Disowning

Born with the firm will to create something true to the Death Metal roots yet to bring some freshness to it with elements of Brutal Death Metal and Progressive Death Metal formula yet avoiding the "modern Metal" trend, Disowning, featuring ex-Offending singer Jesus "The Butcher", worked hard to forge its own identity based on very dark melodies, heavy riffing and a dense atmosphere, all topped with a very above-average musicianship not unlike their label-mates of Aa Patres, Insain or Skinned for example.

Night

Night should be spelled 'R.O.C.K.', The Swedish band that started out as a Judas Priest and Saxon worshiping band with their first release in 2012 has now transformed into a timeless and classic rock act with loads of proto-metal influences. Hailed for their wide influences and direct approach the band finds themselves taking new paths in a musical landscape that is well known for all fans of guitar-based music.

Put on your boots and get ready for the next chapter of Night! Imagine a twilight zone where disco didn't die and rock music was allowed inside studio 54!" - Sammy Ouirra.

The Vintage Caravan

With an average age of nearly 24 years old Icelandic Rockers THE VINTAGE CARAVAN show a maturity worthy of any band that has been on the road for decades. When the band got on stage at the 2012 edition of the Icelandic Eistnaflug festival, the trio was only allowed to enter the venue accompanied by their parents. The attending music fans and journalists were therefore not prepared to the following spectacle.

What followed was an astonishing amount of shows: European tours -including UK and Scandinavia- alongside bands as the legendary EUROPE, BLUES PILLS, GRAND MAGUS and ORCHID. In 2016 the band already started going out on their own headline tours across Europe, UK and Latin America. On top THE VINTAGE CARAVAN has played numerous festivals such as Roskilde (2x), Wacken Open Air (2x), Hellfest, Resurrection Fest, Summer Breeze, Graspop, Ramblin' Man Fair, … only to name a few!

Kiko Loureiro

Excuse

One of Finland's hottest newcomers, Excuse began to make a name for themselves with the second, 'Goddess Injustice'. Release to critical acclaim in 2016 by Shadow Kingdom Records, Goddess Injustice largely introduced the fierce foursome to the international metal underground - with a nuclear-powered bang! A finely honed missile of speed metal majesty, Excuse's sound on that EP in many ways recalled the classic Canadian gods Sacrifice and Razor, but there were hints of greater glories to come. And at last, they've arrived with the presciently titled 'Prophets From the Occultic Cosmos'.

Fatal Curse

Hailing from New York, Fatal Curse are a veritable throwback to earlier, simpler times. Theirs is a roots-oriented sound squarely focusing on early speed metal on both sides of the Atlantic and America's contemporaneous power metal movement. No thrashing like a maniac here: Fatal Curse create classy 'n' cruising anthems of ageless heavy metal might on Breaking the Trance!

Indeed, much of Fatal Curse's flash 'n' finesse stems from their power-trio lineup, with each member locked in to the other and pumping out seamless, gleaming-chrome odes to such timeless topics as "Blade In The Dark", "Priestess Of Fire", "Chains Of Eternity", and "Eyes Of The Demon", among others. Nope, you "Can't Stop The Thunder" here, especially those lightning-explosive yet narrative leads at the hands of guitarist Dave Gruver.
