We are very confident that these songs will turn some heads, lift some eyebrows and move some feet. Watch out, as you might be the next victim of the Dancefloor Assassin.”

(4 April – Las Vegas, NV) On April 21, 2012 the first Asylum Worldwide event will take place at Vamp’d in Las Vegas, NV featuring 80′s underground legends Ruthless, Las Vegas metal act Seventh Calling, Los Angeles’ Anger As Art and newcomers, Vile Child.

The concept of the Asylum Worldwide events is to provide high quality video entertainment featuring Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands from around the world. The goal is to provide music fans worldwide with content and quality they know they can trust, at an affordable price, right from the comfort of their own homes. These shows will feature the highest quality production available, and will be filmed on location throughout North America and abroad. The original concept came about after Steven Troy (aka 1psychotic) began doing an internet television show on called “Sally Rocks Vegas” in conjunction with Vegas Rocks! magazine, for whom he has been the staff writer over the past 6 years. After the success of that show, he teamed up with Seventh Calling’s Steve Handel, who was touring with Angels of Babylon ( a project that featured Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson and Kenny “Rhino” Earl of Manowar) That tour’s stop in Las Vegas was filmed and broadcast on to over 4 million viewers worldwide. Seeing the demand for these types of shows, the two formed Visual Music Entertainment, along with partners from The Mentoring Group, a Las Vegas based talent agency specializing in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands. The Asylum Worldwide will be a monthly or bi-monthly event that will feature up-and-coming new artists, as well as established acts that have new projects. In addition, the site will present music related shows, such as drum and guitar clinics, and will also provide fans with an opportunity to hear and purchase music from bands featured on the site, as well as provide feedback that will go directly to the artist.

Ruthless was formed in Orange County, CA in 1982 and quickly became one of the better known bands in the burgeoning LA metal scene at the time. Releasing their debut Ep (produced by Bill Metoyer) around the world through labels such as Iron Works (US), Banzai / PolyGram (Japan) and Axe Killer (Europe). The 5 song effort put the band on the map and set them up for their full length album, Discipline Of Steel in 1985. The band split in 1990 and reunited in 2008 touring as the support act for the legendary outfit UFO as well as playing Germany’s prestigious Keep It True Festival.

Seventh Calling is America’s premier traditional metal act. Formed in the 1990′s in the American Mid-West, the band released their debut album, Monuments in 2007 on the Dutch label, Melissa Records. Well received, the positive reviews the album garnered allowed the band to head out on a US tour and in 2009 relocate to Las Vegas, NV. Signing with Heaven and Hell Records the band released their next two efforts Prelude To Madness and Epidemic. After touring in support of the ‘Epidemic’ album over the next year and a half, the band returned to Las Vegas to begin work on their upcoming effort, tentatively titled War Cry, with founding members Steve Handel and Lance Lange, and returning drummer Shannon Frye, along with 1psychotic on guitar.

To say that Los Angeles metallers Anger As Art are veterans of the industry would be a gross understatement. Comprised of Steve Gaines (Abattoir, Bloodlust, etc), Angelo Espino (Hirax, Reverend), Rob Alaniz (Evildead, Abattoir, etc) and Daniel Oliverio (Abattoir) the quartet have amassed over half a century of time “down in the trenches” in their individual projects. Since their inception in 2004 Anger As Art have released three albums and are currently working on their fourth release, entitled Hubris, Inc.

Since their formation in 2008 Las Vegas metal band, Vile Child have performed at events such as the Las Vegas Marathon (sponsored by in 2010 and 2011. The band’s debut Ep will be self released in 2012.

The event will premier on April 27th at 12:01 a.m. American Pacific time (17:01 GMT) and will run on demand for 72 hours on

OSI: Fire Make Thunder Met With Critical Acclaim

Fire Make Thunder marks the fourth undertaking for the collaborative duo known as OSI. Formed in 2002 by Jim Matheos (Fates Warning, Arch/Matheos) and Kevin Moore (Chroma Key, former Dream Theater keyboardist), OSI is a long distance partnership, both musicians typically writing and recording alone and sending song ideas back and forth for further elaboration. Written and recorded throughout most of 2011, this latest release once again reflects the eclectic influences of both Matheos and Moore.


Fire Make Thunderis slated for a March 27th release via Metal Blade Records and so far the album has been heralded with exceptional reviews and critical acclaim:

Final overdubs as well as some additional writing/arranging was completed in July 2011 in Jamaica, Iowa, where the band mixed alongside engineer Matt Sepanic at Sound Farm Studio and Recording Environment.

SOMETHING UNTO NOTHING (S.U.N.) IN STUDIO Exclusive Shows Coming This Month


HOLLYWOOD (March 5, 2012) – Something Unto Nothing (S.U.N.), a name all together fresh and rooted in rock ‘n’ roll, is setting onto the music scene breaking the social traditions that have become the rock norm. Headed up by the whiskey soaked voice of Sass Jordan, a Canadian icon and Juno Award winner with music partner renown drummer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Briian Tichy known for his tours of duty with Billy Idol, Foreigner, Ozzy and currently Whitesnake, their self titled debut album hopes to smash through the anonymity and secure a place in the current rock landscape.

Sass Jordan has an innate talent capable of conveying powerful emotion through heart-stomping, primal, rock-and-roll singing. S.U.N’s debut album is explosive, crushing, real and soulful with its natural fusion of blues and rock. Jordan’s vocal intensity proves a perfect match for the high-energy guitar playing of Tichy and her band-mates that provide the unique music palette that is S.U.N.

Previously working together is what brought Jordan and Tichy together in collaboration of the new music. “I had played drums on Sass’s ‘RATS’ record” explains Tichy. “I knew she was one of the best rock singers going. So after many years, we reconnected and tried a bit of writing together”. Both felt that in order to write the best, trend-free music they could, they needed to get away. They chose the mountains of Canyon Country and in an old, deserted shack S.U.N. was born. “We didn’t realize where we going when we started out”, says Jordan. “As we continued the songwriting path from Burned to Mobile Again to Nomad and on … The whole thing started to take shape in the form of a 70′s odyssey, a time travel trajectory.”

Completing the band that drives this music home is Marty O’Brien (We Are The Fallen/Tommy Lee/ Static X/ Disturbed) on bass and Tommy Stewart on drums (Godsmack, Lo Pro, Everclear, Fuel).

S.U.N. will be playing their first ever live performance at the Viper Room in Hollywood this Tuesday night! S.U.N. is now finishing up mixes to their “Something Unto Nothing” record and looking for the best platform to release the music to their fans. Also coming up, be on the lookout for an extensive summer tour as well as international dates.
