Lucretia's Daggers: With a namesake derived from '80s cult band The Sisters of Mercy, Shakespeare/Livy-penned poetic biography, and 16th c. Borgia legend, Boston, Massachusetts' five-piece Lucretia's Daggers blend darkwave, synthpop, and ambient metal with dramatic female vocals and have brought an arty touch to their "dark lyrical electro-rock for the apocalypse" since August 2001. http://www.lucretiasdaggers.com/
Dead Harrison: Dead Harrison is a three-piece band from southern New Hampshire. The trio consisting of bassist Skulls, guitarist Shaun, and drummer/vocalist Drae has an upbeat yet doomy sound, pulling from influences of Black Sabbath, Type O Negative and the Misfits. Think stoner rock with a dash of punk and metal. With story-like songs about love and death and the joining of the two, Dead Harrison share a sonic therapy for all. These guys plan to leave a legacy. http:www.reverbnation.com/deadharrison
Echo Weapon: With 25+ shows under his belt, Echo Weapon is a one man project influenced by NIN, Marilyn Manson, and Joy Division. Sounding like Tears for Fears meets Smashing Pumpkins meets Mad Max, Echo Weapon is a whirlwind of crunchy electro grunge/rock with powerful haunting vocals and guitars over a drum machine. Recently featured on Punk FM television, he is 80% done recording his first album. He also likes to slappa da bass...and rocks with the strength of many ninjas! http://m.soundcloud.com/brian-zakrzewski
Marcelo Carboni: A transplant from Brazil, soulful vocalist/songwriter Marcelo Carboni folded his eight-year-old hard rock metal Boston band silencio and started his acoustic project in order to give his eardrums and throat a break. Expect some Bossa nova… slow samba….Everything from Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” to a-ha’s “Take on Me”…and some originals as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBvLtA9ye3A
