ARTIST SUMMARY Genres: Metal / rockLabel: "MAX-METAL-RADIO" ARTIST BIO --ALL TRACKS ARE PROTECT BY CREATIVE COMMONS-- Windfall born in 2003 with the artistic union of Matteo Bresci at drums,Lorenzo Nardi at guitar and Marco Patracchini at bass.The original purpouse was playing a very ritmich melodic metal with some influences of sonata arctica, Stratovarius,Edguy and Helloween. Since the beginning we left aside covers and we started immediately to compose.In 4 years we have written many tracks and covers,but the absence of a voice that fits with the songs,started being a big problem,also considering our will to debut. Fortunately,in December 2007,Marco found out on the web an announce of a girl who was searching for a group,possibly a metal one:she was Francesca Tedeschi,and a test was enough to understand that she was the one we were looking for. By now,we started with one step ahead.reviewing all we had already done,trying to fit that with the new voice. After few months of organization we decided to look for the element we always wished: a keyboarder! We found out indirectly Tommaso Buzzegoli,and after some proofs we decided to baptize him as new element of Windfall. This is the “once upon a time”. Regarding the style,as we have already said,is certainly metal,but of wich style,we don’t even know it. We like epic line,but scratch and stopping guitars too,and obviously double pedal. Even our lyrics range from life experience to total escape in classic epic and power songs. We offer and exciting music,sometimes rude,sometimes soft,both for whom is used to this tipe of music,and both for whom will listen for the first time. We trust in it,and the main push arrive from our fans,who follow us during the gigs. Road will be so long and hard,but we really want to make it,and by now we have had positive feedbacks…

Here is what some have said about Core Device's 2006 debut CD, "Our Fellowship Eternal,"
"This is Core Device's debut CD, amazing not only for a first but at all. We can't wait till their newest cd is ready, it's coming soon." (JPD Power Brokers)
"Core Device has been around for awhile now, but Our Fellowship Eternal is their first full-length release. Judging by the packaging, which is quite good, this is obviously a self-released disc encapsulating the classic American style power metal fury of bands like Barlow-era Iced Earth, Nevermore and perhaps the first two Fates Warning albums with John Arch. Vocalist Daniel Dunphy's voice certainly shares common traits with that of the amazing Matt Barlow... Out of the eleven songs, it could be roughly described that about the first couple of tracks are more thrash-induced pieces, akin to classic 80's old school thrash...Iced Earth's trademark galloping riff style is heard aplenty on the more modern "Hell and Torment", while "Stranger" is another diverse cut with subtle keyboards, great twin guitar leads, and a deep contrast between thrash-laden and atmosphere-laced passages...Do yourself a favor, buy it."

Part Musician part farmer, total nutcase... this is putting it mildly.
Morbid Pitbull or Pritham dsouza, who everyone calls Pittu or P2, is a die hard metal head ever since he heard iron Maiden way back in 1985 at the tender age of 5
Picked up the guitar out of sheer frustration at life and surroundings when he was 10 years old and was heavily influenced by the classic rock/metal scene primarily by bands like Iron maiden, Judas Priest, Van halen, Metallica etc as he had access to only mainstream metal bands.
Played his first show with "the Outlaws" in 1996 and in 1999 formed "Phallusy" with like minded musicians in Bangalore and recorded 3 tracks on a pro-cdr release with fellow musicians and friends KRYPTOS, THREINODY AND MYNDSNARE on a compilation titled "HeadBangalore" which is now rare.
As a solo artist he recorded and released his first e.p. ‘The Farmer’ (2000) which had 11 tracks of blistering NWOBHM-influenced heavy metal. Was offered a record deal and a chance to record the same e.p. with vocals and live drums by Gamalzagoth, vocalist of the cult German black metal band Moonblood

