Southern Culture On The Skids
Has been consistently recording and touring around the world since its inception in 1983, when Rick Miller was a grad student at UNC-Chapel Hill. The current lineup (Dave Hartman – drums; Mary Huff – bass and vocals;Rick Miller – guitar and vocals) has been playing together for over 30 years. The band’s musical journey has taken them from all night NC house parties to late night network talk shows, and from performing at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan to rockin’ out for the inmates at NC Correctional Facilities. Their music has been featured in movies and TV, and used to sell everything from diamonds to pork sausage, and their legendary live shows are a testament to the therapeutic powers of foot-stomping, butt-shaking rock and roll.

Show No Mercy
Wrath of Typhon
An American hip hop group from Placentia, Orange County, California. The band officially formed in 1996, describing their eclectic sound as “psychedelic hip-hop punk rock”. The group’s original lineup consisted of D-Loc, Saint Dog, and Johnny Richter.
Psychotica Are an American Industrial Band
Formed in 1994 by Pat Briggs and Tommy Salmorin with a band consisting of Paul Kostabi, cellist Enrique Tiru Velez, backing vocalist Reeka, and drummer Buz. They have released three albums. Psychotica are best known for their participation in the 1996 Lollapalooza tour which also included Soundgarden, the Ramones, the Screaming Trees and Metallica.
In 1998, Psychotica added guitarist Clint Walsh and released Espina. A tour with Jack Off Jill and Switchblade Symphony followed. Shortly after the tour, Briggs moved to Los Angeles. Briggs and Kostabi went in different directions and Psychotica disbanded.
In the summer of 2009, Briggs and Kostabi reunited to begin work on the fourth Psychotica album. Psychotica partnered with Christian Menses and his independent record label, Toxic Shock Records to re-release Pandemic.
“DEMIGOD PT. 1” now available on MHSM Records
Unlimited Gravity (Ronnie Weberg) is a multi-talented, life-long musician, originating from the heart of the contemporary electronic music scene – Denver, Colorado. The Unlimited Gravity sound is best described as an ingenious alchemical hybrid, combining the chaotic energy of crunchy crunk beats with the calculated precision and intensity of a classically trained composer. Setting himself apart from the masses, Ronnie has the unique ability to masterfully create the most marvelous dichotomy of sound within each track. Two dynamically oppositional forces are pitted against each other in a musical battle royale; the result is always a titanic struggle of epic proportions, from which only Unlimited Gravity could possibly emerge victorious.
Silvertung Will Be Releasing Their New Album
(BUT, AT WHAT COST??!) through Thermal Entertainment on February 15, 2019. The lead single and video DONE MY BEST is schedule to debut the week of January 13th.
Since blazing onto the rock scene, Silvertung have proven that hard work, grit and great songs are still the recipe for success in the competitive hard rock landscape. With three albums and one EP released, they’ve amazed fans and critics alike by hitting the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Chart three times with their singles – “Never Too Late,” “Face The Music” and “You & Me”.
The band’s music videos have garnered over 1.5 million+ YouTube views and are still climbing. In addition, the band received two Maryland Music Awards – “Best Heavy Metal Band” and “Breakout Artist.” Silvertung performed live at the televised event.
Progressive metal luminaries Monuments are back
Their most innovative work yet is their new album, Phronesis. The transcontinental metallers sated fans and made new ones across Europe, Australia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, sharing the stage with Protest the Hero, Animals As Leaders, Karnivool, After the Burial, and Devin Townsend.
When Monuments returned home, it was time to heal up physically and mentally. The opportunity to mend minds and heal wounds not only fortified Monuments, it afforded primary songwriter John Browne space to craft Monuments’ best material to date. Coupled with vocalist Chris Barretto’s “blank slate” lyrical mandate, Phronesis isn’t about starting over but rather moving forward. “I find that I’ve always thrived when writing about subjects that trouble me,” says guitarist/principal songwriter John Browne. “I always have written music to objectively relate it to points in time, points of chaos, and how it related to my universe. That made the writing process difficult for me, writing as a blank slate with no relation to an event involved in my perception. My personal relationship with the meaning of the record started at ‘Stygian Blue,’ which was the second song I wrote back in 2015. This song came to be while I was in the darkest place I’ve ever been in my 32 years. We all had a bunch of issues that needed time to let heal, so in between writing we were fixing our broken souls.”
Monuments are on the leading edge of musical virtuosity, vocal superiority, and lyrical smarts. Progressive metal is ready for Monuments to take the genre to new heights with Phronesis. “Phronesis is definitely a turning point,” says Browne, “The production is better, the songs are solid, and it’s brought us back together again after a difficult few years. I believe the record is solid and I’m excited for everyone to hear it and hopefully enjoy it.”
MONUMENTS are: Chris Barretto (vocals), John Browne (guitar), Olly Steele (guitar), Adam Swan (bass), and Daniel ‘Lango’ Lang (drums, samples). Expect to see Monuments on stage at HMAC 2019.
