Undying Will, South Of Sanity, Join the Dead
875 Divisadero Street
Fresno, CA, 93721
Doors 8:00 PM / Show 9:00 PM
This event is 21 and over
Undying Will is the love child of years of dealing with pre Madonna’s, flakes and non-understanding ignorance. We have created a band out of the talent that each person has brought to the table and with that, we were able to feed off each other’s plates.
Jason (vocals) met Ben (drummer) in 2007, trying to form a band with a self-destructing guitar player. After we shot that horse in the head and moved on, we recruited Joe (bass) who played for years in L.A. and finally settled in Fresno. Knowing this band would go nowhere without a guitar player. Ben brought in Ron (guitar) who has been playing in the Central Valley for years.
With that being said, we all share the same musical interest such as Iron Maiden and Pink Floyd and many other great bands that have inspired us to do what we love to do, and that is make music.
South Of Sanity
“South of Sanity stands with those truly talented bands that avoid conforming to anything for the sake of popularity. Though the guys don't aim to sound like anyone but themselves, they have a healthy dose of popular influences that can easily be heard in the music.” Ellen E, Eldridge - Target Audience Magazine
“South Of Sanity, metal-inspired with a melodic, well-produced sound reminiscent of Alice In Chains. South Of Sanity would certainly rock a local venue. This band is pushing ahead toward greatness. ”
Ellen E, Eldridge - Target Audience Magazine
“South Of Sanity shows that dedication and practice and emotion are what makes a true musician. This band is able to take feelings and put them into words and music. South Of Sanity is a great rock band"
Ashton - KRZR 103.7 The Wild Hare
Ever heard of SLUDGE? Well, that‘s the term their fans like to throw around to define the sound and genre of South Of Sanity. This band has performed with national acts such as The Bullet Boys, Attika 7, Bang Tango and Mary Magdelan. South Of Sanity has performed at the Modesto X-Fest and even headlined the famous Whisky a go-go in Hollywood. The band has a CD available on itunes along with some new singles they worked on with Adam Rupel from Systematic who not only learned recording techniques from Lars Ulrich of Metallica but was also signed to his label.
Each member of the band is from Central California and has a vast amount of influences so, don't be surprised if their sound claws it's way into your head. With the influences of modern day metal and hard rock to heavy metal, you just don’t get enough. South Of Sanity is reminiscent of Soundgarden, Godsmack, Black Label Society, Killswitch Engage, Alice in Chains and so many other great bands. South Of Sanity is a modern Sabbath like, Black metal Rock.
We hope you will enjoy the music of South Of Sanity because they bring it to the plate and shove it in your face!
Members: Danny Damore ( singer ) Chris Erickson ( drummer ) Gemini Asonte ( bassist )
