Iron Man

Maryland doom legends Iron Man evolved from several different original and tribute projects in the mid-to-late 1980s. The band caught the attention of legendary German record label Hellhound, who released the first two Iron Man albums - Black Night in 1993, and The Passage in 1994. In 1999 the band released their third studio album, Generation Void through Brainticket Records.

Iron Man weathered numerous lineup changes (with guitarist Alfred Morris III being the only constant throughout the years) during the early 00's, then in 2004 Michael Lindenauer took on the role as their manager and helped Morris to revive the band. Ex-members of Maryland doom bands Wretched and Life Beyond (Louis Strachan on bass and Gus Basilika on drums) were recruited for the rhythm section, and after a long search Lindenauer secured vocalist Joe Donnelly of Sabbra Cadabra (a Black Sabbath tribute band). Basilika soon departed, to be replaced by drummer Brian "Dex" Dexter, and this lineup released the EP Submission in 2007.

Asthma

The band was formed in Daugavpils, Latvia in early 2009 by a lead guitarist Max "Mr. Volff" Popov after the disbanding his former project "Balaguri". Besides him, the other core members of the band were a singer Vadim "Pinguin" Mamonov and a drummer Arthur "Portwein" Sokolov. "Asthma" decided to choose death metal as its main musical direction.

In early summer they were joined by an inventive bass player Al Potapov (formerly of "Consumed"). However, Al Potapov's stay in the band was a short-lived one since he departed to. Shortly after that two other band members Max and Arthur followed him leaving the band on hiatus. The band was reunited a month later when Max and Arthur got back to Latvia. It also took two new members on board - rhythm guitarist Andrei and electronic music artist Vladimir Sklema turning "Asthma" into a quintet. Vladimir's function in the band was creating some original synthetic sound patterns and fills making the overall sound of the band more ominous and twisted. Apart from that another Vladimir's function was arranging so-called "zombie shows" during the live performances that were characterized by wearing some bizarre outfits and spectacular actions.

Internal Bleeding

After the breakup of his original band Autumn Reign, guitarist Chris Pervelis went on to found the first INTERNAL BLEEDING lineup in early 1991. That winter, a case of 300 blank tapes were "found" at a local university and provided the impetus to set up a 4-track recorder and record their first demo the infamous One Dollar Demo. It was a crude recording, but underneath all the noise and hiss lay the seeds of a new genre of death metal.

In the winter of 1992, the band released their now classic Invocation of Evil demo. This recording got them closer to their goal of creating crushing death metal with grooves and hooks that stayed with the listener long after the stop button was hit. Critics and fans responded, and Invocation of Evil was eventually released on Wild Rags Records selling more than 5000 copies the label's highest selling CD at the time. Relentless self-financed touring and promotion followed.
