Dead Horse Trauma
Destroying silence. Dark. Heavy. Melodic. Chaotic. Dead Horse Trauma touches the willing and unwilling by painting a pretty picture of the perversity of everyday life in a manner soothing to the serial killer in all of us. The new alternative to duct tape and razor wire.
"The Unmerciful Infliction of The Sorrow You Deserve"
Dead Horse Trauma brings a vengeance that shows vividly thru their explosive live performance.
Did they come from another planet? Who knows. One look, one listen and it's clear that anything's possible at this point. Allegedly formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2004, the band BLUE FELIX are set to thrill in 2011 with a top secret tour in the works, an album out co-produced by the legendary Sid Wilson a.k.a #0/ DJ Starscream of the one and only Slipknot, a live show that has drawn comparison to everyone from Rob Zombie to (Hed)PE to Marilyn Manson to Gwar - bringing energy and theatrics the likes of which you've never seen before.
Their newest video, the first single off the album 'Sample of a Solution' received over 50,000 views on Youtube alone barely within its first few months, in part due to the band's lively antics, crazy stage get-up and super catchy 'Middle Finger Up' lyrics. Oh and did we mention that Mr Wilson himself makes a cameo, albeit it perhaps unwittingly, as he is captured by the band, dragged to the stage and forced to DJ for the frenzied crowd.
The six piece, named after 'a certain dose of LSD that was particularly favoured by members of our group in the early days' deliver a musical and visual experience something very eerily close to taking an acid dose earning them a cult following in the Midwest of loyal D.o.D's – the Dogs of Doom – where psychedelic rock meets metal, warpaint, frenzied energy and a couple hits of its namesake – this is where you'll find BLUE FELIX. An experience like no other. Check them out now.
Screaming For Silence
Hard. Hard feelings. Hard work. Hard rock. SCREAMING FOR SILENCE powers through the lows with unapologetic roars, punishing percussion, sweaty bass lines and euphoric guitar riffs in their debut EP featuring the nu-metal – rock fused anthem "Separate" and the many-layered standout "Helpless." Beaten but not down, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE commands attention in the studio and especially live on-stage.
