RATTLEHEAD (80s/90s Megadeth Tribute)
Chicago’s Rattlehead focus on the pre-2000 first half of Megadeth’s career, focusing on the deep cuts that you rarely ever hear at Megadeth shows these days. Featuring members of Beyond Deth and Air Raid.
We are Smash Potater from the desolate wastelands of Aurora, Illinois. We attempt to write memorable music tailored for moshing and prefer to mock typical thrash cliches rather than embrace them. We have conquered the small rural area known as Chicago and are now setting our sites on the rest of the world. Fire up the grills and bust out the Arizona because shit’s about to get real. Aww here it goes…..

Kaustik is a heavy metal band from Southern California generating exceedingly heavy, hook filled music influenced by numerous genres including: classical music, classic rock, jazz, punk, almost every metal sub-genre old to new, and even rap. This amalgamation of diverse ideas gives them a fresh, unique sound to be enjoyed by music fans from all walks of life.
Kaustik has released a self-titled album in 2011, and an EP, entitled “Forged in the Bones of Our Freedom”, in 2014. October 2016 will see a tour with thrash legends D.R.I., accompanied by the release of their politically fueled compilation EP, “Fuck Politics” on Black Voodoo Records, which will include music from both previous releases as well as two songs from their upcoming full length slated to be out in the spring of 2017.
Kaustik has played countless shows touring the country, most notably the southwest, performed at major music festivals such as Mayhem and Knotfest, and has shared the stage with some of music’s most legendary artists such as: Judas Priest, Rob Zombie, Korn, Nile, Twisted Sister, Gwar, and many more. Kaustik is now a prominent band who metal fans are talking about, are excited to see, and are anxious to hear what’s next.
