Scourge

The Scourge (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/thescourge666/

The Scourge are an independent heavy metal band from Houston, Texas rooted in the old school melodic sensibility of European bands such as Rage and Helloween while simultaneously wrecking necks with their US inspired thrash riffage in the vein of Testament and classic Megadeth.

 

Killer Hearts (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/KillerHeartsOfficial/

 TKH – featuring members of Electric Frankenstein, Texas Terri & The Stiff Ones, Down & Dirties and The Wrong Ones
“Killer Hearts are a searing rock n roll band from Houston. – These guys are impressive to see live and they have the rock ‘n’ roll power ” -David Garrick, FPH

Hell’s Engine (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/HellsEngineRocks/

Under dogs of the scene with a very big, nasty bite…. These four Houston punk rock n’ rollas originally formed in 2004, and after both a hiatus and some restructuring, reformed in 2015. With only a self-titled demo recording to claim, they’ve recently hit the studio and released a new EP. If that’s not enough, their single “Chopper Slut” will be released on a 7-inch vinyl split with New Jersey’s Electric Frankenstein on Self Destructo records this fall, 2016. With influences like Turbonegro, Motorhead and D.R.I…… Hell’s Engine will surely not be running low on fuel anytime soon.
