Channeling chaos into art, Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s Belles, and Stitched Up Heart. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live, and to eventually release her 2017 demo album, Storm.

Despite sustaining a dark and nearly melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album Storm. Following the release, underwent a complete lineup change in her band, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: Enchiridion of Nightmares (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.”
The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and is currently working on her third studio album. This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm.

Sharone’s third studio album, ‘Reflection’, is due out December 7th, 2019.



THE SIXTH CHAMBER Releases Official Music Video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste” Featuring STANTON LAVEY & MAHAFSOUN


Gothic Metal Band THE SIXTH CHAMBER has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, CA, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features STANTON LAVEY (grandson of Church of Satan founder / Satanic Bible author ANTON LAVEY, whose character featured prominently in this season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and belly dancing by MAHAFSOUN.

With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes,” says Rahne Pistor, Sixth Chamber lead vocalist and founder. “I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.” – Rahne Pistor



Behold the ancient rites of unspeakable black magic mystic horror!

Mythical Los Angeles gothic doom proto-metal mysterians The Sixth Chamber have completed a new single and music video nightmare trip – shot in the vast, tortured wastelands of Death Valley, California. Part Lovecraft and part Pasolini, the sonic and visual dream quest stars gothic metal bellydance YouTube sensation Mahafsoun as well as Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey) who aptly plays the role of a crude, heathen elder god. Directed by Constantin Werner.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic William Blake. Since that time the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic and phantasmic.

STANTON LAVEY is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.

MAHAFSOUN, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable Gothic fashion models of today.

Introducing Christina Marie Magenta

A successful model for over ten years, Christina Marie Magenta, was always interested in making music and writing songs on her laptop. She spent over two years working on her first album, and without any progress decided to hang it up.
But, after her son decided to get into music, she felt as if it would be a bad example for her to continue to quit, and picked it back up. With that motivation behind her, she finished her first album “Burn” in less than two months. Joined by guitarist George Weidner, Magenta blends an industrial rock sound with elements of blues, folk, electronica, and goth with a very unique vocalization, a ton of ambiance, and a touch of attitude.
