SmackFactor
SmackFactor
SMACKFACTOR…This whole project began when formed in late February of 2004. From then on, an unforgettable distinct style of metal has emerged… Tribal infused Power Metal! Smackfactor has the ability to grow on you , grab hold, and never let go! Just ask any of our many loyal fans! This very diverse style of metal is forged by hard working team members with extensive professional backgrounds. Backgrounds not just in metal and hardcore, but also in classical, tribal, folk, jazz and cubanismo (to name a few). Ranking with thier unique sound comes an energetic performance answering the question to the reason why we are in the entertainment business. "You will get your moneys worth" at a SmackFactor show, along with a huge selection of top quality merchandise "we" manufacture ourselves! Yes, SmackFactor owns a full size t-shirt print shop supplying the local and international metal industry! SmackFactor has had the honor of playing with national and local performers in and out of Colorado. Some venues include; The Ogden Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, The Bluebird Theatre, Big City NightClub, Iliff Park Saloon, The Gothic Theatre, Hodis Halfnote and The Dickens Operahouse (to name a few)… SmackFactor is currently gaining an even larger fan base since the new CD release and touring plans are beggining to surface! Success for this group is largely accredited to the "superglue chemistry" formed only through overcoming incredible odds such as scam artist sound engineers— to tactically avoiding local backstabbing politics that only serve to destroy the metal scene. SmackFactor will prove to you on all levels with hard work and determination, you can overcome any obsticle and prosper in your path. We simply won't take "no" for an answer……. Be watching for us………….. We're looking for you……………. (the one and only)……..SMACKFACTOR
Broken Image
Broken Image
Broken Image has had a few mental makeovers. After a much needed break from live shows to focus on their music to create their own sound, they are back in full force with a new outlook on their music and they're ready to tear it up. Broken image isn't about trying to play every single note on every song. They try to write songs that are upbeat, heavy and energetic. They write their songs keeping i
n mind how they will go live. Their music is for the fans, giving them the opportunity to let out all of their pent up emotions in some killer pits. Broken image is, 100%, a live band. If you really want to know what this band is all about, you've got to see them on stage and not just listen to their CD. Even though a lot of time and effort goes into the recording process, the real masterpiece is their live performance. So much passion goes into their set that there have been numerous injuries and hospitalizations after shows. Catch Broken Image live….you won't regret it.
ICO
ICO
ICO-Stands for Immortalis Custos Oriuntur, which is Latin for Immortal Guardian Arise. ICO formed in the fall of 2012 and are getting ready to take the Colorado scene by storm. ICO is currently in the process of writing, recording and rehearsing as they prepare to debut on January 26th at Trailside Saloon!

ICO is proud to be sponsored by Slink Body Ink! Go check them out and give them some love!
