Devoted, Committed almost Preordained. Since 2001, Kastasyde has cranked original, inventive songs from the heart integrating their raw sophisticated talent. Blending Metal and Melody, Fury with Finesse to the tune of blistering, maniacal yet always well thought out material. Their brutally crafted sound strikes a nerve with Metal fans everywhere. The obscene, uncensored energy of a live show is infectious as is evidenced by their rapidly growing fan base. While they maintain legiancy to their Metal roots, the music continues to evolve into much more than any one genre can contain. After numerous changes in the lineup over the years due mainly to a lack of commitment they now have the strongest and most dedicated lineup, and by far the most talented.

Cokegoat was founded in Chicago during the summer of 2011. A tight knit group of six members feature three riff pregnant guitars that present a strong and progressive idea of what heavy music is. Combined with three very different voices, including a strong female presence, textural synths, dark bong rattling bass lines and adrenalized drums all define Cokegoat. With equal parts heavy, progressive, and beer, 2013 saw the release of the debut album “Vessel.” Invisible Oranges stated, “there is plenty to bang your head to, but the extra elements add texture and give the band an edge.” Open minds allow Cokegoat to push the boundaries of what is considered massive music as they re-enter the studio in early 2015.
Black4 consists of former members of Guiltrip (Curt and Jason), Hungry Onion (Bryan) and the drummer of Fist-a-Gon and Bello (Brian). The group was formed in 2011. Infusing various rock styles to create an ever evolving sound.
