Fear Of Domination

The story of Fear of Domination began in the summer 2006 when Saku, Jan-Erik and Jaakko started jamming and playing some songs together. FoD was still in a need of a bass player and had also thought of lead guitarist. So they grabbed Lauri with them, and after a while second guitarist Marko too. The first line-up of FoD was ready to go. Marko played with the band a couple of gigs but parted ways with the band only a few months after he had joined.

So FoD continued with one guitarist and played a while with this line-up. In summer 2007 FoD asked Johannes if he was interested to play with them. After a couple of days of thinking Johannes decided to join and brought speed, melody and technique to FoDs music with him. Things worked fine for a year and during that time FoD recorded their first official record, a demo named "Perfect World", and made several gigs across metropolitan area of Hellsinki.

Mantar

Two piece monster from northern germany. debut: "death by burning" recorded in early 2013. no fancy art production -> just raw display of power. the half german / half turkish band exists for not even a year.
true battle hymns and sinister sounds of darkness. no gimmicks, no image, pure rage. bone crushin' like the berzerker's path. in spite of the fact no bassguitar has been used on the record, MANTAR manages to sound even meaner and heavier than a five piece band due to superior skills in general.

Vangough

Oklahoma City based powerhouse VANGOUGH may be named after a post-impressionistic artist, come from a conservative bastion of the U.S. and draw inspiration from a variety of exotic musical styles; yet driven by the explosive, cutting edge vision of guitarist and lead vocalist Clay Withrow, the band's incisive and infectious songs and intense energy requires adjectives far beyond words that describe mainstream artists. So here's an opening attempt: committed to drawing listeners into their melodies before totally upending the tea table, they spit fiery madness by drenching your ears with a purple sunrise of melodic cocaine.

Anthem

Anthem was founded in Tokyo during 1981 as a quartet, composed of singer Toshihito Maeda, guitarist Akifumi Koyanagi, bass player Naoto Shibata (also known as "Ski") and drummer Takamasa Ohuchi. Koyanagi left in late 1983 to be replaced by Hiroya Fukada. In December 1984, vocalist Toshihito Maeda also left and Anthem drafted Eizo Sakamoto for their debut eponymous album, issued in July 1985 by Nexus and licensed to Europe via Roadrunner Records.

Their first studio release featured classic songs like "Wild Anthem" and "Warning Action". The next release, Tightrope showcased a more catchy, melodic sound with an improved vocal performance by Sakamoto. Bound to Break was to be the last album featuring Eizo Sakamoto for nearly two decades, and was by far his most impressive vocal performance to that point. The album was full of classics ("Empty Eyes", "Bound to Break", "Soldiers") and introduced the band's long-time world-famous producer, Chris Tsangarides (perhaps best known for producing Judas Priest's classic 1990 album, Painkiller). With the departure of Sakamoto in 1988, Shibata recruited Yukio Morikawa to the band's vocal position. With Morikawa came the album Gypsy Ways, considered the band's most popular album. Morikawa's voice made the band a great success at that time and he was similar in style, vocal range and ability to Graham Bonnet. In 1989, the album Hunting Time was released and the song "The Juggler" was used as a PV. In the beginning of 90s, Anthem dealt with another departure, this time Hiroya Fukuda (guitar) left and was replaced by Hideaki 'Shadow Walker' Nakama which recorded the album No Smoke Without Fire, this time without the band's staple producer / engineer Chris Tsangarides. Hideaki Nakama left the band after recording just that one album and the search for a new guitarist began.
