Sebastian Bach

The onetime frontman for hair metal hitmakers Skid Row, singer Sebastian Bach was born Sebastian Bierk in the Bahamas on April 3, 1968. A veteran of short-lived, little-known bands including Herrenvolk, Madame X, V05, and Kid Wikkid, he was living in Canada when in 1987 he received a demo tape from an unknown New Jersey band in search of a lead singer; the group was Skid Row, formed a year earlier by ex-Bon Jovi guitarist Dave "The Snake" Sabo. Signing to Atlantic, Skid Row issued its self-titled debut album in 1989; an opening slot on Bon Jovi's U.S. tour, combined with heavy MTV airplay of the video "Youth Gone Wild," launched the band to stardom, and the singles "18 and Life" and "I Remember You" both reached the Top Ten. Bach, with his wildman persona and photogenic looks, quickly emerged as the focus of fan and media attention, a situation compounded in late 1989 when, during a concert in Springfield, MA, he was hit in the head by a bottle thrown on-stage; the singer proceeded to hurl the bottle back into the crowd, where it hit the face of an innocent girl, before physically assaulting another audience member as well. Sentenced to three years probation, Bach then appeared on MTV wearing an offensive T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan "AIDS Kills Fags Dead," prompting outcries from the gay community. Despite the bad publicity, Skid Row's second album, 1991's Slave to the Grind, debuted at number one, although it quickly fell off the charts; in the wake of 1995's disappointing Subhuman Race, Bach was dismissed from the group, briefly forming a band with ex-Breeder Kelley Deal before going solo in 1997. The album Bring 'Em Bach Alive arrived two years later, followed by a live DVD (Forever Wild) in 2004 and Angel Down in 2007. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Thormesis

Thormesis are probably one of the most promising young Pagan / Viking Metal bands from the German underground. With their second album "Past ashes" (Spring 2010), this crazy horde presents dynamically and independently. Anthemic, rousing clear vocals combined with the fury and rage of a trapped wolf. A rough diamond in a very crowded music scene!
This lineup began to root out the end of 2007 with the recordings of the debut album "Go and fight."

The Silberling was in the box and met the expectations of the band. To those present, however Thormesis played in January 2008, the release concert on the Pagana I in the tithe barn of stone box. Young bands like Thy Wicked, shadow realm, Thy Thormesis One and even gave himself the honor.

Effloresce

With the release of their Shades Of Fate EP in late 2009, the five-piece from Nuremberg/Germany laid the foundation to establish a signature sound, boasting heavy guitars, atmospheric mellotron sounds and complex rhythmic patterns.

Singer Nicki's stunning range comprises crystal clear vocals as well as raw death metal growls; however, she also contributes flute sounds to the songs' more mellow moments. Effloresce's songs express emotions and mirror the band's technical capabilities without sacrificing musicality or listenability.

Elvenpath

Elvenpath stepped into the picture in early 2002, hailing from Frankfurt (Central Germany) with the intention of stretching an overcrowded Metal scene yet a little more. Contrary to the main part of that scene they'd bring something different: heart, soul, passion and damn good songs.

Despite everything in their way Elvenpath has persevered since then, releasing four CD's, playing almost 100 shows, among others sharing the stage with bands like Sabaton, Custard, Majesty, Wizard, Cage and Grailknights, touring Europe twice as support to Skyclad, playing festivals like Dong Open Air (Germany), Metallergrillen (Germany), Taunus Metal Festival (Germany), Up The Hammers (Greece), Rising Fest (France) and gaining themselves a name especially with their very powerful and energetic live show.

Skumring

Skumring was created in the early summer months of 2004, when Cecilie and Vàli were discussing to form a band.Already in the planning stages it became clear that the music we wanted to make would have to be heavy and melodic, thus the choise fell on doom metal.

We immediatly recruited Ole to play rhythm guitar, and KK joined later to handle the bass duties. We quickly started to rehearse self composed material, and after a few weeks without a drummer, Knut replied to our ad on the internet and the line-up was complete.

Devil

One day as late as in 2009, the worlds youngest old band was formed. Over a few beers, comrades and festival promoters of Metal Merchants Festival Ronny Østli and Stian Fossum decided to contribute to the heavy metal scene after watching a tremendous Pentagram concert. This was the very birth of what should be known as DEVIL. The gathering of the apocalyptic raiders started by recruiting Ronny's Vesen bandmate Thomas Ljosåk on bass guitar and Stian's Rikets Crust bandmate Kai Wanderås on guitar. Missing only a singer, they decided to ask long time friend and fellow metal head Joakim Trangsrud, who practically was both lured and forced to join the first rehearsal. DEVIL was ready to roll.

Faustcoven

"Faustcoven is a one man project that tries to capture some of the magic of the Old School Black Metal of the great bands Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Tormentor and Darkthrone. Combine this with old and doomy metal like Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Candlemass, and you have a rough idea of what I try to achieve. Ugly and sometimes catchy riffs in a rocking way!"

Persian Risk

Persian Risk is a Cardiff, Wales-based heavy metal band formed in 1979, originally consisting of guitarists Phil Campbell and Dave Bell, vocalist Jon Deverill, bassist Nick Hughes, and drummer Razz.

The band made further headway by contributing the aforementioned Calling For You' to the "Heavy Metal Heroes Vol.2 compilation (Heavy Metal Records, 1982) and a new cut, 50.000 Stallions, to the 60 Minutes Plus cassette compilation (Neat Records, 1982), also issued on vinyl as All Hell Let Loose by Neat in conjunction with Italy's Base Records label in 1983.
