Among the youngest bands ever to storm the metal genre, Death Angel has come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s, an era when one could catch Cliff Burton (Metallica) at the front of the stage at Ruthie's Inn banging his head to Death Angel's inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements

In 1986, a Death Angel demo produced by Kirk Hammett (Metallica) titled "Kill As One" sparked the interest of Enigma Records. Then, in 1987, Death Angel's debut, "The Ultra Violence," was released. Drummer Andy Galeon was just 14 years old at the time. The album was a full-frontal assault on the ears, buzzing with the group's youthful energy, and "The Ultra Violence" sold 40,000 copies in just four months. Another innovative recording, "Frolic Through the Park," followed, marking Death Angel's evolution both lyrically and musically. "Bored," another track from the band's second release, highlighted the cutting-edge band's inventive dynamics, and won a spot on MTV's "Headbanger's Ball."

Geffen Records was impressed enough with Death Angel's television premier to offer the band a deal, and Death Angel became the first band of their breed to appear on the major label's roster. At Geffen, the band released what is widely regarded as one of the most original and accomplished thrash metal albums ever recorded, "Act III." The record pushed the limits of the genre to create something truly unique, a definitive work that is essential to any metal fan's music collection. Death Angel's masterful songwriting ability was once again on display nationwide in 1990, as the videos for "Seemingly Endless Time' and 'Room With A View' saw heavy rotation on MTV.

3 Inches Of Blood

Raised in hell, forged by fire and harder than Krupp Steel, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD are about to triumphantly return as one of the biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal with their stunning new album, "Here Waits Thy Doom"! The new opus was tracked in Seattle's Sound House Recordings with renowned producer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, High on Fire, Zeke) and is soon to be hailed as the gospel of all things heavy.

"Here Waits They Doom" marks the recording debut of extremely talented drummer Ash Pearson that lends a whole new dynamic to the band's already lethal assault. This disc is also the first offering where Cam Pipes handles all vocal duties with Justin Hagberg adding some backups. Guitarist Shane Clark and Hagberg also laid down all of the bass tracks themselves, ensuring maximum shred on the album. Although the lineup is different, the aesthetic remains the same, and the technical proficiency surpasses that of the last record.

Shane Clark (guitars) states: "Our new album is finished and we've named it "Here Waits Thy Doom". Much like our last record it is a step beyond the album that precedes it. We've again taken what we do a step further and not made "Fire Up The Blades" part 2, we've stuck to our formula - no formula. We are true metal fans and we've made an unapologetic metal record. I think this our most focused record to date, from writing all the way to mixing there was no unnecessary drama or too many cooks in the kitchen. This is 3 INCHES OF BLOOD at its most punishing, epic and mighty."

Born out of a love for pure metal, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have been slaying the infidels of extreme music for nearly a decade. In that time, they've released three albums and toured with such acclaimed acts as Satyricon, The Black Dahlia Murder, Motorhead, Cradle of Filth or Exodus, just to name a few. With their last album, "Fire Up the Blades", they crafted a number of undeniable anthems that crash, rip and roar like a Medieval battleground. With their first album on Century Media Records, "Here Waits Thy Doom", 3 INCHES OF BLOOD now up the ante and will leave every metal fan crying iron tears of pure joy!

3 INCHES OF BLOOD represent everything that heavy metal was, is and will be about! "Here Waits Thy Doom" demonstrates that the best way to stay ahead of the heavy metal curve is to write music that comes from the heart and sounds nothing like the horde of bands tapping into the latest trends. To that end, they draw fuel from their favorite artists, including Judas Priest, Mercyful Fate, UFO, and Rainbow and compile it all into their own deadly potion.

Take a running dive into The Blades, and find out.

Revocation returns with a new album of masterful modern metal in Chaos of Forms. Unforgettable songs bend, stop, twist, and shred at virtuosic levels while exploding with frenetic energy. As future classics "Cradle Robber", "Dissolution Ritual", "No Funeral", "Cretin" and more show, each aspect of the band has been honed to deadly perfection and brings to fruition the promise that (the previous full-length) Existence Is Futile hinted at. Chaos of Forms proves beyond doubt that REVOCATION are masters of their craft and metal's finest new band.

