Thornbridge

THORNBRIDGE is founded by Mo & Pat in 2008. Both musicians already know each other from previous projects. Singer and guitarist Mo invents the name of a band whose music and theme quite could appeal to pen & paper freaks. The first own songs are created, the first little gigs are played. Burghi and Lucky bump into the band, after various line up changes. This moment can be described as the actual birth of THORNBRIDGE.

In the years 2014 and 2015, the first album "What Will Prevail" is recorded, produced by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann in the Greenman Studios and refined by the guest contribution of Phillip Schunke (VAN CANTO). Immediately THORNBRIDGE get a record contract with Massacre Records, the album will be released on February 19, 2016.

Bands
Major Kong

Major Kong was born in late 2010 in Lublin, Poland. From the beginning they were a non-vocal trio. Just riffs and heaviness exploding from the guitar, bass, drums, loud amps and large cabinets. Their first recording was "Orogenesis" EP, then in 2012 came the debut album called "Doom for the Black Sun". In 2014 they moved to Warsaw and released "Doom Machine" - the second full-length. A simple joy of playing without any wicked studio-tricks continued with memorable gigs and more sets of tunes published in 2015: a split 12" with Dopelord and an EP entitled "Galactic Cannibalism".

Bands
Malist

The band originated in 2017 from a series of home recording experiences. The artist soon developed a musical concept based on general melancholic mood of the music, minimalistic rhythm guitar-centered arrangements, with some ground for atmospheric digressions. The lyrical themes are inspired by the sheer hostility of life itself.

Shortly after releasing the first track "Spiritual Oppression" via Bandcamp on September 20, 2018, Malist signed a deal with Northern Silence Productions in October. The debut album "In the Catacombs of Time" featuring 10 tracks was released on CD and digitally on January 25, 2019.

Yerûšelem

YERÛŠELEM is the newest entity created by Vindsval and W.D.Feld (BLUT AUS NORD).

The project's name speaks of an incalculable vastness of contemplation within: YERÛŠELEM's sound is a congruent melding of powerfully bass-heavy Godfleshian clank and grind, the sacred ur-texts of Coil and Autechre, stark neo-gothic guitar leads with intimations of fusion, the freshness-into-fetid-air experimentation of back-end '90s Mayhem and Thorns, post-punk urbanity, psychedelic dreamgaze, subterranean industrial pulses and the crunching rhythmic crispness of modernist electronica.

In September 2005 Vascón left the band and since then Winter records bass guitar parts.

Karg

Karg was founded as a one-man Black Metal project in august 2006, what was common at this time. One and only member J.J. (at the beginning of the band still named V.Wahntraum) startet to record first tracks in fall of the same year and created the Demo „Zeitenwende - Martyrium eines sterbenden Traums", which was never released. Two years later in summer, he finished the work on what should be KARG's first real output „Von den Winden der Sehnsucht #1 - …und leiser wehen die Lieder". The first full-lengh had a playtime of 78 minutes that were splitted up into 7 songs that were musically located somewhere between dark Neo-Folk like OF THE WAND AND THE MOON and haunting Depressive Black Metal ala NYKTALGIA and AUSTERE.

Vanaheim

Pagan/folk metal from Dutch ground. Raging primal violence alternates with danceable, heavy and uplifting melodies. The energetic mix between epic pagan metal and the typical, catchy folk metal creeps deep under your skin, and makes you want to move whether you want it or not!

With their EP "The House Spirit" they have performed on many stages already. With their reasonably short existence, they have had the honour to share stages with a number of giants within the folk metal scene. Performances with Heidevolk, Finsterforst and Equilibrium are achievements that the men of Vanaheim are very proud of!
