Few bands have accomplished this rare feat on a more profound and consistent basis than Neurosis. For nearly three decades, their music has touched the hearts and minds of young men and women seeking contact with something beyond the physical world, something intangible, something that expresses the inner tumult of the human condition in a way that transcends time and space. Something that not only provokes questions but maybe even hints at answers

Hivelords

https://hivelords.bandcamp.com/

Philly - avante-garde - psychedlic - black metal 'Cavern Apothecary' was a glimpse into the potential this band had at that point. On ‘Tapered Limbs of a Human Star’, they've smashed through the glass ceiling and surpassed the promise they showed. The fact that they're signed to Anthropic Records is both a blessing and a curse; it makes those who know about the band seem like part of a secret club and preserves their cult status. However, had this been released on a label like Relapse, Profound Lore or Candlelight, everyone would be losing their shit and proclaiming this as the best album they've heard this year. It’s simply stunning. - The Sludgelord

Meatwound

https://www.facebook.com/MEATWOUND

According to news reports, Florida is a human wasteland that doesn’t give a shit about laws or decency. It is a swamp ridden cesspool of crime, drugs, carnies, and mutation. We have contributed much asshole culture and music to the world. Tampa specifically, has given the children Assück, Scrog, Death, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Obituary, Reversal of Man, Combatwoundedveteran, Nasty Savage and more. Seputura and Napalm Death came to record here. Cannibal Corpse moved here to live. The Brass Mug is here. Morrisound is here. There are no rules. We are ugly and primitive and short in the attention span. So, as old men, MEATWOUND comes from all that steaming shit pot of geographical music waste and the sounds of our collective childhoods. We grew up in the late 80s/early 90s on the first Earache bands, the first Relapse records, Tampa death metal, Public Enemy, Dischord shit, Steve Albini rampages, Wax Trax, Crass Records, drugs, skateboarding, horror movies, the usual.

Cemetery Piss

https://www.facebook.com/cemeterypiss

“Cemetery Piss started back in 2011 as a side project from Dirck and I's psych punk band Vincent Black Shadow," explains the band's Adam Savage. “Fueled by a mutual appreciation for cheap red wine, fine cured meats, Bathory, Darkthrone, Iggy & the Stooges we swiftly recorded our Rest In Piss demo along with the help of Akai, our drum machine. Now with four Vultures in our wake, with the addition of Rebecca Chernoff on bass and Derrick Hans on drums, we present the Order of the Vulture LP on Cricket Cemetery. We hope this altar of death, perversion and celestial desecration satisfies your lust! Fuck your way to hell!” - Decibel Magazine

Toxic Holocaust

https://www.facebook.com/ToxicHolocaust

TOXIC HOLOCAUST mutated into existence in 1999, when Joel Grind merged his love for classic punk and metal into his ideal band. Like his influences - Bathory, Venom, English Dogs, Possessed, Broken Bones - TOXIC HOLOCAUST featured blazing riffs, gravel-throated vocals, and a deadly fixation on the evil in man and a post-apocalyptic world. Grind wrapped all of these elements up with a DIY attitude. via Relapse Records

Danzig

https://www.facebook.com/Danzig

Glenn Danzig is a name that permeates, infects, and ultimately makes strong, the very soul of hard rock in the '90s. Through the legendary punk charge of his pre-Danzig outfits Misfits and Samhain, Danzig formed the backbone of today's mosh movement. Into the deep waves of the Danzig catalogue, and you've got a band that has created high-tension hybrids that are still being pondered and quietly adopted throughout today's metal community. Over eight million records sold, and Danzig is about to unleash a multi-media onslaught that will once again find disciples studying the master.

Corrosion Of Conformity

https://www.facebook.com/corrosionofconformity

Corrosion of Conformity are reuniting with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan for some long anticipated North American dates. The tour, which begins with several weeks of shows with Clutch and Mastodon comes after COC reunited for a series of well received European performance over the spring and summer of 2015. Other than a few surprise appearances, these shows were the first time Keenan has toured with the band since 2006, and was the first time the "Deliverance" lineup of the group had played together since 2001.

Dead Cross

https://www.facebook.com/deadcrossofficial

Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled turmoil—intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder Consisting of Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, Michael Crain, and Mike Patton, the impressive, expansive, and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music... but a resume isn’t necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on its own, speaks volumes with its multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs, and brutal rhythms

Thy Art Is Murder

https://www.facebook.com/thyartismurder

THY ART IS MURDER furiously charges once more unto the breach, clawing and spitting against the dying light and a seemingly inevitable collapse of existence. Dear Desolation, the Australian metal crew’s fourth and mightiest album, is a devastating blow equally against and embracing of a cataclysmic nihilism and all-out misanthropic warfare

Tony Mac Alpine

https://www.facebook.com/tonymacalpineofficial

At age 12, Tony picked up the guitar. He was later “discovered” in the pages of Guitar Player magazine by Mike Varney in 1984, and became a leader in the neoclassical guitar virtuoso movement of the mid to late 80s. MacAlpine was possibly the first new rock guitar instrumental artist of the 80s to break 100,000 units in the USA. His debut album Edge Of Insanity (1986) and sophomore release Maximum Security (1987) are cited by countless guitarists as major influences. Tony performed guitar and keyboards on Edge Of Insanity (with Billy Sheehan on bass and Steve Smith on drums), and all instruments (with the exception of drums by Deen Castronovo and Atma Anur) on Maximum Security, highlighting his musical dexterity. MacAlpine continued his extraordinary output into the 90s, with critically acclaimed releases Freedom to Fly (1992), Madness (1993), Premonition (1994) and Evolution (1995), which all remain among his discography’s best sellers.
