Bands
Deadsmoke

Deadsmoke is an Italian doom sludge band that sounds like amplifiers buried in the deep, with down-tuned monolithic guitar riff scraping the soil down to the core of the earth.
Slow, hypnotic, dissonant cadences recall the eternal need for isolation and the atavistic fear of nothingness.
Your soul is already burned, smoke is what remains.

Beyond Grace

Darkly melodic, deceptively progressive, heavier than the gates of hell,...

We are a band committed to writing simply the best music we possibly can. Regardless of convention or genre, we place a focus on quality musicianship and songwriting, welded onto a backbone of melodic death metal that pays homage to, but is never derivative of, our varied influences.

We eschew the pointless aggression and 'angry white male' syndrome so often synonymous with metal and play not to maximise aggression, but to express sorrow and frustration at the way of the world.
