Bands
Crimson Sun

Known for their gripping live performances and catchy sounds and melodies, Crimson Sun has reached a completely new level with their currently released new songs. The band aims to find new dimensions and different sounds for every song. The new songs are more straightforward and heavier than before but the band has still not forgotten their versatility. Every song has its own story, in which the listener can relate to through the atmosphere created by the sounds and profound lyrics.

Crimson Sun was founded in 2001 in Hamina by Joni Junnila (guitars) and Teemu Hankanen (vocals & guitars). Later Tomi Paronen (drums) and Jukka Jauhiainen (bass) joined the band, and the first gigs were made in 2003 under the name "Lucretia". After some line-up changes in 2004 the guitarist Joni and Jonne Taavitsainen, who was at the time playing drums in the band, decided that the band's aims were higher than playing just as a hobby. In 2005 the band performed as a supporting act for Pelle Miljoona in Hamina under the name "Cryptic". At that time the band was searching for a new singer and after many candidates, Sini Hanttu joined the band. The first gig with a new line up was in the winter 2005 in a band competition at "Seukkarit" and the band shared the first place in the audience voting.

Melted Space

Melted Space is a project created in 2007 by pianist and composer Pierre Le Pape (Wormfood, Embryonic Cells).

A world that would be the last step of Dante's journey, a world occupied by lost and forgotten souls which tell their adventures to travelers. Sunk into oblivion, this is their only way to perpetuate their memory.

Symphonic Destiny

The band Symphonic Destiny was formed in 2014 and it was based on the idea of Norbert Gobor and Attila Toth, the two musician friends. They wanted to make music and during that process to create something new. Meanwhile Norbert asked his good friend, Timea to join the group as a singer, and after that he wrote 3 demo songs. The three members of the group decided to take the songs, which were written in the spirit of symphonic metal, in the studio.

Attila asked his friend, Jozsef Bacso to join in the band and during August and September in 2014, all of them started to work on the project in the studio. That's how their debut album, Midnight, was born which tells a story about a fantastic journey and was released in October 2014.

My Sleeping Karma

My Sleeping Karma is a German instrumental quatuor that takes you into a mind-blowing sonic experience. Their music is a trip. They are no beginners, no amateurs,and when they hop on stage they make you forget about everything around you: they take you by the hand into the deepest and hidden corners of your very soul.

The fourth album Soma follows the band's own individualistic and atmospheric path towards enlightenment. Following the meaning of the album title ("Soma" is the intoxicating drink of the gods), the instrumental psychedelic groove rock of the German quartet enhances the consciousness in a truly hypnotic and bewitching manner. The multilayered compositions move skilfully between heavy rock riffs and enchanting melodic parts with a high level of calmness and beauty.

Agent Fresco

Sometimes, you can feel where a band is from. Agent Fresco are as untamed, graceful, momentous, dangerous and unpredictable as the land they come from. Agent Fresco are from Iceland - a country almost impossible not to be influenced by. "Living in a country that has summers of non-stop light and winters of almost complete darkness is bound to have an impact on your state of mind," says vocalist, composer and frontman Arnór Dan Arnarson. So that's settled.

Agent Fresco's music is a reflection of this ever-changing landscape, with its overwhelming sense of freedom and vastness. This is a progressive Art Rock band that needs to be experienced from a few steps back to be grasped in its entirety, like a bold work of art. In the last couple of years, their iridescent, propulsive, arty and highly addictive music made the highly esteemed Reykjavik band - comprised of Arnór Dan, Þórarinn Guðnason, Hrafnkell Örn Guðjónsson and Vignir Rafn Hilmarsson - become the favourite of a music-loving nation and an act sparking international interest. Or, to use the words of MTV's own Halley Bondy: "By and large one of the best bands to come out of Iceland". And this in a country with a higher band per capita ratio than most others!

Magister Templi

Magister Templi first saw the light of day in a pub in Oslo 2008 when singer Abraxas d'Ruckus and bass player Baphomet decided it was about damn time to make some songs together, based on a no rules concept. It started as a strange, slightly folky hard rock group with violin (and no guitars). The lyrics took a more esoteric turn, drawing heavily on imagery from alchemy and ritual magic and a heavier sound and guitars were introduced.

After a few lineup changes and the recording of a demo Lucifer/Restoration, guitarist Patriark and drummer Grimmdun from the black metal band Svarttjern joined, which pushed Magister Templi further in the direction of old school heavy metal and doom. Baphomet took over the second guitar and Akoman joined the band on bass which culminated in the EP Iao Sabao!.

Karyn Crisis' Gospel Of The Witches

KARYN CRISIS is a name worthy of more praise and attention. While select circles of people know and appreciate her prior vocals with the critically-acclaimed Crisis from 1993-2006 many are still naive to her influence and impact. This demure girl raged harder than many men slugging it out with impactful live performances at hardcore and metal shows screaming oftentimes like a demon, others singing like an angel. She led the way and has become an influence for female-fronted extreme bands. And then she disappeared… until now.

It is in 1999 that Dirty Shirt receives the first award at Top T Buzau Festival, which consists of a studio record.

Marriages

The Los Angeles-based trio first began in 2011 as a collaborative effort between former Red Sparowes members Emma Ruth Rundle (guitar, vocals) and Greg Burns (bass, keyboards). Showcasing Rundle's exceptional playing more vividly than the dense architecture of the Sparowes could allow, Marriages' departure from purely instrumental rock, too, helped bring her to the forefront, revealing a voice equally fragile and ferocious. Enlisting Sparowes drummer Dave Clifford, they recorded Kitsune, released on Sargent House in 2012. Subsequent touring with Russian Circles, Deafheaven and others honed their vision while introducing the band to a broad cross-section of heavy music fans. Full time drummer Andrew Clinco completed the equation in late 2012, the final component in Marriages' frequently epic postpunk-by-way-of-stoner-rock sound. While the group busied themselves writing the songs that would become Salome, Rundle issued solo album Some Heavy Ocean in early 2014, earning praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, etc. Promoting that record found her touring the US as direct support to King Buzzo of the Melvins, immediately after which Marriages set out on tour once more, this time with the legendary Boris.
