Fist Fight
Fist Fight
Born from the Colorado metal scene, rarely does a band this versatile and powerful come about, with goals of dominating audiences and searing their blazing sound into the minds of those listening. By way of a thunderous approach, Fist Fight is a combination of numerous musical philosophies and styles which comes at you from every possible angle. Utilizing raw, yet polished techniques at the same time, they fold in a unique blend of technical ability, hardcore, grove and traditional metal riffs accompanied by punkish tones, and a level of unforeseen forceful aggression that commands notice by pounding onlookers' teeth down their throats with a take no prisoners attitude.

The initial foundation of Fist Fight was laid in December 2010 when guitarists Jon Maggard and Nich Rich began to build the band from the ground up. Bassist Adrian Montoya joined the duo in March 2011, and after trying out several drummers and
vocalists, drummer Chris Day and frontman Dustin Holmer solidified the monster collection of talent to create Fist Fight.

With decades of collective experience in the music industry, the members of Fist Fight come from an impressive resume of bands, of which a partial list includes Less Than Under, Chromax, Control Element, Guilty Of Aggression, Skapegoat and Ceverence. Their members have also performed alongside well-known bands such as Hed PE, Snot, Motograter, Hemlock, LA Guns, White Lion and Chimera, to name just a few. Through hard work and natural talent, Fist Fight is poised to set the metal world on fire with an explosive sound that, prior to the band's inception, was unheard of.

Fist Fight uses Shure Microphones, Gibson, Jackson, Epiphone and BC Rich Guitars, four and five-string Schecter Basses, Dunlop Sharp Picks, POD Pros, Mesa Boogie Amps, Peavey/Carvin Cabs, Eminence Speakers, SWR Workingman and Peavey Heads, Monster Cables, Pearl Export Series Drums, Ziljian Cymbals, Pearl Hardware, Pedalstand Evans/Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth 5b Sticks.

Don't allow yourself to be caught off guard; the era of the mighty Fist Fight has just begun.
Arise in Chaos
Arise in Chaos
Arise In Chaos is:
Dustin Griboski - Vocals
Jeramy Matheson - Drums
Ryan Orr - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals
Cameron Burris - Rhythm Guitar
John Vickers - Bass Guitar

Formed in the spring of 2010 with the founding members Dustin, Jeramy and Cameron, Arise In Chaos had begun. The music they wrote was incredible, but it needed the support of two awesome thrashers in the form of guitarist Ryan and bassist John, who filled the void in 2011. Specializing in groove, thrash, and progressive metal, Arise in Chaos sent a shockwave through the local metal scene, and is about to bring American Heavy Metal at it's very best to the world. With humble beginnings in Denver Colorado, Arise In Chaos has shed blood, sweat, and tears to release the upcoming debut album "Civilization Decay", which will shake the globe in October of 2012. Having a whole cast of members that gained experience from heavy metal acts such as; Downtied, Only Chaos, Pariah, and Wading Through Corpses - Arise In Chaos has the talent, energy, and drive to become a new powerhouse in the worldwide metal community. The Chaos is coming!
The Medina Grooves
The Medina Grooves
Every now and then, an artist attempts to combine styles that are traditionally classed as being polar opposite. That being said, the choice to merge such genres as heavy metal and reggae is generally frowned upon and prejudged, often referred to as sounding "unnatural" or "forced". Enter The Medina Grooves.....Created in 2011 and born into reality in 2014, The Medina Grooves project is the brainchild of Marcos Medina Rivera (guitar/vocals), current Skinlab guitarist and formerly of latin heavyweights Iratetion. The line-up also boasts Carlos Pagan (Motograter/Fracture) on guitar, Darren McClelland (Straight Line Stitch/Signals From Saturn) on bass, Gustavo Kolndorfer (Spallah) down in Brazil on lead guitar, Pedro Ghork Lopez (Iratetion/Cultura Sur) from Venezuela on latin tribal percussion and Ryan Ball (ex-Crisis) on drums. The hybrid style of music created by The Medina Grooves has previously been called "ViolentReggae" or "HeavyRasta", but we believe our sounds transcends all genres, from the beautiful to the extreme. We are based out of DENVER, CO and recently completed recording our debut EP "The Dreadlist" with renown producer Ahrue Luster (Ill Niño/ex-Machine Head) at Illustrious Studios, and is scheduled for a late-summer 2016 release. The Medina Grooves have yet to make our live debut, as we await the proper time to unleash our intense live show to the masses. That time is NOW!!
