Wishdoom

WISHDOOM is an Epic/Doom/Heavy metal band hailing from Thessaloniki (northern Greece). A primary form of the band was created in the beginning of 2007 by George Samarithan G. (guitars) and Christos Patses (bass guitar). A year after Panagiotis Botis (drums) entered the band to fill the starting line-up. Three months later, in June 2008 the band under the name WISHDOOM entered the studio to record their first demo called "Up The Hammers". During the recordings, several vocalists were tested until Chris A.D. Paschalidis (member of ANNO DOMINI ex-POISONED HENNA) was chosen to do the vocals as a guest musician. The outcome was a passionate epic/doom elegy, in the vein of early MANOWAR, WARLORD, MANILLA ROAD, DOOMSWORD, OMEN and other great '80s bands. With music and vocals matching perfectly, Chris fully entered the band. Fanzines and webzines gave "Up The Hammers" excellent reviews and the band made its great first steps. In February 2009 WISHDOOM performed live for the first time along with MARAUDER and STORRMBRINGER in Thessaloniki.

Dark Castle

Currently based in St. Augustine, Florida, drummer/vocalist Rob Shaffer and guitarist/vocalist Stevie Floyd met in 2005 and bonded over a shared musical vision (and love for Death). They immediately began writing the music that would, over time, form the skeleton of their first release. Heavily inspired by spirituality, nature and the flow of creation and life itself, DARK CASTLE incorporate multicultural scales (particularly Hungarian and Japanese) and the kind of innovative time signatures that doom metal has always yearned for to create something new, exciting but always conscious of its bloody roots and the all-important groove.

Bell Witch - Four Phantoms

Funeral doom has always struck me as a very hit or miss style of music. You either get albums from bands that are totally monumental, crushing, and epic, or ones that somehow just can't figure out the trick and are instead boring, overly plodding, and uninspired, with very little to be found in between these extremes. Four Phantoms, the sophomore effort from the American Bell Witch, is a curious release in this regard, one that first appears to be in that second area, but begins to move to the first as its grandiosity is slowly revealed.
