Bosse-De-Nage

Almost as enigmatic and mysterious as their sound, Bosse-de-Nage are an experimental black metal band from the Bay Area. Drawing from the sonic sprawl of post-rock, the band crafts a sound that's as comfortable expanding outward as it is contracting into a suffocating mass of needling guitars and frantic drumming. The reclusive band released its self-titled debut in 2010 (though the album was recorded in 2007) through Flenser before following up the next year with its second album, II. Bosse-de-Nage eventually got the attention of Profound Lore, which released their third offering, III, in 2012.

Hammercult

Since its formation in late 2010, Hammercult has created a violent mixture of extreme thrash metal with a nasty punk approach, delivering crunching riffs, furious vocals, pounding drum skins and sickening lyrics. In a matter of months, Hammercult has managed to gather a loyal hardcore fan base through the band's intense live show attitude - no bullshit, just metal!

After conquering the hearts of the Iocal metalheads, Hammercult emerged victorious at the international Metal Battle competition at Wacken Open Air in summer 2011. But this was just the beginning - signing to the German label Sonic Attack Records, founded by Karl Walterbach, and embarking on a European tour with crossover legends D.R.I. wrapped up an amazing and eventful year for the unstoppable thrashers.
