Megosh
Megosh
Forged from the bone-metal of ancient dragons, Megosh rises, and the gods tremble...

Baltimore's Megosh has been toiling behind the scenes for some time brewing up a catalog of high-energy intelligent rock. Their music is melodic with post-progressive elements and frequent forays into the territory of alternative metal, but they manage to maintain an overriding pop sensibility. Megosh somehow fuses these eclectic ingredients into a surprisingly cohesive stew, a sound that is clearly their own. Impressively complex instrumental material will certainly appeal to the musician but, with Megosh, songcraft still reigns- creative use of rhythm and catchy melodies are certain to captivate a wide audience. On top of all this, the front line serves up tasty three-part harmonies- something rarely heard on today's rock scene.

From Under The Willow
"Imaginative, crass, and rebellious"
Ladies and Gentleman, meet From Under the Willow.

Produced by a strong studio line-up of Atrium Audio (August Burns Red, Texas in July, This or the Apocalypse) and Ricky Armellino (I, the Breather, Carousel Kings), the band's first self-release "Outlaws" is an undeniable mash up of unambiguous one liners, flurried guitar work, sans-tuning triple harmony pop choruses, carefully composed electronics, and a technical heaviness that can only be from the well-known central-PA region. With a seemingly endless bag of techniques, FUTW brings all of the modern flash to the stage without falling prey to the maladies ailing an endless wave of sound-a-likes in the genre, FUTW swaps out the "could be anyone" screams and squashed auto-tune singing to bring an indistinguishable message to each song that could only ever be from FUTW.

What sets From Under the Willow apart from the metal-core pack isn't just careful arrangements and catchy hooks, but a honest, punk ethos that fully alters the style together. Wes Good's vocals are sincere, embodying a brutal honesty rarely found in other lyricists of the genre. FUTW skips the standard "keep the kids happy" lyric sets featuring vague themes of redemption, pursuit of happiness, and heartache and remains unashamed to write about real life circumstances of today's youth. The 11 tracks of "Outlaws" tactfully tell stories that scream "I've been through this before": A loved one hides her phone when her ex-boyfriend calls her back before silently acknowledging it a matter better left un-discussed, a young man ruminates over the times he chose to drive under the influence, an erratic boyfriend tells his lover in a moment of honesty that she shouldn't be afraid to risk leaving him. Every track has a realism that, on one hand young and coarse, exhibits a rare wisdom for the heavy music genres.

From Under the Willow can't be impersonated and are surely going to take other artists to task for hiding who they truly are in their songs. Fans of We Came as Romans, Texas in July, I See Stars, and Attila will each find everything to love about this band and more. From Under the Willow has not only created a hype or a following. They have created a new genre, scene, society and a movement.

A talented group of young musicians in their early teens, the band formed back in 2011 as a result of a local school talent show project, taking their name from the place where they would often meet, hangout, and play music together.

As a cover band with a variety of influences, from grunge rock to alternative to more modern pop and rock, Jeske Park is loaded with musical talent beyond their years that's sure to impress and entertain audiences of all ages.
