Seritas - From two hours north of Detroit come the duo, Seritas. Combining heavy yet melodic riffs and the soulful vocals of guitarist/singer Ryan Evans with the urgent, pounding garage rock drums of Misty Evans and you have a style of music that doesn't easily fit in to a genre, though Garage Doom comes close. Both heavy and melodic with a proclivity for live improvisation.

SEVERE HEAD DRAMA - Hailing from Saginaw, MI, with roots in metal, old school punk and bits of glam,- we are Severe Head Drama. We don't adhere to any specific style or sound,-or era. We do what comes naturally given our influences and backgrounds. There are no limitations on creativity. And while most of our songs are in the same "neighborhood" - there are obvious distinctions. What might set us apart, often times alienates us. Sound familiar? Welcome to our world. "Belong because you don't. "We like to think we're a bridge between the Heavy, and not-as-Heavy. We're more influenced by what we don't like. With a blend of melody & aggression without compromise, without apology, we are therapy for our own inner demons. We are our only salvation.
In the end, we're just a rock band. So get over yourself and enjoy!!! Get DRAMATIZED!!!!!!!!!!

Members Dylan and Cam joined the next summer, replacing two previous members. Younger brother and "roadie," Dylan Kissel joined permanently while Cam, at first a quick phone call in order to fill an unanticipated empty spot, gained his permanence as the perfect last piece to the lineup.

This band, “All For The Cause”, is just that: all for the cause. “What cause”, you may ask, - any cause that someone is truly compassionate about & it does not cause harm to anything, or anyone else. Yes, it’s somewhat of a generic cause, but it is how they and many people feel today. While they are not extremely political, they care about what happens to people, and the governing of them. From all walks of life, not just here at home, and even though they don’t base their lives around religion they still let it influence their lives everyday, by respecting, and understanding the value of a belief.
-With that said, what is your cause? Do you even have one? Or better yet, … do you even care? …
