3RD STRIKE - Lost angel [2002]

3rd Strike was a nu metal group, started by Jim Korthe (lead singer), Todd Deguchi (guitar), Erik Carlsson (guitar), PJ McMullan (drums) and Gabe Hammersmith (bass). Their lyrics were primarily based upon the former lives of the group's members. In May, 2002, they released their debut and only album, Lost Angel. They toured with Ozzfest and Warped Tour to promote their album, but broke up shortly after. Their song "Into Hell Again" was featured on the Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life soundtrack.

SO FAR AS I KNOW - Far from the Earth Beneath your feet [2012]

A wide embrace of disparate musical influences, dynamics, textures and emotions. SO FAR AS I KNOW is not just another post-rock band who shot their vocalist. Their music is an experiment. Incorporating elements of different musical genres into what they offer to their listeners, blending and fusing those genres together at various angles, adding colors and signatures, SO FAR AS I KNOW is truly an amazing find for any post-rock maniac.

COLD NIGHT FOR ALLIGATORS - SINGLE+DEMO [2010 - 2011]










Cold Night For Alligators is neither hardcore, true nor the world’s meanest metal band. It is merely four regular young guys, who wish to present a different musical experience to the listener. An experience that should leave the listener with a memorable impression of what Cold Night For Alligators is. The fact that the source of inspiration stretches from Between The Buried And Me and Meshuggah to The Faceless means that Cold Night For Alligators fills a gap in the growing Danish metal underground environment. The love of a wide span of genres shines through in a musical universe which is mostly characterized by a technical style of playing with progressivity just below the surface.

Excellent experimental music.
Few words of Nick from Rainbow Teeth:
The album is an adventure through the musical spectrum. It is a denouement of our experience with music as we move through branches of indie, surf,post, experimental, math, black metal, atmospheric, punk, jazz, and try tobring everything together into something that we really enjoyed writing, playing, and listening.. It was emotionally debilitating with every detail scrutinized. We used nine guitars, five basses, and four vocalists to develop the tones for each section. We exposed ourselves completely with this album. It is an honest album with nothing held back.


By band request. Enjoy :)
