Riksha
Riksha - "Banging Danger" Official Lyric Video!
Our 'Five Stages of Numb' album is OUT NOW via Zombie Shark Records | www.zombieshark.net | www.zombiesharkrecords.com

Salt Lake City's RIKSHA have released the official music video for the song 'Banging Danger' taken from their latest full length album 'Five Stages of Numb'. The video was produced by Cody Hess and is exclusively premiering at NuMetalMessiah.net at numetalmessiah.net/…/riksha-unleash-lyric-video-for…/
Riksha recently inked a worldwide deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new record label from Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter, Ex-The Browning). The band’s latest album ‘Five Stages Of Numb’ was recorded at Elevate Studios by notable producer and drummer for Chelsea Grin, Pablo Viveros. Album art was provided by Die Elster.

Riksha's ‘Five Stages of Numb’ album is available now at www.zombieshark.net and everywhere else digital music is sold.

'Banging Danger' is the fourth installment in a series of powerful and imaginative music videos released in support of Riksha's new album. The band released the official music video for ‘Skeleton Rain Dance’, which exclusively premiered at Tattoo.com, the video can be viewed here: www.tattoo.com/…/exclusive-music-video-premiere-skel…. The band also unveiled a computer animated music video for the title-track ‘Five Stages of Numb’ produced by Vladyslav Tsarenko which can be viewed here: youtu.be/g3Vyz8OkTEE. In addition, the official music video for ‘Shovel It’ can be viewed here: youtu.be/LV3d_G_Wdv4

Riksha’s sound is affectionately known as “throg”, a mixture of “thrash” and “progressive”. The band can best be compared to groove metal and nu metal bands such as Mudvayne, Tool, Pantera, A Perfect Circle, Soulfly, Nothingface, and Coal Chamber.

Riksha have released 2 previous studio albums recorded by Bruce Kirby at Boho Digitalia Studios - ‘Dream Drops Red’ released through Dark Harvest Records and the independently released ‘Night Begins’. Riksha burned up the underground metal scene in 2012, winning Project Independent’s “Industry Panel Favorite” voted on by a panel of producers, A&R reps, and record company owners. Since then, the band has purchased a 1973 Eagle Tour Bus and has hit the road throughout the US. Riksha is currently making plans to tour the U.S. in support of their upcoming release.

Zombie Shark Records label manager Michael Boodagh states, “Riksha is a growing artist that is continually perfecting their craft. I am pleased to welcome them to the ZSR team! I can't wait to see what comes next!”

Riksha takes four guys and squeezes out as much sound and energy as possible. With a combination of both melodic and in your face vocal and guitar styles, Riksha hammers away with a musical montage of aggression, power, and strength to create a new and bold sound.

RIKSHA IS:
Palmer/Vox
Kevin Bronson/Bass
Max Dail/Drums
Ian Law/Guitar

‘Five Stages of Numb’ tracklist:
1 - Departure Eminent
2 - Five Stages of Numb

Alternative metal outfit NoSelf from Central Florida have released the official music video for the track, “Casting Stones”, directed by Chuck Burns. For fans of Nothing More, Cane Hill, Islander, My Ticket Home, Spineshank, 36 Crazyfists, Nothingface, Adema, DED, Korn.

The video can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=55iCOXttgnM

The band released the following statement, “We are pleased to announce the release of our newest music video for “Casting Stones”. Capturing our energetic live performance is always a top priority, so we chose to shoot this music video at one of the biggest local events in Central Florida; Central Florida Metal Fest at The Haven Lounge!”

“We are lucky and excited to have had the chance to work with Chuck Burns at C. Burns Productions. He did a great job of capturing every pivotal moment of our performance. Overall we are excited to get more content out there for all the fans of NoSelf, Zombie Shark Records, and nu metal as a whole.”

The latest single “Casting Stones” is taken from their debut album, ‘Human-Cyborg Relations: Episode 1’, recorded by Matt Johnson at Revelation Studios. The band is putting a modern twist on the nu metal genre, similar to bands like Cane Hill, DED, My Ticket Home, and Issues. The group is heavily influenced by bands like Deftones, Spineshank, Adema, Nothingface, and Korn.

