Among the youngest bands ever to storm the metal genre, Death Angel has come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s, an era when one could catch Cliff Burton (Metallica) at the front of the stage at Ruthie's Inn banging his head to Death Angel's inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements
In 1986, a Death Angel demo produced by Kirk Hammett (Metallica) titled "Kill As One" sparked the interest of Enigma Records. Then, in 1987, Death Angel's debut, "The Ultra Violence," was released. Drummer Andy Galeon was just 14 years old at the time. The album was a full-frontal assault on the ears, buzzing with the group's youthful energy, and "The Ultra Violence" sold 40,000 copies in just four months. Another innovative recording, "Frolic Through the Park," followed, marking Death Angel's evolution both lyrically and musically. "Bored," another track from the band's second release, highlighted the cutting-edge band's inventive dynamics, and won a spot on MTV's "Headbanger's Ball."
Geffen Records was impressed enough with Death Angel's television premier to offer the band a deal, and Death Angel became the first band of their breed to appear on the major label's roster. At Geffen, the band released what is widely regarded as one of the most original and accomplished thrash metal albums ever recorded, "Act III." The record pushed the limits of the genre to create something truly unique, a definitive work that is essential to any metal fan's music collection. Death Angel's masterful songwriting ability was once again on display nationwide in 1990, as the videos for "Seemingly Endless Time' and 'Room With A View' saw heavy rotation on MTV.
High On Fire
Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, High On Fire creates modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness. Described as "a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume," High On Fire has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique. The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike -- also a founding member of the famed underground band Sleep -- along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz. Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone's "New Guitar Gods" and is one of rock's most charismatic figures. High On Fire's latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.

Thrash Or Die
Thrash or Die is a Thrash Metal band hailing from South Florida. The band was formed under unusual circumstances on May 9, 2007 by Vokillist Dr. Fukk and Guitarist, Hellvomit Sodomizer. Just months before the birth of Thrash or Die, Dr. Fukk and Hellvomit Sodomizer were arch enemies.
Oddly enough, in the midst of chaos, Dr. Fukk saved Hellvomit Sodomizer from a very dangerous situation and even ceased the opportunity to threaten his life. This unsuspected turn in the pages of history then created a very strong allegiance between the former rivals. Quickly did they begin writing songs, and teamed up with other local musicians who were as hungry for the Thrash as they were.
Unfortunately, not too long after the songwriting process did some squad of aliens decide to invade earth. They captured several former members of the band, but luckily, all members were replaced after the aliens went back out in to space somewhere, thus; making Thrash or Die stronger than ever!
The band is currently promoting their debut album, Poser Holocaust, full of soon to be Thrashterpieces. There is only one problem... a horrible zombie manifestation has invaded the little Cuban town of Hialeah, and the members of Thrash or Die have all been rumored of being infected. Only you can help find the antidote by spreading the word of Thrash or Die by going out to the local shows, buying their stuff and telling everyone about them! Spread the word like the virus, start up a circle pit and bang your heads before it's too late!!!!
Miami psychedelic noise conjurers, ORBWEAVER, have just released their debut EP Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon. a manical journey through modulating realities, the five-track mind eraser was recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche at the controls and mixed/mastered with Brian Elliot at Mana Recording Studios (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Exhumed). ORBWEAVER’s tones spiral through the realms of psychedelia, noise, and a warped interpretation of death metal. Fluctuating between these erratic, trance-like elements, the foursome produce an eclectic sonic ruckus reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled chaos. Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon has been unleashed in a limited run of 100 cassette tapes via Primitive Violence Records and on CD direct through the band HERE.
Fittingly dubbed “deranged, psychedelic death metal hurdling through space at speeds that make The Millennium Falcon look like your little sister’s moped,” by Orlandooom.com and, “a dissonant, warped interpretation of technical death metal, spliced with sheer blasts of chaotic noise and a mangled black-metal influence that claws its way to the surface halfway through,” by Saltyeggs.com, Orbweaver was forged in 2010 by guitarist/vocalist Randy Piro (ex-Hate Eternal, Gigan) and drummer Mike Pena. Together they recorded a self-titled, three-song demo. Shortly after, lead guitarist Sally Gates (ex-Gigan) and bassist Jason Ledgard joined the fold. Mike Pena parted ways with the group in 2013, and was replaced by drummer/percussionist Scott Spasiano.
"Discordant, dirty, twisted, demonic, but spacious and intricate – their latest material on Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon will kick your 26-dimensional ass all up and down the omniverse." - Decibelmagazine.com
