Not only are metal fans picking up on the fast-rising Heaven Below, but now, one of music’s most recognizable and respected guitar brands, B.C.
Rich, is now on board as well. Guitarists Patrick Kennison and Jesse Billson are longtime admirers of the guitar brand that has gone
hand-in-hand with heavy metal for decades, and now, in addition to being endorsed by B.C. Rich, Heaven Below are showcased on their website.
Included on B.C. Rich’s Heaven Below “artist page” are photos, videos, and links to the group’s official website, as well as to their Twitter,
YouTube, Facebook, Myspace pages, plus an artist bio, and a link that takes you to the preferred B.C. Rich model that Kennison and Billson
champion, the Mockingbird Special.
“Our sound encompasses the best parts of our influences,” explains Kennison. “We love the vocal harmonies of classic bands like Alice in
Chains, or the angst of legends like Trent Reznor, but our riffs and song ideas tend to be spawn from guitar driven bands like Metallica, or even
Rage Against the Machine. Once we put the vocals on, we immediately feel that our music takes on it’s own sound.” And on their self-titled release,
Heaven Below (which also includes John Younger on bass and Chad Clark on drums) shows that despite being such a young band, they can easily keep
pace with the top dogs of the current rock scene – especially on such standout tracks as “When Daylight Dies,” which was produced by
Grammy-award winning/multi-platinum artist Ben Moody of Evanescence.
With touring plans to support their debut disc being firmed up, it won’t be long until you can catch the dynamic duo rocking their B.C. Rich
guitars on a stage near you!
