    About: 

    Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they've coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

    Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music that Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed would be proud of, and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

    With three full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title,” “Sandwich,” and their holiday album, “The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride” - the band released their latest record, “Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D,” in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

    After a successful 2013 that saw these touring ninja warriors hit the road for multiple shows on the 'Our Tour Can Beat Up Your Tour', 'Blow Your Fingers Off' summer tour, their late summer dates with American Head Charge plus appearances at summer fests that included Rockapalooza, A2 Fest, Breast Fest Biker Bash, and Dirtfest.  The band finally took a break in last months of the year and held a successful crowd funding campaign (thank you video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSeQHqMCfJI), where they are now currently in studio recording their follow up to 2011's 'Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs'.

  • SKINNER releases music video, CD art, and release date for “Sleepwalkers”

    "Sleepwalkers", the new video from SF Bay Area Power-Thrashers SKINNER, featuring Norman Skinner (Vocals), Robert Kolowitz (Guitars), Grant Kolowitz (Guitars), Alfred San Miguel (Guitars), Jim Pegram (Bass), & Noe Luna (Drums) can be seen below. The song is taken from SKINNER's upcoming full-length album of the same title, "Sleepwalkers", which will be released on May 6th, 2014 via Dead Inside Records.

    Watch the video below:

    SKINNER was formed from the fallout of the now defunct PowerThrash band Imagika. Throughout the band’s history Imagika released 7 albums total worldwide and toured extensively before calling it a day in 2010. Taking its name from their lead vocalist; SKINNER combines both the European Power Metal sound with the high energy Thrash Attack of the SF Bay Area.

    The video “Sleepwalkers” was directed by Mike Sloat (TestamentMachine Head) and depicts a struggle between two consciences. The first is a dream world where the individual sleepwalks through life doing as they are told completely unaware of the reality around them. The second is the horrible reality that not everything is as it seems and life can be hard and scary. The individual eventually is able to break free of the mold and think for himself.

    “Sleepwalkers” is the title track off SKINNER’s upcoming full-length effort. The CD was engineered by Steve Pelletier @ Hellfire Studios in San Jose, CA & mastered by Jamie King @ The Basement Recording NC.

    CD artwork courtesy of Jobert Mello of Sledgehammer Graphix can be seen below. Jobert has created artwork for bands such as Primal Fear, Sabaton, Shadowside & more.

    "Sleepwalkers" track listing:
    1. Firebird’s Lament
    2. Sleepwalkers
    3. Orphans Of Liberty
    4. Hell In My Hands
    5. Blind Led Blind
    6. Guilt-Ridden
    7. Breathe The Lie
    8. Bound
    9. Miss Agony
    10. The Breathing Room
    11. The Enemy Within

    Writing is well underway for SKINNER’s follow-up release. The band plans to begin recording this Fall.

  • Vancouver's TRIBUNE Announce 'CANADA SLAYS TOUR'

        Heavy metal brewers TRIBUNE are proud to announce their 2014 'CANADA SLAYS TOUR' kicking off in Kelowna, BC on April 3rd and will see the band trek as far East as Montreal, QC and return West to wrap up the tour in Nanaimo, BC on May 3rd. This is the band's second cross Canada Tour since 2012, when they toured the US and Canada in support of their album 'Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts'.

    "Greetings and salutations, friends of Tribune. We have news for you! After two years of musical scheming and dubious machinations, we've decided to serve you our eclectic brand of heavy metal in person. Tribune will be touring our newest album, 'Tales', across Canada. This means that we'll be stuffing our tall, sweaty selves into a van for the sake of your personal amusement. The new CD and Skeletal Lich Shirts are available, so come prepared if you want to put some gas into the tank of our voracious bandwagon. Her thirst is unending...We're calling this tour 'Canada Slays Tribune 2014'. It's all about our friends and fans, as if it never were before... Come on out and have a good time with us. Cheers! Terry Anderson (guitarist)"

    The Vancouver quintet unleashed their concept album 'Tales' this past October via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music. Inspired entirely by literature, 'Tales' features a wide array of influences, from Homer to Mary Shelley to H.P. Lovecraft, to more extreme influences such as Carcass, Death and At The Gates. The band's appetite for more melodic and more brutally heavy sounds to follow-up 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is demonstrated with their collusion of extremity and accessibility that bleeds into the melting pot and their fresh take of progressive death metal.

