When I lived in Dallas, Mesquite was known primarily for its shitkickers and goatropers at the rodeo and it's high school football. I did witness and cover a pretty amazing tornado there in the mid-80's. But soon, I hope, Mesquite will be better known as the home of White Arms of Athena.
Certainly one of the things I'm looking forward to most in the new year is the release of Astrodama from WAoA. This music was recorded last year by Jamie King of BTBAM fame and cries out to be heard. The vocals aren't as heavy as what I usually like but the prog music more than makes up for it.
White Arms is posting two songs that you can sign up for right now and download. called Creationed and Recreationed and soon you'll be Athenaed too.
