Astronoid
Astronoid
Astronoid is a five-piece band from Boston, MA with influences ranging from Devin Townsend and Mew to Alcest and Cynic. Their first full length album, being released by Blood Music in 2016, is part of an evolving experience that complements their two acclaimed EP's from 2012-13, "Stargazer" and "November". The driving rhythms, subtle time signatures and soaring vocal harmonies combine to create an auditory cloud to lift you into the ether. There's always something new to discover hidden within the dense layers of thrashy guitar riffs and euphoric vocals. Lyrically, the record conveys a disillusioned and hopeful view of the world as a whole.
Replacire
Replacire
“I've listened to a lot of bands who wear the progressive death metal dress this year, and most of these bands are just trying to fit Opeth's outfit into their progressively-paced music, but finally I've discovered Replacire, which has totally changed my opinion about this kind of music. I didn't imagine that a band from Boston will have the ability to make a professional progressive/extreme metal record without the need of any Swedish copied materials, and that's why I consider the debut album, "The Human Burden", one of the most original progressive/death metal releases since Blackwater Park. The technical death metal atmosphere and the butchery of the growling vocals have really blown my mind, and the gentle clean vocals that dig some memorable parts into the brutality of the guitars are the main things that make this band special. You wont have the time to predict any movement inside these insane tracks because the neck-breaking breaks and the fillings make it so.....”

"The Human Burden is an intricate technical death metal affair but gives a lot of room to Opethian passages and subdued grooves. Replacire have a complex songwriting format down pat, but not in a showy way; they use their skill to craft distinct songs. Truly one of the few bands I would feel comfortable calling progressive death metal."

"These guys are an eclectic mix of (drawing inspiration from) Opeth, Psyopus, and as far reaching as Frank Zappa. It adds up to a wholly original take on heavy music They are strikingly precise, and musically progressive. Put together in a completely compelling and professional stage show."

-Karl Beuchner - Lead vocalist of Earth Crisis, and Freya

“Replacire blend elements of death, progressive and modern metal, execute it all with crack musicianship and showcase it inside musically interesting compositions. Their sound should cross over and appeal to fans of various schools of metal.”

Artifacts
Artifacts
We are Artifacts, this is who we are and this is our story. After years of jamming and wanting to produce music, Zach Gailes and Christian Logue went on the long and seemingly endless search to find who they were, not only as musicians, but as people and working it into their sound. Even more daughnting was the task of finding others like them to meld perfectly together. It was only natural that long time friend and jam partner Dany Annous join in on vocals. With the soul of the group beginning to form and a passion building, they continued. Once seeing a jam written by a friend and fellow musician Matt Ervin it was clear that he had the talent and heart the band needed to be successful and was invited into the group. Like the trio before him it was obvious he had the drive and passion shared by his bandmates, further fuelling the fire of love toward music they all shared. Continuing on progressively toward their way to becoming a true band Anshuman Goswami of Upon Reflection joined them filling the vacant guitar slot. It was clear from the beginning that he was truely talented and well versed with his instrument but what was unseen was the perfect fit and final peice of the puzzle that he was to Artifacts. All five of the members have a place, a role that can't just be filled in. It was the perfect outfit for the band to express itself. The five of them together are peices to a whole that can't be replicated, they are Artifacts.

Wings Denied
Wings Denied
Wings Denied are prog metal for the girlfriends of prog metal fans. As a band, we strive to balance the de-tuned riffs of djent, the atmosphere of post-rock, and the time-signature modulation of progressive rock and metal, while still writing catchy stuff!

Reviews:
"Balls. Personal courage. Wings Denied. Interchangeable words, my progger friends. Awake has the hard power-punch of the Deftones and thematic progressions of Monuments- an excellent first effort from this Washington D.C. based band. Their carved-in melodies never falter." - Dante's Prog Blog Inferno (June 15)
