DALLAS METAL SCENE SHOWCASE
DALLAS METAL SCENE SHOWCASE
What started as "another" simple facebook page (DALLAS METAL SCENE) just for the use of DFW Metal bands to promote their shows, has now evolved into a growing promotional group that put together shows and who promote in the DFW area.
Divine Retribution
Divine Retribution
Divine Retribution is a Melodic Life Metal band founded by Kitty Garces and Eric Garces in Dallas, Texas when they were studying music together in college. With Kitty’s ear for melody and passion for poetry, combined with Eric’s classical guitar experience, it was their mutual love for metal and classical music that ultimately forged the dramatic, aggro-melodic sound that became Divine Retribution’s signature soundtrack. The addition of nephew Gunther Garces and his rapid, percussive bass-attack complimented the lyrical and sonic sense of urgency that propelled their songs. In 2017, the band expanded its sonic landscape with the addition of prog-metal musician Daniel Almagro on drums and began recording their self-titled debut album, set to be released at the end of year.

With influences ranging from classic and 80s hard rock to progressive and power metal, classical music, traditional Latin and Eastern music, and the sweeping soundscapes of cinema, Divine Retribution has forged an epic sound that journeys nomadically across genres. For this reason, the band adopted its genre label, rebelling against anyone who would insist on labeling the band or their music. The music was melodic, heavy, and founded on themes of hope and faith—hence, their self-described genre: Melodic Life Metal.

Vocalist Kitty Garces says the label is “more than just a clever pun on Death Metal. For us to say we’re ‘Life Metal’ speaks more about our identity than our content, and I knew I never wanted our music to be confined by genres. I wanted to make sure we would always have that freedom to transcend genres and explore as we continue to grow as artists. We’re heavy, and our love for Jesus Christ is the inspiration and reason behind everything that we do and write, so I just let the music speak for itself.”

The music, like the band itself is passionate, as are their supporters. Appropriately-dubbed “Hellrazers” (founded on the idea of “razing” or tearing down the dark forces of this world), it was Divine Retribution’s supporters who championed the band’s message and music, garnering international attention, with radio stations, webzines, and Hellrazers hailing everywhere from North, South, and Central America to Europe and Asia.
Awaken to Remember
Awaken to Remember
Forged by a meeting through friends of friends in late 2013-early 2014 formed, Awaken To Remember. Brandon C.(former guitarist of Fallen South & Coincide) a D/FW metal music scene veteran teamed up with other local music scene vets, Burt Usry II(former drummer for: Anahadonia, Daimonion & NeverDead) & Chris WIlliams(former guitarist of Southern Assault & Ligma).

Together, they hunted for a bass player & out of know where it seemed, along came Leo R.(for bassist of Moon Fluid) filling the bass guitar role nicely & Wild Bill(former vocalist of Wage Of War) taking of over vocals completing the band.

Each member from different styles of metal bands & musical upbringing creating a remolded & driven metal sound back the table of hard rock & heavy metal. A new force of reckoning.
