Murmuüre

All Murmuüre material is based on a one hour guitar improvisation from November 2006.
Selected parts were further edited to fit a rhythmic structure, and merged with additional layers of sound.
This process of mixing & endless re-writing took 3 years until final completion.
The percussions are a mixture of the original programmed drums, and some (extremely re-edited) additional live drumming.
Vocals were recorded during a cathartic trance at a sacred place in the forest, with a mini-disc recorder.

Inverloch

Since the demise of Australia's Disembowelment in 1993, a void has formed for that band's epic blend of slow atmospherics and blasting brutality. Few have succeeded in channeling this legacy, until Melbourne's Inverloch (featuring 2/4 of the legendary Disembowelment) took the global stage in the late 2000s.

In 2012, Inverloch released their debut EP Dusk | Subside, a crushing release featuring bursts of pounding blast beats that erupt out of tranquil soundscapes. Inverloch deftly follow up on the sound & feel that Disembowelment first trademarked in the early 1990s and take it into 2016 with their own, cold, brutal sound & style. The band played their first-ever show at the legendary Roadburn Festival in The Netherlands, and have been lauded worldwide by renowned publications such as Decibel and Terrorizer, the latter of which stated that Inverloch " the boundaries of heaviness beyond their breaking point."

Deluge

Thunder rumbles from afar as the rain falls incessantly, needlelike, merciless. A wild storm suddenly breaks out and fades out to quietness, nothingness. Déluge delivers a razor sharp blend of Black Metal and Post-Hardcore for an incredibly modern, visceral and atmospheric result. The crushing sound of Æther, resulting from the work of Christophe Edrich (Hacride, Klone, The Ocean) and Joey Sturgis (The Acacia Strain, Born Of Osiris, Oceano), will assuredly leave a mark on the swarming Black Metal scene.

The Resistance

The Resistance formed in 2011 and are based in Gothenburg and Stockholm. The band consists of...... Ah, common, FUCK THAT SHIT. You're bored of reading these stupid band info sheets. Thanks. So are we! You know the deal and by reading the band member's names you probably know where this is going. We're gonna cut out the name dropping here.

you don't have a clue, Google is your friend. The Resistance is finally four guys who made up their mind and recorded the music they wanted play for a long time. It turned out that the good old violent sound of Swedish Death Metal put that certain smile to the faces, the one you see when something special happens. Blended with the raw energy of hardcore the result was just a vile bastard waiting to tear ears apart, break your neck and give you simply a good time. Ah yeah, we are just drifting into having info sheet stereotypes here again, huh? Ok, let's stop here and listen to the music, short info texts are the best anyway

Bands
Noothgrush

In 1994 Gary and Chiyo decided to start a band that played slow, heavy, riff-based music. They were soon joined by Tom Choi and Luis DaVilla. Their slow tempos and sound was punctuated by a severe low-end attack when Gary and Luis both played bass on many songs. Turned out Tom and Luis had different ideas on direction and just several months into the project and directly after recording the songs they had written together, both of them departed.

Russ joined, new songs were being written and the band began playing out. Chiyo's friend Chris Dodge soon offered to put out a 7". This created a buzz and offers started coming in to do splits culminating with the ultimate honor of doing a split 12" and CD with Corrupted. Matt Harvey played guitar and sang on many songs that ended up on 7"s and we played some great shows with him such as our first Slap a Ham's Fiesta Grande festival. Then Matt departed and Gary played 2nd guitar for awhile and Al Ruel took over in the bass department. Al also left the band after a year and Gary took over the bass duties once again. The 90's were filled with writing, recording, endless shows and doing a few tours along the way with others like Seized, Corrupted and Wisigoth.

Northlane

The band hit the stage in mid-2009, delivering powerful and dynamic live performances. Their popularity soared, with local attention rapidly amounting to national support with each show. Within a year, Northlane were a common name, demanded across the nation due to their reputation as one of the tightest bands; they are known for their 'take no prisoners' attitude when it comes to buckling down and working hard with a DIY attitude.

In early 2010, Northlane released their debut six-track EP, titled Hollow Existence, which they co-produced in a friend's garage studio. Their debut full length album entitled Discoveries, which was labelled by Kill Your Stereo as "Australian album of the year" coincided with their signing to We Are Unified and was released to much anticipation on 11-11-11, straight off the back of a 24 date regional headline tour.
