    I decided many people on here have a lot of bands not many people outside of their areas have heard of so I personally think now is the time we make a thread to post everyone's favorite local artists with suggestions as to favorite song/video and try and provide a link to a website, myspace or facebook page.

    Since I'm starting the thread I'll throw three local groups right away:
    first of all my long time friend we call Rico goes by Statik in the local hip hop world and has some tracks posted on his myspace at www.myspace.com/scandalous2323. My favorite song would have to be "Don't Ask Me Why" a song he did with his brother in law who got him started in rap. His new song "It's all in the message" is also pretty good. His songs are all edited and produced by his brother in law who runs the label Scandalous Entertainment. He recently stated he will be releasing all his tracks for free download until june 6th.

    Second is a metalcore band from Denver, Co. Going by End of Empires they're a very political band with a very charismatic vocalist in Atma and better yet again this band is formed by a bunch of guys who realize they're fans are people who are more of a family than strangers with all of them eager to sign cds, shirts, anything. They're all very down to earth despite having amazing talent and potential in the hardcore scene. You can find their music at: www.myspace.com/endofempires. My favorite song is probably October's Offering but they have great songs throughout their track list. I'd compare them somewhat to Killswitch Engage in style. A lot more guttaral vocals though.

    Third a band from Colorado Springs, Co. They are another hardcore band called Drive In Massacre and have released an album over a year ago that I can't stop listening to. If you like this type of music I highly suggest this band. They're song list is very deep with good music as well and I'm suprised they haven't been signed yet. You can find them at: www.myspace.com/driveinmassacre my favorite song being Was Is and Shall Be.

    Local Iowa band...went to HS with the bass player.

    12 Seconds of Silence on PureVolume.com

    Pretty decent metal band from what I've heard. Should have a album coming out soon, I believe they signed to a subsidiary of Roadrunner Records. Any band that makes it past bar level in Iowa must be doing something right...

    I'm highly disappointed. I thought there would be a ton of people on here with music to share. I was slightly excited to see some new bands from different areas. help spread exposure to a wide array of unheard of bands and what not. I guess only 3 people on here besides me are down for local music. sad!!

    we're trying to get my buddy enough exposure so he can actually release a solo album before the end of this year. I believe you can buy his track "It's all in the message" at reverbnation.com/scandalous2323 but I don't know if he set up that option yet.

    thanks man. spread the word please. like I said these tracks don't suit his style correctly. he needs a producer that's closer to his style to really compliment his words. We appreciate the love. Shooting for 3,000 plays by the end of June. ANY help would be awesome.
