Gemini Syndrome
Gemini Syndrome
Bursting on the scene, comes Gemini Syndrome from Los Angeles. And by bursting that is no understatement. Although only officially a band since January 2010, they are poised to become the next big thing happening in music. Their spectacular live show, brilliant musicianship accompanied by Aaron Nordstrom's melodic voice that still retains that metal edge, have raised the bar in the Los Angeles rock scene.

Rich Juzwick (Guitar) - Gemini Syndrome was borne out of Rich's great riffs with an ear for arrangements and the development of the music.

Aaron Nordstrom (Vox) - His melodic harmonies prefacing clear legible growls are fantastic, and his tone, timing, and lyrics are what make him a truly talented vocalist.

Brian Steele Medina (Drums) - Incredible backbone and clean beats, that aren't over bearing. A very visual drummer with great stage presence.

Mike Salerno (Guitar) - Brilliant guitar player whose rhythms set the tone for the harmonic flow of the music, and backing vocals that make the live show sonically full.

Alessandro "A.P." Paveri (Bass) - Talented italian born bass player that lends not only exceptional bass lines to the rhythm, but his unique bass style is also vitally important to the bands sound.

Gemini Syndrome is one of those perfect storms that come along in music every now and then, to create a package that works wonders. By no means is this is "local" band trying to make it in the scene. Produced by Mikey Doling (Snot/Soulfly/InVitro), even their live show lends credence to the fact that this is a polished product, ready to conquer. Their songs are hook after hook and are radio friendly tunes that connect with listeners, regardless of what genre they follow. That is the key; this is not a metal band or pop band or any one thing. They incorporate many influences to develop their own sound that crosses over musical genres. As well produced as they are, their live performance is every bit of what is on their recordings and so much more.

Deadset Society
It's not often a platinum selling band with a #1 song in the US announces they're going on hiatus, but that was the case when My Darkest Days singer Matt Walst was given the opportunity to front Canadian hard rock legends, Three Days Grace.

"Deadset Society (originally named Never Say Die) started in the front passenger seat of the My Darkest Days BandWagon... we had a relentless tour schedule," says Reid Henry (Lead Vocals/Guitar). "During overnight drives I'd squeeze through a small window to the front of the bus and stay up writing, singing, and occasionally wedging my laptop on the dashboard to record."

Over the next year, what eventually became Deadset Society remained a studio project of Reid and My Darkest Days bandmate, Brendan McMillan (Bass).

In early 2016, Reid's demos caught the interest of Producer/Engineer (Evans Blue, Parabelle, Scarlet White) and drummer (Age Of Days), Mike Langford. The band began recording an EP that grew into an album. With the addition of Mike's long time tourmate, Dane Hartsell (guitar/vocals), what started as a dream for Reid, Deadset Society has quickly become a reality.

With their debut album [Destroy + Rebuild] released early 2017 (as Never Say Die), their single ‘Like A Nightmare’ peaking at #3 on SiriusXM Octane’s Big ‘Uns Countdown, closing in on 1,000,000 streams on Spotify, and approaching 100 shows since hitting the road January 2017, it's apparent Deadset Society has positioned themselves to continue where My Darkest Days left off.
Spoken
Spoken
Starting in 1996, Spoken quickly became a mainstay in their local music scene due to a relentless work ethic and performance schedule. Shortly after forming, Spoken was signed to their first record deal with Metro 1 Music, on which they released three albums and a greatest hits compilation. With the release of their first album, On Your Feet (1997), and continuing through their second record, …What Remains (1999), the Spoken sound was a combination of rap meets metal and a bit of melodic rock. The third full-length release, Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell (2000) contained a heavier, more melodic approach to song writing, with songs like "Forevermore" and "This Path" generating repeated rotations on various modern rock radio and video programs across the country.

Spoken signed to Tooth & Nail Records to release their next album, titled A Moment of Imperfect Clarity. This, and their subsequent albums on Tooth and Nail, highlighted an evolving sound in which first melody and then a post-hardcore sound were introduced and stressed. The band shot music videos for "Promise" and "Falling Further"

In 2005, Spoken released Last Chance to Breathe. The style changed even more, becoming more based on screams than heavy guitar work. A music video was shot for "Bitter Taste", a single from the album, featuring Cory Brandon Putman of Norma Jean.

On September 25, 2007, Spoken released the album, Spoken. The sound was heavier and more mature, with both heavy vocals and heavy guitar work. Matt Baird, the lead vocalist for Spoken, said this about their sound: "Our new record has a lot of diversity. There are songs that are heavier than anything we've done before, and there is a song that is mostly piano. The songs are really all over the place as far as a similar style or genre, but it works. I think the record is extremely cohesive. I can't wait for people to hear it."

Spoken has made multiple trips across the United States as well Japan, Germany and Sweden. Averaging over 100 shows a year, they regularly see attendance into the hundreds, filling venues to capacity throughout the U.S.

In late 2008, Spoken disappeared from the Tooth & Nail roster. Several months later the band announced that they had left the label and Alien Patrol was to release a digital re-release of Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell, an album that had an extremely limited release early in their career.

Spoken has been working on a new record since 2009 with producer Jasen Rauch. They have revealed that the record is finished and will be released on February 12, 2013 through E1 Music and will be called, "Illusion". The band will support the album with a spring tour alongside Volbeat and Danko Jones. The first single, "Through It All", was released on December 18, 2012.

The band announced via their Facebook page on November 28, 2014 that they would release a new album in 2015. A later interview with singer Matt Baird revealed the band will be recording at least one song in January as a promo track and then the remainder of the album will be recorded in May 2015. Recording is done and is in the process of being mixed and mastered.

On July 15, 2015 the band signed a new contract with Artery Recordings.
