye for an Eye”. That caught the attention of the members of Messer, and Kenny became part of the family. Donnie was playing in various Dallas bands and gaining attention as an award-winning Tattoo artist. Maddox would play Donnie tracks the band was working on and in turn, Donnie would play music he was recording at his own home studio. As Messer continued to develop as a band, they knew they wanted to add an additional guitar player, and they all agreed that Donnie was a great fit. The lineup for Messer was solidified.

In 2019, Messer, with producer Chad Gendason, teamed with Splice.com on a remix contest for their most recent single, “Single Man,” which ultimately led to hundreds of submissions branching all corners of the electronic genre. Due to the overwhelming response, the band and Gendason collected the top 23 remixes to package into a powerhouse remix album, RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX, which is set to release via Maddpants Records on April 10, 2020.

MESSER is a band that is building a brand of new rock that blurs the line between nostalgia and modern art, leaving the listener with a sound that is not only familiar but also NEW and ADDICTIVE.

Hellbound Hearts was started in Yorkshire in 2011 by singer / bassist Danny and after the usual and numerous ep’s, line up changes and growing pains of any new band, Hellbound Hearts truly found their sound and hit their stride with the acclaimed 2016 debut album Film Noir mixing pop rock sensibilities with dark lyrical content and gothic metal tinged guitars.

Danny, drummer Lee and guitarists Craig and Nathan have taken this ethos even further, crafting a melodic, modern, dark and unique sound for their upcoming 2019 ep release.

While being one of only a few bands around who can actually claim they sound like no one else, comparisons can be drawn to the likes of NirvanaTherapyFoo FightersType O Negative, and Paradise Lost, among others.
