Dew-Scented - Intermination

Dew-Scented enjoy a position of particular respect and adulation in my metal heart. They were, believe it or not, my very first death metal band, and Inwards remains on heavy rotation as one of the highest pillars in the genre. With album #10, they hit back with a renewed vitality and a violent streak undiminished by conflicting years of experience and personnel changes.

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.

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.

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.
