"Around Hear"

For only being together a little more than three years, Peoria quartet Justify The Means sure have their act together. On their new album, No End, they unload standard thrashing heavy metal fare, with a hint of sincerely-penned introspection as heard on songs like "I Feel." JTM have obviously found their groove, and they should run with it.

"That's Mr. Entertainment to You..."

Bringing new life to the Central Illinois' music scene, Justify The Means is the new breed of heavy-melodic metal straight out of Peoria, IL. Established late 2003, this quartet has taken over ILLINOIS' music scene forcing its guitar driven, drum slammin', bass thumpin’, beautifully melodic-aggressive vocals down the throats of all listeners. Becoming Peoria's hardest working band since Mudvayne, JTM has earned their senority. In just 3 short years JTM has opened for countless National Acts; picked up multiple sponsorships and endorsements; became the "ORIGINAL" house band for Peoria's biggest rock radio station, hosts the most impressive/most intense local metal shows; and now continues to tour the country in support of its latest CD “NO END”. Currently JTM is recording its follow-up to NO END. Imagine the possibilities...
