❝ Our name is Ultra Violent Rays. We are an electronic duo specializing in spaced-out, shimmering, hypnotic sonic landscapes. Imagine Philip K. Dick howling at a pale and dangerous moon while Siouxsie Sioux does a rain dance around him, but instead of rain, rainbow colored fire falls from the sky consuming everything leaving only a net of blue, grey regret…that is kind of what our music sounds like. We don’t write songs to fit into a certain niche, we write songs that are alive; entities unto themselves. Though we live in the cosmic dark, our live show is a gigantic psychedelic wave of color, light and sound. ❞

…a beautiful croak quenched by kerosene and gargled through the gravel of hard times. It’s an ageless, haunting sort of voice.

Heavy metal (or simply metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States. With roots in blues rock and psychedelic rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are often associated with masculinity, aggression and machismo.
The first heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath attracted large audiences, though they were often derided by critics, a status common throughout the history of the genre. In the mid-1970s Judas Priest helped spur the genre’s evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed. Bands in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal such as Iron Maiden and Saxon followed in a similar vein. Before the end of the decade, heavy metal fans became known as “metalheads” or “headbangers“.
