Sammath

Sammath was formed in 1994 by Jan Kruitwagen. Inspired by the new wave of black metal and the speed metal/death metal hybrids of the eighties, Kruitwagen grew up in Australia listening to other acts of a high-intensity caliber. In 1989, he moved to Europe and began to make his mark on the metal scene, working for cult underground magazines such as Violent Moshground and Hell Razor.

Within a year after the band's founding the first promo tape Visions upon Winter Lands was recorded. Soon after this tape, Kruitwagen got in contact with M. Gertsen. Gertsen played only a small role within Sammath, dealing with the recording. The following demo Zwaardbroeders bij de bergengte (Brothers of the Sword at the Mountain Pass) was released in 1996 and sold over 650 copies, thanks to great help from the underground. From the first demo several tracks appeared on compilation tapes worldwide.

Tort

Tort was formed in Barcelona (Catalonia) in 2009 when Ivan Roman on Bass (The Eyes, Warchetype, Cuzo) & Sergio Sancho on lead guitar (Camposanto, Taunus, Cuerno, Lords Of Bukkake) were bored of playing slow & "sad doom metal" and decided to create a new metal band to play faster.

After setting the name of the band, other members like Pep Caravante on drums (Taunus, Camposanto, Warchetype, Cuzo) & vocalist David Bruguera (Warchetype) have joined. Tort had some line-up changes during the first few months of their existence; Ivan Roman left and was replaced by Laurent Py from France and same goes for the drummer Pep Caravante who decided to focus on the other bands he's playing with (like Warchetype & Cuzo) and left the drums mission to Michel (La Matanza, Morbid Flesh, Diseased, Castro, Cuerno). If that wasn't enough, the band also lost their singer, but found Javi Guerrero (Dead Bones). This man fitted perfectly and completed Tort s line up.

The Neologist

The Neologist is a musical endeavor created by James Lewis and Devin Walsh in 2009. Our mission is simple: to create and play the music we are fans of and what we want to hear for ourselves. We played in the band SeVeR for a few years, and when the band went its separate ways, we decided to create The Neologist as a musical outlet with no rules, boundaries, or limitations. As a two-man band we are able to make decisions in 2.3 seconds, have full creative control, and basically do what we want. We do everything ourselves, or with the help of a few friends, from the music, lyrics, artwork, videos, recording...

Heidra

Heidra was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark a dark winter in 2006 by a group of musicians inspired by the more melodic genres of metal. They sought to create music you do not see much in the Danish metal scene that incorporated the harshness of black metal, as well as the symphonic and melodic aspects of, for example, power metal and folk music.

In mid-2007, Heidra had found the right musicians to get the project underway and after playing a few cover songs in the rehearsal room in Gladsaxe, the songs for what would become their first demo, The Saga, were written. In 2008 the demo was released and following the release, Heidra managed to land a warm-up gig for Finnish metal giants Turisas in Copenhagen. This was only their second ever concert.
