It's a respect issue and growing up in Queens, NY you either have to kill or be killed. EMMURE have embraced this ideology and have grown stronger as a result. However, instead of taking out their aggressions in negative ways they channeled their collective angst into their music to create a propulsive blend of unabashed aggression and intensity that the youth across the world embrace with open arms.
EMMURE keep it simple and straight-forward, but this coupled with vocalist Frankie Palmeri's brutal openness and honesty connects to people on a level that few others can. Everyone has demons and dark sides to their lives, but this group shows that everyone deals with these types of issues and that there are productive ways to let it all out. EMMURE have gained the loyalty of the metal community and legions of rabid fans, but make no mistake if you disrespect them you will be left sleeping with the fishes.

A Chelsea Grin in soccer hooligan terminology is the act of cutting a rivals mouth with either a credit card or blade and then kicking them in the crotch so their mouth muscles split into a bloody grimace. Chelsea Grin, the band from Utah armed with THREE guitarists use a foundation of hardcore grit combined with death metal technicality and grind speed to produce as much aural harm as the back alley jaw split.

“You should do whatever it takes to have fun and enjoy the music you’re hearing. A party is whatever you make it out to be.”
Party death metal rockers Attila formed in their hometown of Atlanta in 2005, meeting each other at their high school and through mutual friends. Their mutual love of music (and partying) brought the guys together to form what would eventually become the fourth imprint
on the Artery Foundation/Razor & Tie joint venture, Artery Recordings.
When the guys set out to name their newly formed band, they knew they were looking for a simple, one word name that didn’t imply the typical death metal cliché terms such as “blood, dying, and darkness.” One day they found themselves in a bookstore passing around a book about Attila the Hun, and so Attila was born.
Over the years Attila has gone through a few lineup changes, but founding members Fronz and Sean have remained a constant staple. For the past two years, the band has consisted of Fronz (vocals), Nate (guitar), Chris (guitar), Sean (drums) and Paul (bass). This lineup really brought together Attila’s sound and image that they are known for today. The band began touring full time and as of summer 2010, has been on the road almost non-stop for two years.
Attila released two prior albums, Fallacy and Soundtrack To A Party, on Statik Factory Records, and have previously toured with Arsonists Get All The Girls, See You Next Tuesday, Chelsea Grin, America Me, and We Are The End. RAGE, Attila’s Artery Recording/Razor & Tie debut will be released May 11, 2010, and is a unique mix of heavy music infused with elements that make each song fun to listen to and put the listener in the mood to party. “The title can be perceived in many ways, one obviously being a state of extreme anger, and the other being the slang meaning – to party! I have always been a fan of play-on-words and double meanings, and that’s what drew me to this title more than anything,” Fronz commented.
While Attila certainly evokes thoughts of partying, the band is trying to expand the public’s immediate thoughts about party metal through RAGE. They describe the album and their overall take on music as a way of letting loose and having fun, and allowing the listener to take away that message in whatever context they find fitting. As Fronz said, “All we want is for the listener to have a fun experience, and that is the main message behind RAGE.” Attila Website Attila @ Facebook Attila @ Twitter

BURIED IN VERONA
Upon formation in 2007, Sydney’s Buried In Verona showed early potential with an exceptional eagerness and drive, earning them the attention of Australian distributor Riot! Entertainment.
The young band was offered a distro deal, which led to the recording of their debut album “Circle the Dead” in 2008 at Powerhouse Studios, Sydney. They worked with Greg Stace, dual-Aria nominated producer DW Norton, and Steve Smart of 301 Studios, who recorded, mixed, and mastered the CD. The album was quick to reach major Australian retailers, building BIV’s portfolio and reputation – all this before even playing their first show.
As BIV hit the stage, their local hype instantly amounted to state-wide and national attention. Their modest approach and dynamic delivery created an appeal that fans flocked to, securing them a support position with the USA’s Whitechapel. In 2009, the band returned to the studio and began writing and recording a new album, scheduled for 2010. Having grown as musicians and individuals, their matured attitude was reflected in their writing. Their continued mission to improve was noticed by Fredrik Nordstrom who offered them a recording opportunity (producer for Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir, Opeth). BIV packed their bags and made their first overseas venture to Gothenburg, Sweden, where they recorded with Nordstrom, as well as Henrik Udd and Andy Haybell.
Their fresh release, titled “Saturday Night Sever,” was picked up by Warner Music Australia, who distributed the CD in stores and online. The band returned home, and commenced a year-long touring period. In this time, BIV played with both Australian and international artists, including Whitechapel (USA), Soilwork (SWE), The Haunted (SWE), Escape the Fate (USA), Pierce the Veil (USA), Evergreen Terrace (USA), Casey Jones (USA), We Are The Ocean (UK), Oh, Sleeper (USA), The Devil Wears Prada (USA), and the Amity Affliction. Recently, in 2011, BIV jumped ships to The Harbour Agency label, meeting booking agent Matt Leost.
With extensive support at home, interest is also substantially growing in both Europe and the USA, with rumours of tour dates in the works. Their plans for the year extend to an upcoming release, entitled “The Notorious B.I.V.” The band are planning a new direction for themselves, holding onto their foundations and origins, while at the same time escaping the ‘metal’ title to explore a more dynamic approach to music. As musicians, they seek to evoke happiness, hope, and friendship in a scene overflowing with messages of anger and hatred. The members wish to build a more personal connection with their fanbase through relatable themes, shedding a light into their own lives and experiences.
“We are drawing inspiration from every aspect of music rather than limiting ourselves to a single direction. We want the style to suit the song. We want our music to not only be heard or seen, but felt. Innovation over imitation. We know where we’ve come from, and we know where we want to go. Our music is maturing just like we are.” Buried In Verona Website Buried In Verona @ Facebook Buried In Verona @ Last.fm Buried In Verona @ ReverbNation Buried In Verona @ Twitter Buried In Verona @ YouTube
