Bands
Alkaloid

Alkaloid is a new band created by five good friends, who happen to be well-known musicians of the metal genre (including current and former members of bands like Obscura, Spawn Of Possession, Aborted, Dark Fortress, Necrophagist, God Dethroned, Blotted Science and Noneuclid). Their intention is to go beyond any limit that metal music sub-genres might have these days and create the world's most extreme Prog Metal band.

They define themselves through the field of tension created between musical opposites. All band members are active death metal musicians who nevertheless all have a much broader view of music than blast beats and growls. They establish from the beginning that they have many faces, and that oscillating between (seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is an important factor.

Bands
Myopia

Myopia began as the ambiguous dream of Mark Grey and Charles Woodruff. Forming in late 2003, the band began as a simple three piece group with a very undefined and humble sound. After several months of writing opening material, the two would recruit younger brother William Woodruff on the drums and Christopher Ferretti on bass. This first age lineup would go on to record their first EP "The Rising," under independent auspices. We sincerely hope no one still has a copy of this.

Michael Cavadini came on board in 2005 as the group's sorely needed keyboardist. By this point, Myopia had been moving in a far more epic direction than on its previous material, and Michael's classic piano education made him a worthy addition. Writing and touring would continue throughout that year, culminating with the release of the band's first, self-produced full-length, "The Straightway." Bassist Chris Ferretti would depart shortly after this release. The band emerged halfway through 2006 from the throes of uncertainty with Kyle Longley as the new bassist.

Convulse

Convulse current lineup features the band's original vocalist, guitarist and bass player, and their brand of classic old-school death metal still sounds like it's 1991. With a new full length album scheduled for autumn 2013, this is the first recorded material by Convulse since their demise in the mid-Nineties.

"Our new material has a strong old-school death metal feel to it, and the band is tighter than ever before," says Convulse guitarist/vocalist Rami Jämsä. "When recording, we concentrated on the energy brought on by playing everything live no triggers or Pro Tools. Nothing beats a well-rehearsed band playing live, be it on stage or in the studio."

Dysrider

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.
