Punk Rock/ Metal

Detroit, MI

"CrashDollz are THE Detroit Punk band of 2014.
Finally here to re-ignite Rock and Roll, CrashDollz bring Punk sneer with Big Rock Power into a new uncharted area.
Innovators in the Punk genre for bringing it to a very refreshing place, 
where talent is not in short supply. Metallic riffs merge seamlessly with punk attitude and 
female-fronted bombastic stage performances are part of the package"

The estrogen is upon you, in punk rock form and you'll love it. Imagine if you were finding a band like The Runaways
for the first time? Well Crashdollz are pretty close. The Metal vibe mixed with the punk rock aspect are enduring to the ears.
The guitars flow, the lyrics are powerful and vocals are spot on. I can only imagine they're stage presence is exquisite. 
I'd have to say Novacaine is my favorite, catchy lyrics that are a bit relatiable, if you're the rock your face off mosh kind of individual.

Void Opus

Progressive Metal Rock
Oklahoma City, OK
3 song EP review

"Void Opus was formed in May of 2012, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
.The three founding members Matt Cowell, Carter Litvinas, and Ryan Roring have built
 a unique musical and personal chemistry. After several tryouts on bass,
 Walter McLennan soon stepped in as the bassist.
Their sound is bridging the gap between mainstream radio Rock and Progressive Rock.
They hit Artisan Sound and Studio in April of 2013 to track their first single titled "Drown" 
and just currently finished recording two more tracks to eventually add to their EP.
 Expect to see them fully immerse themselves in the OKC rock scene this Spring/Summer"

Penence:Vocals are a bit off, but the riffs and jams I could listen to repeatedly, no lyrics, just jamming,
it'd be the perfect song.
Drown: Vocals are much better,more emphasized. the drums are very vibrant as well as the riffs are unseemingly justified. 
Reminds me of a Southern Rock/ Metal... a toned down DOWN,or Texas hippie coalition if you will.
Hivemind: A bit more of a progressive technique, kind of like "cock rock" it would be the song to get the crowd 
specifically females, the pleasure and groove they wore their leather pants for.

Stabbing Back

"Stabbingback is a Hard Rock/ Metal band originally from Seattle. We released 2 albums simultaneously;
 one, an aggressive Hard Rock/ Metal medley, and the other an acoustic rock style. On one hand,
 Stabbingback blends a classic metal style with melodically driven vocals and a powerful modern edge to form a unique sound. 
The music is very personal, pained and full of anger. On the other hand, the acoustic music is, by it’s very nature, 
less abrasive than the metal. Although not as in-your-face, Stabbingback’s acoustic material is every bit as emotional and intense. 
All the songs are originally written for this style, and are not “unplugged” versions of the metal music.
The band began in Seattle. Performing locally and completing 2 albums gave the band serious notoriety and popularity in the northwest.
 After 4 years of touring and 3 additional years of recording, line up charges, and numerous set backs,
 Stabbingback decided to change the way the band worked. 
2012, the dust has finally settled. Wiser for our troubles, strengthened by our unity, and prepared for chaos.
 The band has relocated to Boise, Idaho. The line up changes have been exhausted and new plans are now in place. 
We are exclusively a "web band" with plenty of material to present. 
Members of the band exist all over the world and participate in the creation of new material.
 Live performances have come to an indefinite halt. 
Certainly a negative to the "web band" title, but a necessary sacrifice for the project to exist.
 Now, creation of material, new and re-recorded, is our only concern.
 Clear, high production, high quality tunes that have good continuity is our goal.
 We hope you dig'em."

Amongst viewing the website, which is the most organized one I've seen thusfar;
 I discovered the band in itself is a web only band. I love the grace of this..
This technique I assume will submit less drama, and betrow a massive following.
 Amongst that, all the songs are free to download, and a new song is released every month.
So far there are 20 songs out of the 5 albums they promise, and truthfully I will look forward to the next one. 
There is a definate Slayer and Dragonforce sound influence as well as a slight In Flames or Killswitch Engage tones.
Mostly a Progressive Metal sound. 
Give it 4/5.
