De Arma

DE ARMA took concrete shape in 2009, three years after a ghostly vague idea had started to haunt Andreas Pettersson and inspired him to write melancholic music with strong heartening undertones. Soon it became clear to Pettersson that his new band would make other music backgrounds accessible than his black metal and folk endeavors. Drummer Johan Marklund joined and a first EP was recorded, released as split album with UK based metal band Fen, entitled "Towards The Shores Of The End" (Nordvis 2011). DE ARMA's music has a.o. been described as "of melancholic gracefulness with the power to engross" (musikreviews.de) and provoked statements like "it's rare that you hear music so beautiful, especially from the extreme metal end of the spectrum" (seaoftranquillity.org). The debut album "Lost, Alien & Forlorn" was recorded with the help of Frank Allain from Fen, DE ARMA now diving deeper into seven elaborate and personal, nevertheless unhamperedly erupting visions of obsessive feelings and ruminations. This is the soundtrack for the final days when you sit lonely in your room, the bleak light of the atomic winter crawling through the sallow window, watching the walls come down...

Breakdown Of Sanity

The foundation idea of the Swiss Metalcore-Group Breakdown of Sanity was built in spring 2007, when guitarist and songwriter Oliver Stingel began to write new songs at home after the breakup of his former band Paranoia. Shouter Carlo Knöpfel, also known as the guitar player of a band called Nerph, has soon catched the potential in the way Breakdown sounded and quickly decided to be a part of it, with realising some of his ideas. With a programmed drumkit, the two metalcore-maniacs shortly got their own repertoire going, so the decision was clear... a new band has been formed.

Devilment

Originally formed by Daniel J Finch back in late 2011 amidst a bout of religious delirium, the band back then experienced a myriad of problems holding down a stable vocalist (the rope, I believe, was never quite strong enough).

Enter Daniel's friend Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth, Temple Of The Black Moon), who, although not entirely stable mentally, agreed to help out on a couple of tracks, having some time off from his other projects.

'When I heard what Dan Finch was doing, I just had to get my claws into it. It had a unique sound to it that both creepy and heavy but indelibly groovy. I instantly saw where we could take this beast...'

Earthside

Earthside is a New England-based creative collective that plays an absorbing style of modern progressive music they call "cinematic rock." Across their widely acclaimed debut work, A Dream In Static, the seasoned group displays a wild stylistic diversity and creative hunger that jams the mental machinery of comparison. Through organic layers of living, breathing orchestra (courtesy of the Moscow Studio Symphony Orchestra), and an eclectic arsenal of world music-influenced instrumentation, Earthside fashions an ever-changing sound that is equally engrossing alongside a work of cinematic art as it is resonating throughout a densely packed concert venue.

Dynazty

From the nation's capital Stockholm hails Dynazty, already a melodic hard rock household name in their native Sweden. The band was founded in 2007 and reached its current formation a year later with the addition of ace vocalist Nils Molin. To date the band has released five albums, toured internationally, zigzagged Sweden and performed in the insanely popular Swedish Eurovision song contest qualification, Melodifestivalen event.

Dynazty have garnered international praise and scored notable domestic chart positions with their more traditionally hard rocking Knock You Down album and its successor Sultans Of Sin. Criminally overlooked Renatus, saw the band shedding their old school melodic hard rock skin for a sound more modern, more defined and more addictive. Fittingly for its Latin name Renatus saw the band's sound grow tighter with an arsenal of rapid rhythm patters by Olsson & Egg, Lavér's and Magnusson's machine-gun riffs, Molin's ever-present soaring vocals plus huge choruses that stuck in your head like horseflies and featuring melodic hook-lines lesser bands would die for to have written. Sugar-pasted with massive arrangements, Renatus was an album the like of which most bands never manage to write. Yet somehow it managed to fly under the radar.

Vôdûn

Amidst the rushing screams of Mother Earth; the pounding drums of Ouidah; the markets of Lomé and the open heart of Erzulie, there exists Vôdûn.

Born of only 3 comes the embodiment of crushing noise intertwined with enrapturing harmonies.

Ogoun; from a new nation of spirits forged directly in fire, steel and blood - reflecting all the rage, violence and delirium that comes with rebellion. Drums, dancing, and rhythm are offbeat sharp and unforgiving, like the crack of a whip. Ogoun is in love with the noise of battle itself. In salutation, rum is poured on the ground then lit, and as the flames flicker, the beats play on.

Necromancing The Stone

Prepare thyselves, mortals of The Earth, for the end is truly nigh. You've seen the signs: deadly plagues, wars, famines, disasters both natural and man-made, and the continued popularity of monotonous deathcore have all foretold of the impending arrival of The Ultimate Threat, The Bringer of Doom, The Great Evil One Himself, Lord Breakdownicus Gratuitous.

Mankind has but one hope: Necromancing the Stone, the new no-nonsense traditionalist metal band that puts the "awe" in awesome. These five Titans of Metal have been living on our planet for centuries, most recently under the assumed aliases of James Malone (Arsis), Jeramie Kling (The Absence), Ryan "Bart" Williams (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder), and "Big John" Williams and Justin Wood (both of Brimstone Coven notoriety). The mission they have fulfilled for thousands of years: to protect the five fragments of The Earthen Stone, a mysterious and powerful object that is even more of the earth than all other stones (hence the name). But now, with the sinister powers of Lord Breakdownicus Gratuitous growing more gratuitously breakdowny every day, this quintet has united to save the human race, vowing to defeat the nefarious Lord Breakdownicus... with riffs.

Vulcain

The story begins in 1981. Retreated to a cave in the Paris suburbs, two brothers, Daniel (guitar and vocals) and Vincent Puzio (bass), are heat amps with two friends, Didier LOHEZIC (guitar) and Richard (drums). Their shared passion for powerful motorcycles and rock and roll have welded their friendship. They roam a directory playing covers of their idols as Grand Funk Railroad, Ten Years After, ACDC and Motorhead. Quickly around them advised them to form a real band and compose their own music. Richard does not feel the soul of a great drummer and gives a friendly place to another friend of the band, Franck Vilatte. The group works hard and compositions are heavily influenced by Motörhead. It only remains to find a name that represents the rage of these young wolves. He is the cousin of Didier Lohézic, which launched the idea of Vulcan. The Roman god, in the heat of the forge is the "Master of Lightning" and epitomizes the "Force Metal" that drives the quartet. Vulcan was born and will become a legend of French hard rock.
