Mindscar
MINDSCAR is the extreme metal band from Orlando, Florida formed by Richie Brown(vocals/guitar) and Mike Radford(drums) in 1998. By 2001, MINDSCAR made a powerful impact performing hundreds of successful gigs, performing on television, and receiving international airplay and publicity. Coined by metal press as 'Matt Heafy's old black metal band', MINDSCAR featured Matt Heafy of Trivium on guitar and backup vocals in 2002. After getting held back from the first major tour in 2002 due to parental guardian issues and the band being legally under age, everything fell to pieces for an entire decade.

In 2012, Richie Brown and Mike Radford reunited in the studio to record 'Thornz Ov Ill Lechery' and 'Blind Masses'. Soon after, the core of the band made a pact to completely resurrect MINDSCAR. March 2013 marks the live debut of the new line-up, which features Jacob Belkerdid(bass/vocals) and Erich Geuter(guitar), alongside Massacre in Tampa, Florida. With potent new material and the most powerful line-up to date, MINDSCAR intend on releasing the first official full-length album and performing internationally.
Burning Fair Verona
"In fair Verona, where we lay our scene..."

...so begins the prologue of a famous William Shakespeare play. This line can also be used to explain the history and mission of Burning Fair Verona, a Tampa Bay-based melodic deathcore band that is rising from the ashes of a once-thriving extreme music scene, and whose own prologue took place in 2009.

Over the course of two years, Burning Fair Verona have established themselves as a force in the Tampa Bay metal scene, constantly evolving their sound, lineup and live presentation. The quintet unapologetically ignore the trends popularized by the image-obsessed "scene" bands, merging ethereal melodies with epic metal riffs and devastating, razor-sharp breakdowns. This approach has earned the band a dedicated fanbase that is inspired not only by the power of the music, but the honesty with which it is forged. With a list of influences that span two decades and the sub-genres of groove, thrash, melodeath, djent and metalcore, there is virtually no territory on metal's vast sonic landscape that BFV is afraid to explore. The varied roster of acts that the group has shared the stage with, and their debut EP, DYNASTY, are testaments to their versatility.
