The Iron Maidens
Formed in 2001, The Iron Maidens have quickly established themselves as one of southern California's most popular tribute acts and are rapidly gaining international recognition. The band boasts beauty as well as excellent musicianship, lively stage presence, and a remarkable stage show with theatrical scenes interspersed throughout.
First and foremost on the agenda of The Iron Maidens is talent. These women are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds ranging from orchestral and musical theater to blues and rock. The band and its members have been the recipients of many awards including best tribute band, and best in category (guitar, bass, drums, voice) at events such as The Rock City News Awards, The LA Music Awards, and The All Access Magazine Award Show to name a few.
The line-up is:
Kirsten Rosenberg aka Bruce Chickinson- Vocals
Linda McDonald aka Nikki McBURRain-Drums
Courtney Cox aka Adrianna Smith- Guitar
Wanda Ortiz aka Steph Harris- Bass
Nita Strauss aka Mega Murray -Guitar
The Iron Maidens cover Iron Maiden material from all eras of the band's career, encompassing the band's biggest hits as well as fan favorites. The stage show includes appearances by Maiden mascot Eddie, the grimreaper, the devil and more.
Based out of La Jolla, California, Stone Horse is your local proverbial rock band.
One summer day, after a chance meeting at Windansea Beach in 2009, co-founders Carlos Rodriguez (guitarist) and Danielle Spade (lead vocals) decided to put their musical heads together and created what later became known as Stone Horse.
They wrote songs reminiscent of their early 70’s British and American rock influences. A catchy, drivin’ 10 song CD entitled “GRIT” resulted and was released in February of 2014.
Now backed by Dave Steinman (drums), Al Venditti (bassist) and Arthur Nobilette (lead guitar), Stone Horse is set to get out of the stable and out on the road!
Seventrain performed together for the first time in the fall of 2012 in San Diego, California at a memorial show for the late Vincent John Crudo, (otherwise known as “Big Vinnie”), who was a respected local sound technician and bass player in the Southern California area. Guitarist Eric Horton, who had previous worldwide success with his former power metal band Cage, assembled some admired local musicians to play a handful of cover songs at the memorial show. Shortly after this performance, the guys decided to record an album of material that guitarist Eric Horton and vocalist Jon Campos had been working on. Eric recruited former 24-7 Spyz (Atlantic/Eastwest Records) drummer Joel Maitoza who respectively has appeared on 22 albums to produce and play drums on the debut along with guitarist Jef Poremba (Kofi Baker, 6ONE9), vocalist Jon Campos (Dive Bomber) and bassist Greg Rupp (My Middle Finger, 6ONE9) who appeared on the CD, but was replaced by Steve (Dino) Andino (Tourniquet) shortly after the recording of the album.
Following a few months of pre-production, they started recording the debut album in the spring of 2013 at DML Studios with engineer Don Lithgow (Blink 182, New Found Glory, Finch) lovingly tracked in analog on 2” tape.
Seventrain draws from a variety of influences. When you listen to the bands music, you immediately identify with the honesty & integrity of many of the great 70's hard rock icons combined with the intensity and ability of today’s top hard rock artists. Not only does Seventrain have the ability to take rock music to the extreme, it also has the depth to create very emotional songs that send a strong universal message. The bands music transcends the trends and fads that plague today’s popular music. We feel if we truly love what we create, we hope you will too!
The bands self-titled debut album was released in the US, Europe and Japan on 2/18/2014 on their own label So Cal Records/Alliance Entertainment (available now on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby). It also charted on the CMJ Loud Rock Top 40 charts at #36 it's first week to radio on 2/25/2014 and has been receiving favorable reviews by critics worldwide.
Hailing out of Southern California, the origins of Malison are traced back to the days of a high school cover band looking to get together and play some tunes.
After years and years of playing together and putting on cover shows for friends and family, original material was starting to get written, and then the embryonic stage of musical development started to progress.
After Malison had found a guitarist with similar musical direction, the band started collaborating together on new musical ideas, inspired by the sounds of Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Between the Buried and Me, Dragonforce, and Megadeth.
On January 17th, 2014, Malison was born.
Since then, Malison has played a handful of shows in the Southern California metal scene, and has even taken the prerogative to put on its own shows hosting San Diego talent to build the heavy metal community. Using the moniker "Malison Presents," Pop vs. Metal was an instant success, and now "Pop vs. Metal II: A New Challenger" will be underway!
Malison is hoping to reach the heavy metal community with a revival of clean vocals, complementing the classic sound and feel of the 1980s, with a contemporary edge for originality. The galloping bass lines, raspy vocals, and melodic harmony encompasses Malison's vision for a new, unique sound.
Currently, the band just self-released their first EP, "Impulses" on June 9th, 2015
and is currently waiting to take the stage at a venue near you!
