The Acacia Strain
The Acacia Strain is an American deathcore band from Chicopee, Massachusetts
"Originally formed in 2006 as a grindcore band by guitarist Jeremy Carroll, Chicago's Oceano went through a revolving cast of players until settling on a new lineup and a new sound in 2007. The final lineup, consisting of Andrew Mikhail (guitar), Danny Terchin (drums), Adam Warren (vocals), and Kevin Colabuono (bass), would go on to develop the group's current sound. Pushing the limits of extreme music and influenced by Behemoth and the Acacia Strain, the band transitioned into a heavier, more technical death metal sound. This change was helped along by adopting the severely detuned "dropped A" from one of Mikhail's past bands, creating a guitar sound that was as thick and murky as Warren's anguished growls. In 2008, the band signed to Earache Records, and began a heavy touring schedule. That year also saw the departure of Carroll and Colabuono and the arrival of bassist Jason Jones. In 2009, the band released its full-length debut, Depths, on Earache Records." - AllMusicGuide
In 2003, the hardcore underground received a fresh burst of raw, scorching energy in the form of The Chariot. Under the leadership of front man Josh Scogin, the band spent two years touring under their debut album Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead, and Nothing Is Bleeding and their 2005 EP Unsung. After solidifying their lineup, The Chariot hit the recording studio again to release the full-length album The Fiancee in 2007. "The Fiancee" was well received by hardcore listeners and helped to boost The Chariot's constantly growing fan base.
Their newest full-length record, Wars and Rumors of Wars, was just released in May of 2009.
All elements of the band come together to create an aggressive presence that appeals to punk rock, hardcore, and metal fans alike. They are known for their adrenaline-fueled live performances that can only be described as pure, boundless rock and roll.
There is one thing everyone can be certain of: The Chariot will continue to be a driving force on hardcore punk scene. Current and soon-to-be fans alike have a lot to look forward to as the band's reputation continues to grow, and "Wars and Rumors of Wars" is no exception
In Fear And Faith
Epic. Can it be a genre? Fans of In Fear and Faith certainly believe so. Calling beautiful San Diego their home, In Fear and Faith is one of the most explosive and intense bands to burst onto the scene. Combining powerful guitars, dynamic keys and electronics with the perfect blend of harmonious singing and brutal screaming, In Fear and Faith is set to leave their mark on the post hardcore/screamo scene. Joining forces with Rise Records, watch for their debut full length "Your World on Fire" coming out January 6th, 2009. The album features guest vocals by Craig from Chiodos & Jeremy from A Day to Remember.
For All Those Sleeping
"Storming out of St Cloud, MN, armed with a blend of pop, hardcore and a killer live show, For All Those Sleeping is ready to give the scene a serious wake up call. Mike Champa (vocals), Jerad Pierskalla (guitar/vocals), David Volgman-Stevens (guitar) and Ethan Trekell (drums) met in high school, and formed For All Those Sleeping in 2007 after gaining London Snetsinger on bass. The band has already wowed audiences on tour throughout the Midwest, and is now ready to take their sound global, having just signed a deal with Fearless Records.
