Featured EPK Bio/Review: Chicago-Based Centaurus



If metal is your religion, Centaurus is your instrumental church. Built on the foundation of guitar riffs, the pillars stretch to the sky and overtake all that lies ahead with inhumanly fast drum beats and an eclectic mix of music influences that almost sound like world music one minute, with  traces of melodic metal as fun to listen to as pop, as well as tracks from tried and true heavy, progressive music. You could almost say it sounds like metal music- except on steroids with a cork bat.

It is everything imagination deems allowable- it's dark, heavy, melodic and live shows with the band are like sitting down to a giant table of your favorite foods- there is literally a feast of sounds and musicianship. Unparalleled in effort, the band developed their songs and sound when they were unfortunate (or fortunate) in not finding a singer.

Undaunted, they continued writing and stumbled upon a method of working that allowed all four members (two of which are brothers) who all take pride in the band as one musical family, to build a detailed tapestry of sound that is a mix of influences including Type O Negative, Devil Doll, Squarepusher, Bjork, Faith No More, Radiohead, Tchaikovsky, Muse, Alice in Chains and Dream Theater, among others.

“Centaurus creates sounds you've never heard before...a criminally tight band.”
  -The Chicago Music Player

PhotobucketThe band uses loops of sound to build layers and has played Chicago venues including Reggie's Rock Club, Futon Fest in Illinois and has performed alongside such acts as the internationally popular death metal band, Katatonia.

“When some musicians got frustrated with how much rock music was following certain rules, they channeled that frustration into different avenues of music leading to all different kinds of metal. I feel as though that it's an ongoing process and it will continue.  They'll just give it another name,” says Greg (bass).

Maselbas (guitar) adds, “We are trying to do something different from what the Chicago metal scene is used to, so that throws a lot of ideas out right there. We are picky about what we like, but consistently come up with new material." Centaurus is currently seeking tour opportunities to travel in support of their first full-length album, “Pulse.”

The unmistakable Centaurus sound is brought to you by Michael Maselbas (Guitars), Phil Hardman (Drums), Ryan Bruchert (Guitar/Leads), Greg Bruchert (Bass).

Nino Arobelidze Creates New Crossroads Between Pop, Jazz, Soul and Damn Good Beat Boxing with NOMAD

Nino’s new album excels at the art of being classy, subtle and cutting edge. The U.S. musician and vocalist, who grew up overseas in the country of Georgia, represents rhythmic and lyrical exploration. Perhaps traveling the globe contributed to the adventure and beauty of bridging pop, jazz, soul and beautiful beat boxing. It is a triumph of the merging of genres from many countries, as well as the U.S. Listeners of smooth jazz, R&B, hip hop, EDM, genuine rock and roll and spoken word can all light candles together. Layers of sounds become clouds that float over traditional boundaries, and merge together joyously. Colors are bright. Thoughts are free and relaxing, with flavorful bends and turns. With her springy, curly hair and smiling eyes, she remains uplifting, artistic and wise. A fan explains the magnetic lure as “enchanting as the sirens of lore, revealing her soft, beguiling smile…[Nino’s music] teaches and we are eager students.” How did she achieve sounding unique but remark…

Revelatory Night of Pop/Folk with Sarah Eide and Jan Seides Sat 10/1/16 (Chicago)

Songwriters Sarah Eide and Jan Seides bring a revelatory pop/folk music to Uncommon Ground 1401 W. Devon, Saturday October 1 at 9:00pm. The pairing is a unique blend with some exciting contrasts.Sarah Eide has been carving a name in the Chicago music scene over the past few years, although she originally hails from the East coast. Performing with percussionists, guitarists and a full band make each show a flavorful adventure. At this show, her cinematic and intricate piano work will be accented by James Abud, multi-instrumentalist based in Chicago. Visceral sensitivity, wrapped in bold song titles like “Forgiveness” and “Challenge & Victory”, is the key to her trademark sound: introspection with great musicality.
Comparable to Laura Nyro, a pianist/composer from the 60’s soul-folk underground, Eide also has a swinging rock piano style and intellectually satisfying arrangements. While Nyro comes off as vulnerable at times, Eide has a steadfast, empowering vibe along with sweet appro…

New Bio for Jane Thatcher

OnAxis Music recently completed a new bio for Jane Thatcher a CAUDog Recording Artist. I really enjoyed interviewing Jane and learning more about her life. We all have such interesting stories to tell! OnAxis is also working with Jane on a blog about helping young girls buck social pressures and achieve great things. In the meantime...


Jane Thatcher is a whirling dervish of dreamy pop with firecracker-like spunk and kinetic stage energy. With one taste of her chocolate-flavored voice, foot-stomping rhythms and heartfelt lullabies, you'll see why she stirs the souls of audiences at large clubs and intimate stages.

Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah her musical accomplishmets have spread like wildfire once landing in Chicago. Highlights include large festivals and venues including Widow's Peak, Lincoln Hall and Loyola University-- in addition she's created a professional music video for the song “Good Reasons” and an new full-length album with CAUDog Recor…
