More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

At Fates (formerly known as At Fates Mercy) is an Adelaide based alternative metal/progressive rock four piece, fast gaining momentum and popularity in their home base of South Australia. Currently independently managed, At Fates. have dropped their mercy of old and are enjoying the success of a consistent line up of members since 2012, demonstrating talents for writing and performing complex and unique post-melodic-hardcore influenced sounds, with distinct metal/progressive rock influence. The band has already shared stages with the like of ‘Choidos’ (US), ‘In Hearts Wake’, ‘Alesana’ (US), ‘IWRESTLEDABEARONCE’ (US), ‘Buried In Verona’, ‘Hand Of Mercy’, ‘Storm The Sky’, ‘Wish For Wings’ and ‘Hellions’, to name just a few...

After independently releasing a self titled 3 track single back in 2010, At Fates. followed this up in 2012 by releasing ‘REBUILD, REWIND’ – their highly anticipated debut EP, recorded at Chapel Lane Studios in Adelaide. ‘REBUILD, REWIND’ was jointly produced and co-mixed by former Sony Music Australia - Head of Australian Artists, Wayne Ringrow, alongside At Fates. with mixing and overall sound engineering undertaken by Gabriel Agostino (At Sunset, Hilltop Hoods), before Swedish mastering engineer Peter in de Betou (Bring Me The Horizon, Millencolin) mastered and ultimately completed the overall package.

2013 saw the release of their follow-up single "Setting Darkness On Fire", accompanied by the band’s debut music video which premiered on ‘Kill Your Stereo’ and Triple J's ‘Short.Fast.Loud’. The single also sat at the top of Triple J’s Unearthed Metal charts for 3 consecutive weeks, during which time the video made rotation on Channel [V]’s ‘Loud’ program. Mixed and mastered by Outhouse Studio's John Mitchell (Architects, Funeral For A Friend) in the UK, the single led the band back to the studio in early 2014 to record their eagerly anticipated debut LP album.

Enlisting the production of Melbourne based Samuel K Sproull (Calling All Cars, The Butterfly Effect, Closure In Moscow) and once again bringing John Mitchell onboard, the band released a new, exciting and redefining sound in the form of concept album ‘CHAPTERS’, which has been described as boldly unique as it is captivating. To celebrate the new direction, the band hit the road on their first Australian tour, sharing the record with new fans live interstate. Not slowing down since the album’s release and tour, At Fates. are about to release their second music video to accompany their new single, the first song written as a four piece titled “Pointless Philosophy”, before again hitting the road on their second national tour.

With an energetic show and great eagerness to share their new direction with fans both old and new, At Fates. seem poised to make waves in the diverse hardcore scene both interstate and abroad. With new name, line up and music – expect the good old times of At Fates., with no mercy.

In Your Memory - "I'll Make a Man Out of You"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

In Your Memory bio: Based out of Washington, DC this post-hardcore 5 pieces act formed in 2012. With a jazz-netic twist to to the genre leaning on their punk rock influences. The band made its debut in 2013 with In Your Memory their first self titled EP. During these past few years, the band had a bit of style changes, quick additions and lineup adjustments which finally firmed up in 2014 with a roster consisting of singer Omar Veras, guitarists Casey Allen and Alex Scott, drummer Johnathan Shephard and bassists Troy Humphrey. They followed up quickly that year, releasing Reflections while they slowly built their credentials. This album was seen as something of a breakthrough for the band since it expanded their audience which months later, per followers request, the band went on to releasing their first video "Layers of Lies" in October of 2014.They don't strive in being perfect but if your looking for personality and character with a passionate stage presence you have met your match.

About The Video: We spent several years wanted to take a classic track and make it our own not only by music but video too. Here is another variation of the great disney track, I'll Make a Man Out of You. We modernized the idea of the movie in which its a epic battle preparation to fight the "huns". In this case we gave the "huns" the role of girls who want their significant other to be the idealized "man". At least what we are grown to think is proper with some funny IYM takes of course.

