Formed in 2008, South Carolina metal trio Carolina Chupacabra has been moving forward with the monstrous steps of the mythical beast for which they are named. Straying from the normal confines of shredding guitars and incoherent screaming, the band has developed a unique blend of old-school power chords and stylized thought-provoking lyrics, all fronted by crisp clean growls and screams that only vocalist/guitarist Wade Parrott can deliver. Along with drummer Jeff Campbell and bassist Jason Kneece, Carolina Chupacabra is opening new doors for the entire SC music scene. Their 2009 debut release, Birth of the Beast, gave a brief, but well versed, glimpse into the mind of the band, only to have that glimpse completely overcast by their 2012 release, Living the American Nightmare. Up until this point, the band has shared the stage with the likes of Kylesa, Jucifer, Throttlerod, and Temptation’s Wings. Now, with an April 2012 album release party under their belt, it’s time for Carolina Chupacabra to do what they do best: “To be like the Chupacabra a Mythical Entity that people will always remember. They will always remember the diversity in our music.”
SCATTERED HAMLET -
“It’s all whiskey bottles and black eyes..Scattered Hamlet whips up a tasty omelette of Southern-fried strut rock, slathered liberally with radio-ready hooks and hillbilly swagger”
-Classic Rock Magazine
Scattered Hamlet [skat-erd/ham-lit] A small dispersed or widely spaced settlement, generally one smaller than a village.
“Trucker speed on the war-path baby” bellows Scattered Hamlet front man and founder, Adam Joad, as the five piece band of musical outlaws thunder through another ripping set of what they fondly describe as Rock and Roll, Metal, Southern-Mayhem. Conceived from the minds of Joad and Victory Records veteran, Ari M. (Destrophy/Otep), Scattered Hamlet was created to capture the essence of growing up in the country while giving a nod to the original classic rock and outlaw country pioneers. One part Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet and capturing modern rock elements from Down to Buckcherry, Scattered Hamlet has been described as having a little something for all true hard rock fans.
The band considers themselves nomads and has their humble origins in various small rural towns around the U.S. They make no apologies for their equal love of Harley Davidsons, honky tonks, Les Pauls, Marshalls, shotguns and all three generations of Hank Williams. Featuring Adam Joad ‘The Appalachian apostle’ (vocals/guitar/harmonica/banjo) Redd Yoachum ‘The Texan’ (guitar/slide), Richard Erwin (bass/vocals) and Jake Delling le Bas ‘The Irish Thunder’ (Drums).
Scattered Hamlet has made two appearances on Van’s Warped Tour (2010/2011), done product demonstrations at NAMM 2012, completed a full national tour with Jason Charles Miller (Godhead), showcased at SXSW (2011) Rocklahoma (2012), been direct tour support for Cold (eleven Seven Records), Texas Hippie Coalition (Carved Records), Alien Ant Farm, Jackyl, Matt Toka (Warner Brothers), Tenafly Viper (Members of Mushroodhead and the Autumn Offering), Tracii guns (LA Guns) in addition to appearing at festivals with a Day To Remember, attack attack and Black Veil Brides. The bands first full length, Skeleton Dixie (2013), was produced by two time Grammy nominated Jason Donaghy and Mastered by Howie Weinberg.
Skull Baby -
We describe ourselves as serial killer rock n roll. The sound has a very 70's feel to it. And very serial killer/sleeze/horror influenced.
