Syryn

Sloan Voxx is the lead powerhouse for SYRYN and if you've heard our music or seen our shows, you'll know she's precisely that. Sloan started the project, SYRYN in 2017 with no chance of turning back! The evolution of Sloan's vocal adventure began with Classical and Opera music, steering into the bluesy roots of Aretha and Nina Simone through to Classic Rock, continuing onward to the 80's Hard Rock and finally to her current heartthrob, Metal. If you listen closely, you'll see components of each of these stylings of music in SYRYN's repertoire. This is Sloan's first band and she can't be more excited to get the project off the ground and the music into the eyes, ears, and hands of many! To the depths with you, and into your never-ending nightmare

Bands
Vandenberg

In 1981 van den Berg worked with vocalist Jos Veldhuizen, bassist Griff "Studly" McGrath, and drummer Bico De Gooijer in a band called Teaser. He auditioned for Thin Lizzy, without success. With a new line-up (Bert Heerink (vocals), van den Berg (guitar), Dick Kemper (bass), and Jos Zoomer on drums), Teaser recorded a demo that fell into the hands of pop-journalist Kees Baars. Baars offered to manage the group, and contracted the band at Atlantic Records in the U.S.

Their debut album was recorded at the former Led Zeppelin's guitarist Jimmy Page's studio, Sol Studios, and in 1983 their first single "Burning Heart" reached #39 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts. Vandenberg toured the U.S. as opening act for Ozzy Osbourne and KISS, and toured independently in Japan in 1984. "Different Worlds" from their second album also did fairly well in the charts, but did not equal the success of "Burning Heart".

Bands
Gods Tower

1989-1992
The band started long before 1989. When Urakoff and I were children we used to go for a walk along the district and looked at adult metalheads. The district fought against the district then, and we were fortunate because our district was inhabited by people who listened to Metal. We were surrounded by districts inhabited by young workers who listened to pub music (at the best).

Playing metal was not just comme il faut, it was our duty, and I am not exaggerating if I say that we could not imagine our future without being rock musicians. It was the end of the 80's and Metal was perceived as a rebel weapon. Adults were afraid of us and we were representatives of the informal group. We were looking at dying Soviet fire and dreamt of bright tomorrow, though in our interpretation it took strange shapes.

Leecher

Leecher is Symphonic / Cello Metal band from Hungary with music based on female vocals and cellos instead of guitars, accompanied by drums and orchestra.
Originally formed in 2008, we started like many other bands: playing covers of our favourite songs. After a while, however, original songs were born that demanded their place on the setlist, eventually leading to shows comprised solely of original creations, with covers becoming an occasional addition.
After many years of operating, the band took a turn and became a serious project around 2012-13, with playing in Italy (2013) and winning HammerWorld Hungary's contest as highlights; the latter gave the band the opportunity of recording our first studio album.

The Road Vikings

Fronted by Bay Area Metal Legend Dan Bryant (aka Rock N' Roll Ragnar), The Road Vikings are one hard-scrabbling, indestructible metal bunch. Initially plagued by formidable better-than-fiction personnel issues (think Spinal Tap meets the California Department of Corrections), things finally began to gel in 2014 for the metal underdogs. After searching through piles of drummers and guitarists, each one crazier than the last, the current lineup finally gelled, featuring hard-hitting Dave Dabhammer on drums, Lisa Lightning and Thunder on bass, and most recently, Davey 'The Whiz Kid' Zahalla on guitar. The Road Vikings' sophomore recording, Requiem of an Outlaw Biker, was released to rave reviews with noted knob twirler Tim Narducci at the production helm. Recent runaway video game success began in 2018 which featured "The Ballad of Clutch Nixon" in Ubisoft's best-selling and highly acclaimed video game Far Cry 5, with subsequent inclusion (by fan demand) in Rocksmith 2018, the esteemed guitar instructional platform. The Road Vikings are currently in development with Ubisoft on a new game interface for more advanced players based on the Rocksmith tradition. In addition, the recording momentum continues with esteemed LA musical giant Matt Starr (Mr. Big, Ace Freheley, Joe Lynn Turner/Rainbow) and work on the upcoming 5-song EP, Viking Queen, slated for release in early 2020. Grab your heavy metal armor and climb aboard!
