Falling In Reverse
The fine line between genius and insanity, self-seriousness and self-deprecation, implosion and explosion: that is the phantom zone where FALLING IN REVERSE thrives. Falling In Reverse founder, front man, and Machiavellian heroic supervillain / villainous superhero Ronnie Radke is the walking, talking, breathing, spitting, screaming, singing, fighting, loving, hyper-confident, sensitive, and vulnerable embodiment of a generation’s id. He’s the ego and super-ego in the classic Freudian sense, “slipping” all over the place with vicious bite and playful innuendo. With his music, art, and life, he is the living embodiment of broken homes, the frustrated contradiction of self-destruction, and everyday single-minded defiance against a world gone mad. COMING HOME is his latest reinvention, coming full-circle back to the start, reinvigorated as mad scientist conductor of soaring, transcendent, engaging alternative pop-rock with massive radio hooks and a still-beating heavy metal hardcore heart. “Broken,” “Loser,” “Hanging On,” “I Don’t Mind,” and “Coming Home” are shocking in their epic scope, vibrant authenticity, and unrelenting dedication to personal truth.
ICE NINE KILLS
Like the undead slashers celebrated in their songs, ICE NINE KILLS, return with The Silver Scream 2: Welcome to Horrorwood, a sequel of gruesome movie-sized proportion to their No. 1 Billboard Hard Rock Album, The Silver Scream. Welcome to Horrorwood carves out a fresh, bloody homage to the VHS celluloid classics that possessed singer Spencer Chamas at an early age, with a devilish new twist.
ICE NINE KILLS make music both timeless and timely, mixing metal, hardcore, and punk, with accessible power. New hard-rock-and-horror anthems like "Hip to be Scared," "Assault & Batteries," "Take Your Pick," and "Farewell II Flesh" demonstrate Spencer's fascination with fright, pop culture obsession, and his expertise with inescapably wicked melodic hooks and clever twists of phrase. The album mixes the melodies, riffs, and wit that are the band's signature, as heard in the Top 10 Mainstream Rock single "A Grave Mistake" and Top 20 hit "Savages."
Loudwire hails ICE NINE KILLS as "one of the most unique acts in metal right now." The band's synergy of music and lifestyle draws favorable comparisons to Slipnot and Rob Zombie. Visionary trailblazers and multimedia racounteurs, INK built a thrilling world for a growing legion of devoted true believers, with theatrical shows, high-concept videos and inventive band-to-fan communion.
