Joining him are Jimmy Moore on bass and Matt Taylor on drums. Together the trio are garnering a buzz with their blazing live sets.

In this instance, five individuals have come together to explore a musical journey that is yet to be traveled. From quiet San Antonio nights, the sound of curves have echoed their voices to bring the music and people they love together. There are no restraints or limits to a style to adhere to; instead, there is only the live subtle energy and evolving danceable grooves that shape this group. “so go and take shape”.

    Ugly Twin

    UGLYTWIN is a three piece hardcore band from Austin Texas. Starting as The Brigade in 2009 as an idea and has grown into a full on force to deal with. Pooling their influences ranging from late 90's metalcore to chaos metal and southern hardcore, UGLYTWIN’s sound has become one that is distinctly theirs, and increasingly hard to categorize or pin down. Their music is passionate, hard and unpredictable, with each new song is an attempt to stretch creatively and find the balance between brutality and hope.

    Straying from the path of ordinary & cliché, SeVIIn delivers unpredictable, hard-hitting, storyteller rock. Their unique sound stems from the band's vast influences, which range from Johnny Cash to Slipknot and all walks in between. With clear minds and an unrelenting work ethic, mediocrity doesn't exist. After their intense live show, a listener will feel like they have lived every unapologetic note coming through the speakers. And when the last note is played and the sustain turns into a memory, you're sure to find 3 hearts left bleeding on the stage.

    Trashy and The Kid

    TATK combines the same old randiness, sarcasm, and smartass humor with thick undercurrents of loss, desire, battle-worn optimism and barely-concealed rage, to make pop-rock anthems and punk-metal shredfests that never overstay their welcome but stay with you way past your bedtime. NEVER SLEEP. TATK

    Obscure Oracle

    Obscure Oracle is a diversely influenced thrash metal band hailing from the Lone Star State. The band was formed by guitarist Danny David. His former experience as a member and songwriter for Demonstruction helped influence the unique sound of the band. Due to Danny previously working with vocalist Rusty Bartholomeo in a different band, he called for Rusty to be the lead vocalist and write the lyrical content for the band.

    For their first album, “Roots of Existence,” Obscure Oracle combined progressive metal, thrash metal, and death metal to create the album’s hybrid sound. Through their years of progression, from their first gig in 2012 to now, Obscure Oracle’s sound has shifted into pure thrash metal. The shift can be heard in their 2015 EP, “In Death We Trust.”
