Rhythmic, Groove, Technical, Brutal, Captivating, Face Melting are all adjectives that do not even come close to touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to describing the sound, image and movement exploding right now out of Southern California. The source of this decibel shattering, mind-numbing, captivating phenomenon? Los Angeles metal outfit, VOLUMES.
VOLUMES are a collection of five young musicians coming from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz, classical, post-rock to rap and of course metal. VOLUMES eclectic tastes blend together to forge a creative bond between several types of genres that are worlds apart. The combination of their efforts results in fusions between intricate patterns, melodies, and progressive.. yet-not-to-be-overlooked-aggressive, straight to the point, metal. This particular blend of musical styles strives to find a balance between chaos and tranquility. Standing out in their genre is the fact that VOLUMES have two lead-vocalists who utilize their different ranges to create a layered, charismatic volatile sound which leave all listeners begging for more.
Having just signed on with MEDIASKARE RECORDS & OUTERLOOP MANAGEMENT, VOLUMES quickly released their unforgettable fan favorite EP titled: 'The Concept Of Dreaming'. Wasting no time, VOLUMES immediately begin work on their currently entitled debut full length "VIA" that hit #1 on iTunes Metal the first day. With their whole career starting to unfold, and the world ahead of them VOLUMES are not a band you want to overlook.. be forewarned.
No Bragging Rights
No Bragging Rights began to take its present shape in the summer of 2005. Since then, the 5 piece Metalcore band has self released 2 CD's (an EP and a full Length) which have collectively sold 8k+ copies World Wide.
When NBR began work on their first self released full length album, "Because You Believe…" the band was at a crossroads. Member changes and new ideas took them in a heavier, more hardcore oriented direction. The early 2006 release was well received in the local scene, and helped establish the band outside of their home town.
"The Anatomy of a Martyr" EP released in the summer of 2007, and catapulted NBR to the national stage. Relentless DIY touring grew the band exponentially and attracted the attention of Pure Noise Entertainment. The label re-released "The Anatomy of a Martyr" in 2008, and in the spring of 2009 debuted "The Consequence of Dreams" LP.
