Silver Snakes
Silver Snakes
Year of the Snake is Silver Snakes' first full-length in nearly three years, following 2011's Pictures of a Floating World (as well as 2012's Old Light single and last year's split EP with Souvenirs and Sundance teaser). Their sophomore effort builds on the promise of those releases, delivering a heavy, uncompromising, metallic post-hardcore/alternative hybrid experimentally touching upon both ends of the rock spectrum, from sludgy forays to acoustic detours and a snarling melodic sensibility spread throughout.
Night Verses
Forming in 2012, Night Verses have enjoyed a break-out year including the release of the Kris Crummett produced "Out of the Sky" EP, the debut of the Dannel Escallon directed video for "Be Happy With Yourself, I'm Staying Here In Hell", and a run of concert dates on both U.S. coasts and across the U.K. Their virtuosic attention to detail and progressive approach to groove are being universally lauded as a fresh new sound, paying homage to decades of influences while managing to retool their roots into bold originality. Rock Sound's Andy Ritchie described the new comers as already displaying as much "dynamism and energy as most bands put into their entire careers."

Defined by a disciplined work ethic that makes them truly prolific, vocalist Douglas Robinson, guitarist Nick DePirro, bassist Reilly Herrera, and drummer Aric Improta are currently composing music for a 2013 release to be followed by extensive touring. Only choosing to record that which they can recreate live, any listener starving for authenticity will appreciate the visceral intricacy of their aesthetic. Night Verses' sophisticated and deliberate approach assumes a level of intellectuality of the listener, while at the same time begging the listener to simply let go and share a moment in time together. Hungry and emboldened Night Verses are creating a body of work simply not to be ignored.
