SCUM OF THE EARTH
The bloodiest band of heavy metal, grind-house grooving hellions in America, SCUM OF THE EARTH has returned !
The vile and despicable mob of macabre is fronted by former Rob Zombie guitarist RIGGS, whose artistry and musical vision birthed SCUM OF THE EARTH's debut in 2003, which hit hard on topics of lust, carnage, and debauchery strewn across a sanguinary soundscape, with cranium-cracking power and infectious rhythms. Guitar World described the signature SCUM OF THE EARTH sound as “…snarling vocals, grind-house guitars, futuristic dance grooves and B-movie sensibilities (and) raw, uncluttered power…” Outburn magazine hailed SLEAZE FREAK as “…choppy and addictively catchy industrial aggro.” Fans will be thrilled to know that nothing has changed in the years that followed and now, with THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, they sound as grittier as ever.
Did they come from another planet? Who knows. One look, one listen and it’s clear that anything’s possible at this point. Allegedly formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2004, the band BLUE FELIX are set to thrill in 2012 with a top secret tour in the works, an album out co-produced by the legendary Sid Wilson a.k.a #0/ DJ Starscream of the one and only Slipknot, a live show that has drawn comparison to everyone from Rob Zombie to (Hed)PE to Marilyn Manson to Gwar - bringing energy and theatrics the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
The six piece, named after ‘a certain dose of LSD that was particularly favoured by members of our group in the early days’ deliver a musical and visual experience something very eerily close to taking an acid dose earning them a cult following in the Midwest of loyal D.o.D’s – the Dogs of Doom – where psychedelic rock meets metal, warpaint, frenzied energy and a couple hits of its namesake – this is where you’ll find BLUE FELIX. An experience like no other. Check them out now.
THE CHAOS AGENT
The Chaos Agent have an explosive and energetic presence. When these guys hit the stage, the mood goes from party to pandemonium; zero to sixty – in one second. The vibe in the venue literally changes the moment they hit the stage. Taking in a show is an intense experience of high energy that mixes a perfect variation of heavy rock riffs with melodic, intensely catchy vocals. This gives the band a signature sound that, hands down, puts these guys in a league of their own. The Chaos Agent has made a huge dent in the Southwest Florida Music scene collectively as a band. Each member brings a plethora of experience and talent to the forefront, which has contributed greatly to their almost immediate recognition and success in the region. They have an impressive fan base locally, packing venues from front to back. The band gains an ever increasing amount of support each time they hit a new club or theater. Having commercial radio support from local South Florida stations along with plenty of internet chatter, this has been a major accomplishment for them so early in their career. Away-Team.com heralded The Chaos Agent with a shining review of a pre-release version of their E.P. saying, “…It’s not hard to imagine The Chaos Agent being played right next to your Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace favorites on every station on the planet! I detect a huge hit for sure....” The Chaos Agent has worked with well known and seasoned producer Paul Trust (Diecast, Atom Smash, ect..) for their upcoming release with Bellaphon Records. They are currently working with producer Matt LaPlant of Bieler Bros. Studios (Skindred, Barry Gibb, Methods Of Mayhem, ect.) for future releases. The Chaos Agent has shared stages with well known bands such as Skindred, Stabbing Westward, Flaw, Bullet Boys, Ventana, Hed P.E. and many others. They have also played an eclectic mix of shows including the Miami Music Festival.
