Doomraiser

Doomraiser were born having the intention to pay tribute to the music and to the great family of Doom, without imposing to themselves to do it in an original way or to invent anything new, but just to pass, in the best way possible, the feeling the genre has.

The band was formed out of different musical experiences in 2003, and released an excellent demo in 2004. More than 700 copies were spread, and the constant demand forced the band to have it entirely ready for download on their home page.

Thor

Even by heavy metal's innately freaky standards, the artist known as Thor was an absolute superfreak, Straight-faced Norse god impersonator, semi-professional bodybuilder, on-stage wrestler, all-around performance artist (known to bend a steel bar between his teeth), sometime actor, and, even occasional rock & roll singer, Thor (full fake name Jon Mikl Thor) was a Vancouver, Canada, native with a flair for both theater and music. Although most heavy metal fans would only become aware of his antics in the mid-'80s, the roots of Thor's act hail all the way back to the early '70s, when the still teenaged winner of the Mr. Junior Canada bodybuilding title decided to parlay his sudden celebrity into a full-on character based on the ubiquitous Viking god of thunder.

Doom

Doom began as The Subverters with Bri Doom (guitar), Jon Pickering (bass/vocals) and Jason (Hog) Hodges (drums). About the time Hog was replaced by new drummer, Mick Harris (Napalm Death), the band changed its name to DOOM.

This line up played one or two gigs, playing in a crossover metal style. Bri and Jon decided this wasn't the direction they wanted the band to move in. Consequently they left Harris and the metal style of music, and decided to go in a Discharge-influenced crust-punk-style that Doom became known for. Pickering dropped bass to concentrate on vocals and Pete Nash joined as bass player. Harris left for Napalm Death so new drummer 'Stick', recently made band-less, joined after a drunken meeting at the infamous Mermaid Pub, this was when the 'real' Doom was formed. The band started rehearsing with this line-up in mid 1987.

Opus Doria

The Opus Doria project took life in the fall of 2009, with compositions mixing the lyricism and rigour of classical music and the rythmic power of metal, and some allusions to epic film music. "Opus" relates to the marking of classical pieces with numbers, as "Doria" stands for the dorian mode to suggest the modal sonorities we find in medieval and baroque music. The first point was to compose and build up a coherent repertory, while searching for the right musicians. Those were finally found after several line-up changes, Opus Doria is on the right path and is fiercely defining its identity: classical and symphonic music combined with powerful riffs from heavy and progressive metal. A powerful lyric voice, the omnipresence of keyboards and cello, the contrast between shadows and light, lyrics inspired with allegory, dreams and spirituality make up Opus Doria's universe. The band is now getting ready to promote its first album Infraworld and looking for concerts.

Fister

Fister is a three piece doom metal band from St. Louis, Missouri. The band incorporates heavy influences from the black and death metal genres into a depressing sludge spewing heaviness that many have attempted, but few have mastered. Fister's latest full-length Gemini is a testament to this, as the band captured the aural equivalence to watching a Cronenberg film on barbiturates. The band recently reunited with producer/engineer Gabe Usery for their newest installment of dread inducing heaviness as an offering for their newest split with Oregon's Norska.

Downfall Of Gaia

Dark, ominous, yet not completely hopeless, Downfall Of Gaia's music is as uplifting as it is overwhelming. The aural peaks and valleys fill the often lengthy tracks with a rewarding listening experience.

The quartet was founded in the middle of 2008 and, after a few member changes, ended up with their current lineup: Dominik Goncalves dos Reis (guitars + vocals), Peter Wolff (guitars + vocals), Anton Lisovoj (bass + vocals), and Johannes Stoltenburg (drums). The members of Downfall Of Gaia reside in various cities throughout Germany. Their practice space, however, isn't in one of the common German fashion cities like Berlin or Hamburg, but in Hannover, a city many people connect to the Scorpions. Not to a sound that is reminiscent of an avalanche of black earth, boulders, and mud.

Amenra

Formed in these forsaken fields of West-Flanders Belgium, Amenra has been conjuring unholy masses since 1999. Spreading their vision of a world that's out of touch with its past, present and future, they take their adepts through a world of unseen mystique. Their postmodern vision of music, existing of droning, repetitive chords alternated by gut wrenching hauls will make an experienced listener renounce his definition of music, perhaps even his whole belief system.