"absolutely godlike death/thrash." - Decibel

"a whirlwind of methodical metal in its highest form; aggressive, heavy, challenging, melodic and oftentimes, dare I say, fun as fuck to listen to." - Metal Maniacs

"Taking the excellent dynamics of Pestilence with the visceral intensity of Sepultura and the technical prowess of Carcass combined with shredding extensive leads and solos Revocation are a band that is going places." - Masterful-Magazine.com

Battlecross

The young band’s career kicked off what every metal musician dreams of: amazing album reviews from Metal's most respected publications for their 2011 debut on Metal Blade Records, Pursuit of Honor. Metal Assault named the record "one of the most 'complete heavy metal albums in recent times’ while receiving high praises from heavyweights Revolver, Decibel, Blabbermouth and others. With killer reviews across the internet and in print publications throughout North America and overseas (including band of the month in Metal Hammer Norway and Metal Hammer Spain), it should be no surprise that this blue collar, hard-work ethic that comes from the members of BATTLECROSS translates into a potent force on record as well as a high-energy live performance winning fans across the country on some of the metal’s highest profile tours.

The growing buzz over Pursuit of Honor positioned the band for opportunities that have proven to be stepping stones for what is expected to be a long and exciting career for BATTLECROSS, starting with a spot in a 2011 CMJ Showcase with Skeletonwitch and Kvelertak and the band's first tour ever, an Eastern U.S. run with Rose Funeral and Diamond Plate. It was during this tour that BATTLECROSS was introduced to North America and became SiriusXM Liquid Metal mainstays with the single Push Pull Destroy, which spent over 30 weeks on 'The Devil's Dozen' and reached the #1 most requested song for five weeks and to date, over two million YouTube views. Throughout 2012, satellite radio introduced singles 'Breaking You' and 'Man of Stone', together spending a total of 50 weeks on Jose Mangin's popular Metal Countdown.

BATTLECROSS' reputation for technical talent, humility and fan engagement earned the band the opportunity to continue their climb with an appearance at 2012 SXSW Metal Blade Showcase; tours with: Hate Eternal and Goatwhore (Winter 2012), Origin, Decrepit Birth, Cattle Decapitation on the Occupation Domination Tour (Spring 2012), Metal Hammer's Trespass America Festival with Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, and Trivium (Summer 2012), a headlining stage appearance at Heavy MTL, opposite System of a Down and high-profile shows celebrating Metal Blade's 30th Anniversary with As I Lay Dying, Six Feet Under and more.

Diamond Plate

Hailing from Chicago, IL, DIAMOND PLATE formed in 2004 while all three members were still in high school. Despite their age, they hit the ground running as they displayed musicianship and a passion for heavy music that went beyond their years. Declining record label offers in favor of working on their sound and letting their songwriting evolve , drummer James Nicademus, (former) vocalist/bassist Jon Macak and guitarist Konrad Kupiec, began making serious waves in the underground scene via word-of-mouth, self-released EPs and local slots supporting metal giants BEHEMOTH, GOJIRA, and EXODUS. Two months after graduating high school, the band decided it was time to ink a deal, enter the legendary Earache records.

In 2010, DIAMOND PLATE went into the studio with producer Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Cannibal Corpse, Nevermore) to record their debut album "Generation Why?" The album's extreme vocals, groove-based riffs, and machine-tight production allowed the band to distance themselves from their "thrash revival" peers, while earning them rave reviews and high profile tours. Appearing in America and the UK with ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, and D.R.I. among others, as well as festival slots on the 70,000 Tons of Metal and Hammerfest, DIAMOND PLATE'S reputation as a high energy live act began to grow.

After the touring cycle, guitarist Konrad Kupiec and drummer James Nicademus were joined by new vocalist/bassist and Miami native Matt Ares. The band took off touring for the rest of 2012 and focused on writing a new album, and it was during this time that Diamond Plate's sound underwent a transmutation. With an emphasis on creating songs from jamming, a 'play what thou wilt' attitude, and 19 year old Matt Ares' charismatic voice, the band matured drastically while blending together a much wider range of influences.

Neil Kernon was again asked to lead the production originally scheduled for two weeks in January 2013 even though the making of the record extended into months, characterized by the underlying tension of outside pressure, deadlines, and personal struggles. Despite all of this, DIAMOND PLATE emerged with "Pulse," an album brimming with live energy and the vibe of a young band playing heavy music straight from the heart.
