Nightbringer

NIGHTBRINGER was created as a conduit for our contemplations on the mysteries of death as it is understood in the tradition of the art magical.

Formed in the year 1999 by Nox Corvus (guitars, percussions, bass and vocals) and Naas Alcameth (guitar, bass, lyrics and vocals), the band from Colorado in the United States recorded a two song rehearsal demo, which would be later self-released in 2001 on the CD-R compilation "Horde of Darkenwood" and featured again on the NIGHTBRINGER release "Emanation" put out by Starlight Templer Society in 2010.

Savn

Norwegian goth metal legends The Sins Of Thy Beloved have been dormant since 2000 - following the release of their second album Perpetual Desolation - and after years of a rumored reunion, Stig Johansen and Anders Thue have instead risen from the ashes with a new band, Savn , and a new vision.

The seeds for Savn (translated: Deprivation) officially took root when multi-instrumentalist Stig contacted Midnattsol vocalist and long-time friend Carmen Elise Espenæs about singing one song for the planned Savn album. Carmen agreed, and Stig and Anders (keyboards) were so pleased with the final result they invited her to sing on the entire record. With Midnattsol rendered inactive for the time being due to personal commitments within the band, and her new role as a singer, as well as a mother of an adorable daughter, the Norwegian powerhouse found herself with enough time and refueled with energy to take part in this new musical journey.

Bands
Eudaimony

Eudaimony was formed in July 2007 by Matthias Jell (vocals/ex-Dark Fortress) and Marcus E. Norman (guitars/Naglfar, Bewitched, Havayoth, Ancient Wisdom). The idea behind Eudaimony was from the beginning on to create music, which reflects the band members' view on every-day life in this society: sick, disturbing and negative.

In September 2007 Jell and Norman met in Umeå, Sweden, composing the first material for Eudaimony . Short time later Jörg Heemann (drums/Secrets of the Moon, Ex-The Vision Bleak) joined the band and in the middle of 2008 the line-up got completed by Peter Honsalek (viola & piano/Ex-Nachtreich).

Bands
Schammasch

Located in Basel, Switzerland, Schammasch was formed in 2009.'Schammasch' being Šamaš, the sun god from Akkadian / Babylonian mythology.)

With little attention to the question of genre from their inception, the band regarded their actual body of work as what is most artistically significant; although their roots can be found in forward-thinking black metal whilst balancing a razor sharp hybrid of dark atmospherics, doom and Hermetic mysticism.

After a year of carefully crafting their art, Schammasch released their first album Sic Lvceat Lvx on an underground Swiss Black Metal label and unveiled their live show alongside international extreme metal acts like Jex Thoth, Temple of Baal, Vorkreist, Evoken and Forgotten Tomb. Their ambitious debut garnered considerable praise from many corners of the extreme music world, in print and online. Legacy magazine in Germany quoted : „On a work of art like this one, there's only one recommendation: goeth and buyeth and you shall not regret it! 14/15"

Bands
Faethom

The grim story of Blackened Heavy Metal band Faethom begins in early 2009 in hellish Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Co-founders David Diacrono and Mariela Muerte, both originally from the ghoul-infested town of Cochabamba, Bolivia, joined their dark talents to mix that which they most worship: Horror and Metal. Initially, and for a very short period, the band was known as Fathom, but David and Mariela decided to change the name to FAETHOM (old English spelling of the word) to stand out from other bands with the same name. Terror tales written by Mariela became songs and throughout most of 2009 the band focused on recording their first EP. Also during 2009, they added to the lineup Argentinian bassist, Federico Vidal, and drummer, Thomas Wittig, for the live experience and they began playing shows locally.

Walk Through Fire

Walk Through Fire was founded in 2008 by Ufuk on guitar/bass, David (Monachus) on drums and Johan (Abandon) on vocals. Prior to the recording of their first demo Walk Through Fire Johan left the band and the demo was finalized without any vocals as the remaining two members thought the music stood well on its own.

The self-titled demo gave the band a quick boost in reputation in Sweden after getting good reviews in Swedish newspapers and music magazines and when it was time to hit the road two new members joined; Andreas on bass and Oscar (Hemskt Näringsliv) on guitar.

Bands
Dopethrone

From Montreal, a band that came into existence on one of these nights of improv, one of those nights of "constructive substance abuse"… One of these nights were you know you had a great time/but you can't remember much of it… We just kept babbling about the fact that there's not enough heavy southern soundin' stoner shit up here in MTL, and then realized that instead of talking about it, we could JUST DO IT… And make it happen. At first, it was all about living the moment, a jam band…
Our major influences are Black Sabbath (of course), Electric Wizard (oh, really?), Iron Monkey, Weedeater, Bongzilla, Sleep, Brainoil and some ol' time blues...

Inspell

The idea for Inspell was born in March 2003. There was recorded a song for untitled project without lyrical ideological definition. Heard by few friends it was shared an idea, that the music sounds like written for... fairy-tales. This like was taken the decision - the band's conception to be built on the base of retold children tales. For an author was chosen Hans Christian Andersen, and a friend of the band takes the lyrical part - to work tha tales in the shape of poetry. They are desperately seeking name, and in the great number of offers it is chosen the name Inspell. For three months is recorded the whole material for the debut album - "Fairy-Tales: Chapter One" includes nine author composiotionsand a cover of Styx - "Castlewalls". The album is released in August the same year by Little Norway Productions. It receives good ratings from zines, fans and different kinds of medias. There was received an invitation for a first concert, as an irony of the fate it is not in Bulgaria. There come promo concerts with Embrace By Dark, participation in Winter Storms, concerts in 2004 on a tattoo music festival in Varna and a live show in Plovdiv... Meanwhile works over its second album with working title "The Egregore - Arcadian Tales". It includes again 9 author compositions, united in three cycles, and for a first time it's stressed on the history of the Tampliers and the secret lodges. The lyrics are written by Nikolai Stefanov - the mastermind of Mrakobes. The band has signed stromspell records USA and their second album has being released on 31 of may in 2006.

Bands
Wormphlegm

One of the most elusive Doom-metal bands around to this day. The music is best described as "Torture doom", a name that covers their music perfectly. Ultra slow, minimalistic music with tortured screams and deep growls. Wormphlegm sound exactly what hell would sound like. The Pacing is always slow but there is some fast double bass drumming to be heard occasionally as well. Much can be said about this band, but the only thing that truly matters is that you need to try and find their demo if it's the last thing you do! One of the most tortured sounding bands around at this time.

Atomikylä

Atomikylä is a four piece band from Finland consisting of J. Vanhanen (guitar/vocals), T Hietamäki (bass) from Oranssi Pazuzu and J.Rämänen (drums) and V. Ajomo (guitar/vocals) from Dark Buddha Rising

There is a certain force, a kind of mental gravity, that pulls certain people towards the same psychic space and state of mind. Once both Dark Buddha Rising and Oranssi Pazuzu were dragged by this force the inevitable
finally occurred. Atomikylä was born. Still caught in the vortex of this force they are searching for a way out. Knowing the only way towards freedom is to let it all go through crooked riff spirals and wasted feedback worship, Erkale, their debut album, is a tribute to the lit moments of freedom in Wastement, the asylum for this view on life. Atomikylä sounds like offspring of Buddha and Pazuzu from a parallel universe, utilizing the same energies and powers as the motherbands, yet sounding very original. Through the space and psych, heavy and light, one comes up with only one question: Who goes there?
