Artists UnderaWare: Turn Me On Dead, Sunrunners & Wander

Estevan Herrera | At The End Of Radio

         Everyday new bands and artists are popping up everywhere and we know it’s hard to keep up with which one deserve your time.   We’ve decided to make it easier for you.  Every week we’ll introduce you to great up & coming artists from the Bay Area. We do all the hours of listening and searching so you can just sit back and enjoy the talent that is brewing all over the Bay Area. 


        San Jose’s Turn Me On Dead bring an exciting mix of electro/dance and rock that is heavily influenced by 80’s music. Their debut EP, Birth is filled with melodies, hooks and pure fun.  This band not only brings it on their album, but also with their live shows. Singer Rick Alexander brings tons of energy in his live performances and you’re always in for a treat when you see them. If you don’t feel the urge to move to their music you might want to check that you have a pulse. The entire band gives you everything they got and you can’t help but reciprocate that energy with their infectious music. Check out their songs, “Happi Face” & “All Things Fade”. Also check out an interview we did we them last year and get to know them better. You can catch their next show for free at The Blank Club in San Jose on February 12th. For more info click here.


        San Francisco indie rock band, Sunrunners use pop driven pianos, melodic guitar lines and calming vocals to create a musical haze that makes you feel as if you’re dreaming. You know that dream that’s so great that you don’t want to wake up from it. This band has lots of promise and it will be fun to watch them grow. We expect this band to make some noise not only here in the Bay Area but everywhere. Take a listen to their self titled album, and make sure to check out the songs, “The Writer”, “Save Everybody” and “Stars and Colors”. The latter is free for download on their site. Get on the train early and enjoy the ride with these guys because it just may never stop.


        San Leandro’s, Wander are what most post-rock bands strive to be. This band is somehow able to translate the full range of emotions without a single word, just with their instruments. Excitement, fear, pain, anger and love just permeate out of their amps and drums. If our lives were a soundtrack, Wander would be the conductors to it. Feel alive and listen to these guys now. They have a show coming up Feb. 27th in Berkeley and the info is here. You can download their latest album, “Mourning” for free here. Make sure to take in the tracks, “Oblivion”, “Valor” and “Alpha Space”, which is available on their previous EP, “Short Story Collection”. Enjoy the emotional musical roller coaster that is Wander!


A year to the day.

The months had passed without much notice. His letters arrived and their supplies went out. She trusted in his word, and left to fate the outcome. 

On this night Avaleira stood among her entourage, a gathering of servants, honor guard and individual staff to receive them. She waited for their return. With the wind in their favor she saw the golden sails blanketing the horizon before nightfall, and the familiar colors of the Sunrunner crest marching out onto shore. They moved slowly, few in number. Fewer than had left, but just as many as promised. 

Aeviry slowed to a stop, his eyes locked to her own. He exhaled smoothly through his nose. “Sunrunner Templar, present arms to the Lady Dawnsong!”

They laid their weapons at her feet, an order ushered from his lips only once before.

Bladerunner, Screamshot, Furserth, Amberdawn, Nar’Kerym, Sunrunner. Six faces she knew among the dozen who stood before her.

Aeviry lifted his chin as well as his voice, a smile on his lips. “My Lady, it is with great pride that I present to you the finest soldiers that the Sin’dorei have ever seen.” He held her gaze for a moment longer before kneeling himself, blade placed to the ground before him.

"You have honored your oaths," Avaleira began, "To Quel’thalas, and to your Lord. The courage of our people is embodied through your actions, and our trust is not wasted on you." Avaleira lifted her hands palm up. "You have come far, Templars, but a long road lays at your feet. Serve with honor, loyalty and sacrifice, and together we will restore Quel’thalas to glory."

I colored it, I still have an odd way of coloring. But it works I guess. 
I tried something new with the sword, soo that was different.

marky-marxist - DID I DO DAL’S SWORD GOOD?! 


Seeing how I have a few anon hate for the use of the in game model of a  sword. 

(Using Quel’delar’s Model)   The weapon is named Rend’Fin. The very Oathblade of her Husband to his Oathsister: Jaedeen. Adiana has decided that she would bare the weight of the blade upon herself. The Blade would appear on her form wrapped in loose leathers and Cloths around areas of the sword. Refusing to bring it to the Sunwell to purify the saronite. Keeping it just the way it is till the day he would return… she hopes.

From her Wiki page: Adiana Sunrunner

There was a certain spring to his step as he dropped his burden on the dock where the sailors were loading up the ship with supplies. 

Here within the Fjord the scent of cold mingled the salt of the sea. It was a faintly familiar scent, the scent that had greeted him a year ago when they arrived in the north. Now here with only a handful of men instead of the near seventy they had arrived with, Aran glanced back over his shoulder and surveyed the small town and it’s surroundings.

So much had happened in this frozen land. He had laughed and cried with his comrades. Seen them fall and helped them rise once again to their feet, just as they had done for him. Aran had watched some men push through the challenges and arrived stronger and more capable then any of them could dream of. Just as he had seen others collapse in the face of the trials placed before them and slink away defeated.

While had he arrived with a hatred for the cold, he left with an admiration and respect. It was this land, this cold, and the trials both it and his commanders had placed before him that made him the man he was today.

It was as if a lifetime truly had passed since he had stepped off of this ship. For the light knew, he was stepping aboard if a different man. The blind arrogance of before had tempered into confidence. Humility rested where there was none before. 

He had sworn he’d return to Quel’thalas triumphant and as he turned to board the ship that would take them back to their eternal lands, he knew he had succeeded.

"Shall we wake him, Lady Dawnsong?"

Avaleira idly thumbed the handle of her teacup. “Not yet, not until noon,” she said. “Then you may wake him.”

"As you say, my Lady." The young maidens of the Sunrunner staff bowed their heads lowly.

"Bring me my charts, the ones I left in the library," Avaleira instructed. "And an ink well."

"Your weren’t suppose to leave…"

I doodled, there is actually a story to this. Happy to pretty sad.

Going to actually color it later though. 

The Sunrunner Templar was dismissed and promised a few days of freedom and relaxation. It was glorious to merely be in this familar place and surrounded by such familiar scents and sounds.

Forcing himself into his chambers to strip out of his armor, Aran bathed himself quickly in a basin before pulling on his long missed silk clothing.Trudging back down the steps and into the main dining hall, Aran collapsed into a chair and called the servants to bring ale to the table.

He was soon joined by Saphrael, Kaveen, and Sairys. The quartet jested and drank for hours before each drifted toward their beds.
