Heresiarh

The unheralded Wyverns of the Darkside emerged as phoenix from the ashes of the two oldest Latvian black metal bands, Dark Reign and Alfheim, namely. Ere mid-summer '97 it was when Burial Jester (the musical Namer of the line-up), his brother Kaladun (also in the ranks of Skyforger), and the noble Mourn Majesty of Dark Reign allied with Hater and Morgueldar of the withering Alfheim, and were joined by the charming elven princess Rasa, known from her background chanting experience with Neglected Fields and several other Latvian metal outfits. And thus it came to pass that a brighter constellation was arrayed in the raven skies of all earths - the Winged Constellation - HERESIARH. Under the timeless stare of the eyes of the dead the six heirs of witchcraft laboured for several moons to lay foundations to their euphony. As the approach of lacing melodic and fast black metal music with lead female soprano vocals seemed to be a highly unique idea and the Order felt their creation to stand out of the clichesque genre of evil black metal, they gave it an original name - dragon metal, be it 'epic', 'majestic', 'melodic' or 'romantic'. HERESIARH conjure epic anthems to the glorious Elder days ere the fall of High Sorcery and the passing of the elven-folk, when dragons still crested the sky, the Moon was young, the Earth was vast, sword was the only judge and humanity was in general far closer to the Truth than nowadays. Our music stands for crawling, flying, warring and simply being magic… After several live appearances the band went for a 16-track death metal studio in Riga, and during the last fortnight of the same year recorded its debut demo entitled "Dragons of War", which was released on tape by Morgueldar's k7-label Elven Witchcraft in January '98. Despite the watery production (therefore it stands for the elemental chapter Water) the first six chapters from the Chronicles of Elvenwine received an overwhelming response from the underground press, and have this far spread over 700 copies earthwide...

Bands
Hyperion

Hyperion was formed in 2007 in Stockholm, Sweden. The original vision was to create melodic music rich in harmony that was also brutal and epic, thus in the beginning Hyperion were inspired by many Swedish, primarily melodic, death metal bands and still are to this day. The only remaining members from this line-up are Erik Molnar and Anders Peterson.

Later, the band took a move towards incorporating elements of Swedish and Norwegian black metal. Mikael Malm, Efe Guner (former guitarist), Harry Lauraéus and Raul Vicente (former bass guitarist) joined the ranks.

Bands
Foehammer

Hailing from the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, Foehammer's music belies its bustling surroundings. Rather, Foehammer conjure the creeping tectonic progression of transform faults, culminating in releases of sound waves the magnitude of which is best measured by seismometers. In keeping with the appropriate timescale, each of the three funeral doom epics on Foehammer's debut EP clock in past the 9 minute mark. Foehammer is doom metal in the truest sense of the appellation, crushing, unrelenting and suffused with a foreboding of cataclysm that smothers each of the EP's all-to-brief 34 minutes. Foehammer's rupturing first salvo will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Graves At Sea, Warhorse, Corrupted, Hell, Buried at Sea and other purveyors of the slow.
