Iwrestledabearonce just wrapped a four-week run on the Vans Warped Tour where they received critical accolades for their one-of-a-kind, fearless live shows. Jonathan Tully of the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel praised, “Iwrestledabearonce’s Krysta Cameron has a roar that any metal band would be proud of…” (July 25, 2010). Elsewhere, TheSilverTongueOnline.com said IWABO are “continuing to redefine what avant-garde means,” adding, “Vocalist Krysta Cameron wailed, shrieked, growled, chirped, and squealed along in tandem with the rest of the band…Playing fan favorites, including ‘Tastes Like Kevin Bacon’ and ‘Alaskan Flounder Basket,’ Iwrestledabearonce put on a great show” (August 2, 2010).
About The Bands
Known for their relentless touring and one-of-a-kind, fearless live shows, Iwrestledabearonce–vocalist Krysta Cameron, guitarists Steven Bradley and John Ganey, bassist Mike “Rickshaw” Martin and drummer Mikey Montgomery–are touring in support of their recently released It’s All Happening (Century Media Records) three disc deluxe reissue CD, which includes the It’s All Remixed bonus CD and DVD, featuring a variety of remixes and exclusive video. According to Rick Florino of ArtistDirect.com, “…the Louisiana electro-tech-grind-jazz-techno-metal outfit have a sound that’s so distinctly deadly it’s earth-shattering. There’s no genre safe from Iwrestledabearonce’s unbreakable sonic grapple…” (July 21, 2010).
Eyes Set To Kill
Phoenix based Eyes Set To Kill has quickly become one of the most talked about groups in the scene. With fan and critical acclaim at peak levels, the band has been featured as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s “100 Bands You Need To Know,” are currently featured on the cover of Outburn Magazine, and were nominated for a Revolver Golden Gods award alongside Ozzy, Alice In Chains and Avenged Sevenfold. The band just completed a stint on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour where they headlined the Ernie Ball stage in support of their new album Broken Frames, which was produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember).
Utah’s paramount metalcore/deathcore band was the first band signed to the newly formed Artery Recordings, a joint venture imprint label of Razor & Tie and The Artery Foundation. With three guitarists, double bass drumming, low bass, and unparalleled vocals, Chelsea Grin was the ideal band to spearhead Artery Recordings. Desolation Of Eden is Chelsea Grin’s first full-length album and was released on February 16, reaching #21 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart less than a month after its release.
The Chariot continues to be a driving force in hardcore and punk music after seven years and counting in the underground scene. In May 2009 they released their latest full-length, Wars and Rumors of Wars, of which Alternative Press said, “The only rumor that should be spread about this album is that it’s The Chariot’s best yet.” Hailed by both fans and peers alike for their brutal, thrashing, awe-filled live performances, The Chariot’s shows are not to be missed.
New England post-hardcore group Vanna have spent the last several years on a personal journey, and it’s the experience of living on the road that has helped them to discover who they truly are. After years of relentless touring and musical growth, the band has found balance with a solid lineup and several releases under their belt. Their journey continues this fall with the release of their much anticipated Honest Hearts EP.
