Call it what you will, but the metal genre has become a wasteland of the same tired breakdowns and unoriginal riffing. It's rare to find a band that brings the heaviness that all metal fans long for, while adding a refreshing new edge to it. Five piece metal group, Death of an Era, is bringing a refined sound to the death metal world by delivering a blend of unique technical guitar work with a pile driving hardcore barrage. This Columbus, Ohio based band is quickly becoming a staple amongst the favorite groups of heavy music followers. One of the more remarkable aspects of the band is the ability to create the traditional death metal tone with tasteful modern features of programming and cinematic orchestration. They are not, by any means, confined to a set of preconceived notions on what metal should be, and this is self evident throughout their music. Death of an Era have also set itself apart by bringing a message, a heartfelt, meaningful message that listeners everywhere will be able to relate to. Lyrically, there is a great effort to address issues that people are facing everyday in their own lives, which is a far cry from many of the current acts in their scene. Death of an Era are not just another band to be lost in the over-saturated music scene. They've found their sound throughout the first few years of their "Do it Yourself" driven venture. All in under a year, the band self-released an international selling record, was featured in Alternative Press' AP&R, self-released a music video, and connected with crowds of hundreds of dedicated fans in a multitude of states.
One wouldn't guess that the powerful machine that is Death of an Era would be comprised of such young artists. Although averaging around the age of 20, the band is no amateur act. Listeners can find meaning in the passionate lyrical aptitude that frontman Daniel Simpson provides. Daniel, as well as Nathan Stewart (guitar), Dustin Colling (guitar) brothers Chris Cooper (bass) and Michael Cooper (drums) have set out to connect with thousands of fellow musicians and fans alike. Death of an Era is composed of a force of dedicated musicians who are guaranteed to bring a promising balance of "modern" and "metal".
Years Since The Storm
It's been five Years Since "the Storm's" inception in central New England. After more than 200 shows throughout 15 of the U.S. states and counting, these five young men will not let up. With an irrefutably dominating stage presence and a do-it-yourself mentality, Years Since the Storm will conquer all obstacles in their path.
Reign Of Lies
Channeling their inner rage and bringing grit and groove back to the metal scene, Reign of Lies is revitalizing the genre, sticking to their root, and playing with a fearless conviction that is lacking in many of today's bands.
After recording three albums and touring across Europe, Gianni Rosati "Giro" moved to L.A. and began his solo project Reign of Lies with the vision of finding musicians with the same passion and determination as himself. He went to the prestigious Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California where he found those traits in Mashadi Maximus, Greg Kate and Yoyo Bianchi.
In the summer of 2012 Reign of Lies began recording their debut album "The New Empire" mixed by Lee Wanner, which will be released in early 2013." They are also endorsed by the globally renowned clothing company "Keetch" who also endorse bands such as Meshuggah, Unearth, PDP, and Fear Factory.
Reign of Lies is ready to bring their unique style and presence to fans across the globe, and immortalize themselves among metals elite.
