Immortal Dominion
Immortal Dominion
Immortal Dominion (I.D.) is a powerhouse of heavy, driving metal. Often amazing new listeners with their unique and catchy rhythms, I.D. has an appeal that crosses genres and audiences. Established over a decade ago in Ft. Collins, Colorado, they reinvented the local scene, paving the way for many bands to follow. They have played in CA, WY, UT, IN, MO, and Kansas opening for national acts such as: Macabre, Fear Factory, Vader, Cephalic Carnage, Adema, Darkest Hour, Trust Co., Neurosis, Malevolent Creation, Dirty Rotten Imbeciles, Today is the Day, Living Sacrifice, and Napalm Death.

With a loyal fan base, I.D. has drawn audiences over 300 for their larger shows. The key has been their intense and energetic live performances full of chugging grooves, thrashing riffs, and a strong connection to the audience. Their unique approach is accentuated by the use of three vocals blending screams, growls and melodies, creatively and harmonically. Their music has been called addictive and they have been crowned as, "one of Colorado's top death-thrash bands with a strong live following!" by SSMT -- www.ssmt-reviews.com .

Immortal Dominion's members are: Ray Smith -- Guitars/Lead Vocals; Brian Villers -- Guitars/Vocals; Gabe Romero -- Bass; and Ben Huntwork -- Drums/Vocals.

The current project "Awakening -- the Revelation" is scheduled for release in May of 2005. It follows the album "Endure" and the EP "Birth". Having sold several thousand of their previous CDs, I.D. has high expectations for the release of "Awakening" that will be orchestrated through Alliance Entertainment via partnership with Hapiskratch Entertainment for world-wide distribution.

Devoutcast
Devoutcast
We are a hard rock band from humble Aurora, Colorado. Our ability to rock your soul is only surpassed by our ability to rock the stage!. Our hard-hitting, melodic sound is likely to leave you with a feeling of total awesomeness. Don't worry, this feeling is permanent and will only increase as we continue to play your favorite Devoutcast songs.

We combined the sounds of bands like A7X, BFMV, Ratt, and Metallica to create music that can only be described as one thing...WILD!

Our shows are exciting and totally wicked events! When Devoutcast takes the stage, it is impossible to stay in your seat. Your seat actually folds up and pushes you into crowd (true story). The music draws to your primal need to rock!...Sexually... ;D

So come rock with us!