NoSelf recently inked a worldwide distribution deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new record label from Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter, The Browning). Robertson commented on the signing, “NoSelf are poised to be the next big thing in mainstream rock. This band is going to take the Zombie Shark Records label and the nu metal genre to a whole new level. Simply put. The gloves are off.”

NoSelf also recently released a music video for the track “Frisco” directed by Travis Cecil from SFN Productions, which can be viewed here: youtu.be/no6WBRCLno8

NoSelf comments, “Our previous video for “Frisco” has been very well received, but it is lighter than the rest of the material on our album. It was important to showcase our nu metal roots this time around, so “Casting Stones” was the obvious choice.

‘Human-Cyborg Relations: Episode 1’ is available everywhere digital music is sold and at www.zombieshark.net

Billy Blair from our very own JUNK joins the cast on Rob Zombie's new film 3 FROM HELL #thedevilsrejects #robzombie #horror

Actor Billy Blair has officially been added to the cast of Rob Zombie's upcoming horror flick 3 FROM HELL. Billy made his way to Los Angeles earlier this week, where shooting of the film is well underway. 3 FROM HELL is a follow-up to Zombie's The Devil’s Rejects (2005), a sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses (2003) that followed the murderous, backwoods Firefly family as they hit the road in an attempt to escape a vengeful police force.

Dallas, Texas rock trio JUNK, fronted by Blair, unleashed their new EP entitled ‘Double Soundtrack’ on Friday, January 5th, 2018. Junk recently inked a worldwide deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new record label from Noah "Shark" Robertson (Motograter, The Browning).

JUNK is fronted by guitarist and vocalist, Billy Blair (Surgeon General, Mother Truckin Skull Diggers, Earshot, Love Stricken Demise) who is also a prolific actor and has appeared in such films as Machete, Machete Kills, The Last Stand, Jonah Hex, and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Blair recently landed a role in Alita: Battle Angel, an upcoming American science fiction action film based on Yukito Kishiro's Battle Angel Alita manga, set to be released on July 20, 2018.

The three-piece is rounded out by bassist and vocalist, Benjamin K. Bachman (Never Mind The Darkness, Zativah Kid), who has also produced various solo albums and material for film, and drummer Brian “Boog Nasty” (July Alley, Shadow Reichenstein).

Blair states, "We are beyond pleased to be a part of a label that believes in its bands and has our backs.. and that label is Zombie Shark Records! Horror movies and rock n roll in a gift bag!"

The band takes influence from a wide range of artists such as Billy Idol, SOUNDGARDEN, Danzig, INXS, Doobie Brothers, and Alice In Chains and has shared the stage with bands such as Skid Row, Dokken, Faster Pussycat, and Steel Panther.

The band recently recorded two songs, "Like Lightning" and "Built to Last", produced by Grammy Award winner Tre Nagella at Luminous Sound Studios in Dallas, TX. Both tracks are featured on the soundtrack to the film BLOOD SOMBRERO, starring Billy Blair.

The band's latest singles, "Pop Rock Genocide" and “The Sasquatch”, were recorded and produced at Soundhaven Studios in Rockwall, TX by Jason Schauer and mixed by Travis Wyrick (P.O.D.,10 Years, Shinedown). The songs will be featured in the upcoming horror/comedy movie, CHEROKEE CREEK.

As we continue celebrating the history of Zombie Shark Records, we take a look at the label’s first unofficial release, which came in the form of a compilation album entitled Masked Metal Mayhem which features masked and painted bands and is available for free download at:

www.zombieshark.net

Released - August 12, 2016

From the original press release:

Robertson states, “I’ve always wanted to put something like this together. I’ve always been a huge fan of bands like Kiss, Gwar, Slipknot, Mushroomhead,Mudvayne, and Motograter. Bands with a unique image. I’m also a huge fan of bands like Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Marilyn Manson, and American Head Charge. A lot of industrial bands have such a great look. I love it! Something about the masks and the paint and the theatrics, it just really draws me in. I saw Moto on Ozzfest 2003 and my mind was blown. The first real tour I ever went on was playing drums for the masked band Pinhed; opening up for Mushroomhead every night. I feel like it’s just something I was destined to do… be involved with this sort of thing. One of my biggest inspirations for all this is Steve Richards, the founder of No Name Recordings and No Name Worldwide. He managed both Slipknot and Mudvayne during their formative years and he also helped bands like Hatebreed, American Head Charge, Sworn Enemy, Motograter, and Mudvayne get their starts in the music business. He tragically died of brain cancer in 2004. He really inspired me to want to break bands. That’s why I created oNe maN Worldwide and Zombie Shark Records; to promote these amazing bands and to pay tribute to Steve. I think we are building something pretty cool here.”

