21 years and over
In the mid-1990's, Weedeater arose from the ashes of the southern-drug-lord-band Buzzov-en, who had disbanded along the swampy shores of the Cape Fear river in North Carolina not too long before. Fronted by famed madman and bass virtuoso "Dixie" Dave Collins, this three piece doom juggernaut has been eating audiences alive for more than 15 years now.
LO-PAN (from Columbus OH)
Born out of a combination of dirty rock and roll, stale beer and an unhealthy obsession with "Big Trouble In Little China," Columbus's Lo-Pan have been tearing up the club circuit since 2005. Lo-Pan burst onto the local scene with their locally released self-titled album back in 2006. The local buzz gave way to more national attention as bands told bands and Lo-Pan began gracing venues big and small with names like Red Giant, Devil To Pay, Torche, the Sword, Saviours, Year Long Disaster, Red Fang, Valkyrie, & the Atomic Bitchwax (just to name a few). The newest record "Salvador" is the result of yet another frenetic battle between these humble Columbus rock and rollers and their inner demons. Eleven tracks of white hot rock and roll fury played like the boys were fighting for their immortal souls. The thunderous low ends and pummeling drums continue to beat your ears into submission. And battling it out front and center is the eternal dual between killer riffs and those soaring vocals.
Formed in Chicago in 2012 Mount Salem is a 4 piece rock and roll band. Taking influences from bands like Witchcraft, Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Shocking Blue, Jefferson Airplane, and Deep Purple. Female vocals, dark lyrics, and heavy riffs. Stripped down and loud, Mount Salem is rock and roll.
