In 2013 Doug Walker (The Hookers, Nixon) started writing material for a new project. The idea was to be a metal project with heavy reference to the mid 70's early 80s era of metal. He started corresponding with Aaron Howell (MF Ruckus, White Fudge) and they began work on recording the material in the summer. In November Doug recruited local musicians Ben Pincock (Generator, GFI), Jono Lanasa (Zombie Cartel, Prevailer). 2014 marked the inaugural year of shows.

After a few short tours, Jono left the band to focus on his project The Dirty Work and Jared Bliss formerly of the Nite Crawlers took over second guitar duty. Monolith was approached by Funeral Noise records and signed into a 2 record contract. The first full length, Against the Wall of Forever was released on CD in February of 2015. Vinyl is slated to be released sometime in 2016.

During 2015, Gordo left the band and was replaced by Tadeus Kutcher. After a very slow year, it was decided to change frontmen. Aaron Howell left the band to focus on his band MF Ruckus, and Keith Mcintosh took over on vocal duties.

Monoliths mission is to play what they like to call "Pure Metal", overdriven guitars, soaring vocals, facemelting solos, and lower production value than most current metal acts in order to keep the feel of the early days of metal.

Monolith has released a split 7" with Voyage of Slaves on Little Heart Records, as well as a self released cassette E.P.

"If you want metal that should be played at a party while people have bottle rocket fights, and drink shitty domestic beers, this is it. And that's a good thing." - Syd Bishop of

Heavy Justice
Born in 2000, Heavy Justice re-emerged in 2010 to give Heavy Metal its own re-birth. Heavy Justice is a throw back to a smash mouth style of Metal, bringing heavy music back to its prominence with their own brand of beastly power, hook melodies, and exciting live shows. Musical precision plus the need for a change in our genre have made Heavy Justice the PHOENIX of Heavy Metal. The End is Here as the past comes raging back to haunt you, first with their full length studio album Apocalyze in 2013 and again with their second full length studio album And So We Fall... releasing May 12, 2017.
SIVA is a metal band from Orange County, CA. We make metal. With our tools. That is all.
