Menace Ruine - Venus Armata

Some of the strongest bands within the music spectrum are those that can change their style drastically without losing any momentum in the process. A recent example of this within the metal genre would be the mysterious Menace Ruine duo. These Canadians emerged from the shadows not even a decade ago with their demo and debut, hazy blends of atmospheric black metal and doom, only to make a complete 180 and descend into a more folky form of drone. 2014's Venus Armata continues in this direction, and is an absolutely magnificent release.

Raspberry Bulbs - Privacy

Raspberry Bulbs makes blackish punk that's deserving of the title "Primitive." Like, straight from the viscera Primitive; the kind of Primitive bands constantly aim for and most come up short on. The disputable genre tags for them seem like they just get in the way of that fact. This is some angry, raw stuff and that should be enough in way of describing what it is they do.

Heliosaga

Heliosaga was formed in June 2010 by Damien Villarreal (guitar/keys) who was joined by Jordan Ames (drums), Lucas Drummond (guitar), Christine Schas (vocals) and Ken Lambdin (bass). The initial compositions showed influences from power, gothic and folk metal that defined the early sound of the band. After a few months, Lucas decided to leave, and while searching for a full-time fifth member Heliosaga completed a five song demo, Equinox, in April 2011. That following June, Jacob Horning (bass) joined and Ken assumed guitar duties. Bass tracks for the demo were rerecorded, and following a brief stint of live shows Heliosaga decided to search for a new singer. The members used the ensuing months to concentrate on writing new material, and in June 2012 Chelsea Knaack (ex-DesDemon) joined the band as lead vocalist. Over the next nine months Heliosaga would release a single, The Light of Ardor, relocate to Minnesota and part ways with Ken and Jacob. In early 2014, Heliosaga began recording its debut album, Towers in the Distance. The official release date is set for August 22, 2014.

Gypsyhawk

Gypsyhawk is four metal dudes playing rock and roll and bringing the party every time they get on stage," states guitarist Andrew Packer, and there is perhaps no better way of surmising the spirit and sound of the Pasadena quartet. Revisiting the electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock, the band are a breath of fresh air compared to the endless onslaught of breakdown obsessed bands cluttering up heavy music. Marinating their wares in whiskey and weed, they hurl out blistering riffs and irresistible hooks and grooves, doing their damnedest to ensure that everyone at their shows is having as much fun as they are. With Revelry & Resilience, their second full-length and Metal Blade debut, this vibe bleeds from the speakers from start to finish, determinedly putting a smile on your face and compelling you to throw your hair around, no matter how much or how little you might have. "It's music for girls to shake their asses to and dudes to bang their heads," states vocalist/bassist Eric Harris. "It's good-time rock and roll, and we don't take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time we're not one-dimensional 'yeah-dude-let's-party-all-the-fucking-time!' guys, and I like to think there's something for everyone in our music."

Pilgrim

Since the early 2012 unveiling of their debut sonic behemoth Misery Wizard, fans and critics alike have patiently yet anxiously awaited the second chapter in the ongoing legacy of the almighty Pilgrim, a three-piece doom metal band from Rhode Island, USA.

Their first release shook the doom metal underground to its core, making a loud, in your face effort to bring doom metal back to its most minimalist and archaic roots, restoring it to its former glory. Their critical success, paired with their controversial interviews and emotionally draining live performances have lead pilgrim to excellence, traversing the globe performing sold-out shows in multiple countries and playing festivals alongside some of the biggest names in their genre. Two years later, the fabled outfit has returned with a brand new record, the highly anticipated next installment of their aural adventure "II: Void Worship."

Spirit Caravan

Following THE OBSESSED's fold in 1995, beloved Singer/Guitarist Scott "Wino" Weinrich spent time in California, jamming and maintaining a wild lifestyle.

Following his release from the hospital, Wino rode a Greyhound bus for 3,000 miles from California to Maryland, with nothing left but the pair of shorts he was wearing.
