BillXNye are a three piece (sometime 4 or 5 piece) grind/power science hardcore metal sometimes experimental noise improvisational group.  The core concept behind the band and their music is science and facts over faith.  Their songs are intense, noisy, dense layered and very challenging to the listener.  They have multpile eps available on their bandcamp site and on mini discs available at their shows.  They're very smart and passionate about what they are doing.  Get in touch with them through their Facebook page and have them come play your town.  They are currently working on booking a small tour so get into it and get at them.  Hail Sagan!

Poor Lily are a Punk/Hardcore "all male power trio" from the Bronx, NY.  The band consists of Adam-Bass and Vocals, Max-Guitar, and Dom-Drums.  Their music is a chaotic mix of time signatures, speed, and screeching guitar.  At first listen they come off as a bunch of guys just making noisy music and having a good time but that's only half the story with this band.  If you dig deeper you will find songs about a world spinning out of control and a government gone berzerk.  At the center of this sonic whirlwind are three experienced and talented musicians working very hard to make it all appear effortless.
