Black Autumn

Black Autumn is a German Black-Doom Metal act from the foggy banks of Hemer, located at the border to the Sauerland.
Founded around 1995 to celebrate Black Metal in the vein of Emperor, Satyricon and Ulver the project started out as a two-member-band. Due to lack of proper equipment first recordings were delayed until 1998 when Michael Krall and TH showed off with their first recordings.

"The Seven Gates Of Illusionary Vision" and "A Distant Light Before Dawn" (that later also appeared on the "Cult Of Nihil" demo and album) clearly showed that Black Autumn were not in for it for fun but had serious intentions in creating something utterly dark. After these first signs of life TH decided to leave the project due to musical differences.

Dies Ater

Dies Ater is a German Black Metal Band preferring an atmospheric and melodic style to express their emotions and feelings.
Dies Ater was founded by Nuntius Tristis (vocals & guitar) in autumn '94. It did not take much time to realize that it was very difficult to express and create all the music by his own. So he was looking for some companions. After a long and very careful search he found Impurus (drums), who was playing in a small Death-Band before, and Obskur (bass).

But the line-up was not complete. Another guitar-player was still missing. Torgrim (lead guitar) filled this gap. So the band could start. The first thing to do was to find a name. Dies Ater seemed to fit in the best way. It stands for "a black/fatal day".

Lita Ford

One of two solo stars to spring from the ashes of the '70s all-girl hard rock band The Runaways, Lita Ford has long been a more frustrating, contradictory proposition for critics than former colleague Joan Jett. Ford is subtly feminist in her musical approach, displaying guitar heroics on the level of any male metal hero; the mere fact of her existence in the otherwise testosterone-driven heavy metal genre has made her a hero to some, but her persona has often been criticized as calculated to appeal to male adolescent sexual fantasies, simply embodying the standard wild-girl stereotypes of many male metal artists' lyrics.

Midnight Priest

The legend of Midnight Priest was born in 2008 on the streets, under the sign of Heavy Metal and Punk, a chaingang of outlaws, criminals and infamous bastards, risen from the grave, and ready to raise hell. They started to rock out at the local Ghost Galeon "Corsários" and made their way ever since through the desert plains of Iberia, holding the axe in one hand, chains on the other and fire in their eyes.

As time went by, women in leather came by the thousands just to hold the hand of the Priest at midnight. They asked him to join the infamous Midnight Sisters Cult while singing his obscure salms in one voice. As the baptisms took place, the legend of the Midnight Priest was born… Chains, Leather, and Lace, burning every stage, spreading terror in the night…!"

Häive

2002 The idea of Häive starts to take form. The first notes for a primitive pagan metal tune is composed solely with a piano. This tune is to become the song "Yössä vainajien".

2003 "Yössä vainajien" demo is recorded spontaneously in early summer using only a double-deck recorder. The demo gets self-released in autumn without a proper distribution and with a pressing of only 30 copies.

2004 The first demo still gets the attention of a german UG-label N:C:U, which offers to release the second demo on tape. "Vaiti" is composed and recorded again very spontaneously in late summers' rains. The material differs from the previous demo quite noticetably, bringing acoustic guitar to a leading role. The release gets delayed 'till next year because of the label.

Faanefjell

Brainchild (2009) of Norwegian folk and metal guitarist Kim "Grimtroll" Arly Karlsen and Danish black metal vocalist Benjamin "Syrtroll" Isar Jørgensen, Faanefjell is the musical embodiment of an era where the two countries were one kingdom. The lyrical universe of the band is set in late 19th century, where the human civilization had developed electrical lightning and dynamite to once and for all conquer the Scandinavian forests and mountains and drive the Trolls further into oblivion.

Gernotshagen

The band Gernotshagen has now been integrated into the Pagan scene for 10 years and by now plays shows all over Europe. The band was founded in 1999 by B. Techet (guit), D. Möller (voc), S.Beck (bass) and M. Pomplun (leadguit) in consequence of two other band's break -up. In 2000 S. Jung (keys) and T.Völker (drums) completed the quartet. This formation has not changed til now and according to the band should not change at all.

Gernotshagen cannot be assigned to typical Pagan Metal. According to their own statement it is a musically-experimental mix of different Metal genres with classic and folk influences combined with a lot of melody. An atmospheric composition though the vocals, which complete the overall picture with overwhelming clean passages and aggressive growls. It is simply impossible to compare Gernotshagen with other bands since they create their own, totally unique musical style.
