Based out of Athens, GA, Ashes to Omens formed in late July 2017 as a 4 piece and have influences from Breaking Benjamin, Nothing More, Audioslave, Iron Maiden and more. Not long after their formation, vocalist James Branton was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer and underwent treatment for it.

The band quickly released their debut single “The Screws”, in August of 2017 and accompanied by a music video in February 2018. After overcoming cancer, Branton added a 2nd guitarist to the band and they became a 5 piece. Their self-titled debut album hit the indie charts in June 2018 and catapulted them to the number one position for Rock on Reverbnation in Athens where they held for over a year.

Not long after the release of their debut ep, they began work on their 2nd album. The first release was “The Conflict Within”. It was featured in Georgia Music Spotlight as being “energetic, straight ahead hard rock”. Full of monolithic mid-tempo hard rock riffs, anthemic (Slash-esque) guitar solos, and gritty, commanding vocals with the ideal level of attitude and energy for the genre. As well as getting a stellar review of their most recent single, “The Conflict Within” in Rawckus Magazine.

In July-August 2018, the band opened for legendary Cinderella frontman, Tom Keifer to a sold out crowd at Innovation Amphitheater to an over-whelmingly positive response and left with the crowd on their feet. They have also shared the stage with several national acts, including REHABHallowpoint (Missouri) and Demon In Me (Cali) and Lullwater.

SOUTH OF EDEN UNLEASH DEBUT SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO, “DANCING WITH FIRE”

 Dancing With Fire Artwork JPEG

Columbus, OH based Rock band SOUTH OF EDEN (formerly BLACK COFFEE) has released their debut single and music video, “Dancing With Fire.” The song’s official music video follows the band through months on the road including the band’s first label performance (look out for a cameo by LAVA’s own Jason Flom). It includes footage from South of Eden HQ in Columbus, OH and shows the band in their natural habitat.

“We wanted this to be a personality piece, and with all of us in quarantine we knew the best way to do that was to show what we have accomplished leading up to this release. John Payne, our media man, has been following us around for the last two years! The best thing to show with raw music is raw footage.” – SOUTH OF EDEN

Player

Rip-roaring riffs abound on this incendiary and irresistible anthem. Helmed by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer GREG WELLS (ADELE,TWENTY ONE PILOTSDEFTONES], hyper-charged guitars, and thunderous percussion collide with towering falsetto as the refrain soars to the heavens and back. Emerging with a scorching sound of their own, the boys siphon grunge melody into classic rock-style virtuosity with unapologetic attitude and a whole lot of grit.

“We knew we wanted our first release to showcase our personalities, both in the music and visual. ‘Dancing With Fire’ is just that; personality. It’s a song about conflict, and to us that conflict is being a bunch of twenty-two-year-olds attempting to make it as a rock band in unprecedented times. We’re excited to see how people interpret the song into their own lives.” – SOUTH OF EDEN

“A straight-up belter of a rock song… Fast, furious and buzzing with energy” – Louder

“band bringing back classic-rock back to the forefront.”- Guitar World

“Fast, furious, and buzzing with energy, it’s the shot of classic yet cool caffeine we all need…” – Classic Rock Magazine

SoE - MAIN 2 - Vertical

We’re a band that writes, records, and plays like the pioneers of rock before us. We aren’t looking to bring anything back, but instead to remind people what rock n roll means. No rules. This music represents what we believe is real, raw music. No click tracks and triggers or copy and paste bullshit. Just a bunch of hippies in a room.”

South of Eden (formerly Black Coffee) are: Ehab Omran [lead vocals, acoustic guitar], Justin Young [lead guitar, vocals], Tom McCullough [drums], and Nick Frantianne [bass]. The Columbus, OH quartet have already performed alongside everyone from the Foo Fighters to System Of A Down, and invite you to join them on their journey of looking at rock ‘n’ roll through a modern lens.

We want to open up the doors for rock in the modern era,” exclaims Ehab. “We want to sound the way we hear rock in our heads—vintage with a sprinkle of today. We try to give listeners the feeling of discovering the genre for the first time. We think now is the moment to be a rock band.

