Razorwyre

The initial idea for Razorwyre was conceived by Chris Calavrias and James Murray in 2008, whom both had a strong desire to write and perform heavy metal music in the true style of the 1980's. Though ideas were discussed, and initial material was written, it wasn't until later when the project began to come to fruition. Through partying at the notorious Lorne Street practice space, the two guitarists met like-minded individuals who shared the passion for traditional forms of metal music. Drummer Nick was recruited first, followed by bassist Simon, and then the line up was completed with the addition of vocalist Z Chylde.

Acid Reign

Acid Reign were a band from Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK, formed in 1985 that disbanded in 1991. They played an energetic style of thrash metal that took a more humorous approach to the music. The band's first release was the Moshkinstein demo in 1987, which led to them signing with British thrash specialists Under One Flag (under Music For Nations) in 1988 for their first EP of the same name. This resulted in the band supporting such acts as Flotsam & Jetsam and Death Angel. Shortly after the release, Gaz Jennings and Ian Gangwer were replaced by Mac (Holoslade), and Adam Lehan, (Lord Crucifier). Acid Reign struck up a friendship with label mates Nuclear Assault and Exodus, and toured the UK and Europe in a supporting role during the Survive Tour and Fabulous Disaster Tour.

Heavydeath

The band, Heavydeath, from Sweden was formed with purpose to create and play some kind of "heavy death" music. The music is recorded as a trio. No frills. Only one guitar, bass, drums and some vocals on top/inside of the riffs.

The first embryo of the band was forged in 2008/2009 (after Runemagick was put on hold), when Nicklas Rudolfsson and Daniel Moilanen went into a studio (Sonic Train Studios) for a day and wrote/jammed/recorded a song with a playing time of over 28 minutes. The recording was not completed with bass and vocals. The whole thing ran out of steam when Nicklas and Daniel moved to different locations. The recording session fell into oblivion for several years. The band or project as it was back then had no name...

Thy Wicked

Thy Wicked was founded in 2000 by Sebastian (guitar), Lars (voc.), Thomas (drums) and Holly (bass). We decided to use our music in our pagan past and future. Our music style leveled off between Death / Black Metal and Thrash. We just call it "MIDGARD PAGAN METAL". But for the right sound simply did not have a 2nd Guitar. This we found to Hannes.

End of 2000 we recorded our demo "Skaldic Black Art" and collected our first experiences on stage. We played with Fleshless, Soul Demise, Mental Amputation, Dark Age, delirium tremens, Miocene, and Psychotron Sacrificed.

Vesperia

The cloudy beginnings of Vesperia lay etched in the gorged bodies of former musical projects among the now 4 piece band. Twisting, writhing and forcing their aural onslaught upon metal audiences across the globe have sincerely ensured the band's continuity through all the harsh and arduous battles modern metal bands are sure to encounter in their tenures.

Originally formed in 2005 by lead vocalist/bassist Morgan Rider as a black metal band, the sound, direction and theme of the music naturally evolved into the style of fierce and heroic metal the band is now known for. Shortly after releasing their long overdue brand melodic metal 2011 full-length Voyage from Vinland, Vesperia redefined their purpose and direction once and finally with their 2012 demo The Swordsman and 2013 full-length An Olden Tale, drawing the ears and attention of metal fans around the world and demonstrating their true mastery of their craft.

Mass

The history of Mass reaches back to the year 1973 when Radny V. (V for Viktor) together with singer Josef Hartl, guitarist Walter Speck and Swiss drummer Charles Frey (today known as the author Akron) formed the band, Black Mass. After Speck had committed suicide by jumping from a window, due to psychic problems, he was replaced by guitarist Gerd Schneider from Saarbrücken, who had previously played with the Scorpions' drummer Hermann Erbel alias Hermann Rarebell for RS Rindfleisch. However, Schneider departed after one year due to heavy drug problems and was replaced by English guitarist Mick Thackeray (The Meseys), who played with the Slaves and Countdowns in Switzerland and with Abi Ofarim in Munich, who, in addition, brought his Scottish roadie Doug. At the same time Johannes Eder, who came from the English band "I Drive", replaced drummer Frey, who had been giving books a go, according to Radny. In addition to this, the band name was shortened to "Mass". With this lineup Mass recorded an album in the Studio 70 in Munich in April 1975, together with Dave Siddle, who used to work with the Beatles, Jimy Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Animals and Deep Purple among others, at the mixer. This album has never been published due to singer Josef Hartl's drug problems. Unfortunately, these tapes are missing to this day. However, the turbulent times continued and just one year later in 1998, Hartl died (due to drug problems) and Thackeray had to go due alcoholism.

Aktor

In a world of collaborations and compromises, Aktor achieves these ends by sustaining a respectful silence between its creative contributors: avant-garde serialists Jussi Lehtisalo and Tomi Leppänen in Pori, Finland, and across the Atlantic in Chicago, heavy metal singer/songwriter Professor Black.

All in all, one could say that Aktor plays Top 40 heavy metal with a delicious psychedelic flair that may one day have some fans in common with Sandy Perlman, Alan Davey, and/or Roky Erickson. Truthfully, Aktor's origins are uncertain and its intentions unspecified, and its music and process are accordingly unconceptual and a perhaps bit tense. Yet the outcome has much in common with the premeditated, synthetic pop music that has dominated airwaves since the 80's. The lyrical narrative is similarly accessible on the surface, despite its protagonist(s) speaking from altered and/or incomplete states of being.
