Khariot

Khariot was formed in October 2008 in Perth, Western Australia, by Gavin Foo (Guitars, vocals), Shah Zaini (Guitars, vocals) and Michael Rule (Drums, percussion) from their history of playing together and interests in similar music. After months of searching, the lineup was completed with the addition of bassist Darren Joy in May 2009.

Gavin and Michael, after having had experience onstage and in the studio with Noctis and The Alchemont (respectively) and 2 EPs under their belts, the 3 have combined forces to create a meld of metal indescribable in words, taking influences and ranging everywhere from dissonant black metal to technical death, thrash to doom and drone.

Cognizance

Cognizance is a British extreme metal outfit established in the spring of 2012. The project was born when founding members Alex Baillie and Henry Pryce began to write and record a modern sounding death metal EP. Taking elements from other styles within the genre, Cognizance have been able to create their own diverse brand of death metal which fuses memorable melodic passages with virtuoso technical musicianship.

The founding members wrote, engineered and recorded all of the music besides drums for their debut EP Inquisition released 1/2/13. The drums were written and performed by Alex Rudinger (ex-The Faceless, Conquering Dystopia), he recorded the four tracks at his home studio in Maryland USA. Once completed the EP was then mixed and mastered in Canada by Sacha Laskow at Perfect Fifth Audio Architects.

Hadal Maw

Hadal Maw took form when guitarist Nick Rackham (House Of Thumbs) expanded his recording project to a full band, starting by enlisting vocalist Aaron Grice (Swimming With Sharks) and drummer Rob Brens (Alarum, A Million Dead Birds Laughing, The Schoenberg Automaton). Before completing the line up, the trio released a film clip for their debut single Shadow Caste, which quickly gained the attention of the metal scene across the country. With the release of their two-track promo, the band also recruited guitarist Ben Boyle (A Million Dead Birds Laughing, Vipassi) and Jim Luxford (Arcane Saints) and the band started accumulating offers from all around the country to perform.

Drakum

Drakum was born at the end of 2009, after more than a year looking for the right members. During the year 2010 we were immersed in the composition of songs and recording our first demo Around The Oak. In 2011 we have been promoting Around The Oak, receiving very good reviews, and started playing live shows. We opened for the Russian band Arkona in their way through Barcelona and won a band contest, Goblin Fest 2011. In 2012 we continued doing gigs and festivals, and participating in more band contests, arriving to semi-finals in W:O:A Metal Battle Spain and winning Devilfest '12. Also started to record our first LP. In 2013 we continued with the recordings of our full-length and, after some member changes, continued with more gigs, for the first time outside our frontiers, participating in MetalDays '13 (Slovenia) and Carpathian Alliance Metal Festival '13 (Ukraine). In 2014 we have released our first album Torches Will Rise Again and the official music video for "Around the Oak" and played in Underwall Fest (Croatia) and again in MetalDays '14 (Slovenia). Plans for 2015: presentation tour of the album and recording a new work.

Troldhaugen

Throwing down more style changes than you can blindly swing a piñata stick at, Troldhaugen are popping craniums worldwide with their one of a kind brand of weird. Elfman-esque orchestrations, Zappa-like technicality, Looney Tune-ish chaos and Skrillex-ian electro-vibes are nothing but par for the course for the wacky 4-piece from Wollongong, Australia.

Troldhaugen have smeared their spicy party grease all over stages both nationally and internationally, touring with the likes of Alestorm, Korpiklaani, Finntroll, Toehider and Brainstorm.

Halestorm - Into The Wild Life

Hard rock is a genre that's a bit on the stale side, to put it mildly, for keeping up with it. I get bored faster than I actually like to admit. I mean, I'm game for some rocking out but there's too little traction for even a casual listen most of the time. However, there's this. I may sound like a broken record on repeat here but if you've missed me saying it before, I'm totally in for female vocals with character; and Halestorm is exactly that, more so when going flat out.
