Half8n is a four piece American hard rock band from Central California, formed in 2006 and consisting of Dalton Whitman (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Eric Avila (lead Guitar, background vocals), Justin Casselman (Drums) and James Ruiz (bass). Upon release of their first demo in 2009, the band decided to push things into high gear with the inclusion of lead guitarist and co songwriter Eric Avila. Having perfected an album’s worth of songs, Manager Allen Casselman, contacted System of a Down front man Serj Tankian, asking about their experience in the industry and how they achieved the epic sounds on their first album. Not too many days later, the band received an e-mail from Sylvia Massy explaining that Serj had suggested she check them out. It was this chain of events that brought Sylvia Massy and engineer Fernando Flores together to record and produce their debut EP. The debut EP “We Were Here” will be released April 20, 2011. STYLES & INFLUENCES The variety of style and range of experimentation displayed by the band transcends categorization and is achieving the loyalties of metal fans and progressive fans alike.

Half8n is largely influenced by bands such as System of a Down, Alice in Chains, Korn, Slipknot, Static X among many others. Their sound is defined by drop tuning, mainly drop b and drop c. QUESTIONS: A lot of fans ask for the meaning behind some of the band’s lyrics like, “There is no chance for me, you bleed me dry.” The band makes many references to disingenuous people who are after their own profits off of the backs of others. In the song “Human Genocide” the lyric “We can’t deny, that we must fight” speaks to a broader culture of denial that is seduced into thinking everything is just fine. Take a look around..

not just at yourself, your family. Look further…. Look next door, down the street across your country. Then take a look across the ocean.

What do you see? In our estimation, destruction. Most of the information we are fed is candy coated bullshit. In reality… The world and all that we have created is falling apart to many politically generated agendas. Powers are being usurped and crimes against humanity are being committed.

The band’s music is a call to action that inspires people to hold themselves accountable for damage caused by industry and ego driven consumerism. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
