BeatleMetalMania ... was an idea that the lead vocalist, Jonah Whale came up with several years ago. Growing up as a huge Beatles fan he was also inspired by a lot of progressive rock , as well as heavy metal. He thought what a great idea it would be to combine the amazing song writing and musicianship of The Beatles with a heavy metal twist. So about a year ago, he started searching for the right musicians for the job all over Pennsylvania and Jersey. Numerous musicians had auditioned and numerous had failed, but finally the right combination came about and BeatleMetalMania was born.

All four of the band members have been working as musicians since their teens. Jonah Whale himself is best known for his solo projects where he writes, records, and plays all the instruments on the albums. He also has an original, progressive rock band "JONAH WHALE ". BeatleMetalMania's lead guitarist, Chris Fenicchia has been rockin audiences from coast to coast , including Mexico and Canada since the 80s. His previous bands include, ARC ANGEL, M&M STEW, THE REVIVAL and THE BACK DOORS , just to name a few. Besides playing guitar he's also known for his amazing vocals. The Bassist ,( Taro Anthony ) is also a very seasoned, multi talented musician with amazing vocals as well. He has played in numerous bands such as UGLY SHIRT BAND , ROCK N HORSE and TWISTED T 'Z just to name a few. BeatleMetalMania's Drummer, (Phil Wax) started playing drums at age 5 and by age 18 worked as a full time musician. He's been in several bands such as LOCAL HEROES, ONE WORLD, BAD NEIGHBOR , and THE WRETCHED to name a few. He has also worked as a studio musician and has been on numerous albums.

Between these four amazing musicians, Beatle Metal Mania promises to rock your socks off.
With stratospheric vocals, electrifying twin guitar attack, and a thunderous rhythm section, Somerville effortlessly preserves the no-holds-barred hard rock tradition with bravado and virtuosity.
Earth 7
When Kenan began writing melody-centric instrumental tunes heavily influenced by metal and jazz, he gave birth to earth7. Soon after this creation, a 3 song EP was released consisting of him playing and recording the guitar, bass, drums, and synthesizers, while also undertaking the task of mixing and mastering – all in his small home studio. But due to the intricacy of the songs, playing them live solo would have been incredibly difficult. This led to him being joined by Zev on drums, Luke on bass, and Danny on guitar – all talented musicians with whom he has great chemistry on and off the stage.
