COCAINE MOUSTACHE - Showcasing a wide mixture of styles, Cocaine Moustache sounds like the dysfunctional love child of Black Sabbath and The Allman Brothers with a little ZZ Top and James Brown mixed in for the hell of it. Formed in 2009, the band features members from many of Vancouver's top local metal/punk outfits including Zuckuss, Mecha Messiah, The Golers, Tyrants Blood, Cum Soc, Tendonitis and Mechanism.

TROPHY WIFE put the mental back in instrumental, combining blistering riffs, funky bass and rhythmic beats into an intensely contagious blend that has hooked fans at venues throughout Vancouver. It's hard to pin down their mix of rock, funk, metal and blues, but they've steadily made believers out of legions of people who simply didnt know they would like an instrumental act until they heard Trophy Wife. Foregoing a singer and the desire to be conventional or mainstream, Trophy Wife steals all the glory for themselves by dazzling ears, pleasing eyes, moving asses, melting faces and doing other unmentionable things to every other body part you can think of!

CRIMSON ROOTS -- This is the dawning of a great age, one where man and metal can live as one with rock as their foundation. Deep in this time was birthed a band. In the dying moments of '07, a young man entered a basement lair that would make the average man tremble. Hit by the soulful cry of a gleaming, radiant guitar and taken over by a driving, powerful beat, he plugged in his bass guitar with pure euphoria and screamed with all the love and hate within him. Showcasing an original blend of east coast hard party music and west coast psychedelia, three warriors pillaged the vaults of creativity within their minds, their intense passionate musical voyage spawned the heavy, groove-rockin juggernaut that is Crimson Roots.
