Burgerkill

Originating from Bandung, West Java, Burgerkill were formed in 1995 and have been continually shaping the underground metal scene in Indonesia ever since. For 14 years Burgerkill have consistently been in the spotlight as a force to be reckoned with in Indonesian metal, from writing compositions for movie soundtracks to the successful publication of autobiographic novels.

Their first album, 'Dua Sisi', demonstrates the band's beginnings as a leaning towards a predominantly 'Hardcore Metal' and was well received within the underground metal community. With their second album 'Berkarat' and their most recent 'Beyond Coma and Despair' Burgerkill have found their foot-hole and developed a style of their own. Burgerkill set the standard for live metal performances in Indonesia, and have always been a clear cut above the rest. What you hear on the album is what you get live - no disappointments. Their style and level of performance are incomparable to anything previously seen or heard in Indonesia. Burgerkill have become veterans of the metal stage as they are regularly supporting International metal acts touring Indonesia such as The Black Dahlia Murder, As I Lay Dying, and Himsa.

Mantra

Free spirit of the French metal scene, Mantra has been exploring the boundaries of progressive music for nearly 10 years. Ritual-like atmospheres on stage, shamanic or metaphysical concept-albums: the band cuts loose from its influencers to give life to genuine shows, incorporating contemporary dance into its appearances on stage.

The quartet, now scattered around France, unveils in 2019 its third album, 'Medium', a project that once again pushed its limits. Indeed, this record explores the body-mind duality along two epic 17 minutes tracks, independent from each other but complementary: superimposed, these two pieces give birth to a third one: the harmony of the body and the mind.
