Dead Cross

Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled, turmoil-intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder.

Consisting of Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, Michael Crain, and Mike Patton, the impressive, expansive, and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music... but a resume isn't necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on its own, speaks volumes with its multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs, and brutal rhythms.

Zornheym

Zornheym is a new symphonic extreme metal band from Stockholm. The band may be new, however the members are weathered veterans in the scene with tons of experience.

They have fused together great story telling with a cinematic approach spiced up with urban legends and actual authentic horror stories. Finding inspiration from bands like Dissection, Dimmu Borgir, King Diamond, Marduk and Satyricon, the music is guitar based and backed up by a real string orchestra and 150 voices strong choir! You're gonna be in for a hell of ride when entering their domain!

Bands
Immortal Sÿnn

Immortal Sÿnn is a 5-piece heavy metal band from Denver, CO. In a sea of modern cookie-cutter acts, the band tries to retain a more familiar and old school sound that propelled bands of the 70s and 80s to superstardom. Taking their cue from thrashers such as Exodus and Megadeth, as well as NWOBHM legends like Judas Priest and Motörhead, Immortal Sÿnn creates a perfect mixture of speed and grit, but can also knock you out with mid-tempo riffs from hell.

Immortal Sÿnn was formed in 2004 by guitarist and sole original member Tony Z. After constant line-up changes and poorly-recorded demos, Tony decided to put the band on hiatus after joining Denver rock band, Phoenix Rising (later called Wild Angelz and, finally, Devoutcast), in May 2007.

Ringworm

Ringworm, the reigning kings of destructive hardcore metal, have brought forth yet another testament to their sheer brutality: The Venomous Grand Design. Ever since their emergence from the Cleveland metal scene, Ringworm has garnered the immediate attention of hardcore metal fans, leading them to spots on tour with bands such as Blood For Blood, Hatebreed, and Terror. Ringworm displays an awesome ferocity in the power of their instruments, and vocalist the Human Furnace uses his voice as a tool to extract the diabolical nature of anyone who hears it.

Dyscarnate

The UK's Dyscarnate play their own unique breed of intense, blistering death metal. After devastating venues across Europe, they have become a force to be reckoned with on the frontline of the international death metal scene.

Following the release of the debut EP Annihilate to Liberate in 2008, Dyscarnate were met with overwhelming feedback from national magazines, record labels and fans alike. This resulted in a multi-album deal with the UK's Siege Of Amida Records for Europe and Candlelight Records for the US/Canada. Signing with a label that has become notorious for championing the world's premier extreme artists, (including Annotations Of An Autopsy, Viatrophy and Ingested) provided the band with the perfect platform to release their debut full-length album Enduring The Massacre.

Burning Witches

Burning Witches was founded during spring 2015 in Brugg, beautiful Switzerland, by guitar player Romana Kalkuhl. It has always been her big dream to perform with a women's heavy metal band on stage. During the music university studies she already started her first group: Atlas & Axis with which she has already recorded two albums and played several concerts!

In 2015 Romana started to look for talented ladies for the new combo. Jeanine Grob (bass) a longtime friend, became the first official member. At a party on a festival Romana met Seraina Telli (singer) for the first time. It clicked right away betweens the two girls, on a musical and on a personal level. Seraina brought in many ideas and a lot of experience cause of her studies at the Music Academy and her band Surrilium. The guitarist and the singer became a great songwriting team right away! Romana wrote her mate Schmier from Destruction/Panzer about her new project, he was interested in the new outfit and the ladies brought him onboard as a producer / consultant.

Angelwings

Angelwings were born in April 2013 out of a group of experienced musicians that had been in the local music scene for some time, and who had played in different bands a wide variety of musical genres.

Initially, to gel together as a band it was decided to perform a number of covers from Finnish symphonic metal sensation Nightwish. Soon it became clear to all that original music would have a very considerable element of orchestration. Thus, Angelwings became the first symphonic metal band from Gibraltar.

Bands
Warbeast

With the "retro-thrash" trend in full-swing and hordes of bands trying to re-create "old school metal", Texas monsters Warbeast offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of thrash or classic metal from the 1980's; it just comes naturally because that is who they are. Krush The Enemy, their debut CD on Philip Anselmo's Housecore Records, features 10 tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row. For Warbeast, "metal" means high-speed riffing, thunderous double bass, roaring vocals and plenty of blazing guitar solos.

Kissin' Dynamite

Exciting, dangerous and explosive - that's Kissin' Dynamite. The swabian sleaze mezal commando lives up to it's name, 'cause Kissin' Dynamite is more than just a band, it's an attitue to life. And this feeling is, what those 5 rockstars impart with every second they stand on stage.

What the fans love about this group, that was born in 2006, is entertainment on the highest stage. Due to cool 80ies look, biggest playing passion, accuratest tightness and electrifying stageacting, you get an stimulus overkill, visually as well as acoustically.
