Light The Torch

You will be the Death of me with Francesco Artusato I was born and raised in Italy. I moved to America to study at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated in Film Scoring. I moved to Los Angeles in 2007, and I started playing with different bands. I joined and played with All Shall…

Eternity’s End

Embers Of War with Christian Muenzner Embers Of War is our third album and, in my opinion, the album where we truly cemented our unique style. It is a little bit closer to classic 80s German, US speed and heavy metal than the first two albums, and we completely dialled back the more symphonic elements…

Thief

The 16 Deaths of My Master with Dylan Neal ‘The 16 Deaths of My Master’ was written between 2019-2021. It’s gloomy, menacing and haunting and primarily is written around sampled choral/sacred chants from across the world and electronic hardware. I write everything myself, so the creative process is 99% me in my studio with my…

The Crown

Royal Destroyer with Marko Tervonen  It’s a natural progression from the previous album Cobra Speed Venom. It has that same intensity and aggression but in a better and more luxurious package. This lineup has started to grow together, and you can tell that in the structure and feel of the songs. When you feel tight…

Knife

Knife with Vince Nihil The band was founded in 2019 by Laz and Vince Nihil after their other band went on hiatus in mid-2019. Following a clear vision, the first songs were created soon. Ferli Coltello joined the band on drums and as a producer during the first writing process. Rook joined the band soon…

Scar of the Sun

Inertia with Terry Nikas The new record was created quite different from our first two. While the first two resulted from a more collective process, the new was composed mainly by our guitarist Greg, who composed 10 out of 11 songs. He was on fire, so we decided to go with the flow and work…

Lord 

Undercovers Vol. 1 with Andy Dowling The latest major release is ‘Undercovers’ Vol.1, released in April 2021. It comprises a large collection of covers from our career to date and some newer recordings. The album was led by the single release of ‘To the Moon and Back’, our cover of the Savage Garden classic. Coming…

Feuerschwanz

Memento Mori with Hauptmann Feuerschwanz Memento Mori 2021 was created during the lockdown in winter 2020/2021. The overall mood in Germany at that time was pretty bad; that’s why we wrote many battle songs. The whole album is a battle cry against the global pandemic. Within the band, there are small creative groups that work…

Hiraes

Solitary with Britta Görtz, Lukas Kerk Lukas Kerk: Our debut album, ‘Solitary’ has been released on June 25, 2021, via Napalm Records, and it can be described as an album that combines many typical Melodic Death Metal elements but is also open to influences from other genres. As the album came into being during the…

Bokassa

Molotov Rocktail with Jørn Kaarstad Our new record Molotov Rocktail 2021 is a perfect fusion of punk rock, sludge, stoner metal and rock. One reviewer said we took the best parts of Nofx, Fu Manchu, Clutch and Melvins and blended them into our own thing. That’s the best description of our band I’ve ever heard,…

Lucifer For President

Asylum with Demian De Saba ‘Asylum’ is maybe our best declaration of ‘purity’. The first and only idea behind the composing process has always been straight, easy listening and rock. It could seem a loss of Focus in a certain way because our past as musicians says another story. But our return to a ‘primitive’…

Apostolica

Haeretica Ecclesia by Apostolica Apostolica has founded a new cult based on an intriguing and enigmatic image, a bombastic and pristine sound, catchy riffs and plenty of unforgettable hooks & choirs. With its fresh and invigorating songwriting, Haeretica Ecclesia is the first chapter of the four masked prophets’ very own book of revelations: a prophecy…

Nuclear Revenge

Dawn of the Primitive Age with Nuclear Revenge Dawn of the Primitive Age is our second album and the first album with the current line-up (new bass player and a second guitar). All four of us have been friends for a long time, and each one has added his touch to almost every song of…

Xoth

Interdimensional Invocations with Tyler Sturgill Since their debut in 2014, Seattle’s Xoth has continually spewed its unique brand of extreme metal upon unsuspecting listeners to great pleasure and critical acclaim. Appearing on festivals including Northwest Terror Fest and sharing the stage with bands including Voivod, Napalm Death, and Marduk, Xoth has consistently turned heads and…

Reaping Asmodeia

Darkened Infinity with Alexander Drake Kelly ‘Darkened Infinity’ was written and approached as a concept piece. We envisioned a record that is to be listened to front to back. The 3 of us expanded our writing process beyond our instruments and added electronic influence and orchestration elements. Each of us was able to produce pre-production…

Exterminated

The Genesis of Genocide with Exterminated Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share what this album is all about. The Genesis of Genocide 2021 was our latest effort of relentless and straightforward BDM under the influence of the early BDM bands such as Disavowed, Dying Fetus, Disgorge and Suffocation. We’ve crafted this album…

Hexorcist

Evil Reaping Death with Carlos Villegas Hexorcist was formed in February 2019. We started working on new material immediately, and by the end of the year, we had recorded part of the demo and had some of the songs that would comprise the full length. Everything took longer than anticipated to finish because we had…

Ophidian I

Desolate by Ophidian I We emerged from Iceland, the barren island in the north, home to apocalyptic weather, eruptions and storms. The breeding intensity, blazing speed and ferocity of Ophidian I reflects the chaos it hails from and the inherent beauty and complex harmony. Consisting of familiar faces within the Icelandic scene as members of…

Sabïre

Jätt with Scarlett Monastyrski Sabïre is a self-proclaimed Acid Metal outfit from Australia with its early roots in Canada. Led by visionary Scarlett Monastyrski, Sabïre paves the way for a new approach to heavy music using an iconic androgynous image, heartfelt stinging lyrics, and their trademark shimmery acidic sound. Following up their 2018 already legendary…

Intricated

Apocalyptic Metamorphosis with Wasumit Wongwai, Pratchaya Phadungthin Wasumit Wongwai: We kind of start with the album’s concept, what we would like our album to be as a final product. And then start writing the materials, majority guitars and bass and drums, then all come together, tweak here and there to fit our style. We always…
