Kryptos

Kryptos was formed in 1998 and is considered one of the leading heavy metal bands to emerge from India. Since their creation they have released three albums, 'Spiral Ascent' in 2004, 'The Ark of Gemini' in 2008 and 'The Coils of Apollyon' in 2013 all of which are considered cult classics in the Indian Metal underground.

With influences ranging from Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Candlemass to Mercyful Fate, Kreator and Coroner, Kryptos channels the spirit of these 80's metal masters to create a sound that still manages to sound as fresh and vital as it did back in metal's golden years.

Haikai No Ku

By now avid fans of doom and psychedelia will be familiar with Mike Vest's (Bong, 11Paranoias, Blown Out) patented hyper fuzz guitar shrieks and damaged feedback. In Haikai No Ku, he is joined by Jerome Smith (Female Borstal, Charles Dexter Ward) on bass and Sam Booth (Foot Hair, Bin, Obey) on drums to deliver a burgeoning psychedelic doom trip of the highest grade.

Conan

Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the über-synchronized chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalizing wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense.

Way back, in 2006, Conan formed as a two piece. The years dragged by, fellow warriors came and went, and now they are three - Jon Davis on guitar and vocals, Phil Coumbe on bass and vocals and Paul O'Neil on drums. Collectively their plans are clear: they seek nothing less than the crushing of a million skulls.

Mesmur

An echoing thud in the chamber of human suffering, Mesmur tries to capture the sounds of a world that was doomed from the beginning. Led by Yixja, the mastermind that brought to life the progressive black metal band Dalla Nebbia, Mesmur is funeral doom with a little bit extra. Blending influences ranging from the funerary dirges of Evoken to the mesmerizing atmosphere of Neurosis, Mesmur shows versatility in a genre where simplicity usually reigns. Also featuring the agonizing screams of Chris G (Orphans Of Dusk, Intorment Black), the drumming of Alkurion (Dalla Nebbia, Funeral Age), and the bass playing of Aslak Karlsen Hauglid, Mesmur brings you the harrowing sounds of your inevitable demise and is not for the weak at heart.

Xibalba (USA)

Following the initial vinyl release of Xibalba's Madre Mía Gracias Por Los Días debut full-length in 2011, Southern Lord released a CD pressing of the album, as part of its ongoing underground series. Madre Mía Gracias Por Los Días stormed the hardcore world with its apocalyptic, down-tuned, slow-motion brutality, the band's ultra-energizing buildups and relentlessly brutal breakdowns instantly drawing comparisons to Disembodied, Bloodlet, and the heaviest of the late 90s/early 00s hardcore scene and kings of low-end, groove-laden death metal like Crowbar, Obituary and Sepultura.

Abnormal Thought Patterns

Hailing from Northern California, twin brothers Jasun (guitar) and Troy Tipton (bass) along with Mike Guy (drums) are the collective creative force behind Abnormal Thought Patterns. In 2008, Jasun wrote and recorded the 12-minute instrumental "Velocity And Acceleration", the track that would ultimately lead to the founding of Abnormal Thought Patterns.

Upon hearing the song, Troy expressed his desire to put together an instrumental band. The Tipton brothers looked no further than longtime drummer and friend Mike Guy to provide the rhythmic foundation for ATP. The three members then headed to the studio and tracked seven songs for CynNormal Lab Recordings.

August Burns Red

"I definitely don't feel like we're the 'new guys' in the scene anymore. We have our sound figured out at this point," says
AUGUST BURNS RED guitarist JB Brubaker. "But it was time to break some rules."

Since the release of AUGUST BURNS RED's 2009 breakout album, Constellations - which landed the metal juggernauts at #24 on the Billboard 200 - the Lancaster, PA-based genre giants have found themselves in some rather unexpected places. From the cover of Alternative Press to Fox's "American Dad," from the sands of Dubai to the Warped Tour, from Japan to Australia to South America, AUGUST BURNS RED crisscrossed the globe time and again on the road to the top of the hard rock heap.

Today Is The Day

Today Is The Day formed in early 1992 and consisted of guitarist/vocalist/visionary Steve Austin and drummer Brad Elrod. Fed up with what they perceived as a lackluster music scene in Detroit, the pair relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, solidifying their line-up with the addition of bassist Mike Harrel in March 1992. Shortly thereafter, the band released a self-financed 7" EP on their own Supernova Records.

In February 1993, Today Is The Day returned to Detroit to record new tracks, eventually releasing them as a run of limited edition cassettes. One of the tapes fell into the hands of Amphetamine Reptile commander Tom Hazalmayer. By the spring of 1993, Today Is The Day signed to AmRep, and recorded and released their debut album, Supernova, which contained such hits as Black Dahlia"and 6 Dementia Satyr. Today Is The Day were then featured on the Clusterfuck 7"/10" compilation with then-label mates Guzzard and Choke-Bore, and they played 43 shows in the U.S. and 45 gigs throughout Europe with these artists upon the EP's release.

RoadkillSoda

And so, the stoner, sludge, psychedelic and rock'n'roll sounds fusion would become RoadkillSoda, a fresh, intense and unconventional project. Vava, Mihnea's brother from the same mother, promptly took the, often underestimated, role of the bass player, adding a dirty bass sound that does not go unnoticed.

As spontaneous as the entire project, the debut EP A Fucked Up Trip Gone Bad pops up, basically live recording from the rehearsal room and was released in 2011, via Asiluum label.

Orsome Welles

Orsome Welles' music defies any typical classification. An unconventional merge of progressive and heavy, overlaid with an early 20th century style; pounding grooves with a great feel for dynamics and variation, infused with old industrial chic.

The group's ferociously powerful live approach in tandem with the soulful, soaring vocals of enigmatic frontman, Michael Stowers, is a sight to behold.

Their avant-garde show has garnered praise from luminaries of the international progressive heavy scene, and has seen them support the likes of Orphaned Land (Israel) and The Ocean (Germany) and Australia's Ne Obliviscaris, Voyager and Caligula's Horse. In addition, Orsome Welles have been hand-picked to perform at noteworthy local festivals such as Progfest 2013-2014 and Heavy Mag's Brewtality 2014.

Sheavy

Sheavy formed in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in 1993, and originally performed under the name Green Machine.

In 1994, the band discovered there was another band in the United States with the same name, so a decision was made to rename the band Sheavy.

The band's repertoire originally consisted of a sampling of Kyuss covers and an assortment of originals that would eventually make their way onto the Reproduction E.P., Slaves To Fashion, and ultimately Blue Sky Mind. A three-song 7" vinyl record was recorded in early 1995 at Jolly Roger Studios in St. John's.
