Burden Of The Sky
Burden Of The Sky
Burden of the Sky is an American Alternative Metal/Rock band based out of Bloomington, Illinois. Influenced by bands such as Breaking Benjamin, Sevendust, and Chevelle; B.O.T.S. was formed by guitarist Josh Appel and Bradford Shaw. The lineup was completed in March of 2015 with the addition of Brian Barry (vocals), Rick Streeter (drums), Dustin Tritsch (bass) and Michael Mahoney (keyboards).

The debut album ‘Cinis Ad Cinis’ was produced, mixed and mastered by award winning Nashville Producer/Engineer Colt Capperrune of Dark River Studios. With an expected release date of early 2017, ‘Cinis Ad Cinis’ will introduce the world to Burden of the Sky. The first single, “Same Old Page” was originally released in April of 2016 to an overwhelming response and a demand for more music.
Maximus
Maximus
Maximus was formed in April of 2014 by accomplished songwriter/performer Blackie Starks (vocals and guitar) with an idea that good solid radio rock, reminiscent of the music he grew up listening to was seemingly being replaced with the same ole cookie cutter do it over and over assembly line music that lacked the life he remembered. Contacting friends in the industry he'd met during his career as a professional musician, he'd written some songs and had to find the right individuals to express his vision live. Rich Silman (guitar and vocals) a long time friend introduced him to Brandon Orton (bassist) to fill in some dates and the two eventually became permanent members of the band. Trying out several other musicians and not quite finding the right fit, they'd finally run across a long time friend of Blackie's Steven Lampley (guitar and vocals) who himself had recently become available from a former band and was searching for exactly what Maximus was offering. Like something out of Spinal Tap, the band went through drummer after drummer often playing with one for just one show before realizing they just weren't going to be a long term fit. Steven then introduced his nephew Mike Peters (drums) to the band and after one practice session, they knew instantly he was the right guy to round out the lineup.
Only a few months old, Maximus had already shared the stage with national touring acts, was headlining to large interactive crowds, and recording with national artists as guest musicians and was offered a recording contract with Atlanta based CBM Records under the guidance of Kimberly James. With one single already spinning on FM stations worldwide, and the second being released in the summer of 2015, Maximus offers an explosive live experience for fans everywhere. The band believes in doing everything over the top like the stadium bands of the eighties once did, hence the name Maximus.
Embers End
Embers End
If you are reading this we really appreciate it!
4-piece, fast paced, hard rock from the midwest. We have been working very hare since late 2015 to create something we would be proud to give to any potential fans. We are entirely self produced, meaning all recordings, be it audio or video, artwork, song writing etc. are all done "in house" so to speak.
Coming together as seasoned musicians we were able to get started writing immediately and within 3 months recorded and released our first single
"Dirty Little Lies" in 2/16. Trying to find a different way to promote ourselves in this ever expanding technological ethos, we are wanting to attract as many local fans as possible. What good does 10,000 page likes do if no one comes to shows? right?
Aterra Tale
Aterra Tale
Genre: Alternative Hard Rock
Similar to: The Used, Story of the Year, Black Sabbath

Aterra Tale is an original four-piece rock band based out of the southwestern Chicagoland suburbs. They have a diverse writing style and try to create something different and unique within each song. Their songs are meant to tell stories, some real and some fiction, and to paint pictures within the minds of their audience to bring those stories to life. This project started as nothing more than an outlet for a creative fix. The original intention was to be able to escape from other bands they play with and write some new music. The main idea was to be a “studio” recording group and to put out music at their will, but with the enthusiasm to play some shows here and there to support the tunes they put out. Aterra Tale just released their debut album, Of Fact and Fiction in 2012.
