Jealous Bitch - FourPlay (2002)

This band came from Auburn, NY. Basically it was a 2 piece, with guest vocalist. Paris and Tilly Hanson did all the song writing and such, and came up with 3 pretty awesome songs, and one, ok, song. Cody, Just a Touch Away, and Too Good to Sacrifice are all awesome, old school Metal songs. Bordering on Power Metal. Smile, is kind of a ballad. It's not bad, but pales in comparison to the other songs. Unfortunately, they were never able to put together a full band, and just kind of gave up. This was recorded at Loft Audio Recording in Lansing, NY, and I mastered it just a bit in 2009.

Gangland - 1989 Demo

Hailing from CA, this is just pure power metal from the start. Produced by Bill Metoyer back in the day, this is a damned cool demo, and, the only thing that this band created. The guitarist (Tracy "Spacey T" Singleton) and bass player (Stanley E.) came from Sound Barrier, the vocalist (Tim Bouchee) did some vocals for Unleashed Power, and is currently in HavocHate. Their drummer (Joel Maitoza) came from a band called Elysian. I think the first song on here is by far the best, not to say the other two aren't pretty cool as well. The last song, Metal Morphisis, is that cheesy kind of Metal song so many bands liked to write back then.

I had to master this way up to make it more listenable. Even with the decent production work that it got, it was still a 1989 cassette demo. Check it out...

Forward Now - smileremover (1995 Demo)

Now THIS, is brutal. Industrial Metal that just caves in your skull. I do believe that this was their only release, and I also think that they helped out on a track from Slave One on their release, which I will probably post sometime later. Just two guys, in your face, uncompromising noise. Yet another great band from the Rochester, NY area that went mostly unnoticed. They do have a webpage up with very little info, but they did do some other stuff. Anyways, enjoy, all newly mastered...
