Versa Emerge

vice versa: with the order changed : with the relations reversed
emerge: to rise from an obscure or inferior position or condition Through endless member metamorphosis and what seemed to be a constant subjection to the opposite forces of the universe, VersaEmerge (now graced for the first time with a solid line-up) is finally becoming the band, and people, they've worked so vigorously and tirelessly to become.

The Sedan Vault

‘We spread communism by the gallon of gasoline.’ It could be a quote from the German militant group RAF but it is the first line of Vanguard, the second album of experimental rock band The Sedan Vault. This new record shows a developed group that goes beyond the usual punk and rock influences. Vanguard has got groove, harmony, songs and punch line lyrics. The Sedan Vault hail from the city of Sterrebeek in Belgium.

Silverstein is a 5-piece rock band from Burlington, Ontario, Canada; formed in 2000. The band name was taken from the famous children's author Shel Silverstein. After several lineup changes, the band acquired Billy Hamilton, a local fan who learned of the band's need for a bassist on the Internet message board "The 905 Board" (an Ontario area outreach board which used to be for local musicians). In Christmas of 2001, he joined the band after Shane Told helped him learn the music for the songs. Following a rehearsal on Boxing Day (December 26) in 2001, he officially debuted with Silverstein.

There is more than one artist with this name: 1) Upon returning to Melbourne after 67 shows across Europe and Japan, Heirs commenced work on their second album, Fowl. With the baton of core song-writing being handed from drummer Damian Coward to guitarist, Brent Stegeman, Heirs turned their attention toward their electronic underbelly, honing in on the industrial vapour and blackened ambience that permeated their debut, Alchera, distilling the underlying sense of melody with an arresting sense of dread.

The Matador

Since their inception, The Matador have continued to cast themselves apart from the Australian mainstream of heavy music by pushing the boundaries of sound experimentation. Their progressive and dark undertoned layers of music range from down tempo, complex soundscape arrangements to epic, driving walls of earth crushingly heavy guitars, drums and vocals. With an imminent EP release on the way, expect to see The Matador continue to push these boundaries.

City of Ships

City of Ships is an active three-piece progressive / "post-" influenced rock band originally from Pensacola, Florida, United States formed in 2005. Members now live in various states of subletting and couch-surfing between Boston and Florida. Currently recording a new album in Brooklyn, NY with producer Andrew Schneider (Pelican, Cave-In, Daughters, Rosetta) set for release early summer of 2011.
