Raven Black Night

It was late 1999 in Adelaide, Australia when these four warriors of the night met. Without speaking they knew what had to be achieved. In their minds they had a plan to bring the world sounds of love, hate, war, peace, doom and destruction. There was the White Knight, with his powerful vocals and his soul bleeding guitar rifs and leads. He would be the one who leads these four into battle. Next is the Duke, who could keep the ancient beats with meticulous timing for the musical mayhem that would follow.

August Burns Red

There are a galaxy's worth of metal bands active today, but stare at all of those stars long enough and some lines start to form; everything starts to take shape. The Constellations begin to bloom. Just three years ago, Lancaster, PA's August Burns Red were, to the naked eye, just another young band jockeying for position in the modern metal scene. Then came Messengers, the band's 2007 full-length release for Solid State Records, and a new front-runner emerged.

Kingdom of Sorrow

Boasting a line up that includes members of such influential metal bands as Hatebreed, Down, Crowbar, and more, Kingdom Of Sorrow has arrived to stake its claim as the band that lives up to its super group status. The seeds of Kingdom Of Sorrow were sown over a decade ago when a 16 year old Hatebreed front man (and avid Crowbar fan) Jamey Jasta introduced himself to Down/Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein at a show at Pearl Street in Northampton, Massachusetts.
