Talamyus

Talamyus was created in 2002 by the St-Jean brothers (Benoît - guitar/vocals and Dany - bass) with the firm intention of developing their own original style; an hybrid of their personal influences, mainly Thrash, Death and Viking Metal... Something that, at the time, was never really approached nor experimented with by any local bands in their home town of Montréal.

After several attempts in finding the right drummer to complete the very first Talamyus line-up, luck finally stroke when Jean-Philippe Latour (drums) offered his services. The band started jamming right away and after giving various local concerts, the band entered Studio En-Phase (Jean-Philippe's studio) in January of 2005, to record the band's very first album entitled "As Long As It Flows...", which was later on licensed to local indie label GWN Records.

Sorrow Plagues

Sorrow Plagues is the Brainchild of British musician David Lovejoy who composes, performs and produces the entirety of the music. The project began in late August of 2014 with the release "It Will Never End". He has since gone on to release a further 2 EPs and 2 singles available on Bandcamp, ITunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Sorrow Plagues combines the raw aggression and production of black metal with the ethereal soundscapes of Shoegaze and post-rock-esque climaxes to deliver a cathartic experience to every listener. Listeners have described a wide spectrum of experiences delivered by the music with some saying "it calms the soul right down" to saying that it's "Strongly recommended if you like depressive atmosphere"

Snow Burial then quickly jumped into the local Chicago music scene, sharing bills with bands like War Brides, The Swan King and An Aesthetic Anaesthetic. In February 2014, Snow Burial recorded and self released their second E.P., Oxblood Tides. In between continued local gigging, Snow Burial completed two Midwest tours in 2014. In addition to gaining more popularity and awareness in the Chicago and Midwest scenes, Snow Burial has been receiving positive reviews and airplay on local and regional radio.

Graveyard (ESP)

GRAVEYARD was born in 2002 after Julkarn (bass and vocals) and Bastard (guitar) had a serious drinking session during which the name, musical style and concept of the band were created. Since it was impossible to find a suitable drummer at the time, the band was put on hold until 2007 when Gusi entered the scene. With him on board, the band entered a dirty basement and recorded the demo "Into The Mausoleum". This recording caused some impact in the scene and, shortly after that, GRAVEYARD signed a deal with Blackseed Prods. After recruiting SBE as a second guitar player, "Into The Mausoleum" was released (remixed and with an added bonus song) as a MCD. During 2008, GRAVEYARD plays live many times and records new stuff for two splits, one with TERRORIST (through Iron Bonehead Prods.) and another one with DEATHEVOKATION (Nuclear War Now! Prods).

Burn The Priest

The roots of Burn The Priest were planted in 1990 when Mark Morton, Chris Adler and John Campbell met at Virginia Commonwealth University. The trio began playing at Adler's house in Richmond weathering chilly conditions.

"There was no heat at the house," recalls Campbell. "We would freeze our asses off, get really drunk and hang around the kerosene heaters trying to write metal songs. Kerosene fumes and Black Label beer were definitely what fueled our early days."

After graduation, Morton moved to Chicago to pursue a master's degree, but the band continued. A new guitarist, Abe Spear, replaced Morton as the band retired its instrumental sound and added Randy Blythe on vocals.

Camel Of Doom

Camel of Doom formed in 2001 as a one man project by Kris Clayton, then aged just 13. In 2002, Clayton recorded and self released two EPs, 'The Song with Rocks In' and 'Child of the Scream', with a full length 2003's 'The Desert at Night' following soon after. Following the positive reaction these recordings received through online zines and forums, Clayton decided to recruit a live band. A drummer was soon found in the form of Tom Sadler, Claytons schoolmate. After a couple of years of membership revolving doors (the longest lasting being bassist Ben Nield), the band solidified with Laura Whittingham on bass and Rosie Potts on sax. After a good 18 months of playing live and writing new material, outside pressures and various circumstances caused the band to declare an indefinite hiatus. After a three year period however, Kris Clayton ressurected the band with himself once again the sole member, and set to finishing the incomplete record left by the full line up. The resulting opus, 'The Diviners Sage' was released in 2008.

Paroxsihzem

Formed in 2007, Paroxsihzem puts forth a harsh, dark, demented, and atmospheric form of Black/Death metal. The music has a suffocating and nauseating feeling to it music which is only appropriate for the type of themes and inspiration used.There is no specific area of interest as history, philosophy, psychology and suicide are all touched upon as inspirational elements. The only relation between all these is to reach the darkest, non-fictional embodiments of humanity, no spiritual, fictional or delusional inspirations used, only tangible events that convey a much more brutal and contorted view of humanity allowing for a more realistic approach into the existence we lead.
