Vise Versa

The idea of Vise Versa began early 2012 when vocalist Jon Howard, and guitarist Eddy Chaumulot first met. Eddy's band at the time had invited Jon to perform guest vocals for a song on their new album. Both Jon and Eddy had a passion for 90s grunge/rock music and had always wanted to start a project with a similar sound, combined with a modern edge. After realizing they both had a similar musical goal in mind, they decided to write a few songs together. They began composing during the summer of 2012 and before long their music project was starting to feel like something more... The explosive energy of the songs combined with unforgettable melodies led them to believe they had something special, maybe they could turn their project into a band. At this point, they needed a great bassist and solid drummer to round out the mix. Audrey Henry and Franky Costanza were then approached to join the project and to finish composing the songs with Jon and Eddy. Both Audrey and Franky had similar a musical goal in mind as well, so they were a prefect fit. Vise Versa was born.

Mourning Mist

Mourning Mist was conceived in 2013 by a trio from Perugia; Ecnerual, Chris and Mid. Early in 2014, bass guitarist Kvasir joined the project. The aim of the band is to grow in the metal scene and to grab the attention of all who yearn to share in their mysterious qualities. The band members' determination is to create music that characterizes the Umbrian lands from a "dark" and unconventional viewpoint. Hence their resolve to continue working on new material, for future release, which will develop an expression of the introspection of those who view life through alternative eyes. Despite Mourning Mist's concentration on the creation of new music and the band's aim to record new albums, the future could well hold live performances.

To the date the group has released a six-song EP ("Nothing but Scum") and a full-length album ("Necrokindergarden"). Since their formation, their passion for making music has not declined. On the contrary, they keep the flame of metal alive and expect to consistently deliver brutal music to the world.

The band started in 2006 when guitar player Antonio Palacios decided to partner up with vocalist Guliano Canessa. Both shared the same interest in bringing back the rawness of early death metal. Inspired by such acts as Death, Cannibal Corpse and Monstrosity, they started composing and rehearsing their own songs . 'It was the perfect time to brought that vicious sound back,' stated Antonio. 'I always wanted to be in a group that played this kind of music," added Guliano, pointing to a pile of discs in a shelf where one can distinguish "Spiritual Healing," "Butchered at Birth," and "Imperial Doom."

Last Sacrament

Last Sacrament was formed in 2005/2006 to make death metal, but with a harmonic and melodic difference in its sound. The band experimented with several temperaments before moving to 16-tone around 2008.

In 2012, the band recorded Enantiodromia using an inside-out diatonic moment of symmetry which reverses all major and minor triads found in the standard western musical system.

In 2013, recording for On The Possible Preserved Visual Consciousness In Blindsight began as a metal album exploring high prime harmonics and more theoretical microtonal concepts, in contrast to the previously "claustrophobic" sound.

Christian Death

In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth. Then CHRISTIAN DEATH turned it upside down.

Formed in Los Angeles and fronted by 16 year old vocalist/lyricist Rozz Williams, the band released first album "Only Theatre of Pain" in 1982. A dark, sinister style of punk rock, the album gained local success, but a year later the band completely broke up.

Rozz then joined the band POMPEII 99, founded by singer, guitarist and song writer Valor. Rozz took over vocals, leaving Valor to focus on guitar. Before Rozz joined POMPEII 99, the band had already released their first album "Look at Yourself" to much acclaim, which had an apocalyptic theme with a punk rock flavor. The band had been planning their first tour when the record company proposed to merge POMPEII 99 into a new version of CHRISTIAN DEATH, which after some debate was agreed upon. Thus began the new CHRISTIAN DEATH, and the first POMPEII 99 tour became the first CHRISTIAN DEATH tour.

Toundra

Toundra is a band from Madrid, Spain, formed in 2007 as a phoenix from the ashes of the recently-dissolved Nacen De Las Cenizas, which left a good taste in mouth among both national and international hardcore followers, despite the briefness of their existence. The new creature has decided to dispense vocals and provides us with an entirely instrumental sound where guitars, bass and drums take on the entire role.

After some demos, the quartet introduces itself with its first selftitled album, recorded Carlos Santos (ex-Terroristars) at Sandman Studios with production from Studio Tailor Maid in Sweden by the prestigious Peter in the Betou (Arch Enemy, Opeth etc.). Through the excellent work of both, the band has managed to create the suitable environment for the structures' development and the intensity of highs and lows that characterize the band.

Shepherd

Shepherd is probably the only Bangalore-based sludge/heavy rock band from India. The band has been making waves in the underground, drawing Influence from the guitar-driven sounds of early 90's hard rock (Soundgarden, The Melvins, Eyehategod) and the aural assault of 80's hardcore punk (Black Flag, Discharge, Fear), the band has built a reputation for itself as an ever-evolving and unpredictable heavy rock entity.

Despite a setlist that keeps growing with every gig under its belt, the band takes it a step further by introducing improvisational elements into their music - sort of a rarity in heavy music. Shepherd being the only band of its kind in India has been slowly building a reputation as one of the loudest, heaviest three-piece band to watch out for, ready to take on the rest of the country, and the world.