Scheisse Minnelli - "Cafe Fix"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Scheisse Minnelli bio: After backpacking around Europe and the Middle East Mr. Samuel El Action decided to set roots in Germany the year 2003. The idea of playing the California punk he grew up with here in Europe enthralled him on a daily basis. He gathered two German and one Californian punks and hung out at the now legendary "Shit House" in a small bavarian village. They had no heat, no hot water and shared the house with a bunch of drunken construction workers from Eastern Europe. This house became later the place of the infamous Shit House Wrecking Party (the night when Scheisse Minnelli fled to Aschaffenburg to escape from the village-police). Scheisse Minnelli would soon do their first tour through Holland and Belgium which ended with an opening slot for Poison Idea at the now legendary Lintfabriek. Since then they have played about 500 gigs all over Europe, Mexico and the USA and completed a successful tour in Indonesia in 2014.

About The Video: After living in Germany and travelling Europe for several years, ex-Californians Sam & Mikey Minnelli stumbled upon the Bahnhofsviertel in Frankfurt / Main. It reminded both of the dark and dangerous Mission District in San Francisco during the late 80s and early 90s, before gentrification and all these google yuppies moved in and pushed out all the poor people and the dive bars. One day near Central Station there was a shooting in front of "Cafe Fix", a social project place where people go to shoot up heroin. Sam and Mikey witnessed all of it standing nearby just by pure random. Later this resulted into the song and video....

The Sharp Lads - "The Kids Don't Want No Rock 'N Roll"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Impossible riffs. Obscene showmanship. An ass-groovin’ rhythm section. New punk songs with catchy melodies, the likes of which you never thought you’d hear again. The Sharp Lads released their debut album in the summer of 2011, and unleashed a campaign of live rock n’ roll shock and awe, unlike anything the world had ever witnessed before. And now they’re back!

Taking lessons learned on their home turf of NYC and on the road everywhere else they could, playing to crowds of sweaty loyalists and stunned new converts alike, with no concern for their own personal safety or worries about anything other than the moment, the Lads have emerged from their experiences with Death by Misadventure, their second album released Spring 2014. Dave Tierney leads the charge with schizo vocals alternating between desperate screams and genre bending melodies. Rob Fudge shreds alien riffs that make you feel like your first time all over again while Kurt Wahlstrom holds down the bowel shaking bottom end playing a bass carved from a Jamaican treehouse. Driving the beat like a hell spawned hot rod with its brake lines cut, Steve Dios is blasting these songs with a frightening fury all the way to their grisly finish.

Surrender your sons and daughters. It’s already too late.

Teamster - "Die Well"

More about the band... Shop!

Artist Bio:

Teamster is a hardcore band based in Washington DC. The band formed in late 2011 and has been raging since, dedicated to a fierce and pummeling brand of hardcore, not for the weak. Drawing inspiration from east coast US styles like the NYHC sound of Sick of it All and Madball, to the early midwest hardcore bands like Negative Approach and The Fix, Teamster seldom lets up. After initially forming with Rich Dolinger on second guitar and then recording an album with Hector Moncada (NYC's Show of Force and one time touring member of Cro Mags) on lead guitar, the band settled into it's current four piece line-up.

Drummer Sean Saley is a first wave veteran of hardcore, having played in bands like Government Issue from DC and Starvation Army and The Guns, both from Cleveland,during the 80s. He also spent three years with legendary doom metal band Pentagram and currently also drums for heavy giants The Skull (ex-Trouble.)

Singer Jon Moran has been involved in scenes from Buffalo to DC, has fronted numerous bands such as Fit for Duty and also currently sings for Victory in Death. Guitarist Nam Dong and bassist Juston Reynolds are longtime friends, having grown up in the DC scene and collaborating in former bands like Eastwind.

Teamster has been playing around the east coast, midwest, and mid-Atlantic states since forming, recording it's first demo in 2012 with Ken Olden (Youth of Today, Worlds Collide) at the desk. Two tracks from those sessions were released as a split 7" with Buffalo band Source of Relapse. In 2014, Teamster recorded seven tracks with Mike Hatalak (It Dies Today, Wreckage) engineering. The 2014 and 2012 demos were released as a full length self-titled CD in late 2014. The CD is available through Downgrade Records.
