Morgue City (Houston, TX)
Morgue City is a band that has gone through many many changes in sound and personnel. Like any successful project in the entertainment world it must be made up of resilient and determined people. This is the case with Morgue City. The band that has a rock attack intensity as well as a more sinister edge as it delves into the darker realms of noiz and it’s concurrent drones. Some of the Morgue City sound is very pop rock oriented but there is always a deviant grind of sound laced in the song work. The band consists of two musicians with a very long history in the music business. Founder, SPIKE the Percussionist, is known from a long list of projects that include Astrogenic Hallucinauting, Childman, Doggebi, Delicate Terror and as the music director for the world renowned flesh suspension group Constructs of Ritual Evolution – CoRE. The lead guitar and vocals are handled by Raul who is a multi instrumentalist and has a long history of studio work and touring. Raul hails from such bands as M-87 and was the former bass player for Bozo Porno Circus. The result is a musical conglomeration both hauntingly familiar and refreshingly new as well as powerful and beautifully dark. Combine the likes of everything from classical to jazz and gloom to power noiz with catchy lyrics, sophisticated beats, and musically diverse melodies and the result is Morgue City.

After Party (Houston, TX)
Formed in 2008 as a side project for Ralf Armin (Dead Roses, Pain Teens, Culturcide, Truth Decay, Bride of Pinbot, Swarm of Angels, Really Red) and Kirston (Apocalypse Forecast), After Party is the band that always brings the party and closes the house. After Party will play anytime and anywhere that there has been a party, or will bring the party if one is needed.
FYI, that track is the first recording from last year and was recorded with the internal mic on Ralf’s little tape player. It’s supposed to sound that bad and we haven’t recorded anything since then. Should have something up by the middle of June. Might even use a superior format, but haven’t decided yet.
