Deathgrip
Deathgrip
Texas veteran metal musicians have teamed up to form supergroup Deathgrip, featuring singer Matt Story, brothers Jimi Fritz and Paul Fritz, guitarists, drummer Scott Baughn and bassist Bryan Lunos. Deathgrip has signed a global distribution deal with DSN Music for their debut release, "we are pleased to announce that we will be signing a deal with DSN for the release of our upcoming CD" said Story. "After working with DSN in the past on other projects, the decision was an easy one." Deathgrip's debut album is scheduled for a worldwide release in 2017.
Electric Vengeance
Electric Vengeance
Bran Damage. Trey Lunabomber. Napaulm. Three maniacs on a mission to resurrect the dead by mutating the early sounds of Heavy Metal, Punk Rock, and Thrash! Rising from the gutters of Grand Prairie, Texas in June 2007, together they are Electric Vengeance -- an uncompromising trio of madcaps possessed by their demigod Electric Harry to avenge these commercially-raped genres, left for dead by the mainstream.

United to thrash with Bran Damage's guiterrorizing shred-work and harsh lead vocals, Trey Lunabomber's maniacal beats, and Napaulm's merciless bass stranglings, Electric Vengeance will smash your skull through your socks with their signature style, Street Metal: a pissed off combination of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Hardcore Punk, Thrash, and Speed Metal with a healthy mix of attitude and offbeat humor to satisfy the rabid hunger of their rising underground cult - affectionately known as the Street Metal Attack! Keep It Electric.
Epic Death
Epic Death
Texas-based metal unit Epic Death live up to their name in more ways than one: with an imposing musical pedigree and decades of combined experience in multiple bands across several genres, they weave a tapestry of sinister sonic atmospheres, bringing together the imagery, theatricality and brute force of classic black metal, thrash and technical death metal with eerie soundscapes, apocalyptic lyrics and haunting melodies, drawing influence from such iconic bands as Slayer, Dimmu Borgir, Death, Cradle of Filth and Behemoth, while simultaneously exploring dark new horizons in extreme music.

The band was conceived in 2010 by guitarist/frontman Dennis Dorsett – whose previous credits include work with Aggravated Assault, Chaos, Mischief, Majik, Balance and NeverDead – and features a stellar lineup of artists from the metal circles of Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth: keyboardist/vocalist Becky Dorsett; rhythm guitarist Alex Costa of Dead Trip; bassist/backing vocalist Justin Riddler of Dead Trip; and drummer Reece Stanley, alumnus of Dallas metallers Phantom-X.

With their core lineup in place, the band quickly began their rise to prominence, gaining acclaim both within and beyond the Lone Star State, sharing the stage with metal heavyweights from all points of the globe – including Nile, Finntroll, Mushroomhead and Gemini Syndrome, to name just a few – and have played high profile venues such as Minnesota's annual NYDM Festival and Houston's legendary Scout Bar. They are also prominently featured in Derek Norman's 2012 documentary “Heavy in Houston,” and back before the cameras in the film's sequel."Heavier in Houston".

Epic Death's debut full-length album “Witchcraft,” is produced, engineered and mixed by Stephen Bogle (formerly of acclaimed industrial act The Hunger), and are set to crush and conquer in 2015/2016 – once again confirming the phrase “Things are bigger in Texas” with their own brand of colossal, uncompromising metal.
Rivethead
Rivethead
Rivethead were a punk rock band from Minneapolis. Members have gone on to play with Off With Their Heads, Dear Landlord, Banner Pilot, The Gateway District, and The Pyongyang Metro.
