Extreme Turbo Smash
Where some bands regurgitate and emulate the sounds of hardcore, Extreme Turbo Smash begins anew. Not only do they expand upon the often repetitive and drab elements of hardcore, ETS expands the reach of a typical hardcore show by opting out of the commonplace masculine posturing and, instead, dress like bunnies. Actually, there’s only one bunny – but they also have a panda, a reindeer, a polar bear and a st. bernard.

In a genre that too often relies on angst, politics and volume (though, to be fair, they are quite loud) their live show adds a tongue-in-cheek undertone of sarcasm, which oddly enough doesn’t undermine their abilities. They excel greatly as songwriters and musicians. However, it is as showmen that they shine their greatest. You may not completely understand what they are going for, or why they have chosen this specific brand of entertainment – mixing irony, edge, and stuffed animals – but you will be entertained. And if the live show doesn’t convince you that they’re hardcore, close your eyes. Listen. Yes, that’s a bunch of guys dressed as adorable animals making that music, and being every bit as hard core as other bands in the genre. Don’t keep your eyes closed for too long, though. You may miss some funny shit
Suspension 9
These Imaginative cells created the next level of our evolutionary musical generation with Suspension 9. In the year of 2012 the Germany born lead singer Michael Malice formed Suspension 9 in the city of Colorado Springs, CO. Although, the bands wicked line-up was not fully conceived until the ending of the year 2013, the first appearance can be traced back to March 2012 as a two-piece. Suspension 9 consists now of the twisted fragments combined with Michael Malice- Vocals/Songwriter/all instruments, Scary - Bass Guitar, Zvarte Vos- Lead/Rhythm Guitar and Solaris- Beats/Samples/Keys.
Suspension 9 performs an interesting and dangerous blend of German/American/Industrial rock with a alternative electronica twist, reminiscent of bands like KMFDM, Rammstein, early Marilyn Manson and The Prodigy. The Band has been playing shows in various cities, along side national and international acts like Bile, Avatar, Doyle (ex-Misfits), Gemini Syndrome, Koffin Kats, Davey Suicide and others. The first S9 demo "Prototype: Failed" was self-produced on CD-R, limited to 50 copies that consisted of three songs and was given out at the first shows. In the early Spring of 2013 the first promo album "A Greater Mechanism" was independently released by the band as 500 CD copies containing ten original songs and a cover of Jack Off Jill's "Bruises are Back in Style." A year later a video for one of the songs "Eyes Black and Blue" was filmed and self-produced in the summer of 2014 and made public on Youtube. As the year 2014 came to a close, Suspension 9 gained support and encouraging survival from recognition that consisted of our wickly dedicated fans, promoters, venues and radio stations. . With our aggressive stage-shows consisting of sweat, blood and fire-breathing (of course depending on the venues approval of fire) Suspension 9 is ready to bring something exciting, mesmerizing, being able to re-light the flames. Burning off the tender history of rust and bringing life back to the music industry. In June 2015 Suspension 9 has added the promotional/Management/booking talents of Carrie Gaylord- Manager/Booking agent allowing the band to further expand into the vast horizons of the music industry. For booking or press/promotional inquiries contact Ms. Gaylord at 720-417-9775 or Blueyed_Production303@outlook.com. We are working together on a new album that will not disappoint the evil serenity of your souls. Now in the making...
