ORGY emerged in the Goth music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of ‘Blue Monday’. The track sold over 1 million copies and built a worldwide audience for the brand. In late 2005, after the release of the D1 Music and Associates Punk Statik Paranoia PSP and their D1 Music /DLC Records Independent “TRANS GLOBAL SPECTACLE” DVD promotional tour the band went on a hiatus to work on their side projects.
In 2011, after seven years of demand from fans for new music and a tour, founding member Jay Gordon (vocals) decided it was time to kick things back up and begin recording and touring again in support of ORGY’s fans.
Born in San Francisco, CA, Jay Gordon was heavily influenced by music from a young age. After playing bass for several years and working as a producer and engineer on several albums (including Coal Chamber’s self-titled album and others), Jay was introduced to four other musicians who, with him, would eventually form ORGY. After establishing themselves in the scene, the band was noticed by Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis and signed to Elementree/Reprise records.
Motograter was formed in 1995 and is most well known for their namesake instrument the “Motograter”, a mysterious contraption designed with industrial cable, guitar pieces, and other components, to create a unique, low, distorted bass sound. The band is widely known for their image, notorious for covering themselves in tribal style body paint. The early stages of the group’s career consisted of heavy experimentation with industrial sounds, samples, and tribal drums. The band released two EP’s ‘Hugh Chardon’ and ‘Indy’ and in 2001 were signed to Sever Records, founded by Dez Fafara of Coal Chamber. The band’s sound continued to evolve, eventually incorporating a dark, groove-oriented guitar styling, that would help broaden the band’s appeal and reach a wider audience. In 2003, the band inked a deal with No Name/Elektra Records and released the highly acclaimed. self-titled album, ‘Motograter’, featuring Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch/Ghost Machine) on vocals. The song “Suffocate” was featured on the soundtrack to the film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The song “Down” is featured on the EA Sports video game Nascar Thunder 2004. Motograter toured on Ozzfest 2003. Motograter has toured with Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Chevelle, Disturbed, Ministry, Nothingface, Kittie, Mushroomhead, Cradle of Filth, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, Voivod, and many more.
Motograter recently performed Knotfest 2014, alongside Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Danzig, Anthrax, and more; followed by National Tours with ILL NINO, DOPE, FLAW, AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE, AND HED PE.
Brand of Julez
When you think of the South Bronx, you don’t think of modern, melodic rock anthems, passionately aggressive vocals, heavy guitars, ripping solos, driving bass lines or pounding drums fills. However, that is exactly what Brand of Julez delivers night after night.
Formed by brothers Julez Zamora(vocals/guitars) and Brandon Zamora(bass/backing vocals) in 2011 at the ripe old age of 16 and 13, Brand of Julez have raged their way up the NYC ranks with a passion and fury that cannot be denied. With the release of their debut EP in September 2012, Brand of Julez have relentlessly worked to bring their brand of heavy rock to the masses with incendiary performances at legendary venues like Webster Hall (The Studio, The Marlin Room & The Grand Ballroom), The Gramercy Theatre, The Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, Irving Plaza and Starland Ballroom. Their powerful performances have brought them to share the stage with recording artists like Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Ace Frehley, Drowning Pool, Adrenaline Mod, Burn Halo, Orianthi, Alice Cooper and Full Devil Jacket.
.In 2016, Brand of Julez began working on recording new tracks. Working with the engineering talents of Joey Z (guitarist for Life of Agony), the mixing talents of Mike Ferretti at Architekt Music (Sevendust) and mastering perfection of Andy Van Dette at Engine Room Audio (Sevendust, Muse, Rush) led Brand of Julez to their self-produced debut album FORWARD, which is currently being planned for June 3rd 2018 release. In the winter of 2017 brand of Julez would find its missing piece to complete the four band line up, drummer Frankie D’esposito from Ronkonkoma Long Island. Frankie brings energy, power, style, showmanship, and family that’s been missing from the band. Now with Brand of Julez complete, they move FORWARD into the national spotlight. Brand of Julez are ready to deliver their heavy rage of rock that will have you banging your head, with your horns raised and leave you with songs that you’ll be singing long after the show has ended.
