Bands
Bloodway

Bloodway was born in July 2013, from the ideas of 3 musicians, Costin Chioreanu (guitar, vocals), Alex Ghita (drums) and Mihai Andrei (bass). The three merged their past musical experiences, challenging themselves to reach new borders of creativity, in order to shape a special band with an extremely coherent speech. The name Bloodway comes from the idea of experiences and paths that somebody can achieve and discover during a lifetime.

The reason why the band kept everything secret - from its own existence to any updates concerning creative progress - until this very moment it is simply the band member's desire of presenting just the results of their creativity, completely ignoring the nowadays social aspects of having a band. "We were totally focused on developing what we wanted to build together, so we just locked ourselves in the cell and kept everything away from the world outside. Our main goal was first to find our own path and to record a debut material as concentrated as possible. We simply left outside the door any possible influence from the people around us", Costin Chioreanu explains. "Even our closest friends had zero information on our existence as a band, until today... but our purpose demanded that precisely."

Roadburn Festival 2015 - Day 2: The Known And The Unknown

Che: As you guys might remember, for the past six years or so Roadburn has been having a curator take command on this second day, a member of a fairly well known band who not only gets to headline with the band on that day, but also selects which bands will be playing on three of the five stages. This year, curating duties went to Ivar Bjornson of Enslaved and Einar Selvik of Wardruna, immediately raising my curiosity for this "Houses Of The Holistic" day far beyond Mikael Akerfeldt's curating last year.

Bands
Mr. Bungle

Mr. Bungle was formed in 1985 in Eureka, California. The original line-up included Trevor Dunn on bass, Mike Patton on vocals, Trey Spruance on guitar, and Jed Watts on drums. The band took its name from two short films which appeared in early episodes of the "The Pee Wee Herman Show", in which an ill-mannered, un-hygienic puppet clown demonstrated how good grade-school kids should not behave (only later did band members learn, through Faith No More bassist Bill Gould, that the porn flick "Sharon's Sex Party" also stars a character named Mr. Bungle).

The Order Of The Solar Temple

There was a time in the history of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal when the boundaries of those genres were blurry and it was natural for them to flow together into powerful musical expressions, very often under the flag of occultism and esoterism. Today, those times of great ardour and creativity revive in the arcane melodies of The Order Of The Solar Temple, a wicked congregation performing strange rituals in the ancient magik of rock and roll.

Conceived in 2012 by Canadian singer/guitarist Matt "Macabre" Emery - once in the ranks of Funeral Circle and other Vancouver's metal acts - The Order Of The Solar Temple plaits the occult-tinged proto-metal of Blue Öyster Cult with the dark, introvert visions of Paul Chain; the doom arabesques of Pagan Altar with the dreadful metal outbursts of Demon and Mercyful Fate; the teachings of Aleister Crowley with the denim-and-leather philosophy of the first metal era.

Bands
Pantommind

Sometime in the distant 1993, in a small town in the heart of Bulgaria, a few friends gather up to play their favorite music. These are Pete Christ, "Floyd" Rossen, Jiip Randam and Lambie. They call themselves with the strange name Lavender Haze, while their music protrudes influences of Queensryche and shows affinity towards different electronic motives and complex compositions.

Two years later, the band is finally completed with the joining of the emblematic vocalist Tony Ivan, and drummer Drago. 1995 marks the change of the band's name to Pantommind, as well as their first studio recording - the song called "Every Dream Is A Game". Another year passes in recording of new material, and in 1996 the demo EP Unreality.

Noûs

Noûs exercise powerful, raw, sludgy, psychedelic, filthy metal. Dark heavy low end rumble, weighty drums, controlled dissonance with harsh, guttural vocals. Painfully chosen words attempting to describe the 5 piece Sludge/Doom Metal band from Ballarat, Australia.

Repulse of cliché is the attitude and focus when writing music.

Bands
Dimesland

With members' musical past and contemporary placement in a divergent array of bands including The Residents, Wild Hunt and more, abstract metal quartet, Dimesland produces a sound that is the result of a blend of controlled chaos and musical mutation, heavy tension and dark psychedelia. As Dimesland, guitarists Nolan Cook and Drew Cook, drummer/vocalist Harland Burkhart and bassist/vocalist Greg Brace create a place where aggression and imagination merge harmonically, rhythmically and lyrically to explore the terrain of psychological havoc and mental fracture. The band's live performances are frantic and dense and feature songs woven together with shorter pieces and textures for an almost nonstop presentation of sound.

Manimalism

Manimalism was founded by Kim Sølve and three others back in 1992. An anomaly in their own time, Manimalism was a silent contributor to the first wave of Norwegian post-Black Metal weirdness when names like Ved Buens Ende and Fleurety, before they became legendary, were their only contemporaries. As Taarenes Vaar, they released two demos, one in 1996 and one in 1997, both to critical acclaim from local magazines. It was hard for conformists to make sense of Manimalism, there was not much there that adhered to the expectations of the already indoctrinated Black Metal scene. Too bizarre to get proper recognition in their own time, too weird to be picked up by the Black Metal demo re-release wave a decade or so back, their two demos stand as the only evidence of their artistic merit.