PHASE REVERSE It’s a winter’s afternoon October 2007. The three of them meet at John’s recording studio, and they decide to join their forces. It was clear from the very beginning that there was chemistry between them, and everything seemed to be very promising. John was the part of the puzzle that was missing all these years… His unique style, sound, and “fresh” approach, got the best out of Alex and Tas. After lots of live performances and a year later they hit the studio and record 11 songs that signal the birth of “PHASE REVERSE”... A power trio … the flesh and bones of a rock band…their songs… the music and the lyrics … energy and passion, dynamic phonetic interpretations, explosive riffs, grooves that make you drift, sometimes heavily and other times with aggressive disposal, songs that exchange moods both rhythmically and musically creating a musical canvas in which the lyrics add and complete the landscape with pictures, that sometimes are social (globalization, ecology, war, etc), about life and death, and other times considering the aspects of personal relationships of persons with a different point of view about love and behavior. Blues, Rock' N' Roll, Hard Rock, and Heavy Metal all sonically mix while the American Southern Rock is set as a background… all processed in a “PHASE REVERSE” mode resulting in the particular and simultaneously modern sound of the band. One thing is for sure, that we are dealing with three genuine rockers that their songs simply and genuinely declare their presence in their own unique way with a voice all their own at a time that is characterized by labels… in their own words: “…our music is just ROCK…”
Edge Of Paradise began January 1st 2011 when singer/songwriter/pianist Margarita Monet and guitarist/Songwriter Dave Bates joined forces to form symphonic hard rock band, signified with virtuosic musical skill. The sound is a melodic fusion of heavy guitars, exhilarating keyboards and impeccably grooving rhythms. Edge Of Paradise is about living on the edge, the life that's being portrayed as paradise is really an unstable existence that can tip you off the edge and out of existence. Considering that the band is very young, some of the original songs have longer history. Dave Bates was the co founder with Robin McCauley (MSG, Survivor) of the former band "Bleed". After releasing a CD the band headlined around LA, but due to Robin’s demanding schedule “Bleed’s” ability to tour was limited which led the band to its current line up. Margarita Monet singer/songwriter/pianist/, Dave Bates-guitarist/songwriter, Kevin Katich-drums/back vocals, Steven Cook-bass/back vocals. The Evolution of the songs led to the band's sharp, modern sound. Some of the acclaimed musicians that the band records with include drummer, Gregg Bissonnette and bass player; Tony Franklin. Edge Of Paradise has expanded its repertoire of original songs and is concentrating on touring and releasing the best possible songs. The Edge of Paradise can be identified in the Rock, Progressive Rock and Metal categories, their music has influences of Modern Rock, Classic Rock, Metal, Pop Rock and Symphonic Metal. The band may be compared to artists like Muse, Led Zeppelin,Black Sabbath, Evanescence, 30 Seconds To Mars, Metallica, U2, Symphony X and classical influences of legendary composers.
Bio Frequis is a five piece rock band from Phoenix, AZ. Their dark and sludgy sounds are reminiscent of grunge, metal and progressive rock, but the distinctive Frequis sound comes to life through the use of noise, a powerful voice, a relentlessly driving rhythm section, dynamic guitar solos, and high octane live performances.
Frequis has influences ranging from 90's grunge such as Alice and Chains, Soundgarden and Nirvana to more progressive bands such as Dream Theater and Pink Floyd.
SERIS. With every wave of sound they resonate, there exists an unspoken promise to defy the conventional standards of today’s music while creating an emotional cadence sure to linger long after the rhythms have stopped. Enthralled by the notion of discounting the status-quo, Seris vows to create a sound which breaks from the monotony of the overheard, underwhelming songs of the moment, and instead embraces the endless horizon of the unexplored. Seris has established these infinite possibilities to be their playground.
Taking elements of dark and artistic progressive rock and adding a very deliberate odd-time metal feel serves as their musical foundation. Fusing this progressive edge with a powerful and haunting female voice distinctly separates this unique ensemble from the rest. The result of this combination is a modern style of metal whose musicality and technicality blend seamlessly into a focused and emotionally-provocative sound not yet heard on any terrestrial radio station.
Very evident on their 3 song self-titled demo, Seris takes a departure from the standard metal approach in a dynamic and exceptional way. Starting off with the powerful and edgy, though quite accessible hit “Residence,” Seris’ commanding and beautiful vocals are supported by a dark and driving melodic form. Followed by the energetic and odd-timed makings of “And Fury”, the demo keeps any curious listener nothing less than absorbed in the pure musical wonderment. “Tamasisk”, the staccato-minded concluding track on the disk, demonstrates the band’s technical poly-metric prowess while exploiting their capacity to always respect musicality.
Seris’ exodus from the conventions of rock and metal has split the tides in an ocean of music that all sounds too familiar. Their conviction and fortitude only cements their journey along the path laid out before them. With an affirmation to defy the status quo, the potentials of this band are truly immeasurable.
