    Half Past Dawn Established in Ames Iowa, Half Past Dawn’s roots form the band’s metal backbone deriving from artists such as Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne, while maintaining a mainstream rock forefront. The signature sound boils from a melting pot of Shinedown, Saving Abel, Black Stone Cherry, and twisted and molded into an unrivaled alternative metal style. Reed hales from the Midwest mixed with different influences to bring together a great rock sound, high energy show, and an all out good time give us a listen you won't regret it. Black Star Alliance is a high energy hard rock band formed in Oskaloosa Ia that has taken its tried and true rock n' roll roots and infused it with punk and metal to create a sound that is truly in your face. With screaming guitars, powerful vocals and an unrelenting rhythm section combined with a stage presence that must be seen, Black Star Alliance is a powerhouse of sight and sound.

Q: r u guys selling albums yet?
A: Not yet but it is definitely on the horizon. We are currently working on recording a full length album, as we do everything ourselves its a bit time consuming. We talked about an EP but decided to go for a full length.
