Zeke
Zeke
Punk/Metal from Seattle WA

ZEKE sound like the DWARVES if they snorted a tub of meth every day - LA WEEKLY chainsaw punk rock played with a MC5 / MOTORHEAD attitude - VILLAGE VOICE I can say without hyperbole that this big-guitar engine-block rock is a million times better than whatever it is you're currently listening to. - GUITAR WORLD Ride With Zeke has quickly become the mantra for music fans who have accepted the invitation brought by on Heckler Magazine when they said, Welcome the new monsters of rock. And believe me, West Coast punk / thrashers ZEKE are monsters. Ever since their very first gig at the Rock City in Seattle in 1993, people have had no choice but to pay attention. Their records will assault you, and their live show will batter you.
Antiseen
Antiseen
rock ' n ' roll - punk rock from Charlotte NC

Long before it was fashionable, somewhere in the red clay rolling hills of rural North Carolina where time stands still and mass media culture merely flys over, a young Jeff Clayton was stewing up a mash of crazed ideas inspired by late night horror flicks, Saturday morning wrestling and the scratchy old records of Alice Cooper and Black Oak Arkansas.
It was a potent and hazardous mix that, when given the blasting cap of punk rock, ignited one of the most infamous and iconic bands in rock & roll; ANTiSEEN.

Now, over thirty years later, Clayton still leads the charge - a bloodstained barnstorm of southern fried punk rock fury. Times and taste may change, but ANTiSEEN does not; diesle-fume piss and vinegar - and damn all the rest. What was once topical has long since become dated... But not ANTiSEEN.

The toxic DNA bleeds thru the muddy roots. The genre defying influence and heritage no longer can be denied. One needs not look very far to recognize it.
The spirit is eternal, the reality exceeds the myth...

The legends continues...
Against The Grain
Against The Grain
Gear-shifting Rock n roll from
Detroit MI

ATG ( Against the Grain) is a 4 piece band out of The Motor City.. They are a Speed Rock band blazing through the US with their brand of Gear-shifting Balls to the Wall music that incorporates all things heavy from Punk, Rock n roll, Doom and thrash culminated together for one huge sound of a rock n roll musical speed-ball. Putting rock music at the forefront, and leaving behind any pretentious gimmick to the side ATG plans on being being heard.

Currently Birmingham's longest-running punk band. We've played all over the Southeast, hitting Alabama (obviously), Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana at least once. Florida, your day will come...eventually. We've played bars, all-ages clubs, parties, and even a mental institution. Over the years, we've been lucky enough to play with some amazing touring bands (Agnostic Front, UK Subs, MDC, Murphy's Law, The Vibrators, Zero Boys, Fear, Fishbone, Koffin Kats, etc.) as well as countless regional and local bands. For a complete list of every show we've ever played, check the "Notes" section on this site and the Facebook page. We've also managed to put out four full-length CD's, a 7", several CD EP's, and have been on more than a few compilations.

While there may be a bit of metal and the like thrown in, we have been and always will be a punk band. You do this because you can't imagine doing anything else, and the day that stops, so will we. Slowly putting together songs for an eventual 12", but don't hold your breath, as we take our time writing songs. So there, that's it. If you want to know anything else, you'll just have to ask...
