Ceremonia

Ceremonia was born in 2011 with the idea of creating a cold, dark and melancholic sound to explore the deepest, sad, negative and morbid feelings of the human being through the music.

After line-up changes, the band officially released their self-produced debut album called "La Existencia Humana Debe Ser Un Error" in October 2015

Bands
Defecto

Uncomplicated yet advanced. Solidly based in the metal/rock genre, Defecto delivers modern, alternative, hard-hitting heavy rock with a virtuosity that turns heads everywhere - music that presents itself to rocking out and reflective listening alike.

Defecto arose through the fusion between frontman Nicklas Sonne and the group Deviant. From his teens, Nicklas Sonne was already an accomplished guitarist, but his huge vocal potential drew him towards a solo career as a singer/songwriter. Frederik and Thomas have, since boyhood, been playing together under a succession of band names, continuously dropping jaws of audiences with their technical skills and particular brand of progressive rock.

Ignominious Incarceration

Ignominious Incarceration was formed in summer 2006, with the focus of creating a technical, melodic band.

Touring the UK over the course of 2 years and landing some high profile shows, and putting together an online 6 track demo, in early 2008 Ignominous Incarceration was propositioned to sign with legendary label Earache records. Upon signing, they went into writing over the summer and autumn of 2008, preparing the debut album.

Starting in september, the band experienced a relentless schedule of recording 'Of Winter Born' with Infamous Producer Scott Atkins (Gama Bomb, Sylosis) and then moving straight on to supporting Bring Me The Horizon on the European leg of their tour, playing across the UK with good friends The Argent Dawn and The Eyes of a Traitor, bringing them straight into a full 4 week UK and Europe tour with Beneath The Massacre and Cryptopsy.

Bands
Tysondog

From the North East of England, the band were born from another outfit, who went under the odd name Orchrist in the early 1980s. This lot had a line-up that included the core of Alan Hunter on vocals, Kev Wynn (bass) and Paul Burdis (guitar). These three soon split from the rest to start Tysondog - named after a pet dog called Tyson! - going through a succession of drummers (including one Kev Hunter, brother of Raven's Rob), before settling on Peter Reeve.

The first proper line-up quickly landed a deal with local label Neat (based in Wallsend, the same town where Tysondog were based... coincidence?), having bumped into one of the company's execs in a car park and given him a live tape (true!), and recorded their first single, 'Eat The Rich', in mid -'83, with Hunter by now on vocals and guitar. However, before this was released the 'Dog had expanded to a five-piece, with the addition of one Clutch Carruthers on vocals. He made his recording debut on that single's B-side, 'Dead Meat' - and showed he could roar with the best.

Desolation Angels

Desolation Angels was formed in early 1981 by childhood friends and twin guitarists Robin Brancher and Keith Sharp.
We recruited drummer John Graham from our previous band to pursue a heavier direction, soon to be joined by another old school friend Joe Larner on bass. An ad was placed in Melody Maker for a vocalist and the line-up was completed when Dave Wall auditioned. Being based in the East End of London, we set about writing, rehearsing and building up a local following. During 1981 we put together a couple of rough demos but at that time our main passion was playing live. We soon built up a reputation as a live act on the pub and club circuit. In those days we spent more money putting on a decent show with a huge P.A and lights, than we received from playing.

Saracen

Life-long pals Richard Lowe and Rob Bendelow formed their first band - 'Lammergier' - during the mid 70's, together with folk-guitarist-turned-rock-bassist Barry Yates...

The standard of those 'live' performances, combined with their unique brand of symphonic rock, saw Lammergier amass a large and loyal following of fans. Then a new decade arrived, and with it some major developments for the Matlock-based rockers...

Marseille

In their formative years playing the club circuit in Liverpool Marseille used the name AC/DC until Angus and crew exploded on the UK rock scene in 1976. In awe of the aussies from down under, the band promptly renamed themselves Marseille in mid-1976. We still remain in awe of the aussie rockers to this day!!

Marseille won the first ever UK "Battle of the Bands"

In the first ever UK national "Battle of the Bands" competition in 1977 Marseille appeared with fellow NWOBHM rockers Saxon (then called "Son of a Bitch") in the northwest regional heats at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester. Marseille won the regionals, then went on to win the finals (judged by Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen and the late, great, Mick Ronson of Bowie's "Spiders From Mars") at Wembley in support of Wishbone Ash.

Season's End

Deeply moving and heavy on grandiose atmosphere, soaring vocals and crushing riffs, Season's End's debut album The Failing Light elegantly demonstrates that you need not travel to Scandinavia to find perfectly crafted symphonic metal.

Having spent the last three years honing a sound that transcends the boundaries of gothic metal, this Hampshire based sextet have created an album that is both astoundingly fresh and incredibly mature; qualities that can be attributed to the band's refusal to resort to tired clichés. "We always strive to stay true to ourselves when writing," states lead vocalist Becki Clark, "we don't deliberately try and conform to any stereotypes or conventions; we make the music that we'd like to hear".

Hydra Vein

Hydra Vein was formed in the spring of 1987,when Deathwish bassist Damon Maddison left that band in order to record his own material. Recruiting his brother and likewise ex-Deathwish member Nathan on drums, together with singer Mike Keen, the trio recorded "The Reptilliad" demo in July 1987, augmented by guitarists Dave Brunt (a.k.a. Dave Deathwish) and Alan Wheatley-Crowe. As both guitarists were involved with their own outfits at the time, they appear on the credits listing as "Jack Kartoffel", after a one-liner from the film "Top Secret", though do get a name check in the "Thanks To" section, along with pianist Thomas Foster, who provided the tape's intro. The demo tape garnered decent reviews in the metal press and generated a lot of interest among the cognoscenti of the thrash underground, whereupon the new Metalother label stepped in with an offer of a one-album deal for the outfit. During the intervening period, the band killed off the unfortunate but purely fictional Kartoffel and replaced him with guitarists Stephen Davis and Dan Ranger (who's brother Stuart replaced Damon in Deathwish)
