Formed in the winter of 2015, The Whelming Waters began when three high school
friends John, Collin, and Nina, decided to start a folk trio consisting of mandolin, guitar, and violin. However, when the songwriting quickly started to expand, and with the introduction of two new members in the form of Collin’s older sister Kelcie and her
husband, Jereme, the group suddenly became a rock band with a wide variety of
musical styles and a “no rules” attitude when it comes to songwriting or genre

Their music is characterized by everything from catchy melodies to aching harmonies
and ranges from raucous horn-laden romps to heartfelt country ballads; all combined
with thoughtful lyrics and a healthy dose of humor. With the addition of more friends in the form of a second saxophone player, Andy, and Kristen on keys, the band’s sonic

Xander Demos is a high-energy rock and metal guitar player from Pittsburgh, PA. He is fueled by the passion to create melodic songs ranging from rock and metal genres to pop and ambient. Xander normally is associated with the rock and metal world but his versatility allows him to be comfortable in many forms of music.

Xander grew up in the decade of decadance and has been a big fan of everything from pop-metal, Top-40, thrash metal, progressive rock and even dance-related music. As long as there was a hook or a melody, he picked up on it. Xander's main influences are Shawn Lane, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Vinnie Moore, Guthrie Govan, Jason Becker, Neal Schon, Micheal Romeo and John Sykes. In the early days, he was fortunate to have some teachers whom he respected and had given him great tools by which to hone his fluid technique. Some of these players include Ralph Santolla (ex-Deicide, Obituary), Dallas Perkins (M.I. Instructor) and currently Derryl Gabel.

Xander's playing style ranges from the beautifully melodic to the jaw-dropping insane. His playing encompasses much of what he has learned and absorbed from other players over the years. His melodies are the kind you can hum along to. He is releasing the full-length follow-up to his EP "Road To Guitarcadia", an instructional DVD, working with his three bands playing live every weekend and is now accepting guitar students for in-person and online lessons.

2011 had been a good year and Xander is currently building on that momentum for 2012. Make sure you check the news page as well as his Facebook page which gives constant news about his musical activities.

Terror Garden is an American hard rock/heavy metal band from Long Island,
NY, citing influences ranging from 1970's classic hard rock to today's modern
metal scene. Paul Terror and Gee have been present since its inception in 2010.
The band's 9-song debut album, 'Specimen Cup', was independently released
on October 12th, 2015. Produced & recorded by the band’s very own Tony
Cianciotto, the disc contained all of the group’s composed material since the
beginning (including songs co-written by former bassists Butch Quinones and
Scott Siebert).
In September 2016, Terror Garden was featured on Verizon Fios1's 'Rising
Stars' special promo. Only a few months later, in February 2017, Mike de Gruchy
was added to the lineup to round out a more permanent 5-piece formation.
'Karma & Chaos', the band's 2nd independent effort, was released on May 25th,
2018. Three of the 8 songs were re-recordings from the 'Specimen Cup' album:
'Deep', 'Out Of My Head' and 'Shut Up & Buy Me A Drink'. Produced by Terror
Garden and Peter R. Pizzo Jr. (Crescent Sound Studios, Farmingdale, NY), it
has received critical acclaim amongst their peers and across the Long Island
music scene.
Most of 2019 was spent touring in support of 'Karma & Chaos' and composing
new original material. Studio sessions commenced in November 2019
throughout March 2020. During this timeframe, both Tony Cianciotto and Johnny
Wildchild departed the group shortly after recording their respective tracks. Wild
Bill Sherman officially replaced Tony Cianciotto on bass in June 2020.
The band's 3rd independent album, 'Keep It Real', was finally released on
September 6th, 2020. Just like their previous output, it contains 8 songs
produced by Peter R. Pizzo Jr., including a bonus track cover of Golden
Earring’s “Twilight Zone” (physical CD version only).
More than a full decade into the game, extensive touring, strong material and a
rapidly increasing fanbase have made Terror Garden one of the premiere upand-
coming hard rock/heavy metal artists to watch. Follow all the band's social
media outlets for the latest updates.
