Sanhedrin
Brooklyn’s Sanhedrin scale boundaries and elude genre norms on their second studio album, The Poisoner. The band’s intoxicating blend of doom and classic metal is complemented by lyrics that delve into the darker elements of humanity and the cyclical nature of destructive ideas. Thought-provoking and inherently catchy at the same time, The Poisoner is indicative of a band unafraid to venture into unchartered territory.

Sanhedrin’s 2017 A Funeral for the World debut full-length was originally released independently, but reissued for broader release by Cruz Del Sur Music in 2018. The Poisoner picks up where its predecessor left off, with the Brooklyn trio (who consist of former Amber Asylum/Lost Goat bassist/vocalist Erica Stoltz, Black Anvil guitarist Jeremy Sosville and drummer Nathan Honor) parlaying their vast array of influences into eight gripping, instantaneously memorable numbers that rely melodic riff choices, the affecting vocals of Stoltz and touches of dark atmosphere. 

Recorded with producer Colin Marston at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves, the members of Sanhedrin cite Marston’s ability to pick up on the minute details of their sound as one of the reasons for their collaboration, which began on A Funeral for the World. According to Sanhedrin, Marston, who usually tackles some of extreme metal’s most unique and unrelenting acts, is on the same sonic wavelength as the band, capable of translating their musical vision without sacrificing the raw and natural elements of their sound. 

The Poisoner reflects the various sides of Sanhedrin, from classic, if not soaring jaunts, to tight, direct melds of gallop-oriented metal to doom-channeled motifs, most notably, the album’s title track, which features a guest appearance by Stoltz’s former Amber Asylum bandmate Kris Force on violin. This diversity is less of a jigsaw than it is the natural melding of various ideas and styles, taking Sanhedrin to new places on each song. On The Poisoner, Sanhedrin defies categorization, hereby entering into their own carved-out space where exploration and timeless songwriting are paramount.
Void Vator
Formed in December of 2014, Void Vator is a hard rock/heavy metal band based out of Los Angeles, CA. After years of turmoil, the band truly took form when founding members Lucas Kanopa (guitar/vocals) and ex-Gypsyhawk guitarist Erik Kluiber joined forces with Lucas's childhood friend German Moura on drums and Sam Harman on bass. Piecing together their debut EP, Dehumanized with Grammy nominated hard rock producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Deftones, Metalocalypse) and releasing on his WURMgroup label in July of 2017, the band had the world at their feet. 

Hitting the road hard and often after having teamed up with Hi Wattage Booking (Now a subsidiary of Tone Deaf Touring) in summer 2018 the band purchased their own van, driven by a desire for even more. By the end of the year they had toured four times in a twelve month period, starting to firmly establish their presence as scene newcomers who could go for the throat. Building their live approach on hard hitting rock and roll riffage rather than the stoned vibes of many of their peers, Void Vator have quickly developed a reputation as a take-no-prisoners live act. 

With hardly a moment to breathe, Void Vator recently dove back into the studio with world renowned producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, DRI, Bodycount) in North Hollywood to record a 6 song, soon to be self released EP entitled "Stranded". Eager to once more take to the wicked ways of the road, the "Skeleton Crew" tour will take Void Vator further than ever before, spanning a full month and reaching out to northeastern US cities including NYC, Boston, and New Haven. Determined to take the world by storm and driving to ever more twisted heights, Void Vator are balls out rock and roll and they are here to stay.
