Bursting onto the scene in the late 80s, Vain made waves and appeared on the covers of some of rock and metal's most respected magazines before they even signed a record deal. While toting similar edgy apparel to current glam metal contemporaries, Vain's MO in the Bay Area scene was having actual substance to their music rather than churning out the same three recycled chords like so many rip off bands were making money doing. Guitarist/Vocalist Davy Vain founded Vain in 1986 in San Francisco, CA, after recording a demo in the studio that was produced by Metalica's Kirk Hammett. The songs hit hard and the recording captured the intensity of Davy's unique vocal style. With demo tape in hand, Davy set out to put together a band that could take over the world. Each band member was selected for their looks, musical chops and their belief in Davy's vision of what the band would be all about.

Tyla's Dogs D'amour
The Dogs D'Amour were unleashed onto an unsuspecting and somewhat mediocre UK music scene during the mid 1980s. With their ramshackle pirate-meets-Dickens style, they pioneered a unique mixture of glam punk and stonesy rock n roll. They sang songs about sweet sorrows and told torrid tales of destruction - all perpetuated by their 'do-or-die' attitude. The band went on hiatus in 2002, but lead singer Tyla has kept the Dogs alive, working as a soloist writing and releasing new material.

Flamboyant Finnish four-piece, fronted by golden-maned Viking and love-god singer Olli Herman. these rockers burst spectacularly onto the UK scene in 2010. The band started their career with the name Reckless Life, under which they initially played covers of Guns N' Roses. Owing more to thrash than sleaze, at times they're 70% Metallica and 20% Skid Row. Expect a diet of sex, drugs & Reckless Love.

Daxx & Roxane
Screeching guitars and soaring vocals, Daxx & Roxane is outright raw Hard Rock. Hailing from Montreux, Switzerland, the band roots itself in the old school rock and metal of the likes of Motörhead, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Their strength resides in the passion and energy they deliver onstage, and in the sheer power of their sound, mixing the hard rock attitude to the savageness of heavy metal, defining their sound as 'hard and heavy'.

Knock Out Kaine
Somewhere back in time a bunch of reprobates known as Knock Out Kaine won Kerrang's Best New Unsigned Act. This was their first official acknowledgement that possibly they had more to offer than singalongs in a boozy backstreet bar in Lincoln. Followed up with KKKK live reviews in Kerrang! magazine, an eye-opening jaunt through Europe with Adler's Appetite (featuring Steven Adler of Guns N Roses infamy) and all culminating with an appearance at Download Festival & Special Guests to Status Quo.
