The members of Glyphic see their music as a symbolic method of communication; as a means of expressing ideas and/or emotions. As such, the name Glyphic is perfectly fitting for this Denver based hard rock quartet.
Founded in 2005 after a chance meeting between singer Ryan and bassist Shawn, Glyphic has generated a significant following in Colorado and beyond over the past several years, opening for such national acts as Trapt, Egypt Central and Onesidezero. The band has gone through several lineup changes over the years, finally settling on Eli as a lead guitarist and Ken on drums.
In the sea of incoherent metal and whiny pop-punk that is out there in music today, Glyphic stands out of the indie scene with a solid balance of aggressive riffs, melodic quality and introspective lyrics and a sound that is often compared to Chevelle or Breaking Benjamin. This is hard rock at its best, with songwriting that possesses enough of an aggressive edge to please metal fans while still maintaining broader appeal.
The band's debut LP, "Everything Eventual", features some of the best tracks to be found in independent rock today, including "Of Dark and Quiet" which is currently in the top 40 tracks of the alternative chart on songvault.fm. Six tracks from the 12-song LP can be heard on glyphicmusic.com or myspace.com/glyphicmusic.
With regional touring in support of "Everything Eventual" currently in the works, and plans for a sophomore effort within the next year, it's clear that this band is well on their way to following in the footsteps of the numerous other artists to come out of Denver and hit the national scene.
Seris - a Denver-based math-metal quartet with ambitions far exceeding the Denver local.
Drummer Robert Jepsen (ex-Downtied) first teamed-up with guitarist Scott Beckman (ex-Saoshyant), and began formulating the musical concepts of an odd-time and rhythm-based project in early 2009. Bassist Cody Goodman, then-bassist of Congress of the Crow, joined the two as a dynamic addition to the initial incarnation, and the trio spent several months fine-tuning their sound while patiently awaiting the perfect front man. That "front man", to the trio's surprise, came in the form of a charismatic and versatile front woman. Vocalist Melati Olivia, known in the local scene for her performances with Choke the Word, became the last piece to the puzzle, and the voice to bridge the gap between an uncompromising, poly-metric brutality and a beautiful-yet-powerful accessibility. The result of this combination is a modern style of metal whose musicality and technicality blend seamlessly into a focused and emotionally-provocative sound. Avid lovers of Tool, Meshuggah and early Mudvayne alike have a new band to which they can pledge their unwavering allegiance.
Ambitious right out of the gate - recording their first demo at Colorado's most premiere recording studio, the Blasting Room (Rise Against, The Flobots, and Tickle Me Pink) and coupled with playing their first shows at Denver's elite theaters, Seris will no doubt garner positive local attention, and will use Denver as a jumping board to the national level.
Stay tuned. They're gonna be big!
Rock, Alt, Progressive.

Flood of Souls
Flood of Souls is the HARDEST Colorado Country Band West of the Kansas boarder!! Combining all the best parts of your favorite bands and rolling them up into one Gigantic wave of sound that will FLOOD YOUR SOUL with overwhelming excitement. Flood of Souls has their own distinctive sound. When asked to describe who they sound like, many are left with a blank look on their face. You will either love them or you will hate them. Because, "it is what it is".
In the Spring of 2013 a new band formed combining the vocal styles of front man Shawn Hoyt with the musical technicality and genius of Adrew Scott (Drums), Eric Schaudies (Guitar) and Jim Sandretto (Bass). The new foursome discovered quickly that their chemistry was solid and a brand new sound formed to make CONCRETE EFFECT. Combining years of experience this is a high powered, diverse rock show that will capture the imagination of many listeners. Thank you and Enjoy!
