Borgne

Hailing from Switzerland, and thus being the first group from outside of Québec signed on Sepulchral Productions, Borgne plays cold, mechanical and inhumane Industrial/Black Metal, as martial as it is hypnotic. Do not expect any lame techno beats here, only blistering Black Metal done in a more "synthetic" way, with a dense, suffocating sound and some dark ambient passages.

Arion

Finland's newest melodic metal sensation Arion came out from the woodwork and dropped on the scene like a bomb. Comprised of a trio of 17 and 18 year old music students from Sibelius Lukio and their equally accomplished muso friends, Arion wrote their debut song "Lost" - a versatile piece of symphonic melodic metal - in the summer of 2012, entered it to the Eurovision song contest's Finnish qualification and found themselves in the nationally televised qualification rounds. Perplexed in the midst of the TV hoopla and everything therein, still trying to get to know each other as a band mates, Arion were already getting the first taste of celebrity treatment. After 3 televised performances, Arion's song sensationally wound up 5th among 540 songs and got nationwide applause and airplay.

Void Of Sleep

Void Of Sleep is a band hailing from Ravenna, Italy. Formed in 2010 by Gale (guitar), Burdo (vocals and guitar) Allo (drums) and Paso (bass). In a few months the result of many rehearsal is a blend of sludge, psychedelic, stoner and progressive sound where epic rhythms melt with doom slowdowns, complex time signatures and "musical storms".

By the end of the year, after almost eight months since the new line-up had been defined, the band makes its first live appearance and in the following months it shares the stage with many international bands. In June 2011 it's time for the band to enter the Studio73 to record their debut EP under the direction of bass player and renowned producer Paso (winner of an Independent Music Awards in 2012 and also producer for Ephel Duath, Extrema, At The Soundawn, The Secret, The End of Six Thousand Years...).

Whispering Woods

The idea of Whispering Woods came to life during 2008 when two good friends decided to start a musical project which would have as a main character the symphonic genre. Even though it was a common genre at the time and many bands had both commercial and stage success, the idea was kept alive by the thought of making a kind of musical show based on a conceptual idea. Thus, the songs which developed in time to form the debut album, Fairy Woods, are sustained by a concept story in which the listener is the main character who takes part in an imaginary journey through a mystical place where everything is possible.

Apotheosis

Apotheosis (Malta) was born in late '93. Practical in the areas of ambient electronic music and heavily impressed by the intense sound and atmosphere of Black Metal of the early 90s, the creator and sole member of the project, Sauron, embarked on a quest to blend these two dimensions of music. Armed with only an Amiga computer (8 bit sound, only 4 voice polyphonic and 1 megabyte of ram), an old 4 track, a cheap reverb box and a microphone, he set out to make these two intense areas of music converge into one style. And attempt to cope with the ratio of a ton of ideas to a very restricted audio setup. The earliest Apotheosis material was quite primitive. It hovered more along the ambient zone with textures and passages derived from the cryptic and cold realms of Black Metal. After a year of experimentation, the material recorded was clearly showing the evolution of this project, from rudimentary ambient passages to properly organised guitars, to vocals.

Stone Division

Back in early 2011 after the split-up of their previous band, Oskar and Niclas were determined to keep making music and finish the album that they had already started recording. This was the start of a very long process. To summarize it - three session-drummers, two session lead guitarists and six different recording places.

With a finished album in their hands they teamed up with their longtime friend and great drummer Tommy "Thrash" Carlsson and lead guitarist Tommy Mattsson and became Stone Division.

The Sabbathian

The Sabbathian comprise two fundamental elements - doom metal, and the occult forces of nature and energy. These elements brought together three individuals in the form of The Sabbathian. Taking their roots to the core of true, heavy, darkened metal, The Sabbathian draw an unparalleled ion from the likes of Candlemass and Black Sabbath, all while retaining a sound very personable to them.

Formed by Chad Davis, the journey is to create music for the hours of darkness and gloom. Joined by guitarist Joey Downs, his contribution adds the element of power and everything the sense of heavy. Featuring the sheer vocal beauty of Anette Gulbrandsen at the forefront, her alto/soprano vocal stylings bring forth medieval choirs and haunting apparitions that complete what is The Sabbathian: a journey into darkness, a voyage into the cosmic void unknown.

Lords Of The Trident

Fang VonWrathenstein was born when a volcano containing metal and steel erupted at the beginning of time. His one and only mission - create the most metal band in the world. He searched across the land for many centuries, until during his travels in Greece, he heard the sound of sweep picking emanating from a cave. After fighting off the man-eating bats with his bare hands, he came upon the one known only as the Socrates of Shred. Socrates imparted his sage advice upon Fang, and the next stop was the top of the tallest mountain in Japan - Mt. Yuufretokuwiku. Quickly ascending the treacherous mountain by riding on a cloud of pure shredding guitar, they met the fierce guitar warrior known as Asian Metal. After a three day battle that left most of the surrounding mountainside in ruins (and most of its inhabitants deaf), Asian Metal decided to join the warriors on their quest.
