Bands
Persian Risk

Persian Risk is a Cardiff, Wales-based heavy metal band formed in 1979, originally consisting of guitarists Phil Campbell and Dave Bell, vocalist Jon Deverill, bassist Nick Hughes, and drummer Razz.

In late 1980, Deverill was headhunted by the Tygers Of Pan Tang and replaced by Carl Sentance, a former band mate of Hughes and Razz in Leading Star. New vocalist in place, Persian Risk issued the now highly collectible Calling For You' b/w 'Chase the Dragon 7" in 1981 before sacking Dave Bell's replacement, Alex Lohfink, and soldiering on as a four-piece. The band made further headway by contributing the aforementioned Calling For You' to the "Heavy Metal Heroes Vol.2 compilation (Heavy Metal Records, 1982) and a new cut, 50.000 Stallions, to the 60 Minutes Plus cassette compilation (Neat Records, 1982), also issued on vinyl as All Hell Let Loose by Neat in conjunction with Italy's Base Records label in 1983. Adding to their tally, the band followed it up with the 'Ridin' High' b/w 'Hurt You' 7" single through Neat, which earned Risk their strongest reviews yet.

Nine Treasures

All members are from Inner Mongolia. All lyrics are sung in Mongolian. In 2011, some young musicians from Inner Mongolia formed this band in Beijing, after participating in some club shows, especially Anda Music Festival and the inaugural Asian Metal Festival, gaining the respect and self-confidence to continue their music concept.

Nine Treasures all come from small remote counties, where metal music is hard to track down. But fate was on their side and somehow made them discover its charm. Like all juvenile musicians, they began form bands and copy their favorite bands. Afterwards Nine Treasures were formed on September 9th, 2011 with their newly-developed genre, a mix of merry Mongolian folk songs and midtempo metal, combining the soulful moriin huur and delightful balalaika melodies with the ingredients of traditional Mongolian folk music.
