The Acacia Strain
The Acacia Strain
The Acacia Strain is an American deathcore band from Chicopee, Massachusetts
Cruel Hand
Cruel Hand
Spawned in the lethargic backwoods of the pine tree state, Portland, Maine’s Cruel Hand play an eclectic blend of styles that embodies anything but the serenity of their surroundings. Formed in 2006, Cruel Hand’s sound is equal parts New York hardcore and west coast thrash, all with a twist of their own. With five years of heavy touring and three LPs under their belt, the new decade will see Cruel Hand continue to mature and live up to their hard earned road reputation. Their latest release, 2010’s “Lock and Key”, was their most refined to date and a sure sign that the 5-piece is only continuing to rise. With a freshly solidified lineup and indisputable live show, expect to see them in your corner of the world soon.

No Bragging Rights
No Bragging Rights
No Bragging Rights began to take its present shape in the summer of 2005. Since then, the 5 piece Metalcore band has self released 2 CD's (an EP and a full Length) which have collectively sold 8k+ copies World Wide.

When NBR began work on their first self released full length album, "Because You Believe…" the band was at a crossroads. Member changes and new ideas took them in a heavier, more hardcore oriented direction. The early 2006 release was well received in the local scene, and helped establish the band outside of their home town.

"The Anatomy of a Martyr" EP released in the summer of 2007, and catapulted NBR to the national stage. Relentless DIY touring grew the band exponentially and attracted the attention of Pure Noise Entertainment. The label re-released "The Anatomy of a Martyr" in 2008, and in the spring of 2009 debuted "The Consequence of Dreams" LP.
