Blood Revolt

There is extremity for the sake of it, bound within certain confines and boundaries. They might be the confines of the metal scene as it is or simply the confines and limits of having no imagination, foresight, understanding or temerity. Little in modern metal deals with genuine extremity, concerning itself more with fantasy than cruel cold reality.

Disregarding scene conventions or politics, in what seems like an odd mix on paper, makes complete sense when you take into account the bloody mindedness with which each musician has pursued their goals and the absolute conviction of their ideals.

Cruciamentum

Cruciamentum, meaning "torture" in Latin, seemed a suitably sinister banner for which to form the band beneath. The aim of Cruciamentum is to play dark, claustrophobic death metal influenced by bands such as Incantation, Demigod, Abhorrence, Rottrevore, Necros Christos, Immolation, and Morbid Angel.

Having existed since 2005, Cruciamentum finally solidified their line-up in late 2008 with original guitarist D.L. (ex-Imindain) taking over the recently vacated vocalist spot, joined by B.C. (Deceptor, ex-Dark Forest) on bass and D.B-H. (Grave Miasma, Indesinence, Adorior) on drums.

Crimson Wind

Crimson Wind was formed in Palermo in December 2008 when drummer Claudio Florio (Trinakrius, Holy Knights) and bassist Niki Zummo decide to create a band with strong influences in power metal. The founders of the band were then joined by Alessio Taormina and Emanuele "Izzy" Bonura. Their first release, The Wings of Salvation, was published in the the first few months of 2011 through IceWarrior Records for Europe and Rubicon Music for the Japanese market, where it received positive reviews from the general public. After a series of live performances in Italy and abroad, Crimson Wind prepared to record their second album, and having many ideas, the creative minds of Emanuele and Diego began writing the music and lyrics for the new album. Just as the band was about to write the vocals, they received sudden bad news: frontman Alessio Taormina announced he had to leave the band and move to London due to his work. The band spent the whole of 2012 in search of a new singer to replace Alessio.
