-from San Francisco, CA
-CASTLE was forged in San Francisco in 2009 and released their debut full-length, In Witch Order, on Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album Of The Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway. Shortly thereafter, the band joined the Prosthetic Records roster in North America and released both their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Blacklands, which led to a Canadian JUNO nomination for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year”, and 2014’s influential follow-up, Under Siege.

Since the release of their first album, CASTLE, which consists of vocalist/bassist Elizabeth Blackwell, guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis and various touring and recording drummers, have maintained a relentless tour schedule, performing over six-hundred shows worldwide alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut, and Pentagram among many others as well as appearances at some of the underground’s largest fests including Roadburn, and the London and Berlin Desertfests and the band's first ever tour of Japan last year.

-The San Francisco/Bay Area has long been regarded as a key hub for cultural diversity and liberated artistic creativity, so it comes as no surprise to observe an ambitious group such as Grayceon rise from the crux of this nerve center and truly flourish. With each subsequent release, the band continues to progress and strengthen their acclaim through a gritty determination to regularly challenge extreme music's confines.

Over the course of 12 years, four proper full-lengths and one EP, this trio comprised of little more than one guitar, one cello, and one set of drums has managed to tackle the full spectrum of heavy music's extensive clutch of emotions. Pummeling sludgy metal quickly carves into fiery post-punk that's knotted within epic experimental rock, and it's all blanketed with the additional allure of ample use of mellow stretches to fully round out the pattern. Words such as "enterprising," "unconventional" and "dynamic" have all been utilized in an attempt to encapsulate the band's overall design, but the absolute consensus remains: Grayceon thrives as a splendid anomaly amongst an ever-increasing sea of peers.

Grayceon continues to hammer forward and deliver in spades for those who thoroughly enjoy being challenged by a truly progressive band. Hop in, listen up, and enjoy the ride.

Hazzard's Cure

--San Francisco, California, based Hazzard's Cure is a four piece heavy metal band. Not so easily lumped into a sub genre, one thing that seems agreeable to all is that their sound is distinctively “Bay Area,” drawing more inspiration from their contemporary colleagues than the masters of the past, shooting off at odd angles from the generic sludge, doom and black metal sounds that are clogging the web waves these days.
