Bands
Thou Shell Of Death

Thou Shell of Death´s creation can be described as majestic atmospheric black metal with haunting vocals. The band´s live shows are known as atmospherically hypnotizing and mesmerizing.

Thou Shell of Death was born in spring 2010. At the same year a demo „The Forest Of Shadows" was released and in 2011 a split album with WEDARD (de) followed. Both of them were released as strictly limited wooden box editions. Since the very start, Thou Shell of Death have played various shows all over the Europe, sharing stages with well-known and also underground acts (Mayhem, Strid, Skepticism, Vesania, Altar of Plagues etc…). After signing a contract with Talheim Records, there have been 2 more releases. The long-awaited debut full-length album "Sepulchral Silence" saw the light of day in autumn 2013, and "Cave Hill", a 34-minute EP on 12" vinyl, in January 2015.

Bands
Aggression

Aggression was formed on Halloween night, 1984 (originally under the moniker "Asylum"), by the 2 guitar shredders Sasquatch and Burn. Rounding out the lineup was Botcher on vocals, Dug on Bass and Gate on drums. After a few demos they recorded Forgotten Skeleton in 1986. Unfortunately the album would not see a release until 2004 (almost 20 years later!). After some lineup changes, Aggression recorded and released 1987's The Full Treatment.

They received good reviews for their demos and The Full Treatment and very quickly became one of the most popular metal bands in Quebec and Canada. Their concerts were sold out everywhere, and the fanbase grew from hundreds to thousands in no time. With his public relations expertise, their manager at the time (Johnny Hart) quickly made Aggression an household name. Other bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Hallows Eve, Destruction and others all wanted to see the beast for themselves and meet Aggression while they were in Montreal, playing numerous concerts with bands such as Anvil, Celtic Frost, Voivod, Nuclear Assault, Agnostic Front, D.R.I., Possessed, Dark Angel, Crumbsuckers, Sacrifice and others. Due to certain members' drug problems and bad decisions the band was all but dead in 1989.

Palat

Palat is a metal group formed in 1987 in Tallinn, Estonia with the unchanged line-up to this day: Andri Hõbemägi (vocals, guitar), Alo Puustak (guitar), Tanel Trööp (bass, backing vocals) and Margus Tohver (drums). The name of the band comes from the short story Ward No. 6 by Anton Chekhov with Palat being a direct translation from Ward.

Being one of the first thrash metal bands in the country, the quartet was most active through years 1988 - 1992, touring in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Denmark. They reached also wider audience with the video for the cover song Linda broadcasted in 1990 on Estonian National Television (today available on YouTube) and transformed during these years from pure thrash metal to incorporate the elements of funk and rap. In recent years, Palat has performed a couple occasional gigs in their hometown.
