Death Angel
Death Angel
Among the youngest bands ever to storm the metal genre, Death Angel has come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s, an era when one could catch Cliff Burton (Metallica) at the front of the stage at Ruthie's Inn banging his head to Death Angel's inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements

In 1986, a Death Angel demo produced by Kirk Hammett (Metallica) titled "Kill As One" sparked the interest of Enigma Records. Then, in 1987, Death Angel's debut, "The Ultra Violence," was released. Drummer Andy Galeon was just 14 years old at the time. The album was a full-frontal assault on the ears, buzzing with the group's youthful energy, and "The Ultra Violence" sold 40,000 copies in just four months. Another innovative recording, "Frolic Through the Park," followed, marking Death Angel's evolution both lyrically and musically. "Bored," another track from the band's second release, highlighted the cutting-edge band's inventive dynamics, and won a spot on MTV's "Headbanger's Ball."

Geffen Records was impressed enough with Death Angel's television premier to offer the band a deal, and Death Angel became the first band of their breed to appear on the major label's roster. At Geffen, the band released what is widely regarded as one of the most original and accomplished thrash metal albums ever recorded, "Act III." The record pushed the limits of the genre to create something truly unique, a definitive work that is essential to any metal fan's music collection. Death Angel's masterful songwriting ability was once again on display nationwide in 1990, as the videos for "Seemingly Endless Time' and 'Room With A View' saw heavy rotation on MTV.
Striker
Striker
It's about time for another Canadian high-octane band to set the world on fire. Standing on the shoulders of Canadian giants like Annihilator, Exciter, Cauldron and the best of European and American Speed Metal, STRIKER certainly are one of the finest newcomers from Canada in the last decade.

Formed in 2007 by Ian Sandercock and Dan Cleary, Striker found a consistent lineup in the Summer of 2008 and released their debut EP "Road Warrior" on Iron Kodex Records. The widely praised EP warranted a European tour invitation, which will include stops at the renowned "Keep it True" Festival in Germany and the "Pounding Metal" Festival in Madrid Spain in Spring 2010 but unfortunately due to volcanic activity the trip had to be cancelled (See the song Fuck Volcanoes for more details)

With their debut full-length "Eyes in the Night" receiving rave reviews from all over the world , Striker has had the privilege of sharing the stage with great bands such as Sacrifice, 3 Inches of Blood, Raven and Sodom, and also have completed a Canadian tour in 2010 and a European tour in early 2011, including a stop at the Metal Assault festival. Now Striker is fully loaded and ready to shred!

Sectas
SectaS (cult, sect, domination) is a band like no other. This trios brand of high energy metal featuring Christian Lee (lead vocals/lead guitar) David "Runaway" SectaS (bass) and Brian Regalado (drums/back-up vocals) will invade your very soul. Reminiscent of early Megadeth meets Rush, SectaS' music is hard driving, yet melodic with a positive message behind every lyric. Christian's guitar licks rival all of the "guitar God's" the industry has fed music lovers from day one. Runaways bass tactics tantalize the beast within to scream his name like the teenage groupie of yesteryear, and Brian's fierce double-kick abilities will reach into your chest and force your heart rhythm to match his beats. SectaS' musical influences span from Alice in Chains to Led Zeppelin and beyond, while maintaining a truly unique sound.

Sectas are the winners of the Producer's Choice Hard Rock Band of the Year 2015 L.A. Music Awards(http://www.prlog.org/12495980-metal-band-sectas-sizzles-on-sunset-blvd-at-the-la-music-awards.html). Released on their album "Hopes of a New Time", SectaS' hit single "Hear Me Loud" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIoJ_FEFJys) is an anthem to announce their presence with profound authority. SectaS has opened for amazing national acts such as Queensrÿche, Y&T, Papa Roach, and many others. SectaS has so many stellar accomplishments they could brag about insistently, yet they choose humility and true brotherhood to egotistical rants which is quite rare in music. These qualities make SectaS' fans loyal for LIFE, not just a passing fancy to anyone that claims SectaS fandom. Christian Lee is endorsed with ESP guitars, Tsunami Cables, Erafuzz Pedals and Miktek Microphones (http://www.espguitars.com/artists), David “Runaway” Sectas is endorsed with Spector Bass, Krank amps and Tsunami Cables (http://www.spectorbass.com/complete-artist-list.html)

Brian Regalado is endorsed by Miktek Microphones, and Sectas is sponsored by Coldcock Whiskey (http://www.coldcockwhiskey.com/#crews/artist/284). Sectas has been featured in ION Indie Magazine worldwide (https://www.joomag.com/magazine/ion-indie-magazine-march-2015-volume-10/0373184001422483683

Pages 182-189), The Phoenix New Times has called Christian Lee one of the top 15 guitarists in all of Arizona (http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2014/11/top_best_15_guitarists_phoenix_metal_scene.php) as well as one if the top 10 vocalists (http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2014/04/top_10_valley_metal_vocalists.php?page=5).
