Hot Lunch
-from San Francisco, CA
-Hot Lunch is a punk ‘n’ roll band from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area that specializes in getting loud, getting weird and getting rad. The quartet’s unique blend of brown-acid skate-rock and wah-fuzz proto-metal was born in the bowels of skatanic rituals, biker beer busts and wizard staff meetings.

The Lord Weird Slough Feg
-from San Francisco, CA
-One of the most inventive and unique bands to emerge from the American metal scene,
SLOUGH FEG was originally formed in 1990 in Central Pennsylvania under the name THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG.
Later that year, the band relocated to San Francisco, which has remained their home base ever since.
After releasing a series of demos and their debut self-titled album in 1996,
the band signed to Dragonheart Records and released 3 albums,
Including the acclaimed Sci-Fi concept album, "Traveller."

In 2005, the band shortened their name to simply SLOUGH FEG and signed to Cruz Del Sur Music.
That year’s “Atavism” brought SLOUGH FEG into international prominence,
with the metal scene hailing the innate brand of storytelling and the band’s penchant
for NWOBHM-like dynamics.

Metal Blade released SLOUGH FEG’s album, “Digital Resistance” in February 2014.
The band returned to Cruz Del Sur Music and released their 10th studio album, "New Organon" in 2019.

Older Sun
-from San Francisco, CA
-Raised By Wolves is the new single by San Francisco heavy rock quintet Older Sun, taken from the band's forthcoming album DAWN OF DARKNESS. A feral wolf howl from lead vocalist Kelsey Guntharp introduces a rhythmic strut that shines like British Steel and pulses with the sting of Animal Magnetism. The chorus conjures the spirit of Lucifer's towering vocal-driven tracks, and tells the tale of a wild child raised under the moonlight with her pack. This first offering from Older Sun's new album will leave you howling for more.

-from San Francisco, CA
-San Francisco vets Disastroid have been serving up sludgy, noisy rock for more than a decade now, refining a sound that weaves angular guitar lines together with odd time signatures and hazy walls of fuzz.  Blending the vibes of 90s grunge and noise rock with modern psych, stoner, and post-metal, Disastroid delivers delivers the riffs while also embracing a lot of dynamic range and some very unpredictable song structures.

Their latest, “Mortal Fools” is their heaviest and most raw-sounding album to date. Produced by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses, The Fucking Champs), it’s sonically focused on what Disastroid does best, laying singer/guitarist Enver Koneya’s deep vocals and jagged riffs on top of a pummeling, bass-forward rhythm section. At the same time, it’s loose enough that it takes some unpredictable twists and turns, conveying the band's rough edges and sense of humor.
