Moon Tooth
Moon Tooth
"Gut-thumping prog and punk influenced metal that effortlessly blends the high-adrenaline and technical virtuosity of The Dillinger Escape Plan with the snarl of Mastodon." - Good Times Magazine

Moon Tooth is the new project of long-time friends and collaborators Nick Lee & Ray Marte. The band formed after the breakup of their previous endeavor, Exemption, which released several albums and made many friends touring the east coast during their seven year run from 2005 - 2012. Determined not to let that band's dissolve slow them down, they immediately began work on a bigger, bolder, more aggressive project that became known as Moon Tooth.

Moon Tooth finds the pair at a new plateau of focus and energy. They quickly found kinship and camaraderie with vocalist John Carbone (Rice Cultivation Society) and bassist Vin Romanelli (Give Up The Goods) who both a bring a great deal of personality to the band's sound. This band is eager to crush you with some devastating new jams. First EP entitled simply "FREAKS" was released 7/25/13 & recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ray Marte & Moon Tooth at Westfall Recording Co. in Farmingdale, NY from Winter - Summer 2013 but their live show is where the band truly delivers and with many new tunes already in the works for a full-length they will all assure you that you haven't heard anything yet.
Netherlands
NETHERLANDS WERE FORMED IN 2008 IN NYC BY TIMO ELLIS (GUITAR, VOCALS) WITH AVA FARBER (SYNTHBASS) AND ZACH EICHENHORN (DRUMS)

LEAD SINGER AND MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST TIMO ELLIS IS FROM NYC. HE'S RECORDED AND PLAYED WITH YOKO ONO, CIBO MATTO, JOHN ZORN, THE MELVINS, GIBBY HAYNES, WEEN, JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN, SPACEHOG AND WHITE HILLS AMONG MANY OTHERS, AS WELL AS PUT OUT OVER 25 MUSICALLY WIDELY VARIED SOLO ALBUMS AS TE AND UNDER SEVERAL OTHER PSEUDONYMS.

"NETHERLANDS rejects restraint in favor of maximum impact: shredding chops, soaring vocals, and maddening hooks. Following Ellis' mission statement of making music that is equally "light-hearted, brutal, ecstatic", Netherlands crushes decades' worth of bombast into psychotropic nuggets of evil rock bliss. With nods to the dirtbag rituals of 70s heavy metal, the grandeur of 80s arena rock, and the crunch and hooks of 90s alternative." -Curran Reynolds
Dead Empires
Dead Empires
Dead Empires ia a 4-piece metal band from NY/NJ. Previously instrumental, they added singer/noise Jason 'PrKr' Sherman in 2017.

"New York progressive metal outfit Dead Empires had long mastered the art of frantic, sludge-drenched instrumental music but on third full-length Designed to Disappear, the band upped the ante with the addition of vocalist Jason Sherman. The end result is an album that is just as exhilarating as their previous output, the vocals adding another dimension of intensity. " - Vince Bellino, Decibel Magazine [more]

"Traditionally an instrumental group that played on the heavy side of prog-metal, Dead Empires' recent inclusion of vocalist Jason Sherman has resulted in a tremendous shift..." – Exclaim!

"Angular and unpredictable... Soaring, cinematic, Mastodonian." – MetalSucks

"From a sound indebted to skronky Northeast hardcore to a climax that shares melodic DNA with an Ariana Grande hit." – Invisible Oranges

"The best parts of hardcore, sludge metal, technical bits, groove towns, and literally whatever else they want to do." – Gear Gods

"A wild, proggy joyride into the heart of Dillinger Escape Plan worship, Designed to Disappear is also so much more, shredding through one major/modal/mixed-up riff after the next." – Free Williamsburg

"With the addition of vocalist Jason Sherman (Torrential Downpour) the band takes on a new persona. And it’s one of a heavier ilk... The hues painted with this album are some of the deepest the band has mined to date and they pull it off with an ease befitted of only the most seasoned vets in the game." – Nine Circles
