Bands
Starkill

Starkill was formed at the tail end of 2008 by Parker Jameson, Spencer Weidner and Charlie Federici. The band makes no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves. They combine what they love - melodic death metal, shredding guitars, blasting drum beats and the epic sounds of modern film scores - and make some of the most promising metal music heard this side of the Atlantic in years.

Starkill will release their debut album, Fires of Life, on March 4th!
Stay tuned for more info....

Bands
The Lord Weird Slough Feg

The band relocated to San Francisco, California in 1990 in hopes of resurrecting the ailing "true metal" scene in the United States. The band quickly gained a reputation by taking a stand against the trends and incorporating stage savagery with strong visual imagery.

Three demos were produced by the band in the early to mid nineties. These were followed up by a self produced, self titled debut CD released in 1996.

Scoring points for originality in the European underground, they aroused the interest of Dragonheart in 1998 and Twilight Of The Idols was released in 1999. This was followed by Down Among the Deadmen released in the year 2000, and sci-fi epic, Traveller in 2003.

Bands
Orbweaver

Miami psychedelic noise conjurers Orbweaver are currently readying their first full length album, with the working title of Hexagram 23. The record follows the band's critically-acclaimed debut EP, Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, which Terrorizer Magazine dubbed "a surreal and thoroughly absorbing journey that is equal parts psychedelic, brutal and intricate".

Orbweaver transcends leagues beyond traditional genre realms with their cosmic fusion of psychedelia, noise, and a warped interpretation of progressive death metal. Shifting between these erratic, trance-like elements, the foursome (featuring ex-members of Hate Eternal and Gigan), produce unearthly tones reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled chaos.

Union

The beginnings of Christ Agony date back to the first months of 1990 and until today, are inseparably connected with Cezar, the founder, the guitarist and the vocalist of the band. The 90s are the start and at the same time the quick prime for Christ Agony. It led to establishing of the band in the leading edge of metal scene and earned the legions of faithful fans.

When in 1990 Bathory released Hammerhearth, Cezar with the first lineup of the band, i.e. Zurek (drums) and Ash (bass and vocals), worked on the material that was released as the first band's demo, Sacronocturn. The second demo, Epitaph Of Christ, released in March 1992, drew attention of Carnage Records. It resulted not only in many concerts, but above all, in the publication of full-time album, Unholyunion, in 1993. The new way of Christ Agony music led to widely understood black metal, and true emotions in their music quickly earned credit among fans and reviewers. Unholyunion was to become one of the most original and significant recording in the world of black metal, and Christ Agony themselves were to lay out the direction for that genre.

Bands
Argus (Ro)

Argus was formed in 1996 by Fulmineos (vocals, drums, keyboard) and Erebus (guitars).

The first demo was unleashed in the summer of 1997, with some additional members at bass and keyboards from Negura Bunget, the other black metal band in our town. The material entitled "Diabolical risen to the nocturnal sky" was well received even though it had a mediocre sound.

Next demo "Castelul Noptii" was released in the fall of 1998; it was an improvement, both in sound and at conceptual level. It sold quite well in the national underground and also foreign contacts were made with this occasion. There were two new members: Tammuz (bass) and Naamah (keyboards) but soon they had to go too.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell

The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell are the last of a dying breed of Greasy Rock Musicians who somehow, despite and in spite of the last 3 decades trying their best to kill off balls out, non-bullshit rock'n'roll music, somehow, against all the frigging odds, still exist, surviving on a steady diet of God sent gigs, hire vans, broken down amps, split drum skins, greasy spoon fry ups, patched up jeans, roll-ups, cheap leather jackets, booze, weed and bathtub speed.

Spare them your sympathy - no-one made the silly bastards do it. They just NEED to!! Right??

Bands
Cacumen

Bonfire has a unique history to them as currently there are two bands who have held the name. The original group started out as Cacumen, became Bonfire and currently performing as Charade. The second group began as Lessmann/Ziller and then purchased the rights to the Bonfire name, which they have used ever since.

In 1972, in the West German town of Ingolstadt a teenaged guitarist, Hans Ziller, put together a rock band called Cacumen with his brother Karl, whom also played guitar, then gathered a bunch of friends to complete the band. The name of the group was from a school test Hans had taken and it translates from Latin meaning "the top of a mountain". For the next six years, the band played at local small venues, but had a fan base in their hometown. In 1978, the group consisted of Hans and Karl on guitars, Horst Maier on guitar (in 1983, Horst's last name would become Maier-Thorn), Hans Hauptmann on bass and Hans Forstner on drums. When the band was seeking a replacement singer at that time, Claus Lessmann, a fellow student of Hans', was hired.

Trophallaxy

Dysrider is a Symphodeath Metal band from Morges, Switzerland. Originally created under the name Trophallaxy in 2007, the band has released two studio albums and a demo.

Playing initially an effective but traditional Symphonic Metal, the band has continued to evolve in a more aggressive style by incorporating more elements specific to Death Metal. The contrast between the sweet voice of the singer Joëlle, her cello and the keyboard, with the Death vocals of Jonathan, rapid and violent rhythmics of the guitar, the bass and the drums, is even more striking and original.
