Mixing records since 1982, Craig De Sean Adams has been indoctrinating people with his own take on Detroit dance music, (sometimes called Ghetto Tech or Booty House) which is very much an amalgam of his radio predecessors. DJ Assault is also the man behind a whole new set of beats — the man responsible for some of the most infectious hooks this side of the Mississippi, including his all-time XXX anthem, ‘Ass & Titties’.’Double Duchess are a queer electro-hop duo that delivers a theatrical, interactive musical experience, where the audience will get wet, one way or another. They have rocked it at Blow Pony (Portland, OR), Stay Gold (San Francisco), SPIT (Vancouver, Canada) Homo A go-go events, Bottom of the Hill, Public Works, Something (San Francisco), The Stud, Fruitcake (San Francisco), Milk Bar and the beat goes on.’ –Accidental BearRAPID FIRE hails from Phoenix, Arizona. Acclaimed for their extravagant live performances, bone rattling guitars, and thunderous hooks, this five piece has rediscovered the roots of metal. Drawing on influences from AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest, RAPID FIRE delivers the ferocity of their metal predecessors with a hefty dose of originality. To put it simply, RAPID FIRE is metal.
RAPID FIRE is currently beginning to tour and is searching for a label to produce their forthcoming full-length album. With a fresh demo and a blood lust for success, RAPID FIRE is hell bent to return true metal to the masses. Currently, RAPID FIRE is aggressively attacking the Phoenix scene and planning several U.S. tours over the next year; they have become a juggernaut of shameless self-promotion.
RAPID FIRE is Leith Walden (Vocals), Ian ‘Battle Axe’ Walden (Lead Guitar), Dan ‘Shredder’ Fox (Lead Guitar), Brandon ‘War Hammer’ Kinchen (Bass Guitar), and Matt ‘Sweet Valley’ Reed (Drums). This original lineup has loved rockin’ together since their early 2002 explosion onto the rock scene with no plans to letup, ever.
RAPID FIRE has shared the stage with such national acts as: TNT (The official AC/DC Tribute Band), Led Zepagain, The Eyeliners, Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, Vehemence, Dynamite Boy and many more. Look for RAPID FIRE as they tear up stages across the country and continue to spread the metal gospel. As stated in one of their infectious choruses, they are ‘…never gonna stop rockin!’
