Bands
Mr. Bungle

Mr. Bungle was formed in 1985 in Eureka, California. The original line-up included Trevor Dunn on bass, Mike Patton on vocals, Trey Spruance on guitar, and Jed Watts on drums. The band took its name from two short films which appeared in early episodes of the "The Pee Wee Herman Show", in which an ill-mannered, un-hygienic puppet clown demonstrated how good grade-school kids should not behave (only later did band members learn, through Faith No More bassist Bill Gould, that the porn flick "Sharon's Sex Party" also stars a character named Mr. Bungle).

The Order Of The Solar Temple

There was a time in the history of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal when the boundaries of those genres were blurry and it was natural for them to flow together into powerful musical expressions, very often under the flag of occultism and esoterism. Today, those times of great ardour and creativity revive in the arcane melodies of The Order Of The Solar Temple, a wicked congregation performing strange rituals in the ancient magik of rock and roll.

Conceived in 2012 by Canadian singer/guitarist Matt "Macabre" Emery - once in the ranks of Funeral Circle and other Vancouver's metal acts - The Order Of The Solar Temple plaits the occult-tinged proto-metal of Blue Öyster Cult with the dark, introvert visions of Paul Chain; the doom arabesques of Pagan Altar with the dreadful metal outbursts of Demon and Mercyful Fate; the teachings of Aleister Crowley with the denim-and-leather philosophy of the first metal era.

Bands
Pantommind

Sometime in the distant 1993, in a small town in the heart of Bulgaria, a few friends gather up to play their favorite music. These are Pete Christ, "Floyd" Rossen, Jiip Randam and Lambie. They call themselves with the strange name Lavender Haze, while their music protrudes influences of Queensryche and shows affinity towards different electronic motives and complex compositions.

Two years later, the band is finally completed with the joining of the emblematic vocalist Tony Ivan, and drummer Drago. 1995 marks the change of the band's name to Pantommind, as well as their first studio recording - the song called "Every Dream Is A Game". Another year passes in recording of new material, and in 1996 the demo EP Unreality.

Bands
Noûs

Noûs exercise powerful, raw, sludgy, psychedelic, filthy metal. Dark heavy low end rumble, weighty drums, controlled dissonance with harsh, guttural vocals. Painfully chosen words attempting to describe the 5 piece Sludge/Doom Metal band from Ballarat, Australia.

Repulse of cliché is the attitude and focus when writing music.

Bands
Dimesland

With members' musical past and contemporary placement in a divergent array of bands including The Residents, Wild Hunt and more, abstract metal quartet, Dimesland produces a sound that is the result of a blend of controlled chaos and musical mutation, heavy tension and dark psychedelia. As Dimesland, guitarists Nolan Cook and Drew Cook, drummer/vocalist Harland Burkhart and bassist/vocalist Greg Brace create a place where aggression and imagination merge harmonically, rhythmically and lyrically to explore the terrain of psychological havoc and mental fracture. The band's live performances are frantic and dense and feature songs woven together with shorter pieces and textures for an almost nonstop presentation of sound.

Manimalism

Manimalism was founded by Kim Sølve and three others back in 1992. An anomaly in their own time, Manimalism was a silent contributor to the first wave of Norwegian post-Black Metal weirdness when names like Ved Buens Ende and Fleurety, before they became legendary, were their only contemporaries. As Taarenes Vaar, they released two demos, one in 1996 and one in 1997, both to critical acclaim from local magazines. It was hard for conformists to make sense of Manimalism, there was not much there that adhered to the expectations of the already indoctrinated Black Metal scene. Too bizarre to get proper recognition in their own time, too weird to be picked up by the Black Metal demo re-release wave a decade or so back, their two demos stand as the only evidence of their artistic merit.
