BLEED FOR THE FALLEN
Bleed for the Fallen (BFTF) has been molded over nearly a decade of hard work, struggle, and perseverance. Comprised of members who all came from different musical backgrounds and tastes. They bring rock, punk, blues, and above all else metal.
DELIVER US FROM EVIL
DELIVER US FROM EVIL is a fully functional metal band from Southern Indiana that has already set itself apart in the Midwest. Armed with brutal guitar riffs, technical percussion, thick bass grooves, and throat shredding vocals, all at lightning speeds and stupefying precision, DELIVER US FROM EVIL is a force to be reckoned with.
TWO TON ANVIL
“Two Ton Anvil is an original rock band from the Chicago area. Their sound combines different elements of rock and metal in a heavy but memorable format that rocks on command, but yet is “easy” to listen. That, along with the not-so-common practice of having dual lead singers in a band and very clever songwriting, has given them a different and somewhat unique sound that has definitely caught the public’s ear in their time together.”
“Sex, drugs, metal – and war. ARMORED ASSAULT combines these elements to create an all-out attack on the senses. Rob “Moonboots” Suttner, Elliot “Gordy McKlitz” Moser, Tommy “Gonzo Fonzarelli” Bellino, Mark “Chode” Suttner, and Andy “Panther Pussy” Pindelski make up the group of brave soldiers who have set their targets on the world. General Panther Pussy barks out orders as Colonel Moonboots leads the charge on the frontlines. Backed by the tank-like Special Ops rhythm section of Gonzo, Gordy and Chode – complete with buzzsaw guitars and thundering bass – the warpath is ready to crush all who stand in its way. ARMORED ASSAULT can lead one into a false sense of security with songs like “Salvation On A Chain” and “Pit of Torment” only to breakout into pure sonic mayhem of songs like “God of War” and “RIP,” thus rendering the listener into a homicidal frenzy. ARMORED ASSAULT takes no prisoners…because it runs them over and flattens them into submission…”
Panzer was first formed in the Spring of 2009. The band first jammed on covers whilst searching for a steady bassist and solidifying their goals. After a few months Billy McCartney was added to the band and the band spent the next several months writing and rehearsing original material in addition to a shrinking list of cover tunes. The band began recording a self-produced demo of four original tracks in late February 2010, which was finished in late March. After a brief hiatus over the summer, the band has since been writing more material, and playing gigs. There are plans to re-record the demo in December 2010 and possibly record a full-length in Spring 2011.
