Wormreich

http://wormreich.bandcamp.com/

Wormreich emerged from deep within the fetid and rotten bowels of America's bible belt, as the unified projection of three sovereign beings with supreme devotion to Satan and the Black Arts in a place where Jesus' commands and hollow praises reign supreme. We are merely a conduit for His will, interpreted in ritual frequencies by these three possessed creatures. We offer unto you, the human race, our sacrament of blood and fire, as we stand with those who came before us to cleanse this world of the most holy abomination. We await our masters' promise of purifying obliteration!

Winery Dogs

Rock supergroups have come and gone but The Winery Dogs have a natural chemistry that effortlessly blends the natural talent of Sheehan and Portnoy into a rhythm juggernaut. However, it’s Kotzen’s blues-influenced guitar and smoky vocals that truly tie the band together into a cohesive unit. ‘When 3 rock legends get together to make a supergroup there are certain expectations, and with The Winery Dogs my expectations were definitely met and exceeded.’- ultimate-guitar.com

Additional Info
Rock’s super-group, THE WINERY DOGS are hitting the road again in support of their sophomore album out later this year that expands on the instant chemistry band-members Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan & Richie Kotzen immediately and undeniably had on their first 2014 tour. With a cohesive, straight-ahead classic sound, the well-rounded trio promise a night of blazing songs that defy expectations and let each member’s talent shine.

Krieg

https://www.facebook.com/officialkrieg

To give you an idea of how long Krieg have been around, let's put it this way: Korn's second album came out in 1996. Krieg's first demo came out in 1996. That means that when you and all of your friends were buying Adidas jumpsuits, this solo project (which has featured session members from every single black metal band you like) was worshiping death and making unlistenable noise that now, 14 years later, is arguably more relevant than ever. And unlike so many bands whose only claim to fame is that they simply couldn't find anything better to do for a decade+, Krieg's music continues to get more intense, more serious, more hateful, all while simultaneously being the embodiment of black metal and giving the entire scene the finger.
