Bands
Dyscarnate

The UK's Dyscarnate play their own unique breed of intense, blistering death metal. After devastating venues across Europe, they have become a force to be reckoned with on the frontline of the international death metal scene.

Following the release of the debut EP Annihilate to Liberate in 2008, Dyscarnate were met with overwhelming feedback from national magazines, record labels and fans alike. This resulted in a multi-album deal with the UK's Siege Of Amida Records for Europe and Candlelight Records for the US/Canada. Signing with a label that has become notorious for championing the world's premier extreme artists, (including Annotations Of An Autopsy, Viatrophy and Ingested) provided the band with the perfect platform to release their debut full-length album Enduring The Massacre.

Burning Witches

Burning Witches was founded during spring 2015 in Brugg, beautiful Switzerland, by guitar player Romana Kalkuhl. It has always been her big dream to perform with a women's heavy metal band on stage. During the music university studies she already started her first group: Atlas & Axis with which she has already recorded two albums and played several concerts!

In 2015 Romana started to look for talented ladies for the new combo. Jeanine Grob (bass) a longtime friend, became the first official member. At a party on a festival Romana met Seraina Telli (singer) for the first time. It clicked right away betweens the two girls, on a musical and on a personal level. Seraina brought in many ideas and a lot of experience cause of her studies at the Music Academy and her band Surrilium. The guitarist and the singer became a great songwriting team right away! Romana wrote her mate Schmier from Destruction/Panzer about her new project, he was interested in the new outfit and the ladies brought him onboard as a producer / consultant.

Angelwings

Angelwings were born in April 2013 out of a group of experienced musicians that had been in the local music scene for some time, and who had played in different bands a wide variety of musical genres.

Initially, to gel together as a band it was decided to perform a number of covers from Finnish symphonic metal sensation Nightwish. Soon it became clear to all that original music would have a very considerable element of orchestration. Thus, Angelwings became the first symphonic metal band from Gibraltar.

Bands
Warbeast

With the "retro-thrash" trend in full-swing and hordes of bands trying to re-create "old school metal", Texas monsters Warbeast offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of thrash or classic metal from the 1980's; it just comes naturally because that is who they are. Krush The Enemy, their debut CD on Philip Anselmo's Housecore Records, features 10 tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row. For Warbeast, "metal" means high-speed riffing, thunderous double bass, roaring vocals and plenty of blazing guitar solos.

Kissin' Dynamite

Exciting, dangerous and explosive - that's Kissin' Dynamite. The swabian sleaze mezal commando lives up to it's name, 'cause Kissin' Dynamite is more than just a band, it's an attitue to life. And this feeling is, what those 5 rockstars impart with every second they stand on stage.

What the fans love about this group, that was born in 2006, is entertainment on the highest stage. Due to cool 80ies look, biggest playing passion, accuratest tightness and electrifying stageacting, you get an stimulus overkill, visually as well as acoustically.

Bands
Disperse

DISPERSE inject fresh momentum into the progressive genre. On their second full-length Living Mirrors this young Polish band demonstrates that they have learned the essential grammar of their musical language by heart. There are moments of hovering fluidity taken from the void left by Pink Floyd. You will find the complexities of cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures and all these tools of trade that Dream Theater brought close to perfection. And most of all, there is a strong undercurrent of Cynic's playful approach in elegantly fusing hard Metal sounds with just any style they deem appropriate ranging from Jazz to electronic elements.

Ulsect

It is hard to imagine Tilburg as the heart of darkness. Yet in musical terms, this expression qualifies as an apt description for the homely Dutch city that has spawned such acts as blackened extremists Dodecahedron and rhythmic progressives Textures. Out of this circle, Ulsect have emerged.

The death metal innovators feature guitarist Joris Bonis and drummer Jasper Barendregt from Dodecahedron as well as former Textures bass-player Dennis Aarts. It therefore hardly comes as a surprise that elements of their origins have permeated into Ulsect's eponymous debut album. You will find high technical precision and prowess woven into dense dissonance and lucent atmosphere.
