Bands
Sinbreed

Sinbreed is the project around 27 year old Guitarist Flo Laurin who joined forces with dedicated artists of the European metal scene. The blistering combination of speed, melodic and aggressive arrangements combined with high and soaring vocals characterizes Sinbreed's distinctive Power metal, and they now present their debut album "When worlds collide".

The project has been in the making since the late nineties by founder Flo Laurin, and piece by piece everything has fallen in place; from the style of the music, the influences and the band members. Three demo's were recorded, and the last one was voted "Best newcomer of the month" in Germany's Heavy Magazine. During spring 2009 a deal was made with Sweden's Ulterium Records, and the band started to work hard on their debut album.

Heresiarh

The unheralded Wyverns of the Darkside emerged as phoenix from the ashes of the two oldest Latvian black metal bands, Dark Reign and Alfheim, namely. Ere mid-summer '97 it was when Burial Jester (the musical Namer of the line-up), his brother Kaladun (also in the ranks of Skyforger), and the noble Mourn Majesty of Dark Reign allied with Hater and Morgueldar of the withering Alfheim, and were joined by the charming elven princess Rasa, known from her background chanting experience with Neglected Fields and several other Latvian metal outfits. And thus it came to pass that a brighter constellation was arrayed in the raven skies of all earths - the Winged Constellation - HERESIARH. Under the timeless stare of the eyes of the dead the six heirs of witchcraft laboured for several moons to lay foundations to their euphony. As the approach of lacing melodic and fast black metal music with lead female soprano vocals seemed to be a highly unique idea and the Order felt their creation to stand out of the clichesque genre of evil black metal, they gave it an original name - dragon metal, be it 'epic', 'majestic', 'melodic' or 'romantic'. HERESIARH conjure epic anthems to the glorious Elder days ere the fall of High Sorcery and the passing of the elven-folk, when dragons still crested the sky, the Moon was young, the Earth was vast, sword was the only judge and humanity was in general far closer to the Truth than nowadays. Our music stands for crawling, flying, warring and simply being magic… After several live appearances the band went for a 16-track death metal studio in Riga, and during the last fortnight of the same year recorded its debut demo entitled "Dragons of War", which was released on tape by Morgueldar's k7-label Elven Witchcraft in January '98. Despite the watery production (therefore it stands for the elemental chapter Water) the first six chapters from the Chronicles of Elvenwine received an overwhelming response from the underground press, and have this far spread over 700 copies earthwide...

Hyperion

Hyperion was formed in 2007 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Foehammer

Hailing from the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, Foehammer's music belies its bustling surroundings. Rather, Foehammer conjure the creeping tectonic progression of transform faults, culminating in releases of sound waves the magnitude of which is best measured by seismometers. In keeping with the appropriate timescale, each of the three funeral doom epics on Foehammer's debut EP clock in past the 9 minute mark. Foehammer is doom metal in the truest sense of the appellation, crushing, unrelenting and suffused with a foreboding of cataclysm that smothers each of the EP's all-to-brief 34 minutes. Foehammer's rupturing first salvo will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Graves At Sea, Warhorse, Corrupted, Hell, Buried at Sea and other purveyors of the slow.

Bands
Sanhedrin

Formed in 2015 by New York heavy music veterans Erica Stoltz (ex-Lost Goat, ex-Amber Asylum), Jeremy Sosville (also of Black Anvil), and Nathan Honor (ex-Vermefug), Sanhedrin's sound is familiar but not derivative. A band rooted in classic heavy metal and hard rock, but unafraid to cross genre boundaries. Lyrically, Sanhedrin often forgoes the traditional fantasy-based themes found in much heavy metal in favor of more real-life themes of inner struggle and social commentary.

2015 saw the release of their cassette demo, followed by several shows in 2016. Sharing bills with Acid King, Satan ,Magic Circle, Khemmis, and many others, Sanhedrin have always held their own with tight, high-intensity performances. In October of 2017, Sanhedrin released their acclaimed debut LP "A Funeral For The World". Tracked and mixed at Menegroth Studios in Queens, NY by renowned engineer Colin Marston, this LP is a collection of 8 songs spanning a wide array of emotions and sounds.

Summon

Summon emerged in late 2016 in a gathering between N. and R. in which they decided to follow a sonority that transcends their souls, and where they could give it a more cavernous feel, with an intensity of deep agony. Shortly thereafter, N. decides to move forward with composite themes, and then they decide to call J. to seal the covenant of a deadly entity. The lyrics are in charge of N. in which he invokes all the blackness and splendor of Death, the burden of enduring and wandering in a world of human flesh, and the infinite thirst for mass slaughter converting mankind into a cloak of bones. Death is our guide, and we are His scythe.

Refuge

Once upon a time, there were three young rockers, that were meant to write Heavy Metal History. Peavy Wagner, Manni Schmidt & Christos Efthimiadis released 5 albums in one of the most successful line ups of their former Band Rage and set the boundaries for a name, that is still successful.

Many young people were influenced by those top seller albums and still today, those songs belong to their most wanted list. After 1994, the three musicians worked and work in different Bands and continued to follow a successful musicianship: Peavy (Rage), Manni (ex-Grave Digger), Christos (Tri State Corner).
