Dirty Seeds (Houston, TX)
The Dirty Seeds are a Houston stoner rock band with a sound just as dirty, huge and heavy as the Houston air. Their music is characterized by dark, hypnotic grooves that pulse, pound, and carry you away to that special place where it is just you and the music.
Black Standard (Houston, TX)
The name “Black Standard” comes from a meaning that the five of us agreed upon. When a man is born, he is untainted. Over the course of his life he makes decisions that corrupt him, or those around him. This corruption can be compared to a flag becoming ripped, torn, and faded over time. In the flag’s inception it is pure and bright, after a few years of abuse and the trials of its life, it is not the same but it carries on; as does the life of a man.
Black Standard stands as a banner, or standard for all who wish to carry it. When a man walks down a road in a Slayer shirt, and sees a stranger wearing a Lamb of God shirt, these two men do not know each other yet there is a friendship adopted based on the garb the two men share in common. Metal horns are flashed, nods of approval are given, and smiles are shown. Black Standard is a representation of that respect among people.
The color black represents dark meaning, a trait often associated with metal bands and people who associate with the music. Black Standard stands to be proud of the color black and bring forth its radiance. We stand to show all in our path that musical taste and appearance doesn’t make a man who he is, it only defines his thoughts. Music doesn’t define a person, his actions and moral beliefs do.
The genre of Black Standard, if you had to give one, could be described as Melodic-Groove Metal. Some say that we created a new genre, we don’t necessarily agree with that. We just combined the styles of the music we all like to play, to us it’s just good music. We like what we play and try not to categorize it. There aren’t many bands (that we’ve found) who sound like us, but we don’t conclude that there aren’t any. If we find one, we’ll embrace them as brothers just as we do all bands we meet, because after all, every band is brothers and sisters in the family of the music industry. We all need to band together and reinforce the flanks of our allies to win this battlefront that we call life.
You cannot kill the metal….
