CHRCH
CHRCH
Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, CHRCH wields epic, lengthy songs, massive low end, and an occult vocal presence in a perfect blend of height and depth. CHRCH has been hard at work crafting their particular sound since late 2013. There is no image or campy gimmick to uphold, only the humble glorification of their fundamental musical elements.

This purity and honesty comes across in a striking manner on the band’s debut Unanswered Hymns (Battleground Records, 2015), a sprawling roller coaster of an album. Long form songs build and heedlessly dismantle as the band reaches sonic heights and beautiful plateaus. Severe, sometimes unrelenting, vocals contrast melodic singing; massive fuzz gives way to clean guitar parts. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Patrick Hills at Earthtone Studios in Rocklin, California, it exudes a warm, organic tone that draws the listener in with a sound influenced by traditional doom, psych rock, drone, and ambience.

CHRCH teamed up with Fister to release a split 12” via Battleground Records/Crown And Throne LTD, earlier this year. Their track, “Temples,” displays the increasing subtlety and intensity of CHRCH’s songwriting. Intricate melodies and composition build on the band’s thunderous drums, strong vocals, and gargantuan riffs.

The band’s second full length, the impending "Light Will Consume Us All," carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their debut. Building upon this unyielding foundation, "Light Will Consume Us All" continues CHRCH’s narrative, traversing life’s epic journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness.

Minimalist, indulgent, or straightforward; the music of CHRCH calls the listener to inhabit it, allowing enough room for its transmutation into anything one desires of it.
Body Void
Body Void
Body Void originally formed in the spring of 2014 as Devoid with the aim to combine the most extreme elements of hardcore punk and doom metal, bridging furious crust salvos and the crushing stillness of drone doom. In 2016 they released their debut LP, Ruins, under a new name with a renewed focus.
Boar Worship
Boar Worship
Boar Worship is a two-piece band that currently operates in Denver, CO. Bolstered by heavily amplified guitar progressions (Nick Angelo) and a destructively forceful rhythm section (D. Brigman), the duo creates a dissonant hybrid of many metal-influenced genres while maintaining a sincerely hardbitten approach to their craft.

Rooted in DIY ethos, the band originally formed in 2009 while members were living in Albuquerque, NM. Year one spawned “The Decline and Fall of the Christian Empire”, a scornful five song EP - documenting a brief yet ferocious period of the band’s existence as a four-piece. The 2009 EP was self-recorded/released and available free of charge at shows. After some time and various line-up incarnations, Mike Day recorded the “Pro Death” EP at Knife City Studios in Albuquerque. Shortly after that release, Boar Worship relocated to Oakland, CA in 2012 and began performing as a collaborative effort between Nick and Joseph Angelo. They recorded a willfully obscure “self-titled” EP which was released in 2015 as a double 7” clear lathe-cut, limited to 25 copies.

The present line-up is a raw and direct display of years devoted to creating unapologetic music that nods to their past-lives and aggressively claws at the days ahead - without sympathy or desire to adopt a formula exhausted by an over-saturated/grossly-imitated scene.
Terminus
Terminus
"Hailing from Fayetteville, Arkansas, Terminus deliver an explosive experience in technical and awe inspiring Progressive Rock. From the frenzied excess of the Mars Volta to the thunderous strut of Queens Of The Stone Age, Terminus have mapped out a quest for absolute dominance. A total force to be reckoned with" - FayetteSound

Terminus was formed in the late 2000's by three high school friends (Sebastian Thomas, Scott Wood, and Andrew Jenner). The band quickly established themselves in the metal scene of their home state of Arkansas, mixing the head banging riffs of stoner/sludge metal with the powerful hooks and grooves of classic progressive-rock. The band continued to play in the area throughout high school, sharing the stage with bands such as Pallbearer, Rwake, Kylesa, Pinkish Black and Inter Arma. In 2012 Terminus entered the studio to record it's first EP with Chris Moore of East Hall. The following year the band recorded a second EP with Jason Tedford of Wolfman Studios in Little Rock, AR. The self-titled EP was released on Mutants of the Monster a label formed by members of Rwake.

In late 2015 the band entered the studio to record their debut LP with Kris Hilbert of Legitimate Business in Greensboro, NC. Following the studio work, Terminus added Sebastian's brother Julian Thomas as a second guitarist to help bring their sound to the stage. In April, 2016 'Safe Travels, See You Never' was self-released by the band. Terminus showed their commitment to the road by supporting the release with tours of the Midwest, South and East coast.

Terminus plans to begin writing their follow-up to 'Safe Travels' and head back to Greensboro, NC to record in August 2017.
