I, EMPEROR - Blistering, melodic nu-metal with aggressive, guttural vocals, inventive songs structures, a tight rhythm section and tasty, hook-laden downtuned guitars that will appeal to fans of Tool, Pantera, Soundgarden, Faith No More & Our Lady Peace. http://www.myspace.com/iemperormusic

The FLAIRS are taking the world by storm with edgy, high energy pop-punk that harkens back to the days of '70s punk and '80s hair metal, sweetly flavoured with honeyed vocals over frayed power chords and frenzied beats. Featuring former members of Tuuli and Bif Naked's band, their latest CD "Shut Up And Drive" skillfully blends youthful spirit and undeniable talent, unleashing thier original sound on an unsuspecting public hungry for living, breathing, punk-coloured hard rock with smart pop sensibilities. With success in the Far East and opening spots with INXS, the sky's the limit for this talented hard-rocking quartet! http://www.myspace.com/theflairs

The SAINTS COLLAPSE (formerly THIS WEEK IN HISTORY) are a group of silver-tongued devils out to worm their way in to the proverbial undergarments of the music industry. Featuring former members of This Week In History, Rakshasa and Burn Project, this local A-Team delivers appealingly catchy songs created with unusual combinations of instruments and experimentation. Paired with the on-stage antics of a band let loose, this is what you wished you had found every time you've been disappointed at a live rock show... a REAL danger-fueled rock'n'roll show! http://www.myspace.com/thesaintscollapse

WAR OF THE MINDS can do things mere mortals can only dream of -- playing instruments with three hands at once, singing with forked melodies, winning music competitions held on other planets, and transfusing their potent musical elixir into your bloodstream with an intense combination of emotionally raw vocals, post-punk guitars, rollercoaster drums and inventive, melodic bass. Their riff-heavy music is explosive and exciting, dynamic and contagious with a dark, psychedelic edge. Come hear songs from their forthcoming debut CD before the rest of the herd finds out and tramples you in their wake! http://www.waroftheminds.com
