After one listen to A HERO A FAKE their catchy melodic elements stick inside your head, while the unpredictable transitions from hardcore to progressive metal keep you actively wondering where the music will take you next. Aptly titled Volatile, their album aims to push the boundaries of the metal/hardcore genres with complex instrumental compositions that are complimented with crushing screams an
d inspiring anthems.

Most artists can agree that being in a full-time band can be hard enough, but add a full-time school schedule on top of that and it is nearly impossible. However, A HERO A FAKE have endured even with four members wrapping up their college careers and two finishing up high school. “The last four years have quite honestly been the most stress-filled times of our lives. It’s hard enough to do well in school or music, but doing both took every ounce of focus and energy we could exert,” stated Morgan. Instead of letting the demands of education impede their creative capacity, they used it as inspiration for material.

With the guidance of producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, SECRET LIVES OF THE FREEMASONS, He Is Legend), A HERO A FAKE have constructed a multi-layered, heartfelt journey through the emotions that humanity must undergo. “No matter what genre, people are drawn to music with energy, whether it is emotional, physical, or philosophical,” said Brown. It’s a steadfast belief that A HERO A FAKE prove with their stunning debut Volatile.
Deception Of A Ghost
Deception Of A Ghost
We are not a band that approaches politics or a certain political stance on things. For the most part some of us have no such stance. We're not a part of bullhorn preaching or religion. If you get a sense of spiritual inspiration from our songs then great. If you get a feeling of personal encouragement then we are all for that. But our goal is not to persuade you to think a certain way. Our goal isn't to try and make you believe in a God or follow a particular way of life. You do not have to claim a certain group or affiliation to fit in. There are many messages concerning politics, Christianity, atheism, vegan, etc., and that's great they are out there. These are the people doing exactly what we aim to tell others to do. We want you to follow your dreams and your heart excluding what others close to you may think or say. Your life is just that. It's yours. Live it for you and no one else. Our goal is simply to let you know there is never any fitting mold and if this band does anything for you we hope that it encourages you to think for yourself and voice your ideas. With timeless efforts we will tell you to step outside of following mindless and careless lifestyles and be you. And to never let anything stand in your way of doing so. That we are all individuals and we need to embrace something so valuable. With that being said we are Deception Of A Ghost.

A sleepy, middle-class suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina dominated by Nascar fans and country living is not typical breeding grounds for a promising alternative rock band. But the five young musicians of Carson and their aggressive but catchy melodic rock music don’t exactly fit this Southern mold either. Ben, Taisha, Peter, Spencer and Shaun, all out-of-state transplants, bonded in high schoo
l over their mutual love for all things music, including writing and performing. Drummer Ben and guitarist Peter met first playing in a short-lived garage band. When that group disbanded, Ben snagged fellow student Taisha whose smooth, soaring vocals had already gained her some local notoriety. These three began writing and recording original material under the name Carson, which quickly racked up plays on their Myspace page. Fate stepped in when lead-guitarist Shaun found these demos online and messaged the band. One jam session later and it was clear that Shaun’s blues-tinged, experimental lead guitar melodies were a perfect fit. Local bassist Spencer and his magic fingers completed the line-up a few weeks later and Carson as it stands today emerged.

Carson has come a long way since their formation in 2009. With each new song, their signature sound becomes more mature and focused, fusing choppy guitar riffs, groovy bass lines, intricate drum patterns and gutsy vocals. Playing dozens of shows throughout North and South Carolina has honed their live show into an effortless performance well beyond the band’s relatively young age. They’ve shared the stage with such acts as Irival, Jonas Sees in Color, Automatic Love Letter, Divided By Friday and Thursday. Carson has built up a legion of close fans through their presence on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and new website carsonrock.com. Street teams have formed in numerous cities around the US and Carson’s reach has even extended into places like Bahrain, Mexico, the Philippines, and the United Kingdom. In early 2011, Carson’s hard work and dedication paid off when they recorded their first EP with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Alesana). These five diverse songs showcase seasoned song-writing mixed with youthful energy.

In july 2011, Carson won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands for their region and performed on the Ernie Ball Stage at Vans Warped Tour 2011. Carson plans to spend the rest of the year writing, touring, and spreading their music to a wider audience. One thing is for sure, with their combination of hard work and natural talent, Carson will be a major player in the future music movement.
