Bands
The Order Of Apollyon

Conceived in summer 2008 by former ABORTED members Daniel Wilding (drums) and B.S.T. (vocals), THE ORDER OF APOLLYON took on the role of the Celebrant of the Word of the Lord. The project is more than a simple extreme metal band; it is a musical covenant. The message is profoundly religious and adheres to strict paramilitary imagery while the music draws from elements of the ambient martial scene.

The band began work on the first offering following the induction of guitarist James McIlroy (CRADLE OF FILTH) and bassist Peter Benjamin (ACKERCOCKE). The opus, entitled "The Flesh", concentrates on the passage from the spiritual to the material. THE ORDER OF APOLLYON embarked on self-producing the album, recording the drums in the UK and the rest of the instruments in the notoriously sinister BST Studio.

Disarmonia Mundi - Cold Inferno

Determined to let the world know that Italy can still produce some high-quality Gothenburg metal, Disarmonia Mundi is back after a 6-year hiatus. The Turin-based twosome is comprised of instrumentalist extraordinaire Ettore Rigotti and vocalist Claudio Ravinale. Björn Strid from Soilwork and Christian Älvestam also provide some vocal work.

In this much coveted market of melodic death metal, it has always been virtually impossible to avoid comparisons. Earlier in their career, the band was likened to Soilwork. Of course hiring Björn Strid on 2004's Fragments Of D-Generation did not help. What it did though was bring them to the forefront of the scene. 2009 rolled around and the emergence of a more modern sound was showcased on The Isolation Game. All of a sudden Disarmonia Mundi was being compared to later days In Flames for obvious reasons. Undeterred by criticism, the duo just released their 5th offering, Cold Inferno.
