The Drowning

The Drowning are not just a general metal based band, with the members all having there own influences, the bands inspiration has come from the darker ambient side of music with the likes of the above bands influence being heard in many of the The Drowning's songs.

The band have also incorporated the use of acoustic guitars and keyboard effects to create the darker edged atmosphere in most of The Drowning's tracks which makes them hard to compare with bands from the same genre.

The heavier side of The Drowning comes from many of the dark, death, black metal band genres past and present which have a strong influence on many of the band members.

Gjenferdsel

2002:
In year 2002, Iudex had some visions for an upcoming black metal band. He decided to put his ideas into existence, and named it GJENFERDSEL. The band was supposed to be built on strong ideologies, individualism, and to have its root in the Norwegian nature and origin.

2003:
He got in contact with Iratus, which handled the drums. The first song was created, and the potential and ambitions made the duo continue rehearsing

2004:
In 2004, the conceptual demo "Det kom et skip til Björgvin..." was released. The demo was based upon the black plague, how it arrived in Norway, and how the conditions in Norway were back in 1349. The response on the demo was mostly positive, especially outside the nordic countries the response was overwhelming. Even now, the demo is heavily requested as it is out of stock, and very hard to find.

Coven 13

The Coven 13 story began on a cold dreary day in Detroit back in the late winter months of early 1985. Bassist Roger Cyrkiel had returned from Hollywood, CA. after his departure from Trial (Kory Klarke & Kevin Quinn). Searching for a new band, he first sought a guitarist that could fit the sound that would match what he was looking for. After many auditions and discussions, longtime friend and guitarist, Richie Karacynski, (whom Roger originally wanted to fill the position) was busy with his own band, had recommended guitarist Todd Kreda for the slot. Roger placed an ad in Detroit's Metro Times musicians classified seeking Todd. Todd's father read the ad and brought it to his attention. Todd contacted Roger, and that was the beginning of the formation.

FEJD

FEJD formed in 2001 through a fusion of the folk music duo Rimmerfors and three members of the metal band Pathos. Rimmerfors played folk music with medieval undertones, performing on contemporary instruments, and together with their childhood friends of Pathos, the transformed into a refined band with the best of both worlds - the weight of heavy metal in symbiosis with the typical melodic language and sadness of the nordic folk music.

The brothers interest in swedish medieval folk music started back in 1995, commenced by music studying and the feeling of wanting to explore new musical ground and try something new. The brothers musical background, as well as their band mates, has its roots in heavy metal music, growing up listening to acts as Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate and Bathory. Inspiration is also drawn from like-minded bands such as Garmarna and Hedningarna.

Raging Speedhorn

Raging Speedhorn were formed in 1998 from the merging of the bands Soulcellar and Box. Through a 'frightening' stage presence and minor re-working of riffs reminiscent of Iron Monkey, the band quickly established itself as a major presence within the UK's metal scene.

Raging Speedhorn features two vocalists, a style largely inspired by the UK hardcore band Hard To Swallow, (which featured Bloody Kev who would join Raging Speedhorn as their second vocalist after the departure of Frank Regan in 2005). The band's first single, "Thumper" (produced by industrial veteran, Marc Heal) was released in 2000 to significant critical acclaim. In 2001 they charted in the UK Singles Chart with The Gush. They toured relentlessly over the following years supporting bands such as Will Haven, Amen, Biohazard, Ministry, Slipknot and Rammstein. They toured across the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA and appeared at many festivals including playing the main stage at Ozzfest, Reading, Damnation and Download on 3 occasions.

Monuments

The day has finally come for Monuments. The line up is complete, their debut album Gnosis is ready to be unleashed and the London-based progroove metal quintet has assembled their arsenal ready to challenge the way you look at the world.

Formed in the UK by guitarist John Browne from the ashes of the pioneering technical groove metallers, Fellsilent (who also featured Acle Kahney of Tesseract in its ranks), Monuments starts somewhat were Fellsilent left off. Many consider Fellsilent ahead of its time, one of founders of the current new wave of UK tech metal. If SikTh were the godfathers, Fellsilent was that crazy cousin always tinkering around with something in the basement. In the years following that band's demise, Browne honed his craft, both as a songwriter and producer and has brought Monuments out of the underground, prepped and ready for the masses.

Ignominious Incarceration

Ignominious Incarceration was formed in summer 2006, with the focus of creating a technical, melodic band.

Tysondog

From the North East of England, the band were born from another outfit, who went under the odd name Orchrist in the early 1980s. This lot had a line-up that included the core of Alan Hunter on vocals, Kev Wynn (bass) and Paul Burdis (guitar). These three soon split from the rest to start Tysondog - named after a pet dog called Tyson! - going through a succession of drummers (including one Kev Hunter, brother of Raven's Rob), before settling on Peter Reeve.

The first proper line-up quickly landed a deal with local label Neat (based in Wallsend, the same town where Tysondog were based... coincidence?), having bumped into one of the company's execs in a car park and given him a live tape (true!), and recorded their first single, 'Eat The Rich', in mid -'83, with Hunter by now on vocals and guitar. However, before this was released the 'Dog had expanded to a five-piece, with the addition of one Clutch Carruthers on vocals. He made his recording debut on that single's B-side, 'Dead Meat' - and showed he could roar with the best.

Desolation Angels

Desolation Angels was formed in early 1981 by childhood friends and twin guitarists Robin Brancher and Keith Sharp.
We recruited drummer John Graham from our previous band to pursue a heavier direction, soon to be joined by another old school friend Joe Larner on bass. An ad was placed in Melody Maker for a vocalist and the line-up was completed when Dave Wall auditioned. Being based in the East End of London, we set about writing, rehearsing and building up a local following. During 1981 we put together a couple of rough demos but at that time our main passion was playing live. We soon built up a reputation as a live act on the pub and club circuit. In those days we spent more money putting on a decent show with a huge P.A and lights, than we received from playing.
