Upstate NY's Surmiser are a grunge, hard rock and post punk marriage who play every note with the conviction of lifers who have long since given up the notion of turning back. The band is an excellent power trio and have just released their buzzed about latest effort Hold The Static. Songs about depression, addiction and self assessment pair with focused but inspired soul eruptions that take you on a journey through a wide range of emotions. Surmiser are very much worth checking out, constantly working on ways to expand their impact and body of songs to mirror their experiences into something representative to their values in sonic form.

Boston based metalcore band Ice Nine Kills take their name from the ultimate weapon of mass destruction in the Kurt Vonnegut novel, “Cats Cradle.” Their new music video which was premiered today for the song “The People Under the Stairs” is inspired by another piece of art, Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 film, “Inglourious Basterds.” The song is off Ice Nine Kill’s “Safe Is Just A Shadow”, which debuted last year via Red Blue Records.

Show Review: Ice Nine Kills, No Bragging Rights, I AM HISTORY and 3 local bands on The Launch Tour- Bath, NY- 4.16.11
I arrived at Revolution Music in Bath, NY just after 3 on a very rainy afternoon. My expectations weren’t very high since I have only heard songs from three of the bands before. The melodic grind of guitars accompanied by rhythmic drumbeats sounding like thunder and deep metal growls filled the air inside a music store where about 150 people gathered for a night of metalcore. I was impressed as a mix of 4 touring bands and 3 local bands took the stage for 20-30 minute sets in support of Ice Nine Kills on The Launch Tour. I’m sure they could hear the music all the way to the police station about a block up the street.
