Crowbar
1989. That's 27 long years ago. Countless memories. Some still vivid, most just a blur. The one constant thing has been my focus and desire. The same vision I had in '89 is still burning strong in my head. Possibly stronger than ever. When you put this much blood, sweat and tears into something you can never look back. Fueled by the down-tuned sludge of the Melvins and the over-the-top aggression of Peter Steele's Carnivore, I set out to create my own beast and Crowbar was born. The band's sound was labeled Doom-Core by the European press shortly after the debut release of OBEDIENCE THRU SUFFERING. I found it to be quite fitting then and still do honestly. Crowbar have released 10 full length cd's, the second selling over 100,000 units worldwide. We threw in a live EP and a few compilations for good measure and that's where we stand today. Anyone who knows Crowbar is familiar with the numerous label and line-up changes over the years. I couldn't be more happy with the group of guys in our current lineup. In terms of musicianship, loyalty and friendship, this is our strongest lineup to date. Period.

As I am typing this, we are furiously writing a new full length for you. We will also be re-releasing most of our back catalog through eOne. I've lived a thousand life times over the course of the last 27 years, but this old dog's got a lot more than you think left in the tank!
Tombs
Tombs
Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist Mike Hill (Anodyne, Versoma) in Brooklyn, NY, Tombs blends a wide array of influences including Black Metal and dark industrial music. The band went through a number of line-up changes with Hill the only remaining original member. Former members included Domenic Seita (Storm of Light) and Carson Daniel James. The band's prior Relapse output included a self-titled EP and a split 12-inch with like-minded, Germanic darkness weavers Planks. Both records were release on Hill's now-defunct label Black Box Recordings. The band's first two Relapse releases, 2009's "Winter Hours" and 2011's "Path of Totality" both received massive reception from the press with the latter being featured prominently on many critic's year end metal lists including Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, NPR and MetalSucks. The crowning achievement was securing the 2011 album of the year for Decibel Magazine. In addition to their critically acclaimed releases, Tombs has become known for their captivating live performances and have toured extensively throughout North America and Europe with bands ranging from Isis, Pelican, Wolves in the Throne Room, The Secret and Kylesa.


"Savage Gold" the band's third album on relapse continues to Tombs' journey into the realms of extremeity. The lineup includes long-time drummer and co-writer Andrew Hernandez as well as new members bassist Ben Brand (Woe) and guitarist Garett Bussanick (Flourishing). This time around, the band has teamed up with reknowned producer Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Hate Eternal) to record the band's most extreme release to date.
Incite
Incite
Incite ignite heavy metal once more with their fourth full-length album and highly anticipated metal record for 2016 Oppression [minus HEAD Records]. Since the release of their full-length-debut The Slaughter in 2009, the Phoenix, AZ quartet has shared stages with everyone from Dillinger Escape Plan, Cancer Bats, and 36 Crazyfists to Crowbar, Soulfly, and Cavalera Conspiracy in addition to headlining countless gigs. Over the course of two more explosive offerings, All Out War [2012] and Up In Hell [2014], they’ve earned acclaim from Kerrang!, ARTISTdirect, and many others as well as “Album of the Week” honors from Revolver. Songs such as “Army of Darkness” charted Top 40 on the SiriusXM metal charts. However, 2016 sees the band evolve into a more brutal and brash beast ready to claw its way to the genre’s upper echelon one show at a time.

Singer Richie Cavalera is no stranger to quality heavy music. Immersing himself in the genre as a kid, his destiny was always the stage.In 2004, along with Zak [drums], Dis [guitar], and Luis [bass], Richie formed Incite with that in mind.

Soon after, the band destroyed venues across Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States with everyone from Dillinger Escape Plan to Soulfly, garnering rave reviews from tastemakers such as Kerrang! in the process. The group's 2009 debut, The Slaughter, left an indelible mark on the genre. Revolver called it "thrash that's hard to refuse/resist", and the single "Army of Darkness" hit #31 on the Sirius Metal Charts.

Now, they're bringing everything to a new level with their second full-length. Incite's modern musical assault and battery has been honed and sharpened. It's their time now. You've been warned.
