ZERO DOWN "NO LIMIT TO THE EVIL" // COMING SOON ON CD AND DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
Formed in 2002, Zero Down consists of five veteran musicians from the Seattle Metal/Punk Rock scene that cast iron 70's Arena Rock and NWOBHM guitar riffs with hardcore punk intensity. Zero Down has shared the stage with a variety of national acts including UFO, Motley Crue, Diamond Head, Y&T, Accept, and many more over the years, and are ready to unleash their new CD "No Limit To The Evil", which will be released at the end of November 2014 via Minotauro Records, and which includes artwork by the master of Metal art, Ed Repka (Megadeth, 3 Inches of Blood, Death, Misfits, etc). Their new opus screams 80’s Metal in the Accept/Judas Priest/Maiden/Scorpions tradition.
SUPER MASSIVE BLACK HOLES "CALCULATIONS OF THE ANCIENTS" // OUT NOW ON CD AND DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
Super Massive Black Holes was formed in mid-2010, after Denver Bergreen (guitar), freshly in need of a band, decided to start a casual play-anything”project with his good friend Jake Reimer (guitar). Shortly thereafter, Denver had a chance encounter with Clay Steadman (drums), and he was snapped up and added to the roster. Then the last piece was acquired and Tristan Peterson (bass) completed the lineup.
Recently, the band has been consistently writing, recording and performing. Late 2012 saw the release of a 4-track EP, and several opportunities for shows and festivals the next year, including Calgary Metalfest, with headliners Skeletonwitch, Intronaut, and Scale The Summit. The winter of 2013/2014 was spent creating and finishing the band's first full-length effort "Calculations Of The Ancients". The record features 9 tracks packed with powerful grooves and spiraling melodies, and is unashamed to venture between many musical styles. Lyrically, the album contains concepts based on scientific principles, wrapped in metaphors from human experiences.
