Crimson Crux

Formed in the Winter of 2011, Crimson Crux is a Christian/Folk/Rock group from the High Desert of Southern CA, consisting of husband/wife duo Nathan Petty (founder/songwriter/acoustic guitars) & Tanya Petty (vocals) accompanied by Paul Martinez (lead guitars) & Daniel Flores (percussion). In May 2012, Crimson Crux entered into the studio with their longtime friend/engineer Eric Dorse from The Noize Lab to record their debut 17-track indie LP, "Through Divers Temptations". In May 2013, after months of labouring endlessly in the studio, Crimson Crux's debut indie LP "Through Divers Temptations" was pressed, released via CD Baby & distributed to their various online partners currently carrying the LP. Immediately after the album's release, the band embarked on two local tours that same year ("The Revival Tour 2013" & "Feed The Bears Tour 2013" ), followed by another studio session in February 2014 to re-record/re-release the single "Ye Serpent of Olde", followed up once again by extensive local touring via local community outreaches & venues such as the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds & the local "2014 HALO Festival" at Mavericks Stadium. In October of 2014, Crimson Crux entered into the studio once again to record their sophmore EP "Of The Times & Seasons" which was released late March 2015, followed by a music video for their first single "Not of the Night" off the new EP. Today, Crimson Crux is heavily involved with participating/performing in various local outreaches around the High Desert of Southern CA & still continues to be the music ministry of Nate & Tanya Petty with more music & lyrics that are yet to be written..

"Nagmah was formed by Jose P. Calvo and Jose Soto. Our band has kept the same basis since 2005 (Mónica Villanueva – voice and keyboards, Jose Soto – guitar, Jose P. Calvo – bass, Roy Ross - drums) with changes mainly in the second guitar.
            Along our path we have had the chance to participate in various national (Costa Rica) as well as international events: such as, the “Diablo Fest”, “Mujeres de Metal”, “Rock en el Farolito”, “Mutilation Metal Fest” (Nicaragua and Honduras), “Festival Rock sin Fronteras” (Panama). Moreover, we performed as the support band in Paul Di’Anno (2006), Dead Poets (2007), Arturo Huizar (2009), Billy Mata(2013) and Oliver Sean (2015) international concerts in Costa Rica.

            In 2009 we launched our first album “Diva Mortis” with nine original songs. That same year our song, “El Maleficio del Lindero” was included in a French compilation called “Another Story from Heaven” along with bands from different countries such as Brazil, France, Finland, Italy, Spain, etc.
Nagmah signed a record deal in February 2014 with W.O.A. International Records owned by MTV EMA nominee Oliver Sean. As part of this deal the band headlined the WOA 7th Annual Music Tour around India and Dubai and has released the second album Hada Perdida through all major digital music distributors."

Survival is a hardcore/metal band from Oakland, CA. The group began in 2009 with various local thrash musicians (Nick Noro one of them) being kicked out of their collective bands, hence the name. The group began with immediate conflict - members in and out of jail, abusing drugs and one ultimately overdosing. Until 2011, there was a revolving door of band members circling the songwriter, Nick Noro. In 2011, Noro found Mike Tappero (Drums), Roland Sayn (Guitar) and George Lallian (Bass). Survival independently released the debut record Love God (2012) followed by Unity (2013) and Shayda (2015), playing many shows throughout the Bay Area and southern California for several years. All official releases were produced at Castle Ultimate in Oakland, CA. The SURVIVAL sound is an an eclectic, guitar-driven combination of thrash and hardcore elements, with references to punk and doom as well. This lineup is still current. Noro has individually released countless demo recordings and EPs online under the Survival moniker as well.

Darkness Light

Darkness Light was founded in 2011 by Cristian Bettendorf. After the “distillation” of the initial ideas and basic setup, he started auditioning for band mates focusing on local musicians from Bayern / Germany.
By mid of 2011, Cristian asked Dixie Krauser (Pro Musica, Stepan Project, ex. Flying Wood, ex. Coald Sweat, ex. Transsylvania Phoenix, ex. Florian din Transilvania, ex. K.P.K.L.M. Blues Band ) to join the project and build up a melodic hard & heavy rock band in their hometown Augsburg / Germany.
At end of 2011 they jointly decided to stop auditioning for new band mates and focus on studio work for the debut album.
The 2012 was dedicated to the studio work but other individual contractual obligations from both Cristian and Dixie (who played several shows, sharing the stage with well-known musicians like Jack Bruce, Mats Eilertsen, to name only few…, search the news part from the Darkness Light blog for historical information’s) delayed heavily the release of the debut album. Cristian focused additionally to produce local rock bands and all together contributed to a delayed album release.
On top, the 2013 started with the sad news regarding Dixie severe illness which finally lead to put the full project on hold for two (2) years!
In this period of time Cristian played with local bands, performed live shows, shared the same stage with great musicians, including David Reece ( Ez Livin, ex. Accept, Tango Down), Ronnie Parkes (ex. Tango Down, Seven Witches), Paul Morris (ex. Rainbow), Hans Ziller (Bonfire).
End of 2014 after Dixie recovered form his severe illness, Darkness Light resumed the studio work at Open Eyes Dreams Studio and announced the album release for 2015.
The studio album "Living With The Danger" was released on 25th July.
