DarkRise

DarkRise was founded by four musicians coming from Lausanne and its outskirts (Switzerland) in 1998. After two years of composition and practice of the stage, they decided to record their first demo. "Slaves Of Death" came out in May 2000, allowing the group to play live with Fleshcrawl and Yattering.

In 2003, the group recorded his first full length album, "Massive Retaliation", a pure Death Metal album that was released by the French label Deadsun Records.

In 2005, after some concerts abroad, the band recorded his second album. "Unbeliever" was also released by Deadsun Records in 2006 and was directly followed by an European Tour with Impaled Nazarene. This experience enabled the group to progress and become more professional. It was also an opportunity to gain visibility and make some networking throughout Europe. At the end of 2006 and in 2007, DarkRise did perform again in Europe.

Décembre Noir

The Foundation of a band is always based on someone´s impulse to create something satisfying the own ambition - to find the point of contact with the own musical sense.
To look into their own preference to music and to the own thoughts by playing their instruments, Daniel (dr.) and Sebastian (gt.) decided to coact in making music in the year 2008.

The first songs were formed aimlessly and without a clear style. Should this stay a two-man-project and should the songs be only recorded on cd? Or Should they form a band? YES was the answer to the second question and it was the right one. From this time on Marcel (gt.), Mike (bs.) and last but not least Lars (vc.) framed the new character impressing the songs of Decembre Noir - The band was born.

Zhrine

ZHRINE rose from the fertile extreme metal breeding grounds of Kópavogur, Iceland in 2008, and soon began turning heads and snapping necks in the domestic scene with their brutal death metal style.

Through years of aural refinement of their more brutal tendencies into a crushing, yet ethereal, soundscape of oppressive blackened death, ZHRINE soon outgrew their early moniker of GONE POSTAL, with which they had started infecting eardrums worldwide with multiple performances at the Eistnaflug Festival, Iceland Airwaves Festival, and later, with a hard fought for and very successful appearance at the Wacken Metal Battle in Germany.

Figure Four

Figure Four can plainly be described in one word: brutal. Seasoned warriors of the hardcore arena, they emerge with violent intensity and a sound that is downright imposing.

Figure Four has wasted no time in their four-year existence. Two full length releases and near constant touring is quickly paying off. With the launch of their third assault, "Suffering the Loss", the band is primed and focused as become one of the big names in this cut throat genre where only the very best see daylight, let alone survive. For Figure Four, the incessant battle has already taken them further than they'd ever imagined, and the scars are merely a trophy. International tours from Brazil to Seattle and everywhere in between, sharing the stage with the likes of Hatebreed, Sick Of It All and others, Figure Four's fierce work ethic has won them a name and spawned a rampant following.

Crimson Sun

Known for their gripping live performances and catchy sounds and melodies, Crimson Sun has reached a completely new level with their currently released new songs. The band aims to find new dimensions and different sounds for every song. The new songs are more straightforward and heavier than before but the band has still not forgotten their versatility. Every song has its own story, in which the listener can relate to through the atmosphere created by the sounds and profound lyrics.

Crimson Sun was founded in 2001 in Hamina by Joni Junnila (guitars) and Teemu Hankanen (vocals & guitars). Later Tomi Paronen (drums) and Jukka Jauhiainen (bass) joined the band, and the first gigs were made in 2003 under the name "Lucretia". After some line-up changes in 2004 the guitarist Joni and Jonne Taavitsainen, who was at the time playing drums in the band, decided that the band's aims were higher than playing just as a hobby. In 2005 the band performed as a supporting act for Pelle Miljoona in Hamina under the name "Cryptic". At that time the band was searching for a new singer and after many candidates, Sini Hanttu joined the band. The first gig with a new line up was in the winter 2005 in a band competition at "Seukkarit" and the band shared the first place in the audience voting.
