Inter Arma
Inter Arma
Formed in 2006, Inter Arma is one of the most talked about heavy bands to come out of Richmond, VA. The group (consisting of T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. After Sundown's release, Inter Arma began a rigorous DIY touring schedule, playing shows with bands like Cough, Krallice, Mutant Supremacy, Castevet, Royal Thunder, Ken Mode, The Body, Hull, Batillus, Black Breath and many more.

In 2012, the band released a 12" EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records. Based on the strength of this EP they immediately signed to Relapse Records and embarked on a self-booked month long tour. The band excitedly commented, "It's pretty crazy to think that we'll be tacitly associated with bands like Neurosis, Amorphis, Human Remains, diSEMBOWELMENT, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Incantation, Mastodon, et al. That's a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we'll give it our damndest." Expect Inter Arma to deliver on their promise.
Yautja
Yautja
The past year has been a whirlwind for Nashville, TN upstarts YAUTJA. February saw the release of their highly heralded debut LP ‘Songs of Descent’ followed by a relentless tour schedule. Over the stretch of the past year the band has logged well over 100 shows and spent roughly a third of the year in the van including a full US tour with Salt Lake City’s nihilistic caustic metalcore cretins CULT LEADER (Deathwish), a Canadian tour with Wisconsin grind freaks NO BRAINER, as well as a short stint with BLACK BREATH, MUTILATION RITES, and THEORIES that included a stop at Maryland Death Fest. The band also performed at the inaugural Southern Darkness Festival, Greensboro’s Suck Fest, as well as string of dates at this past year’s SXSW music festival in which they were hand picked to be part of NPR’s ‘Austin 100′ music sampler released each year for the festivities.
