Saliva
Saliva
Memphis. It's a place where music isn't just played; it's created. From that legacy comes Saliva. On the quintet's 12-song Island debut, Every Six Seconds, Saliva bring the sturm und drang of hard rock together with hip-hop, grunge and sheer, unbridled mayhem, while still preserving the spirit and soulful intensity of its forebears. Every Six Seconds, the name chosen by frontman Josey Scott because "life cycles seem to happen every six seconds," is the sound of tradition beginning a new cycle and forging on into the 21st century. "We were all after the same thing -- I can say that," says Scott, a fourth-generation musician who, like most of the members of Saliva, had established himself through years of service in the Memphis music scene before forming the band. "We were after something really undeniable, sort of heavy and melodic. We were all in these bands that were not getting our rocks off stylistically; we really wanted to build great songs." On first listen to Every Six Seconds, it's easy to be enveloped by the crunchy, chugging riffs on opening track "Superstar," the rap tinges on "Doperide," or the sheer brutality .. Click Boom" and "Beg." Repeated listens will reveal unrepentant popcraft, as evidenced by the hopeful yet defiantly anti-sentimental "Hollywood," and the anthemic first single "Your Disease." It's obvious that Saliva, with rock aggression, hasn't forsaken the importance of a well-crafted song. guitarist Wayne Swinny, who recalls his first meeting with Scott: "I couldn't believe what came out of this guy. The beauty is that for all of his ability to rap and his hard-edge and his look -- he looks really aggressive and scary, almost -- when I saw him sit down with an acoustic and play this beautiful, melodic stuff with great hooks and melodies and incredible vocals, that really did it for me. I knew this was a band that could so something really special." Completed with the additions of drummer Paul Crosby and bassist Dave Novotny, Saliva came together, eventually adding Jon Montoya to complete the line up. About the name, Scott says, "it's controversial and different, and like it or not, you'll never forget it." Within the first few months of its formation, the fledgling group entered a Grammy Showcase competition sponsored by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. Despite being an unknown act at the time, Saliva -- which was among those chosen from 6,000 entries nationwide -- won the Memphis competition in January 1997 and then came out victorious in the semifinals, which were held in Austin, Texas the following month. Next came the nationals in New York City, where the band were finalist. "We want the world every time we go out to do something," says Scott. The band was thrilled that it had come from nowhere to make its mark. The group chose not to rush into a deal, however, putting out a self-titled debut independently that sold some 10,000 copies on a regional basis. After signing with Island, Saliva hooked up with producer Bob Marlette -- whom Scott refers to as "the heavy metal guru" -- for two months of recording at A&M Studios in Hollywood. The saliva catalog includes: every six seconds (island) Back into your system (island) Survival of the sickest (island) Blood stained love story (Island) Musically, Saliva may seem a million miles from Memphis, but like Elvis, the band has forged a sound that's "all shook up."
Scarlet Canary
Scarlet Canary
The Canary is OUT of the cage!
Scarlet Canary started with two friends in a college dorm room as a Three days grace cover band. A few late nights and a case or two of monster later, Allen asked his girlfriend Hannah to listen to the song and sing the lyrics. Soon she was part of the band. After that, the band auditioned a few different drummers and guitarists, none of which seemed to be the right fit. But after a long search, the band found Ryan on craigslist and ten minutes into the audition, they knew he was the person they had been looking for. The last two members to join the band were Jacob "swampman" as rhythm and John on bass. Both added their own special talents to the band and made scarlet canary one of the up and coming hard rock bands in northern colorado. We have some shows coming up in the near future so if you like what you hear, then PROMOTE and COME SEE US LIVE! We look forward to seeing you at our shows and will continue to bring you more originals, covers, videos, and merch.
Elete
Elete
Elete was concieved late 2007 by ex-Lexen metal frontman and industrial hip hop artist, Roman Only. Currently the Elete live line up consists of Mike Oxbig and Will Mendoza on guitars, WMD on bass, drum madman Che-Cho and Roman himself fronting the operation.

This act is the result of heavily fusing guitars with synthesizer and sequencing structures, resulting in a core combination of hard rock and metal married to industrial styling. Seamlessly gliding from crunch to glitch this five piece act relentlessly tears down walls of discretion, violating the boundaries of any current genre by pushing aside any limitation or pre-concieved notion of what's possible when it comes to composing and performing audio tracks.

Mammothor
Mammothor
Mammothor strives to deliver the essence of rock: the thunderous heavy metal riffs and guitar shred of the 80’s, rounded out with the passion and versatility of 90’s alternative.

Mammothor is an American alt metal band from Boston, Massachusetts, formed in 2012. Travis Lowell fronts the group with powerful and versatile vocals. Berklee graduate Josh Johnson studied with guitar shred legend Joe Stump while Dana Sharpton has studied with virtuoso guitarist Greg Howe. The dynamic and steady drums and bass of Nick Raby and Lori Gangi fill out the band’s eclectic sound.
Mammothor has shared the stage with artists such as Korn, Stone Sour, Seether, Living Colour, and Hinder. Blending heavy metal and classic rock, Mammothor often mixes in elements of blues and fusion. Despite their experimental, progressive style, Mammothor maintains mainstream appeal with shorter alternative rock songs and ballads.
