Vindicator

Cleveland, Ohio... A town where sports come to die and metal comes to live. A city that has seen it's share of metal titans by their own rights. Destructor, Nunslaughter, Purgatory, Midnight, Soulless, Black Death and many more. In two thousand five the city would give birth to another bastard of speed and aggression... Vindicator would tear down the walls and burn the scene to the ground. Quickly earning respect from the old guard and garnering new fans with every show, the band quickly propelled to the forefront of the thrash resurgence with acts like Warbringer, Merciless Death, and Bonded By Blood.

Bands
ShadowPlay

Drawing on the diverse musical influences of each member, ShadowPlay features the ethereal vocals of Alitia soaring above a brooding and romantic meld of metal, goth and electronica.

ShadowPlay's goal is to produce music that moves people: songs that are emotive and inspiring; songs that provoke thought and reflection; and, songs that you simply want to headbang or dance to.

Shortly after its formation, ShadowPlay moved to Manchester, UK in 2003. For various reasons, the band began returning separately to Perth from 2005. In 2007, ShadowPlay released its debut self-titled album.

Kall - Brand

Brand is my first encounter with Kall; however, I am familiar with the predecessor to this group, Lifelover (or at least their record Dekadens), and Brand feels like the sound of that record stretched out and blended with psychedelia.
