Based in Eugene, OR, ALAMANCE delivers a new take on Alternative/Rock/Metal genres with a softer electronic atmosphere. Cutting-edge and pushing bounds of a common pop era. This 4-piece suit founded by Singer(Josh Sorhagen) and Guitarist(Matt Pryor) have had many reincarnations of the band since 2004 originally taking roots in New Jersey. After relocating to Oregon and the search for a new sound, they found Bassist(Ivan Calderon) and later added Drummer(Ålexander Zettas) solidifying their line-up. The group is expected to release Singles and content throughout the year of 2022 and perform locally throughout the Pacific Northwest. 

 

 New World Sinner



This old school metal influenced band has been hitting the scene since February of 2008. NWS brings the thunderous sound that has been brought by such acts as "Pantera", "Slayer", "Sepultura", ect... with the new sounds of such acts as "Lamb of God", "Chimaira", and "All Shall Perish" just to name a few.

If you are looking for a killer live performance full of energy, then NWS is the band to see.

New World Sinner was formed February of 2008 with its original lineup of Boots-Vox, Angie Anderson-Guitar, Matt Anderson-Bass, Nick Marquez-Drums, and Shawn Clepe-Lead Guitar. After alot of lineup changes also including Steve Crum (former drummer) and Stephen Moores (former drummer) Fairon Lister (former Drummer), New World Sinner settled into their current skins Boots-Vox, Lacy Hepner-Bass, Shane Hepner-Rhythm/Leads/Drums, Brian Brown-Lead Guitar backing Vox, Raymond Best-Rhythm Guitar, and brand new to the band Tim Benton on Drums.

Even with the constant lineup changes and a 6+ year Hiatus over time New World Sinner has still managed to produce a first EP title "E.P. 1.0" in the spring of 2009 an released their 2nd EP "2.0" in September of 2011. NWS has played well over 150 shows in the Oregon underground metal scene, and have been featured in several comps,radio shows,and podcasts all over the world.
