In the summer of storms 2008 brothers Gunter and Jurgen Rivera calling themselves RISE released six songs on MySpace and soon after began releasing songs through ReverbNation as well. They quickly garnered many loyal and excited fans with their hard driving, unique, and passionate sound. RISE fans seem to run the gamut from doom metal heads, to stoner rockers, to grunge fans and lovers of classic 70s hard rock.
Late 2009 saw the release of the album SEER (a compilation of songs they had released over the year online plus two brand new tracks) as a free download on PureVolume and was met with ravenous response. The song Earth X from that same album was featured on the extremely popular Doom Metal Alliance Records profile http://www.myspace.com/doommetalunion where it held the #1 spot with the most plays for several weeks. Their highly anticipated all new album entitled POWER EDICTS is out Now and available from Ozium Records at http://oziumrecords.com/Shop/Details/492