Robertson has partnered with artist Wolf Krusemark, the creator of the Zombie Shark Records logo. Krusemark is known for his cartoon, comic book, and horror art creations which can be viewed at www.wolfkrusemark.com. The label will focus on shock rock, alternative metal, industrial metal, nu metal, and hard rock.

Tracklist:

Motograter – “Wrong”
Anti-Clone – “Astaroth”
Blue Felix – “In The Mirror”
Amerakin Overdose – “I, Alone”
Underlined – “Because You Were Home”
Darkc3ll – “The Un-United”

Today we pay homage to the band that started it all - Keychain from Canada. This is the band, song, and video that Zombie Shark Records launched with and helped begin the nu metal resurrection! Show them some love! <3

The Rift added to Final Warped Tour lineup!

Los Angeles based rock trio, The Rift, have been confirmed on 2 dates of the final run of Warped Tour. The dates are Cincinnati, Ohio on July 19th at Riverbend Music Center and Noblesville, Indiana on July 24th of 2018 at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.

Vocalist and guitarist Aris Anagnos states, "It's official! We've been added to the epic final round of Vans Warped Tour! It's been a dream of ours and now it's happening. Thanks to our fans for all the continued support!"

Zombie Shark Records recently announced the addition of The Rift from Los Angeles, California to the label roster. Earlier this month the band released a wildly entertaining music video for the track “Rock Narcotic” directed by Moshpit Media. The single was produced by Amit Ofir and Daniel Brecher. The group is making plans to record their next upcoming full-length in the coming months.

The official music video for “Rock Narcotic” can be viewed here: youtu.be/ZkYyjiFBwWk

The band is reminiscent of artists such as Muse, Highly Suspect, System of a Down, 311, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Keys, and Nothing More.

The Rift has released the following statement, regarding the signing, "This is another step forward in our careers and we can't wait to see what the future holds for us and our fans with Zombie Shark Records. It's incredibly exciting for us to be apart of the Zombie Shark family, we're going to make some big things happen."

The Rift is:

Aris Anagnos - Guitars and Vocals
John Anagnos - Bass
Ovais Malik - Drums

The Rift are a hard rock trio based out of Los Angeles with an edgy, driving twist on rock music. Traditionally, a rift is an open space. It’s a place of possibility and promise. Los Angeles hard rock trio THE RIFT lives up to its moniker.

Bassist John Anagnos remarks, “The name is the best way to describe the band, what we do, and the experience we portray live. The songs are meant to be an opening, and there’s a lot you can find within them.”

That openness has solidified the group - brothers Aris and John Anagnos, along with Ovais Malik [drums] - as one of Southern California’s most thrilling new rock upstarts. Since forming in 2009, the musicians have played alongside the likes of Exodus, Yngwie Malmsteen, The Misfits, and many more; as well as receiving nominations at the Hollywood Music Awards and Ventura County Music Awards. 2016’s full-length debut ‘Inventions’ crystallizes their one-two punch of technically intricate instrumentation and hypnotic hard rook hooks; evocative of Thirty Seconds To Mars, Stone Temple Pilots and Foo Fighters.

“We wanted to make songs that hit hard, but you can sing along to at the same time,” adds Aris. “Sometimes, we go bluesy-rock and other times there are tinges of punk/metal. We explore different styles while keeping a solid, real sound.”

Punctuated by longtime friend Ovais’s impenetrable percussion, it’s the familial bond between the brothers that brings another dimension to THE RIFT. “Being family helps with the collaborative process,” adds John. “We tend to think along the same lines. There’s a certain magic to it. If I was playing with anybody else, it wouldn’t necessarily be there. We’ve got something special.”

“We hope people can relate the songs,” concludes Aris. John leaves off, “I want listeners to escape from their reality for a little while. We want them to connect on a deep level, so they have something inspiring to fall into.”

The band will be performing a private VIP label showcase for Zombie Shark Records at Unfriendly Studios in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, March 3rd with label mates Dirty Machine (CA), Riksha (UT) and JUNK (TX).
