Church of Misery
A respected 70s rooted Doom band founded in 1996 by bassist Tatsu Mikami, an ex member of Thrash Metal band SALEM, and guitarist Tomohiro Nishimura. Making up the band numbers would be singer Nobukazu Chow and drummer Hideki Shimizu. CHURCH OF MISERY dwell lyrically almost obsessively on the subject of serial killers but show their obvious debt of gratitude to 70s Rock with frequent cover versions. Church of Misery allied itself with Sourvein for UK and European concerts throughout October 2006.
The Atomic Bitchwax
The Atomic Bitchwax
The Atomic Bitchwax is an American "Super Stoner Rock" band from Long Branch N.J. formed in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik, guitarist Ed Mundell and drummer Keith Ackerman. Atomic Bitchwax mixes elements of 60s psychedelic rock and 70s riff rock, filtered though modern progressive rock. Their music has appeared in popular TV shows including Jackass, Home Wrecker and various Fox Sports broadcasts.The group originated as a jam band playing local bars in the New Jersey and New York area. This lineup released two full length records, the self-titled debut in 1999, and Atomic Bitchwax 2 in 2000 via Tee-Pee Records. In addition, they released the Spit Blood EP in 2002 via the Meteor City Label.

Ed was replaced in 2005 by guitarist/vocalist Finn Ryan (formerly of Core). The band focused on writing and touring for a year before entering Trax East Studios in South River, New Jersey to record their follow up, aptly titled 3. The 2005 release included two European and North American tours, along with a visit to Seattle's "Sound House" to record the 2006 EP, Boxriff. Engineered by Jack Endino, the EP included a DVD of live show filmed in Seattle's Sunset Tavern.

Current Monster Magnet drummer Bob Pantella joins the band in 2007 and Atomic Bitchwax commenced more touring. The year concluded with the recording and release of the full-length album 4 on Teepee and Meteor City. In 2011, the band released The Local Fuzz, one 42 minute track with over 50 riffs back-to-back. The band spent 2012-2015 touring Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland,Spain,Portugal,Austria and North America.

The bands sixth full length "Gravitron" was released April 21, 2015 on TeePee Records NYC
