Artist of the Week: Mechina

20 Dec

From the band’s facebook page –

For the last 5 years, one band has defied the norm of metal and continued the progression of musical originality logo1_1288578578throughout the Midwest. Music that bombards every sense, creates every form of emotion, and reinforces the new age of modern metal. With the mixture of precision inspired rhythms, orchestral melodies, creative and unorthodox lyrical content, and a plethora of intriguing and intense atmospheres, Mechina has created a unique presence in the future of metal.



Artist of the Week: Water On Mercury

12 Dec


From Water On Mercury’s official site:

Water On Mercury is the instrumental music project of guitarist Tim Gavin. Tim is a family man with a day job as a CPA, but he has an undying passion for heavy music. This project is the culmination of years of writing and producing music at home.

Tim was a key member of the now defunct Dominion from Chicago, which also featured former Otep drummer, Brian Wolff, and current Gemini Syndrome vocalist, Aaron Nordstrom. Dominion was a force to be reckoned with on the Chicago metal scene. Tim brings the same intensity and musical intelligence to his new project. Having been compared to Scale the Summit, TesseracT, Opeth, and Cloudkicker, the similarities do not end there. His influences are many and balanced to form a truly unique sound.


Water On Mercury’s new album will be released soon.
