Today's Paramount
Today's Paramount
Today's Paramount has been hustling their own exclusive stylings out of Denver, Colorado for over five years. The band was formed with an aim to deliver sonic sincerity and inspiration above all else, and that goal combined with their wide range of musical influence has worked in their favor to forge a sound that is as original as it is exciting.
Although all four members were born and bred in the Denver area, their tunes are reminiscent of parts of the world spanning from New Orleans and the American Appalachians to Eastern Europe and the Balkans, to the Middle and Far East. With an instrumental lineup putting the guitar, bass, and drums alongside the violin, keys, synths, and vocals pushed through grainy microphones, Today's Paramount has managed to trick eardrums out of their comfort zones and into a world of sonically balanced dissonance and beauty, aggression and compassion. They've imported foreign melodies and rhythms, adding their own macabre darkness all while remaining true to the nostalgic energy that comes from their roots in old school, passionate Rock and Roll.


In June 2017, Today's Paramount independently released their premier self titled album. At seven tracks and just over 40 minutes long, it runs the gamut of genres and has the tendency to solicit chills of both desperation and inspiration. The album clearly seeks to convey as much of the human condition as possible with the humility of souls who have experienced the ugliness right alongside the beauty. It's impossible to have one without the other.
The band name comes from the idea that today, right now, is the only moment you ever get to experience, and thus it's the most important. In this moment alone you are alive. This quartet is leading by example, and they hope to inspire others to do the same. Because you could be dead tomorrow, Today is Paramount.

Hellgrammites
Hellgrammites is a family band from Denver, Colorado consisting of brothers and cousins. The group likes to play music that invokes emotions not normally meant to be felt by an audience. Lehi Petersen (guitar, vocals, keyboards) states:

“Music traditionally addresses a limited range of emotions; happy, sad, angry, etc. We want to address feeling, emotions, and issues that people don’t feel comfortable talking about. That’s why we call ourselves discomfort punk. There are so many fucked up things in the world that everyone chooses to ignore on a daily basis. We want to bring those things out through our music.”

Hellgrammites incorporate characters and costumes into their live performances as well. With characters Mr. New Booty (Erik Petersen), Jaundice Bukkake (Lehi Petersen), Dr. Hartacus (Troy Ten Eyck), and Arete (Jared Petersen), the members take on a stage presence that is entertaining, provocative, fun, and uncomfortable all at the same time.
