Formed in 2008 by Parker Jameson, Spencer Weidner and Charlie Federici, the band self-released an EP in 2010 under the moniker MASSAKREN and played numerous shows across the US. A buzz about the band soon developed in the metal underground, and in tandem with signing to global powerhouse Century Media Records, they decided to change their name to STARKILL to mark the next chapter in their musical career.
While most of their peers were listening to and playing to the "core" US-based bands, the members of STARKILL spent their days cutting their chops to European metal-- and the band makes no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves. Inspired by the likes of early CHILDREN OF BODOM à la the now classic Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper, in addition to NIGHTWISH, AMON AMARTH and DRAGONFORCE, STARKILL aims to pay homage to these acts, while also putting their own spin on Euro-metal-- and their new album, Fires of Life, does just that.
Produced by the band's own Jameson and mastered by death metal legend, James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT, OBITUARY), the album's concept, both lyrically and musically, is overlain in medieval fantasy-themed battles, mythology, and destruction.Fires of Life's artwork, created by renowned metal artist, Joshua Belanger, captures this perfectly.
Stay tuned for more news about STARKILL and Fires of Life coming soon!

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…

Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It

Atlanta-based indie rock trio Mansell has released the official music video for their single "Ghost." The track comes for their latest record Mantra, an eight-song offering that landed in the iTunes Top 100 Alt Chart and led the band to a support slot with Butch Walker earlier this year.
The video was conceptualized by a friend of the band, John Gray. "We all feel like kin to one another, so the understanding and chemistry there on multiple levels was a comfort in letting another artist interpret your music emotionally the way John did," says vocalist Holden Fincher. "He essentially dove into the song for an extensive period, and analyzed it in depth. He would call or we’d be together and he would just say how many times he had really listened to that song to really breathe it in and know it, and we’d discuss every little thing about it. The emotional pulls of the song itself, as well as who we are as artists, and what the project ‘Mantra’ was to us were put …
