Mushroomhead is an American metal rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. Formed in 1993, the band’s music can be described as a synthesis of alternative music, experimental music, and heavy metal. Known for its theatrical live show and the black masks that most of its member wear on-stage, Mushroomhead is one of the more unique and adventurous alternative metal outfits that emerged in the 1990s. The Cleveland band’s music is as interesting as its image; Mushroomheads forceful yet melodic alterna-metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, punk, and goth rock as well as industrial and techno. The bands last album sold over 200,000 units in the USA alone. Mushroomhead released Savior Sorrow for the pioneering rock label Megaforce Records in 2006. A few years later in the fall of 2010, they released “Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children” and it debuted as #44 on Billboard charts.
One Eyed Doll
Genre: Goth, Punk Rock
Similar to: Creature Feature, The Dirty Youth, Straight Line Stitch
Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine’s Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime, One-Eyed Doll is an award-winning Austin, Texas power rock duo with a loyal global fan base and extensive international press exposure. In 2009, 2010, 2011, the group swept the SXSW Music Awards in categories such as Best Punk Band, Best Metal Band, Best Goth Band, Best New Band and much more. The group has independently released three full-length albums, they appear in Revolver, Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines and has left several national tours in its wake including major anime conventions. Blazing the band’s wildfire, amongst their growing legions or religiously crazed fans, is One-Eyed Doll’s cult leader: the impossible-not-to-love Kimberly Freeman, whose punishment is so sweet you’ll beg for more.

XFactor1 was formed during the brutal winter of 2006 with the intent of bringing decadence, intensity and the true meaning of music back to a rock and metal scene that was sounding pretty tame and had lost its connection with the people that matter the most, the fans. To date, XFactor1 has sold over 50,000 units combined of their EP “Something Inside”, 1 CD/DVD combo, and in 2011 charted for 4 weeks on Billboards Heatseekers charts for the NE/Central US region. In 2012 they were signed to MRi/Megaforce to extend the reach for the release of their most ambitious and rock solid release to date, Famous.Last.Words. The defining formula that personifies who they are, what they believe in, and the dreams that we all live for.
The X Members
Genre: Punk, rock
The X Members are birthed in musical freedom, bathed in whiskey, and bred to destroy. A beautiful train wreck of punk, rockability, metal, swing, and hard rock. Greasy, mean, and good at it. Comprised of several current and ex members (…get it?) of prominent Cleveland bands, (Pitch Black Forecast, State of Conviction, The Missing, Keratoma, Horror Madonna), The X members were looking for a new musical outlet. To be shoved straight out of their comfort zones. To attempt to create a brand new genre of music, based on having no conceptual grounds or stereotypes. Equal parts Astro-Creep and Horton Heat. We dig it… do you?
