Otherwise
Peace comes through struggle. It's a reward that's earned rather than simply given. It's the product of tireless work and an unbreakable spirit against all odds and opposition. OTHERWISE are no strangers to that struggle, rising up to become rock 'n' roll contenders in the face of a tumultuous musical climate and a series of personal hardships. The Las Vegas hard alternative rock quintet—Adrian Patrick [vocals], Ryan Patrick [guitar/vocals], Corky Gainsford [drums/vocals], Vassilios Metropoulos [bass], & Andrew Pugh [guitar/vocals]—catalog the next chapter of this journey on their second full-length album, Peace At All Costs [Century Media Records].
The ride starts with that very title. Adrian explains, "Our grandmother used to always say it. Peace At All Costs is a double entendre. We interpret the phrase as, 'Give us peace, or we'll take it from you.' The whole point of us being on this musical odyssey is our search for peace. We want to do something impactful in the world, and we're not going to stop. We're starting with ourselves first. It's about finding inner peace and restoring equilibrium within yourself. Music allows us to do that."
Their music has given countless fans worldwide the same outlet. By 2014, the band's debut True Love Never Dies moved nearly 60,000 copies and spawned close to 300,000 single sales of the hits "Soldiers," "I Don't Apologize (1000 Pictures)," and "Die For You." The group toured alongside heavy hitters such as Stone Sour, Papa Roach and Three Days Grace, and gave rousing performances at high-profile festivals including Rock On The Range, Aftershock, Rocklahoma, Carolina Rebellion, and Welcome To Rockville. However, Peace At All Costs raises the stakes across the board for the Vegas outfit.
In order to convey their message palpably and potently, OTHERWISE teamed up with iconic producer David Bottrill [Tool, Muse, Staind, Stone Sour]. Holing up in Vegas View Studios, the boys pushed themselves immensely with Bottrill's wisdom and encouragement.
"He really did contribute to the vibe of the album," Adrian goes on. "Whether it was changing the tempo from section to section or altering the key, David brought these new ideas to the fold, and you can hear them in each and every song. From top to bottom, the album has a lot of personality because of his contributions."
The musicians also had the chance to experience the other side of their hometown while recording. Vegas View Studios sits on the edge of the Las Vegas Valley, offering a stunning panorama of the wilderness surrounding the city. "It was the most beautiful view," affirms the singer. "Most recording studios are like casinos. There are no windows. You go in, and you have no idea what time it is. We had a beautiful vista of our hometown, and it lent to inspiration every night we were working." That lush expanse carries over into the first single "Darker Side of the Moon." Building from a thick distorted guitar into a robust melody, the song blasts off on a hypnotic and hard-hitting hook, opening up the doorway into Peace At All Costs.
"I've always been fascinated with the moon ever since I was a kid," affirms Adrian. "I'm still drawn to it as a grown-up. I find myself lost in it without even knowing what I'm doing sometimes. We've faced a lot of tragedies and dark times, and that song represents us. We're always going to try and look for the light in the darkness. We'll thrive there if we have to. There's a whole dark side of the moon we don't know about, and we're going to explore it. That's what's happening musically on this album."
That experimentation hits a high note during "Never Say." With its massive stadium-size refrain and rapturous instrumentation, the track brandishes undeniable universality. "It's one of two songs blatantly about romantic relationships on the album," says the vocalist. "My parents have been together for over thirty years. No matter what they go through, they refuse to walk away from each other. We completely admire our mom and dad and that loyalty. My brother and I have brought that into our own relationships. I have someone in my life who has helped pull me out of the emotional abyss I was in. She's shown me what it's like to be happy again. I don't want to be the one to say goodbye."
At the same time, the album still delivers a distinct wallop on the pummeling, riff-driven opener "Love & War," co-written with songwriters Julien Jorgensen and Matty McCloskey. Seesawing between a guillotine-sharp guitar and a distinct groove, it explodes on impact. "The guitar was just nasty," smiles Adrian. "The melody came right out. I was arguing with my girlfriend at the time, and it shaped the lyrics and subject matter of the song."
Ultimately, OTHERWISE do achieve Peace At All Costs, and they hope you will too. He concludes, "Our main goal is for people to feel hope. We attempted to do that on True Love Never Dies. We want to continue that fight on this and subsequent albums. There are so many emotions in life. You're not just always angry, happy, or sad. When the dark moments come, you just have to stay strong within yourself and you can make it through. We need to stay hopeful together. That's the point."

