Many Will Fall
Many Will Fall
Many Will Fall is a metal band based to of Seneca Falls NY. Having been on the local circiut for a few years now, they strive to bring a fresh sound to genre in hopes of infecting the world with a fevered need for more metal. With big sound and attitude to spare, your ears will never feel the same again.
Fall Of Humanity
Fall of Humanity began when brothers Marcus and Michael Rafferty came together for just one song. Both had spent time in national touring acts (Silent Civilian and Brand New Sin respectively) as well as their own individual local/regional projects. The brothers had spent even more time touring as techs and stagehands with other larger acts (Hellyeah, Trivium and Chimaira) and lulls from the road were few and far between. However, it was during one of these lulls that Marcus presented the idea for the song, "Hulk Blood". After years of being occupied by their own separate endeavors, the opportunity to finally collaborate together and create something of their own begged the question... Why stop at one?

The song "Fall of Humanity" came next and became the decisive, underlying theme and message behind the music. The idea that our society and way of life as a whole continues to deteriorate around us while we aimlessly stumble through our days... blinded by collective cynicism, narcissism and consumerism. All completely numb to the erosion of our morality and core values. The title was quickly adopted as the name of the project. Despite time constraints with Marcus back on the road for large durations, the brothers continued to cultivate the idea while recruiting guitarist, Jimmy Falco. Over the next year, the trio began laying the foundations for what would become, Fall of Humanity. In the summer of 2015, the final piece was added when they brought aboard bassist, Doug Rice, solidifying an already seasoned and experienced lineup.

A few months later, armed with their debut EP, Fall of Humanity began a short tour through the mid-west and back up the east coast to test the meddle of the songs and the chemistry of the band. Not only were the songs received positively, but the band quickly proved that they were a force live that could also do them justice on a stage.

After a complete nationwide tour and another year of writing complete, Fall of Humanity is tested, proven and ready for their next chapter...
Murder in Rue Morgue
Murder in Rue Morgue is a 4 piece metal band from Auburn, NY. Featuring John Wolf on bass, Matt Biss on drums, CJ Carr on guitar and vocals, and Dan Ouimette on guitar and vocals. Murder in Rue Morgue formed in 2012, and began to grow and develop the style that they currently are. Many times the question has been raised on the origin of the bands name Murder in Rue Morgue, often times people confuse us with an Iron Maiden cover band but the band names comes from an earlier source a story written by Edgar Allan Poe called The Murders in the Rue Morgue. Murder in Rue Morgue recently received a Sammy nomination for the release of their new Carbon Copy Ep. This style mixes hard scream vocals in the verses and clean strong chorus. The band is highly influenced by the bands In Flames, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Iron Maiden, and many other melodic death metal bands. Murder in Rue Morgue believes that without our friends, and family's support we wouldn't be as successful.
Ire Clad
Ire Clad
Heavy. It’s a relative term in music but Ire Clad definitely brings it. It all started in 2010 when Jerrod and Harrison who had worked together previously talked about starting a “heavy” band. The two guitarists needed a rhythm section. Jerrod talked Pete into dusting off his drums. Harrison asked Eric, a guitarist, if he wanted to try his hand at bass. Ire Clad was born. The name can be thought of as “wrapped in anger”, which seems appropriate for a metal band. It’s personified by their mascot, Iggy, who’s on the debut album cover.

A good deal of time was spent jamming and writing songs before Ire Clad played any shows. Eventually enough material was there for an album. Harrison’s garage, where they practiced, was converted into a studio. Harrison recorded, mixed and mastered all the music. Pete created the album cover and other images for the CD insert. The debut album was released in 2012. The same process also went into the second album, God of War, which was released in 2014.

Ire clad is always busy gigging, working on new songs, making videos and promoting. Live shows are loud and energetic. Catch one near you!
