Sunday night in San Francisco was an awesome one. While many were watching the SF Giants shut out the Kansas City Royals in game 5 of the World Series, we were excited to be at the Termintour at the Above DNA Lounge. We were blown away by The Rabid Whole and you can read more about them here.  But the magic of the music didn’t end there, Cyanotic came out and completely dominated the DNA as they unleashed their angry robot noises to the crowd. It was fierce and their style of music can be described as part electronic rock blended with punk angst vocals and sprinkled with aggressive metal. Just the right recipe to create the most intense music that will satisfy your need for ear porn! Cyanotic still stands to be one of the most innovative bands to blend genres together and form their own signature sound. Their music have inspired so many to follow suit and create their own fusion of music.

The powerful vocals of Sean have the right balance of punk angst and an air of rage that just seizes you and captures your full attention. Chris comes out and is amazing on stage, it is as if he is possessed by the guitar gods! He is completely “in the zone” as his blazing out riffs and stomping on stage, he can stop you dead in your tracks with his eyes! Jordan is the electronic genius as he is holding everything together with synths and samples while still displaying an energetic stage presence. Cyanotic is definitely part man/part machine and you too must hear their angry robot noises. Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:

Cyanotic is:

  • Sean Payne: Vocals, Samples, Drums
  • Chris Hryniewieck: Guitars
  • Jordan Davis: Synths, Samples, Drums

Industrial electronic rocker Blue Eyed Christ released a lyric video earlier this week for their cover of Gary Glitter and later Joan Jett song, Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah). Check it out here:

Blue Eyed Christ is the project of mixer/producer/engineer, John D. Norten who explains about the cover, “I’ve always been a big fan of Joan Jett. I love the mix of raw energy and sexual tension in her version of “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)”. I actually didn’t even know it was originally a Gary Glitter song until after I recorded my version. Mine is much more true to the Joan Jett version but modernized with big drums, huge guitars, heavy synths, and a dose of noise to give it the Blue Eyed Christ sound.

Blue Eyed Christ was first started by John as a teen in 1991. He then released a couple albums but it has been 12 years since his last release of American Whore. The new album, A Rush and a Thrill, is a whirlwind ride straight into the psyche of John D. Norten and the world of Blue Eyed Christ.

Long before the popularity of Twilight or True Blood, there were the Vampire classics like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Bela Lugosi and my personal favorite, The Lost Boys. It is from these classics that Michael Vampire of  Vampires Everywhere!  drew on these influences and became inspired.  Their sound is a blend of industrial metal/rock and is currently described as shock rock. I have recently been listening to their latest CD, “Hellbound and Heartless” and with high energy songs like  ‘Drug of Choice” or “Star of 666” you can easily get hooked.  A couple of my other earlier favorites are “Undead Heart” and “Immortal Love”, and have a great industrial/alternative rock sound to them. You can really hear their influence of Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie but with a more updated edgier sound to it that I thing makes them stand out. Time to let your dark side out to come and play.

Vampires Everywhere! recently headlined at the world famous Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip earlier this week. Frontman Michael Vampire, Chris Christ and  DJ Black on guitar, Miles Rogers on bass and JJ Gun on drums put on quite a show.  Sadly we were unable to personally attend but we did get some great photos by Linda Emord of Eye Shutter 4 U that you can take a look at in our slide show.  Linda said it was a great show with great stage presence and she loved the music. She had never heard of them before but is now a new fan!   If you take a listen to Vampires Everywhere! you too will instantly become a new fan!

The Whisky had a packed house that night. Everyone came out for this show including fellow Los Angeles musicians.  Justin Emord, bassist from Love and a .38 was at the show and had this to say:

“Vampires Everywhere put on a solid show. Michael is a great frontman and had awesome command over the audience. The lead guitarist had some major metal chops and was not afraid to show the crowd his skills. The drummer all night was a blast to watch as he added flash and flare to the show by spinning and throwing his sticks and made it clear to everyone how much fun he was having. That kind of energy and enthusiasm is quite contagious and is always a joy to see expressed on stage.” 

That just describes a show that we need to get out and enjoy.  Michael Vampire is currently working on writing for their new record but they will be playing  on August 10th for the 15th Anniversary party of Bar Sinister in Hollywood. This show will sell out so make sure to get your tickets early!  We don’t want to miss this one so get your tickets and come join us for the party, it is time for Vampires Everywhere!

~ Enjoy, Marisol
