Kaustik is a heavy metal band from Southern California generating exceedingly heavy, hook filled music influenced by numerous genres including: classical music, classic rock, jazz, punk, almost every metal sub-genre old to new, and even rap. This amalgamation of diverse ideas gives them a fresh, unique sound to be enjoyed by music fans from all walks of life.

Kaustik has released a self-titled album in 2011, and an EP, entitled "Forged in the Bones of Our Freedom", in 2014. October 2016 will see a tour with thrash legends D.R.I., accompanied by the release of their politically fueled compilation EP, “Fuck Politics” on Black Voodoo Records, which will include music from both previous releases as well as two songs from their upcoming full length slated to be out in the spring of 2017.

Kaustik has played countless shows touring the country, most notably the southwest, performed at major music festivals such as Mayhem and Knotfest, and has shared the stage with some of music's most legendary artists such as: Judas Priest, Rob Zombie, Korn, Nile, Twisted Sister, Gwar, and many more. Kaustik is now a prominent band who metal fans are talking about, are excited to see, and are anxious to hear what’s next.

The Goat Hill Massacre
The Goat Hill Massacre
he Goat Hill Massacre originally started with Joe and Andre under the band name of "Once Upon Atrocity" in 2007. Over the years there have been many line up changes, several side projects each, and a seven year hiatus that included Joe spending three years in Nebraska.

In 2012 while brain storming for a new name The Goat Hill Massacre was uttered and has stuck ever since. Joe and Danielle moved back to Denver in the fall of 2014. Since the dynamic duo had problems with getting band members to stick it was decided Danielle, Joe's wife, would be the drummer for the band. She started with a five gallon paint bucket and a pair of drum sticks. That quickly evolved into a very tribal sound with two bass drums sitting up right like toms and a floor tom in the middle. There was also a female vocalist and a second guitarist that were apart of the project after Danielle joining, but they left for personal reasons making the band a permanent three piece.

In the Spring of 2016 after starting to book summer shows, Danielle decided to take on a full kit. Learning from a few youtube videos how to play a full drum kit between the end of April and mid June to accommodate a July debut. The very first show we played as a three piece was at The Pit Stop in Denver June 30th 2016 last minute to support Everybody Panic on tour with Hydraform and Rise As Legends. We've played at least once a month to finish out the year. Our first EP Morbid Dreams was recorder in November thanks to our Friends Saphyre Rain and mastered by Inficiers bassist and front man Simon.

In January it was decided to start looking for a second guitarist to fill out the band's sound. Several people were suggested and some auditioned, but none felt quite right. Anthony was the last to audition in February and we became a four piece.

Since then we debuted our second guitarist at The Whiskey for the FOCO MX music festival at the end of April, we released our EP at Moe's Original BBQ May 13th with Smack Factor, Sanity's Edge, and Infinite Conscious, and headlined The Moon Room at The Summit June 10th in celebration of our one year anniversary of playing shows together.

It's been an amazing year of writing and developing as a band and we're looking forward to what's coming over the next few years.
