Omb

Long gone promises, frustration, sex, ADHD and personality disorders, low self-esteem versus delusions of grandeur, love, failures, and the constant need for self-expression - these are the things dreams are really made of.

Omb started as a 3 piece project from Haifa, Israel. Formed by Or Rozenfeld (Bass ,Contrabass), Davidavi Dolev (Vocals) and Yuval Tamir (Drums, percussions) at the end of 2009 as a traditional 5 piece act.

They performed under the name Of Marble's Black within the Israeli metal scene and harvested great superlatives from local critics. However, the guys were looking for something more than the usual construction of a song. After a year of live playing, bored by today's metal scene, the band decided to focus only on searching after the music which will become the band's first album - SwineSong (Recorded between march 2012 - june 2012).

Saeko

Saeko was born in 1974 in Osaka, Japan. At age 14, at a time when she was suffering a lot of emotional turmoil in her life, she happened to hear "heavy metal/hard rock" for the first time, such as Helloween, Europe, Pretty Maids, Queensryche etc. She felt messages through this powerful music which was an amazing, pivotal experience for her. She felt something in her heart told her that she was born to do this music, and she vowed to herself 'I'll go on tour overseas with my own heavy metal band someday'. This determination stayed with her. She formed several bands at schools, but couldn't be satisfied with any of them.

Sedna

Sedna is a three pieces black metal project born in 2009 in Cesena, Italy. The sound is a mix of post black metal, sludge and doom metal with some ambient and drone parts that give at the results much more sense of perdition and immersion. From furious blast-beats, passing through cadenced heavy parts, reaching soft and expanded clean parts, the band try to carry emotions and feelings to create music organic and alive.

No politics. No religions.

Dictator

The sombre being known only as Dictator passed away some time in the middle of Anno MMV. Dictator ended his own life; thus beginning a sinister journey through the halls of Death. Initially experimentating with harsh cosmic resonances and piercing feedback reverberations bordering on music; analog and digital Noise harshness enveloped and shrouded in cavernous Dark Ambient soundscapes - an exploration of the decadence of existence while delving deep into the chaos of the human psyche. This early experimentation had one release see the dark of night after several months of torture in the dungeons known as Necrosadistic Studios. "Fog of Death" was released via the internet, demonstrating a uniquely chaotic and tormenting approach to Dark Ambiance and Noise.

Bands
Oh, Sleeper

Oh, Sleeper was founded in April 2006 after former member, Ryan Conley, of the short-lived rock band Terminal got together with former Evelynn and Between The Buried And Me guitarist Shane Blay and former Terminal bassist Lucas Starr (who was at the time with As Cities Burn). Eventually they found a vocalist in Micah Kinard and began practicing. The four members experienced typical problems of a band start-up (no place to practice, no money and different schedules), but the biggest obstacle was finding the final member. Countless awkward auditions failed to fill the missing position, until long time friend and fellow Terminal member James Erwin was found. After his addition to the lineup, the band released an EP, titled The Armored March, through 1x1 music.

Corporation 187

Hailing from Linkoping in Sweden, Corporation 187 might have been expected to follow the traditional Swedish path and form a melodic death metal band like so many of their contemporaries. However, guitarist Magnus Pettersson, fellow axe-meister Olof Knuttsson and drummer Robert Eng came together in the early 90's via a love for all things thrash, and especially the thrash band to end all thrash bands, Slayer.

In homage to their heroes the three friends initially started out as a Slayer cover band in 1995 recruiting Pelle Severin on vocals and Filip Carlsson on bass. Though Filip would eventually quit the line up he would return later in the band's story.

Sannhet

Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as SANNHET has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn's broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, SANNHET's sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold... The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.

Alpha Tiger

Germany's Alpha Tiger are living proof for the fact that traditional heavy metal does not necessarily need to be created by elderly people and the band's hard-hitting second album and Century Media debut Beneath The Surface kicks rusty rockers out of their wheelchairs with its remarkably fresh take on early Helloween and Queensryche - perfect metal pleasure guaranteed!

Thoroughly hailed in the national and international metal scene for its 2011 debut Man Or Machine (Sonic Attack Records) and much celebrated shows at German cult festivals Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Rock Hard festival as well as France's finest Hellfest, Alpha Tiger quickly became one of Germany's hottest heavy metal newcomers (e.g. #7 in the newcomer category of Rock Hard's reader's poll 2011).

At The Lake

At The Lake's music combines elements of folk, Celtic and classical music with heavy metal sound. The extensive use of the violins played by Milena (leader and composer) gives the music its unique character. The band re-recorded their demo together with two new songs. The classically trained singer Gosia together with the keyboard player Ania (ex-Sacriversum) gave the music a new bombastic and symphonic sound.

During the next one and a half year At The Lake played in various cities in Poland, visiting clubs, festivals and sharing the stage with many polish and foreign bands, including, among others, Sabaton, Tyr, Closterkeller.

Evil Twin

Band was brought to its genesis in 1999 a.d. by myself, Marcin Maksymowicz (Max). The music, which is created by Evil Twin is akin to such metal bands playing within the genres of black, death or even doom. It is difficult to speak of the actual establishment of a goal, to which the founding of this project could be put down to...

The first tracks came to light even before the year of 1999. To be honest, at first, the music which was created wasn't taken too seriously by me, the creator, although after a certain while my mind began to change the course on the direction the sounds were beginning to go. In this way, the first real recordings of Evil Twin came into existence. At the start, many tracks were left to the abyss of the forgotten until I decided upon a selection of the best, which soon became the first album - To Your God...
