The female-fronted hard rock band Mongrel has inked a deal with independent record label Unable Records, based in southern New Jersey, for the release of Mongrel’s “Evolution” EP in June.

For Mongrel, noted as the hardest working band in Boston by Metal Edge Magazine, this signing represents the next logical step on their path forward.  Since the addition of lead singer Jessica Sierra, Mongrel has been an unstoppable force, taking the bars and hard rock venues of the eastern U.S. by storm.  Show after show, release after release, Mongrel has consistently proven that they are among the best bands active in the scene today.  Dan Nelson, formerly of Anthrax, has said, “Mongrel is more than punk, more than metal, they tread the line somewhere in between; a rare musical hybrid that brings the listener into their dangerous and heavy world, then keeps them there with beautiful and unapologetic force”.

A professional and dedicated band that has already put out amazing records to wide critical acclaim, Mongrel and Unable Records are poised to raise the bar yet again with the June release of the five-song EP entitled “Evolution”.  Aptly named, this latest effort by Mongrel was recorded by Jim Foster (POD, Nullset, Sully Erna) and mixed by Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Evanescence, Godsmack).  Famed engineer Howie Weinberg, who has worked with bands like Metallica, Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pantera, mastered “Evolution”, bringing huge production value to the outstanding song writing and musicianship that has made Mongrel fan-favorites everywhere they go.

The partnership between Mongrel and Unable Records is a natural fit.  Voted the Best Punk Band of 2014 by Pulse Magazine, Mongrel will be right at home on the Unable Records roster.  Previous projects by these punk rock specialists include releases from The Bastard Suns, No Fuego, Murder Majesty, and Ransom Price.

“Evolution” will be available exclusively through iTunes beginning May 20th, and will be released through all major online retailers and streaming services on June 3rd.  Physical copies will be available in select U.S. stores as well as through Unable Records, Amazon, and Mongrel directly.  Radio promotional support for “Evolution” will be provided by SP Unlimited, with general promotion and public relations provided by Unable Records.  “This band will bring a smile to your face and have your first pumping from beginning to end.  They don’t make records like this anymore”  -  Pivotal Rage Webzine.  Let the fist pumping begin.

 Metal hardcore act My Revengence, is a 5-piece who's dealt with various band changes through the years, played some shows on and off, and are finally down to recording some material and continuing with their current line-up, while there has been some mishaps along the way these guys are determined to get the word out about themselves for all to hear. They all in fact got together to discuss their tireless little journey and just how far along they have come.



 1. What type of band are you?

Dewey says a bad ass one! Eric add's hardcore metal while Bo and Ray say it's a touch of progressive revenge-core! Matt says it's a little of everything but mostly hardcore metal.

2. Tell us a brief history of the band.

Matt says The band was started with three people, Raymond Surratt, and Matthew Eanes and also Trent Manning. They practiced in the basement of a church. We played two shows and the drummer was fired. Raymond left the band to finish school. Then John Coulson, Garrett Ingle, Mike Patterson, all three lasted only two months, then there was Matthew left.

  Then after eight months of cycling out members, John Mattingly played drums for three shows then left for the army. Finally we found someone me, then found Ray Milton, John Meeks, Eric Hale, and Dewey Milton, these members to this day remain true blue. Except for Ray Milton who had to quit due to job issues then Raymond Surrat came back after finishing school.

The current members have played shows for almost a year. We have done small recordings and started a Facebook page and we're ready to create studio recordings from now on.

3. Why did you want your band to be a five piece act?

Two guitarists, bassist, drummer, vocalist, and synth, sounded like a great mix to us. But it's been hard finding a dedicated synth player.

4. Where did the bands name "My Revengence" come from and mean for the band?

It came from an idea of taking vengeance twice, and it means to Ray Eric "Taking vengeance for yourself from issues of the past.

Matt says For me its like I've been in many bands and so far all of them but this one have failed, because
undedicated members, and a lot of people keep telling me I will never make it as a musician, I wont make it, I'm not good enough, and every show I play, the closer I get, to making it big, is another way of telling all of them Fuck You!

