Threat Signal
Threat Signal
Threat Signal is a Canadian metal band from the city of Hamilton, Ontario. Threat Signal was formed in late 2003 by cousins Jon and Rich Howard, eventually they added guitarist Kyle McKnight and began writing material. In early 2004, drummer Adam Matthews joined the band. Threat Signal posted their song "Rational Eyes" on an international metal chart on GarageBand.com. After a few weeks, the song reached #1, and it has received many awards including best guitars, best drums, best male vocals, best production, song of the week, and song of the day. In August 2004 Eric Papky, Kyle's former guitar teacher, joined the band on bass. Success on GarageBand.com sparked some early record label interest and helped create a large following even prior to the band ever having played live. In August 2005 Marco Bresette replaced Eric Papky on bass guitar.

Dire Peril
Dire Peril
Sci-Fi Power Metal band from Sacramento, CA. Formed in 2011.
Dire Peril is the singular vision of guitarist Jason Ashcraft who combined his love for science-fiction with that of power metal. Joined by bassist Jeremiah Bear, guitarist Jacob Grant, drummer Ben Jackson and powerhouse vocalist Norman Skinner (ex - Imagika), this Northern California band is a must for lovers of Iced Earth & Iron Maiden.
Age Of Embers
AGE OF EMBERS is a female-fronted melodic metal band. Inspired by European bands such as Sonata Artica, Nightwish and Iron Maiden, the music showcases a desire to create a fresh perspective on American-born heavy metal.

Formed in New Haven, CT in summer 2016, the group is led by frontwoman Katrina Emberio. She uses her classical training, love of 80's rock, broadway and extreme vocals to project a unique and dynamic performance. She is backed by Michael Cavadini, Ray King, and Brandon Parris, and Kyle Knight, whom have shared the stage with notable acts such as Sonata Arctica, Leaves Eyes, Fate's Warning, Revocation, Ne Obliviscarus, and Symphony X.

Together, they have created a composition of strident riffs and anthemic choruses, both of which have enraptured audiences from NYC to Boston, MA.
One Day Waiting
One Day Waiting is an alternative metal band from the Hudson Valley NY. The band was established in 2013 and is comprised of 4 equally dedicated members who maintain a fusion of the melody of rock music with the intensity of metal.
The lead vocalist is Tyler Kray. He's been listening to rock / metal since 2005 and first started to perform in bands by 2011. Inspired by bands like Disturbed and Drowning Pool, he incorporates a heavy singing style with clean and raspy vocals along with harsh screams. He is also responsible for writing the majority of ODW's lyrics.
Nick Cozzolino, the guitarist, was turned onto rock music at the age of 10. Going to his first concert, not knowing anything about rock music, he saw Shinedown and Trapt perform. It was then that he knew that's what he wanted to for the rest of his life. He started playing guitar at age 11 and has been in and out of bands since 2010. ODW is the right fit he has been looking for. His roots are southern rock, hard rock and alternative metal.
Griffin Silvestro started teaching himself drums at the age of 9. After experimenting with jazz and funk, he settled on metal. After hearing Breaking Benjamin for the first time, he set his sights on performing with a band. He originally joined One Day Waiting in 2013 and played for 2 years until leaving to pursue school. He joined back in December 2016 and is looking forward to many more years with the band.
One Day Waiting continues to grow as time progresses. They bring the frantic raw energy at their concerts that empowers the audience to listen and feel their music. As of 2015, they have played in 4 different states and have released two EP's. They have had the honor of sharing the stage with these wonderful bands:
