The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Atherstone is currently wrapping up their 3-song demo, properly titled "From Butterflies to Butcher Knives", a feeling singer/songwriter Tanner Cowens says " a feeling I'm all too familiar with, especially in love relationships."
The 3-song collection features "An Eye for an Eye", a riffy, angsty, song dealing the cards of revenge, and commanding enthusiastic headbanging.
"Lenor", a soft, near goth ballad, inspired by Edger Allen Poe's "The Raven" tells the sad story of a demented poet who's love is lost at his own hands.
And finally, the demo wraps up with Atherstone's "The Thirst", a song many describe and Atherstone's heaviest metal song in their arsenal, thanks to its vocal tosses, chuggy rhythms, eery leads, and double bass bursts.


Feeling a bit camera shy


This band's main theme has been progression. Atherstone came from a very basic mix of punk and classic rock, until about May of 2006, when everything changed with the fusion of near acoustic melodicore with a heavy metal edge in "From Butterflies to Butcher Knives". Atherstone, formerly known as Dare by Takeout, took an evolutionary turn from small town garage band punk rock to main stage ear-blistering alternative hardcore! With a winning line up of Jerry Stewart and Cody Prose on guitars, fans get their ears pierced with non-stop flip flops of rhythm and leads shooting back and forth between each charasmatic and entertaining axemen. Former bass player of Black Thursday, Chava Barahona, the most recent addition to Atherstone, steps up to both the rhythm section as well as backing vocals. Daniel Begley, on drums comes forward with a brand new array of tricks including his unique drum set-up and double heel-toe bass bursts. Tanner Cowens on vocals brings forth not only baby soft ballad vocals, but an array of angsty screams ranging from grunge rock to emo-screamo to death metal qualities. All together, Atherstone offers a promising line-up of fun and talented individuals that will keep bringing new material to Southern Oregon, and someday, the world.
