Girl On Fire
Formed in the summer of 2007, Seattle band Girl On Fire has worked tirelessly to build a name for themselves. From playing Vans Warped Tour two years in a row, to playing with national acts such as: Saosin, Aiden, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, and Scary Kids Scaring Kids. Girl On Fire is also no stranger to the road, having booked multiple West Coast and Northwest tours over the last two years. This five-piece group collaborates to create intense and uniquely melodic rock songs spanning through a handful of genres. The band attributes much of its popularity not only to their infectious music, but also to their ability to be personable with their fans. 2009 saw Girl On Fire release an EP and record their first music video. The band spent the better part of December 2009 in the studio with producer William Francis (Aiden) working on their upcoming full-length. In the spring, Girl On Fire plans to continue writing their upcoming full-length, as well as hit the road again.
Heavy, down-tuned, southern fried, whiskey soaked sabbra cadabra. Their live show pulsates with seething and sultry, sweaty energy. Bringing as much groove as brutal thunder, the music is like a hammer straight to your soul, crashing down through the sky... only you welcome its impact the moment they tear into their first song. Spilling their guts on every stage they play; they've opened for Slipknot, Saint Vitus, Blue Cheer, Mudvayne, Fu Manchu, 3 Inches of Blood, Trouble, Zeke and Valient Thorr to name a few. Featuring the vocals of Jamie Nova, also well known for her role as lead vocalist in the all female AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles, and the monster riffs of Mischa Kianne on guitar and occasionally violin along with the low end madness of Jacy Peckham on bass and the bone-crushing heaviness of Dana Sims on drums, Witchburn is the sound of rebellion in the voice of a hate-child conceived during a mythical orgy between Black Sabbath, Janis Joplin, Ronnie James Dio and Heart.
Witchburn delivers passionate, moody southern metal, made even more powerful by the band's fierce energy and considerable musical chops. The smoky grooves are deep and heavy, tapping into a classic rock vein with gritty guitar lines, seamlessly blending vintage rock influence with that of modern metal.
Their ready-for-battle anthems, apocalyptic overtones and dirty, doom-laden riffs keep your ears glued while confirming that these are dedicated musicians with genuine love for all that is heavy. Singer Jamie Nova is also well known for her role as lead vocalist in the all female AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles, in which she portrays Bon Scott and Brian Johnson with her surprisingly expressive vocal range. Seeing what else this band is capable of becomes even more attractive when the black-dreadlocked guitarist trades her Les Paul for a violin on a song or two. Their monster riffs, powerful vocals and kick ass, shout-along choruses completely galvanize even the most skeptical listeners, sending them promptly into blissful abandon as they surrender to pumping their fists in the air.
Pouring their whole hearts into their own bluesy brand of sultry Sabbath sludge, Witchburn commands you to throw your metal horns up high!
