Bonjour Tristesse

Formed in Germany in the winter of 2008, Bonjour Tristesse is a band that plays a style of black metal that is considered to be of the depressive ilk.

Focusing on the oppressing everyday life in capitalist societies, the neverending struggle for freedom, and the crisis between civilization and the environment, Bonjour Tristesse weaves a symphony of sadness, alienation and inner emptiness with a sense of strength that arises from unabashed resilience and standing alone in the face of adversity.
Furthermore the band supports a vegan straight edge lifestyle.

Amebix

Amebix, now recognized as one of the most influential ponderous bands ever, was born in England during the summer of 1978.

Opting for the name Amebix, the band released a track from the demo called "University Challenged" on the first edition of the obscure compilation series "Bullshit Detector".

Poets Of The Fall

Finnish rockers Poets of the Fall - singer Marko, guitarist Olli and keyboardist Captain - started out their musical adventure from scratch in 2003. Marko sold everything he had to invest in pursuing the love of his life, music, with his buddies Olli and Captain. He moved into his folks' basement, when he couldn't keep a place of his own any longer. The guys then built a little studio of their own in Captain's living room for the recording and producing sessions, and kept an office in Olli's beat up old car. The result of the recording sessions was a blend of pop, rock, metal and industrial sounds. Later the guys were joined by guitarist Jaska, bassist Jani and drummer Jari.

Albert Bell's Sacro Sanctus

Albert Bell's Sacro Sanctus is a new solo project from the song-writing and lyrical pen of Albert Bell, renowned for his work with both Forsaken and Nomad Son - two firmly established doom metal bands that have etched Malta as a bastion for quality heavy doom metal in the hearts of doom metalheads worldwide. "Deus Volt" - the debut album from (Albert Bell's) Sacro Sanctus captures and pays tribute to the myriad influences that have inspired Albert's thirty year trajectory in heavy metal (both as a die-hard fan and musician), from the formative influences of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Venom and Celtic Frost to Bell's passion and love for classic doom metal as epitomised by Nemesis, Candlemass, Trouble and Saint Vitus. On "Deus Volt" one can also trace nods to epic metal and the dark, arcane soundscapes typical of the Italian and Hellenic metal scenes that Bell has always felt strong affinity to, reflective of the influences of Mediterranean culture on the music and thematic concepts that he has and continues to explore in his musical forays.

Wombbath

The year was 1988. Richard, Roger and Tobias were gathered to do nothing in Tobias' boy's room when the idea to form a band was hatched. Soon after this they got in contact with the local music center where they signed up under the name The Shadows. There they got a great music teacher that was also a drummer. Unfortunately he was drafted for military service and the chemistry between the band and their new teacher was far from great, which led them to leave. They continued on their own, playing their own material mixed with covers of different rock bands. As they progressed the music chosen became harder and harder and before long the band was totally into the quickly growing music genres trash metal and death metal. One of the favorite bands was Death and the popular records Leprosy and Spiritual Healing. The more they developed, the more the urge to grow into a fully fleshed band with a singer and a lead guitarist grew. They asked their classmate Thomas Lindfors to try out for the spot as a singer and it turned out to be a stroke of genius. What a Voice he developed! With him in the spot of the singer the next mission was to try to find a good lead guitarist. Tobias knew Håkan since a few years back when they had 'played' together and hence they asked him to come to the garage and listen to them. It was love at first sight! When Thomas and Håkan joined, the band was more or less nameless. After some brainstorming they became Seizure. Now that they had become a proper band they managed to get a new rehearsal room within their school's buildings. The first song, The Grave, was written (recorded only at two live gigs, one in 1992 and the other at the reunion in 2005). But the song has become memorable to the members due to something that happened during rehersal. "This funny thing happened once this song finally was completed during a rehearsal and we were about to play it through in a completed form: Thomas' ampli- fier broke. Still we put a cassette into the cassette player and pushed on Rec and started playing, nothing strange about that, but Thomas was on the floor, growl- ing straight into the cassette player's microphone. Hahaha." Soon after this the managed to get yet a new rehearsal room that gave them more freedom to rehearse whenever they wanted. They more or less lived there; all free time was spent behind their instruments. They managed to write four songs that they were satisfied with until the first of February 1991 when they had their first gig. It was nervousness with a capital N! But the gig went well and Seizure -we were now the cool kids. During the following year they rehearsed intensely and started talking about a name change. A friend of the band had come up with a cool name, 'Wombbath' (a combination of the words womb and bath), after some discussions they agreed that it felt completely right and took it. In January 1992 they entered studio Gamble to record the demo Brutal Mights. It should really have been recorded at studio Sunlight, but the day before the mixer board caught fire. The news of the fire had saddened the band, but maybe there was a reason behind that they had to find another studio, in this case previous mentioned Gamble. Because, after it had been recorded and the band had spent countless hours on copying and sending of the demo, they immediately got a positive response. The record companies Thrash and Infest Records both showed interest and the two companies made a cooperation about Wombbath (as far as is known). Wombbath signed a contract for a 7" ep and one full length CD. So in June they entered Studio Skyline to record the 7" ep Several Shapes which represents the heavier, more gory and guttural side of Wombbath. It got a warm welcome from both critics and listeners and Wombbath was of course very happy with the record as well. The same fall, 1992, they once again entered Studio Skyline, this time to record the full length album; Internal Caustic Torments. On it you can hear that their main influences was Napalm Death, Benediction etc. The album was recorded in 7 days, e.g. 60 hours (and McDonalds twice per day). The release was in March 1993 and also this record was well received by critics and listeners and this seems to be the case even to this day! They made some gigs after the release, but not many enough. The composing continued as usual but in 1994 they, like many other metal bands during this time ended up in a bit of a identity crisis and the music became more and more 'non death metal. Not many bands survived this period of creative confusion. They recorded a promo-demo that was sent out to different record labels just to see what happened and Napalm Records wanted to release it as a CD immediately so that was what happened. It was released Lavatory. It was the last thing that Wombbath did and maybe the one thing that they shouldn't have done. With that record Wombbath drew its last breath and the rest is not of importance for this.
