President, Editor (Toronto, ON, Canada)
- Hey all, I’ve been the President of PureGrainAudio since it started all the way back in the early spring of 2005. What started as a hobby to help expose myself to some new music has turned into pretty much a second job. I love rock music, particularly alternative and hard rock, but mostly I just love good music. It could be blues rock, acoustic, classic, it just has to be good!

Davey Suicide is ready to set the world ablaze. On his self-titled debut album, the Los Angeles insurgent injects gutter grit back into rock 'n' roll. It's been far too long since a rebel raged through town with distortion blaring, middle fingers in the air, girls dropping their panties, and flames everywhere. Flanked by bandmates Frankie Sil (bass), Ben Graves (drums), Needlz (keyboards), and Eric Griffin (guitar), he distills heavy metal, industrial, and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. Whether or not you're prepared, Suicide has arrived.

Adimiron is one of the most promising European Metal sensations, having already released three albums (Burning Souls - 2004, When Reality Wakes Up - 2009, and K2 - 2011) which were very well received by fans and critics alike and having shared the stage all over Europe with legendary bands such as Annihilator, Death Angel, Meshuggah, Sepultura, Suffocation, Obituary and many more. The band's third album K2 is an intriguing metaphysical concept about a man going through a deep search of his inner self, mixing furious Thrash riffs and Progressive/Avantgarde atmospheres with a post-Death Metal touch.

SinHeresY rose officially in May 2009 in Trieste when bassist Davide Sportiello and guitarist Lorenzo Pasutto, after the nth disappointing concert of the 80's cover band in which they played, decided it was time to end with commercial music without perspectives just to gain a little money, and to get themselves all in a serious metal project. The band released its debut EP The Spiders and the Butterfly last December which gained generally good approval. The band is now preparing its debut full-length release hopefully to be released in early 2013.

Stallone formed in Atlanta, Georgia in the year 2009 when Juan Montoya met drummer Evan Diprima at work. They started playing some songs together at a friend's house just for the hell of it; this is when they realized they had a creative energy with each other. What was missing though was a general direction in mind, so they put together a wide array of ideas that would later turn into a more completed vision. In October 2010, Montoya and Diprima recorded a handful of songs with Craig Carlson which turned out to their liking to the point that they decided to form a full band that could actually perform and tour.

Nick Miller & The Hustle Standard is bluesy rock at its finest. The band has written and recorded a six song concept EP, creating an epic of the fictional life of The Brave Abraham Judah and his murderous adventures across the wild west. This is the fourth installment of The Hustle Standard collaboration series in which the band concocts a medley of American roots music; rock and roll, blues, Americana and western.
