Cycle of Pain
www.facebook.com/pages/Cycle-of-Pain
 
John J.D. DeServio’s career as a bassist can be defined only as formidable and impressive. His time spent with Black Label Society has taken him around the world and made him a sought after bassist for clinics from Japan to South America and back. But long before he began globetrotting J.D. started out like most accomplished musicians, in the garage with a band and whiskey. 25 years later, that same band has emerged as Cycle of Pain with an intense and diverse self titled hard rock album.


 Though rooted in metal, the album’s 12 tracks delve into elements of funk, hip-hop and soul. The core of the band is the same with Gregg as lead vocals, Joe Taylor on guitar and Rich Monica (Tantric) on drums. Cycle Of Pain also features performances by Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy), Ray Luzier (Korn) Brian Tichy (Billy Idol), Sen Dog (Cypress Hill), Russ-T Cobb, Hugo Ferreira (Tantric), Marcus Ratzenboeck (Tantric), Clip Payne (P-funk), Burton C Bell (Ascension of Watchers, Fear Factory) & Russell Allen (Symphony X). The album is available in stores and online now!

 

Black Water Rising

BLACK WATER RISING is a collection of soul baring, angst ridden, riff heavy material that is proudly anchored in the foundations of traditional Hard Rock song writing. Giant guitar driven monster riffs served up on a bed of crushing grooves with soaring melodic vocals and big hooks. Basically, NO FRILLS RIFF ROCK! Lyrically the message is socially and politically driven by the dark times we live in. With darkness seemingly growing by the day, BLACK WATER RISING is a name that fits this band like a glove. The philosophy of BWR is simple, they are not looking to reinvent the wheel, they just want to give it a much needed alignment in these musically stale times.


Some say BWR is Hard Rock, Metal, Stoner, Southern Sludge, whatever... We set out to create a No Frills, Riff Raging, turbo charged, wall of pure kick ass Power Rock, we believe we have achieved that.
 
Lower the Veil
http://www.lowertheveil.com

“Their music comes from the bowels of the earth and indeed you can easily imagine its members giving a concert in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. They produce pure Heavy Rock greatly influenced by the California Stoner style of Kyuss or Karma To Burn”
Steven Akerfeldt - Music Waves
The included music is sorta Classic Rock orientated, with some Melodic Hardrock type of material as well, but also here and there (“All that’s real”) we can hear the SOUNDGARDEN/ALICE IN CHAINS type of lowtuned 1990s Altmetal. However, a song like the semi-ballad “The sawyer” is a very strong and quite melodic tune, with some well-thought lyrics.”
Strutterzine

“This is a band that explodes on stage with strong conviction, a clear and succinct sound, and an innate ability to captivate an audience from the first toe tapping bass line to the last hip swaying drum beat. Lower the Veil is an experience. It's a kind of sound reminiscent of the blues of the 70's, the edgy hard rock of the 80's, and the progressive melodies of the 90's, yet still refreshingly current. It's rock and roll. Pure simple and sexy rock and roll.”
“Drawing from a variety of influences, while carving out a path of their own, Lower The Veil have really shown it is possible to provide a caress of steel, making The 100th Monkey a classy slice of gritty and rough, yet smooth and shiny rock, that shocks, seduces and soothes as it slams home.”


Gaggle of Cocks
http://www.facebook.com/gaggleofcocks


we're from new york city... we play intense hard rock... there are three of us (sometimes four)... yes, that constitutes a gaggle... who cares .. we're low class and kick ass... long live American Trash!

“I personally find them in the same vein as Pantera and bands of their ilk, taking names and casting blame, they are what is best of the Hard Rock movement, no glam, no sparkle, just hard edge and driving rhythms and a drum beat that calls to the fight, to the war against mediocrity in music, a Gaggle of Cocks will be heard.”
Joseph Timmons - Xombiewoof Magazine
“Not since Melvins, Antiseen, Dwarves, Butthole Surfers and Agony Column has a band sounded so incendiary.”

Must See Artist: Water Seed from (NOLA)

The Legendary Dobbs is excited to have this amazing touring artist come through Philadelphia
on Thursday, November 21st,
show starts at 8pm.
w/ Michael and the Mooncussers , The Tree Rats
To learn more about them see below
 
 
What do you call a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans’ TremĂ©, the drama and ecstasy of the church’s wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament? What do you name sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once? How do you label music that simultaneously ev...okes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies? Here we call it Water Seed.


The rhythm section next, funks things up with You'll Come and Turn you On. Just try to stop knodding your head on these ones.”
Jazz and Soul
 
“it's a great mix of jazz, hip-hop and soul. I also like that it retains a "live" sound, especially when used in tandem with more synthetic sounds. My favorite tracks are Hues of Blue, Feel Like I Do, Can We Dance (waiting for a remix to that one) and Adam & Eve.”
Carlton Hargro - Creative Loafing
 
“The show ended with everyone standing and clapping as if it were church, and then the offering plate came into the audience.”
Live New Orleans Music
 
“Water Seed gives me hope!!!”
George Porter(Funk Legend)
