Toxic Holocaust are a punk-inflected death metal band from Portland, OR, associated with Relapse Records. Influenced by hardcore punk and proto-death metal bands of the 1980s such as Discharge, Hellhammer, Bathory, Venom, and Possessed, Joel Grind founded Toxic Holocaust in 1999. He originally wrote and recorded all of the band's music himself, and after a couple demo releases (Radiation Sickness, 1999; Critical Mass, 2002), he made his official full-length album debut as Toxic Holocaust with Evil Never Dies (2003). Two years later, after some touring with a hired backing band, Grind released the second Toxic Holocaust album, Hell on Earth (2005), which once again he wrote and recorded by himself. The album notably features cover art by Ed Repka, known for having created iconic covers for classic metal albums by Megadeth, Death, and others. Extensive touring followed, along with a recording contract with America's premier death metal label, Relapse Records.

THE KRUM BUMS  Formed in early 2000 in Austin, Texas, The KrumBums featured Trae Martinez on guitar, J.V. Krum on bass, Chuck Bum on drums, and the larger than life Dave Tejas at center stage. Starting their assault on the Lone Star State with a handful of instant "classics," four years of ear splitting guitars and hammering rhythms have seen The Bums mature into a full blown modern hardcore attack that is reaching the rest of the world. Early 2003 brought second guitarist Justin Junk on board, and later that year Chuck said his farewells, leading to the addition of Ricky Felon on drums.

Besides playing countless Texas shows, big or small, city or town, The KrumBums have logged their share of miles and flat tires on the open highways. Tours with Cut Throat Hoods, Bob Murder and Strap Onz took the boys throughout the South and Midwest in 2002, and 2003's follow-up tour with Strap Onz along the West Coast and through the Southwest even included a stint supporting Slaughter and the Dogs.

HOLY GRAIL-Originally known as Sorcerer, Holy Grail formed when three members of the band White Wizzard decided to go out on their own. The band is helmed by vocalist James Paul Luna, a native of Van Halen's hometown, Pasadena. A classically trained singer whose monster pipes have drawn comparisons to Sebastian Bach, Rob Halford and Ronnie James Dio, Luna was also recently heard providing vocals in a Gamestop commercial for the new video game, "Brutal Legend."

He's backed by virtuoso guitarists Eli Santana and James J. LaRue, whose interweaving shredding and riffing harkens to an imaginary time when Yngwie Malmsteen and Marty Friedman jammed together. Tyler Meahl and Blake Mount form the thunderous rhythm section whose power could shake the foundations of Valhalla itself. In the short few months since the band's inception, they've received a full-page feature in the L.A. Weekly, toured the Western U.S. and signed to Prosthetic Records, who released their debut EP, Improper Burial, in late 2009.

NIHILIST:
A power trio of fast double bass, thundering bass lines, and screaming guitar solos, with vocals along the line of Slayer or early Metallica. Keep Thrashing. Play it Loud.