The band has already paid their dues to reach this point. Growing up in Columbus, OH the band formed by combining their passions and uniting over their love of music. Originally from the country of Jordan, Ehab primarily listened to the Arabic music his parents would play, in addition to superstars like Michael JacksonPhil Collins, and James Brown. After coming to America, he was introduced to a wider range of music that inspired him: eighties and nineties rock including Guns N’ Roses and notably Queen. Just like Freddie Mercury’s parents, Ehab’s parents didn’t agree that a life in rock ‘n’ roll was the best thing for their son. However, as he met the rest of the band, his dream became a life affirming reality.

Ehab and Nick performed together in various bands (channeling Iron MaidenRed Hot Chili Peppers, and Alice In Chains) and eventually joined Justin and Tom who had been working on their own band (influenced by Van Halen and Black Sabbath). Justin, who was at the time attending Berklee College of Music, describes first writing with Ehab and noted “The first jam was crazy. He came over with Tom and just listened for a while. We had the riffs to songs, and he just immediately started singing. Here I had gone to music college to find people I could mesh with stylistically, only to come back home and find that my best friend and a singer that I had already known about were all I needed!

This newfound discovery lead to a fast-paced evolution. As Tom noted, “We didn’t have a bass player, bass amp or a bass! Ehab wrote most of the bass lines on guitar and we grooved so well. We were a band for like a week before we had booked our first show two weeks out. We ended up borrowing equipment and we became a band.” As they continued to tour, they crossed paths and shared bills with Puddle of MuddRed Sun Rising and recently graced the main stage of Sonic Temple and Epicenter in 2019. That very same year Jason Flom caught wind of the band and signed them to Lava Records.

When it came to recording, they honor the methods of those who come before them and “tape in a vintage way, with no click track, pitch correction, copy-paste, or any of that nonsense.”

The musicians headed to Los Angeles to record with legendary GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Greg Wells [Adele Twenty One Pilots, Deftones]. “When I first heard the band, it had its own original identity,” explains Greg. “That was something I had waited years to find. I emailed them back saying, ‘I want to be your Mutt Lang’.”

Ehab notes “It’s a mixture of a lot of things. We’re ‘classically rock’ influenced, but listen to so many different genres and eras that there are a lot of different feelings in our music.”

On the lead single Ehab describes “We knew we wanted our first release to showcase our personalities, both in the music and the visual. “‘Dancing With Fire’ is just that; personality. It’s a song about conflict, and to us that conflict is being a bunch of twenty-two-year-olds attempting to make it as a rock band in unprecedented times. We’re excited to see how people interpret the song into their own lives.”

When you hear us, I want you to walk away thinking, ‘That was honest and different’,” Ehab leaves off. “We’re just doing what we do. We’re proof you can do anything you want and shouldn’t compromise your dreams.”

The Holy Veins Promo 3

The Holy Veins is a musical movement for a generation that wants to feel something new.

Equal parts Muse and Charlie Puth, between Daft Punk and Queen, The Holy Veins joins the ranks of Maroon 5’s electric-charged early releases and Harry Styles’ vulnerable retro charm, creating exciting emotional music that embraces a new breed of rock.

Houston-native Cason Day formed The Holy Veins officially in March 2020, an amalgamation of simmering songs and lyrics steeped in years of collaborating with other local New York musicians and bands. As he began to build a stylistic library through his work on stage and in the studio, the songs became a collection of something bigger, and Lost My Mind began to take shape.

The Holy Veins defies the limits of genre and uses raw emotion to create a new sound influenced by the best music of the last 40 years. Their debut EP Lost My Mind is a journey with addiction, religion, and love or lust, explored through a lens of alternative rock, pop, and electronic funk, to create something new for a generation coming-of-age that won’t settle for less.

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

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.

HYPERDOSE SQUARE PHOTO

From the traces of the 2016 release of “Impact,” the American Active Rock Band, “HYPERDOSE” has deployed a remarkable sequel. On January 18th, 2018 Hyperdose released the New 2018 EP, entitled, DISASTER, recorded again at Crosstrax Studios in Memphis, TN with Grammy Nominated Producer Justin Rimer (12 StonesSaving AbelWaylandFull-Devil Jacket).

Disaster spawns an animated narrative engaging the listener to the deepest levels of hostility, battle & response. The outset song, “Disaster (Roll with the Punches)” vividly describes our world of defeat and digression, but only to inspire to “Roll with the Punches.” The forefront delivers heated and strong spirited vocals interwoven with shambolic and layered guitar riffs on a pillar of pillaging drums and spine-rattling bass. Each track explores its own panoramic view of emotional encounter.

