NIHILIST: In the spring of 2003 Nihilist evolved into a metal trio forgetting everything and everyone left behind; to create a new aggressive sound of metal that you'll hear today. "By the time finals had begun I was smiling because I had just been treated to a blistering taste of metal provided by north county San Diego's very own Nihilist."(automatic magazine). Mixing metal, thrash, and good old skool rock'n roll, this original blend of high energy music gets you out of your seat, banging your head and pumping your fist."The three peice wins the why are you playing in this little bar when you should be playing with big metal acts award." (Zakk Jones powerslave.com). All three members grew up in the same town, went to the same high school, and resided in the same nieghborhoods. It's only fitting that they would come to gather to create a wirlwind of metal known as Nihilist. Nihilist is: Loren Tipton-Bass/Vocals,"What makes this band is Loren Tipton just wait till you hear him growl." (Troy Johnson FoxRox). Joe Walker-Lead Guitar,"The leads are quick, captivating and filled a metal thirst" (Zakk Jones). Sean Elg-Drums,"Drummer Sean Elg must have sold his soul to satan to play like he does." (Zakk Jones). Taking their home town by storm, it's only a matter of time tilll they take yours. They pride themselves on their air tight performances and their skull crushing originals. "The musicianship is lock step assault."(Troy Johnson). The band agrees that practice is not an option it's an addiction, and metal isn't a form of music it's a religion. Next time you hear the fans screaming Nihilist, take cover. Cause when the bomb drops there will be nowhere to hide, and when the sound hits the crowd, the chaos ignites.
WITCHAVEN: There's a threat in the world today. A threat to our way of living, a threat to our society, and maybe even a threat to our very existence. And what is this threat? WITCHAVEN. An organization made up of highly motivated, extremely aggressive punks turned metalheads with one single objective, world domination, or in their words "Creating a world wide Witchaven". Vowing to make every man woman and child bow down to the "W", a hand sign used by their members to show affiliation. We have confirmed reports that "W"'s have been appearing on the various monuments and historical landmarks throughout the world. There are also talks of Mount Rushmore being renamed Mount Witchaven,with America's forefathers being replaced by the WITCHAVEN forefathers, Henry(vox/guitar), Erik(lead guitar), Mark (bass), and Lerby(drums). When confronted with these allegations they released a statement saying...quote... "Bitch, you know the side, world motherfucking wide."....... unquote
SPEEDWOLF: If technical metal and meandering psych/prog have you looking for something more straightforward, Speedwolf is the answer. This Denver 4-piece is a no-frills thrash/punk assault on all things ironic. While many of their more successful peers are kitschy or disingenuous, Speedwolf has the same kind of raw, kinetic energy you find on Iron Maiden's Soundhouse Tapes or The Misfits' Bullet 7. Reed Brummel's Lemmy/Danzig vocals perfectly complement the old-school tone present throughout. "Speedwolf" sets a creepy horror vibe before jumping into a crusty-d-beat attack. Brummel channels Venom's Cronos with raspy vocals and proto-kvlt riffs, this band could easily have took their place in the Black Metal sessions.
MIDNIGHT EAGLE: After a long mead bender, almighty Thor vomited for a year; Midnight Eagle was born. Picking up the slack where Turbonegro went Cock Rock, we have this Drink N Roll Party band blazing the same path as Gang Green. If a keg stand was a band, you would have Midnight Eagle. San Diego, don't be a motherf#cker and say thank you.
HOLY TYRANT: IN 2006 HOLY TYRANT WAS STARTED AS ANOTHER PROJECT THAT UNFORTUNATELY, BEFORE ACHIEVING ITS FULL POTENTIAL, WAS SUMMONED BACK TO HELL, FOR IT WAS FAR TO EVIL FOR THE EARS OF MAN. THEN, IN 2006 AGAIN, LAZARUS CREPT FROM HIS STINKING TOMB AND HORRIFIED THE WORLD. WHEN JESUS SAW WHAT HE HAD DONE, LAZARUS (LEE/REED) WAS QUICKLY BANISHED BACK INTO HIS DISGUSTING LAIR OF LEPROSY TO ROT FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY. THEN IN 2010, USING SPARE PARTS FROM OTHER ROTTEN CORPSES SUCH AS WACO F#CK'S HEAD EXPLODING BASS BOHEMETH (ANDREW) AND IMPALOR'S BLOODTHIRSTY AX MAN (ALEX), WE, HOLY TYRANT, WERE SEWN BACK TOGETHER AND RELEASED AS A SICKENING MUTATION UPON THE EARTH TO ONCE AGAIN, RADICALLY RAPE MANKINDS EAR PUSSIES AND ANNOY OUR NEIGHBORS WITH OUR MARSHALLS. WE RAISE OUR GLASSES TO ALL THE MAD MEN CHOSEN BY THE VALKYRIES THEMSELVES TO GO THRASHING INTO THE FOG OF WAR AGAINST THE TYRANNY OF THE HOLY LIARS. SKAL!!!!
