Hellmouth is here to bring back a time when music actually meant something. They assert that music has lost all integrity and become soft. They are here to bring back the fear, anger, and honesty that they feel once existed. They currently have three albums, “Destroy Everything. Worship Nothing”, “The Demo 08” and "Gravestone Skylines". They were released in limited quantities and once sold out will likely not be repressed, according to the band.
Golden Torso is a band born out of other bands, known for being topless and getting a crowd moving. They describe themselves as three chubby dudes and one little man. They rock harder than most bands around, even if one of the guys is on the smaller side.
Old Gods is the brainchild of Jeff Tuttle, former guitar player for Dillinger Escape Plan. He joined forces with former Heads Will Roll teammate, Derek Swanson, and friends Randall K. and Tony W. to create this new entity and some new music. They just released their first record on Forge Again Records, appropriately titled "Old Gods" and it can be found on their bandcamp.
