Core Effect has created a monster this year. Its name is The Rubicon!
Formed in 2004, Core Effect is a Detroit based regional band whose music has been described as heavy, modern, hook driven rock with an experimental edge. The band has been compared to the likes of Seether, Foo Fighters, and Alice in Chains yet has carved out their own very distinct sound.

They have shared the stage with many national recording artists including Papa Roach, Seether, Red, Sick Puppies, Pop Evil, Saving Abel, Thousand Foot Krutch, Filter, 10 Years, Tantric, and Days of the New. They have adapted to the changing music market selling several thousands of downloads via iTunes, Rhapsody, and Amazon.