“Undeniable” hits as a dynamic ballad sure to pierce the hearts and minds of music lovers. Other titles include “Phantom,” “See the Light,” and “Vile,” all of which have great hard rock experimentation and fallback on the meaning of “Hyperdose.” The Debut single entitled, “Take Control” was released April 2015 & features guest vocals from Gabe Aranda of the Modern Act Aranda. The Official Music Video for “Undeniable” is being released September 19, 2019. Adrienne Beacco (Atlanta, GA) was the videographer & editor, with live video being record by Harry Reese (Shiner, TX).

We’re supposed to know what we want to do with our lives, have a career by 22, and anything else we think society has told us we need to do to be normal. Just be yourself. Live your own life. Don’t let someone else’s fears or your own fears hold you back. ‘You build your own cage. You carve your own jail…. You get one time around, you’ve got to understand, you build your own prison…gotta live while you can.’” – DAVE GRAY

Player

“this is straight and pure old school rock n’ roll at its best, from a group that comes from the rural environments of motorcycle rallies, rod runs, and all-night keggers. The roots of Strong Like Bull’s sound extends back to the early 1970s when rock was something your parents hated and, if you’re old enough, you would have been defying their every instruction and pumping your fist in your air, either in your room or out at a gig.” – Christopher Gonda – PureGrainAudio

AMORIELLO Release Lyric Video for Debut Single, “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice),” Off of Upcoming, Self-Titled Album

Amoriello - Digitial Artwork 1600x1600

Neo-Classical Hard Rock Project AMORIELLO–launched by renown guitarist, educator, and author Tom Amoriello and featuring former members of Black Sabbath, Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, TNT, Loudness, Dokken, Impellitteri, and Cacophony–has released a lyric video for “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice),” the debut single off of their upcoming self-titled LP. A tribute to metal legand Ronnie James Dio, “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice)” includes a thunderous drum solo for 16 bars by the former Sabbath/Dio drummer with an emotional vocal delivery from Nick Z Marino from the current Malmsteen lineup. Impelliterri bassist James Amelio Pulli and ex-Yngwie keysman Michael Troy also contribute their substantial talents to the track.

Player

“The entire AMORIELLO album is emotional, and ‘Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice)’ is one that takes on the unending conflict between two sides: aggression versus calm, combativeness versus compromise. The music is taut and stormy, then somber and solemn.

The whole album is a testament to the metal legends who inspired me, written with world class musicianship from those same icons. I dedicated this track to Ronnie James Dio (I attended his last concert in Atlantic City, NJ) and wanted someone who had been a part of his sound, hence Vinny Apice. In the course of of recording, showcasing his unique style, he let loose for 16 bars in that incredible solo, and all of the ambitions were met.”

ToTheMonsters Album Cover

 

Phoenix, AZ based, Dark Alternative Rock Band THE SPIDER HOLE has announced the launch of a Kickstarter Campaign to help support their upcoming LP and associated graphic novel, To The Monsters. The unique project is built around the LP with 11 original songs, each about a different monster, as well as a 100 page horror anthology graphic novel written and illustrated by vocalist Ethan Scott; each story in the novel is about a different band member over the course of one fateful Halloween night.

To celebrate the upcoming launch, the quartet has revealed their first single, “The Skeleton Wedding,” from the album

“We were at The Quarry in Bisbee grubbing and waiting to go on stage when Ethan asks everyone in the band what their greatest fear is. He wants to do a horror anthology comic to put out with the new album. Before we were even called to the stage, all four stories were basically written.” – The Spider Hole

ToTheMonsters Comic

Two versions of the graphic novel will be offered through the Kickstarter, the standard softcover edition, and a DELUXE hardcover edition, which includes 4 additional stories. The hardcover edition is only available to Kickstarter backers.

TheSpiderHole square

A quartet with frequent guest musicians, The Spider Hole performs songs meant to stir brains and rattle bones. Based in sun-scorched Phoenix, AZ, the band started banging sounds together in the late nineties, and has steadily developed an aural stew that is partly rock, partly cabaret, partly blues, and partly goth. Influences include Tom Waits, Oingo Boingo, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Primus, The Pixies, Frank Zappa, The Doors, and your face when you taste something unexpected. New music is being prepped for a new full-length album called To the Monsters, due near the end of 2018.
