Level-C Readies Debut Album For Release

Cleveland-based all-female metal band Level-C’s debut self-titled album will be released on July 29 by Locomotive Music/Ryko Distribution.

“Level-C is real,” said vocalist Christine Maynard. “The lyrics were written about real experiences. The music was constructed with real emotion. When I listen to the songs, it’s like opening a diary of my life.”

Level-C has slugged it out for years, playing shows and honing their craft, which makes their first international release even sweeter.

“It took strength, endurance, and perseverance,” said guitarist Christina Crago. “That is why I got it tattooed on me - so I never forget.”

Level-C’s songs have matured through the process of playing live, which is where the group’s true energy and power shine through.

“You'll want to come back for more!” said drummer Misty Everson. “We live to be on stage and it's what we do best. You'll sweat, get bruises, you might even bleed, but you'll want to come to the next show!” More...
