Majestic

MAJESTIC was formed by Richard Andersson under the name of LAB RAT. He started writing songs with focus on strong melodies and heavy guitar riffs with turbo-charged solo parts. Richard called up some old friends and the line-up was completed with Joel Lindér (drums), Martin Wezowski (bass) and Jonas Blum (vocals). One month later the recordings took place.

The debut album "Abstract Symphony" was recorded during November, December 1998 and was released worldwide by Massacre Records (Europe, except France - released by NTS Records), Toshiba/EMI (Japan) and NEMS (South America, Mexico). This neo-classical metal album received tremendous attention worldwide and achieved excellent reviews (Aardshock, Force, Powerplay, Metallium, Spin City etc.). 7 out of 7 in Metal Hammer (Germany). 9,5 out of 10 in Metal Heart among others.

Dawnless

Early in the year 2003, somewhere at the far end of a valley lost in the Swiss Alps, Dawnless takes shape in the silence of an icy cold January month. The band's name's meaning is related to the area where the members come from which is forsaken by the sun throughout the long winter months.

The will to share its passion for Metal and Hard Rock is beyond any doubt the main goal of theses five close friends. Through time and work Dawnless grows and builds up confidence. New songs appear, gigs follow one another, the crowd, always following, shares the motivation that each member has for what he's doing.

Bands
Frightmare

Frightmare are a sharp and deadly metallic force like no other! The band came together in mid-2002 when "Maniac" Neil Smith asked some friends if they would be interested in forming a new band. With the goal being to create the catchiest, heaviest most original hybrid of old school Death Metal, Grindcore, Punk and Thrash they could. The lyrical influence came from Neil's life-long obsession with late 70's/early 80's slasher films like The Burning, Friday The 13th, Maniac, My Bloody Valentine, Slumber Party Massacre and Sleepaway Camp. That same year the band wrote and recorded their first Slashterpiece appropriately titled Midnight Murder Mania. Midnight Murder Mania was released in the winter of 2003 with rave reviews from both magazines and fans. People noticed right away that these freaks didn't care about the current trends happening in heavy music and that they were all about writing ultra catchy, blood drenched metal. Death Metal, Grindcore and Punkers alike all dug the "Stalk And Thrash Grind" that Frightmare acheived on Midnight Murder Mania. It was a breath of fresh air in the stagnant underground metal scene. It was a reminder of the days when Slayer thrashed, Terrorizer grinded like no other and Impetigo were the kings of gore.

Nibiru - Padmalotus

In recent years, a good few occult theorists and scientists who spend too much time reading Zecharia Sitchin have come to proclaim the inevitable return of Nibiru. If they're talking about the fabled planet, I'd say their arguments are probably shit out of luck, but if they happen to be referring to the band, they're dead on. The Italian trio that is Nibiru are indeed here again on the psychedelia block, and they're striking back with what is perhaps their most powerful album to date.
