Sheavy

Sheavy formed in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in 1993, and originally performed under the name Green Machine.

In 1994, the band discovered there was another band in the United States with the same name, so a decision was made to rename the band Sheavy.

The band's repertoire originally consisted of a sampling of Kyuss covers and an assortment of originals that would eventually make their way onto the Reproduction E.P., Slaves To Fashion, and ultimately Blue Sky Mind. A three-song 7" vinyl record was recorded in early 1995 at Jolly Roger Studios in St. John's.

Mütiilation

Mütiilation was formed in 1991 by Meyhna'ch, Dark Wizzard of Silence and a bassist by the name of David. They recorded some amounts of demos as a trio until 1994, when David left. This was due to Mütiilation joining The Black Legions and his choice to not follow their views. At this time Mütiilation released an EP to honor the circle titled Hail Satanas We Are The Black Legions.

Shortly after Dark Wizzard of Silence was replaced by Krissagrazabeth, who participated in the recordings up until Vampires of Black Imperial Blood. Once again it was due to disagreeing views. At his departure, Mørdrëd joined in to be the first Mütiilation bassist to be part of The Black Legions. This line-up would be featured in The Black Plague - First Chapter (And Maybe Last One).

Blood Revolt

There is extremity for the sake of it, bound within certain confines and boundaries. They might be the confines of the metal scene as it is or simply the confines and limits of having no imagination, foresight, understanding or temerity. Little in modern metal deals with genuine extremity, concerning itself more with fantasy than cruel cold reality.

Disregarding scene conventions or politics, in what seems like an odd mix on paper, makes complete sense when you take into account the bloody mindedness with which each musician has pursued their goals and the absolute conviction of their ideals.

Cruciamentum

Cruciamentum, meaning "torture" in Latin, seemed a suitably sinister banner for which to form the band beneath. The aim of Cruciamentum is to play dark, claustrophobic death metal influenced by bands such as Incantation, Demigod, Abhorrence, Rottrevore, Necros Christos, Immolation, and Morbid Angel.

Having existed since 2005, Cruciamentum finally solidified their line-up in late 2008 with original guitarist D.L. (ex-Imindain) taking over the recently vacated vocalist spot, joined by B.C. (Deceptor, ex-Dark Forest) on bass and D.B-H. (Grave Miasma, Indesinence, Adorior) on drums.

Crimson Wind

Crimson Wind was formed in Palermo in December 2008 when drummer Claudio Florio (Trinakrius, Holy Knights) and bassist Niki Zummo decide to create a band with strong influences in power metal. The founders of the band were then joined by Alessio Taormina and Emanuele "Izzy" Bonura. Their first release, The Wings of Salvation, was published in the the first few months of 2011 through IceWarrior Records for Europe and Rubicon Music for the Japanese market, where it received positive reviews from the general public. After a series of live performances in Italy and abroad, Crimson Wind prepared to record their second album, and having many ideas, the creative minds of Emanuele and Diego began writing the music and lyrics for the new album. Just as the band was about to write the vocals, they received sudden bad news: frontman Alessio Taormina announced he had to leave the band and move to London due to his work. The band spent the whole of 2012 in search of a new singer to replace Alessio.

Archivist

Archivist is a six piece ethereal metal project, which follows the unwitting survivor of a massive ecological disaster. The last human alive, yet in relative safety aboard the only remaining ark jettisoned from a dying Earth, she begins to record her memories of the world left in turmoil by humanity's shortsightedness and greed.

Archivist has no delusions of aspiring to a genre sound; from a purely musical angle, they love the use of blast beats as a texture, to create an ethereal wash. As a band, none of them have a particular connection with black metal, but it is true that this sound reverb heavy guitars, blast beat drums, and screamed vocals is synonymous with that genre. Musicians have always taken aspects of many genres to create new ideas. What Archivist do may not be in any way different from a host of other bands creating music from similar influences. That being said, blast beats and reverb heavy guitars will always be associated with black metal (and, by association, with certain political leanings). Archivist do in no way consider themselves a black metal band, but these instrumental patterns will always have associations with black metal, and therefore it is unfortunate but important to point out the glaringly obvious: Archivist is anti-fascist, LGBTQ ally, pro-feminist, non-religious, and animal friendly.

Light Bearer

Light Bearer formed in 2010, an all encompassing art/music/narrative project, based around a story written by their vocalist Alex, who drew influence from the writings of Philip Pullman's "His dark materials" trilogy, John Milton's Paradise Lost, and the Book of Genesis, an allegorical tale in which to forward atheist/anti theist and radical left wing/ free thought ideologies.

The band play a mixture of melodic post hardcore, progressive metal, post rock and ambient atmospheric drone, The songs are structured specifically to follow the narrative and therefore peak and trough in equal measure, mixing screamed desperate vocals with sung passages.

The story is split into four main parts, Lapsus, Silver Tongue, Magisterium and finally Lattermost Sword. The narrative begins with the metaphorical casting out of the protagonist Lucifer, an angel so loyal and in love with god that he could not submit when asked to bow before humanity, personified as Adam. For this act he is banished from the metaphysical heaven into the cold stigeon wastes below reality. Here he questions the Allfather - an entity who claimed the universe as his own. In doing so he realises his master has lied, and vows to reach out from his desolate prison and become his namesake - to pass on the torch of free will to all life in the multiple universes.

The story continues in Silver Tongue, Magisterium and Lattermost Sword in which the torch is borne by the metaphorical Eve - the mitochondrial ancestor of humanity, her rejection of the will of the false god and the attempted rebellion against Heaven, her role and the role of the prophesied second Eve. The establishment of the church and the eventual culmination and war against the patriarchal god.

Alongside the four releases are planned EPs and split records, beginning with Beyond the Infinite, The Assembly of God - an elaboration of the introduction to the first album. A second narrative runs through records not included in the four main parts, these chronicle the uprising of those opposed to the false god, recorded in the "Celestium Apocrypha". Those privy to the truth, of the natural formation of the universe and the roles assumed by the characters in the story are charged with forwarding the original word of Lucifer, they are in turn, light bearers. This begins with the "Book of Watchers".
