BLOOD STANDS STILL, Murder Death Kill, Maya Over Eyes, Smash Your Enemies


Murder Death Kill

MurderDeathKill was spawned in the high desert of Victorville, California in late 2008 when some of the founding members of the heavyweight hardcore heroes "Blood Stands Still" decided to start a new project with the mission to be heavier, and more controversial than anything that the world had ever seen.

Hardcore Veteran "Pitbull" Dan Banura quickly recruited his brother/former band mate Art Banura to play drums. Now, with this brutal backbone in place, MDK enlisted their long time friends Aaron, and Sean Bennet to head up vocals. Once the lineup was solidified, MDK wrote and recorded a demo and started jumping on shows with bands such as Suicide Silence, The Acacia Strain, and Impending Doom. Their collective goal was to write music that was extremely heavy and in your face without going too far in the metal direction. The dueling vocals, pummeling riffs, and precise rhythms as well as their insane live shows are what set this band far apart from anything else in the genre. In just a short time after the band's inception, they already had dozens of high profile shows under their belts.

The band's busy show schedule combined with their reputation for delivering one of the heaviest, most intense live shows around quickly gained them attention, and respect. In early 2009, MDK signed with hardcore super label "Mediaskare Records," and immediately began working on their full-length debut entitled "Fuck With Us And Find Out," due out this October.

MurderDeathKill has already completed tours with Life Ruiner, Betrayal, American Me, Endwell, and Suffokate. The band plans to continue touring nonstop on their forthcoming album, and push the limits as they deliver their relentless brand of heavyweight hardcore. If you have yet to experience one of MDK's infamous live shows, do yourself a favor and check them out.

Maya Over Eyes

Maya Over Eyes began in the summer of 2004 in San Jose CA. In no time at all they began sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in Hardcore, establishing themselves as a prominent figure in the local scene.
Their first recording came as a demo in 2006. Soon after they finished their first demo, the band began to venture out on the road, including a western US tour in 2007 and a northwestern US tour in 2009.

In the summer of 2009 they released their first album called "Things Get Worse Before they Get Better." This 8 song EP was a self released effort available on vinyl, digital download, and on CD.

Like many bands, Maya Over Eyes has had its fair share of line-up changes. Since originally forming as a 6 piece with two vocalists, to doing a tour as a three piece, the band has managed to persevere. First originating from one city, they now have members from all over the SF Bay area.

Soon after the release of their first record, Maya Over Eyes took a short moment to solidify a fresh new line-up change in late 2009. The band is now dedicated to pushing themselves forward as much as possible, with nothing holding them back.
