Malison
Malison
Malison is metal band from San Diego, California

Originated in 2014 after a chance encounter at SDSU between Mario Lovio former drummer Sebastian Vazquez, Malison has developed a solid following in the heavy metal community due to their campaign to revive the classic metal sound of clean vocals, honoring the raw sound and feel of the 1980s, with a contemporary edge for originality.
The galloping bass lines, clean vocals, and melodic harmony encompasses Malison’s vision for a new, unique sound.

The band released their self-titled debut album through Combat Records in 2018. Look for their tour dates, soon to be announced!
Monarch
Monarch
Formed in 2008 and hailing from the outskirts of Northern San Diego. Front man, Matt Smith's (Nihilist, Damcyan, Muffhues Studios) intricate, brutal guiater riffs compliments perfectly with Casey Trask's (Ratt Black, CAGE) melodic shredding solos and vice versa. Accompanied by Alex Pickards (CAGE) heavy, rapid bass and the insane thunderous, pounding drum rhythms of Adam West. Having proven their hard work and skill, playing shows with thrash metal legends: Death Angel, Exmortus, Warbringer, Vektor, and Brazil's Nervosa, making them San Diegos new thrash metal kings. Follow the rise of the Monarch as they Go Forth... and Slaughter! Reminding everyone that thrash is alive and thriving giving you reminiscent tastes of Slayer, Children of Bodom, and groove metal godfathers Pantera.
Nightshadow
Unleashing the rhythmic beasts with fast, aggressive and heavy melodic passion, Nightshadow brings unforgiving committed focus to epic power metal with the rich, powerful, dynamic force in the vocals of singer Brian Dell; thunderous, exhilarated energy of drummer Sean Woodman; dominating, double lead shredding magic in guitarists Nick Harrington and Danny Fang; rounding out with the crushing, methodical thumping of bassist Chris Bader laying a secure concrete foundation.

Originally formed in 2012 by guitarist Nick Harrington who then moved years later to San Diego to connect with his remaining band members, Nightshadow pounded the stage hard at their debut show in July 2016 and quickly developed a solid reputation with enthusiastic feedback and strong positive audience responses to their metal musical efforts fused with influences of Amon Amarth, King Diamond, Slayer, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Hammerfall, and Stratovarius.

With tight instrumentation blended with intense perfection of notes hit on point, Nightshadow further established themselves by sharing the stage with the best of San Diego’s local talent as well as opening for national acts including: Appice Brothers, The Iron Maidens, Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime, Marty Friedman, Hammerfall, Beastö Blancö, and Adrenaline Mob.

Nightshadow released their much-awaited 5-song EP in April 2017 and has plans to record their full album in 2018 entrusting their devoted fans with the perfect complete recipe to cause a riot at any given notice.
