Wolfsmyth
Wolfsmyth
If Patrick Swayze had a dinner party and the only guest was Burt Reynolds, the only dish served was motor oil in a bread bowl, and desert was a kiss on the lips...that is WOLFSMYTH.

The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection
The Rupert Selection are the creation of Zak Brown, Reilly Somach, and Peter Crofton: a trio of longtime high-school friends from Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA. What was initially intended as a fun side project in 2008 soon morphed into a serious endeavor as the band honed their skills with dozens of shows throughout 2010. Conspiritorium, their self-produced, debut album was released in early 2011. The band has since continued to write thoroughly innovative and original material and perform virtually non-stop throughout New England and, most recently, in venues in NYC, NJ, DE, and PA as their fanbase continues to grow. 2016 alone featured the release of their first official single and self-directed music video for “Funeral Party,” airplay on Boston radio, and more than 40 shows throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Sessions for an EP recently wrapped at The Bridge Sound and Stage in Cambridge, MA with producer/engineer Alex Allinson. “Tree Hands” is the first single and video released from the upcoming EP with the rest to follow in early 2017. With their high energy performances and mind-bending blend of genres, The Rupert Selection are a power trio in every sense of the word and not to be missed.
The Heave Ho
The Heave Ho
Pete played the guitar and thought he might be able to sing. Barry (Keith S.) played the bass. Jason played the drums. Harlem Greenwood (Marc S.) almost made parole, broke out of a maximum security halfway house and stole a firetruck because he thought it would be funny. We figured we could be a good band. We may or may not have been right.
Witchkiss
Witchkiss
From the antediluvian shores of the murky Hudson arises a new force in the world of doom metal. Articulate, elegant and ridiculously fucking heavy, Witchkiss are part of a growing movement coming out of upstate New York in the world of crushingly loud and punishing music. Built around raw emotion, sonic poetry and a sense of longing for a life lost, there is a haunting majesty to the work of Witchkiss. These Hudson Valley NY natives are fusing the sounds of bands like Subrosa, Yob and Isis to craft sounds that contemplates the neverending cycle of life and death.
Their current offering, The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes is a journey through depressed unrealities, punishing truths, and a sense that something better can be made of this world. Founded by Scott Prater, a longtime metalhead, and his partner Amber Burns, a veritable novice on drums, this debut release has been a long time in the making. Building on the interplay between eerie female vocals and crushing growls, the groove driven Witchkiss can’t help but to fascinate. This is the kind of doom metal that fans of Cult of Luna and Helms Alee can’t help but to love.
Ready to take on the world with an appetite for constant touring, loud riffs and the passion to tackle just about every festival they can, Witchkiss understand what it takes to grow in the insular art doom community. With music based on raw and uncomfortable emotions, Witchkiss are striving to bring their craft to the next level. Coming out of a cold dark place to shower the world in volume and a potent vision, Witchkiss are hungry to prove that The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes deserves a place in the doom metal canon.
