Powerman 5000
POWERMAN 5000: 'Tonight the Stars Revolt' 20th Anniversary

The original incarnation of POWERMAN 5000 took shape in Boston Massachusetts, where the group racked up a multitude of local gigs and produced two independent CD releases, 1994's True Force and 95's The Blood Splat Rating System. An unrivaled work ethic and growing legion of fans helped secure the band's dominance in the Boston rock scene, as well as creating a must-have commodity for many major labels. 1997 was a big year for Spider and company; it saw them sign with DreamWorks Records, relocate to Los Angeles and release their major label debut, Mega!! Kung Fu Radio. A year of touring with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn and Ozzfest followed, giving them national exposure and further strengthening the bands fan base. Their follow up, 1999's Tonight The Stars Revolt!, featuring the hits "When Worlds Collide" and "Nobody's Real" went on to sell more than a million copies . "Tonight The Stars Revolt! changed everything." Spider recalls. "Suddenly we went from being this weird little underground band to having our faces on MTV and our songs played nationwide." On April 7, 2009, Powerman 5000 released a blog on their MySpace page stating that Anyone For Doomsday? has officially been re-released. The legal battle ended and the album was released under the SKG Music License. The album is available on iTunes as a digital download. On April 21st, the band released "V is for Vampire", the second single from their upcoming album, which is planned for a summer release.

David Allan Coe

A life-long renegade, singer/songwriter David Allan Coe was one of the most colorful and unpredictable characters in country music history. One of the pioneering artists of the outlaw country movement of the '70s, he didn't have many big hits -- only three of his singles hit the Top Ten -- but he was among the biggest cult figures in country music throughout his career. He was born September 6, 1939 in Akron, Ohio.

Holy Grail with Striker, Bewitcher, Black Thorn Halo, Runescarred

Like many of the legendary bands whose influences they wear on their tattered sleeves, the Los Angeles quintet HOLY GRAIL made an immediate impact when they exploded onto the metal scene in 2009. Here were five immortal men who fought to kill, armed with an infectious sound – a mix of classic heavy metal and modern sensibilities – sure to win over even the most jaded of cynics. As if on cue, metal media around the world swooned immediately. Metal Hammer UK nominated HOLY GRAIL for their "best new band" Golden Gods Award based solely on the two original tracks that appeared on their debut EP "Improper Burial", while the group was invited to perform at major worldwide events such as the Wacken:Open:Air (Germany) and Download Festival (UK) before their full-length debut was even finished being recorded. When their full-length debut "Crisis In Utopia" was finally released in late 2010, it was clear from the opening notes on that HOLY GRAIL's music is their silver bullet. The album reasserted the group's potential and earned the band a new round of critical acclaim, with Revolver Magazine naming the release one of 2010′s Top 20 albums. Hereafter, the group hit the road for a nearly two-year touring cycle during which guitarist Alex Lee (ex-BONDED BY BLOOD) joined the fold and the band performed alongside the likes of BLIND GUARDIAN, ELUVEITIE and DRAGONFORCE, among others. In addition, they further developed a burgeoning international fan base by touring Japan, Australia and the UK. If "Crisis In Utopia" hinted at what HOLY GRAIL could achieve, new album "Ride The Void" shouts it through a megaphone. Gone are sword-and-steel odes to Valhalla; in their place are morbid tales of serial killers. Indeed, producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) brought out a darker, hungrier side of the band than many have heard to date – yet musically, they're more exhilarating than ever: Witness the galloping riff of "Dark Passenger", the betcha-can't-play-this exuberance of the opening lick of "Too Decayed To Wait" or the unexpected triumphant and melodic solo in "The Great Artifice". Perhaps more importantly, the album sees HOLY GRAIL continue to expand the limits of their sound by incorporating classical guitar ("Wake Me When It's Over"), a cinematic, QUEEN-like vocal intro (the otherwise anthemic "Sleep of Virtue"), a trance-like guitar loop ("Silence The Scream") that cleverly belies the lyrical content it introduces, and a moody finale ("Rains of Sorrow") inspired by a family member's battle with cancer. Someone pretty might catch your attention, but only someone special can keep it. HOLY GRAIL could have easily written an album filled with lovable tales of mead-chugging knights-on-horseback, but instead, they pushed themselves further – and in the end, created an unforgettable collection of timeless metal anthems that not only validates the early praise they received, but creates an exciting question: Where will they go from here? For now, though, buckle up and enjoy the ride!

WILLIAM JASON MCMASTER - born 3/18/1965 in Corpus Christi, Texas Jason is a fan of all music. He found his way around the music world on his family's record collections, and seemed to grow towards Elton John, Kiss, Queen and any over the top styles. Certain things seemingly found their way into his personal collection of music. The birth of punk and early heavy metal was making its way into pop culture around the time Jason was a young teen, learning songs by lifting and dropping of the needle into the grooves of his fave records after school and weekends. Growing up with three brothers who all loved music, influences abound throughout the household. Jason started on his music career armed with his brothers 3/4 size acoustic guitar and a Kay brand bass guitar bought by mother and oldest brother. Playing early shows in backyards and veteran halls, he was only immulating his idols and what he loved about them on the records, as well as pictures in Circus and Hit Parader.
