Toronto is the setting for the most molten rock and metal scene in the western hemisphere. Meet DIEMONDS: the city's hungriest band, clawing their way out of the underground with their saccharine-and-daggers hard rock. Fronted by rock's most dangerous deity Priya Panda, the band shines on stage, commanding an audience all night long. Diemonds aren't through until every single crowd member has had a real rock n' roll experience.
With "In the Rough," a CD/cassette release that's already in the hands of every headbanger in the know, buzz on the upcoming release is at a fever pitch. On the cusp of releasing the hotly anticipated 'The Bad Pack," Diemonds will take their mean, tough and infectious sound on the road in 2012. You can expect big things from the young band who have a music video in rotation across Canada called "Take on the Night, and already toured extensively in the US, Canada and India, without the backing of a record label.
Having gained local recognition and sponsorship from heavyweights like Jagermeister and Pabst Blue Ribbon for their bombastic live performances, Diemonds have been fortunate enough to play opening slots for hard rock heroes like Slash, LA Guns, Michael Monroe, Teenage Head, and many more.

CRüELLA was formed in early 2012 by four women with a passion for heavy rock-n-roll. Lead vocalist Cindy Lynne had previously been in Mötley Crüe tribute bands but none of them had other female members. When she met bass player "Bassy" Stacy Maisenbach, they found that they both shared a love for '80's hard rock. They knew what must be done... They recruited drummer Windy Wild and the search was on for a guitarist that fit the bill. After months of searching, they finally found guitar Mary Cary and Crüella was born. The first time the four girls rehearsed together, it was instant magic. They knew right away that this would be the ultimate all-female Mötley Crüe tribute. Buzz about the band built quickly and they started getting show offers before their second practice. Crüella is now playing shows throughout the Bay Area and beyond and are being met with great enthusiasm by Crüe fans and anyone else that appreciates women who really rock and look great doing it!
ANGELS OF VICE is a hard hitting, high-energy juggernaut of a rock band birthed in the San Francisco Bay fog. AOV has been breathing life into the local scene since their inception in 2009 with growing steam and fervor every year. In a very short span they've managed to headline and co-headline such notable venues as The Great American Music Hall, The Bottom of the Hill, New Parish, and The Roxy Theater down in Hollywood.
Al Dizon, Marck Raymundo, and Jayson De La Cruz were a tight knit group of musicians from a former band looking for a new sound and heavier presence. They first approached Lisa Mongelli for her thick sounding John Bonham drumming, unlike many other female drummers in her arena. Anthony Nielsen completed the set with his devil-may-care charisma and drive to vocally challenge himself. Once the pieces were in place, there was no stopping their supercharged manic energy.
The most recent achievements of Angels of Vice include a full length album entitled All Good Things and a successful release of their single, We Are The 99. The latter was recorded as an anthem for the current Occupy movement sweeping the world. AOV wants to give a voice to those who are disaffected, disillusioned, and wanting to celebrate life regardless.
