ALTARIA

Legendary Melodic Metal

 

Once in a while it happens that a new band approaches to the scene and immediately takes the hearts of the melodic metal world by storm. ALTARIA, with their 2003 debut album “Invitation” can be regarded as such.
Founded by ex-BLINDSIDE members Marko Pukkila (bass) and Tony Smedjebacka (drums) in 2000 and after recording a couple of demos together with guitarist Jani Liimatainen (ex-SONATA ARCTICA), both media and fans saw themselves forced to give this band a massive push! Before the recordings of the debut album guitarist Emppu Vuorinen (NIGHTWISH) also joined the band.

The band released  five sucsessful albums (INVITATION (2003) DIVINITY (2004) THE FALLEN EMPIRE (2006) DIVINE INVITATION (2008) UNHOLY (2009)) till the band decided 2016 to call it quits and played a farewell show in Finland at the legendary Nummirock Festival. This special show included performances of all former ALTARIA members.

Now in 2019, after being buried for a few years and over 1,2 MILLION views of their song “Unchain The Rain” on Youtube, ALTARIA is back from the grave with their legendary and most successful 2006 lineup and has signed a worldwide record deal with Reaper Entertainment Europe.

BLOODSPOT

BLOODSPOT

BLOODSPOT

The German Metal Beast

 

Coming from the boondocks, BLOODSPOT doesn’t know about what’s fancy. No christmas-tree, no scene, no rules. It’s all about brutality, groove, darkness and love.
The five piece metal beast from midwestern Germany has been bringing good old violent fun to the world since 2006. Living a DIY-attitude, BLOODSPOT have so far released a five-track-EP and three albums, always making sure to deliver angry, raw and dirty rock ‘n’ roll music. Their stubborn mix of Thrash-, Death-, Doom-, and Punk-sounds appears like an antithesis to our modern world, letting you know what high energy feels like. And it will hurt. Badly.

DEAD ALONE

DEAD ALONE

DEAD ALONE

German Death Metal

 

The inside-tip DEAD ALONE is back with their new work called “Serum“. On the fith album the musicians remained true to atmospheric Death Metal and managed to develop their unique trademarks at the same time. “Serum“ the the band’s most innovative, complex and catching album yet.

DEAD ALONE mirror an oppressive reality in which humanitiy causes its own apocalypse by merciless exploiting faith and hope. „With “Serum“ the band kicks their autience into that world that is based on roaring guitars, driving drums and an intense bass. Above the music singer Florian Hefft’s vocals sit enthroned an reign with desperate screams, agressive nagging and deep growls. Ornately interwoven orchester parts carry through this massive piece of art.

“Serum“ was produced at Perlsound Studio (Munich), the drums were recorded at Forester Studios (e. g. THRÄNENKIND, HERETOIR). Frieder Loch (Ex-TODTGELICHTER) did parts of the orchestration and synthies. “Serum“ got its powerful yet transparent sound by Dinos „Psychon“ Prassas (Live-Guitar in SEPTICFLESH) who did the mix and mastering.

It took DEAD ALONE three years until they achieved the perfect interplay of artwork, lyrics and music. “Serum“ is a demanding and intense journey that the listener won’t get out of his head easily. Highly recommended for fans of PARADISE LOST, SEPTICFLESH und ENSLAVED!

EVIL DRIVE

EVIL DRIVE

EVIL DRIVE

Female Fronted Metal from Finland

 

If you think about how long it takes for some bands to get a foothold in the music business and to present themselves to countless fans worldwide, you should have a lot of respect for EVIL DRIVE. The Finish quintet was founded in 2013, exactly five years ago, and mastered the first hurdles on their way to the big stages brilliantly. The Finns only needed two years to achieve their first record deal for their Melodic Death/Thrash Metal. The Danish label Mighty Music released their debut album „The Land Of The Dead“ in 2015 which also marks the year the band stepped into the focus of a fitting listenership for the first time. At the same time, the scene press reacted quite positive to the newcomers and their first album received good review and the deserved recognition.

 

Since then, EVIL DRIVE have increased their live appearances and developed musically as well. In their own creative forge, the Evil Drive Studio, the band continuously worked on new material has now been collected on their upcoming album „Ragemaker“. As you will notice, the band has improved in every aspect. The sound is more powerful, the songwriting more delicate and varied and the instrumental parts have gained audible technical dexterity. Also singer Viktoria Viren has expanded her vocal range, making her vocals more colorful and haunting than ever before. One of the biggest wins is J-P Pusa, who joined the band as guitarist and directly started to work on each and every aspect of the band. Not only did he produce the album, he has also worked diligently on the songwriting and the arrangements together with the rest of the band, making the sound of „Ragemaker“ much more impressive than its predecessor’s. Not only did EVIL DRIVE initiate their own progress, they also reached the attention of Reaper Entertainment: this still young label from Germany directly signed them with a three album deal.
