“The vision of a valkyrie and her hawk adorn the front cover, shining through a gray scale landscape. It works well as a metaphor of this bands sound.
The Armiger is a band worth watching out for. Emerging from Chino Hills, they provide a solid Alternative Metal sound with Heavy Metal, Stoner Metal, and Hard Rock elements in the mix. This is the kind of stuff that could potentially make the big time with some extra polish.
Their new, self-titled record is catchy to say the least. Blending an old school feel with new energy, it might just capture your attention. The price might catch your attention as well. The Armiger are offering up the album for a "name your price" download on Bandcamp!”

"The Armiger dish out commanding alternative metal that sounds like Alice in Chains meets Black Label Society"

"The Armiger is an alternative rock band from Chino Hills, California. They just put out their first self titled release which is 9 tracks of pretty solid material, plus they have a great cover of an Alice in Chains track. Check it out below, as always its free but I feel like this is one of the bands that we should all be supporting."

“The Armiger, a Alternative Metal band out of Chino Hills is a band worthy of taking the stage at HOB. Hearing them was like a melting together of Alice In Chains and Black Label Society rolled into a delightfully tasty metal dish. They brought people to the floor and kept them there the whole set. Part of their appeal was the energy they had on stage that spilled out into the crowd, literally, as lead singer Wes Bracamontes jumped off the stage and into the mosh pit to finish off their set.”
Melissa Anderson - Rockwell UnScene - Examiner.com
"With a hybrid genre concerning both metal and rock you might find that The Armiger takes direct action to take up arms. No, not weaponry (although its mission for every gig is to “melt faces”), but that of the musical sort, resulting in a style that is just the right amount of change you’ve been looking for."
