NEW BREW : FARMACY ELIXIR


 https://www.farmacyband.com/


MEDICAL GRADE METAL


Farmacy is a band located in the heart of the Silver Valley, Kellogg, ID.


Fronted by lead singer, Holly Armijo (Selene Sol), 


Adding to the mix, the dual guitar styling of Mickey West (Mick Madness) and Ryan "Big Daddy" Gaddy(Green Jelly), with the thunderous rhythm of Jeffery Zaleski on bass and drummer Gary West.


With influences by Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, Judas Priest, In This Moment, and Ghost. We have booked 25 shows in 2019 alone (with several more in the works). Farmacy has mastered the art of attracting crowds and promoting our events on social media and on the street, with our in-house art, photography, and media team.



We bring years of experience, and come equipped with professional  light and sound equipment, alliances with several regional musicians, promoters, and production teams.


Farmacy has played several gigs in Idaho, Washington, and Montana, with plans to take our show to a location near you.

NEW BREW :KRILLOAN





https://open.spotify.com/track/0pUu9RzWAuOoupELvnFeEw?si=YMIPA6zgT5O8_NPcHLlaEw


Krilloan is heavy/powermetalproject from Ă„lmhult, Sweden that started out 2020.


I´ve been listening to metal for 30 years and been playing guitar for 20 years, mainly rock and punkmusic but now was the time to create music in the genre I´ve always loved - melodic metal/powermetal with a fantasytheme. 


To fullfill my vision I brought in the mighty Alex VanTrue on vocals and longtime friend Steve Brockmann to help with guitars. "Yggdrasil"was the first song recorded and it was released april 10 2020. It was followed up by "Moonblade" july 10 this year. Stay metal!"

NEW BREW : GIANT ROBOTS IN THE SKY

 Thomas Tulak began his career at 6 years old, as a child actor, most well known for his role as the youngest Lost Boy in Steven Spielberg’s “Hook.” (He’s the one that spit out the candle and shouted, “Goodnight, Neverland!”) On set, Thomas became good friends with the late, Robin Williams. Inspired by his friend and personal hero, mr Williams, Thomas dedicated himself to making people laugh. 



 


Thomas began playing his main instrument, drums, at 12 years old; and guitar at 13 years old. Thomas played drums in several bands through out his teens and twenties, all the while writing songs that his band members weren’t interested in. After all, he was just the drummer… This led Thomas to produce his own songs, performing all the instruments himself.


 


Giant Robots In The Sky is the result.

THE METAL TIMES THE KEY INTERVIEW

 

1.I just have to ask why keyboards?
I’M JUN FROM MUTE TX. I PICKED KEYS BECAUSE AFTER PLAYING GUITAR AND BASS FOR YEARS I WANTED TO EXPERIMENT WITH NEW SOUNDS. THEY HAVE A WIDER RANGE OF SOUNDS I CAN USE.
 
2.When you started playing keys was it your intent to join a metal / rock band?
I WAS ALREADY IN MUTE TX AS AGUITARIST FIRST THEN BASSIST AND BACKUP VOCALS.

3.Who are your influences?
CHRISTIAN LORENZ BECAUSE OF HIS COMPOSITIONS ALONG WITH FREDDY MERCURY AND TRENT REZNOR

4.Do you know who Jon Lord is without using Google?
I’VE HEARD OF HIM AND AM A FAN OF HIS WORK WITH DEEP PURPLE.

5.What do you do visually to enhance your presence ?
WEAR MAKE UP DO ALOT OF BLACKLIGHT. I TRY TO STICK TO MORE TRADITIONAL WARPAINT AND PROPS

6.Why do you think keyboard players in metal get so little recognition?
IN MY OPINION I’M NOT TRYING TO BE A FRONTMAN I ADD AMBIENCE AND THEATRICALITY TO OUR SOUND. WE ALL HAVE ORU PARTS TO PLAY.

7.Did you start on a piano? And what age did you start?
BACK IN MY YOUTH I WOULD PLAY AT THE LOCAL OLD FOLKS HOME ON A STAND UP PIANO.I THINK I WAS LIKE 17 OR 18.

8.Its one thing to seranade with  a guitar  , do you have a seranade story youd like to share?
OF COURSE I DO . I WOULD RECORD COVERS FOR A LONG DISTANT GF I HAD . SHE DIDNT APPRECIATE IT SO IT WAS THE LAST TIME I EVER DID THAT. LOL

9.In line with the last question keyboards are often looked at as romantic are you romantic when you play or are there visions of the Phantom of The Opera ( the scary 30’s one) in your head?
MORE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA WITH A SIDE OF CARNIVAL AND FLASHY LIKE ELTON JOHN.

10.Convince me keyboards are cool because your facing a large audience who begs to differ. Change our minds
NAH YOU EITHER DIG THE MUSIC OR NOT. I’M GOOD WITH THAT.
