We at Rock My Monkey are always trying to find new ways to help the bands that help us. Ara'Kus has pretty much dominated our band link trade chart on the left side of our website. They do this by making sure all their bandmates vote daily, sending the link out to friends, and just being good friends to us. So it's pay back time! Starting in June we will begin releasing limited edition cans with bands from our community featured on the cans! Every can printed in that month will have the band's logo as well as their main website for all to see. Only one band will be featured per month. So who will be next?
Ara'Kus combines dark, atmospheric, story-driven theater with their signature style of symphonic, operatic heavy metal.
No, seriously go check out their website at heavymetalopera.com
Their premiere production, Aeterno Elementum tells the story of a world not entirely unlike our own which has descended into darkness, and of it’s inevitable and violent purification. Featuring fire dancing, aerial performance, acrobatic martial artists, fully armed and armored knights in large scale combat, and a cast of highly talented actors and musicians of all types, this is a spectacle that must be witnessed in order to be fully understood. We at Rock My Monkey have seen what they do in person and the production values are higher than you can imagine.
Now that Ara'Kus has won, they will be removed from the contest until Jan 1st.
A few simple rules:
- The top band at the end of the month gets the feature
- Once a band wins, they are removed from the chart until Jan 1st
- Only one vote, per IP address per day
- If your band is not playing shows, recording, or have a full line up, you do not count.
- Rock, Metal, Punk, and Industrial bands only please.
- Rap, Dubstep, Techno, Country, and Pop will be removed at our discretion.
