Five Star Prison Cell

Dubiously labeled a "Tech metal", or "Math Rock" band, Five Star Prison Cell offer a different and non-conformist approach to songwriting. Brutally heavy, Dark and forboding with the ability to switch time, pace, genre and style at the drop of a hat; Adam, Cam, Mark and Marc take great pleasure in constantly challenging themselves while at the same time serving up a dish of fresh new and always evolving ideas to their unsuspecting but ever growing fan base.

From Ireland... 'mojoFURY'. The perfect moniker for the feisty, frisky rock of the Lisburn quartet. Their devastating sonic attack of bass, guitars and drums annihilating audiences with their loud, yet melodic sound. A four headed rock beast with a voracious appetite for heavy riffs, pounding drums and thumping bass lines, mojo fury will chew you up and spit you out, yet make you happy they did so. the tearing rasp of nirvana is coupled with the tight industrialism of NIN to form a perfectly honed rock animal.

There is more than one artist under the name of Cleric 1.) A four piece from Philadelphia, Cleric's music mixes elements of grindcore, avant garde composition, doom and... something else entirely? Influenced by other metal pioneers such as Meshuggah, Converge, Fantômas, and Neurosis, their music zeroes in on a level of brutality and experimentation that a single band rarely maintains even for a few seconds.

February 8 2007: The trashy nightclub had sold out hours before hand. The supports have been and gone. The lights were dim and there was a hum amongst the crowd. Friends had been talking about the first show for well over a year. The anticipation was swelling as people were jostling for position. When the first stomach-churning chord rung out there was no denying things would be different from that point on.
