Drowning Pool, a name etched in the annals of modern rock history, roars back into the spotlight with thunderous energy and uncompromising power. The band’s unmistakable sound, synonymous with raw energy and unapologetic attitude, returns with singer Ryan McCombs to captivate audiences once again.


Known for their iconic anthem “Bodies,” Drowning Pool needs no introduction. This breakout single propelled them to international recognition, leaving an indelible mark on the nu metal landscape. The song’s relentless energy and defiant spirit resonated with a generation, becoming an anthem for moshers, metalheads, and fans of electrifying live performances.

Ryan McCombs played a pivotal role in the band’s evolution, joining their ranks in the aftermath of the tragic loss of beloved frontman Dave Williams. His powerful vocals and charismatic stage presence breathed new life into Drowning Pool, solidifying their status as metal titans. Songs like “37 Stitches,” “Feel Like I Do,” and “Turn So Cold” catapulted them to new heights, earning them a place among the genre’s heavyweights.

Yet, Drowning Pool’s story is not just about music; it’s a testament to enduring friendships and a shared passion for their craft. Ryan’s return to the band in 2023 marks a reunion of kindred spirits, a return to the roots of their musical journey. As he succinctly puts it, “Just being back in the same room together after so many years… was a quick reminder as to why I considered them to be my best friends in the business back in the day.”

Their path has not been without its challenges. “Bodies” faced misinterpretations and controversy, with its lyrics taken out of context. Nevertheless, their music has persisted, embraced by the very culture that birthed it. “Bodies” remains an enduring anthem, not just for Drowning Pool but for metal culture as a whole. Its legacy lives on, inspiring new generations of fans. Guitarist C.J. Pierce captures the essence of their dedication: “I’d play ‘Bodies’ five times a night if people really wanted it that bad!” The song’s timeless appeal transcends generations, resonating with both the seasoned and the fresh-faced.

Drowning Pool’s return is a testament to the enduring power of their music, a reminder that their unapologetic spirit continues to strike chords with audiences worldwide. The stage is set for a triumphant resurgence, and Drowning Pool is poised to reignite the fires of their unmistakable sound.


Waylon Reavis is known to many for his years fronting Mushroomhead, but he exited the band in the fall of 2015 and nearly gave up music altogether. Thanks to a little divine intervention, he found himself with a rejuvenated passion and something to say. The vessel for his message is his current band A Killer’s Confession, who recently announced the upcoming release of a brand new full-length album, Victim 1.

With a blend of aggressive riffing, pounding rhythms, and Reavis's commanding vocals, the band delivers a sonic assault that leaves a lasting impression. Drawing from a diverse range of influences spanning metal, rock, and alternative, A Killer's Confession forges a sound that's uniquely their own. Their lyrics delve into the depths of human emotion, exploring themes of struggle, redemption, and the darker aspects of the human psyche. Through their music, A Killer's Confession invites listeners to confront their inner demons and find solace in the power of music.

As they continue to evolve and push the boundaries of their sound, A Killer's Confession remains committed to delivering music that's both impactful and authentic. With each release, they reaffirm their place as one of the most compelling voices in modern metal.


As if channeling a primal urge to let loose under cover of darkness, Moon Fever churns out slick, swaggering, and soulful rock‘n’roll anthems amplified by raw attitude and stark emotion. Their blend of elements like classic rock, blues, and alternative create a sonic tapestry that resonates with audiences far and wide. The Seattle quartet — Triston Bracht [vocals], Mitch Micoley [guitar], Dave Orton [bass], and Troy Wageman [drums] — captivate with a one-two punch of raucous instrumentation and intoxicating melodies. Since bursting onto the scene, Moon Fever has captivated audiences with their electrifying live performances, earning a reputation as one of the must-see acts in the Seattle music scene.

After racking up millions of streams independently and earning acclaim from the likes of Alternative Press, Substream Magazine and many more, the group continues to sharpen their signature style and plan to release a complete collection of songs later this year. Whether they're headlining a local venue or sharing the stage with renowned acts, Moon Fever bring an infectious energy and undeniable charisma to every show, leaving audiences clamoring for more.
