Oathbreaker
Eros|Anteros" is the breathtaking follow up to Oathbreaker's critically acclaimed "Maelstrom" album (Deathwish 2011). Where "Maelstrom" acted as individual fragments of aural shrapnel, "Eros|Anteros" is a monstrous shockwave of sound. It is Oathbreaker's story of love and the anti-love (life and death), and the growth they have experienced through these trials.

In opener "Beeltenis" (Dutch for "Portrait") layers of melodious guitar cry out to one another through the blackness. Acting as a ghostlike warning before Oathbreaker whips calm to chaos. "No Rest for the Weary" then abruptly crashes forward with breakneck speed and from there the floodgates of "Eros|Anteros" are open. As vocalist Caro Tanghe lets out the hair raising screams of "I'll never know what it means - this deadly calm inside", it's clear that this album is more potent and personal than most heavy music; this is a collective soul searching for the band. This is most apparent in brother and sister songs "As I Look Into the Abyss" and "The Abyss Looks Into Me". A stunning pairing that shows Oathbreaker racing through razor sharp metallic riffing before erupting into a vicious emotional explosion. This quarrel continues throughout the "Eros|Anteros", finally coming to a head in the haunting closer "Clair Obscur". A brilliant eleven minute epic that carefully balances shoe-gaze leanings with their wounded post-metal heart.
King Woman
Bay Area's King Woman is comprised of Kristina Esfandiari, Colin Gallagher, Joey Raygoza, and Peter Arensdorf.

Kristina Esfandiari originally formed King Woman back in 2009 as a solo project which later turned into a full band. Their debut EP "Doubt" touches on some heavy topics and allows Esfandiari's lyrical ingenuity to really shine; with nods to issues like religious abuse, the four resulting tracks are cathartic, brooding, and hypnotic. The record was recorded with Patrick Hills (Tera Melos, 7 Seconds, So Stressed) at Earth Tone in Sacramento, CA in 2015. The band wears their musical influence on their sleeve: "We love bands like Black Sabbath, OM, Neurosis and Jesu", said Kristina, and with her lush and dramatic vocals not unlike Mazzy Star, King Woman has created a sound all their own.

Since the release of "Doubt" King Woman have played shows with bands such as: Ceremony, Planning For Burial, A Place to Bury Strangers, Weekend, and True Widow, leaving audiences speechless and ravenous for more.

Their first full length album "Created in the Image of Suffering", recorded at Jack Shirley's Atomic Garden, is set to come out in 2016 as one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
Jaye Jayle
Jaye Jayle was conceived by singer/songwriter Evan Patterson (also of the band Young Widows) in late 2013. Last year, Jaye Jayle released four limited edition single 7 inches on four different record labels of 8 songs from a recording made prior to ever performing in a live setting. A new album is on the horizon. Cheers.
