The Devil Wears Prada are a Christian metalcore 6-piece from Ohio. Denying they named themselves after the film title, lead singer Mike Hranica said "We believe it to mean that possessions don't matter at all. When standing before God, he won't care about your sweet Prada scarf or Gucci shoes or whatever. It's a Christian reasoning for the name." The band are one of the most potent and powerful bands in modern American metal, combining technical metal, hardcore and infectious melodies with ever engaging live shows.
Four piece Gideon are an aggressive, melodic hardcore band with an already impressive repertoire. Well-placed gang vocals and a powerful front man set Gideon apart from many of their peers, while the band as a whole, whose members have been playing together only since 2008, come off sounding like seasoned pros.
