No Mercy Metal = Eyes Like Cyanide

Earlier this month, the third episode of the No Mercy Metal Showcase took place at Crash Mansion here in New York City. In case you haven't heard of the No Mercy Metal Showcase, it is a collaboration between New York Hard Rock promoters CT Tamura and Mike Sankuri from Gotham Rocks, and Tim Martinez (A.K.A. DJ Tim No 37). The whole concept is to offer up and coming bands a platform, where they can perform their music in front of music related websites, radio stations, and other outlets.

As sponsors of the No Mercy Metal Showcase, we are meant to pick a band that stands out and tell you all about them. This time around we want to tell you about the band Eyes Like Cyanide.

Formed in 2008 by singer Chris Miralrio, his vision for Eyes Like Cyanide was to create a unique blend of sounds. In order to do this, he consciously started working with musicians from different backgrounds. Today Eyes Like Cyanide has members from New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Michigan, which results in a well crafted band with musicians who add different flavors to the mix.

Eyes Like Cyanide will get any crowd moving with their intensity and passion. They are working day in and day out on creating something that is completely unique, and that will make them stand out strong. Their focus is to keep playing shows all over the tri-state area and to hopefully land a record deal, so that they can take their music to the next level. Eyes Like Cyanide are ready for you, are you ready for Eyes Like Cyanide?

Here is an interview we conducted at the most recent No Mercy Metal Showcase, starring CT Tamura from Gotham Rocks and Chris Miralrio from Eyes Like Cyanide. Enjoy!

Richard Christy: Metal meets Radio

When most people hear the name Richard Christy, they immediately think of the stunt guy from the Howard Stern Show on Sirius Satellite Radio. For us Metaleros, Richard Christy is synonymous to Heavy Metal drumming. Believe it or not, Richard has been a professional Heavy Metal drummer since 1995. In this time span, he has played in legendary bands like Death and Iced Earth, and recently he formed a band with Tim "Ripper" Owens called Charred Walls of the Damned.

Anyone who has met Richard Christy knows that not only is he very talented, but also a gentleman in every sense of the word. This might be hard to grasp after hearing and seeing his stunts on the Howard Stern Show, but it is all just a show. One thing that is evident, is that the same passion that took Richard to Heavy Metal heaven (or hell), also took him to radio elite. After all, being a drummer in a Heavy Metal band and working on the best radio show in history take a lot of discipline, passion and perseverance.

Recently, we chatted with Richard Christy outside of the Sirius XM studios, about Hixonfest 2010, his gig at the Howard Stern Show, and also about his new band Charred Walls of the Damned. Here is what we predict to be another hit delivered to you by Horns Up Rocks!
