"Cinder Red"

Cinder Red
Is on the rise...Great new music guys - Hot House Rehearsal Studios

"The Inside Connection"

Cinder Red a relatively new band out of Norwalk, California is making fast work of the California music scene in spite of the fact that they've only been together since January of '06. The band was formed out of members of Polaris and Aurous both veterans of such venues as Soma in San Diego and the Roxy in LA. The guitar work from these guys comes from Steven Goodwin and Randy Ramirez both of whom have done sessions with multiple artists.

The 3 songs of their EPK are packed with powerful riffs and catchy songs featuring Shawn Walker on vocals. Cinder Red definitely does not suffer from the 'I can't sing' school of metal, Shawn has a great voice and fits very well within the overall sound of the music. "Something We've All Done" will be featured on The Indie Connection radio show in December, look to our podcast site ( for when you can hear this one. This song is a great radio song that I'm sure will be great in a live show. Their sound bridges metal from yesterday and today into a really unique sound. "Erase the Day" features a flawless guitar break that's been missing or has gone unnoticed in metal for the last 15 years. The song "Bitter" has a lot of music happening in the background and really gets you pulled into the song with several tempo changes highlighted by a break with a driving rhythm and some incredible guitar work.

There's definitely not a lack of talent in this band, definitely worth a listen --

"2007 Best Hard Rock"

Best Hard Rock Band Nominee for 2007. - Orange County Music Awards


(demo 2006)
(D.I. 2007)



Cinder Red has already climbed into the music scene despite their recent formation in January 2006. The untitled 2006 demo brought back the fist pumping rock era, the shredding guitar, and the throw your fist up catchy songwriting feel. Try not to be fooled by the short time Cinder Red has existed. Cinder Red comes from a veteran background, cultivated from the band Polaris (Taxi's CD Compilation "Top 16 Band") and the singer of Aurous (Inland Empire "Best Live Show", "Best Indie CD", Nominee). All members have played venues ranging from "Soma" in San Diego to the "Roxy" in Los Angeles, and many more.

Within a few short months, this metal/rock band has already produced a demo, and booked successful shows. Cinder Red hit over 15,000 plays on "Myspace" in just 2 months. Cinder Red was also a front page artist on as well as a former number one on the charts at Inspiration streams from 80's hair metal (ex: Van Halen, Guns and Roses), to modern rock (ex: Seven Dust, Incubus, Nonpoint, Alter Bridge). The next step is conquering orange-county with piercing guitar riffs and catchy vocals.

Furthermore..... Cinder Red has earned a nomination for "Best Hard Rock" in 2007 for Orange County Music awards. Cinder Red has released a couple songs from their new album, D.I., that will be out at the end of July. The song writing has progressed on this new album, taking a venture into pop-metal with a dramatic vibe. The music is comparable to bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, and Sevendust, with a back beat. The band plans to tour next year and continue to play venues to support the new album. In the meantime, Cinder Red will focus their efforts on shopping the new album to hopeful labels.
