Be Faced
Be Faced is a heavy metal band from Sydney. They've been together for a solid three years, have released an official EP which was released in 2016 entitled Ingot, and have an official music video. Some of their influences are Pantera, Gojira, Metallica, Periphery and Machine Head. Their previous EP, Ingot, is known for its HEAVY METAL sound, but Be Faced have decided to change their music and explore new genres, which is why theyre currently back in the studio recording their debut album and new single entitled Taxed To Death, which will be released later this year. They have also toured with some big Australian acts such as King Parrot and Red Bee and have toured the East Coast of Aus multiple times.

You can check out their music video clip on Youtube, entitled Beating On Cold Steel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E03vxzklfHk0 or follow Be Faced on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/befaced/ ou can find their music on Bandcamp: https://befaced.bandcamp.com/
Ghosts of the Pacific
Ghosts of the Pacific is a gritty alternative band that definitely gets it roots from the Seattle area; a band with a refreshing but familiar sound, original, groovy rock songs with great catchy hooks and a live show that's both visually and sonically entertaining.

We started out as Ashes of Mercury, which was formed in 2014. The lineup included founding members Sean and David Kebely along with Jim Reagan on vocals. The band went through various lineups while playing local clubs and bars. Francis Hunnycut was recruited to perform the bass duties and Brad Turner joined on drums to round out the lineup.

We decided to part ways with frontman Jim Reagan in the summer of 2016. After auditioning quite a few potential new singers, we finally found Josh Williams. Josh brings a very welcomed edge to our already gritty alternative Seattle sound. With the new frontman and the songs and sound evolving into something new, the band decided it would be the perfect time to change the band name. We became Ghosts of the Pacific.
In December of 2016, it was mutually decided that drummer Brad Turner would leave the band to pursue other musical interests. Michael Ball was the first drummer we auditioned that same month. He showed up completely prepared and ready to rock. He was such a good fit that we didn't feel the need to audition anyone else and he was officially named in January of 2017.

Bassist Francis Hunnycut decided it was time to move on and focus on other areas of his life that following May. Kyle McClelland filled in for a couple of shows but Francis eventually came back to rejoin the band on an interim basis until we could find a suitable replacement.

Several bassists auditioned in an attempt to fill Francis’ spot. When Tom Evans arrived for his audition and began playing with us, a wide-open pocket was created and his powerful, edgy sound was an awesome fit. Tom was officially announced as the new bassist early that September.

We released our first music video, "Human Machine", in May, 2017. We are currently in the process of recording our first studio album.
