Betzefer

After releasing two independent EPs and following the signing of a record deal for their self-produced debut album with Roadrunner Records, BETZEFER established their status as Israel's biggest and most successful metal band and set on a long episode of touring - playing, among others, as main support for the likes of Soulfly and Lamb of God in their European tours. Their immediate success with the new foreign crowds quickly put them on the main stages of the big summer festivals. Back in Israel, the band grew even stronger and started crossing into mainstream awareness, headlining the rock stages of the biggest Israeli festivals and constantly earning more and more attention from the local media.

Trees Of Eternity

The plan was to to feature Aleah's vocals on part of the song already prepared by Juha, but when they instead began to experiment with a vocal line Aleah had written for the occasion the session quickly headed off in a new direction and the project took on a life of its own. The result was the song "My Requiem"

Cryptic Warning

The band was formed in the summer of 2000 in Boston, MA under the name Cryptic Warning. It is an old-school thrash metal band with a love for brutal, technical death metal.

2005 marked the release of Cryptic Warning's debut full-length CD Sanity's Aberration. Combining shredding solos, lightning-fast riffs and unrelenting intensity, Sanity's Aberration is the best representation of what Cryptic Warning was all about.

In June of 2006, the band decided to change it's name from Cryptic Warning to Revocation. During an interview with Davidson, when asked about the name change, he commented: "I think, looking a little deeper into it, we made a lot of mistakes with Cryptic Warning. We were younger and didn't really know what we were doing, so Revocation was us starting fresh with a clean slate and revoking our past mistakes."

The Steve Grimmett Band

Steve Grimmett has a history that is nothing short of incredible, having what is widely regarded as one of the most powerful and original voices in rock and metal. As vocalist with the legendary Grim Reaper, Steve accomplished major success during the '80s with three highly acclaimed studio albums, along with single releases, MTV airplay, and extensive touring in the United States. Grim Reaper videos can often still be seen on some of the major music channels. Afterwords, Steve spent a brief period with Onslaught and again enjoyed commercial success, including a single that charted in the UK. More recently Steve's success came in the form of Lionsheart, a powerful melodic metal band whose debut album reached number one in the mainstream Japanese charts.

Steve Grimmett's Grim Reaper

Led by the inspired guitar work of Nick Bowcott and the powerful lungs of Steve Grimmett, Grim Reaper's tough, raw, but melodically charged music embodied British heavy metal's most popular devices (and clichés) throughout the mid-'80s. The fact that Grim Reaper was capable of combining the above attributes so competently, yet truly excelled at none of them resulted in an exceedingly swift "rags to glory and back to rags" story, which somehow was as surprising as it was strangely fitting. Add to this a far from attractive visual aesthetic (i.e., they were four crusty English dudes with handlebar moustaches, bad hair, and even worse teeth) and it was clear Grim Reaper was doomed to enjoy a limited afterlife in the newly established MTV regime.

Wretch

The Gates of Slumber was a Doom metal outfit from Indianapolis which achieved it's legendary status through working hard and passionately. It started as Karl Simon's project somewhere about 1998, but the demo 'Sabbath Witch' was already recorded with a first full lineup, though not released until 2002. The Gates of Slumber lineup had several changes in the beginning; in spite of this, Karl always continued his work as the band's mastermind. Bass guitarist Jason McCash and drummer Iron Bob Fouts came to be integral parts of this, enhancing The Gates of Slumber with their skills and experience.

Philadelphia

A little over 30 years ago, in the Deep South of north Louisiana, there was a Christian street outreach group called Philadelphia (named after the faithful church in Revelations). It also included a band since some of the key members grew up playing rock 'n roll. The band took the same name, and began to play gigs all over the ArkLaTex region.

Crowds were small at first but enthusiastic. After a few lineup changes, Philly settled into a hard rocking trio, with Brian Clark on bass & vocals, drummer Brian Martini and guitarist Phil Scholling. Some people, especially some established church folk, thought the band rocked way too hard to be playing essentially Christian music. They thought rock was the devil's music, and couldn't be 'redeemed'. The boys in the band disagreed, and since they were playing nearly exclusively to younger crowds, it was a familiar language to both. Philly found no music in and of itself evil, simply the intent of it; and using rock as a tool to communicate....communicate they did!

Scott Mosher

Scott Mosher released his first CD in 1996, entitled "Ambient Earth". This CD cemented the sonic foundation of his future CD releases, as it was a pure electronic all instrumental release of new-age and rock-inspired soundscapes, something along the lines of TANGERINE DREAM and Jan Hammer. "Virtuality" followed in 2001, which was a epic evolution from his past works. With "Virtuality", Scott has a masterwork fusion CD of progressive rock, heavy metal, ambient and trance techno music, not the least of which, half the songs featured the vocal talents of Todd Corsa. The third CD, "Inferno", was issued in 2004, and took the style established on "Virtuality" to another level, meshing the crushing guitar sounds of contemporary metal, the pop sensibilities of modern rock, and the atmospheres of current electronic music, into a 60 minute opus of music over matter. With a new CD due in the latter part of 2005, Scott continues to synthesize various forms of modern music into a unique and stylized conceptualized vision

Aftershok

Aftershok is a four-piece classic metal band that showcases aggressive guitars and powerful, melodic vocals. Their sound is firmly grounded in the best traditions of classic metal and hard rock, but through their commitment to strong songwriting and musicianship they have forged a style that is all their own.

Aftershok began in the summer of 1996 as a collaboration between vocalist Vic Hix and guitarist George Mihalovich. Vic and George M quickly realized that they shared the same vision for a classic metal/melodic hard rock band, and made the decision to concentrate on developing the project until they found just the right individuals to solidify the line-up. Fast-forward a few years; veteran drummer George B. came aboard in late 1999, and bassist Nick G. joined in early 2000. The band was complete, and after months of intense rehearsal, Aftershok began to perform in late 2000.

Mary-Ann

To/Die/For is band from Kouvola, Finland-based quintet originally began life as the oddly titled Mary-Ann. They released a few self-financed mini CDs under this moniker, which helped them secure a deal with Finland's Spinefarm Records. After a slight line-up and name change, they released All Eternity (their debut album) in 1999. Immediately seeing the potential and appeal for gothic rock fans, Nuclear Blast quickly licensed the record for European territories outside of Finland.
