John Wiese is a noise and experimental music artist. He is extremely prolific, releasing many albums both as a solo artist and as a member of groups such as Bastard Noise, Sissy Spacek, and LHD, and he frequently collaborates with other musicians, including Sunn O))), Wolf Eyes, Thurston Moore, Lasse Marhaug, and Merzbow.

Sickness started in the early days of 1986-1987 as a tape-loop/ industrial project. Now, so many years later, it has grown into the infestation you see before you. To further the destruction, Sickness formed its own label, Ninth Circle Music, and it has been around for over six years, releasing special limited edition tape only releases.

Heaven People are a New Haven based duo who destruct and reconstruct the environmental and artificial sounds and energy. They create pulsating spirit drones through modified acoustic guitar, electronics, vocals, samples, music boxes and thumb piano. They await their 1st LP on Ecstatic Peace! and plan to tour thereafter.

Horse the Band: Stumbling out of Los Angeles, CA, Horse the Band has been many people's favorite little secret since their inception in 2000. The godfathers of the sound already coined as "Nintendo-core", they've built a sizable worldwide fan base just by being creative and having a slightly demented sense of humor. Deconstructing hardcore and metal trademarks and soaking them with a sharp tongue and inventive keyboard leads, Horse the Band has risen to the forefront of eclectic and extreme hard rock music.

Heavy Heavy Low Low is Robbie Dalla, Danny Rankin, Chris Fritter, Andrew Fritter, and Matthew Caudle. They have a broad range of influences and create music that is both expressive and emotional, combining various elements of grind, hardcore, metal and late 90's 'screamo' with a slight dose of catchiness. From San Jose, CA.

So Many Dynamos meld pop with disco, punk and R&B ala The Dismemberment Plan/Cake. From St. Louis, Missouri.

Raised By Falcons is a Metal/Grind band from Fairfield, CT.
