Bands
Minotauri

Ari Honkonen, the main character of Finland's metal kings Morningstar, formed Minotauri in the year of 1995 as "therapy" band. The purpose was to play a bit slower metal than Morningstar was. The first line-up had some now-and-then Morningstar members and one rehearsal tape was recorded 1995 (not available).

Nothing really happened until the year 1997, when Viljami Kinnunen came to play drums and a primitivesounding reh.tape titled "Axe Attack" was released (not available). With the help of a bassist friend they recorded another primitive reh.tape titled "Metal Magic" early 1998 and after that, the current bass player Tommi Pakarinen stepped in. The band played their first shows in the summer time of 1998 and a live demo was released (not available).

Bands
Destroyer Of Light

Formed in 2012 from constantly boiling musical cauldron that is Austin, TX, Destroyer of Light has taken a straight forward approach to tempering the disparate and harmonious parts of their influences into a total sum of slow motion tidal heaviness that bows to no altar but that of the riff. With the smoky flavors of hazed out doom and the stomping cadence of rock's heyday, the band both tickles and deafens the ears with the theatrical flashes of Mercyful Fate, the ominous tones of Electric Wizard, and the ferociously feral feedback of a Sleep dirge.

Brymir - Wings Of Fire

Guitarist Joona Björkroth joined Battle Beast in the wake of Anton Kabanen's unceremonious departure, the point at which some fans began to despair that the Finnish sextet had become too poppy, that the "Beast" was gone. Well, first of all, shut up, because the new stuff is good, too [read: better]. But if No More Hollywood Endings is still too Hollywood for you, Brymir can offer five times the Beast.
