Ayria
Ayria
Infectious and energetic music that combines elements of electro, industrial, ebm, dance, 80's, goth and pop.

Toronto based Jennifer Parkin is a performer, singer, songwriter, and the creator of electronic music project Ayria. Jennifer Parkin has become a bit of an icon in the underground electronic and industrial music scene with her unique writing, singing and performing style and music with an in-your-face sonic approach that combines electro, synth-pop, industrial, 80's dance, distorted gritty beats and synths, haunting melodies contrasted with angry distorted chanting all wrapped up with pop structures and catchy hooks.

Ayria has been intensively touring across the globe over the past 5 years gaining a very solid reputation for putting on energetic live performances with her keyboardist and electronic drummer in tow! A successful headlining 2011 Spring tour of both the U.S. West & North East this past April. And a full U.S. tour in 2010. Ayria has independently toured Jenn's home country of Canada, and then followed it up by touring the U.S.A and Europe opening for legendary band VNV Nation. Ayria has supported The Cruxshadows on two U.S. tours and a 2 month tour covering Europe & the UK just last year. Ayria has also performed in Japan, Russia and Mexico and played notable festival events such as Dragon*Con in Atlanta in 2009 and 2011, INFEST in the UK in 2010, KINETIK in 2009, as well as TRITON FESTIVAL in NYC in 2010. Ayria has also toured alongside bands: Combichrist, Project Pitchfork, and has played shows with Front Line Assembly and Front 242.

Not fitting into any one musical category has allowed Ayria to gain a very broad fan base of underground, goth, electro, industrial, dance, and various underground club scenes as well as appeal to more mainstream audiences. People have referred to Ayria as the darker version of Lady Gaga, or the industrial Madonna. Jenn grew up with strong and dramatic women like Madonna influencing her childhood musical tastes, but was always more a fan of the darker side of music and and fashion.

Next up, Jenn is currently finishing up a 4th CD titled "Plastic Makes Perfect" to be released in late 2012. Like the previous release "Hearts For Bullets", the new CD will also be produced in Canada by Sebastian R. Komor (ICON OF COIL, KOMOR KOMMANDO, MELT, ZOMBIE GIRL, etc.). Fans can once again expect a diverse release full of intense danceable and stompy electro songs, with dark melodies and lyrics full of self exploration but a further refined sound as Ayria pushes further ahead to once again create something unique and addictive.
nolongerhuman
nolongerhuman
nolongerhuman is the sole project of Clint Robertson. nolongerhuman has just released its second full length CD release, "Depersonalization"...
Focusing on the inhumanity in everyday life, the music is a direct response to everyday atrocities, with lyrics that are both political, personal, and sociological. Heavy distorted beats, screamed vocals, and incredibly aggressive keyboard work are brought together using found samples, movie samples, and real emotion. nolongerhuman is as much a diary of everyday life as it is an emotional experience. These aspects combine to create a punishing, thought-provoking act rarely found in any genre.
LEGION WITHIN
LEGION WITHIN
"[Eight] years and three albums into their career, Legion Within are a steadily rising force in the arena of modern music, complete with the KMFDM seal of approval."
~ ReGen Magazine.

Founded in 2000 by songwriter and vocalist William Wilson, Legion Within has weathered a few band-member changes. The line-up for Mouth of Madness, Wilson (vocals, guitar), Shannon Cole (guitars), Erica Butler-Branch (bass), Aaron Nicholes (percussion) and Jasyn Byrum (synth), is their strongest yet.

Wilson's romantic tenor vocals have been compared to David Bowie and Peter Murphy, while his minimalist and ebo-laden guitar style has drawn more consistent comparisons to Daniel Ash. Cole has been with Legion Within from its inception. His echoing "whale sounds" guitar style is evidence of his Pink Floyd and King Crimson influences. Long-time member Butler-Branch has been writing with Wilson for seven years. She's been performing music since five years old, is a multi-instrumentalist (including clarinet and drums) and has played bass in punk, goth and prog bands. Recent additions Nicholes and Byrum create a hard-hitting, electronic and industrial base on which to build. Their modern foundation supports the darkwave soundscapes that Wilson, Cole and Butler construct.

Legion Within have shared the stage with many great artists including KMFDM, Nitzer Ebb, Peter Murphy, Voltaire, and Collide.


Mouth of Madness:
Their first formal release thru KMFDM Records, Mouth of Madness displays Legion Within as a mature band who have blended darkwave and industrial into their own distinctive genre of dark rock.

Crafting Mouth of Madness over two years was an arduous process. Written throughout a time when band member's lives were rife with personal tragedy and upheaval, disquiet lays heavy within the music. The songs range from romance, escapism, and tragedy to tongue-in-cheek dark humor and flights of sadistic fancy.

Bouncing back from the industrial political-angst of 07's the empty men, Mouth of Madness embraces the current political and emotional climate with a firm hand. William Wilson calls it, "Courageous Nihilism. From day one we are all doomed. But that's just the way it is, we deal with it."