Righteous Vendetta
Righteous Vendetta
For many in the heavy music scene, Righteous Vendetta needs little introduction. With two full length records under their belt along with numerous tours with a show history just over 800 shows in the past 4 years, Righteous Vendetta has amassed fans in the US and abroad while honing their performance skills to a fine edge. The Wyoming-based group's tight, technical brand of metalcore has earned them a great deal of respect as well as publicity, with features in publications such as HM, Amp, Hails and Horns, and AP. Most recently, they embarked on a European tour with veterans Spoken and Inhale Exhale, hitting half a dozen countries across central and eastern Europe. Meanwhile, Righteous Vendetta's single 'This Pain' spent 15 weeks in the top 20 on Billboard's Christian Rock chart, achieving commercial success rarely seen by bands who cut their teeth in the hardcore and metal scene, while also signaling a new creative direction for the band's upcoming release. Look for new material from Righteous Vendetta in spring 2013.

LUGOSI
BIOGRAPHY:
1. Noun: Hungarian-born American actor known for portraying long lasting performances in horror films.

2. Noun: Lugosi is an American rock band formed the 7th of July, 2011. Rising from the ashes of a sun-baked environment, Oz, the band's founding member, pulled together the most ambitious rock 'n roll vamps to create a juggernaut to be reckoned with. AJ, Oz, Wayne and Michael have become willing slaves to the beckoning monster called Lugosi. This is a band that blends the difficult with the obscure, the sexy with the hard core, the metal with the soul and a whole lot of attitude. If you want to listen to the same old familiar style of live entertainment, this is not the band for you. If you want an arena feeling show and have a need to get your ass rocked to songs you can't gt out of your head, we give you Lugosi...

ANTHONY JAMES "AJ" FRATTO: Vocals
Led by former Queensryche "American Soldier", this beast from the east is the live wire that spearheads Lugosi. The infectious compatibility between my bandmates and myself are apparent through our motivational music. I feed off their onslaught and proceed to embrace anything that crosses my path. Emotionally driven, AJ's heart and soul set the standard as a conscientious showman. I live for the crowd; we together are active participants in this beautiful assembly of sound. I consider our band to be "the peoples champ". After all, the people are what it's all about. I'm so proud they allow us to be a representative of their culture and spirit. We will NOT let them down.

CHRIS 'OZ' OSBOURNE: Guitar
Chris Osbourne is the blazing guitarist of Lugosi. Nicknamed Oz, he is a man of many hats, playing just about any lick on his beloved instrument. Heavily influenced by the likes of Randy Rhodes and Edward Van Halen, Oz's ability to play is flawless. His 'can do' attitude makes him a comfortable band mate and a crowd favorite. Oz brings a flood of power and color to the already high octane level present in the band. His ability to enhance the bands groove and play outside the box is infectious.

WAYNE VANNOY: Bass
Since his days as a kid, Wayne was programmed to attack an audience with his bass guitar. His locked and loaded, rock n' roll style of bass playing now woven into the Lugosi fabric of sound, Wayne Vannoy is a definite presence that cannot be ignored. Stalking every part of the stage to interact with all of the fans. The monstrous growling of low end he conjures up provides the perfect layer of thickness to rumble the crowd into a rock 'n roll frenzy. When each show is done, the lights fade and the curtain draws to a close, only then does Wayne feel his sense of accomplishment, but this passion will need to be fed again.

MICHAEL LUKERS: Drums
Known for his technical and visually explosive performances, Michael was born to perform live! Michael is an artist that makes a conscious effort to bring the live shows to a boiling point. Lugosi plays songs people cannot believe they are hearing again. You won't be able to get these out of your head after you hear how we break them down and revamp them. I like performing live with these guys. We click together our unique aura's to create one beast! Michael's kits, through the years, have definitely been designed for a Rock 'n Roll effect. If Lugosi can get the crowd singing and into the groove of a song, then we've done our best! Always strive...
