"Right, quick question, name a metal band from Costa Rica. Come on, the clocks ticking.. you can't? Well, Sight Of Emptiness soon plan on putting that right. Recent winners of the Unsigned Band Contest at Bloodstock 2007, the Costa Rican's funded their own trip over to the UK and, for that determination alone, they deserve your time". Posted by Graham Finney @ (Planet-loud.com UK).

Costa Rica is a small democratic and peaceful country in Central America. When you think of this place, you might think tropical rainforest, stunning beaches, amazing animals and Latin rhythm. Think again! Officially this country has not had an army since 1949, but that does not count for the Army of Metal that Sight of Emptiness has in stock for you.

Narnia

With so many heavy metal bands traipsing off to Tolkien's middle earth for mystical yarns with which to inspire their music, Sweden's Narnia chose the significantly less referenced but nearly as timeless works of C.S. Lewis instead, and not at all flippantly, since they share their Christian beliefs with that author.

Musically, Narnia's personal "quest" consists of delivering a speedy and highly melodic style of heavy rock, adorned with progressive, neoclassical, and power metal tendencies, and was introduced to fans via 1998's Awakening album. Recorded by the founding duo of vocalist Christian Liljegren and guitarist Carljohan Grimmark with the help of session musicians, the LP achieved a surprising popularity that quickly convinced the two men that they should flesh out Narnia into a proper working band. So they added keyboardist Martin Claésson, bassist Jakob Persson, and drummer Fredrik Junhammar for subsequent LPs like 1999's Long Live The King, 2001's Desert Land, and 2003's The Great Fall - all of which were released through Nuclear Blast Records and featured a lion on their covers, in reference to the Aslan character in Lewis' books.

Ravenscry

The project started in August 2008, near Milan, with an encounter between guitarist Paul Raimondi (ex-drummer Hyperion), bassist Fagio, and Simon Carminati behind the drums, Soon after, they were joined by guitarist Mauro Paganelli. A month and several listening sessions later, the four musicians are captured by the voice of Giulia Stefani, a talented vocalist from Rome who then joined the project. Giulia fits perfectly the idea of Ravenscry: a voice full of intensity and heat, capable of many shades, who became an added value for the band's music, which was therefore able to double the range of accessible emotions, intertwining 8 string-guitar riffs with the pleasing melodies created by her voice. The style was deliberately modern, incorporating the influences of very diverse components, comprised primarily of rock and metal, while at the same time leaving room for new influences, such as electronics. The themes in the lyrics are numerous and strong: the base is a cry of protest against a system where meritocracy does not exist and the sacrifice has a purpose often illusory, difficult relationships between parents and children who also find themselves, physical pleasure, and alienation. Nothing is left out, because music is life and tells every aspect of it.

Orchid

Classic Heavy Rock is once again making an unstoppable advance onto the music scene. One of the greatest new acts of its kind is surely ORCHID. Founded in 2007 in San Francisco, the band is rapidly overtaking and destroying each and every competitor; and there are many reasons why.

Musically, ORCHID owe their sound to the grand masters of rock. They walk in the footsteps of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and even Pink Floyd - they certainly are generating abundant exhilaration wherever they roam. This musical genre, the mix of blues, folk and hard rock, was surely the most widespread bravura in the early seventies, and those legendary acts mentioned above would easily fill stadiums even today. Their timeless music has survived decades of trends and fashions. It has inspired multiple generations of hard rock acts and is once again spreading to the forefront of rock. It is hard music, music with groove, music that is authentic and true to its roots. It can fill the largest of arenas to enthrall millions of concertgoers around the globe.

Wraith Of The Ropes

Wraith of the Ropes play Horror Metal exclusively! Our "Horror Metal" contains elements of Doom Metal, Black Metal and 70's & 80's Horror Film scores/soundtracks. Our first album "Ada" is heavily depressive and could be considered "Doom Metal" by some, though we are not a Doom Metal band. It is a concept album about shattered dreams, ruined lives, depression, death and suicide.

Our second album, "Demonic Influence", is now being worked on and will be much more in the realms of Black Metal though the Horror Film Music inspiration will still be just as strong. The lethargic, depressive, suicidal Horror of 'Ada' will be replaced with the hateful, demonic, blastbeat-laden Horror on 'Demonic Influence'. We will still consider our music "Horror Metal" and nothing else. Our allegiance is to HORROR more than any particular Metal sub-genre and we plan to dramatically overhaul and experiment with our sound on every album.

Killing Touch

Killing Touch is the new band, founded and strongly desired by Michele Luppi (Vision Divine, Los Angeles, MR.PIG). The artistic and professional experiences of one of the most esteemed Metal singers of our times have lead to "One Of A Kind", the debut album.

One Of A Kind is a concept-album, freely inspired by Stephen King's novel "The Dead Zone", composed by 12 tracks of powerful, refined and meticulously crafted sound. All the songs are the result and follow the natural course of a path that began years ago; they develop a great synergy between melody, harmony and lyrics, which makes every song unique, though perfectly inserted in the concept.

Crown Of Autumn

Crown of Autumn came to light in October 1996 by the will of the founding member Emanuele Rastelli (guitars, bass and keyboards) to create a dark and epic metal project. Two other members joined him: Diego Balconi on melodic vocals and Marco Ibba on screamy vocals. In the same year the band released their four songs demo tape "Ruins", with the help of a session drummer. This work was very appreciated by both magazines and fans, having sold very well in the underground market.

"Ruins" brought a couple of contract proposals to Crown of Autumn but Emanuele Rastelli and the new drummer Mattia Stancioiu decided to found their own record label in order to have total control on the band's productions. The first full length album "The Treasures Arcane" was released in 1997 by the new born label Elnor Productions. This record was even more epic and atmospheric than the previous recording. The sound evolved towards a mixture of medieval touches and epic metal rides, acoustic breaks and black metal assaults. The concept lyrics, written in old English, contributed to enshroud the album with an aura of antiquity and mystery.

Dark Covenant

Dark Covenant's second incarnation saw the light in the summer of 2009 by long time musical associates Yves "evillair" Allaire (Nordic Winter/Strigoï Mort/ Graven Dusk, Fjörd) and Christian "Woodenness" Verreault (Fjörd).
Yet the initial ideas of the music were sketched out back in 1993/early 94 under the name of Dawn of Sorrow. It was then that the two musicians initially put to paper and into recording, the first rough samples of their own version of classic Doom Metal inspired by such legends as Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, Memento Mori, Sorcery, Mercy and of course Black Sabbath. But fate weaved a destiny other that the immediate realization of their musical project. It was only some 16 years later, after each followed his own musical path, that both artists reunited again under the proper forces of fate, and brought back to life their long time passion: Epic Doom Metal. In the fall of 2009, Christian's brother, Stephane "Somatologies" Verreault (Fjörd) joined the covenant on bass. Thus the band was re-named Dark Covenant, the pact was sealed.
