Friday Night Videos: Special Edition--The Bands of Voodoo Queen Management Friday Feb, 21st 2014

So for this special edition of Friday Night Videos I present to you 
an intro that I made just for tonight's show.
Check it out below:

First let me tell you why this week's show will only consist of Voodoo Queen Management bands I have been working with Yvonne Loveland and the great staff for have become more than just people I work with through the wires of the internet and all the focus of bringing attention to the bands on the roster and having more people across this great globe also enjoying what each band has to offer.
Lets get this started shall we?
First band is:

**VIRUCIDE - St. Louis Groove Metal**

A Band Just As Unique As The Genre They Fit Into. GROOVE METAL. It Is Just What It Says: Metal That Makes You Groove and Bang Your Head In Unison and Rhythm. Metal That Hits Your Soul and Moves You. Metal You Can Feel and Relate To. Metal That Starts A Revolution. Pure Music. Pure Struggle. Pure Feeling. So Join the Revolution and Spread the Infection That is VIRUCIDE!
Thanks For the Support and We Will See You All Out There!

They have a concert coming up this Monday and here is the info on that.

Here are some of their pages of course all of these bands are on the Voodoo Queen Management's website which I will share the link at the bottom of this page for more info and current up to date tours etc for all the bands on tonight's show.

This is a song from 2011 but still one of the bands songs.

Next we have:
D-Railed was formed in early Spring 2005. By that Summer of 2005 the original line up was performing live and getting great responses in St.Louis. By winter 2005 the band had its first EP "Screams of Innocence" ready to record. In early 2006 the band hooked up with Steve Ewing (The Urge) to produce the recording sessions. The freshman EP went on to sell over 1,000 copies. The follow up sophomore EP -"The Fallen" - was recorded in 2008 at Trailer Studios with former Modern Day Zero members at the helm. "The Fallen" was pushed to over 200 radio stations in 2009 by Randy Sadd of Protocol Entertainment with many positive results, including reaching no. 1 in several college, internet and smaller radio stations across the country.
In 2011 the band travelled to Boston to record 3 new songs with producer David Adam Monroe. With his unorthodox style of producing David was able to challenge the guys and push them further to do something truly great. D-Railed hit the road in late 2011 and continued to tour all the way through 2012. Including coast to coast roadtrips and many, many weekend trips.. This was possible largely because the band had found a true manager in 2011, Yvonne Loveland. With Voodoo Queen Management behind them they keep picking up steam and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon . D-Railed has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many big name acts including Static-X, Otep, Breaking Benjamin, Seether and many others.

The selection of D-Railed for tonight's show was just by fluke really there was no picking through the bands it was just they were at the top of the list that I have for my VQM music files and would have kept going had nothing worked with the images, but that being said from here on  out as I present the Friday Night Videos each week now, regardless of whether or not there is a VQM band on the list of videos I will have an intro each week now including a segment of a song from one of the bands.

The next band is non other than:

From their Reverb Nation page.

The nights moon souls of the dead dreams of the living and the power of music gives us SAENCE. This heavy, ambient, dark rock band is based just outside of St. Louis and consists of four members SAENCE'S music is used as a powerful medium to communicate with the unliving.
Born of smoke and shadows, Saences music is a twisted journey through cloaked memories and stark realities. The raw, intricate guitar work and melodic throbbing drums blend effortlessly with provoking lyrics to paint a rich portrait of mysticism, lifes daily struggles, and the often painful choices required to overcome those struggles. Far from depressing, Saences heavy, ambient sound is the perfect backdrop for the uncovering what lies ahead on the journey through modern life.
Formed in 2007, Saence has toured the Midwest, playing to crowds of thousands at events like PointFest and shared the stage with the industrys biggest names, such as Staind, Hollywood Undead, and Shinedown. With a dynamic and unforgettable stage show, the bands performances highlight the dedication and craftsmanship that these professional musicians have committed to their art.

This is another band that has some very strong vocal arrangements and some great music that moves past the modern rock song and is indeed somewhat haunting in some of the songs.


Then we have another one of our bands here:


The Chicago-based dark metal band URN® is one on a musical journey exploring the darker aspects of both the conscious mind and the unconscious soul. The band has been captivating audiences across multiple genres and have been establishing themselves as one the more energetic live acts to see. The band has drawn comparisons by national trade media to such artists such as Type O Negative, Lacuna Coil, Amorphis, Nightwish, My Dying Bride and other similar acts that tend to find a certain beauty in darkness. URN’s line-up is consisted of well-traveled veterans of various national and international acts. 

Last but not least here is the newest member to the roster:
Beauty In The Suffering

"Artist & producer DieTrich Thrall is known among industrial-metal fans for his work in the band Marazene (also known as Marazene Machine), who scored a hit with their extreme cover of Motley Crüe's “Live Wire” in 2011. Since then, Thrall has formed a new supergroup dubbed Beauty In The Suffering, featuring an ever-expanding lineup that includes veterans from American Head Charge, Dope, Genitorturers, Skinlab, Razorblade Dolls and many more.

For their first outing as a new band, Thrall and team decided to adopt a horror motif, beginning with the track “The Crazies (The Zombie Song),” which is no doubt influenced by the horror classics of George A. Romero – not just the film of the same name, but his beloved Dead saga as well.

“The Crazies” is the first of three zombie-themed songs to be incorporated into a long-form music video conceived by Thrall (which is currently in production), and you'll be hearing more about [the] project soon." - Gregory Burkart (

Above is a link to their website that has all their other social media pages as well.

"Beauty In The Suffering is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds.

Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.

Beauty In The Suffering deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph.

Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow, little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and -

The Beauty We Glean From The Suffering We Have Endured Can NEVER Be Denied..

This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges.

And, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff."
