Sannhet

Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as SANNHET has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn's broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, SANNHET's sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold... The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.

Alpha Tiger

Germany's Alpha Tiger are living proof for the fact that traditional heavy metal does not necessarily need to be created by elderly people and the band's hard-hitting second album and Century Media debut Beneath The Surface kicks rusty rockers out of their wheelchairs with its remarkably fresh take on early Helloween and Queensryche - perfect metal pleasure guaranteed!

Thoroughly hailed in the national and international metal scene for its 2011 debut Man Or Machine (Sonic Attack Records) and much celebrated shows at German cult festivals Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air and Rock Hard festival as well as France's finest Hellfest, Alpha Tiger quickly became one of Germany's hottest heavy metal newcomers (e.g. #7 in the newcomer category of Rock Hard's reader's poll 2011).

Bands
At The Lake

At The Lake's music combines elements of folk, Celtic and classical music with heavy metal sound. The extensive use of the violins played by Milena (leader and composer) gives the music its unique character. The band re-recorded their demo together with two new songs. The classically trained singer Gosia together with the keyboard player Ania (ex-Sacriversum) gave the music a new bombastic and symphonic sound.

During the next one and a half year At The Lake played in various cities in Poland, visiting clubs, festivals and sharing the stage with many polish and foreign bands, including, among others, Sabaton, Tyr, Closterkeller.

Evil Twin

Band was brought to its genesis in 1999 a.d. by myself, Marcin Maksymowicz (Max). The music, which is created by Evil Twin is akin to such metal bands playing within the genres of black, death or even doom. It is difficult to speak of the actual establishment of a goal, to which the founding of this project could be put down to...

The first tracks came to light even before the year of 1999. To be honest, at first, the music which was created wasn't taken too seriously by me, the creator, although after a certain while my mind began to change the course on the direction the sounds were beginning to go. In this way, the first real recordings of Evil Twin came into existence. At the start, many tracks were left to the abyss of the forgotten until I decided upon a selection of the best, which soon became the first album - To Your God...

Bands
Iron Butterfly

The Los Angeles music climate of the late sixties and seventies was characterized by the heavy sounds and sentiments that reflected the revolutionary attitudes of the generation. Bursting onto that scene was a new group whose sound not only epitomized the hard attitudes of the youth with its heavy drumming and bass lines, but also embraced more delicate aspirations through its intricate guitar and keyboard overlays.

Iron Butterfly was signed to ATCO records (a division of Atlantic Records) in the spring of 1967 and released their first album, aptly titled Heavy, the following winter. While the band was on the road with the likes of: The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Traffic, The Who, and Cream, their impressive debut stayed on Billboard's album charts for almost a year.

Hierophant

Italy's Hierophant have been making waves since their formation back in 2010 and are excited to call Bridge Nine Records their new home. The band caught the attention of the label with their self-titled first album in 2011, which CVLT Nation called "straight killer no filler". The band went on to tour Europe with the likes of Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, Tombs, Pelican, Cancer Bats and many more, and made an intense and relentless live reputation for themselves. Now, Hierophant is gearing up to release their Bridge Nine debut, Great Mother: Holy Monster in the Spring of 2013. The band commented, "It is an absolute honor for us to be a part of Bridge 9's roster - it's one of the greatest hardcore labels, it has survived and is still around for a reason. It's a dream for us, and we couldn't have thought of any better conditions to release Great Mother: Holy Monster in. Stay tuned, it should be a great year!" Great Mother: Holy Monster was recorded in late 2012 by Steve Scanu and Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio and mixed by Lorenzo Stecconi and mastered by Alan Douches, and is an 8-song monster of an album and the band's most mammoth-sounding recording yet.

Argus Megere

The band was formed in 1996 by Fulmineos (vocals, drums, keyboard) and Erebus (guitars).

The first demo was unleashed in the summer of 1997, with some additional members at bass and keyboards from Negura Bunget, the other black metal band in our town. The material entitled "Diabolical risen to the nocturnal sky" was well received even though it had a mediocre sound.

Next demo "Castelul Noptii" was released in the fall of 1998; it was an improvement, both in sound and at conceptual level. It sold quite well in the national underground and also foreign contacts were made with this occasion. There were two new members: Tammuz (bass) and Naamah (keyboards) but soon they had to go too.

Bands
Sxuperion

Sxuperion is a one man Death / Black Metal band hailing from Mammoth Lakes, California. The band is the sole project of Lord Sxuperion who is also the drummer in the great Death Metal bands Valdur & Weverin . The album was recorded in parts through out 2010-2012 and was then released in 2013. The music here is done in a kind of old school European Black Metal style much like the stuff you would hear coming out in
the late '80's and early '90's.

It has a really cold and harsh aggressive Black Metal feel to it as if it was done in some old cave in the hillsides of some far off country in the middle of nowhere or an small abandoned building in the middle of nowhere. The music is really fast, sometimes spastic and raw with a dark brutality that blankets the majority of the sound. When the vocals come in you feel like the depths of Hell have been awoken and the demons are invade the land of the living.

Ex Libris

Progressive powerhouse Ex Libris entered the world of heavy metal in 2004. Hailing from the Netherlands, a country known for it's big and diverse female-fronted scene, they stand out as u unique voice within the genre. Classically trained soprano Dianne van Giersbergen soars and whispers throughout big, bombastic songs that are not only impressive in length, but also in sheer, raw power. There's ample room for progressive licks, melodies and solo's next to athmospheric and soothing soundscapes. But make no mistake, they put the pedal to the metal. Pounding double bass drums, furious riffs and frighteningly intense vocals all combine to make Ex Libris a singular force in the world of female-fronted music. Expect full-on musicianship, epic songwriting, extreme dynamics and the full emotional spectrum from one of the most gifted sopranos in The Netherlands.

Mary joined the band soon after, and within three months, they parted ways with drummer Kevin due musical differences. The band went through over a year of stagnation in which they worked with several drummers who did not work well with the band for various reasons until they were finally joined by Bret, former drummer for Maryland's SADISTIC TORMENT, in late 1996, enabling them realize their vision. At that time, the band chose the name GARDEN OF SHADOWS and after about six months, they recorded their highly acclaimed debut demo entitled "HEART OF THE CORONA" which has sold over 800 copies to date.
