3. Lucid Fly-If Evanescence and A Perfect Circle were to fornicate, the result of its offspring would be the band Lucid Fly.

4. Annandale-A band that is constantly peeling the layers away and stripping down their sound, the fiery Knoxville duo of Ashley and Chad Grennor is generating a lot of attention. Their newest album produced by veteran rocker Clint Lowery, “Moving Forward”, is anything but amateur. The combination of intertwining voices will awaken the listener’s soul while experiencing the presence that Annandale promotes.
