ELECTUS can be accredited to Rhythm Guitarist/Vocalist Russell Peake in early 2008 when he knew that it was time to form a group that would satisfy his hunger & Passion for Hard Rock Music.
As the music progressed concentrating on songwriting from 2003 & from the initial acoustic recordings & occasional touring the song list grew, the line-up expanded to welcome Dan Smith in 2014 on Bass. 2015 the band welcomed Mick Hales on the Drums & Pete Checkley on Lead Guitar! With a lineup complete ELECTUS! wasted no time learning the material and launching onto the UK gigging circuit.
ELECTUS! has no boundaries blending all the elements which have influenced the band along with melodic chorus lines giving the band the breathing room to experiment their passion.
Wakedown are an Alternative Rock/metal band based in Wolverhampton UK, featuring former members of In Denial and Valous. Since forming this new project in September 2015 they have recorded so far a 2 track cd From Ashes & What Lies Beneath with new material in the works.
OH yea……You wanna know all about SHYYNE…??? Wolverhampton’s own 80’s LA style Hardrock band….and their superb brand of Semi sleazy Hard Rock and Roll Anthems, OF COURSE YOU DO…..BUT you’re gonna have to endure another review..Read on folks! (by kind permission) “SHYYNE The Black Country’s own LA 80’s Hardrock band.
Think of Shyyne as a road trip thru the best Hardrockin’ sounds…… Spend a night in RATT, the morning spent sightseeing in Cinderella, afternoon Jack Daniels at the bar in Poison/Crue, spend the evening air guitaring at Lynch Mob and Dokkken and then bed down totally worn out but equally totally exuberated for the night in Van Halen, this is the sound this band achieve and they make no apologies for doing so!! Unashamedly an 80’s sound but acheived so very 21st century, and rightly so!!
Performing their bouncy but razor sharp brand of original Hardrock anthems in an energetic and entertainingly lighthearted way this band have hardrocked and very hard rolled thru the Midlands during 2013/14/15, tearing up stages from the Robin 2… thru the O2 , far and wide and then back to their hometown stage at the Slade rooms Wolverhampton and attracting huge critical acclaim along their hardrocking travels.
SHYYNE, a 4 piece, were formed in late 2012 in the heart of the Black Country by ex-Rezist/Surrender frontman Toni Gale and shredder guitarist Mark Wilkins formerly of Roulette…….. Joined on drums by the enigmatic Dave Harvey and now, last but not least the highly accomplished Bass of Matt Freeman..
Fresh from their acclaimed support slots including Enuffs E’nuff, Love/Hate, Toseland, Molly Hatchet, Tygertailz, Moonkings and the mighty Y&T no less and due to be joining the legendary Nazareth on the Midlands leg of their forthcoming tour, and with their brilliantly received debut EP “If I could” being hotly followed by their debut album “Worlds Gone Crazy” which released in 2015 (iTunes/Spotify/cdBaby/
hardrock fans the whole world over. See them live, as soon as you possibly can. Because y’know, we have for far too long missed out on that good time feeling we all had in the eighties when Hardrock and Glam metal was just that. Aaaah BUT this band have GOT IT, They have it all, and they got lots of it! And as this band rightly say. Shyyne On!…!
