WINDS OF PLAGUE
WINDS OF PLAGUE
Winds of Plague was founded in 2002 in Upland, California. During the time of the band's inception, its name was originally "Bleak December". However, they changed their name in April of 2005, to "Winds of Plague". They released their demo A Cold Day In Hell in late 2005 independently. Several of the songs would subsequently be re-recorded for the following album.

Decimate the Weak, the band's first major label album, was released in 2008 through Century Media Records. The album included several re-recorded tracks from A Cold Day In Hell.

Winds of Plague's second release on a major label and third album overall, The Great Stone War, was released on August 11, 2009. The album features two singles, "Approach the Podium" and "Chest and Horns", though no music videos were ever shot for any songs on the album. On October 14, 2009, keyboardist Kristen Randall stated that she would be leaving the band and did so days afterward. The band approached musician Lisa Marx to fill in on keyboard for their Australian/New Zealand tour. Afterwards the band found Alana Potocnik who has since been inducted as Winds of Plague's keyboardist.

The third album, Against the World, was released in 2011. "Refined in the Fire" and "California" have been released as singles, and music videos for "Drop the Match", "California" and "Refined in the Fire" have also been released. The band also appeared on the soundtrack for the game Homefront performing a cover of the Buffalo Springfield song "For What It's Worth".

Winds of Plague's fourth studio album, Resistance, was recorded in mid-2013 with producer Will Putney (Miss May I, Stray From The Path) and was released October 29th via Century Media records. They have released a music video for the intro track 'Open The Gates of Hell', and a follow up sequel video for 'Say Hello To The Undertaker' both produced by director Shan Dan .

The Zenith Passage
The Zenith Passage
It was in early 2012 that a small recording collaboration between two friends (Justin McKinney and Greg Hampton) began to coalesce into something that would prove to be well more than the sum of its parts. The Zenith Passage may have come about from humble beginnings in a stuffy Los Angeles apartment, but the produce thereof is anything BUT humble. Even the earliest demo tracks delivered a relentless torrent of technical guitar work accompanied by a distinctly frenetic and brutal vocal delivery that has since become an unmistakable hallmark in a scene that is all too often the victim of stagnation. Far from being strictly a shredfest, TZP also incorporates a thematic backbone that draws inspiration from the chaotic and awesome destructive powers of our universe. Progressive interludes invoke a palpable sense of abstract dread and reverence for things beyond mortal comprehension. The atmosphere created clearly nods to inspiration drawn from legendary acts such as Deeds of Flesh, Soreption, Fallujah, Severed Savior, and Aeon.
Line-up:
Greg Hampton - Vocals
Justin McKinney - Guitars
Rob Maramonte - Guitars
Michael Hoskins - Bass Guitar
Luis Martinez - Drums

The project's initial offerings generated enough buzz in social media circles alone to convince the duo to redouble their efforts in earnest, and to begin seeking out members to complete their lineup. This proved no small task in a saturated market, but persistent scouting over to following months precipitated the addition of friend and drummer Josh Slater (Aethere) into the mix. The subsequent release of a proper EP in January 2013 (entitled "Cosmic Dissonance") catapulted TZP's recognition to previously unprecedented heights, greatly broadening their fanbase, and catching the attention and admiration of some of California's foremost metal musicians. Not long thereafter, it was announced that Rob Maramonte (ex-Fallujah) would also be stepping in to lend his talents and fill the role of second guitarist.
With the onset of all these new developments, and the lineup nearing completion, it seemed only natural to take the next step and join the ranks of those by whom they had been so heavily influenced. Thus, in the summer of 2013, TZP had the honor of signing on with Unique Leader Records for a multi-album deal. The stage is currently set for TZP to secure their foothold in topmost reaches of the metal pantheon, and they are hard at work churning out new content for their debut full-length. Rest assured, this marks only the beginning. The world has only just set foot onto the passage towards the pinnacle, the apex, the Xenith. BLEGH.
Entheos
Entheos
The Mirage Theory
The Mirage Theory
Beginning in February 2007, these six talented musicians got together to unite their progressive rock and hardcore metal influences into the mixture known today as The Mirage Theory. The band is composed of drummer Davier Perez, guitarists Cesar Adames and Giovanni Melendez, keyboardist Jon ViguiƩ, bassist Daniel Rodriguez and Jan Michael Vega on vocals. Since their inception, they have worked incessantly to expand their reach among crowds from almost every genre and style by letting their eclectic influences flow through their instruments, thus creating the type of heavy music that can reach beyond the mosh pit.

Aside from showcasing their talents locally for international acts such as August Burns Red and Job For A Cowboy, the boys from TMT have also taken their art stateside, playing highly-acclaimed shows across Florida and Georgia, and are in the process of relocating their base of operations to the continental United States.

In 2013, The Mirage Theory will independently release its first full-length release, titled "Origins". The first single, "Too Many Dreams", can already be heard through their first official music video. And if you haven't seen them live, stay up to date at facebook.com/themiragetheory to know when they will be playing near you. Thank you for for your support!
