Biography

33DEGREE was birthed in early 2003 in Los Angeles and have kept L.A. as the home base. In a short period of time, they have been officially sponsored by Jägermeister, Coffin Case, Sam Ash Music, Evil Threads and Liquid Salvation, endorsed by Ernie Ball, Alchemy/Istanbul Cymbals and Basson Sound. They were nominated and voted as L.A.'s Best Female-Fronted Band 2004 by Rock City News, then were awarded as L.A.'s Best Hard Rock Group 2005 by All Access Magazine, became a song finalist for the 2005 Independent Music Awards, was voted into the TOP 15 of MTV2's Projekt Revolution L.A. Battle and was recently nominated for Best Hard Rock Female Vocalist, Best Hard Rock Drummer and Best Hard Rock Group for the 2007 All Access Magazine Music Awards.

33DEGREE is comprised of vital body functions. Liz extracts the mind and memories, grabs the throat. Blair seizes the nerve system, wrecks the upper body. Jesus attacks the gut, toys with the lower body. Mack pumps the heart, drives the pulse, keeps the spine straight...well, straight-ish.

As hard as it is to define and put a label on music and bands these days, 33DEGREE digs deep. The vocals and lyrics are personal, emotional, dark, moody, introspective and most importantly, melodic, on top of the mostly progressive, chaotic crunch, complimented by a deep-rooted rhythm, driven by an often odd-time signature-laden syncopated and tribal backbone, possessing the magnetic stage presence bursting with intensity, energy and pure emotion. But honestly, it's more than that. A live experience is where you might find the ability to put it into words yourself.

33DEGREE is possibly one of the hardest working independent unsigned bands in California (maybe even on Earth), recording and releasing albums, booking national tours and securing shows with bands like Static-X, Disturbed, In This Moment, Bloodsimple, Mushroomhead, Dope, Powerman 5000, Bullets and Octane, The Apex Theory, Metal Skool, Banyan...

Lyrics

Nothing (Left To Dream...)

Written By: Liz : 33DEGREE

Nothing (Left To Dream...)

wide awake and feeling lonely...
didn't sleep at all last week...
i was thinking all night about nothing...
wish i knew how you could sleep...

you should stay awake with me...
why would you fall asleep...
please stay awake with me...
there's nothing left to dream...

you woke up and realized something...
what was there for me to say...
you came through but offered nothing...
so i stood up and took the blame...

you should stay awake with me...
why would you fall asleep...
please stay awake with me...
there's nothing left to dream...
...nothing

wide awake and feeling bloody...
never meant to fall asleep...
something woke up inside and pushed me...
just some nothing i saw in a dream...

you should stay awake with me...
why would you fall asleep...
please stay awake with me...
there's nothing left to dream...
...nothing

Speak From Within

Written By: Liz : 33DEGREE

So many years have passed
So many lives have flashed

Since he was young and free
Since he had time like me

Mistakes have plagued his life
Kept hope just out of sight

Forced to an endless light
Always pushed to a fight

Trained by madness
Taught by sadness
Dreamed his last breath
Just can't take it

He finally met her
Still much too clever
Still so consumed with love
Held her too high above

Too many words that
They just can't take back
She taught his children
just how to trust him

Trained by madness
Taught by sadness
Dreamed his last breath
Just can't take it

I love you daddy
It's not so bad

I know that nothing
Feels worth than sad

I love you daddy
I'll be there when

All you can think of
Is giving in

You gave me a gift
You heard my voice
Taught me to speak from within
Gave me a choice
She is your gift
She'll hear your voice
If you'll just speak from within
Give her a choice

Trained by madness
Taught by sadness
Dreamed his last breath
Just can't take it

I've been trained by this

D.A.R.K.

The words start here
Upside down and backwards
In a place that began as a gift
This is where the words begin

Commas, then lies, just words that rhyme telling stories of memories made to forget

Memories made to forget

This is where the words start
Following a pattern
Pushing through, a pulse like a fist
This is where the words begin

Commas, then lies, just words that rhyme telling stories of memories made to forget

Memories made to forget

This is where the words start
Bleeding through the paper
Soaking in the minds left open
Soaking in
This is where the words live

Finally the words will end
But really just for now
Trailing off fading into grey
Trailing off
This is where the words end
Finally the words end

Faces of children looking up to see me
Looking for anything to set their minds free
Who’ll be the poet that gives them a new taste
Will they see thinking cannot be replaced
What kind of life do you think I have
Know that your greed will leave me lifeless
I haven’t felt peace since you’ve been here
Your prying minds beg me to feed you
I can’t give you anymore pieces
Don’t have the patience to feed your core
What kind of funked up mind makes you want all this
Isn’t this how you really want it?

Commas, then lies, just words that rhyme telling stories of memories made to forget

Memories made to forget

The Agony
