About the bands…

As I Lay Dying

Metal Blade Records’ biggest-selling
act, winner of MTV2’s Metal Gods award in 2006, and nominated for a Grammy in
2008 for Best Metal Performance for the single "Nothing Left," the band As I Lay
Dying has acquired a devoted fan base for their on-stage performances and six
albums including their latest, An Ocean Between Us. The band consists of Tim
Lambesis (vocals), Jordan Mancino (drums), Nick Hipa (guitar), Phil Sgrosso
(guitar), and Josh Gilbert (bass).

Protest The Hero

Protest The Hero, or PTH, say they
don’t consider themselves prog, metal, or techno, but we should consider them a
fascinating, riff-centric band that has pleased fans with their two full-length
albums, Kezia and the white-hot Fortress. The latter album has an especially
deep concept, of which lyricist Arif Mirabdolbaghi notes, "It has to do with
Goddess Worship, and how there has been this degendering of the Lord and Savior,
and the suppressed feminine. The concept is about the re-emerging of goddess
worship and the erosion of faith in scientific process." The band consists of
Rody Walker (vocals), Mirabdolbaghi (bass/vocals), Tim Millar (guitar/vocals),
Luke Hoskin (guitar/piano), and Moe Carlson (drums).

The Human Abstract

The sophomore release from the band,
Midheaven, should portend good things for the band after it has gone through a
few changes since their debut release, Nocturne. The term Midheaven refers to
one of the four angles on a natal chart, and is believed by astrologers to
outline an individual’s goals, achievements, and standing in the world. Check
out the progressive metal sound of Nathan Ells (vocals), Andrew Tapley (guitar),
Dean Herrera (guitar), Brett Powell (drums), and Sean Leonard (pianist).


Hailing from northern Alabama,
MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE (or MCMB) got the attention of their label, Solid State
Records, by a non-stop touring effort, plenty of hard work, and a brutally
hardcore metal sound that shakes fans to the core. Their debut album is entitled
Unbreakable, and the band consists of Matthew Hastings (vocals), Robert
Bloomfield (guitar), Brian Hood (drums), and Joe Lengson (bass).
