About the bands:
OCEANO – Having relentlessly toured the globe since the release of 2010’s “Contagion”, Chicago’s reigning titans of technical death mark their long awaited return to The Glass House to blaze at the helm of this mammoth event.
VEKTOR – Sci fi themed and fueled with furious fervor all wrapped in a cutthroat progressive thrash primer, VEKTOR’s renowned live performances will leave all your senses frayed to say the least.
BONDED BY BLOOD – Pomona’s hometown thrash hero’s will be playing fresh off the heels of their new blistering opus “The Aftermath”. Be sure to check out their recent video for “Crawling in the Shadows” made with SCION A/V and directed by Dave Vorhes.
WHITE WIZZARD – Raw, good time, fist-raising trad metal from LA with grandiose lyrics and classic rock riffs all in a sound that pays homage to an era where metal was fueled by bombastic good times filled with excess.
When asked about how he felt to be a part of this epic event, David DiSanto of Vektor said, “We’re real stoked to be a part of this event. 25 years is longer than most of us have been on Earth! Congrats to Earache and thank you to Scion for all of the support for the show. See you sleazoids there!”.
Along with Vektor’s excitement, Pomona based Bonded by Blood also expressed their enthusiasm for this hometown rager. States Carlos Relgado: “We are excited to say that we are going to be a part of this year’s Earache showcase, along with Scion who have been super cool and have gone out of their way to support us and the scene. We just couldn’t be more grateful for them to put on shows like this – down the street from where we rehearse none the less! The Glass House in Pomona has always been one of the best known (yet also sort of unknown) places to play. In the past couple of years or so they have not been having very many metal shows. We are hoping to change that.
“We look forward to seeing a lot of friends and family and we can’t wait to share the stage once again with great friends such as Vektor and White Wizzard. Cheers!”
