Bands
Cowards

Parisian quintet Cowards have become an unrelenting force since their inception in 2012, imposing their ruthless blend of metallic hardcore and sludge over a couple of 12" releases and stages all across Europe. Only getting stronger and stronger as time passes by, the band now returns with their second album "Rise To Infamy". These ten tracks stand up as their most cohesive work, brutally combining the heritage of Holy Terror/H8000 inspired-hardcore with devastating sludge and black metal savagery.

Soulslide

Soulslide was formed in a summer night in September 2002. David (guitar) and Lars (drums) decided, that the future must bring more possibilities for their musical progress. The new band should consist of musicians who are close friends and who know exactly what they want. They want to move straight forward in the future. So it came to the following cast:

The important part ..s was filled by Simone. Since a long time they played together with her, and because of the strength of their friendship it was an easy and well done decision. For the bass-job they decided to take Hendrik, a very impressive and experienced musician. Once again they could win a close friend as a band-member. The only thing missing in this team was a powerful vocalist. Luck was on their side and so they found Sandra. After visiting a rehearsal she decided to give her voice to Soulslide.

Edenfall

Edenfall are a Gothic Doom band from the heart of England's past, who emerged from the ashes in the autumn of 2009.

The idea of starting the band grew out of the relationship between the two founding members: Clare Webster (Lead Vocals) and Rob George (Guitar and Vocals) who were both drawn together by a passion for the darker aesthetics of life. Influenced by a range of weeping poets and tortured artists, Edenfall emit a truly melancholic sound that embodies all of the horror and beauty within ourselves, and the world around us.

Black Crown Initiate

Every year, an "it" band or the "buzz" band emerges in the hard rock and metal scene. It's the band that has everyone talking, from fans engaging in discussions deep in the digital space and on the viral online level to the industry insiders that are tracking the band's every move and charting its growth.

Progressive death metal Black Crown Initiate have proven themselves to be that band in 2014.

But it's not a fleeting status nor are they a "here today, gone tomorrow" product of hype. Black Crown Initiate have the metallic chops, the surgically precise skills, and a firm grasp of mind-blowing dynamics, all of which come together to cement their status as a band to watch for years to come, not just in 2014.

Horrendous

Horrendous was conceived in the womb of early 2009. With a fascination and utter obsession with the old school, the band emerged from a desolate scene, weaving webs of raunchy riffs through the rehearsal space air.

A demo entitled Sweet Blasphemies was written by the spring of 2009, and recorded in the summer. Copies of the demo were sold on CD-R through the band's myspace page. In mid-2010, Horrendous signed on with Skeleton Plague Records and Dark Descent Records, who co-released Sweet Blasphemies on cassette tape in June. The first pressing of this tape was limited to 200 copies, and was sold out in a couple of months. In March 2011, a second pressing of the Sweet Blasphemies demo was released.

Nhor

Since 2009, British music project Nhor creates its own unique art world that is characterized by a dream-like aura in all of its facets. This does not only pertain to the music ranging from doleful piano compositions to archaic Black Metal, but also to Nhor's own short stories - each of which was written in the context of their releases - as well as to the project's own imagery. "I owe everything I have created to the universe," Nhor approaches the origins of his inspiration. "I owe it to the stars and the planets, to the Moon and the Earth, to the wind and the rain. To the forest and its creatures, everything I have is borrowed from them. My music is but a poor interpretation of their song, and my imagination is just a diluted replica of Mother Nature's."

Omb

Long gone promises, frustration, sex, ADHD and personality disorders, low self-esteem versus delusions of grandeur, love, failures, and the constant need for self-expression - these are the things dreams are really made of.

Omb started as a 3 piece project from Haifa, Israel. Formed by Or Rozenfeld (Bass ,Contrabass), Davidavi Dolev (Vocals) and Yuval Tamir (Drums, percussions) at the end of 2009 as a traditional 5 piece act.

They performed under the name Of Marble's Black within the Israeli metal scene and harvested great superlatives from local critics. However, the guys were looking for something more than the usual construction of a song. After a year of live playing, bored by today's metal scene, the band decided to focus only on searching after the music which will become the band's first album - SwineSong (Recorded between march 2012 - june 2012).

She felt something in her heart told her that she was born to do this music, and she vowed to herself 'I'll go on tour overseas with my own heavy metal band someday'.

No politics. No religions.

Dictator

Initially experimentating with harsh cosmic resonances and piercing feedback reverberations bordering on music; analog and digital Noise harshness enveloped and shrouded in cavernous Dark Ambient soundscapes - an exploration of the decadence of existence while delving deep into the chaos of the human psyche. This early experimentation had one release see the dark of night after several months of torture in the dungeons known as Necrosadistic Studios.

Oh, Sleeper

Oh, Sleeper was founded in April 2006 after former member, Ryan Conley, of the short-lived rock band Terminal got together with former Evelynn and Between The Buried And Me guitarist Shane Blay and former Terminal bassist Lucas Starr (who was at the time with As Cities Burn). Eventually they found a vocalist in Micah Kinard and began practicing. The four members experienced typical problems of a band start-up (no place to practice, no money and different schedules), but the biggest obstacle was finding the final member. Countless awkward auditions failed to fill the missing position, until long time friend and fellow Terminal member James Erwin was found. After his addition to the lineup, the band released an EP, titled The Armored March, through 1x1 music.
