Born Of Osiris
Born Of Osiris
Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band formed in 2003 in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Ronnie Canizaro, guitarist Lee McKinney, bassist David Da Rocha, drummer Cameron Losch, and keyboardist/vocalist Joe Buras. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished (2003–2004), Your Heart Engraved (2004–2006), and Rosecrance (2006–2007), before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007,[1] basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris and the tale of his son Horus.

Gideon
Gideon
Gideon is an American Christian heavy metal band hailing from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who were established in 2008. The group's current label imprint is Equal Vision Records and formers were Facedown Records and Strike First Records. In 2011, the band came out with a studio album called Costs with Strike First. Their second studio album was issued in 2012, titled Milestone, under current imprinter Facedown. On Febuarary 10, 2016 Gideon announced that they left Facedown Records and signed to Equal Vision Records[1] and will release their fourth album later in the year.[not verified in body] The band released their first single "Pulling Teeth", on July 1, 2016.[2]
Currents
Sometimes time is the missing ingredient needed in order for an idea to come to fruition. Such is the case with rising metalcore/djent band Currents, who after forming in 2011 spent the next few years discovering their identity and evolving into the thriving band they are today. After a change in vocalist in 2015, adding Brian Wille to the group, Jeff Brown (drums), Chris Wiseman (guitar), Ryan Castaldi (guitar) and Dee Cronkite (bass) solidified their lineup with members who shared a common current of energy that moved through one another towards the same vision.

That vision will come to light on the band's debut album due out this summer. Speaking of the forthcoming record, Brown says "it's definitely dark lyrically. Although some of the leads and drums might make it more upbeat. Over all the album is about Brian's thoughts and fighting his demons. We left all the vocals up to him so he could have full creative control. It turned out awesome and we are super proud of it. The instruments came together over 2 years of writing. We went into the studio with over 50 songs and ideas and left with 13 songs we believed were our best work."

The upcoming record will mark Currents' debut, full-length album, following two previous EPs with their former vocalist. The release also finds them partnering with their new label, SharpTone Records, which is home to contemporaries like Atilla, Emmure, Miss May I, We Came As Romans and While She Sleeps among others.

Brown adds, "SharpTone Records is an absolute dream come true. Every single band has a dream of getting signed. However, getting signed nowadays doesn't mean much without the right people behind you. We waited and passed on many offers before talking with Shawn (Keith) and Sal (Torres) at SharpTone. These two guys have a genuine love and passion for music. That then translated to our band and we could tell that they were in this for the long haul. The relationship has been nothing short of amazing and we can't wait to see what the future holds."

After biding their time, the future looks bright as Currents embark on what will undoubtedly be their most successful and busiest year to date!
The Crooked Sound
Saving Vice
Saving Vice is an American metalcore band from New England founded by bassist Robbie Litchfield in late 2015. Litchfield soon added guitarist Zach Racicot and vocalist Chase Papariello. It wasn't until later on that the band included the final pieces of their lineup - vocalist Tyler Small and guitarist Cody Grant. Since their official debut in early 2017, Saving Vice has shared the stage with acts like Through the Eyes of the Dead, Unearth, Convictions, It Lies Within, Tear Out The Heart and The Devil Wears Prada. The group’s high energy live performances, catchy choruses, and hard-hitting riffs aided by the chemistry created by the dual vocalists helped them make their mark on the local New England scene.
After a successful summer run across the northeast, the band took time to work on their upcoming EP and released their stand-alone, debut single "Exhale” January 12, 2018. A few months later, the band released "Euthanasia" the first single off the "Colder Than Dark EP." The sound and energy Saving Vice has brought to the current heavy music scene is both refreshing and nostalgic. Their sound is reminiscent of early 2000s metalcore coupled with nuances of modern metalcore. Simple and poppy, yet unapologetically brutal and dark.
You can find them at the 2018 Vans Warped Tour in Mansfield, MA on July 27.
Rise & Resist
Halcyon
Dream Of Scipio
Formed in Ansonia, CT 2011, Dream of Scipio took the CT Metal Scene by storm. Mashing together elements of hardcore, technical, and death metal they quickly grew into a 5 headed monster making them a real contender in the CT music scene.




"Dream Of Scipio are decidedly hardcore, which is usually not really my thing, but they mix in a lot of tech and death elements that make their stuff a lot of fun to listen to anyway. They count a wide variety of awesome bands among their influences (from Rush to Dethklok to Alice in Chains…seriously), and as a result their sound doesn’t fit neatly into just one category."



"A technical, driven strain of metal- and death-core, Dream Of Scipio are making waves in the Connecticut metal scene. “Nails And Glass” spins from swirling chaos to half-time groove all bubbling under inhuman growls of anger and disgust. Cap it all off with a hummable guitar lead and Dream Of Scipio have all the elements for a modern metal masterpiece."
