With special guests: After the Burial, Among the First, and Beauty is Betrayal
An uninhibited eight-stringed dual barrage of frenetic riffs and dynamic chord progression is exactly what the crushing new AFTER THE BURIAL delivers with pinpoint precision. This highly anticipated new offering is quickly going to raise the bar for all others within the metal genre as this group effectively unleashes a frenzy of jaw-dropping dual guitar dynamics that is backed by a captivating energy and groove resulting in an overall unrelenting output of punishment. ATB is hell-bent on forging their own unique path within the extreme metal genre and they are well on their way to that very goal.
This is an extreme metal hybrid that is a voracious assault on all the senses forcing your brain to fire on all cylinders in order to process the amount of material that is currently being pounded into your ears. This is thinking man’s metal and it’s not for the weak minded.
The tech-wizardry is amped way up, the breakdowns are massive and face-melting and the vocal delivery is the most devastating yet. Already lauded for their technically impressive yet well structured style of songwriting, AFTER
THE BURIAL certainly takes things up a notch or two with this newest outing.
Individually coming from very different musical backgrounds Among the First was formed in early 2016 by Allen Wheeler (guitar), Taylor Klisiewicz (drums), and Nick Herst (bass) as an outlet for a collection of years of versatile musical experience and influence. With inspiration coming from a vast catalog of musical and creative influences including but not limited to NIN, Sevendust, Papa Roach, In This Moment and others, ATF has managed to carve out a powerful, heart felt, and intense musical experience that they will soon be taking to the local, national, and eventually global market.
Over the course of 15 years the members of ATF and have collectively toured and or shared the stage with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Steel Panther, Papa Roach, Static X, Machine Head, Otep, Otherwise, Trapt, and many others.
After the successful release of their self titled debut EP, as well as the addition of Steve Hatch (vocals) to its ranks, ATF is currently in the beginning pre production on material for their next effort due out mid 2019. Be on the lookout for news, studio, and tour updates.
Beauty Is Betrayal is born and raged in Sacramento, CA. Formed back in 2015 by front woman Bri Cowgill, alongside Burn Halo’s very own guitar player, Ryan Frost. The powerful duo bonded over dark humor, the love of the odd treasures, and of course, inner anger. Beauty is armed with talented hard working members including, Drummer Sam Nakagawara; Guitarist, Alex Lovato; and Bassist, Jaden Daniels. Beauty’s sound includes hauntingly evil guitar riffs, fast heavy drums, and a uniquely powerful blend of Cowgill’s & Frost’s vocals leaves you pumped & wanting more. The band has gone on to main support national bands including: Escape The Fate, Oh, Sleeper, Burn Halo, and HED P.E. Beauty is fearless & dramatic when it comes to their live performance. They demand attention with not only their music, but with their theatrics showcasing bloody suites & masks, strange stage decorations, intense high energy, and comedic crowd interactions. “Music is designed to bring people together. When you see a live show, everyone is in that room for the same reason: we can each be and feel all the things we want without consequence. In that moment we are free & unified, THAT is the biggest take away.” Cowgill expressed. Recently, Beauty just got done tracking a 5 song EP with producer Mick Kenney. As well as released a music video for their cover of Katy Perry’s, “Dark Horse.” Beauty Is Betrayal leaves you with an experience you have to see to believe, if you’re not too scared.
