Upon This Dawning

Hailing from Verona, Italy, pulverizing sextet Upon This Dawning has been honing their melodically brand of metal. Touring incessantly in Italy, the band quickly attracted a rabid following in their home country, releasing EP "Count The Seconds Until Your Last Breath", and gained new fans in each city at their shows throughout Europe. The band has shared stages with some of the biggest names in the scene including Asking Alexandria, Underoath, Dance Gavin Dance, blessthefall, Piece the Veil, Motionless in White and In Fear and Faith, and is endorsed by Truth Custom Drums. Upon This Dawning is set to release their first album with Fearless Records in fall 2012.

The Browning

In what could be described as nothing short of 'adventurous,' THE BROWNING's music takes influences from all across the metal spectrum and heavily fuses them with hardstyle, trance and other areas of electronic music in a way that most metal acts would not dare attempt. The band pushes boundaries and pushes buttons. In short, when it comes to The Browning, TheNewReview.net put it best when they said "the soundtrack to the apocalypse has arrived."

San Diego favorites, Adestria, have been working their way through the ranks of the music scene and showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. Recently labeled #5 Unsigned Band by AP magazine, this band blends big breakdowns with melodic piano and catchy guitar riffs. Known for their live performance and unqiue stage show, Adestria will be making their way around the US this summer. Fans of Asking Alexandria and August Burns Red will find Adestria to be the perfect mix of fast heavy music, gang chants, and memorable choruses. Expect a full length album to come out in 2011.

Phinehas was formed with a simple purpose: to be a band of Christians that brings the hope of Jesus to the hopeless and rejected. Though the line-up has changed over the years, the root of the band has only grown. From their first 10-day tour in 2010 to their 121 shows in 2012, Phinehas has been sharing their story and building relationships across the US. They want the people they meet on the road to walk away feeling loved for who they are no matter where they may be in life.
Musically, when Phinehas' debut full-length "thegodmachine" was released in 2011, they caught the ears of critics and metalheads across the globe. From the shreddy riffs and the sassy solos to the versatile vocals and the pounding drums, "thegodmachine" brought a freshness to a scene that was suffering from the over-saturation the digital age has wrought. The mustaches they donned in one of their promotional photos even inspired a fan to coin Phinehas' music as "mustache metal". They released three music videos from their debut that have accumulated over 1.2 million views combined. Their January 2013 EP "The Bridge Between", featuring both full-band songs and stripped-down acoustic arrangements, showcased the diversity of their musical interests and abilities. Since becoming a full-time national act in the summer of 2011, Phinehas has been touring extensively around the country in support of these two releases with bands such as WRITE THIS DOWN, TO SPEAK OF WOLVES, FAMOUS LAST WORDS, RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA, SPOKEN, THE PARAMEDIC, DESIGN THE SKYLINE, CHALLENGER, IT LIES WITHIN, A PAST UNKNOWN, and more.
Now, 2 years following their debut on Red Cord Records, Phinehas is ready to push themselves even further with their sophomore effort "The Last Word Is Yours To Speak". Under the pressure of having to follow up their critically-acclaimed debut, Phinehas delivered in a big way. Their new album ups the ante of metal in every aspect. It's faster, it's heavier, its production value is top-notch, and it will be stuck in your head from the first listen. With this new record and their relentlessly energetic live performances, Phinehas is ready to carve their niche in the music industry for good.
