Australian power metal act Dungeon is spearheaded by one Lord Tim Grose (vocals/guitar/keyboards), who first founded the band in the outback town of Broken Hill, in 1989, and has worked with innumerable henchmen coming and going over the years. Steeped in the European traditions of the style, characterized by soaring vocals, melodic guitars, energetic double-bass drum work, and mystical themes, their albums have been releases by several different independent labels and include 1996's Demolition, 1999's Resurrection, 2002's A Rise to Power, and 2005's One Step Beyond.
The Dungeon Family is a hip hop/R&B/soul musical collective, based in Atlanta, Georgia and specializing in Southern hip hop with heavy funk and soul influences. The group derives its name from "The Dungeon", the name given to record producer Rico Wade's basement studio where many of the early members of the collective did their first recordings. Rico Wade, Ray Murray, and Sleepy Brown constitute the production/songwriting team Organized Noize, who have produced hits for the main popular Dungeon Family groups Outkast and Goodie Mob.
The collective released their first album together, titled Even in Darkness, on November 26, 2001.
On October 7, 2011, it was announced that Arista, along with Jive and J Records would be shut down. All artists, including The Dungeon Family, on those labels were moved to RCA Records.
