Back Alley Pep Rally (BAPR) is a new three-piece powerhouse originating from Dayton, Ohio.
They are a band, or shall I say “force”, that is quickly making their way through the Midwest and West Coast leaving massive, loud footprints along the way.


The local metal scene has been raging in Dayton and surrounding neighborhoods, and we’re proud this month to hit you up with some more news on local metal band, From Silence To Violence!   They screamed to the top of our October Featured Band/Artist contest and snagged 2nd place for the 2nd month in a row! Talk about some fan dedication! (more…)

This month, we are proud to share with you a killer up and coming metal band out of Troy called, From Silence To Violence!  These cats stormed our September Featured Band/Artist contest with enthusiasm and snagged a 2nd place finish!

I had a chance to check this band out live earlier this year at Kuzzinz up in Troy, and let me tell you… they feasted on the energy of the crowd at that show, were crunchy and tight as hell, and they’re on the war path to blow up the Dayton area and beyond in true metal fashion!   (more…)

Today at 8PM, Dayton metalcore/post-hardcore band, Witness, are releasing their official lyric video for their single, “The Loyal Ones”, featuring Garret Rapp of The Color Morale!  They will have an EP named “Beacons” coming out later in the fall with this song on it! So if you like what you hear be sure to keep an eye out for that EP drop!  I got a special sneak preview today, and I can tell you, it is excellent!  The music quality is awesome, and the production levels on the video are pretty sweet!   I can’t wait for you to check it out!  We’ll be adding in the video link at 8PM tonight, so stay tuned!  In the meantime, you can win a free T-shirt and copy of the new single!  Click HERE for more info!

“So, It’s with a very heavy heart we have parted ways with our guitarist Josh. We had some musical differences and The way we wanted to pursue was not something he wanted personally. There are no hard feelings between us and him we are all still great friends and wish him nothing But the best in whatever he decides to do. With that being said as a band we will be searching for a new guitar player and continuing our writing of an EP And will be playing shows very soon. So if you are intrested in possibly playing for us message us or one of the members and we will give you details. Thank you all for the continued support we love you all!”

***I’m trying out what I hope will be a new feature of this page: Local Music Playlists, by genre (This is NOT a radio show)***
Check out my LOCAL METAL PLAYLIST on ReverbNation, featuring 80+ songs from 45 local metal bands! I handpicked these songs from bands so that we could enjoy hours of uninterrupted local music together, and it was really cool and reassuring to find so much good local metal!  The bands cover every spectrum of the metal genre, ranging from technical speed metal to groove metal, from death metal & black metal to thrash and hardcore rap metal and everything in between.  There is a varying degree of recording quality and volume throughout the playlist, so be warned that your ears may actually bleed at some points from some of our more brutal metal bands (at least we hope so)!  \m/

I’ll be starting a new local music playlist soon.  If you dig this idea, give this post a like and maybe comment and tell me what genre I should focus on next!
