Emilie Autumn, Courtney Love's “anarchy violinist” returns to the stage and is keeping the spotlight all to herself. With appearances on Leno and Letterman, glossy magazine covers, and guest spots on the albums of such artists as Love, Otep, Billy Corgan, and TV’s “Metalocalypse,” under her corset strings, Emilie Autumn’s devilishly dark lyrics, metal–shredding violin solos, and industrial–strength voice reinvent “gothic” for the masses, and goths have never had so much fun.

Chosen by Interview Magazine as one of their “14 Artists to Watch,” the Los Angeles–born starlet’s theatrical stage show is a sexy circus of glam–rock burlesque, backed by a scantily–clad girl band known to EA’s devoted fans as the Bloody Crumpets. Her latest full–length album is the double disc “Opheliac,” of which she is the sole composer, performer, and producer.


Teen Hearts is a fun, energetic, positive DIY band that has achieved numerous accomplishments in their short existence. The bands debut EP “The Heartsbeat EP” was produced by Hellogoodbye front man Forrest Kline. Check out their first full–length album “Best Kept Secrets.”

Adam Bones is an artist AND a band without a past. The man behind the EP Rock it Up is man arising from the shadows to stake a claim and make sure that everyone Knows His Name. Likewise, his band, an All-Girl-Kung Fu-Army of riffs and beats to be dealt with, came from over the waters but emerged here (in your face), fully formed and ready for service. A true classic rock ‘n’ roll band. Adam Bones band members use Manic Panic® Glamnation™ Cosmetics!


 

Dawn of Ashes, formed in 2001, started off as a Horror-Industrial act and as the years progressed incorporated elements from Metal, Rock & Industrial with a new twist of evil.

New Years Day knows that at one time or another, each of us has suffered heartbreak — and each person deals with it in a different way. However, instead of moping around or flirting with illegal substances, New Years Day — vocalist Ash, guitarist Mike, drummer Russell, guitarist Keith and bassist Adam decided to transform their relationship woes into a brand of goth pop that’s as catchy as it is cathartic. New Years Day has been making quite a noise and touching the hearts of many fans with their ultra–catchy, anthemic songs that just happen to be loaded with daggers for lyrics. Ash Costello shines and shows a true star power that will keep you keep you watching and a voice that will stay in your head.

MiltiA is… the matriarch of the NYC based hard rock/heavy metal band, +SWEAR ON YOUR LIFE+ and the lead singer in The all-girl tribute to the metal gods, JUDAS PRIESTESS.

“I play ‘Vita’ in the all female rock opera CHIX 6. I like to sing… LOUD. Most people know me from VJ–ing, hosting shows + guesting on FUSE, Much Music, VH1 and MTV2 — particularly from the tv show ‘HEAVY METAL MAKEOVER.’ I’ve spit out 2 Live Crew covers and jumped around onstage with CX KiDTRONiK and I’ve sung with some of the best in the business: Dee Snider, Cyndi Lauper, Sandra Bernhard, Ana Gasteyer, Taylor Dayne and Nancy Sinatra.”

MilitiA rocks with MANIC PANIC® Hair Colors!


HELLASAKURA is a trio from São Paulo Brazil with Cherry (guitars and vocals of extinct band Okotô and drummer of the band Eletrobillys and Hats) with Napalmer on bass and Pitchu on drums.

Prepare yourselves for destruction! Influences of Punk & Metal, they’ve been performing and releasing new materials since 2007. The HELLSAKURA sound is like an engine without a muffler, a starving stomach, a spiritual hell, a loud distortion screamed at the world, a Sakura storm!

Guitar player and singer Cherry wears MANIC PANIC® Hair Color and Cosmetics. Cherry says, “The MANIC PANIC® Spider Liner is the best eye make up that I have used till now! It can stands the sweat of rock very well!”

This rocker should know. Check out her vid below:


(note Cherry’s Atomic Turquoise hair, Spider Liner eyes, and MANIC PANIC® Tee)


Rasputina was founded by Melora Creager in 1991 as a way to meet like–minded girls: girls who were interested in rocking the cello and wearing corsets. That was a time when corsetry was quite uncommon, mind you. Rasputina pioneered the use of cello in rock music.

They’ve toured and recorded all these years, including relationships with Marilyn Manson and Siouxsie Sioux, among multitudinous others. Melora played the cello with Nirvana. They’ve made 7 albums and have leagues of passionate fans who follow their unique and evolving looks closely. Podcast pioneer Dawn Miceli joined the group last year as a drummer & singer. Daniel DeJesus on cello & voice is an androgynous wonder–guy.

Rasputina is so talented and funny. There is no one remotely like them. Melora wears MANIC PANIC® Electric Tiger Lily hair color. Dawn wears Hot Hot Pink and After Midnight®.


MANIC PANIC® posterchild EMILY LAZAR— “M” — has a voracious appetite for performing. Her growling vocals and dynamic stage presence drinks in her audience and devours the stage. Recently, her band September Mourning recorded a demo produced by Carley Coma (ex–Candiria/ Hope Kills Fear) and Mike Barille (Candiria, Dillinger Escape Plan, Lamb of God). Billboard hit songwriter/producer Gardner Cole co–wrote a song with M and the band to be featured in a Draven Shoe Campaign for their new line, Lost Angels.

September Mourning has played with artists like Debbie Harry, Hanzel Und Gretyl, and The Birthday Massacre to rave reviews.

“My name is Alissa White–Gluz, vegan frontwoman of The AGONIST… I have been using MANIC PANIC® for almost a decade now, and my blue hair has become my signature look. I even appeared on Canadian Idol and was known nationally for my flashy hair. I also was recently dubbed one of Revolver's 20 Hottest Chicks in Metal. I devotedly use (Manic Panic®) Shocking Blue and streak it with a little Atomic Turquoise.”

It is extremely rare to find an up–and–coming metal band taking strong political stands, much less one that’s led by a dominating, beautiful, edgy female. But it is exactly this unique dynamic that led Century Media Records to sign Montreal’s THE AGONIST to a worldwide deal. This quartet delivers introspective, scathing lyrics, and their debut album “Once Only Imagined,” set for release in Fall 2007, will definitely catch people’s attention.

Vocalist Alissa White–Gluz’s vegan roots fuel her need to promote the protection of the planet and its inhabitants and she does so through this outlet. Along with guitarist Danny Marino, bassist Chris Kells and drummer Simon McKay, each member brings their own rich musical backgrounds to the table, creating the perfect expression of melody and madness. Make no mistake, this is a straight–up metal band that holds nothing back with one goal in mind: to make music that is as catchy as it is heavy, as sweet as it is loud, and as angry as it is melancholy.


KOMMUNITY FK, formed by front man/composer Patrik Mata in 1978, was immediately hailed by local and International press as “The Most Promising Band In Years.” Kommunity FK’s fan base and the press write–ups placed Kommunity FK’s new sound as the Amerikan genesis and predecessor to today’s Gothik/Deathrock/Industrial/Art Punk sound. Patrik Mata has worked with some of the music industry’s top producers, such as, Ken Scott (David Bowie), Joe Chicarelli (Frank Zappa), and more. Mata’s musical anthem “Something Inside Me Has Died” charted in top high rotation on both MTV’s “120 Minutes,” and featured four years in a row on “Elvira’s Halloween Special” along with The Cure, Bauhaus, and other Gothic favorites.

Sherry Rubber (a noted Kerrang Magazine ‘Lady Killer’) has been Kommunity FK’s sole lead guitarist since 1997.
