Fantastic stirring extremes

Dutch EPIC EXTREME METAL band SLECHTVALK started out as a one-man project in 1999 by founder Shamgar. The debut album 'Falconry' was released in 2000 by FEAR DARK and received excellent reviews for its raw and symphonic Black Metal.

In 2003 SLECHTVALK began performing live, wearing medieval costumes and armour. Due to its unique live-appearance, the band recorded a live-show in 2004, which was released together with the 3rd album 'At The Dawn Of War' in 2005.

Between 2006 and 2008 the band underwent some line-up changes, although the group still did some small tours with bands such as MÅNEGARM, SKYFORGER and SUIDAKRA.

After having launching a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2015, SLECHTVALK recorded their new album 'Where Wandering Shadows And Mists Collide' with producer Lasse Lammert (known for his work on GLORYHAMMER, ALESTORM, SVARTSOT).

Soundtrack for the Apocalypse

Pure passion! Three very playful blokes who sacrifice everything for their cause of boiling heart blood, which the pump only gives.

Axeman, speedfreak and shouter Jonathan Brutschin, bass player Toby Straumann and drummer Simon Straumann are FREAKINGS and whip the eardrums with ecstatic, wild, damn precise THRASH METAL!

‚Old School to the bone!‘ is the motto of master Brutschin and the capable Straumann brothers. The fact that the Swiss 2017 compete again in the original line-up, speaks absolutely for the authenticity of the resistant Swiss trio.

Delicately degenerated and animal-mangy screaming awards the new album "Toxic End“, while jagged gangshouts according to the best proven UK-style are simply not to be missed. Official release date for "Toxic End“ was March 6, 2017.

Strong 80s roots keep also high material stable

SANDNESS is the striking result of a project which started out in 2008, when two teenage friends, Mark Denkley and Metyou ToMeatyou (bass and drums respectively) decided to form a HARD ROCK band, in order to bring the ‘80s back to life with original tracks.

During the last few years the band has achieved a good success both in Italy and abroad, and they had the chance to play as support band for renowned musicians such as Adam Bomb (2010), L.A. Guns (2011) and Tygers Of Pan Tang in 2015.

SANDNESS' second album is entitled "Higher & Higher". Official release date: 16th December 2016.

High time for a direct confrontation course with real life!

Born under the monicker Modern Middle Ages these casual bunch of SLEAZE HARD ROCK enthusiasts eventually became ROXIN' PALACE and was founded in 2011 by Crown, guitar player in the bands Revoltons and Hell, ex drummer of Elvenking.

For rhythm guitar duties Crown recruited his friend Slaver. Later they completed their blowing rhythm section with bass maniac Garret, who had many years of experience mainly in Hard Rock cover bands, and the young talented singer Axel, completing the line up in March 2012.

Later the group started its live activity sharing stages with acts such as Phantom X (USA), Salamandra (Czech Rep) and Jettblack (UK). The album was mixed by Swedish producer Staffan Karlsson, and has been released on June 7th, 2013 by the Germany company SAOL Music.

The new line-up wrote songs for a second album and the new release "Freaks Of Society" has been released in October 2016 via established record company Sleaszy Rider Records.

Nordic melancholy

The MYRKGRAV album "Takk Og Farvel; Tida Er Blitt Ei Annen" (translation: Thank you and farewell; times have changed) is difficult to give an unbiased description of. In essence, it is a follow-up to the 2006 debut album "Trollskau, Skrømt Og Kølabrenning", but needless to say a lot can happen in ten years.

Still, "Takk Og Farvel; Tida Er Blitt Ei Annen" represents a natural progression from what the debut album showcased: proper FOLK METAL with roots in the blacker side of the extreme Metal genres. "Takk Og Farvel; Tida Er Blitt Ei Annen" has been launched on all streaming services October 26th.

Online FDR download with full resolution cover art from Bandcamp as well as physical format CD and limited edition CD in collaboration with Pest Productions and METALMESSAGE • Global PR is also scheduled, but release dates are TBA.

Never serve!

2013, the heavy BLACK METAL monument WOLVES DEN was lifted from the spiritual depths of the involved musicians and placed in ice-cold darkness. A musical specifically unholy and artistic enormously stable solid existence was the result.

As chief creative minds behind WOLVES DEN act singer and bassist Helge Stang and guitarist Mexx Steiner. Vocal cord torturer Helge with his insanely fascinating voice caused already enthusiastic reactions in Equilibrium for some years and on two albums, as well as in Arafel and some other bands.

Their outstanding profound debut album "Deus Vult" ("God Wants It") has been recorded between March and April 2015 in Munich based Grotesque Studios, resulting in a very good sound experience.

Currently the roundabout highly promising WOLVES DEN creating songs for the upcoming album successor, truly stunning material is expected!

"Oh, Nameless One! We may rise up from the ashes of Doom!"

‘The Chaotic Art’
SVOID was formed in December 2009 by ‘S’ with the intention to define a link between All and Nothing, which represents the formless End.

The debut material, named ‘Ars Kha’ (means ‘Chaotic Art’), was developed in the Fall of 2010, consisting mostly Black Metal-influenced tunes. At this point of time Dániel joined on drums, and with this the first line-up was established. After the recordings, ‘Ars Kha’ was released in April of 2011.

‘Storming Voices’
With the features of the new line-up the band entered the studio in 2015 to record the second full-length album titled "Storming Voices Of Inner Devotion", which is out worldwide since 18th April, 2016 by Sun & Moon Records.

Musically Zeitgeist

In the 1930s it was stated, Blues would be the dangerous work of the Devil.
In the 1940s it was stated, Jazz & Swing were frightening excesses of the Devil.
In the 1950s it was stated, Rock'n'Roll would be the evil sound of the Devil.
In the 1960s it was stated, Beat would be the unpure music of the Devil.
In the 1970s it was stated, Rock music would be the corrupting sound of the Devil.
Well, and since the 1980s it was stated, Heavy Metal would be a diabolic spawn of the Devil.

What the much-reviled one heard in earlier centuries, is not officially known.
In any case, it seems clear that the ever pert bloke became really pretty musically, specifically over the last ten decades…
