Combichrist
Combichrist
Five acclaimed albums; hundreds of headlining shows, four months touring Europe supporting Rammstein (playing to hundreds of thousands of people)… Combichrist is fired up and ready for action! Many acts reach a certain level of success and rest on their reputations, Combichrist's Andy LaPlegua returned to the studio with a fist full of inspiration and a whole lot of nothing to prove. With the new album, Making Monsters, LaPlegua emerges a more vital beast, stripped of all pretentions. The new album is raw, visceral, and seething with uncompromising urgency. In pushing forward, Combichrist's playfully sinister facade is torn away. What is exposed underneath is an uncompromising expression of lust, anger, pain, and hate personified.

Making Monsters is laden with hook heavy choruses, speaker crushing beats, and dark, aggressive vocals. The first single "Never Surrender" is bound to rule the dance floors along with other floor stompers "They" and "Throat Full of Glass". The song "Follow the Trail of Blood" (featuring Brendan Schiepatti of Bleeding Through) is an anthem of aggression, and will immediately become a crowd favorite. The brooding "Reclamation" and "Through These Eyes of Pain" show us another side of Combichrist, that of the man inside the monster. With Making Monsters, Combichrist evolves beyond the demon it was, into an unrelenting, malevolent force in music.
William Control
William Control
William Roy Francis was born January 8, 1982 in Seattle,Washington. In wiL's younger years he took an interest in drugs and alcohol but after leading police on a high speed car chase (and subsequently spending time in jail), wiL decided it was time to turn his life around. He started playing guitar again as a form of therapy and rediscovered music. He mainly provides vocals for post-hardcore band Aiden but can also play guitar, bass, and piano. wiL has said that William Control is basically the struggles he faces everyday and the battle going on inside of him to use drugs and drink. William Control is classified as Electro/New Wave/Rock. His music tends to be very dark and focused on controversial themes. Aiden bass player Nick Wiggins also plays for William Control.

New Year's Day
September
September
September is an industrial metal presence based out of Iowa Falls, Iowa that is comprised of five individuals with one single purpose: to use their passion for music to create something new and different and share it with anyone within earshot. The result is something technically proficient, yet directly to the point. Many of their songs consistently scream out a message not of despair, but of standing up for yourself and refusing to simply allow yourself to be victimized.

These five musicians (Lucas Brighton, Thomas J Brighton, Kyle Christensen, Rick Roll, and Ashley Schonberg) are constantly challenging each other, and themselves, in effort to improve their craft. With their incredible performance energy and their undeniable presence, it truly is simply a matter of time before more and more people realize that September has arrived.

September has shared the stage with such national acts as Cold, Mushroomhead, Ventana, (HED) PE, Nonpoint, American Head Charge, Spineshank, Hanzel und Gretyl, Surrender the Fall, Motograter, Seven Day Sonnet, and Primer 55, and that resume is sure to grow in the coming months ahead.
