Abhoth

Abhoth's creation was started in 2006 by Srđan Mišović, as a result of his fascination with writings of H.P.Lovecraft and his love for obscure and atmospheric metal sound. That's when he wrote first couple of unfinished song and introduced them to Branko Jugović and Miloš Klikovac, who have taken the roles as a bass player and guitarist, while Srđan was about to take the role of band's vocalist. Drums were to be programmed. And that's when the project got its initial line-up. They decided to name it Abhoth, after monstrous, amorphous being from literature of Clark Ashton Smith, which was said to be the ultimate source of miscreation and abomination.

Urarv

Northern trees sometimes bear strange fruit. Arising from the shadow of mental institutions and personal secret corners comes the Norwegian Urarv ("Ancient Heritage"), the new project spearheaded by avant-metal stalwart Björn Aldrahn Dencker of DHG and The Deathtrip and Thorns fame. "The ideas and visions for Urarv started actually back in 2003 during a stay that I had at the local mental institution where I live," comments Aldrahn. "It began dawning on me one evening as I was locked out on to the perimeter of the facilities to have a stroll."

Limp Bizkit

The original line-up of Fred Durst, Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and DJ Lethal are back from an eight year hiatus to bring their world back to ours. Fred Durst and Wes Borland said in a joint statement:

"We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other. Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back."

Sinbreed

Sinbreed is the project around 27 year old Guitarist Flo Laurin who joined forces with dedicated artists of the European metal scene. The blistering combination of speed, melodic and aggressive arrangements combined with high and soaring vocals characterizes Sinbreed's distinctive Power metal, and they now present their debut album "When worlds collide".

The project has been in the making since the late nineties by founder Flo Laurin, and piece by piece everything has fallen in place; from the style of the music, the influences and the band members. Three demo's were recorded, and the last one was voted "Best newcomer of the month" in Germany's Heavy Magazine. During spring 2009 a deal was made with Sweden's Ulterium Records, and the band started to work hard on their debut album.

Heresiarh

The unheralded Wyverns of the Darkside emerged as phoenix from the ashes of the two oldest Latvian black metal bands, Dark Reign and Alfheim, namely. Ere mid-summer '97 it was when Burial Jester (the musical Namer of the line-up), his brother Kaladun (also in the ranks of Skyforger), and the noble Mourn Majesty of Dark Reign allied with Hater and Morgueldar of the withering Alfheim, and were joined by the charming elven princess Rasa, known from her background chanting experience with Neglected Fields and several other Latvian metal outfits. And thus it came to pass that a brighter constellation was arrayed in the raven skies of all earths - the Winged Constellation - HERESIARH. Under the timeless stare of the eyes of the dead the six heirs of witchcraft laboured for several moons to lay foundations to their euphony. As the approach of lacing melodic and fast black metal music with lead female soprano vocals seemed to be a highly unique idea and the Order felt their creation to stand out of the clichesque genre of evil black metal, they gave it an original name - dragon metal, be it 'epic', 'majestic', 'melodic' or 'romantic'. HERESIARH conjure epic anthems to the glorious Elder days ere the fall of High Sorcery and the passing of the elven-folk, when dragons still crested the sky, the Moon was young, the Earth was vast, sword was the only judge and humanity was in general far closer to the Truth than nowadays. Our music stands for crawling, flying, warring and simply being magic… After several live appearances the band went for a 16-track death metal studio in Riga, and during the last fortnight of the same year recorded its debut demo entitled "Dragons of War", which was released on tape by Morgueldar's k7-label Elven Witchcraft in January '98. Despite the watery production (therefore it stands for the elemental chapter Water) the first six chapters from the Chronicles of Elvenwine received an overwhelming response from the underground press, and have this far spread over 700 copies earthwide...
