Earthless (San Diego,CA)

Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS' sound has been called "A sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning", earning it the title of "California's loudest band". The group delivers "one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock," leading to one reviewer stating that the band's "epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn't afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return."

"EARTHLESS "From the Ages" (Tee Pee) is the first album in six years by the San Diego psychedelic band Earthless, who make songs in long chunks of episodic form via wah-wah pedal, riff and groove; they're expert practitioners of an outdated art. Oct. 8" - The New York Times

"a very good rock 'n' roll trio with a deep-groove rhythm section" - Pitchfork

"an absolutely apocalyptic brand of instrumental stoner-psychedelic-doom that relies on each player basically being a total powerhouse carrying an equal (and very heavy) load; I'd say the closest analogue is probably Jimi Hendrix with the Band Of Gypsies (or the caustic fusion of Miles Davis's post-Bitches Brew albums such as On The Corner or Big Fun). From The Ages does a pretty excellent job of capturing Earthless's remarkable abilities, and for that it's an essential document, although I honestly feel they're one of the few bands on this planet whom you ABSOLUTELY MUST see live." - Stereogum

" of the year's best and wildest albums" - SPIN

"Despite their far-out band name, Earthless sound born of the Third Stone From the Sun on their third album, locking into Hendrix-inspired grooves and jamming out in a way that's both heavy and somehow separate from the lineage of Black Sabbath." - ROLLING STONE

Venomous Maximus (Houston, TX)

Venomous Maximus is a Metal band from Houston, TX. The sound combines intense, unabashed metal riffing that locks into heavy rock grooves featuring interjected dual leads and surprisingly darkened atmospheres. Add to it the distinctive voice of towering front man Gregg Higgins and his unorthodox, unsettling tone, and unholy sinister laugh
