DOORS: 8 PM / SHOW: 9 PM
STEEL BEARING HAND: Formed in 2009 as Live by the Sword. In late 2010 the band changed their name to Steel Bearing Hand and released their four track demo. Through early to mid 2011 Steel Bearing Hand had a bassist by the name of Craig who left the band sometime in July. Todd VW of Guisö was brought in to fill in the duties as bassist. This line-up held until September 2011 when Todd was changed from bassist to second guitarist and John Schiller of Tyrannosorceress was added as bass player. Members of Steel Bearing Hand are in many other local projects: Wyatt, Matt and Todd are all members of d-beat band Psychic Warfare (formerly known as Volkssturm), and each formerly of hardcore punk band Life Erased. John and Todd both are in d-beat band Slimelight. Todd is also a part of Guisö. John aside from playing bass in Tyrannosorceress, is a part of death metal band Cleric (Cleric was Schiller's original band before the formation of Tyrannosorceress, Cleric broke up in 2009 and reformed in late 2011). As of August 2012, Todd VW has left Steel Bearing Hand to focus on his other projects Pissed Grave and Psychic Warfare.
AGGRAVATOR: Aggravator formed in 2008 by Vocalist/Guitarist Derek Jones and Drummer Mike Cortes. Their songwriting skill and knack for speed turned many heads and had promoters booking them even as a two piece band. As time went on they caught the attention of bass playing Steve Gonsalves who was watching them from the crowd. After a talk with Derek and Mike, the two recruited Steve to play bass for them. In September of 2010 Aggravator acquired Jesse Lopez who took Aggravator to the next level with his lead guitar skills. That same month Steve left the band, however Aggravator wasn't without a bassist for long. Within a few days of Steve's departure Tristan Hernandez joined them on bass and the lineup was complete again. With this line up Aggravator has climbed the metal ranks very rapidly, getting many fans, press releases, and radio play. They recorded the Seven Swords demo in October of 2010 and hope to hit the studio to record their full length debut in mid to late 2011. Influenced by Slayer, Kreator, Metallica, Megadeth etc. Aggravator is capable and more than willing to be a metal force for the next generation of thrash fans.
GHOULGOTHA: W. Sarantopoulos (Elektrokutioner - Also of DECREPITAPH, FATHER BEFOULED, ENCOFFINATION, WOODEN STAKE, and more) moved from Dallas to San Diego and began searching for musicians that were looking to bring some Doom/Death to Southern California. Shortly after moving, he hooked up with drummer C. Koryn (also in ASCENDED DEAD) who shared a lot of the same influences. Their playing styles worked perfectly with each other, making the song writing process very easy. The two jammed for a few months while looking for other members to complete the line up. The band name GHOULGOTHA was chosen as it represents our dedication to rotting old skull Doom/Death. In the summer of 2012, J. Moreno (ASCENDED DEAD) and I. Mann were added on bass/vocals and second guitar, respectively. The full horde quickly put together a two song demo/promo called 'No Peace To Rest In' which will be released in September 2012. The debut full length is already written and being rehearsed now. The band intends to play some shows in San Diego and Los Angeles before recording the first chapter in the GHOULGOTHA saga.
HOLY TYRANT: IN 2006 HOLY TYRANT WAS STARTED AS ANOTHER PROJECT THAT UNFORTUNATELY, BEFORE ACHIEVING ITS FULL POTENTIAL, WAS SUMMONED BACK TO HELL, FOR IT WAS FAR TO EVIL FOR THE EARS OF MAN. THEN, IN 2006 AGAIN, LAZARUS CREPT FROM HIS STINKING TOMB AND HORRIFIED THE WORLD. WHEN JESUS SAW WHAT HE HAD DONE, LAZARUS (LEE/REED) WAS QUICKLY BANISHED BACK INTO HIS DISGUSTING LAIR OF LEPROSY TO ROT FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY. THEN IN 2010, USING SPARE PARTS FROM OTHER ROTTEN CORPSES SUCH AS WACO F#CK'S HEAD EXPLODING BASS BOHEMETH (ANDREW) AND IMPALOR'S BLOODTHIRSTY AX MAN (ALEX), WE, HOLY TYRANT, WERE SEWN BACK TOGETHER AND RELEASED AS A SICKENING MUTATION UPON THE EARTH TO ONCE AGAIN, RADICALLY RAPE MANKINDS EAR PUSSIES AND ANNOY OUR NEIGHBORS WITH OUR MARSHALLS. WE RAISE OUR GLASSES TO ALL THE MAD MEN CHOSEN BY THE VALKYRIES THEMSELVES TO GO THRASHING INTO THE FOG OF WAR AGAINST THE TYRANNY OF THE HOLY LIARS. SKAL!!!!
