Jucifer
Jucifer
Jucifer, founded in Georgia in 1993, are pioneers of the sludge metal two piece. They are notorious for their use of massive amplification, and for their entirely nomadic lifestyle since moving into their tour vehicle a decade ago.

Early on, Jucifer shared stages with many underground legends, including Lubricated Goat, Bloodloss (Mark Arm/Mudhoney), and Eyehategod. Years based in Athens, Georgia from 1991 until 2001 were pivotal both for Jucifer and the Southern scene itself, which has evolved to strongly reflect bands such as Jucifer and contemporaries Harvey Milk.

In 1994 the band saw its first release, a cassette of four track recordings that went unnoticed by all but a handful of fans. During this time they also recorded at a friend's home studio, a session which has never seen the light other than the two songs which made Jucifer's first 7".

Jucifer's second foray into the studio produced the iconoclastic Calling All Cars On The Vegas Strip. The album, released on Athens indie label Crack Rock Records, charted well on college radio with little promotion and was widely acclaimed by critics as groundbreaking. Attention from this drew scouts from various major labels--- most notably Capricorn Records, then home of 311, as they would ultimately sign Jucifer.

Like many since, but few before, Jucifer's early recordings combined elements of metal and punk juxtaposed with oppositional sounds and instruments drawn from pop, folk, classical, and hip hop music. Over the years the name Jucifer has become synonymous with experimentation and breadth of concept.

Jucifer also means a literal "wall of sound"--- morphing in shape from stage to stage but ever looming. Interviews have often found the band regaling with stories of decibel overload and its effect on fans, which can easily be envisioned as powerful in context of the sixty plus speakers Gazelle Amber Valentine regularly runs her guitar through.

Jucifer has been constantly on tour for ten years and was on tour much of the ten before that. They've played and toured with hundreds of bands including Melvins, Melt-Banana, Mike Watt, High On Fire, Mastodon, Torche, Today Is The Day, Cutthroats 9, Keelhaul, Big Business, TSOL, Against Me!, Hawkwind, Genghis Tron, Thrones, Vic Chesnutt, Acid King, Skeletonwitch and Valient Thorr.

Hyborian
Hyborian
An age of violence and magic, a world of uncertainty, a soundtrack to a time forgotten by man.
(the) Medicine Theory
(the) Medicine Theory
(the) medicine theory was formed in 2007 to "write odd, dark, and really quiet songs about bunnies, expressionism and murder." This has held true for the last 6 years, except for the quiet part. Often compared to Big Black or Shellac, this two piece of Jeff Irvine (guitars, samples, noises) and Tyson Schroeder (drums, vocals, samples) create songs and soundscapes pulled from a wide array of influences, such as The Swans, The Tiger Lillies, Pailhead, Sixteen Horsepower, and children's lullaby's. This scope of "what do you want to do today?" has allowed the band to create freely and at random. From the lo-fi/noise/scyzophrenic attack of 2008's "...with dead certainty, even in the midst of chaos" to their most recent release "What The fuck you lookin at?" Which features constructed loops, samples, and a quiet tension of story telling.

(the) medicine theory is currently recording their next release "VERSIFICATOR" and beginning writing sessions for a fourth and equally divergent release.
