Scythian

Scythian formed in 2004 - a reaction to the insufferable music of their times. Sworn against the exaltation of "worship-bands" and copy-artists, they took up arms to obliterate the criminal sounds of the UK metal scene - and stamp them into the earth.

Battling with self-contradiction, the band combined its early musical influences to establish an identity that would set them apart from the herd. Though it reeked of Bathory, Sodom and Morbid Angel, the result was one of primitive individualism: Suffering to the Conquered a six-track demo in 2007 would earn the band rave reviews and a series of gig appearances which would take them from London to Crimea, Ukraine - the birthplace of their namesake.

SinHeresY

SinHeresY rose officially in May 2009 in Trieste when the bassist Davide Sportiello met the guitarist Lorenzo Pasutto and the Friulian singer Cecilia Petrini.

Narrow House

The first name of the band was Funestum, and it was started in Kiev in 2008, being the first band to introduce atmospheric funeral doom in Ukraine. Under this name the band took part in a number of shows sharing stage with Cemetery Of Scream, Inferno, and Apostate, and releasing an EP called The Gates Of Eon, which is available online.

In 2009 the band changed its name to Narrow House, continuing its funeral doom legacy and taking part in multiple Ukrainian doom fests, playing with Skepticism, Mournful Gust, Stoned Jesus, and Mozergush. All live performances by Narrow House were supported with psychological visuals and ambient music, which merges all songs into one solid and depressive structure. The original lineup of Narrow House was:

Bands
Cock And Ball Torture

Cock And Ball Torture was founded back in early 1997 by those three lads who still keep the wheel turning after more than 15 years in existence. Shortly after the foundation the band already recorded the first songs which were a teaser of what was to come the following years: CBT became one of the forerunners of goregrind. Influenced in the beginning by bands like GUT, Hemdale, and others, the band soon developed their very unique style of groovy grind.

After great response in the worldwide underground scene from day one, the band made several EPs and split releases before releasing the first full-length. Opus(sy)VI. In support of the album CBT played several shows in their home country as well as the first European gigs in the Netherlands, Czech Republic, France and Great Britain, culminating in an appearance on the infamous Ohio Death Fest in the USA.

Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start A War

It seems a little too easy picking on a band like Fozzy. The soapbox-contrarian part of me wants to love this album out of spite...But I just can't do it. Do You Wanna Start A War? is about as bland as it gets.

Stormnatt - Omega Therion

Now, after 5 years, Stormnatt has released their third album since their beginnings back in 2000. Almost the same gap was already put between the first two albums and to be perfectly honest, maybe a couple of extra years wouldn't have hurt. Now, there are actually some positive factors and potential here, but after two albums you might expect a bit more.
