    Fireball Ministry

    Stoner Metal

    Fireball Ministry ain’t got a rule book. If shit rocks, it rocks. Period.
    From the beginning, the hard rockin’ and hard partyin’ crew have aggressively steered clear of pretentiousness,
    trends and all manner of poseurdom, throwing down analog-soaked, bottom-heavy tunes and tipping a hat toward
    the best of the past without sounding like a mere retread or novelty.
    Famously described as Sabbath partying with Priest and Grand Funk Railroad, there’s no nonsense in the
    Fireball camp. James A. Rota II (guitar, vocals), Emily J. Burton (guitar), John Oreshnick (drums) and recent
    addition, legendary bassist Scott Reeder (The Obsessed, Kyuss), call ‘em as they see ‘em, refuse to kiss ass
    and have flown the flag for authenticity for a dozen years.
    A clandestine and subversive cadre of true-believers from all walks of life have spread the good word about
    Fireball Ministry since they relocated from New York City to Hollywood, where the band has mooched a brew
    or three from the rich and famous without losing themselves or their sound. The list of legendary icons who
    have invited Fireball Ministry to share their stages reads like a crucial discography of desert island riffs: Dio.
    Judas Priest. Alice Cooper. Blue Oyster Cult. Uriah Heap. Motörhead. And the list goes on...
    Fireball asked an important question with their debut in 1999: Ou Est La Rock? In 2001 they released an EP on
    Small Stone, FMEP, enlisting the bass rumblings of Brad Davis (Fu Manchu). Four years later, the rumble rang
    louder from the underground, with MTV News taking notice of The Second Great Awakening (Nuclear Blast).
    Their third album, 2005’s Their Rock Is Not Our Rock (Century Media), was recorded at Dave Grohl's 606 West studio,
    and like their previous album, produced by genre legend Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains).
    The album won the band an appearance on “Last Call with Carson Daly” as well as support slots with CKY, Opeth,
    Clutch and Bam Margera’s Viva La Bands tour. In 2010 Fireball Ministry released their self-titled fourth studio album
    Fireball Ministry, produced by Andrew Alekel (Fu Manchu, Kyng).
    As with each stage of their career, Fireball Ministry is determined to define success on their own terms and to
    forge ahead with lives as free from compromise as possible.
    “I don’t want to ever have to make excuses for our band or what we’ve done, ever,” says Rota, without spite or malice
    in his voice. “If that means that I don’t own four summer homes somewhere and a fleet of classic cars, well then, so
    be it. I couldn’t live with myself if I ever had to say, ‘There was a point where I totally lost it [creatively], but I sure made
    a bunch of money doing it.’
    “It’s not for us,” he concludes simply. “It never has been. And it never will be.

    Barnes

    Alternative Rock

    Barnes is an assemblage of cats who dig rockin’ and ballin’. Hailing from Hollywood, they got two guitars, bass, drums, tambourine, and a whole mess of vocals. They’re like if Fugazi and Thin Lizzy had a baby. And, isn’t that what the world’s been waiting for? (Yes.)

  • Ironaut

    Ironaut

    Doom Metal

    Ironaut has been spawned from the primordeal ooze brewed from the cauldron of riffs conjured by Pat McHugh (formerly of The Sixth Chamber), then transmuted through the sonic rhythmic alchemy of Erik Kluiber (formerly of Overloaded/White Wizzard/Gypsyhawk) and Ivan Najor (formerly of Level).

    Originally hailing from Chicago, Pat, along with native Detroiters Erik on bass and Ivan on drums, brings some ballsy Midwestern grit to the streets of Los Angeles.

    Disciples of Doom, Stoner, Sludge, Hard Psych, Proto and Classic Metal, Heavy Prog, old school Punk, Thrash, Groove, high octane Rock and Roll, amp worship, drug/counterculture, altered states, cosmic jokes, cold beer, whiskey, weed, and loose women. This is their religion, and the streets shall flow with the blood of the nonbelievers. 

    Ironaut is on a mission to defy the confining boundaries of adhering to this or that sub genre, and pummel listeners with any and all conceivable means of heavy by balancing the raw and refined, fast and slow, old and new, visceral and cerebral, simple and complex.

    Prepare your lungs and livers to behold the impending substance abuse of IRONAUT!
