ALL HELL Online:
Madison, WI's atmospheric doom metal band, Bereft is a steadfast expression of the human condition. Founding members Zach Johnson and Alex Linden rounded out Bereft by adding Cade Gentry on bass and Jerry McDougal on drums.
Bereft weave elements of doom and black metal into exhaustive, dynamic songs. Lyrically, they draw from their views on religion, politics and social injustice. It is in this spirit that they create their own style of powerful metal, unbound to any genre and fully conscious of the impression.
Bereft is: Zach Johnson (guitar/vocals), Alex Linden (guitar/vocals), Cade Gentry (bass), Michael Kadner (drums (studio)), Jerry McDougal (drums (live))

North Carolina's Funeral Chic is the latest addition to the Prosthetic Records family. The 5 piece, blackened crust punks hailing from Charlotte will begin recording their Prosthetic debut towards the end of 2017. The band released last year's critically acclaimed "Hatred Swarm" LP, which Blow The Scene described as "monstrous blackened crust riffage blasting into pummeling drum rhythms, executed with hell-fire precision."
Funeral Chic have toured with Joy, Of Feather & Bone, Young And In The Way and opened for Nails, Power Trip, Oathbreaker, Full Of Hell, Homewrecker, Harms Way, Twitching Tongues and many more throughout their home state.
"Funeral Chic are among a spring of blackened punk bands, splintering and reshaping black metal's more caustic sounds into the tangible furor of hardcore and crust punk." - CVLT Nation

JUNIUS is on the road in support of their latest release Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light, which is out now. Fans can order their copy of Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light here. The album marks the completion of their conceptual trilogy which began in 2009 with their evoking LP The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist, depicted by Rolling Stone as, "a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and The Smiths" followed by 2011's Reports From The Thresholds of Death. The critically acclaimed 2014 EP, Days of the Fallen Sun, was lauded by Pitchfork as their "strongest and most sensuous work to date".
Whilst not working on the new material, JUNIUS have spent the past three years touring across North America and Europe with acts including Solstafir, Caspian, Long Distance Calling and Wolves Like Us - just to name a few, as well as making a featured performance at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in 2015.

St. Petersburg, FL's own WELTESSER will be performing for their local fans at The Crowbar in Ybor City, FL on October 27. They are performing in support of their new album, Crestfallen, out now (order here). Watch their video for "Terminal" here - https://youtu.be/T_GoLjA5KUk
Weltesser is the ringing in your head after a punch. They're fueled by sour diesel and misery-- a trio guided by feedback since 2014. Ian Hronek (Rotting Palms, Landbridge) Nate Peterson (Rotting Palms, Sky Burial) and Mike Amador (Landbridge) met in Saint Petersburg, FL over Sabbath worship and Monolord.
Through unnerving riffs and thick bass tone, they forge a swollen atmosphere only to destroy it, and fittingly so, as Weltesseris German for world-eater. A slow roast that simmers on heavy drums and deep vocals, Crestfallen is seamless and self-aware. Their sound is inspired by Dystopia, His Hero is Gone, and Laudanum, lending a humble maturity beyond three years. Lacking nothing, these swamp natives plan on touring all throughout 2017. They'll leave you lightheaded, but at least the smoke in their wake will come from a well-deserved bowl you ripped.
Weltesser is: Ian Hronek, Nate Peterson & Mike Amador
HOME STATE SHOW:
10/27 - Ybor City, FL @ The Crowbar
Formed in 2010, Without Waves set out to write music with an open-ended approach to songwriting. This attitude has helped Without Waves create a wildly varied sound with a foundation in heavy metal. After seven years, Without Waves is currently supporting its Prosthetic Records debut, Lunar.
Their diverse sound has given Without Waves a chance to share the stage with an equally diverse selection of bands: The Black Dahlia Murder, Scale the Summit, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Vattnet Viskar and Leprous just to name a few. Though a relatively new band, the members themselves had been playing together in one form or another for over a decade prior to Without Waves. Their unique bond contributes to the diversity of the songs and their performance. Their live show is energetic, tight and, at times, free flowing, which only comes when players are 100% confident and respectful of each other.
Without Waves is: Anthony Cwan - Vocals/Guitars, Zac Lombardi - Guitars, John Picillo - Bass, Garry Naples - Drums
9/14 - Colorado Springs, CO @ Flux 2.0 at KCH
9/15 - Alamosa, CO @ San Luis Valley Brewing Company
9/16 - Des Moines, IA @ Vaudeville Mews (ALL AGES)
9/17 - Omaha, NE @ Sozo Coffeehouse
9/18 - Kansas City, MO @ Riot Room
10/15 - Berwyn, IL @ The Wire
WITHOUT WAVES Online:
Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, an early incarnation of the group was more of a hardcore/punk band but as the band's influence of Celtic Frost, Darkthrone and Disfear started showing up more in their music, they chose to rebrand themselves as Wormwitch. In October of 2015, they released their first EP, The Long Defeat. In early 2016, No Clean Signing premiered a new track, Coffin Birth, describing it as a "high-octane rush of deep, grinding riffs, piston-driven drumming, and thundering bass, with a heavy as-hell production." It was then that they caught the attention of Prosthetic Records and soon a worldwide deal was struck. A few short months later, they entered Rain City Recorders with producer Curtis Buckoll (Archspire) to begin work on their debut album, Strike Mortal Soil.
Integrating equal parts black metal savagery and rock n' roll defiance, Strike Mortal Soil, stands like a monolith commemorating those that came before while dispersing a beacon of hope to the future. Fans cam order their copy here: http://smarturl.it/strikemortalsoil

Of Adoration, the band's debut album will be released via Prosthetic Records on Oct 6, 2017 (pre-order). The opus was tracked at the start of 2017 with Jeff Edwards before being sent off to be mixed and mastered by Chris Common (Pelican, Mouth of the Architect, Minus the Bear). The record features 8 tracks that peaks and valleys its way through over 40 minutes of music.

Formed in 2010, ZAIUS explores a lighter, more melodic side of the members' musical tastes without abandoning the metal tendencies that come natural to them. ZAIUS first arrive on the scene withAll Your Friends Are Dead, the band's 2011 debut EP, which showcased a fine mix of dense and morose guitar playing. 2013's Divided By Tides EP came next and pushed things further, adding in soaring melodies. The album was met with glistening reviews, with MetalSucks proclaiming, "the world needs more instru-metal bands like ZAIUS, who steer completely clear of djent while still managing to bring the groove (via Maserati), atmospherics (via Constants, If These Trees Could Talk, etc) and the heavy (via Scale the Summit). Bomb."
ZAIUS is: Jeremy Bellen - Bass; Dann Dolce - Guitar; Mike Imbordino - Drums; Ian McConnell - Guitar
