Sasquatch is a band. They tend to sip on influences from 70's metal, rock, and psychedelia. They dig Black Sabbath, Melvins, Soundgarden, Corrosion of Conformity, Mountain, and Grand Funk Railroad. Their songwriting approach is clear-cut; keep the focus on the hook.
The band was born in Philadelphia in 2000 and moved to Los Angeles in 2001 after Keith Gibbs (guitar, vox) joined up with Detroit natives Rick Ferrante (drums) and Clayton Charles (bass). Upon Clayton’s departure in 2007, the guys recruited Chicagoan Jason Casanova (Behold! The Monolith, Tummler) to join the fold. We arrive at 2016 and Sir Craig Riggs (Roadsaw, Kind, Antler) can also be found shellacking the kit while sipping Pinot Noir on select occassions.
The band’s music has been featured on a variety of movies, television shows, and video games including the reissue of Clerks, FX’s original hit series Sons of Anarchy, A&E's Dog The Bounty Hunter, Jersey Girl, CW’s The Supernatural, and MTV’s Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, and Rob and Big, NHL 2005, American Chopper, and Monster Garage.
After shaking some walls with not one, but two, closely packed studio albums (the self-titled debut and "II") on Small Stone Records in 2004 and ’06, the power trio went subterranean until 2010 before resurfacing with a new lineup and propulsive third opus, "III".
The band’s latest album “IV” debuted in late 2013 followed by extensive touring in Europe and the US over the course of 2014 and 2016. What fans hear is arguably the gents most mature, inspired and diverse song-set to date, chunked with both heartwarmingly familiar and totally unexpected compositional twists, even super-trippy moments – but all of it heavy on the heavy, as they say…always. Unprecedented attention was also devoted to spinning new yarns out of those evergreen rock and roll stories about love lost, hate found, relationships built and lives trashed, homes wrecked, etc.
In the fall of 2015, Cargo Records Germany released the complete Sasquatch back catalog on vinyl for the first time in Europe (I, II, and III). Look for the band to be gearing up for its fourth European tour in 2017 and placing the finishing touches on their follow-up to “IV”. All’s fair in Love and Doom.
Look for the band to be gearing up for extended US dates in the Spring of 2018 and its next European tour in the fall of 2018.
RAGE OF SAMEDI
is a Doom/Sludge/Metal band who exists since September 2012. Started as a project the founding members Sam D. Durango (guitars/backing vocals), Lou Cifer (vocals), Paul 'Hate' McKay (bass) and Ian O'Field (drums) found out really fast, that they want to do more out of it. Clearly influenced by ClassicDoom bands of the 70s and early 80s and also of Sludge of the 90s 'til modern Sludge they give their own DOOM a special touch.
!!!F***in' slow, f***in' evil, f***in' heavy!!!
That's what the band themselves describes their music at an interview.
They decided to record a demo to check out how their music reach people which was sold out really fast. Til' today they recorded their first album 'SIGN' by themselves which was mastered by Collin Jordan of 'Boiler Room Mastering' Chicago who also worked with EyeHateGod, Lord Dying, Ministry and on.
As the CD production was done and released 'DIY' in march 2014 they looked out for a label to help with the vinyl release. With 'Voodoo Chamber Records' and 'Buschlee Vinylaceton' they did that deal and 'SIGN' came out as a record in november 2014. The special gold edition was sold out at the pre-order and the band decided to do a tour in march 2015 which brings them to Germany, Switzerland and UK.
Before the CD release a fan did a cover on youtube of the song 'The Lord' which was also included on the demo with an impressing solo on. The band asked him to perform it with them on the release party. He did and the band asked him to join as full member, and found with Dixieking Böhme I. their 2nd guitarist who made the line up perfect.
Above time they got support shows with mighty bands like 'Karma To Burn'(US), 'Crowbar'(US), 'Dopethrone'(CAN), 'Opium Lord'(UK), 'King Heavy' (Chile), 'Iron Void' (UK) 'Lord Vicar' (SWE), 'Three Eyes Left' (It), 'Void Of Sleep' (It)
In case of the awesome flow in songwriting they released their EP 'A psychopath job is done...!' at Nov. 13th 2015.
Just a few days before the EP release Paul McKay left the band a bit surprisingly for all. Dissapointed of his decision the others thought and talked a lot what would happen now. Against their first thoughts that 'Rage Of Samedi' would be done if anyone of the original members would leave the band they decided to walk further on, cuz' they left to much blood, sweat and tears, smoke, drinks and beers in the past just to let it all loose in case of that one dumb decision of their former bass player. With Nick 'Scrios' Perkele they found not just an awesome musician, he also fits perfectly as him in his person to the band.
In this new line-up the band are near to start the recordings for the 2nd album now. VVK
