Born from the Colorado metal scene, rarely does a band this versatile and powerful come about, with goals of dominating audiences and searing their blazing sound into the minds of those listening. By way of a thunderous approach, Fist Fight is a combination of numerous musical philosophies and styles which comes at you from every possible angle. Utilizing raw, yet polished techniques at the same time, they fold in a unique blend of technical ability, hardcore, grove and traditional metal riffs accompanied by punkish tones, and a level of unforeseen forceful aggression that commands notice by pounding onlookers' teeth down their throats with a take no prisoners attitude.
The initial foundation of Fist Fight was laid in December 2010 when guitarists Jon Maggard and Nich Rich began to build the band from the ground up. Bassist Adrian Montoya joined the duo in March 2011, and after trying out several drummers and
vocalists, drummer Chris Day and frontman Dustin Holmer solidified the monster collection of talent to create Fist Fight.
With decades of collective experience in the music industry, the members of Fist Fight come from an impressive resume of bands, of which a partial list includes Less Than Under, Chromax, Control Element, Guilty Of Aggression, Skapegoat and Ceverence. Their members have also performed alongside well-known bands such as Hed PE, Snot, Motograter, Hemlock, LA Guns, White Lion and Chimera, to name just a few. Through hard work and natural talent, Fist Fight is poised to set the metal world on fire with an explosive sound that, prior to the band's inception, was unheard of.
Fist Fight uses Shure Microphones, Gibson, Jackson, Epiphone and BC Rich Guitars, four and five-string Schecter Basses, Dunlop Sharp Picks, POD Pros, Mesa Boogie Amps, Peavey/Carvin Cabs, Eminence Speakers, SWR Workingman and Peavey Heads, Monster Cables, Pearl Export Series Drums, Ziljian Cymbals, Pearl Hardware, Pedalstand Evans/Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth 5b Sticks.
Don't allow yourself to be caught off guard; the era of the mighty Fist Fight has just begun.
Colorado-based Iconocaust released their 4th D.I.Y. CD in June 2012, produced by Ahrue Luster (Ill Nino/Machine Head). The EP is a guitar-heavy, thrashy, shredfest full of tasty hooks, rich melody and energy. They released their 3rd self-produced album, JUDAS COMPLEX, in early 2010 with the help of producer Ahrue Luster. This album brought forth a new twist to their unique blend of metal, intro
ducing their new guitarist Brian Davis. Now with a true twin guitar assault, they could write the sort of music that press had deemed "Orchestrated Brutality".
The band is currently working on more new tunes, and is touring the U.S. between sessions in the studio
Who If Not Us
Before they were known as "Who If Not Us", Danny and Darin sought after other musicians with accentuating styles with a level of passion that rivaled their own. Danny injects brutal, decimating riffs. Gabe recently joined our ranks with his energetic, off timed jazzy melodies that has pushed us all into another realm of metal. Micky lays down his own deep, chest pounding, Cliff Burton-esque stylings that deliver Darin's hard hitting, no nonsense drumming into a level of pure insanity. Justin's vocals are well thought out and defined to bring the aggression and depth that continues the whirlwind sound that is "Who If Not Us".

Inoculate (stylized inoculate) is a 5 piece Alternative Metal band from Denver, Colorado.
The bands heritage is rooted in 1998, when at 13 years old, Guitarist Michael DiazSantiago and Percussionist Patrik Vormittag began playing together. The nucleus formed would strengthen over a decade later when Guitarist Nikko Gallardo joined an unnamed musical project in the fall of 2009. Obscure intervention would bring Bassist Paul Gerhardstein into the fold and by spring of 2010, the nameless group would become known as inoculate. The nucleus was strong, but incomplete. The final piece came in the fall of 2013 when Vocalist Scott Beckman joined the group. The sedation period was over and a new awakening had begun.
We are a nucleus of humbled musicians, stronger together than apart and dedicated to our craft. Our name is a suggestion to our beliefs; Music is an infectious medium and contains the power to persuade and elevate your being. Are you ready to be inoculated?
