This event is all ages
Inspired by the epic fantasy of Michael Moorcock and savage, pre-Christian war sagas comes ETERNAL CHAMPION, an epic heavy metal band forged in the siege-fires of Austin, Texas, featuring members of Iron Age and Graven Rite, Power Trip, Cruxiter and Hammerwhore and others, and carrying on in the heroic tradition of Manilla Road, Warlord, Omen, Brocas Helm, Cirith Ungol, Metal Church, Griffin, Liege Lord, etc.
Founded on the principles of unwavering epic doom metal, CRYPT SERMON exists to drive out the current trends choking the scene.
Formed in 2015 by New York heavy music veterans Erica Stoltz (ex-Lost Goat, ex-Amber Asylum), Jeremy Sosville (also of Black Anvil), and Nathan Honor (ex-Vermefug), Sanhedrin’s sound is familiar but not derivative. A band rooted in classic heavy metal and hard rock, but unafraid to cross genre boundaries. Lyrically, Sanhedrin often forgoes the traditional fantasy-based themes found in much heavy metal in favor of more real-life themes of inner struggle and social commentary.
2015 saw the release of their cassette demo, followed by several shows in 2016. Sharing bills with Acid King, Satan ,Magic Circle, Khemmis, and many others, Sanhedrin have always held their own with tight, high-intensity performances. Sanhedrin is currently putting the final touches on their debut full-length album. Tracked and mixed at Menegroth Studios in Queens, NY by renowned engineer Colin Marston, this LP is a collection of 8 songs spanning a wide array of emotions and sounds.
Plague Dogs provide an invaluable service in light of the passing of Lemmy and the lapsing of Inepsy.
Plague Dogs play d-beat crust with strong speedmetal tendencies and an even more sparkly pronounced love of NWOBHM.
If a mutant hybrid of Inepsy, Amebix, and Tank appeals but you want it done fresh with an eye not toward reclaiming 80's glory but making that glory relevant now, Plague Dogs are for you.