Bo " Dewey " says I don't know much about vengeance but it means family to me.

5. Who are your musical and non musical influences?

Non-musical, Eric says Luna Hale *daughter* desiring to escape Virginia and I am a fan of Bo, pussy, pot, and boobs make me smile.

Ray says My dad, brother, and I'm a fan of Bo's Dewey, my uncle Ray, family, dogs, and I'm a fan of Bo.

Matt says My son Corbin Eanes, my wife Amber Eanes, The Crow's Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee, oh and I'm a fan of Bo.

Musical influences would be Swift, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Whitechapel, Gwar, Suicide Silence, Killswitch Engage, Pig Destroyer, ICP. Pantera, Rings of Saturn, As I lay Dying, Born of Osiris, Animals As Leaders, Anisokay, and Dream Theater.

6. What are your songs about, what themes do they cover?

Sadistic realities of life, a little humor, and some dark tragedy with some very iconic epic heroic themes.

7. Do you write your own songs?

Bo says "We all just start with music and try to come up with an idea for a theme. Then we try to fit the vocals to fit the tone for a song, whether it'd be dark or melodic."

8: When can we expect to see an EP or full length release from you guys?

Hopefully this summer, we are in the studio currently, so keep up with us on our social media pages for a release date.

9. Are you guys unsigned or signed to a label?

Well no we're not actually signed but we should be damnit! We have our own booking group though who helps us and other bands in the area out which does make a difference and helps a lot.

10. What are our dreams and goals?

To make it BIG! Get out of this bullshit town, proving to people how wrong they were about us then kill them all for it with the love of our music and show creativity.

11. How do you promote your band in shows?

We have a booking group that helps other bands and us, we also mix in the fans, social media, friends and family with a lot of word of the mouth. Nowadays venues do not advertise shit for bands it's all for the band to do, to get the word out!

12. Describe your shows, visually, and musically for us.

Dewey says "Matt won't let us have visuals". We have a ton of fucking energy mixed with juagerbombs, synchronized bouncing, the more you see us the more crazier we get and our fans get too. Everyone in the band tries to be as professional as we can without loosing the fun in it!

13: What are the future plans for you guys?

To continue to rock this shit like never before, get some bad ass records made and hopefully a label will sign us! We'll then do some tours across the U.S. and outside of the U.S. For everyone to stay a family, Bo wouldn't have to take it off, she would find a way to take it off!

14. Anything else you would like to say.

We are fans of Bo! Do not understand what that means, just go to a show, listen to us, find out we are still kicking ass and are number 1! In our area of Martinsville Vawe and from around the world we would really like the fans to help with promoting as much as possible. We're also getting merch ready for purchase so keep your fucking eyes and ears peeled! Don't forget to check us out on our Facebook page  www.facebook.com/MyRevengence

BabyMetal everyone still may not know what this is or who they are but BabyMetal is actually a band, a trip that has fused together the Japanese idol music and metal together to create their own unique style of music. It's worked well for them thus far but some fans still take this as not being metal whatsoever. However you look or listen to it, these girls have released singles, videos, and their first full-length self-titled debut, combining of those singles and some new tracks too.

Now if you've seen the videos, heard the singles, and even had a chance to see them live in-person or via their live concert DVD "Live ~Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse~" you can already guess what to expect and this release is a copycat of the concert DVD. It features the same setlist they use in their performance.  BabyMetal's style is as said before, unique in its own way, the pop aspect is like other Japanese styles, but again they bring the metal appeal, making it more "out there" it's heavy, catchy, has the riffs, solos, just everything you would expect metal to be. Some of those notable songs has to be the obvious "Megitsune", "Head Bangya!!", and "Ijime Dame Zettai", other's include "Catch Me If You Can", "Doki Doki Morning", "4no Uta", and "Uki Uki Midnight".

BabyMetal is one of those bands that's truly interesting, has a concept that the band can stick to, and you just have to listen to it to understand it. It's one of those releases you won't regret in listening too because it has you wanting to hear it again and again because it's hard to resist.
