Son Of A Bitch

In 1994, Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson, founding members of Saxon, reunited. They began under the name 'Son of a Bitch' (which had been Saxon's own name originally, before they became well known) but were often billed as Saxon on tours by promoters, though the band often didn't discourage this. In 2000 after a period of inactivity they decided to officially rename themselves Oliver/Dawson Saxon. The band has been known by this name ever since, and despite recording other material from 1996 onwards have always relied primarily on Saxon songs during live sets. Despite Byford attempting a legal injunction against the use of the name "Saxon" in the band's title to falsely promote themselves, as founding members of the original band courts deemed use of the name legally acceptable.

Danse Macabre

Danse Macabre, a musical journey through darkness, was born when the Belgian Gunther Theys (Ancient Rites) met the Greeks Sotiris (Septic Flesh) and George Zaharopoulos (ex-Rotting Christ) in Athens. In 1995 two songs for a 7' EP were recorded, but soon after that their label went down and the recordings were not released. The project threatened to end even before it had really even started. Gunther kept the idea and the concept still on his mind and in 1997 he luckily found musicians who shared his artistic views.The Finnish Jan 'Örkki' Yrlund (ex-Lacrimosa, ex-Two Witches, ex-Prestige, SinMasters, Ancient Rites{/band]) and the Belgian Raf Corten (ex-Ancient Rites) wanted to continue the Story.

Elizium

Elizium are a heavy metal band formed in 1991 in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. Heavily influenced by the many original metal bands that entered the scene in the 80's and 90's the group of friends decided to start a band devoted to making emotion-laden music.

Along with bands like Lake of Tears, Tiamat and Paradise Lost, Elizium is credited with having it's own distinctive sound, based on clean vocals, heavy guitars and many melodic elements. Their first official album Angel of Mistrust was received as an ode and milestone in the already mature Gothic metal scene. However, with the release of their second album, Relief by the Sun, the sound matured in a different direction, fitting the Dark Rock subgenre.

Funeral Whore

In late 2006, Roy (Guitar/vocals), Olle (Drums) and Kellie (Guitar) created Funeral Whore with the intention to make death metal, the traditional way. Old school death metal, the way it supposed to be. Funeral Whore at that time, was in search for a bass player. After a short time, Olle left the band, and concentrated himself on his other successful street punk band, Discharger.

Roy and Kellie moved on together and found a new drummer in early 2007. Shortly afterwards, Tim (Bass) joined the band and the formation was complete. But sadly, the drummer, Jonathan was unable to rehearsal constantly. This meant, a very slow progress in writing songs. In mid 2009, after recording the first demo, Jonathan was replaced by Sven.

Encorion

From the misty islands and riverbanks of the southern Netherlands, Encorion, a five headed pagan metal horde has awakened from the ashes of long forgotten bands and projects. Sprung from the mind of Danny de Graaf (founder/guitarist) out of a passion for metal, classical and folk music and a romantic notion of European culture in a time before the rise of Christianity. Soon joined by his brothers in arms and cousins Michael Dubbelt (bass/clean vocals) and Raymond Dubbelt (vocals) in the winter of 2007, Encorion gained a physical form. With almost an album's worth of demo recordings new blood was soon found in Jark Zilverentant (drums) and Tessa Freeke (violin, string and wind instruments) and the first battles were fought in venues across the Netherlands and Belgium.

The Mist And The Morning Dew

The Mist And The Morning Dew were gathered up in 2000 and consist of members from bands such as The Seventh Planet (Mikael Karlbom and Henri Tuomi), Shape Of Despair (Jarno Salomaa), Finntroll (Sami Uusitalo), Korpiklaani (Jaakko Lemmetty), Nest (Alpo Tolonen), Shaman (Jaakko Lemmetty) and formerly, Unholy (Veera Muhli).

The band's style is a mix of folk and depressive metal; altogether the use of monotonous and dream-like melodies created by the encompassing female vocals of Veera Muhli along with some violin, this whole world The Mist And The Morning Dew offers has a very relaxed and trance-like approach to it.
