Before the Rise is:
Washburn: Lead Guitar
Waterman: Rhythm Guitar
Before the Rise is influenced by Nonpoint, 40 Below Summer, Staind and Taproot.
They've only existed since November 2006, but they have been creating quite a buzz. They recorded their debut, Seed the Soil, with Matt LaPlant at Bieler Bros. Studios who's produced the last two Nonpoint records.
They've already played major shows with The Dreaming and Kittie and that resume will increase.
They may have recorded at Bieler Bros. Studios...but for whatever reason, they are still unsigned.
It apparently won't be long as they have big news coming soon.
I don't think it has to do with getting nominated for an award for an organization that supports "having a good time", as they've already announced that.
Before the Rise is a band on the rise and to give you an idea of how quick that rise is, here's a performance of Suffering.
