Trouble was formed in 1979 by guitarist Rick Wartell and was joined by guitarist Bruce Franklin, vocalist Eric Wagner, bassist Tim Ian Brown, and drummer Jeff Oly Olson. Ian Brown was replaced by Sean McAllister in 1983 and by Ron Holzner in 1987. The Skull features original TROUBLE members vocalist Eric Wagner and drummer Jeff Olson alongside TROUBLE's longtime bassist Ron Holzner and Sacred Dawn's guitarists Lothar Keller and Michael Carpenter. The Skull is here to do one thing… rock you with the sounds and spirit of Trouble -past-present-future.
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.
Enforcer was formed in Chicago in 1983 and is still performing together with all the original members. The band is now seeking professional management and bookings. The group performed numerous shows at now long-lost Chicago venues such as Haymakers, Rusty Nail, Edgewater, and the legendary Thirsty Whale.
From the burning embers of horror punk band Gravedirt (members of The Massacres and The Gravetones), an new monster has been forged in molten steel... CRUSADER comes screaming to life with the spirit of metal, more specifically NWOBHM. We wanted to play heavier, harder and faster than we had an any of our other bands. Think of a Crusader tank driving over a minefield littered with the skulls of the enemy dead...We're taking it back to the roots: Drinking beers, throwing the horns and playing metal...
