Orbit Culture

In the deep forests of southern Sweden lies the small town of Eksjö where the band Orbit Culture originates. The idea of the band grew strong within singer & rhythm guitarist Niklas and lead guitarist Maximilian after messing around with some unpolished demos at home. At that time, Maximilian was currently playing with another local band called Abstract Noise, together with Orbit Culture's fellow drummer Markus Bladh. Maximilian recruited Markus to join his new band, followed by the arrival of Christoffer Olsson on bass guitar. The line-up was now complete.

ARRM

ARRM came to life in 2010 as a solo project of guitarist Artur Rumiński (Thaw, Furia). "First it was only me but as time went by I decided to expand ARRM, first by adding bass player Rafał Miciński. Then Maciej Śmigrodzki (Thaw) came to replace him and we even managed to play some concerts supporting Nadja and Mamiffer", recalls Rumiński. "A couple of our tracks got released as part of cassette split with Stara Rzeka and Innercity Trio but at the end of 2012 ARRM went on a hiatus so that we could concentrate on other projects. It lasted until March 2016 and brought some personal changes - we welcomed back Rafał Miciński, Maciej Śmigrodzki switched to keyboards and drummer Michał Leks joined the band".

Pylar

The members of Pylar are sacred smiths, Fire Owners and we use him to change the state of metal and achieve its perfection. The metal is very dangerous to handle due to its ambivalent character, it is loaded with both sacred and demonic forces. We are divine blacksmiths in charge of forging the weapons of the gods ...

We are the incorruptibility, the permanence, the infinite duration, an existence independent of the temporal becoming ... We are the vehicle for the transmutation of the Great Metal ... Through us are manifested those who have long been absent ... We are the Aludel ... We are the bowels of the Earth ... We are the matrix where the Electrum is incubated ... We are the bowels of the earth ...

Gygax

GYGAX is a no-frills, classic rock/heavy metal hybrid, heavily steeped in the imagery of fantasy literature and role playing games, and rooted in the musical stylings of metallic '70s rockers Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple, with equal parts metal and boogie-inducing groove. Though their name is attributed to the creator of Dungeons & Dragons, the band has described themselves more simply as "a beacon and an anthem for anyone who's interests lie in creativity and the powers of imagination."

Verge

Verge presents modern black metal based on occult philosophy. That means before anything else that our work is holistic and practical, not only music and "ideological" lyrics added to it. Verge is not propaganda for certain ideas but an attempt to manifest a presence that is in many ways emergent to the current personalities in the band. Though the approch varies between different songs and releases, the core of Verge is always to picture, as deeply and widely as possible, mankind channeling the received divine serpent fire of Lucifer. We have not so far been able to form a stable line-up and style of presentation. But it might be that it is our task to be in constant and unpredictable movement; there is still always the same presence behind everything. The first two ep..s (first one recorded in early and the second one in late 2005) contain more traditional black metal compositions and direct destructive approach. The first full-length Hatemagic became much more varied yet impulsive. Few days ago was released our split with Blood Red Fog, recorded in 2008. It presents absolutely uncompromising and ugly art on ultimate spiritual hybris. We are currently finishing the second full-length "Sex & Violence", our easily most complete and well performed work so far. No one knows the future, but expect always only the most creative and uncompromising art with dedication from us. -Wrong 25.6.2010

Martyrium

MartYriuM was formed by Count Mortem in 1999 who conveyed his ideas into a mix of black/death metal riffs. Alongside Úmarth who contributed a deluge of sinister orchestrations focused on bringing the much desired dark atmospheric tone.

With Sherath's barrage of melodic riffs, Sandmist's substratum bass-tunes and Obscure's diabolical growls Martyrium breeds a particular sound that makes their crowd conceive disquieting notions. Portraying the image of the modern metal Subculture, MartYriuM appear on stage behind pale corpse-paint as a female fronted band infusing an ominous mood.

Ivanhoe

During the festival at the cathedral of Gandersheim in 2001, sound designer Achim Welsch and Mischa Mang, who performed there as „Judas" in the musical „Jesus Christ Superstar", felt bored while they had a break. They knew each other just from the rehearsals, but Achim was impressed by Mischa's guttural voice full of divine pain and demonic power. When the melody of a well known Dream Theater epos was played an the piano and Achim heard the voice of "Judas" sing along, he realized that a new era had begun. That was the end of a long search, which had begun in 1998 when singer Andy B. Franck had left the band. The remaining band members Giovanni Soulas and Achim Welsch soon realized that his position would be hard to fill, because his style left its mark on three ambitious albums, and with Ivanhoe he definitely became the ultimate tip of the German prog-metal scene.
