Sworn us Under
Heavy Metal Band “SWORN US UNDER” is a fresh sound of Metal Riffs and Daunting Vocals with a taste of Headbanging Grooves and a touch of Lead Playing Finesse from Guitar Duo Dean Mestas and Chris Gordon. Sharing the Syncopated and often times Melodic, ear-friendly experience are: Josh Bambino on Drums, Lala B on Bass Guitar and Dante Henderson on Vocals. The band has been together for 8 years. They have earned a following in their native Grand Junction, Colorado sharing the stage with big name acts such as Hatebreed, OTEP, Hemlock, Iced Earth, Cephalic Carnage, Powerman 5000 and From Sword to Sunrise. The band has gained local awareness in part thanks to an appearance in local Tattoo Artist’s Paul Roberts and Tattmandu Tattoo Shop’s T.V. Commercial. After several successful live shows the owners of the Tattoo Shop approached Sworn Us Under with their interest in working with the band on the Commercial. The band now enjoys permanent sponsorship's with Paul Roberts and Steve Clayton Picks.
Along, with the T.V. appearances and numerous Live Shows, the band gets regular airplay and has has been interviewed by local Alternative Radio Station 91.3 KMSA and Hardrockradiolive.com. Both stations have actively promoted, advertised, and supported Sworn Us Under from the start. Most recently supported by killtrendradio.com and X106.9 KMZK.
With a hard working attitude and dedication to their craft, Sworn Us Under is ready to unleash their Unique Metal Sound for the Masses!!
Saphyre Rain
Saphyre Rain
The 21st century sees the human race facing a suicide epidemic and raging self harm statistics. Open any newspaper, watch any nightly news report and you're surrounded with stories of addiction, abuse, neglect, fear, and pain. In your heart, you ask all the hard questions – Is this darkness taking over?

Saphyre Rain wants to remind the world that hope is alive.

Saphyre Rain is husband and wife team, Austin and Amanda Harras. Spending the last few months creating their debut EP Break the Cycle with producer Nick Sullivan, the duo has crafted a cutting rock sound that is inviting and inspiring.

Located in Northern Colorado, the two co-compose their material, with Austin as drummer and Amanda as vocalist/guitars. Released in October 2015, Break the Cycle (single Live) is characterized by driving metallic beats, dark guitar-riff tonality, and sincere melodic colors.

“Our generation is at a huge risk. There are so many kids out there who want to make a difference in our world, and we all struggle with pain in one form or another. Now is the time to fight back. Each and every one of us is making a difference in our world; we do have the power to change it for the better”, says Saphyre Rain.

In 2012, the couple self-produced a full length album, UnSaid I Love You's, recorded in a home-studio with their previous band, Suffocation in my Silence. October of 2014 saw Austin and Amanda taking a new direction, starting a project called “Saphyre Rain”. The band name was chosen based on the formation of the sapphire gemstone. A sapphire is created over time, under intense heat and pressure. Whatever 'impurities' are present at the time of formation result in the sapphire's final color.

“We wanted to have a metaphoric name for the band to encompass the idea that beautiful things come from the pain that we go through; essentially, that there is hope even in the darkness”, says Amanda.

With the expertise of producer Nick Sullivan, Austin and Amanda began the pre-production process for an EP at Consonance Productions in Denver, late 2014. The couple put focus on compelling song writing and branching out artistically and creatively. Amanda began experimenting with adding lead guitar parts to the song structures and composing bass lines; while Austin worked to tighten the drum parts and implement technical patterns. Andrew Whiteman of Red Tide Rising and Nick Sullivan played bass tracks on the Break the Cycle EP.

The vision behind Saphyre Rain is to tell our generation of the light, through music. We want every person that we come into contact with to know: you are loved, your life is precious, and your story is a critical element to the future.
