  • Deadwood Stone

    'The Man'[audio:|titles=Deadwood Stone - The Man]

    One listen to Deadwood Stone and it will be apparent that they have a no-nonsense approach to writing songs. Anthemic melodies combined with big guitar riffs, catchy hooks, and monstrous percussion make up what Deadwood Stone is all about. It’s a straight-forward rocking band of four guys making music brewed in the gut and shot from the hip.

  • The Malcontent

    'From the Coffin to the Grave'[audio:|titles=The Malcontent - From the Coffin to the Grave]

    The Malcontent is a 5 piece band, hailing from the metro Detroit area. With the goal of playing music to make them stand out from the norm, they have been crafting a unique sound, blending hardcore, punk and metal. Since early 2010 they have set out to prove just how versatile their music is by playing alongside bands of every genre.

  • Fall Prey

    'Disco'[audio:|titles=Fall Prey - Disco]

    Fall Prey is a collaboration of huge drums, crunchy guitars, ground-shaking bass, and powerful, melodic vocals. The band's approach is simple -- "We write music that means something to us, and hopefully people will appreciate that."

  • Society Kills

    'Life of the Party'[audio:|titles=Society Kills - Life of the Party]

    Society Kills is a hardcore-punk/thrash-metal band that has been a staple of the Michigan music scene for years. Over the years of playing shows across the state, their music has progressed into something fairly unique, blending all of their influences into a sound that is distinctly their own.
