Dark Forest (UK)

Dark Forest was forged in the Black Country, England by guitarist Christian Horton. For over a decade they have been delivering their uniquely rousing, defiant heavy metal to the world. With the release of their self-made EPs in 2007, the band quickly gained the attention and support of the heavy metal underground, both in England and abroad, and then went from strength to strength, gigging across Europe and the UK and releasing their self titled debut album in 2009. The cult EP Defender was released the same year followed by their second album, Dawn of Infinity, in 2011. By this point Dark Forest had succeeded in mastering their own instantly recognisable sound, heavily incorporating traditional twin guitar work, interlaced with subtle medieval and folk melodies. After battling through a series of line up changes Dark Forest then released The Awakening, the band's third full length album, in 2014. This album was recorded in 444hz, rather than the standard 440hz, the decision being made after studying Solfeggio frequencies and has remained the band's preferred tuning ever since.

Dawn Of Disease

Dawn Of Disease was originally founded in 2003. One year later they released the MCD Through Bloodstained Eyes, which was sold out within a short time. Despite several performances with popular bands, 2007 marked the end of the band. After numerous line-up problems Dawn Of Disease finally dissolved. But the resurrection with a new line-up didn't take a long time...

In spring 2009 co-founder and singer Tomasz decided to bring Dawn Of Disease back into being with a nearly completely new line-up. Beside drummer Mathias, who had already been a member of the last known line-up, Lukas (guitars) and Olli (guitars) joined the band. A little later bass player Michael completed Dawn Of Disease.

Night Viper

Night Viper are a hot-rockin' heavy metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The first two ingredients in the Viper pie were Sofie Lee Johansson and Tom Sutton (Horisont, The Order Of Israfel, ex-Church Of Misery). As soon as they met, the chemistry started flying and some pure fist-banging heavy metal demos were thrown down. They were joined briefly by Sven Nilsson from Antichrist on drums as well as a few others on guitar and bass, but it was once swing master Jonna Karlsson was behind the kit that things started really moving. The folk-tastic stylings of Emil Ridderstolpe on guitar and the fast fingers of Ruben Åhlander Persson (Miasmal) on bass completed the lineup. They played their first show in Summer 2014, and since then have played at Heavy Days In Doomtown, Muskelrock and Geggan festivals to great success, along with gigs throughout Sweden. October marks their first European tour, with shows in Germany, Denmark and The Czech Republic with good friends Demon Head. They have released a single through Svart Records, and are again working with the label for the release of Night Viper, set to be released on CD, LP, and digital formats.

Vörgus

At the dawn of the new millenium, four metalheads united to create the loudest music ever to hit the ears of this feeble race called mankind. Within six months they had recorded their debut demo "VÖRGUS is the law", containing 20 songs of pure mind melting metal. Less than a year later, it was time to record the follow-up "The evil dominator", with Mike Wead (King Diamond/Mercyful Fate) as producer. By the end of 2001 VÖRGUS parted with lead singer Oppegaard, due to lack of engagement. In mid 2002 they visited Necromorbus studios for the recording of the third demo "Pure Perkele", taking the VÖRGUS sound to a higher, more brutal level. The vocals were now handled by bassist Nenne Vörgus. By 2004 VÖRGUS had managed to create the perfect synthesis of death/thrash/speed and classic heavy metal riffing.
