Weapon X

http://www.weaponxband.com/

What happens when a heavy music frontman goes to Iraq? He comes back and creates a sonic movement that gives a voice to anyone who has experienced adversity. And that happens to be everyone. Weapon-X represents the underdog in a tough world and a changing music industry. All of the usual ingredients are there: intense vocals, insane riffs, huge drums, thunderous bass, an overall sense of anarchy...but what Weapon-X is rebelling against goes deeper than your average heavy band. The Band is not in it to throw a middle finger in the air to everyone and everything. Weapon-X's musicianship and well-crafted songs will serve as a vessel for positive change.

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!
