Helleborus

Conceived within the womb of Execration, Helleborus is the latest emanation of Jerred & Wyatt Houseman. Like the enigmatic and deadly winter flower from which the project takes its name, Helleborus pushes the exploration of traditional black metal into the uncharted territory of sensual duality and mysticism. Building on their professional experience with Execration and personal experiences through Akhenaten, the Houseman brothers sought a deeper expression of their experiential-driven musical style that audiences can connect with through a union of opposites.

Akral Necrosis

A decade has passed since Akral Necrosis was formed in 2006, emerging from a scene of mostly melodic bands. From the first day, the band members decided to walk a different path by choosing to create music and a blend of black and thrash metal which would reflect their lust for harsh and aggressive metal, but also leave place for experiments. The bands shows have been praised through the years by the public and also the media, sharing the stage with Hecate Enthroned, Cirith Gorgor, Ancient Rites, Necrodeath, Eastern Front, Cadaveria, Keep of Kalessin, Onslaught, Endstille, Absu and many more. From 2006 to the present day, Akral Necrosis has constantly played festivals and clubs, while releasing their first single in 2008, entitled "Slay the Whore" through Salute Records from Sweden. The single was followed by a self released EP - "Outcast Litanies" centered around a new single, "Pandemic Dominion" which was chosen by Terrorizer Mag for their New Blood compilation in 2011. After a short while, the band released their first official video for "Pandemic Dominion", directed by the well known Costin Chioreanu from Twilight13Media. In 2012, the first album saw daylight - "Pandemic Dominion" was very well received by fans of the band. The album featured 8 tracks, all surrounded by a specific concept.

Turia

Turia: Statement of Purpose

Turia was started in the winter of 2014. The band aims to evoke gripping black metal, stripped to its bare necessities. Utilizing a minimal setup of drums and guitar they bring to life a mirage of sound while anguished screams drag the listener into a vastness of desolation.

Their first album "Dor" is a strong statement of purpose in both its fury and its entrancement. Four tracks of minimalistic rage and power will put Turia on the map for those seeking worth within the rubble of our modern world.

Weedeater

In the mid-1990's, Weedeater arose from the ashes of the southern-drug-lord-band Buzzov-en, who had disbanded along the swampy shores of the Cape Fear river in North Carolina not too long before.

Fronted by famed madman and bass virtuoso "Dixie" Dave Collins, this three piece doom juggernaut has been eating audiences alive for more than 10 years now.

After two critically acclaimed full length releases under their belts recorded by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Melvins, High On Fire, etc.) and released respectively on Berserker and Crucial Blast Records, the latest and highly anticipated album, entitled "God Luck And Good Speed"

Memoriam

Memoriam was primarily developed to fill the void that was left following the tragic death of Martin 'Kiddie' Kearns, the drummer from Bolt Thrower back in September 2015. Bolt Thrower subsequently placed all activity on hold for the foreseeable future which gave Karl Willetts an opportunity to develop a new project with friends that had expressed interest in forming a band for some time.

Memoriam are an Old School Death Metal band and maintain the standards set by previous bands that the members have played with, focusing on the themes of death, loss and war.

Bands
Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus

Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus are brusque, heavy and devoted. In their music beautiful northern melodies meet a stone wall of three guitars bringing heaviness into new dimensions. Behind this wall a committed listener can hear influences from old masters such as Black Sabbath and Neil Young integrate with the influence from modern metal artists.

The lyrics of the band deal with global and personal tragedies. Some themes used include nuclear waste deliveries, the global warming phenomenon, the death of a loved one, as well as the ill-fortuned love of a bachelor from the Finnish countryside with an estonian woman. The latter one has a tragic end: the woman leaves, the man stays. One should keep in mind that hanging oneself requires guts when the roof is too low and the rope too thick...
