Dee Snider

After the 1987 dissolution of Long Island pop-metal hitmakers Twisted Sister, frontman Dee Snider embarked on a series of solo and group projects that kept him busy through the '90s.

Snider first formed a new band called Desperado with guitarist Bernie Torme, bassist Marc Russel, and drummer Clive Burr. The group recorded an album, Bloodied But Unbowed, which was never officially released (although some copies did eventually pop up overseas).

Snider next formed the heavier Widowmaker, retaining Russel on bass and recruiting guitarist Al Pitrelli and drummer Joey Franco (a member of Twisted Sister for that group's last album). Widowmaker debuted with 1992's Blood And Bullets and managed to record one more album, 1994's Stand By For Pain, before disbanding.

Quartz

Originating from the heavy metal city of Birmingham, England, Quartz date back to 1974 releasing their first album on Jet Records in 1977 which was produced by Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi.

Quartz were considered to be at the forefront of the NWOBHM boom at the end of the 1970's.

The band toured heavily during this time, playing the Reading Festival three times and touring with of some of the larger hard rock bands of the time.

Quartz appear to have endeavoured to deliver a hard rock sound that was both classic and commercial,the band could certainly deliver the goods courtesy of some twin guitar riffery when needed but would also offer a bit of sophistication too.

Sumerlands

Formed by an all-star cast of scene veterans, heavy metal force Sumerlands burst out of the gates with a fully-formed sound on their Guardian demo in 2014.

The band's sound is one that calls to mind the most learned heavy metal ancestors and the most forward-thinking newcomers: one that sounds old but it feels new. In its short existence, the band has already garnered widespread praise from the likes of Sputnik Music, No Clean Singing and Pitchfork, the latter of which stated that "Sumerlands sound like Cirith Ungol and every lost 80's American power metal band on steroids of steel, getting swole and flexing their might."
