MARS RED SKY
Greenbeard is a desert rock trio from Austin, TX created in 2014. Greenbeard’s sound is a sonic gathering of early British heavy metal, psychedelia, desert guitar riffs, & stoner rock.
In 2002, we started jamming and cultivating music. We have gone by other band names in the past, some of you may remember us as Life Dos, What Once Was, or A Venue X. We have evolved and our transformation is now what we call Coyote Man! A Chicago instrumental band with some progressive flair.
UNTO THE EARTH
Unto the Earth is a four piece metal band out of Chicago, straddling the lines between stoner, desert, doom, and sludge, with shoegaze and heavy psych influences. Formed in 2019 by guitarist Mike Yoshida and bassist/vocalist/instrumentalist Simeon Papacostas, two long-time friends who first started playing together back in the mid-90s, along with lead guitarist Jed Jacobs, the group added another longtime friend and former bandmate Brant Maze on drums to complete the lineup. Together they have embarked on a musical odyssey that combines driving drums, melodic basslines, layered guitars, and evocative lyrics, while paying tribute to the influences of their youth.
Inspired by a diverse group of influences like Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, Kyuss, Hum, Elder, and others, as well as giants such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd, Unto the Earth writes songs that feature heavy riffs, soaring guitar harmonies, and droning, melodic vocals, interspersed with atmospheric interstitials and psychedelic interludes that all combine to take the listener on a cosmic journey.