    Highlight: #11 on December 2013 Top 20 Loud Charts – Canadian College Radio – (Earshot)

    “Tribune first came to my attention with their free-willed debut, 2011′s Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts – and I’m happy to report they have expanded their unfettered approach even further. These talented Canadian draw influences and inspirations from all over the metal map, fusing extremity with accessibility, the traditional with the contemporary, sweet simplicity and exceptional complexity. What’s more, they have brought all the diversity together into one smooth, cultured, and satisfying whole. There is so much to enjoy on this thoughtfully presented and powerfully produced CD: well worth seeking out for those looking for some fresh, creative metal.” – Zero Tolerance Magazine

    “Lyrically, this is steeped in the lore of Lovecraft and Wells, but the music on offer goes through many changes, from raging trad and thrash to technical death metal, changing Tyr into Arsis, Slough Feg into The Black Dahlia Murder. With a production that is healthy and full of fire, ‘Tales’ is a must hear for those looking for something unique and unclassifiable in the metal world. A rare treat.” – Powerplay Magazine

    "Tales is one of the most distinctive records I’ve heard this year…undoubtedly delivers difference right off the bat, putting its best foot forward and defying expectations the moment it begins by spotlighting Bryan Baker’s unprecedented singing style.” – Angry Metal Guy

    "This is the release that I would expect Tribune to break through with; this is very strong material that is well written, interesting and technically excellent.” – Brutalism

    Canadian band, TRIBUNE, are an eclectic mix of different sounds and genres that result in a refreshing style that can only be heard to fully understand. The progressive quintet’s second full-length album, Tales, is a concept album based on the writings of renowned authors, like Lovecraft and Wells, but the music remains intensive and enjoyable." - Metal Observer

    “very now and then, a band comes around with a defined sound unlike anything previously heard by the listener. Such is the case with Tribune, and their latest release Tales.” – Kosher Metal

  • Montreal's MIRE Offer Free Download

     

    L-R -  Dave Massicotte: Guitar & Vocals | Stephane Boileau: Drums | J.P. LaChapelle: Lead Vocals | Bruno Chouinard: Guitar & Keys | Robbie O'Brien : Bass (Photo Credit: Carl Lessard)

        Montreal, QC's progressive rock / metal band MIRE are offering their latest track 'Tyrannicide' for FREE download from their upcoming album 'Inward/Outward' set for release on March 18th to follow up their 2010 self titled EP.

    "Implied by the name, 'Tyrannicide' is about exterminating the tyrant that rules you. Be it a cruel lover, an autocratic leader or dictatorial boss; the essence of Rock should liberate you to choose freedom and independence over indoctrination. Break out of your borders and blast past the bounds; burn the limitless fuel of your livelihood and beat your wings to fly. Earn your Name. Go Kill The Tyrant." comments vocalist JP LaChapelle.

    Two years in the making, Inward/Outward is a 10 track reflection of ideas flying every which way around the recording studio, ranging from cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan by guitarist Dave Massicotte.

     

    “We created this with our guts and have dared to explore a less common style of metal where the music is less obvious and sometimes requires the individual to have more than one listen before being able to grasp and really appreciate every musical element,” says guitarist Massicotte of the album. “From big chunky guitar to light piano melody, every song will take you on a different journey and set of emotions."

    “…newcomers Mire should be considered the heirs to the Tool throne with their latest record, Inward Outward is about as close to Tool as you can get without being Tool. Musically and sonically, Mire are spot-on with the psychedelic metal we’ve all become so accustomed to and you’re guaranteed to zone out listening to the record. If you were to get into the right state of mind before listening to the record, you’d be guaranteed a pleasant trip- or a really adventurous one. Vocally, you’d almost think you’re listening to Maynard James Keenan halfway through the record and you’re gonna lose yourself in it if you immerse yourself in the listening experience. Inward Outward is the perfect appetizer to the upcoming Tool album that may or may not get released in the near future and fans who are desperate for something fresh will feel right at home with Mire’s Inward Outward.” – The Front Row Report

