Death Ray Vision
Current members of Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall and ex members of Overcast and Cannae have combined forces in the new project DEATH RAY VISION. These veterans of the Boston metal scene play a raw brand of metallic hardcore that recaptures the energy of their old school hardcore roots infused with all they have learned and experienced as musicians over the past decade. The songs are short blasts of energy and intensity built on thrash metal rhythms and chugging guitar riffs. DEATH RAY VISION recalls the insanity of the old hardcore days while remaining focused on destroying the future.
New York is known as a sacred institution for heavy music. Shaped by ideals surrounding everyday life's trials and tribulations with an honest desperation and urgency, metal and hardcore have been as much about attitude as about the music. Ushering in a new age of crossover, paved by acts such as Anthrax, Agnostic Front and other New York vets, you can now add Sworn Enemy to the list of bands forming a caustic hybridization of thrashy, intense metal with the thud, and grit of hardcore.
Formed in Queens, NY in late 1997, it didn't take long for the music world to take notice of Sworn Enemy's crushing sound and delivery. While the hardcore underground boiled with excitement over the band, Sworn Enemy recorded their debut EP, Negative Outlook, for Stillborn Records, the label of Jamie Jasta (Hatebreed), in 2001. With overwhelming positive reactions from fans and critics alike, the EP pushed Sworn Enemy to the frontlines of proud New York Hardcore/metal acts. During this time, the band acquired the bass skills of Mike Couls of Detriot hardcore band Cold As Life, sharpening the band's impact into the most hardworking and intense band around. With this incarnation of Sworn Enemy, they toured relentlessly with acts such as God Forbid, Hatebreed, Unearth, D.R.I., American Nightmare and many more.
As the band's popularity grew, they signed to Elektra Records in early 2003 and released their debut full-length, As Real As It Gets; a lesson in brutal metal/hardcore crossover. The band earned a coveted spot on Ozzfest 2003, and continued to tour in support of the record. Parting ways with Elektra, but undeterred in their quest for delivering no frills, metallic hardcore, the band re-solidified their line-up with Jamin Hunt on bass to replace Mike Couls (who went on to join Agents Of Man). Now more dedicated than ever, the band have signed to Abacus Recordings and are prepared to drop their sophomore record, The Beginning Of The End, like a battering ram of violence.
Produced by Tim Lambesis (frontman for As I Lay Dying), engineered Steve Russell and mixed by Zeus (The Red Chord, Shadows Fall), The Beginning Of The End pulverizes even the most calloused listener. Recorded at Big Fish studios in San Diego, CA, during June 2005, the new record takes the hostility and conviction of the band to a new level of destruction.
The band's mission is simple, "To set the tone for the new age of metal," says vocalist/frontman Sal Enemy. "This record signifies a new chapter for us as a band, a new style of music." Revolving around topics of Politics, religion and everyday life, the new album showcases the band in their element, delivering heavy-hitting music with themes anyone can relate to. Forget what you know about Sworn Enemy, they're pushing their personal metallic assault way into the red without any care or regard to the current metalcore scene. "We don't follow any trends. We do it from the heart."
By bringing the old into the 21st Century, and keeping the new grounded to its roots, ACARO achieves the Brutal/Melodic blend that can stir emotions and hit you over the head with a sledgehammer at the same time.
These individuals are brought together by the love of Metal, the drive to create, the desire to succeed, and the need to bring ACARO's music and energy to as many people, in as many places as possible.
Nothing comes without hard work and no one will work harder. ACARO is not just a band, it is a way of life for all involved and all it touches. They are ACARO and they believe. Soon, so will you.
The Wicked End
5 piece Metal/Hard Rock band from Newark, DE. For fans of Avenged Sevenfold
5 piece Metal outfit from New Jersey. Hell bent on taking your beer and your women.
Band Bio:VIA was formed in Jan. 2012 consisting of four members. Christian Alexander/Guitar-Lead Vocals, Anthony Mlynarczyk Guitar-Back up Vocals are formerly from Savior. Zane Maxwell/Bass, Patrick Liberatore/Drums-Vocals are currently from Saving October. These two projects merged to form an alternative rock style that pleases a wide range of fans both young and old. The bands name "VIA" was derived from a series of messages via texting between Alexander and Liberatore that later was seen to be the vital link identifying the creation of "VIA". While songs were being written a logical approach was used to add the missing links to this 4 peice project. Alexander knowing Mlynarczyk's metal style felt this addition would give an edgy sound yet at the same time would create an alternative feel when blended with Alexander's Pop Rock feel. Liberatore's drumming style gives the band an equal measure of metal but maintains that rocky consistant rhythm. Liberatore knowing Maxwell's artistic talent and wide range of bassy riffs completes this line up to surely wow a crowd of all ages. These members all have both show and recording experience. The bands curent direction warrented the need to hire a professional group to put together its promotional package to immediately begin the process of placing them on the map. The band hired Dmaff Media and Paurhaus Productions to handle its immediate affairs for all audio, recording, professional photography and website designs.
