Graveshadow is a 2016 "Sammie" award-winning (Sacramento News & Review) symphonic metal band from Sacramento, CA. Graveshadow was originally conceived in the winter of 2012 by rhythm guitarist, William Walker. The line-up features Walker along with vocalist Heather Michele, lead guitarist Aaron Robitsch, drummer Roman Anderson, and bassist Ben Armstrong.
The Graveshadow sound is defined by crushing guitars, beautiful keyboard melodies, thundering bass, and earth shattering drums. Powerful operatic vocals shift into unearthly growls to create a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listener is sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart.
In the winter of 2014, the band signed with Jeff Keller (now with The Artery Foundation) for management representation after releasing their debut EP and opening for thrash legends, Flotsam and Jetsam (whom Keller manages). Shortly after this, the band began work on a full length album. Emil "Nightmare" Nodtveidt from the Swedish industrial metal band Deathstars (Nuclear Blast Records) was brought in to mix and master the recordings that were produced by Matt "Hazmatt" Thomas. Adding to this, powerhouse vocalist, Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear (Frontiers Records), was brought in to sing guest vocals on the Doctor Who inspired song "Blink".
The band is poised and ready to leave a lasting impact within the metal community. With an electrifying stage show and a sound as large as the Dragons of Westeros, they are as talented as they are unforgettable.

Once upon a time, CKY burned it all down, with a raucous, anarchic, hard rock sound soaked in the skate-punk culture that birthed them and a hard-partying lifestyle onstage and off that decimated relationships and reputations in its wake. Now, CKY rises from the ashes of the aftermath with The Phoenix, a bold mission statement that hoists the flag high for big, raw, authentic, earth shaking rock n' roll, liberated from useless pretense.
CKY's sonic rebirth sounds as incendiary, expansive, and groovy as the Joshua Tree desert where it was made, and as decadent and funky as the strip-club adjacent rehearsal room where the songs were jammed out into submission. Each song is a forceful meditation on what makes CKY so killer.

"the legendary Austin cowpunk combo may be older and wiser--but they still don't give a fuck." -- Greg Beets, Blurt "This long-promised long player from the Hickoids has taken on a kind of mythical quality over the last quarter century or so. Hairy Chafin' Ape Suit delivers on every broken promise -- going down like a throat-scalding shooter of garage-rock attitude, Tex-Mex boogie groove and lysergic delirium." -- Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews "a gut-busting jambalaya of southern styles" -- Kevin Allen, Elmore Magazine "The Hickoids songwriting mojo and freaky outlook on life still boil." -- Michael Toland, The Big Takeover Magazine "Don't let the fact that they beat out the likes of Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel and Jerry Jeff Walker for the best country band at the Austin Music Awards throw you; they are more than country, more than punk rock and more than psychedelic they are the Hickoids!" -- Todd Bugs, Rod & Kulture Magazine "Have they lost the plot in their maturing years? Well, with a forthcoming new album titled 'Hairy Chafin' Ape Suit', don't expect these nutball cudpunks to start acting their age anytime soon." -- John Graham, San Francisco Weekly "The Hickoids are to country music what a stick of dynamite is to firecrackers. Back in the days when no one had to worry much about keeping Austin weird, the Hickoids were doing their best to make it the weirdest place in Texas, if not on earth." -- WM Smith, Houston Press "The irreverent, but still relevant, Hickoids slammed together punk and country long before it became cool, or safe." -- Jim Beal, Jr., San Antonio Express-News "How do the Hickoids manage to keep their cache intact? Neither Smith nor his longtime foil Davy Jones spin the bottle or otherwise fuel themselves, and aren't they supposed to flag after all this time? Nyet.They sound as big and badass as ever..." -- Margaret Moser, Austin Chronicle "This CD is pure hard driving kick ass punk rock done Texas style.. This CD is old school at it's best..." -- Ginger Coyote, Punk Globe "Apart from maybe the Groovy Rednecks or Hank III, there aren't any country-rock performers around these days who live it up recklessly and raucously with the same boozy, profane attitude and hell-raisin' abandon as the Hickoids." -- Falling James, LA WEEKLY
