Tristitia

Tristitia was formed back in late '92 by guitarist Luis B. Galvez. His devotion for Doom Metal and sorrowful melodies brought him to form the band with Death/Gothic style singer Thomas Karlsson and Harri Juvonen on bass. They recorded their first demo in april '93 entitled "Winds of Sacrifice". In january '94 they released their second demo "Reminiscences of the Mourner". The receiving of this demo was even better than "Winds of Sacrifice" and gave Tristitia a record deal with the French label Holy Records. In march '95 now with Bruno Nilsson behind the drums, Thomas on vocals and Luis playing all guitars, bass and keyboards, Tristitia released their first CD album "One with Darkness". Summer '96 they recorded their second album "Crucidiction" wich was released december '96. Tristitia's third album "The Last Grief" brought the band a new atmospheric Dark Doom Heavy Metal singing style with session singer Rickard Bengtsson from the Swedish band Last Tribe and with mixed doom riffs/classical guitar parts Tristitia found a new path beyond the labyrinth of Darkness. At the fall 2002 the band was ready for their 4th album and entered Darkside Studios in their hometown Halmstad to record their latest cd "Garden of Darkness" with Death style vocalist Stefan Persson, wich to be the darkest, most sorrowful and well produced of all Tristitia's releases.

Major Denial

MAJOR DENIAL is a melodic-progressive metal project from Greece founded by Nektarios Ntagkas and Ahilleas Diamantis in the summer of 2013.

Nektarios started writing songs in a short period of time and that period he contacted Mark Zonder (Warlord, ex. fates Warning) to play the drums on the first song (No Sunrise). He contacted also Yannis Papadopoulos (Wardrum, Beast In Black, ex. Until Rain) to sing the song. On February 2014 they presented the first lyric video for the song, followed by a second lyric video (Never Neverland) on April 2014.

Internal Bleeding

After the breakup of his original band Autumn Reign, guitarist Chris Pervelis went on to found the first INTERNAL BLEEDING lineup in early 1991. That winter, a case of 300 blank tapes were "found" at a local university and provided the impetus to set up a 4-track recorder and record their first demo — the infamous One Dollar Demo. It was a crude recording, but underneath all the noise and hiss lay the seeds of a new genre of death metal.

In the winter of 1992, the band released their now classic Invocation of Evil demo. This recording got them closer to their goal of creating crushing death metal with grooves and hooks that stayed with the listener long after the stop button was hit. Critics and fans responded, and Invocation of Evil was eventually released on Wild Rags Records selling more than 5000 copies — the label's highest selling CD at the time. Relentless self-financed touring and promotion followed.

Adamantra

The idea of forming Adamantra saw the daylight about a decade ago in Helsinki (Finland), when bass player
Jukka Hoffrén started to record some of his tunes and ideas on a friends computer. As the songs were given their
final shape during the process of preproduction, it was time to form a band to have the opportunity for live
performances.

Despite of placing numerous of ads in several music magazines and on different websites, a really fitting line-up
was somewhat difficult to create. However the real solution was closer than expected. Tuomas Nieminen, Mikko

Ram

RAM was created back in '99 by Harry Granroth, who wanted to form a real heavy metal band; he was sick of the misinterpretation of metal that ruled the scene back then and had a pile of material that he wanted to bring to life. He soon found Daniel Johansson, a young but experienced and very talented guitar player who welded a traditional metal guitar style. The two started working on some of Harry's earlier material and began to write new songs. After a long and tiresome search, Harry then found Oscar Carlquist; a powerful heavy metal vocalist with a mutual hatred for the current metal scene. Oscar quickly became involved in the song writing process and quickly crafted interesting lyrics to accompany the music. The backbone of RAM was formed. Oscar brought in drummer Morgan Pettersson, one of the few drummers left who still played the 70/80's hard and heavy drumming style. They then recruited the legendary Leif Larsson, an icon in Gothenburg metal as he had previously been a member of "Frozen Eyes".

The new material supported by a music video for the title song and intensive live activities gained success and the band became one of the best power metal acts in the country.

Wreck Of The Hesperus

WOTH malformed in the sublime, barren month of January 2004 with a unified goal to create utterly extreme, horribly heavy, sewage laden - manky as be fucked filthy anti-music that sounds like its rotting apart. After much jammage we recorded our first four track demo titled 'Terminal Dirge' in June. This debut release was very well received by the underground and awarded album of the month on metalireland.com as well as getting an 8.5 mark in Terrorizer magazine. A year later after a heap more jammage we recorded our second demo 'Eulogy for the Sewer Dwellers' which is slower, darker and mankier and was not as well received. We were amused. This also achieved an 8.5 mark in Terrorizer magazine.

Helmet

Some history: In 1989, Page Hamilton co-founded the New York-based Helmet, fusing Zeppelinesque riffing with a vehement post-hardcore precision, augmented by dense chords and offbeat time signatures based in Hamilton's formal jazz training. The combination was that rarest of visionary creations-it was successful in its own time. After their 1990 debut album Strap It On (on revered indie label Amphetamine Reptile), Helmet unleashed the major label Meantime (1992), a widely acclaimed album that earned a Grammy nomination, went gold, and launched a thousand other bands. Betty followed in 1994, successfully branching out from the band's ferocious attack and into more varied musical waters. (In 2010, Helmet issued via their website a digital-only deluxe version of Betty that includes 14 original album tracks plus five bonus tracks.) Another acclaimed album Aftertaste followed in 1997 and after nine years and thousands of shows, Helmet called it a day in 1998.
