DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT (UK)
Blackened, brutal, abrasive, and truly extreme metal from across the pond for only their 2nd US Tour ever. The elusive Dragged Into Sunlight possess an increasing number of members, known by their initials.
Having gained notoriety for their exclusive, vicious and ritualistic live performances, Dragged Into Sunlight has established an ever-growing presence throughout Europe, Japan and the U.S.
Denver, Colorado’s PRIMITIVE MAN unleash a filthy, malignant maelstrom of blackened doom on their debut album ‘SCORN’. Thrillingly misanthropic in their approach, PRIMITIVE MAN drench their post-apocalyptic vision of the world in waves of feedback, pummeling guitars and hopelessly frightening vocals. This is grade-a soul-annihilating music of the darkest order.
Cult Leader are the next evolutionary leap forward for three-quarters of Gaza, arguably one of the best metallic bands of the last decade. After the early 2013 dissolution of the aforementioned band, remaining members Michael Mason, Casey Hansen, and Anthony Lucero were joined by bassist Sam Richards to form this brand new beast.
The ultra aggressive, ultra political, metal hardcore band, Architect, from Syracuse, New York began in 2005 out of the remnants of Found Dead Hanging and Word as a Virus. Combining the intensity and sounds of Coalesce, Converge, Crowbar, Deadguy and All Else Failed, Architect released their debut record “All is not Lost” in 2007, and their follow up “Ghost of the Saltwater machines” in 2008, both on Black Market Activities. Since then, the members have gone on to do other projects such as GhostxShip, Bleak, How to Disappear Completely, and SGNL SRND, but have returned to crush skulls, spout diatribes and begin sculpting a new record.
MEEK IS MURDER
In the beginning it was one boy noise. Founding member Keller took the punk DIY ethic to exciting and idiotic new heights… cut out the middle men (record labels, managers, studio engineers, even band members). No friends. No label. Just a microphone and too much free time. Enter “Mosquito Eater.”
A few friends and a few more microphones later, now its a band, playing in a lot of basements. They recorded an album like a team of actual humans. “Algorithms” was recorded by Kurt Ballou at Godcity and was released by MetalSucks digitally and Granite House on vinyl.
There was also that time they made an EP about sci-fi and called it “Into The Sun Where It Falls Off The Sky.” Jesse from The #12 Looks Like You produced it with Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios. The cover has a Delorean flying over the dystopian LV-426 landscape chasing the Firefly-class ship Serenity. If you know what any of that means, you are a nerd.
They recorded a new “full-length” at Godcity called EVERYTHING IS AWESOME NOTHING MATTERS. It came out on 10/22/13 and it sounds gross.
Ithaca experimental metal favorites Black Table return with “Obelisk”, their follow up to the lauded “Sentinel”, well underway.
Bleak will once again take the US by storm, kicking off at One Fest. Chaotic, volume-worship heaviness from Syracuse, NY, blurring the lines of hardcore, noise, and death metal. Just fucking heavy.
“Erik Burke and Dan Lilker are basically Rochester royalty due their involvement in bands like Sulaco, Nuclear Assault, Anthrax and Napalm Death (with whom Erik has been touring recently), but they’ve hardly been resting on their laurels. Blurring is the most recent doomsday device from these metal stalwarts, marrying nauseatingly complex riffs with panicked, spastic vocals. They’d be an impressive enough band if their members consisted of fresh-faced upstarts, but the fact that Blurring is more or less a Rochester metal veteran supergroup makes them all the more inspiring.” – Noisey
Brutal hardcore punk from Buffalo (former/current members of INERDS, Human Touch, etc)
Brand new grind trio of Katerina Economou, Jesse Fuentes (Creator|Destroyer, ex-Kill The Client), Vii Caso (Hiroshima Vacation, ESFP, etc.) . Debut track out via the IU Vol 2. comp!
Human Overdose started in the bowels of Binghamton, NY in early 2015. We had all been in different bands locally for some years and wanted to get something different happening. What started as Dave (drums/vocals) and myself, Dennis (bass/vocals) messing around, turned into an actual thing with the addition of Musty on guitar / vocals. Things started fleshing themselves out and we released our demo in October 2015. We all find ourselves aligned with a certain common interest musically. We wanted to present the elements of our surroundings and the environment we grew up in, Rod Serling’s true Twilight Zone, Binghamton, NY. At the time of this writing, we are gearing up to record for a split with Street Feet coming out this spring and writing for a full length we hope to release this fall.
Motorcharged Metal Punk from CNY.
Ithaca based experimental noise musician delving in the exploration of self through sound. Tapes, rhythm machines, feedback and amplified resonant objects make up the sound collage and disjointed pop-like pieces that bear the term ‘misery electronics’. Absence tethers, waits, then pulls.
NY’s one man hardcore/pv/noise machine. see and believe.
I am Sparklebomb and I want to sit at your feet and play some old space songs and then play some new space jams from my new EP, Funeral Beats.
Licker is the solo world of John Schoen – long time sound creator/manipulator best known as the helmsman of Rochester New York’s psychedelic noise champions ‘Pengo’ – one of the most musically wayward, brazenly diverse groups to emerge from America’s late 90s subculture. Notoriously difficult to pin down, Licker finds Schoen stubbornly refusing to adhere to any particular generic forms each live event channelling different strains of music/noise/performance.
