    Not many established bands are willing to take the risk of changing their name and starting back from the beginning.  But that’s exactly what The Bloodline did.  Formerly known as Dirge Within, the band thought it was better to start from scratch. “We started writing the music and we felt that it wasn’t the band,” The Bloodline vocalist Travis Neal

  • THE DEFILED - The Name Says It All

    For dreamers, the grey skies and rich history of London, England, brings to life the food of fairytales: Medieval castles, busty maidens, and victorious knights galore.

  • FALLEN ANGELS - World In Decay

    Metal has spun-off and evolved into numerous subgenres throughout its history.

  • DELTA DEEP Live! - The Hotel Cafe, Hollywood, CA

    Got blues?  Want some?  I mean real blues.  Sweltering hot, sorrow-drenched, deep southern blues.  While Los Angeles may have deep musical roots and a rich history when it comes to rock n’ roll, it’s never been known as the mecca of blues—enter Delta Deep.  Perhaps best known as guitarist Phil Collen’s (Def Leppard, MANRAZE) new project, he is by no
