THE RODS are a classic heavy metal trio that rocked their way through the 80’s with a powerful, raw energy that led them on tours with some of today’s greatest metal bands—Judas Priest, Ozzy, Motorhead, and Metallica, to name just a few.
Listeners will find that THE RODS are still a force to be reckoned with today, as they come screaming full-throttle into the present day with a forceful vintage sound.
Sanhedrin’s sound is familiar but not derivative. While their songwriting is clearly rooted in the classics, their take on rock and metal comes across as fresh and honest. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Sanhedrin’s sound is a combination of the toughness and beauty that their home borough embodies.
“TOWER bring the party wherever they are.” – High Times
“This is a group who capture the hearts of an entire audience and within seconds have them all dancing on the floor showing what they’ve got. This is a band who bring us back to the foundational beauty of the music and remind us why we got into it in the first place.” – TwoGuysMetalReviews
“Sarabeth’s roar scorches and seduces in the vein of Leather Leone, Janis Joplin or the late great Ronnie James Dio (she did front Holy Diva, after all).” – Slutist.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (July 11, 2016) – Raised on a diet of pure 20th century rock, New York City’s TOWER produces a sound many admire, some attempt, and few can pull off.
Featuring members Sarabeth Linden (lead vocals), James Danzo (guitar), Zak Penley (guitar), and Philippe Arman (bass, backup vocals), the band delivers riffs like a newly discovered bolt of old cloth hidden away since the days of Scorpions and Priest, topped with Linden’s vocals which soar through the realm of banshees and angels.
Says the band, “Tower is proud to celebrate The End of a long dry spell for hard rock and metal.”
TOWER is currently putting the final touches on their debut album due out later this year.
THRONE OF IRON
Formed in the sweltering summer of 2018 in the wake of an alcohol-fueled love of the sounds of classic heavy metal and tomes of roleplaying past, Throne Of Iron is here to bring the wood paneled basement to YOU.
Originally a solo project of Tucker Thomasson (Thorr-Axe), Throne Of Iron released their 2018 Demo, with Tucker performing all instruments. The demo took off on Bandcamp, gaining the attention of writers on the site, BangerTV, and eventually No Remorse Records, who approached Tucker with a contract.
Thinking quick, Tucker gathered forces in the form of Corwin Deckard on guitar, his longtime drummer friend from Thorr-Axe, Jacob Lett, and the cleric Evan Pruitt on bass.
The four immediately descended into the basement to forge their debut full length, which is now in its final stages of formation, set to be released on No Remorse this spring.
Chicago’s Midnight Dice was formed in the Summer of 2017 by Rusty, Steve, Mandy, and Jose after their previous band, Satan’s Hallow, went on indefinite hiatus following the release of their well received self-titled album and a performance at the prestigious Keep It True festival in Germany in April 2017. For fans of: Dio, Judas Priest, Dokken, Satan’s Hallow, etc.
