Akhenaten

Although Akhenaten is based out of the rocky mountains of Colorado, the sounds are focused on a heavy blend of blackened death metal with the many exotic instruments from the ancient middle east.

Crystalmoors

In Winter of 1995, Erun dagoth decided to create a side project parallel to his main band Eldereon (ex-Moonshine), although with a more decadent and medieval style. The result was CrystalMoors, nevertheless there was not a name to define it yet.

After joining some members and having composed some songs in 1997 he records his first non official demo-tape: "El Llanto del Bosque" (The Cry of the Forest) which was not edited nor distributed. It contained a raging Black Metal oriented to the epic atmospheres of the Nordic sound. After this first step he records two tapes more with the same form and the same result. The goal was to create a basis for the first official demo which was finally released at the beginning of 1999.

Oathbreaker

To outsiders, Belgium is a country rich in cultural diversity and history. However to its residents it is also a country of crime, corruption, and political incompetence. For the Ghent based Oathbreaker, the festering blood that surfaces from these social cracks and fissures burns as fuel for their creative engine.

After their formation in early 2008, Oathbreaker released a debut 7" EP on the British label Thirty Days Of Night Records. The release was well-received by many worldwide and propelled the band to tour Europe. There they shared stages with Entombed, Amenra (whom they share a member with), Blacklisted, Trap Them, and more.

The Elysian Fields

Shrouded in an aura suitable for a band hailing from the mythical and legendary Greece, THE ELYSIAN FIELDS dwell on the misanthropic and the heroic. Tales of ancient struggles and bitter conflicts dominate their sound, which relies heavily on extreme tempo changes, ripping melodic guitars and ancient orchestral touches with the use of violins and piano. THE ELYSIAN FIELDS certainly sound like no-one else, alternating between hate-filled blast passages and mood driven reflective moments.

The determination of the band can be judged by their rise from the obscure Greek metal scene, firstly with the obligatory demos and then with the release of their debut album, "Adelain" through a small local label in 1995 their musical abilities became evident through a compact combination of melody and aggressiveness.
