What: They play symphonic metal. Their name reminds me of a spooky ghost town that is within an hour of where I live. Gallia is also a little spooky. Do they go on ghost hunts in between gigs? I think that whenever it’s possible, Gallia should do a concert/ghost hunt. Play music and hunt for ghosts at the same event.
Why: Besides being spooky, they are pretty kickass. I’m hoping that they get the following that they deserve – millions and millions of fans that love metal and ghost hunting.
Band Members: Franccesca De Struct, Jonni Law, Ben Levi, Nathan Youngblood, Art Diharce
What: Heavy Metal band since 2016.
Why: Fate DeStroyed rocks as much as anyone. They do a pretty awesome cover of “In the Pines.” It would be a shame if you missed out on supporting a band with so much potential for heavy metal greatness.
What: Symphonic metal. Metal for history buffs. Their last album was more like a trilogy of albums about 3 historical figures: Anne Boleyn, Anne Frank and Anastasia Romanova. So if you are a fan of symphonic metal and history, Ex Libris is the band for you.
Who: Dominhuz of Mexico City. The name Dominhuz is derived from the Latin word Dominus.
The current line-up: Emir Bucio (Guitar, composition and arrangements), Alejandro Altamirano (Drums and arrangements) and Sharon Portilla (Voice and writer). I’m not sure if Vlad Landeros (Bass, composition) is still with the band.
What: Symphonic Metal in Spanish.
Why: They rock in any language. You will be missing out if you don’t give them a chance.
Marta Gabriel – vocals, guitar Andy Wave – rhythm and lead guitar Eric Juris – rhythm and lead guitar Blazej Grygiel – bass guitar Cederick Forsberg – drums
What: They are a heavy metal band with a new album, Tales of Fire and Ice. If you are interested in learning how to play guitar or improve your guitar skills, Crystal Viper guitarist Eric Juris is available for online lessons. Contact him at his Facebook page: Eric Juris.
Why: Crystal Viper is doing their part to keep rock alive during these difficult times.
If you are looking for a new favorite metalcore band, The Anchor should definitely be on the list. Who is going to tell if you are rockin’ out to The Anchor in the privacy of your own home? Plus, we’ll all have time to get psyched up for their next concert – fingers crossed.
Who: The Anchor of Denver, Colorado. Linzey, Sham, Cory, Adam, Ryan
What: Metalcore with a rock goddess. Check out their album, Breathe.
Why: They are badass. They also have awesome merch. Go buy some to support the band.
