What happens when you put a bunch of bloodthirsty, music-loving goblins together? Well, a lot of disembowelment, but also a lot of catchy tunes. Formed six millennia ago, and practicing only every other leap year on a full moon, the band has perfected their brand of crushing goblin metal. On a cold, dreary winter night in July of 2006, Nicholas Von Doom and Tim were in the woods engaging in general tomfoolery when they stumbled upon a mysterious cardboard box with their names crudely inscribed with a Sharpie® Permanent Marker.
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.

Sebastian Clark is a wonderful experimental folk musician who made his debut album, Songs from a Van, quite literally from his van using a myriad of electrical sources to record. What mostly shines through on this tuneful disc is a breezy fondness for the bright, sunny side of pop radio’s golden days –– Lennon/McCartney, Simon & Garfunkel, and Jim Croce in particular. Highlights of Clark’s new-millennium hippie wanderlust are “Home” and the singalong “All Of My Love.”

But instead of headlining concerts, Rock Sugar made the headlines when they were presumed lost forever after playing an extremely ill advised gig celebrating the bat mitzvah of 13-year-old Lisa Rosenberg.
