According to the pages of the various metal media, the labels "LEGENDARY," "INNOVATIVE," "TRUE ORIGINALS," as well as "LUNATICS!" have been rightfully pinned upon RAVEN over the years. In a music scene filled by clones nurtured with a cookie-cutter mentality, the unique personality, power and humor of the three band members has always shone through. The crazed vocals & bass playing of John Gallagher, the full frontal guitar assault of brother, Mark Gallagher, and the punishing polyrhythmic pounding of drummer, Joe Hasselvander, all combine to form a sonic battering ram unique in rock!

From the well documented early days as NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) frontrunners, RAVEN's albums ROCK UNTIL YOU DROP, WIPED OUT and ALL FOR ONE virtually invented both the speed metal and power metal genres - during the trailblazing USA tours of the 80's introducing the States to "Athletic rock" as well as giving opening acts like Metallica and Anthrax their first tours, through the doldrums of the late 80's/early 90's when a grunge obsessed media wrote off so many acts - RAVEN has consistently proved to be both survivors par excellence and in a genre of grim imitation - shown that they are "the real thing". Where so many of their contemporaries have either faded creatively or become parodies of themselves, RAVEN have consistently pushed the envelope while retaining their unique sound and attack – both in the studio & in their true element, onstage!

Following a forced layoff through half of the last decade due to Mark Gallagher's long recuperation from a serious accident where Mark's legs were crushed after a wall collapsed on the musician, the band have fought back with a number of European festival appearances, a UK tour in 2008 and a triumphant jaunt to Japan in 2009.

In 2010, the band unleashed the best album they've done in many years, "Walk Through Fire" – quite simply, was the real deal – the right songs, the right sound and the right feel – that was guaranteed to rip yer head off!

Raven are here to finally set to reclaim the title that is rightfully theirs – "the wildest band in the fuckin' world!"
Vanlade
Vanlade
Formed in Kansas City, Kansas in 2006, Vänlade has forged its sound with nothing less than the desire to conquer the globe to bring their brand of true heavy metal to the masses. With a style rooted in traditional, speed, thrash, and power metal, music fans young and old can rejoice in this fresh sound. Riff-mad, piercing guitars, blood boiling vocals, thick, galloping bass, and ground shaking beats combine to serenade the metal warrior in all of our hearts to his eternal victory. Each show is an energetic display of technically precise sonic power - complete with denim, leather, flying hair, and banging heads, all honoring the true metal gods. Spread the word and let it be known... RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, PREPARE FOR THE STRIKE!!!

To all the Vänlade Legions out there... Stay true! Stay heavy! STAY METAL!
Hellevate
Hellevate
We reign in Kansas City, Missouri... Hellevate was founded in 2007 by Danowar. After a period of fluctuating lineups and an ever-changing environment, the final, definitive lineup of Hellevate came together in 2009 to begin its metal domination. The band, in its various lineups, has played many prominent venues in the Kansas City area, including Aftershock Bar and Grill, the Beaumont Club, The Riot Room, Davey's Uptown Rambler's Club, and The Uptown Theater. The band has also traveled through out the midwest and down south playing shows in Dallas at O'Rileys and in Fort Worth at Hot Licks. The band has also opened for many prominent touring acts including Phantom-X, Psychostick, Ghoul, Havok, Hemlock, Mushroomhead and many more. Combining a modern sound with traditional old school influences, the band seeks to dominate and annihilate the metal world through its relentless thrash attack. \m/
