MindMaze are a promising band like no other. In a time when female-fronted metal is at an all-time high in popularity but also at an all-time high for copycats and imitators, MindMaze has striven hard to forge their own sound and identity. Hailing from Allentown, Pennsylvania the four-piece band are young (all aged 23-25), but have honed their craft with over one-hundred gigs spanning over 250+ miles, including sharing the stage with metal mainstays such as Saxon, Doro, Overkill, Jon Oliva's Pain, Circle II Circle, Fozzy, George Lynch, Raven, and many more.
The band's debut album Mask of Lies has been hailed by fans and critics all over the world as an outstanding piece of independent metal that is refreshing while being firmly rooted in many classic metal mainstays. With no label support, management, or outside hired promotion, the band managed to sell copies of Mask of Lies to fans in 34 of 50 United States and a total of 17 countries worldwide, selling 90% of the album's first pressing in the first 10 months of its release.
On the heels of Mask of Lies' success, the band has begun work on their sophomore effort Back from the Edge, tentatively due in September 2014, featuring artwork by MONOWASP (Seventh Wonder, Harem Scarem, Brazen Abbot, Crash Diet, many more), Symphony X bassist Mike LePond on all tracks, and guest appearances by members of Stratovarius, Pharaoh, LORD, and Draekon.
We do this to have fun, but also spread the love that Jesus has for us to everyone else out there in our area. He loves us so much, and it's a great feeling. So why not use our talents in music to help spread the gospel?!
EVERTHRONE’s journey began back in 2005 while operating under a different moniker, releasing two highly acclaimed EPs by the end of 2009. It wasn’t until the metamorphosis that resulted in EVERTHRONE being born that the band was truly firing on all cylinders. On their Jamie King-produced debut album, Evil Tongues, the group take their progressive metal sound and underscore it with a synth-driven rhythmic thrust that was so prevalent during the golden age of darkwave in the ’80s.
The marriage of forward-thinking heavy metal arrangements and synth-pop might sound a bit risky, but not only does EVERTHRONE make the unlikely stylistic combination work, they also make it all feel seamless and natural, a testament to the group’s profound talents. In an age of fly-by-night, Internet hype-driven metal acts, EVERTHRONE march to the beat of their own drummer, giving hope to those who care more about songwriting mastery than the flavor of the week.
EVERTHRONE is recommended for fans of Dream Theater, Amorphis, Tears For Fears, Symphony X, TYR and Warlord.
