Aeon Of Horus

Aeon of Horus are a progressive death metal band from Canberra, Australia. The four piece combines technicality and rhythmic complexity with a sweeping dynamic, often venturing into symphonic passages and subtle melodic interludes.

Aeon of Horus formed in 2006 and began playing live in early 2007. By late 2007 they had recorded and released a self-titled EP. The band continued to write and in early 2008 they began recording their first full length album, 'The Embodiment of Darkness and Light'. While their EP hinted at the intensity and superior musicianship of Aeon of Horus, this full length release showcases the culmination of their efforts in an epic sensory experience. Crushing riffs and technicality combine with epic and dark movements to form a unique brand of progressive metal.

Mantar

Two piece monster from northern germany. debut: "death by burning" recorded in early 2013. no fancy art production -> just raw display of power. the half german / half turkish band exists for not even a year.
true battle hymns and sinister sounds of darkness. no gimmicks, no image, pure rage. bone crushin' like the berzerker's path. in spite of the fact no bassguitar has been used on the record, MANTAR manages to sound even meaner and heavier than a five piece band due to superior skills in general.

Vangough

Oklahoma City based powerhouse VANGOUGH may be named after a post-impressionistic artist, come from a conservative bastion of the U.S. and draw inspiration from a variety of exotic musical styles; yet driven by the explosive, cutting edge vision of guitarist and lead vocalist Clay Withrow, the band's incisive and infectious songs and intense energy requires adjectives far beyond words that describe mainstream artists. So here's an opening attempt: committed to drawing listeners into their melodies before totally upending the tea table, they spit fiery madness by drenching your ears with a purple sunrise of melodic cocaine.

Anthem

Anthem was founded in Tokyo during 1981 as a quartet, composed of singer Toshihito Maeda, guitarist Akifumi Koyanagi, bass player Naoto Shibata (also known as "Ski") and drummer Takamasa Ohuchi. Koyanagi left in late 1983 to be replaced by Hiroya Fukada. In December 1984, vocalist Toshihito Maeda also left and Anthem drafted Eizo Sakamoto for their debut eponymous album, issued in July 1985 by Nexus and licensed to Europe via Roadrunner Records.

Their first studio release featured classic songs like "Wild Anthem" and "Warning Action". The next release, Tightrope showcased a more catchy, melodic sound with an improved vocal performance by Sakamoto. Bound to Break was to be the last album featuring Eizo Sakamoto for nearly two decades, and was by far his most impressive vocal performance to that point. The album was full of classics ("Empty Eyes", "Bound to Break", "Soldiers") and introduced the band's long-time world-famous producer, Chris Tsangarides (perhaps best known for producing Judas Priest's classic 1990 album, Painkiller). With the departure of Sakamoto in 1988, Shibata recruited Yukio Morikawa to the band's vocal position. With Morikawa came the album Gypsy Ways, considered the band's most popular album. Morikawa's voice made the band a great success at that time and he was similar in style, vocal range and ability to Graham Bonnet. In 1989, the album Hunting Time was released and the song "The Juggler" was used as a PV. In the beginning of 90s, Anthem dealt with another departure, this time Hiroya Fukuda (guitar) left and was replaced by Hideaki 'Shadow Walker' Nakama which recorded the album No Smoke Without Fire, this time without the band's staple producer / engineer Chris Tsangarides. Hideaki Nakama left the band after recording just that one album and the search for a new guitarist began.

Sadness

MEMORIES UNDER SADNESS BY STEFF TERRY

My band SADNESS, is maybe a part of my story and my convictions about life and about metal. In reality, I was a true fan of bands like: Celtic Frost, Venom, Bathory, Christian Death and The Cure and also the heavy metal bands like Wasp, Motley Crue, Black Sabbat and Bon Jovi, yes Bon Jovi too.
Why??
I believe that all these bands are very sentimental for the hate, the love and I like the bands with a true reality about their music, a true attitude and a very good mentality. I will respect the public with SADNESS like these bands because I believe in the fans that help me over this very long way between labels. Who chose us between all bands who always think about the money, and who release a news cd each 6 months with very stupid songs.
