Heartsick is regarded as one of the hardest working bands in the Midwest metal scene with a rapidly growing fan base all across the United States and thousands of diehard fans in the Midwest they are quickly becoming the band to look out for in 2015. Ever since they formed in Lansing, they have graduated from local hometown shows to a touring force to be reckoned with and participating on major festivals across the US playing over 1,500 shows since the band's start in 2000.

Heartsick has made their presence known the old fashioned way blood, sweat, and a work ethic matched by few in the industry. Treating every show as if it was their last and every fan as if it was their first. After years of touring and playing under the name Know Lyfe the band has evolved still keeping its core sound and member vocalist Alfonso Civile, guitarist Jerred Pruneau, drummer Nico Killips, and bassist Waylon Fox.

With a new name and a new highly anticipated follow up record to 2011 "Empire Of Wolves," Heartsick is poised to explode beyond the borders of the Midwest and has already begun a new legendary chapter in their already legendary career.
Kingdom Of Ends
Kingdom Of Ends
We like playing music and hanging out, just like you.
Past Tense
Past Tense
Formerly a thrash/power metal tribute band, Past Tense began forging a new path for themselves with the addition of veteran vocalist Shannon Strobel. Gone were covers by their metal heroes, replaced by original songs steeped in classic metal tradition with a modern edge.

Led by Strobel's blistering vocal delivery, Past Tense goes right for the nether regions with the thundering rhythm section of Matt Noe (drums) and Banzai Ryan (BASS!). Rounding out the aural assault are Stony Garza and Rich Bates on guitar, whose melodic interplay evoke comparisons to powerhouse guitar duos like Tipton/Downing and Mustaine/Friedman. Past Tense has made a big impression on Lansing's metal scene.
Laurentian Tides
Laurentian Tides
As the anchors of media continue to pull band after band down to a place where self identity is nearly impossible to maintain, Laurentian tides wades through this maelstrom to venture into the complexity of humanity’s abyss.

Tom, Richardoug, Billy, and Alex bring symmetrical melodies to a swirl of chaotic tones with influences such as the Deftones, Animals as Leaders, The Chariot, Tool, Opeth, Scale the Summit, The Ocean, Candiria, etc.
