Cultural Warfare
Cultural Warfare
Hailing out of Oakland, California, Cultural Warfare is comprised of five seasoned musicians with common goals - Vocalist, Jacques Serrano, Guitarist, Billy Garoutte, Guitarist, Kevin Doughty, Bassist, Pete Aguilar, and Drummer, Bones Padilla. Together they create music that stays true to the classic Bay Area sound of its’ time while creating a modern twist in the music to create a melodic, yet aggressive sound within the unit. With all five members having long standing roots in the Bay Area, back to the golden age of Thrash metal, Cultural Warfare understands the rich history and lineage of all the classic bands that paved the way for all heavy bands for the modern age. With that said, the band has created a sound of their own while flying the flag of music that inspired them along the way. Cultural Warfare is signed with former Century Media President, Marco Barbieri, who is now the leader of his own empire, M -THEORY AUDIO. Juan Urteaga, of Trident Studios, has also played a huge role in the bands’ sound, while co-producing the 2017 E.P. Future Kill E.P. and the 2018 full length Warmageddon. The unit came to call Trident Studios it's new home and continues to work with Juan Urteaga, a true professional at his craft. Juan has produced many of the heavy Bay Area bands such as Exodus, Skinlab, Testament, Machine Head, Vicious Rumors, and a long list of others. Cultural Warfare is proud to be a part of the infamous Bay Area Music Scene.
The Watchers
The Watchers

Mudface
Mudface
The San Francisco Bay area Metal scene has a long and storied history of spawning some powerful and innovative acts: Metallica, Death Angel, Exodus, Testament and more recently Leviathan & High On Fire. With the release of the grinding single “HellFoot” on Feb. 12th, the Bay Area natives of Mudface are ready to carry on that tradition. Their 2nd National album release “The Bane Of Existence”, produced by Sahaj Ticotin (RA) & Bob Marlette (Atreyu, Coal Chamber, Rob Zombie, Seether) will be released on March 18th, 2016. Formed in 2005 by Dinsmore and Ted Aguilar (Death Angel), Mudface has released 2 Self-titled EP’S, and one full length album titled “ANTI” that was produced by Tim Narducci (Systematic, Spiral Arms). “ANTI” received Metal Radio airplay all over the world. The current lineup of Mudface came together as a band over time while crossing paths in the Bay Area Metal scene. Magnetized by their shared musical influences of icons like Megadeth, Death Angel, Testament, Nine Inch Nails and Iron Maiden, among others – One by one, they were all drawn into the Mudface universe. Lead vocalist Chris Dinsmore is the only original and founding member. Keyboardist Brett Crane came on board in 2009; Rob Kolowitz and son Grant are one of the only Father/Son teams in Metal and joined the band in late 2012. Bassist Jim Pegram joined during the writing of “The Bane of Existence” in early 2015. Drummer Tim Davis joined in late 2015 after the album was recorded, and the band’s current lineup was solidified.

The band puts their core philosophy succinctly: “We want to prove that the Metal genre is NOT dead. Our music has groove and hooks, while remaining true to our roots. Our goal is to take our music beyond the Bay Area to the U.S. and the rest of the world, with a powerful and dynamic live show – No lip-synching allowed!”

The band has earned a reputation as intense and maniacal live performers in the Bay area and throughout the Western Half of the U.S. playing with Exodus, Death Angel, High On Fire and Otep, among others. The band has played on big stages: In 2013, Mudface won the “Headbang To The Highway” Competition sponsored by Sumerian Records and played the Mayhem Festival @the Shoreline Amphitheatre with Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Amon Amarth, Mastodon, and Machine Head. The band has also performed on the U.S.S. Hornet and the legendary Queen Mary.
