OCEANS ATE ALASKA

OCEANS ATE ALASKA

Uniting boundaries between multiple genres in modern metal, Oceans Ate Alaska—Chris Turner [Drums], James Kennedy [Guitar], Mike Stanton [Bass], Adam Zytkiewicz [Guitar], and Jake Noakes [Vocals]—made waves during 2015 with their full-length debut Lost Isles. Fusing unpredictable polyrhythms and a sporadic partnering of melodic and dissonant passages, Rock Sound and Revolver both pegged Oceans Ate Alaska as a “Band to Watch,” while they landed on Alternative Press’s “100 Bands You Need To Know” list and covered HM Magazine. The Birmingham, UK, technical metal quintet’s second full-length album, Hikari, translates to “Light” in English and represents their current mindset, illuminating major strides in the group’s sonic vocabulary. Following a lyrical and musical theme rooted in Samurai mythology, the 11-track album blends traditional Japanese instruments with Oceans Ate Alaska’s dynamic flare. Ultimately, Hikari means both a new “light” for Oceans Ate Alaska and heavy music at large.

TANZEN

TANZEN

TanZen is a progressive/altmetal band from Chicago, IL. Their latest release Shizoku is a a peak into a new direction for the band on the first two songs ‘Zombie’s Dust’ and ‘What Are the Rules?’ as they blend ambient guitars, low tuning, upbeat grooves, and melodic vocals.

“The music instantly reminds one of acts like Monuments and Tesseract, without ever becoming just another clone version of the former. Its quite evident that TanZen are aiming to create their own niche sonic identity.” – ItDjentsTV

In addition to their own individual success, they have jumped on any and every show to help get the EP into the hands of anyone that would listen. Having recently supported Erra, Fit For an Autopsy, Veil of Maya, The Summer Slaughter Tour and venturing out of genre to open for Twenty One Pilots and Wale at the UIC pavilion, TanZen plans on shattering genre boundaries and blending in wherever people are willing to listen.

TanZen dares to ask the listener ‘What Are the Rules?’ while the band throws the rules out the window and lets the music do the talking.

EIGHTY SIX HAPPINESS

EIGHTY SIX HAPPINESS

In April of 2013, drummer Andy Modaff and guitarist/vocalist Joey Vana found common ground in some early jams resulting in their first collaborative effort, Dear God. From there music began to flow; music that was new, exciting, and motivating as artists. In March of 2014, close friend Erick Perez joined as bassist and threw his own influences into the melting pot that defines Eighty Six Happiness. The musicians that make up the power trio aspire to progress in their crafts and truly reach their own personal potentials, and hopefully create some great music in the process.
