Today Is The Day

Led by visionary frontman Steve Austin, Today Is The Day reigns as one of the most unique and influential bands of the past two decades. The band’s violent and anthemic style, which blends metal, noise, psychedelia, and rock, has won worldwide acclaim ever since the debut album, Supernova, first hit in the early 90s. Eight studio albums have been released on such labels as Amphetamine Reptile and Relapse—including modern-day classics like Willpower, Temple of the Morning Star, and In the Eyes of God—and the band’s changing lineup has included such musicians as Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, who would later go on to form Mastodon.. Today Is The Day has toured the world…

Black Tusk

Emerging onto the metal scene from Savannah, GA in 2005, Black Tusk specialize in a brand of sludgy metal they call “swamp metal.” The band, consisting of members Andrew (guitar/vocals), Athon (bass/vocals), and James (drums/vocals), combines the drive of fellow Savannah residents Baroness with the thick and murky stoner sludge of High on Fire. In 2005 the band self-released its first demo, Demos and the Demons, as well as the album When Kingdoms Fall, which was released on Wrecked Signal.

KEN mode

“Veteran Winnipeg noise-rock trio KEN mode’s Kurt Ballou-produced fourth album Venerable is one of the best records of 2011, bar none…From opener “Book Of Muscle” to closer “Make Shark,” KEN mode mix AmRep toughness with heavy, doom-y melodies and angular, chiseled hardcore that pummels as well as it sticks easily, comfortably in your head…Think David Yow doing crunches, Unsane with more swing, a dirtier Helmet, a younger/hungrier (and Canadian) Today Is The Day.” – Stereogum.com

“As I said in 2008, KEN Mode rules. If Unsane spent less time at Swans shows and more at hardcore matinees, they’d probably rip out noisecore obliteration like 2008′s Mennonite and…

Fight Amp

Fight Amp hail from West Berlin, New Jersey, and their harsh, unforgiving brand of post-hardcore harks back to the Amphetamine Reptile label’s influential ‘90s roster, with additional nods to noise-rock, sludge, punk rock and metal rounding out the picture. Steeped in the hardcore ethic through and through, band members Mike, Jon, Rebecca and Hissem, reject last names out of hand, and recorded several independent singles and mini releases leading up to their full-length debut for Translation Loss Records, 2007’s Hungry for Nothing.
