Tyrant's Kall

In the history of fantastic literature, there was only seldom an author as great and inspiring as Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937). His stories are of a mysterious kind and, though they cover a wide range of subjects, they all are engulfed by one overall epic and intrigueing atmosphere.

Also today the Lovecraft-mythos still fascinates people. In Flanders it even summoned a real-life cult, for in honour of H.P. Lovecraft, the band Tyrant's Kall was formed. The musicians of this collective try to grasp a little of the aforementioned wretched and occult atmosphere, and subsequently channel it through their heavy and enthralling music.

The Trinakrius project, a Power Heavy Doom band, was formed in Palermo in 1995. In 1996 we recorded our first output, a demo tape entitled "Intrinakrius". It received quite good reviews in several heavy metal magazines. Notwithstanding the reasonable success and the numerous performances in various pubs of the city and its province, we split up because of various reasons at the end of the same year. During the six years we all had our own musical experiences in some other bands (e.g. Holy Knights,Acacia, Synthesys, Black Twilight, and others).

Gonin-ish

The roots of Gonin-ish reach back as far as the year 1995, when keyboarder Masashi Momota was a member of WWW, a Japanese progressive metal band, which disbanded the next year after only one public performance. Masashi met up with guitarist Akiko "Anoji" Matsuoka, who played in the all-female thrash troupe Oblivion and brought a taste for death metal into this union, which first resulted in a cover-band paying tribute to Swedish prog-legends Anekdoten, where Akiko took over the duties as bassist and singer. Soon their artistic vision went beyond playing cover versions, and in 1997 the project evolved into a band with new members joining. That same summer, the appellation Gonin-ish was found. Already at this early stage, a specific way of working developed with Momota taking the lead as main composer and Matsuoka deciding to express an ideal of chaos by writing all lyrics in her native tongue of Japanese.

Taka Minamino

Taka Minamino was born in Osaka, Japan in 1984. Having initially taken up the violin at the young age of 4, his growing interest and diversity lead him to switch to guitar at 14, a decision which would offer him a creative outlet that would produce two solo projects, a guest appearance on a keyboard virtuoso's CD, numerous interviews/reviews, and a spot in the Guitar Hero Competition where he played his first composition in front of all star judges.

Soon after the formation of the band, another long time friend Kari Väkiparta became the group's vocalist.

The band rehearsed songs as a three piece before they found bass player Mikko Hellström who joined the band in early 2008. In 2010 the band came in contact with saxophone player Jussi Huurre who proved to be a very fitting add for the band by mixing in different influences and spicing up their live performance.

Paganize

Paganize started as a cover band in 2001 and later on we began to make our own songs. I sent a demo to Candlelight and they signed us and we began working on our first album. All the members in this band comes from different background but all had the same feeling of god old heavy metal. I have always liked that kind of music, so it was fun to play some "regular" music for once. We are now in the process of getting the songs ready for the next album, so I hope we are ready to record in the beginning of next year.