    “This is an album of incredibly impressive music that is both haunting and uplifting in equal measure.  The soaring audio landscapes are multi-layered, and the experience of listening to this album is a real emotional journey.  It perfectly combines aggressive chunky guitars, melodic piano, and moments of all out angst and aggression. This is an album of hypnotizing prog-metal that just gets better with each and every listen.  If you’re a fan of progressive rock / metal, this is highly recommended! Score: 9.0 out of 10″ – All About The Rock

    “Fans of bands like Tool, A Perfect Circle, Deftones and Porcupine Tree should feel right at home listening to this quintet out of Montreal QC…MIRE’s vocalist, J.P. Lachapelle, delivers a wide range of dynamics and emotion in his singing, from soft whispered parts to full-on intense screams.  Like the bands that influenced them, MIRE has a firm grasp on the use of dynamics in their song writing, making each track more of a composition than just a song.  They skillfully weave a sonic tapestry full of rich textures and vibrant colors, soft piano melodies that stitch effortlessly into some serious headbanging guitar riffs.  Inward/Outward takes us on a journey through a musical landscape filled with compelling rhythmic patterns and thoughtful lyrical content…I think MIRE is a band to keep your eyes and ears on, and I look forward to seeing their territory grow.” – Rock Revolt Magazine

    “this progressive rock/heavy metal outfit has more then enough attitude to make a track like “Tyrannicide” sound legit while a more “commercial” number “Open Circle” could easily capture the attention modern rock radio listeners and catapult Mire all the way to the top! Helped out greatly by the powerful voice of lead singer J.P. Lachapelle, who, as far as rock front-man go, has the near-perfect blend of soulful-seduction, sexual charisma and street grit to cross the aisle between male and female listeners (something we’ve seen from Mick Jagger to Axl Rose!).” – Heavy Metal Time Machine

    "Their sound is hypnotizing and the lyrics are thought provoking." - Collectively Beautiful

    “Euphoria and excitation; the path chosen by these five musicians is exceptional. Very positive and down to earth” – Journal L’Exemplaire

    “They certainly leave their mark. They are a diamond in the rough. The perfect place to be. They certainly bring Prog Rock back and then push it forward to another dimension. Lead singer, J.P. has what it takes to rip your heart or leave a tear hanging desperately on the edge of your eyelash. MIRE’s album « Inward:Outward » is a damn good start.” – Curtains Up

  • THE GARDNERZ splits with vocalist

    The band have issued the following statement:

    We are sad to announce that our singer, Niclas Ankarbranth, has decided to step down. Niclas cited lack of time has his reason to leave and we are sad to see him go but we feel that there is no point on dwelling too much on this issue as Niclas is still a good friend and there is now hard feelings what so ever.

    We think Niclas wrote it very well himself in the statement he sent us:

    "Yo dudes, hope all is well with you guys. Unfortunately this mail is not all of joy as I have some bad news for you. Last year was a year filled with stress in my life. I did not always do what was best for me and carried too much on my shoulders and that took its toll on me. And this is something I had to learn from so 2014 is a year I have a lot of things going on in my private life as well and this means I have to prioritize differently in my life.

    So with sorrow in my heart I have to resign as the vocalist in the band.
    I have already talked with Wilhelm about this matter and I tell you guys as I told him. I have a lot of respect for you all, not only as musicians but also as individuals so I want to be straight with you about this as I do not resign because of any musical differences or grudges against anything. I assure you, it's because I have to prioritize differently from this time forward." Niclas Ankarbranth.


    So that leaves us with the vocalist spot open. We are looking for someone who:

    1- Preferably lives in Sweden or any of the Nordic countries (Denmark/Finland/Norway). Not a deal breaker if you live elsewhere if you are willing to travel or/and can record at home.

    2- Have vocalist experience, we are mainly looking for someone to growl. Clean vocals are appreciated but not required.

    3- Have the time to write and arrange vocals for our next album that will be recorded this year.

    4- Do not take himself too seriously, we are a easy going dudes, so no rock stars or truer than thou BS.

    5- Please apply with a short bio and samples of your abilities at wilhelm@thegardnerz.com
