Star Killer
Star Killer
“You have to understand. Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so injured. So hopelessly dependant on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

There is no more time for fairy tales. No more time to kill. The Big Apple is rotting along with the American Dream. Everyone is programmed to believe in the next fraudulent demigod, famous for no reason, saviour of nothingness. The time has come for a real change.

Star Killer have arrived, and not a moment too late. Stepping through the void in 2011. They entered the NYC music scene and quickly became fan favorites. All it takes is seeing the live show once and you immediately understand why. Star Killer have taken their heavy alternative rock meets industrial sound, and crossed it with a nihilistic “fuck the world before the world fucks you” sensibility.

Frontman Jasin Cadic has the charisma and allure only found in Rock Stars, Politicians, and Cult Leaders. Opinionated and verbose he calls it how he sees it. The band skillfully creates a thematic sonic landscape for his tales of life, humanity, and pre apocalyptic turmoil. And no one is safe.

Star Killer has the cross hairs fixed on the fraudulent. The music is a knife to the throat of the wicked. They sing the songs of the injured. With the hope that they will be inspired to unplug from the system. Peeling back the skin exposes what is really lying beneath. There is no more time for lies. Do not stand for false imitations and scream in the face of the non believers. There is no more relying on tomorrow. When tomorrow may never come.

In between distractions, ask yourself a question. As the sky is falling, where will you be standing?

You are a Witness….
Panzie
Panzie
At first when you see them or hear the name Panzie, you’re not quite sure what to expect ... but expect the unexpected.This band's got it. They understand what it takes to put out badass rock 'n roll. The beauty is that it comes naturally to them. They were born to do this.

They are not a manufactured or an overproduced record company's spit-out. Each band member is a character in their own right and could stand alone but to bring them together in one band is why it's so good.

Front man Johnny Hawaiian is the last real American rock star and Panzie brings something back to hard rock that has been missing. Their songs are raw, energetic and aggressive, yet there's something fine and sophisticated about their delivery.They have the "it" factor. They are everything you want in a rock 'n roll band.

Panzie is the whole package. They have well-written songs that you can listen to over and over again. You just don't get tired of listening. They look good, they sound good and they deliver a live show to match. Their full-length album, entitled 'Love & Blood,' is destined to become a classic. This album rocks from beginning to end. Every track is memorable and stands on its own; it's a hard rock album that takes you on a musical journey.

'Love & Blood' is what you get when you take every great band and song you love and combine them. That is Panzie. They play music you want to hear and when you're done, you want more. Its unpretentious, meat-and-potatoes, dirty rock 'n roll. Front man Johnny Hawaiian and guitar players DC Gonzalez and Jonnie Rockit started the band in 2009 in NYC. All veterans of the NY rock scene, they were anxious to start a new band. After a few rehearsals at DC's place, they realized that there was an undeniable chemistry between them and were pleased with the sound that was forming.

Before they had a full set, they were booking shows. Panzie enjoys playing live and that was evident right from the start. As soon as they had enough tunes, they were anxious to let people hear what they were brewing. In 2009, the NYC music scene was starting to come alive again and there were bands and venues popping up all over the place. Hawaiian, DC and Rockit could not be happier -- this was where they grew up and the playground they needed to showcase themselves.

They later joined forces with drummer John "Servo" DeSalvo and bass player Dave Sussman. Servo and Dave were longtime friends who had played in other bands together and instantly all of their personalities and attitudes meshed and a new and better Panzie emerged. Panzie quickly became a vital part of the NYC music scene.

And that's the thing with these guys; they are the real deal, they support their scene and love what they do. There is no way that this band will not rise to the top. 'Love & Blood' is worthy of sitting in your record collection next to your other favorites. If you have not seen them live, give yourself a treat and check them out. You will not be disappointed. Strap in and enjoy the ride!

Named after the North Vietnamese Resolution passed in 1959 which changed their strategy from “Political Struggle” to “Armed Struggle”, Resolution15 released their self-titled debut in 2007 and quickly be...came a fixture in the New York metal scene.

The EP Satyagraha was then released in April 2010 with Corey Unger (guitarist of the seminal New England metalcore band Blood Has Been Shed) as producer.

In 2012, Resolution15 launched and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new album, entitled “Svaha”. Recording took place at Spin Studios and Nova Studios, with Ryan Kelly and Stacy O’Dell as producers. “Svaha” was officially released on January 15, 2013.

Resolution15 has been featured in Kerrang, Metal Edge, Metal Injection, and other ‘zines, but their favorite quote comes from Metal Edge: "...violins have been attached to folk metal and other oblong versions of what you might consider to be metal, but what was being belted out
onstage was nowhere near folk, chamber music or anything along those lines. This [Resolution15] is thrash. This is loud. This is a kick in the f*****g face."

However, there is no reason to blindly accept someone else's perceptions, no matter how grateful the band is to have that quote. Resolution15 feels that you should come see with your own eyes, hear with your own ears. Just come to a show and make up your own fucking mind. Thank you and have a nice day.

Dead Rocking Horse
Dead Rocking Horse
Dead Rocking Horse is a relatively new member of the New York City hard rock community.

Songwriting/rocking-the-F-out team Marron Chaplin and David Alva met in January 2011 at a mutual friend's concert. During the weeks prior to their meeting, they had each suffered both a personal heartbreak and the death of an immediate family member, hence they were down on life and drinking a LOT. The night
they met, David made a rude comment to Marron, she slapped him, and the world's greatest friendship was born!
The pair's musical relationship evolved gradually. Although both involved in other projects (David in notable NYC band Stoned Fire, and Marron as a solo singer-songwriter on the Lower East Side circuit), they decided to drag each other out of their depressive funk, have some fun and vent some energy by forming Violent Age, a tribute to the Misfits. It was totally frigging rad, and yes, you are sorry you missed it.
While successfully gigging all over New York as a punk quartet, David intuited that Marron was not finding musical fulfillment performing her solo acoustic material. He began helping her take her original songs to the next level by lending his formidable bass skills and precise technical ear. For months, the pair retired to Marron's couch in New Jersey almost every night, working tirelessly to transform a bare-bones handful of acoustic songs into something much bigger. Playing music together helped them begin to heal from their individual devastating losses, resulting in a partnership that has yielded a collection of truly human music.
But being absolute rock'n'roll fans til death, they had zero intention of playing as a sensitive acoustic duo. Screw that. David found talented young drummer Steve Baycura, and the trio clicked immediately. They rehearsed relentlessly, and in December of 2011, Dead Rocking Horse played their first official gig in New York City to a welcoming audience of friends, fellow musicians, and Marron's mom.
Since their debut, the band has worked without ceasing and has just finished independently recording their first EP with producer/engineer George Pesios. The DRH EP will be released at the end of November, when Dead Rocking Horse returns from a season's performance hiatus to play their biggest show yet at Mercury Lounge. You should be there.

"Don't tell me that you grew up and now you're a serial killer because when you were a little kid, you had a rocking horse and it died."
-Rev. Charles Paul Shustrick (Marron's dad), 1946-2010
