Brain Oil
Brain Oil
Brainoil began playing live shows regularly again in the San Francisco Bay Area by 2009 and appeared with bands such as Ghoul, Cannabis Corpse, Eyehategod, Deviated Instinct, Buzzoven, Doom, Saviours, Lecherous Gaze, Rorschach and Dropdead. In August, 2011 Brainoil released their self-produced and recorded 2nd full-length LP Death of This Dry Deason through the 20 Buck Spin label. The release was covered in the press by the East Bay Express, Decibel Magazine and reviewed online extensively. A video for the song Gravity is a Relic was released shortly thereafter. The band posted an internet-only release of oddities and obscurities in September, 2011 Brainoil is touring the east coast of the United Stats with Lecherous Gaze in September–October, 2013.
Graves at Sea
Graves at Sea
Graves at Sea was formed in 2002 by friends Nick Phit and Nathan Misterek, with then members Roger Williams & Steve Klatz (RIP). After self-releasing the demo titled Documents of Grief, they toured extensively and were quickly noticed by Greg Anderson of Southern Lord/Sunn, who released their 7" Cirrohosis/Atavist Arise in 2004. Later in 2005 the band released a split with friends Asunder on Life is Abuse (cd) and 20 Buck Spin (vinyl).

In 2007 Graves at Sea went through a line up change when Nathan moved to Oakland and Nick moved to Portland, OR. After playing two final shows with Chiyo Nukaga (Noothgrush) on drums and Miguel Veliz (ex-Sourvein, The Roller) on bass, the band broke up in 2008.
In 2012, however, they decided to reunite with Chiyo on drums and Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil) on bass, but due to touring restraints, Chiyo and Greg decided to step down.

The current line up is Nick Phit (guitar), Nathan Misterek (vocals), Bryan Sours (drums, ex-Subarachnoid Space) and Jeff Mcgarity (bass, ex-Preta) making Graves at Sea once again a touring and recording band. In 2013 they recorded a split with Loss and a split with Sourvein, all with new material and have numerous tours planned far in to 2014.
Bell Witch
Bell Witch
Since their inception in 2010, Seattle based duo BELL WITCH have carved a unique niche in the metal scene. Utilizing only bass, drums, organ, and vocals to create a mournful, melodic take on minimalism and an ethereal but crushing approach to magnitude.
