The Number Twelve Looks Like You
The Number Twelve Looks Like You
Adopting their intrigue-piquing name from a “particularly dark, dystopian 1964 episode of The Twilight Zone”, The Number Twelve Looks Like You captivated audiences with their eclectic blend of grindcore, progressive metal, hardcore punk and jazz. Forming in 2001, the New Jersey-based genre pioneers carved their own lane the release of their debut EP, Put on Your Rosy Red Glasses, in March 2003. The concept record, which explored the fictionalized mind of a real-life serial killer, was enthusiastically received by fans and caught the attention of Eyeball Records, who signed the band and reissued the EP in 2006.
Over the years TNTLLY toured extensively, bringing their complex musicality to devoted fan base around the world. The band went through a handful of lineup changes and musical evolutions. Each subsequent project reflected their growth, An Inch of Gold for an Inch of Time EP (2006), Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear (2005), and Mongrel (2007). The band announced their indefinite hiatus just after the release of their 2009 full-length record, Worse Than Alone (2009). Since then the members have scattered and explored other projects and interests. They ended their hiatus in May of 2016 with a secret show in Kingston, NY, where “Nearly 200 folks packed the room for the show, which was announced only the day before, coming from as far away as Alabama and Detroit” (Metal Sucks).
God Mother
God Mother
Aggressive, energetic fast-paced hardcore seasoned with deathmetal, sludge and tasty breakdowns.

A four-piece powerhouse, from the depths of the Swedish hardcore underground, ‘God Mother’ has been a rising force since its inception in 2012.

God Mother's debut, Maktbehov, was easily one of Metal’s most exciting new releases in 2015, making many of the year’s top lists including Loudwire, Blunt Mag, Metal Injection, and was hailed by Pitchfork as "an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct.”

Across 14 tracks, God Mother’s Party Smasher Inc. debut, “Vilseledd,” out October 20th, 2017, packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society's ignorance, in both Swedish and English.

God Mother has so far toured South Africa and Central America each once, and Europe three times. The band has toured extensively with acts such as Cult Leader, The Number 12 Looks Like You and The Dillinger Escape Plan. In the summer of 2017 God Mother played the prestigious international metal festival, Brutal Assault.
Pound is an experimental music project from Seattle, WA that combines elements of grindcore, mathcore, d-beat and sludge metal.
