Bands
Acid Death

They were characterized by many as the most subversive, controversial and "heretical" Death Metal band that took the Greek scene until 2001. Recordings for them began when the word "discography" sounded very new to the Greek underground. Received numerous enthusiastic reviews from world press and a host of opponent arrows especially in their own home country…

ACID DEATH, is one of the oldest Greek bands that have been active for 12 years, from 1989 to 2001, started from classic Thrash Metal and ended up being the sole representatives (for many at a European level) of Progressive Death Metal up until their disband. Now the band is active again since 2011. Having the assets of an EP, a split LP, three full length CDs and countless live appearances at times where live gigs where worth their weight in gold, they played along with bands such as KREATOR, THE HAUNTED, IMPALED NAZARENE, CHILDREN OF BODOM, MAYHEM, ROTTING CHRIST, CORONER, PESTILENCE, SIX FEET UNDER, they have come full cycle and the years that followed only strengthened their name… Its members were found in other bands of the scene, giving good examples. The "Total Recall" of 2011, almost 10 years after its disband, found ACID DEATH with a revamped lineup, endless inspiration and above all the mood for a lot of hard work.

Bands
Mortalicum

MORTALICUM from the northern parts of Sweden (Sundsvall) was formed in early 2006 by Patrick Backlund, the mastermind behind QUICKSAND DREAM, an obscure epic heavy metal band that started out in late '80s. Initially MORTALICUM was more of a studio project of Patrick who wrote and recorded several songs during the first two years, songs on which he did all the instrumental tracks. During that time Robert Wiklander joined to handle the vocals for the demos, but he actually had done some drumming on the first few jam sessions too. Many different songs were recorded and tried out both during the jams and as demos. Those demos were never released, but since many songs were shared and welcomed on their MySpace page, they felt that they were on the right track towards creating their style of doomy heavy metal mixed with some classic hard rock.

Bands
Nidsang

Swedish black metal band Nidsang was formed in 2004 by the imaginatively named Amducious (vocals/guitar), Korpr (drums), Blodshird (bass), and Hat (guitar), and proceeded to record their first demos inspired by the popular trifecta of Satan, nihilism, and Satan.

Hat was thrown out of the band following 2004's Silent on Their Thrones and 2005's Nidsang demos (no doubt because he called himself Hat!) and Blodshird assumed second guitar duties so that the far more suitably named TerrorGoat could take over the bassist position. This lineup recorded Nidsang's first album, The Mark of Death, which was reminiscent of Marduk and Dark Funeral, and released by Drakkar Productions in the fall of 2007.

Stake

Over a decade ago, four youngsters - barely 12 years old - started making music in a shabby rehearsal room, somewhere in Flanders' Fields, Belgium. The music was loud, hard, and uncompromising. This was the very early beginnings for Stake, under their long-term original band name Steak Number Eight.

At a ridiculous pace, the band kept producing new music and touring pretty relentlessly. Steak Number Eight had grown faster and bigger than they could have ever imagined: they were selling out Belgium's biggest venues, played every serious rock festival across mainland Europe, and had been on the road supporting the likes of Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Deftones.

Left Hand Solution

Being a unique band, this four-piece band takes influences from all kinds of music that have metal connected to its name and makes a very own special blend of it all.

Metal De Facto

Esa Orjatsalo, who used to play in the classic Finnish power metal band Dreamtale, had been composing music on his chest of drawers with the idea of some day making a Rome-themed album. He met another power metal enthusiast, bassist Sami Hinkka while being a guitar tech for Sami's folk metal band, Ensiferum.

During the long van rides across Finland from gig to gig, these guys had many hours to talk which is where it all started. The idea of making just one theme album expanded to a totally new band. The idea was that the music would be, to put it modestly, the best power/heavy metal ever made, and every album would have be themed after a certain country's/area's history and mythology. The point was not to be "Wikipedia-metal", but contribute a new angle to the ancient stories and myths.
