NAME Currently Streaming New Album

[Press Release]

Californian extreme experimental metal newcomers NAME have posted almost all tracks taken from their upcoming Lifeforce Records debut "Internet Killed The Audio Star" on their Myspace.

Merging unparalleled musical bravery, flawless execution, and an angular landscape of forward-thinking ideas, one inspired Bay Area-California band has crystallized on the dead soil of music as art, that band being NAME. In an industry overrun by a sea of carbon copies, NAME faces the stampede with words sharp and ready, with an aesthetic, cerebral kick to the head.

Aside from their fierce ability and creative dedication, there's something about NAME that begins with a curiosity, summons intrigue, but festers into an all-out fascination as the sounds and colors fly by. Not unlike a mathematical equation gone haywire amidst a landscape of experimentation, NAME present their utterly stunning debut full length record entitled “Internet Killed The Audio Star”, consisting of calculus-inspired collections of ravaging vocals intertwined with brutally vicious riffs, jazz and blues accompaniments and mind expanding beats!

Founded in 2003 by brothers Wes and Jeremy Fareas, the "New Approach to Martyrs Expressions" (N.A.M.E.), is an amalgam of experimental tech metal, grindcore, ambient sounds, freeform jazz, blues, cultural world music, an odd sense of humor, and maniacal mood swings. Known for their chaotic energy, Name breathes vivid new life onto the stage. Name steps out of the confines of the expected, swearing to the sense of bedlam in art that is currently left abandoned.

"Music isn't supposed to be safe, it's meant to catapult you into a risky situation," says Wes of NAME, "We want to revive danger in art. We're trying to show that as much as possible." What is further promising is the band’s ability to survive and evolve when reality deals the worst of hands.

Having survived member changes, theft, a freeway accident on tour in which the band’s van rolled down a steep hill 7 times, and the ensuing hospitalization; the passion prevails. With personality and passion in the portrayal of art, Name restores honesty in music.

With a few EPs, a full length album (‘Portrait’, 2004) and all new genre-bending material for their Lifeforce 2010 debut, "Internet Killed The Audio Star" which is set for a late summer release, Name have set out to remold all the stagnant preconceptions of heavy music. Vicious, progressive, passionate, and thoroughly unpredictable…witness what a group of artists are capable of feeling.

*For Fans of Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried and Me, Candiria and Converge.
