Vaee Solis

Vaee Solis is a band that fits Morrigan's martial howling invoking the liberation and illumination of the eternal night, represented in Scandinavian traditions by Ragnarok. Its Sun is the polar Black Sun that shines bright like a diamond on Lucifer's forehead. Sophia's voice is, therefore, a hoarse and inflamed appeal to all human beings, slaves of the heavy forgetful slumber to which they have been condemned to by industrial society, to rise like Titans to their nocturnal awakening. Lamia's apotropaic shriek, lined by melancholic yet intensely melodic bards provided in the shadows with long and phallic guitars, takes away all fear of the inertia of merely being human. Then, ancient and atavic memories rise again, stealthily like wolves, coming from the visceral core of ourselves, inflaming our blood and hardening our muscles. Only then the awakening comes and in the eternal night we remember that we indeed are Gods.

Luciferian Light Orchestra

Luciferian Light Orchestra is a new band wrapped in a vintage spirit. The band is performing songs that Christofer Johnsson has written over the years but thought were too retro sounding for Therion. Christofer always had a big passion for the 70's music. Luciferian Light Orchestra sounds like a 70's version of Therion, mainly inspired by the 70's occult vibes and themes.

Fyrnask

Arisen from the womb of the earth, Fyrnask is creating images of times and places long forgotten and which origins are only indirectly accessible for mankind.

The dead corpses of our ancestors and the artefacts they have crafted, tell us forgotten stories that are lying in the deep gloomy waters of northern europe. Inspired by these stories, old rituals, pangermanic-spiritism, decay, bloom and nature itself the first demo Fjǫrvar Ok Benjar was born in October 2010. Düsterwald distributed this demo and it got a splendid resonance.

Cat O' Nine Tails

Cat O' Nine Tails - the first Christian pirate metal band - rises from the coasts of Finland.

Janne Heiskanen (vocals) and Lauri Tuomenoksa (drums) joined the band and the quartet started demoing the songs for the future release.

The recordings for the epic debut album Under Captain's Flag began in the late summer of 2013 at Kiipu Studios under Antti Niskala's protection. Last notes and soundscapes were added in early 2015.

Throes

After having originally formed as a full band in 2011, the group were placed in a difficult situation when D.G was arrested for involvement in the UK riots. After he was sentenced to a term of house arrest the decision was collectively made that the band would come to a halt.

However, in the summer of 2013 the initiative was taken by A.C to begin demoing new material at Darksound Studios (Ethereal, Lluvia, Sheol). These demos were exchanged via email and it quickly became apparent that the new music fit in perfectly with what had begun some years before and although it had been a long time in the coming; both members knew that this was the time to complete what they had begun.

Demon

Just as the long hot summer of 1976 had given birth to Punk, the long, cold winter of 1979 spawned the now legendary, New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM), a movement of such magnitude that it is still being talked about more than twenty years later. Hard rocking, fast, loud, aggressive, NWOBHM captured the imagination of those disillusioned with disco, put-off by punk and nonplussed by the emerging New-Romantics. It also brought forth: Demon.

Formed during the first wave of NWOBHM by lyricist/vocalist Dave Hill and guitarist Mal Spooner, with Paul Riley on bass, Clive Cook on guitar and John Wright on drums, the Midlands quintet hooked up with Clay Records supremo, Mike Stone, in 1980, to release their first single, 'Liar'. Issued on blood-red vinyl, in a limited edition run of just 5000 copies, Liar marked the beginning of an incredible story spanning two decades - and counting.

Native Construct

Self Spiller

Self Spiller is led by Agalloch bassist Jason Walton who hand-picked fourteen people to make their mark on this monster of a record. All contributing musicians composed and overdubbed their individual parts from across the world - Portland, OR to Tokyo to Oslo to Canada. Much of the music was composed without the musicians hearing the entire piece or knowing what other members were adding. Chance played a fundamental role in the stitching together of Worms In The Keys. In the end, Walton sifted through dozens of hours of recordings, layered hundreds of tracks, and edited countless performances spanning six years finally resulting in Self Spiller's debut album.
