ASG

North Carolina. US
ASG is a small band with a sound that’s big in so many ways. The trio formed following the break-up of local Wrigthsville Beach punk band the Urethra Franklins when Andy Ellis (bass) and Scott Key (drums) teamed up with guitarist Jason Shi. Together they created a perfect fusion of punk and metal. “If we had to classify it… we’d just say we play loud..” raves guitarist Jason Shi commenting on their punk, metal and classic rock n’ roll sound. “We’re definitely not emo”. And all who have seen them live would surely agree to that.

Heaven's Edge

Heavens Edge was a highly melodic rock band that flirted with AOR. They played a similar style to that of Harem Scarem but came upon the metal scene too late to make many waves.
Mark Evans (vocals), Reggie Wu (guitar/keyboards), Steven Parry (guitar), George "G.G." Guidotti (bass) and David Rath (drums) got together in Philadelphia, PA to form Heavens Edge. With an uncanny ability of fusing hard rock riffs with huge melodies, it wasn't long before their demo tape attracted Columbia records and resulted in a recording contract.
