Oceans Ate Alaska
Stemming from Birmingham, UK, Oceans Ate Alaska is made up of James Harrison (Vocals), James Kennedy (Guitar), Adam Zytkiewicz (Guitar), Mike Stanton (Bass), and Chris Turner (Drums). The band offers a progressive strain of experimental modern metalcore that has gotten them noticed as one of metal's most exciting and fresh young names. With music as unpredictable as it is expressive, the band found inspiration for their name from the world's largest recorded mega-tsunami - measuring at 1,700 feet high - that demolished Alaska's coastline in 1958. The band was attracted to the natural disaster's national headline that read "Oceans Ate Alaska" where they decided to carry the name on a path to make their own history. By pushing sonic boundaries, Oceans Ate Alaska aim to take listeners on an emotional journey through unpredictable arrangements (both heavy and melodic), ruthless riffs, and unforgiving guttural vocals; setting an atmospheric landscape that showcases the band's technical skill.
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.
