Herman's Hideaway and Metal Maggard Presents: Flood Victim Wyl Collins and family Benefit Show

Beyond Influence

Beyond Influence is a heavy hitting original rock band based out of Denver, Colorado. Since forming in 2010 the band has seen several members come and go. Currently the group members are Paul Rampa (Vocals), Richard England (Guitars), Dan Robinson (Bass Guitar) and Dan Eberling (Drums). The sound of Beyond Influence combines pulse pounding rock with a touch of groove and metal - creating one of the most intense and unique sounds in the local scene. Beyond Influence currently performs every 4 to 6 weeks in the Denver area and is currently working on a 5 song EP album planned for release in 2013.

Born from the Colorado metal scene, rarely does a band this versatile and powerful come about, with goals of dominating audiences and searing their blazing sound into the minds of those listening. By way of a thunderous approach, Fist Fight is a combination of numerous musical philosophies and styles which comes at you from every possible angle. Utilizing raw, yet polished techniques at the same time, they fold in a unique blend of technical ability, hardcore, grove and traditional metal riffs accompanied by punkish tones, and a level of unforeseen forceful aggression that commands notice by pounding onlookers' teeth down their throats with a take no prisoners attitude.

The initial foundation of Fist Fight was laid in December 2010 when guitarists Jon Maggard and Nich Rich began to build the band from the ground up. Bassist Adrian Montoya joined the duo in March 2011, and after trying out several drummers and
vocalists, drummer Chris Day and frontman Dustin Holmer solidified the monster collection of talent to create Fist Fight.

With decades of collective experience in the music industry, the members of Fist Fight come from an impressive resume of bands, of which a partial list includes Less Than Under, Chromax, Control Element, Guilty Of Aggression, Skapegoat and Ceverence. Their members have also performed alongside well-known bands such as Hed PE, Snot, Motograter, Hemlock, LA Guns, White Lion and Chimera, to name just a few. Through hard work and natural talent, Fist Fight is poised to set the metal world on fire with an explosive sound that, prior to the band's inception, was unheard of.

Fist Fight uses Shure Microphones, Gibson, Jackson, Epiphone and BC Rich Guitars, four and five-string Schecter Basses, Dunlop Sharp Picks, POD Pros, Mesa Boogie Amps, Peavey/Carvin Cabs, Eminence Speakers, SWR Workingman and Peavey Heads, Monster Cables, Pearl Export Series Drums, Ziljian Cymbals, Pearl Hardware, Pedalstand Evans/Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth 5b Sticks.

Don't allow yourself to be caught off guard; the era of the mighty Fist Fight has just begun.

Smackfactor

SMACKFACTOR…This whole project began when formed in late February of 2004. From then on, an unforgettable distinct style of metal has emerged… Tribal infused Power Metal! Smackfactor has the ability to grow on you , grab hold, and never let go! Just ask any of our many loyal fans! This very diverse style of metal is forged by hard working team members with extensive professional backgrounds. Backgrounds not just in metal and hardcore, but also in classical, tribal, folk, jazz and cubanismo (to name a few). Ranking with thier unique sound comes an energetic performance answering the question to the reason why we are in the entertainment business. “You will get your moneys worth” at a SmackFactor show, along with a huge selection of top quality merchandise “we” manufacture ourselves! Yes, SmackFactor owns a full size t-shirt print shop supplying the local and international metal industry! SmackFactor has had the honor of playing with national and local performers in and out of Colorado. Some venues include; The Ogden Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, The Bluebird Theatre, Big City NightClub, Iliff Park Saloon, The Gothic Theatre, Hodis Halfnote and The Dickens Operahouse (to name a few)… SmackFactor is currently gaining an even larger fan base since the new CD release and touring plans are beggining to surface! Success for this group is largely accredited to the “superglue chemistry” formed only through overcoming incredible odds such as scam artist sound engineers— to tactically avoiding local backstabbing politics that only serve to destroy the metal scene. SmackFactor will prove to you on all levels with hard work and determination, you can overcome any obsticle and prosper in your path. We simply won’t take “no” for an answer……. Be watching for us………….. We’re looking for you……………. (the one and only)……..SMACKFACTOR
