TH IN REVIEW - Check out this killer review of The Hectic by Live N' Loud magazine.

SPREAD THE WORD: Got a metal head mechanic? Dentist? Pastor? Second cousin twice removed? - Make sure you spread the word about The Hectic, here, there, and everywhere. With big record labels dominating the air waves there is only one way for bands like The Hectic, who don't conform with top 40 format songs can get the recognition they deserve, and that is YOU. YOU are the ones who can bring them out and help grow the REAL buzz. So call your local Congressman, wait, scrap that. Call your local radio station and demand The Hectic or even better come to a live show! With 200-300 people in the crowd the recognition will follow and if it doesn't we'll all atleast have one helluva time. Think of The Hectic as a badge of independence and wear it proudly, make a statement, be bold. Share The Hectic on Facebook, forward the website link to your friends and email list. YOU are a vital part of The Hectic and part of the family. Let us know what you're doing and your efforts won't go without notice. The Hectic loves you guys and look forward to seeing you again soon.

IN REVIEW: The Hectic Provided a Fistful of Rock at the Scout Bar By: Rhonda Meredith

WARNING. This article contains a dose of Texas Industrial Alt-Metal...or The Hectic for short...
The crowd was skeptical...at first. In fact, everyone was asking the same question "What is going on here?".

When band member DJ Hard Core came onstage at The Scout Bar last Saturday night with a green laser shooting out from the side of his head that pointed above the audience and scanned the room, there wasn't a sound. A hush of wonderment and slight smiles of expectation were on each face. Yeah, they knew they were about to get a show.

Then came the eruption from behind the drums that told our hearts when to beat. Drummer Ken Pride was pounding his custom double kicks as Ronnie Tinsley, The Hectic's confident frontman, unleashed his powerful vocals. The crowd was instantly up on their feet. Fists were raised into the air as guitarists Chris Owen and Kevin Reed, and bassist Danny Acker provided a rock solid back up to Tinsley's vocals.

In that "Automatic Freedom", a roomful of The Hectic fans were born.

The Hectic are self described as "Texas Industrial Alt-Metal". Let's just say a cross between Nine Inch Nails and Pantera with a little Slipknot for good measure. While The Hectic is considered comparable to those national bands, they are truly in a league of their own in the Houston music scene.

This band puts on an incredible show and you are left when it is done wishing it wasn't over. So don't miss the next one on March 11, 2010 at Numbers (300 Westheimer). The Hectic will be sharing the stage with the Razorblade Dolls, Synthetic Fiend, Zero G and headliners Erase the Virus. Tickets are only $10.

Visit their website at www.thehectic.com or www.myspace.com/thehectic to get the "Beat In Your Head".

The Hectic now has Ringtones available for your phone.


The Hectic is pleased to announce a new team member on The Hectic force. Booking and Management legend, Chris Harkness of MM55 Productions will be helping with booking and providing his years of expertise in Artist Development and promotion. Through his great work with legends of metal, D.R.I. (Dirty Rotten Imbeciles), Dead Horse, and many more over the years, Chris has been on the cutting edge of promoting many of the greatest bands hailing from Houston that have gone on to reach success on the National stage. Over the years, Chris has booked for many of the top local and regional venues with acts such as Nine In Nails, Marilyn Manson, and many more. The Hectic welcomes Chris to the team and looks forward to continued success in 2010. Read Chris' review of The Hectic. (www.mm55productions.com)

In Chris Harkness' own words: "...After decades in the business I don't get excited about many bands but I'm excited about The Hectic...I have done many shows in the past with industrial and metal touring bands including NIN, Ministry, Pantera, and Marilyn Manson, I would put The Hectic up with any of them - the show was that impressive...In my humble opinion, The Hectic is one of the most exciting new bands to come out of Houston since ZZ Top emerged in 1969."
