Dictator

The sombre being known only as Dictator passed away some time in the middle of Anno MMV. Dictator ended his own life; thus beginning a sinister journey through the halls of Death. Initially experimentating with harsh cosmic resonances and piercing feedback reverberations bordering on music; analog and digital Noise harshness enveloped and shrouded in cavernous Dark Ambient soundscapes - an exploration of the decadence of existence while delving deep into the chaos of the human psyche. This early experimentation had one release see the dark of night after several months of torture in the dungeons known as Necrosadistic Studios. "Fog of Death" was released via the internet, demonstrating a uniquely chaotic and tormenting approach to Dark Ambiance and Noise.

Bands
Oh, Sleeper

Oh, Sleeper was founded in April 2006 after former member, Ryan Conley, of the short-lived rock band Terminal got together with former Evelynn and Between The Buried And Me guitarist Shane Blay and former Terminal bassist Lucas Starr (who was at the time with As Cities Burn). Eventually they found a vocalist in Micah Kinard and began practicing. The four members experienced typical problems of a band start-up (no place to practice, no money and different schedules), but the biggest obstacle was finding the final member. Countless awkward auditions failed to fill the missing position, until long time friend and fellow Terminal member James Erwin was found. After his addition to the lineup, the band released an EP, titled The Armored March, through 1x1 music.

Corporation 187

Hailing from Linkoping in Sweden, Corporation 187 might have been expected to follow the traditional Swedish path and form a melodic death metal band like so many of their contemporaries. However, guitarist Magnus Pettersson, fellow axe-meister Olof Knuttsson and drummer Robert Eng came together in the early 90's via a love for all things thrash, and especially the thrash band to end all thrash bands, Slayer.

In homage to their heroes the three friends initially started out as a Slayer cover band in 1995 recruiting Pelle Severin on vocals and Filip Carlsson on bass. Though Filip would eventually quit the line up he would return later in the band's story.

Sannhet

Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as SANNHET has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn's broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, SANNHET's sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold... The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.

Alpha Tiger

Germany's Alpha Tiger are living proof for the fact that traditional heavy metal does not necessarily need to be created by elderly people and the band's hard-hitting second album and Century Media debut Beneath The Surface kicks rusty rockers out of their wheelchairs with its remarkably fresh take on early Helloween and Queensryche - perfect metal pleasure guaranteed!

Thoroughly hailed in the national and international metal scene for its 2011 debut Man Or Machine (Sonic Attack Records) and much celebrated shows at German cult festivals Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Rock Hard festival as well as France's finest Hellfest, Alpha Tiger quickly became one of Germany's hottest heavy metal newcomers (e.g. #7 in the newcomer category of Rock Hard's reader's poll 2011).

At The Lake

At The Lake's music combines elements of folk, Celtic and classical music with heavy metal sound. The extensive use of the violins played by Milena (leader and composer) gives the music its unique character. The band re-recorded their demo together with two new songs.

Evil Twin

Band was brought to its genesis in 1999 a.d. by myself, Marcin Maksymowicz (Max). The music, which is created by Evil Twin is akin to such metal bands playing within the genres of black, death or even doom. It is difficult to speak of the actual establishment of a goal, to which the founding of this project could be put down to...

The first tracks came to light even before the year of 1999. To be honest, at first, the music which was created wasn't taken too seriously by me, the creator, although after a certain while my mind began to change the course on the direction the sounds were beginning to go. In this way, the first real recordings of Evil Twin came into existence. At the start, many tracks were left to the abyss of the forgotten until I decided upon a selection of the best, which soon became the first album - To Your God...

Iron Butterfly

The Los Angeles music climate of the late sixties and seventies was characterized by the heavy sounds and sentiments that reflected the revolutionary attitudes of the generation. Bursting onto that scene was a new group whose sound not only epitomized the hard attitudes of the youth with its heavy drumming and bass lines, but also embraced more delicate aspirations through its intricate guitar and keyboard overlays.

Iron Butterfly was signed to ATCO records (a division of Atlantic Records) in the spring of 1967 and released their first album, aptly titled Heavy, the following winter. While the band was on the road with the likes of: The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Traffic, The Who, and Cream, their impressive debut stayed on Billboard's album charts for almost a year.

Hierophant

Italy's Hierophant have been making waves since their formation back in 2010 and are excited to call Bridge Nine Records their new home. The band caught the attention of the label with their self-titled first album in 2011, which CVLT Nation called "straight killer no filler". The band went on to tour Europe with the likes of Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, Tombs, Pelican, Cancer Bats and many more, and made an intense and relentless live reputation for themselves. Now, Hierophant is gearing up to release their Bridge Nine debut, Great Mother: Holy Monster in the Spring of 2013. The band commented, "It is an absolute honor for us to be a part of Bridge 9's roster - it's one of the greatest hardcore labels, it has survived and is still around for a reason. It's a dream for us, and we couldn't have thought of any better conditions to release Great Mother: Holy Monster in. Stay tuned, it should be a great year!" Great Mother: Holy Monster was recorded in late 2012 by Steve Scanu and Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio and mixed by Lorenzo Stecconi and mastered by Alan Douches, and is an 8-song monster of an album and the band's most mammoth-sounding recording yet.
