Metal Compass Agency announces that we have reached an agreement with our first band. After careful consideration Washington D.C.'s FALLEN MARTYR have been inked to an exclusive worldwide management deal.
Metal Compass Agency's Rick Harper states, "We're really excited about teaming up with this extraordinary metal band. We've admired them for some time now. We believe this will be an excellent partnership. These are great guys and on top of all of that they're tremendous musicians." FALLEN MARTYR guitarist Gabriel Luis adds, ""We are thrilled to be with Metal Compass Agency ! They are very dedicated and focused on the development and longevity of their artists. This is the perfect match for us ."
Formed in 2005 by bassist Doug Albers and guitarist Gabriel Luis the band set out to create music that is not only heavy, but music that is intricate and melodic. Joined by guitarist Michael Gerlach, drummer Jake Ford, and classically trained front man J. Ryan Rawlings FALLEN MARTYR have achieved their original objective.
Drawing inspiration from a plethora of influences, Fallen Martyr recorded their debut EP, "The Six Roots of True will. " The band achieved a level of technical excellence from the beginning. Brutal riffing combined with thunderous rhythyms, all topped off with Rawling's heavy and melodic vocals transformed the "Six Roots of True Will" EP an instant fan favorite. In the fall of 2010 Fallen Martyr received the high honor of winning the Producer Choice Award for Metal Album of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards.
In late 2010 Fallen Martyr completed the writing and recording process for their debut full length cd entitled "Shadows", a concept album of the highest caliber. The cd was mixed and mastered in the Spring/Summer of 2011 by Greg Macklin of System Divide. Album artwork and cd booklet were done by Felipe Machado whose client list includes such notables as Iced Earth and Blind Guardian. With their album complete the band and Metal Compass Agency now look to the next logical steps.
Metal Compass Agency looks forward to assisting FALLEN MARTYR in the bands next chapter. Look for big things to come for FALLEN MARTYR. Expect big things from METAL COMPASS AGENCY !
