Slo Burn was a short-lived stoner rock band out of Palm Desert, California that formed in 1996 in the wake of Kyuss' demise. They only released one EP entitled Amusing the Amazing before disbanding. The band comprised of Damon Garrison (bass), Chris Hale (guitar), Brady Houghton (drums) and John Garcia (vocals). Slo Burn toured with Ozzfest in 1997 but split up toward the end of the tour, effectively finishing the band at the same time the EP was released.
Formed in April 2004, 15 Times Dead take their speed, power and melody from some of the major rock and metal bands of the seventies, eighties and nineties into one powerful outfit. Described as a high energy, fast and powerful metal act, the self proclaimed Godfathers of Girth Metal burst onto the Glasgow metal scene and in their first year reached the Scottish Final of Emergenza playing to a packed Carling Academy in Glasgow with the judges calling them "A powerful act with a very distinct style and a lot of energy on stage" culminating in Andy winning the best bass player on the night.

There are several artists using this name: Red (USA) (often typeset as R3D) is an American alternative band formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2004. Musically influenced by artists such as Linkin Park, Chevelle, and Muse, Red's style is the rare symphonic rock which blends guitars and strings with passionate vocals.

According to lead vocalist Mike Barnes, Red stands for the blood of Christ and what it represents: passion, pain, but ultimately, redemption.
