Skinlab
Skinlab
Skinlab is an alternative metal band formed in Oakland in September 1995 by bassist/vocalist Steev Esquivel and guitarist Mike Roberts; the group also includes guitarist Gary Wendt and drummer Paul Hopkins. The intense, ultra-heavy riffing showcased on their demo tapes got them a contract with Century Media, which issued their debut album, Bound, Gagged and Blindfolded, in 1997. However, both guitarists left the group in the wake of the heavy touring that followed; ex-Skrew guitarist Snake and ex-Killing Culture and Laaz Rockit guitarist Scott Sargeant were eventually brought in as replacements. This lineup recorded the 1998 Eyesore EP to tide fans over; the full-length Disembody: The New Flesh appeared in 1999. Sergeant left the group shortly before they decided to step back into the studio, but Glen Telford was quickly plugged into his spot. Hooking together with producer Steve Evetts, the band recorded Revolting Room and released it in the summer of 2002. After touring with Metal Heavyweights Slayer in 2003, the band went on a 3 year hiatus. Skinlab has recently reformed, and is currently preparing to unleash a BAY AREA BEATDOWN in 2007!!!
Pissing Razors
Pissing Razors
Many of you as friends and colleagues know the details and real inside story our journey as PISSING RAZORS along with the many highs and lows we experienced along the way to bring our brand of music to fruition. Without the support from family and friends(some we've lost along the way to different paths and some we've lost back to the earth) we would have never been here. You always hear people say that but I sincerely mean it. Our journey has been a necessary one. One that proves with perseverance anything is possible. Four guys along with an amazing crew(Ben 'Benya' Allen Vallejo, Cesar 'The Duck' Polanco, Cesar 'Achmex' Soto, Rachel Martinez, Shannon Brady) from El Paso, Texas of all places gave everything they had to chase a dream. A place that when many speak of, yields a lot of negative but we definitely pulled some positive out of this city to say hard work can pay off and this is 'Where We Come From'. As our brother Cesar Soto stated, we have starved together many times for the love of music: both in the sacrifices we've made in our time away from family and loved ones as well as the many times we've gone without eating to get that extra gallon of gas to make the next show. I'm proud to say we will now look toward the future and leave the past where it belongs-- in our string of wonderful, sad, extremely funny and overwhelmingly shining moments and memories we've shared together. 2015 will hopefully see Eddy Garcia, Joe Rodriguez and myself(Mat Lynch) bring our supporters one of the best, heaviest and grooviest releases we can dig down deep for. It's long overdue I would say and we owe it to the people who have made our story possible…. PISSING RAZORS 2015
Shattered Sun
Shattered Sun
Shattered Sun is a metalcore band from the small town of Alice Texas, Reformed in 2011, Their style is heavy/thrash metal with incredible guitar riffs, vocal distortions and that magnetic raw appeal that allows them to create that maximum effect with every song, every time. They can sound brutal at times, but yet they have their melodic side to them. This can only be accomplished through talent and intelligence. They know what their audience wants to hear and they give it to them 100%.. They have the right lineup to deliver the brutal, yet melodic music that sets us apart from other bands. They take their live shows to another level by bringing enormous amounts of force and energy to any and every stage they perform on.
Aghori
Aghori
The Aghori's strongly believe that there are no opposites in this world and that the conventional distinctions between purity and impurity are actually an illusion. They celebrate inner peace and tranquility through dark rituals. Considered "Outcasts" by society, this Indian tribe lives on cremation grounds, smearing themselves with the ashes of corpses and eating from a cranial begging bowl. The purpose of embracing pollution in these practices is realization of non-duality through transcending social taboos and seeing the illusory nature of all conventional categories.

Formally known as "Heinous" the two founding members of Aghori are vocalist, Dustin Keimig and drummer Seth Roscamp , who started the band in 2000 while still in high school. With the addition of guitarists Jason Smith and Thomas Page and bassist Michael Alarid, their collective sound grew heavier, and they decided to change their name to enhance their aggressive sonance. "Aghori" seemed to suit their lurid sound perfectly.

Aghori is driven by their anger infused melodic thrash metal. Sighting influences from Lamb of God and Ill Nino to Black Sabbath, the band has taken on the monumental challenge of combining all of these elements and has successfully turned it into their own brand of thick, dark and coagulated hard rock.

In the modern musical world of artificial happiness, there isn't much room for people who prefer the dark sounds of heavy metal. Aghori recognizes that metal is known for its diehard fans, and that's just who the band attracts. Their brutal onstage presence entices fans from all walks of life and backgrounds.

Aghori's music offers them a chance to vent the frustration that brews from feeling alone and insignificant. "It's basically about not being afraid to be an outsider," says Vocalist Dustin Keimig. "It's about refusing to follow life's prescriptions."
