Posts Tagged ‘Unsigned Band Of The Week’

a4202439289_10It’s been a few since the last Unsigned Band Of The Week post here on the blog so for this week I wanted to return with a bang. Sometimes when I am searching for music, I am always looking for something new to me, something that is going to grab my attention and draw me to it. I honestly believe that I may have found that with this week’s featured Unsigned band in Charleston, South Carolina’s own darkened hardcore/noise band Plagues. I literally discovered the band with a search of all the metal/hardcore scenes all across the country. I am trying to cover a different band from a different state every week and I am going to be honest their name and the description/label of their music is what caught my attention. Then you listen to the band’s music and it’s pure unadulterated mayhem from beginning to end and it sounds fresh and new for me. If I was in South Carolina right now, I would be checking these guys out in a New York minute. The band just released a new EP last week called Far From The Tree and I have it for you to check out down below. Check it out and download it. If you want to know more about the band like when they are playing, etc then click here for their Facebook profile.


gQ_phVKiIt has been quite some time since we last did an Unsigned Band Of The Week and we are trying to get back into our groove here with a new band every week. Every once in a while when you are searching for a band to cover for the Unsigned Band Of The Week, one will either stumble right in front of you or somehow they find you. That is definitely the case with this week’s band that found me on my Twitter page (@ERaticWanderer) which is why I chose them. The band I am talking about of course is Phoenix, Arizona’s own The Jasons. The band can be best described (according to them) as music for the zombie apocalypse because let’s face it if you’re still alive and the proverbial sh** has hit the fan in the world then what better music than this while you’re slaying zombies. The thing that attracted me the most besides their cool description for the band is the influences that they listed ranging from Black Label Society to High On Fire, Mastodon, and even The Sword. These are all bad ass bands that started somewhere just like The Jasons. Check the band’s track Seeker below, but if you want more information then be sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

a3459752772_16Every once in a while when you are searching for a band to cover for the Unsigned Band Of The Week, one will either stumble right in front of you or somehow they find you. That is definitely the case with this week’s band that found me on my Twitter page (@ERaticWanderer) which is why I chose them. Last week we were in Kentucky checking out a band and this week we are heading west to Little Rock, Arkansas to check out a very cool and bad ass Progressive Deathcore trio in The Lucid Archetype. The band has a new EP out called 2.0 which you can check out on Spotify which is first for me and any of the artists that I have covered for this particular piece. The track we are checking out from the EP is the song Causality which showcases exactly what the band is about. The band has all of the elements that make up a Deathcore band with the guttural screams, but the music is absolutely amazing. The track starts off like a bomb as the music just explodes into your speakers with the hammering riffs before it all of sudden changes in tempo with the clean guitars and vocals showing the band has layers to it, but never fear cause things get heavy once again. The band is super talented and one of those bands to definitely look out for because they may not be signed right now, but they definitely deserve to be. Check them out on Spotify, bandcamp, Facebook, and Twitter to stay up to date with everything they do.

We are back on the tour bus and we are leaving Georgia and we are heading to the blue grass state of Kentucky for this week’s Unsigned Band Of The Week and for good reason. The band that we are covering this week is currently ranked the number one band in Kentucky on ReverbNation and they are coming to us from Danville, Kentucky, we are talking about Creature Of Exile. If you love old school Thrash Metal mixed with elements of Death Metal and Groove then this is the band for you because that is what Creature Of Exile bring to the table. At one time, the band beat out two nationally signed acts in Puddle of Mudd and Halestorm when they finished number three on Killer Radio’s top five of 2012 meaning these guys are the real deal. The song I chose for you guys today is the title track from the band’s newest album Age of Annihilation which by the way is out now. The song is just pure intensity right from the start with the razor fast shredding by John Massey and Jerrod Messick who have the task of combining their influences into the track which they do brilliantly. You can hear the elements of thrash incorporated with the death metal playing and the blast beats from drummer Eric Lyons and those awesome guttural vocals from Johnny Martin. This is definitely a band you want to check out and hopefully someone snags them up real soon. Give them a like on Facebook and check out their Reverbnation page while you’re at it.

We are back on the tour bus and we are leaving Delaware and we are heading to the Empire State of the South in Georgia for this week’s Unsigned Band Of The Week. The band we are checking out today comes to us from the ATL and they have one of the coolest names I have seen for a band in As Animals Eat My Insides. The band explains their name on their Facebook page saying, “The meaning behind our name: We live in a world which represents the “animals” who try and consume us with violence, greed, despair, and power. Stay strong and never give into a world that will try to change who you are.” The track from the band that we are checking out today is the song Daydreamer which comes from the band’s previous disc Devoured. The music is intense and in your face as the band approaches with a very intense style of metal and hardcore that is guaranteed to start a pit in a heartbeat. I love Jeremy Bond’s vocals in this track and how he goes from screaming to a deep guttural growl to singing all in the same track. This is definitely a band to check out and to let all of you know that band is gearing up to release a new disc entitled Ellipsis. So to find out more info about the actual release date and other info like touring, visit their Facebook page here. Check out Daydreamer below:

It has been quite some time since we last did the Unsigned Band Of The Week post here on Moshpits and Movies. So with things calming down a bit more, we are going to be heading back on our tour bus and we’ll hit the states that we haven’t yet. The last time we checked in somewhere it was in Iowa, but this week we are heading to Delaware to check out a band that we think is pretty bad ass. When we think of Delaware I immediately think of the film Wayne’s World because there isn’t a whole lot known about the state. What we do know about it is Fisher’s popcorn and Rehoboth Beach, but what you should get to know is Houston, Delaware metal band Beyond The Barrier. Beyond The Barrier is a band that just brings pure intensity whether it’s the technical prowess of guitar players Grant Dawson and Ryan Evans or the the deep guttural vocals of Jay Evans. These guys are awesome and the track that I provided for you guys is their lyric video for the track Become One. If the Thunderous machine gun like drum beats don’t get you, then hopefully the elements I described before will. They are the real deal and they are a band that should be taken seriously. Check them out on Facebook or their Youtube page for more info and stuff.

It has been quite some time since the last Unsigned Band Of The Week post and things have been crazy which is the reason why. We are going to try and pick up where we last left off with this blog and we are leaving the headquarters and we are going to Des Moines, Iowa which is the home of Slipknot and Seth Rollins. Although, we are not there for them because we are checking out local metal band Dead Horse Trauma which the band describes themselves as, “a 5-headed war machine dedicated to infecting the masses with procedures and tactics used by our world to feed us the lies we are spoon-fed since before we can crawl. It’s the exposure of the perversity and falsities we are subliminally directed by. It’s your wake-up call, or the means to your end.” The track I chose for you guys to check out from them is the song Left Unsaid which is melodic, but it’s got some serious balls to it at the same time. I love how vocalist Eric Davidson is able to be melodic with his vocals as well as having the intense screaming vocals. It adds to the dimensions of the band for sure. Check out the band’s track below and if you want more info about them be sure to check them out on Twitter, Facebook, and their own site
