Bands
Ruthless

Ruthless. The word in itself means "without mercy". Formed in 1982 by vocalist Sammy D., and guitarist Kenny McGee. The original lineup included Jack Black (bass), Todd Billings (drums) and Roland Schroader (guitar). After playing local clubs for a while, the band built a very large and loyal following. Together with Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Fates Warning, W.A.S.P.) producing and engineering, Ruthless put out the now classic "Metal Without Mercy" MLP on the Iron Works label. After making a couple of lineup changes with Todd Billings and Roland Schroader leaving the band, and adding drummer Bryant Scott and guitarist Steven Yeager, the band signed with new label Axe Killer Records, and went into the studio with Ethan James. The band emerged with the highly acclaimed "Discipline Of Steel" LP. Over the years, the band has shared the stage with Heavy Metal monsters such as Slayer, Metal Church, Accept, Saxon, Dark Angel, Armored Saint, Lizzy Borden and Exodus, just to name a few. Due to musical differences, the band disbanded in 1989

Slash's Snakepit

At the end of the summer of 1994, while Guns N' Roses went under a long hiatus, Slash decided to use the demos rejected by Axl to release a solo album. Along with Matt Sorum, Gilby Clarke and Mike Inez (bassist of Alice In Chains), the band went under the temporary name of SVO Snakepit: Slash's Very Own Snakepit. After auditioning around forty singers, a friend of Gilby recommended Eric Dover, former guitarist of Jellyfish, who got immediately hired for lead vocals.

Then, things went on pretty fast: the band wrote lyrics and recorded seventeen tracks in less than a month with Mike Clink as producer. It's Five O'Clock Somewhere was released on February 14th of 1995 and the name Slash's Snakepit definitively adopted to support fourteen tracks of heavy and pure rock. Two music videos were shot for "Beggars And Hangers-On" and "Good To Be Alive", and the album sold a million copies.

Bands
Sumerlands

Formed by an all-star cast of scene veterans, heavy metal force Sumerlands burst out of the gates with a fully-formed sound on their Guardian demo in 2014.

The band's sound is one that calls to mind the most learned heavy metal ancestors and the most forward-thinking newcomers: one that sounds old but it feels new. In its short existence, the band has already garnered widespread praise from the likes of Sputnik Music, No Clean Singing and Pitchfork, the latter of which stated that "Sumerlands sound like Cirith Ungol and every lost 80's American power metal band on steroids of steel, getting swole and flexing their might."

De Arma

DE ARMA took concrete shape in 2009, three years after a ghostly vague idea had started to haunt Andreas Pettersson and inspired him to write melancholic music with strong heartening undertones. Soon it became clear to Pettersson that his new band would make other music backgrounds accessible than his black metal and folk endeavors. Drummer Johan Marklund joined and a first EP was recorded, released as split album with UK based metal band Fen, entitled "Towards The Shores Of The End" (Nordvis 2011). DE ARMA's music has a.o. been described as "of melancholic gracefulness with the power to engross" (musikreviews.de) and provoked statements like "it's rare that you hear music so beautiful, especially from the extreme metal end of the spectrum" (seaoftranquillity.org). The debut album "Lost, Alien & Forlorn" was recorded with the help of Frank Allain from Fen, DE ARMA now diving deeper into seven elaborate and personal, nevertheless unhamperedly erupting visions of obsessive feelings and ruminations. This is the soundtrack for the final days when you sit lonely in your room, the bleak light of the atomic winter crawling through the sallow window, watching the walls come down...

Sumerlands - Sumerlands

This isn't tight jeans, big hair, "coke off a stripper's ass" heavy metal. But it'll blow your mind in the same way without you really realizing quite what's happening. No, this is "walk softly and carry a big stick" heavy metal.
