The Hell No
For fans of: Janis Joplin, Iron Maiden, Concrete Blonde
The Hell No is a dynamic combination of punk 'n roll and blues rock, exuding free, raw emotion as they create sweeping melodies, powerful harmonies, and candid verses. Vocalist Brenna combines explosive soul and smoky blues, while Adam, lead guitarist, delicately and successfully intertwines metal, rock n’ roll, and blues riffs to soar alongside Brenna’s wail. Ash thumps a thunderous, yet dexterous bass that locks in perfectly with Dave Mac’s commanding and precise drum patterns, creating energetic rhythms that support lightning fast guitar work and intense, unrestrained vocals. Elements of hard rock, heavy metal, and blues come together in The Hell No for a unique, refreshing sound.
For fans of: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Pentagram
Taking their name from one of the darker tracks of the Deep Purple catalog, Demon Eye consists of four men, two New Yorkers, two Southerners, and one shared love for old school metal. Demon Eye’s heavy grooves and thunder rhythms channel the doom and crush of Black Sabbath and Pentagram, and the fist banging shred of early Iron Maiden. They have shared the stage with the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Spirit Caravan, King’s X, Loincloth, Mike Scheidt (YOB/Vohl), The Sword, Lord Dying, Hour of 13, Pilgrim, Samothrace, Uzala, and Mount Salem. Demon Eye has been featured in Iron Fist UK, Classic Rock Magazine, Premier Guitar Magazine, Terrorizer, Destructive Music, and Metal Temple.
In early 2014 they released their Soulseller Records debut, “Leave the Light,” which met with excellent worldwide reviews and earned them an invite to the annual Hopscotch Music Festival to play alongside High on Fire, (headlined by Mastodon). Demon Eye is hellbent on bringing their hook-laden, dark riffin' songcraft to fans far and wide.
For Fans of: Rush, David Bowie, Television & The Police.
Passionate, paired vocals and technical, textural guitars weave
between cyberfunk basslines and a matrix of percussive patterns.
Urban anxiety, a network of wordplay and touches of minimalism meet at an incredible moment when the fear of change is displaced by the thrill of new beginnings and the exhalation of exciting ideas.
