BIO :
 
The name AEVUM summarizes the meaning of music, the research, and the evolving of the band.

AEVUM translated from Latin, is the Angel of Judgment, the greek aeon, that marks the end of a known order of things and the coming of a great change, of a new system.
Their music is a costantly moving towards the union between the human and the divine, between opposites, between male and female, between positive and negative, in a genre that is the union between classical music and gothic-metal.

The project shapes in the late 2007 and the early 2008 from the encounter between the singer Evelyn Moonl and the pianist Richard. Over the years, the line-up has seen the alternation of new singers, guitarists and drummers, but since two years the line-up is complete and consists of 7 young musicians. The peculiarity of the group is the uses of texts sung in different languages with lyrical voice, clean, growl and scream, and researched music.

Currently, AEVUM have two EPs, Celestial Angels, released in 2008, and Nova Vita in 2012, both self-produced.
At times melancholic, at time powerful, their concerts are an unforgettable experience for the great stage presence and the emotional charge contained in their songs.

City: Turnhout


Country:Belgium

Lyrical themes: N/A

Current label : Unsigned

BIO :

Having risen out of different bands and backgrounds around Turnhout, Belgium, Vortigyn leaps forward by the end of 2011. At that time, Ester (vocals), Joris (grunts and guitar), Wannes (bass guitar), and Günther (drums) welcome Cisse (guitar) into their band.
Song writing is blossoming in early 2012, and, as a result, they try to define and re-define their sound. While definitely female fronted and surely metal, they incorporate some influences that are not immediately 

 associated with most female fronted metal bands. That is, Vortigyn is less of a gothic metal band, and tries to mix different ingredients, such as: power riffs, heavy sound, grooves, experimental and rock influences, while still using classical high female vocals and deep male grunts. It's more Lacuna Coil or even Evanescence than Nightwish, so to speak. Mostly, Vortigyn is a band that is interested in melody and songs as a whole. 



Finally, having played their newest songs for several audiences in the late summer of 2012, Vortigyn decides the time is right for a debut EP. In October 2012, the band travels to the north of the Netherlands, where they spend a week in the double impact productions studio. The result is this self-titled first EP: Vortigyn.

                                             LACHAISE
                                        



Genre: Gothic Rock / Metal

City: Venice


Country: Italy

Year of creation: 2007

Lyrical themes: Melancholy, Inner Struggles

Current label : Revalve Records



 LINKS :        Facebook     Youtube         Web
               



MEMBERS :
 

Xenya Nyx: Vocals

Niklas 'Suspiria' Goottilainen: Piano, Keyboards and Orchestral Arrangements.



Gezwind P. Vingerstaal: Guitars and Bass

Paul Ongars: Drums
 


BIO :
 
The first thing that springs to mind is, “Lachaise...how the hell do you pronounce that?”. At least it’s not yet another English word, recalling as it does the famous Parisian Père Lachaise cemetery.
Established in 2007 following the combination of various projects, the band published its first album “Silent cries for help” in June 2008, produced by the record label MP&Records. That same year, the
band was selected to open the Italian tour of Christian Death, a legendary US gothic rock band.
Despite various line-up changes, keyboard player and leading composer Niklas “Suspiria” Goottilainen has always stayed on. For him, “you can overlap any type of sound , perform any type of virtuoso feat, but melody must reign supreme, with no half-measures”.
One of the characteristics of the band’s live performances is the absence of a bass guitar. When asked “how come?”, the guitarist Gezwind P. Vingerstaal answers: “We’ve never felt the bass guitar to be essential to our genre. We use 7- and 8-strings guitars and 88 keys keyboards, and we just don’t feel it’s necessary for now”.
In its current and by now well established line-up, Lachaise is about to publish its second album “A state of Oblivion” with the Revalve Records label, established by former member and founder of the Theatres Des Vampires, Rob Cufaro. The album is to be released in September 2012. Ranging from rock to metal, gothic to dark, when asked the classical question “How would you define your genre?”, this is how they reply: “We just make music…you decide!”

BIO :



The Story - Darkyra Black - Something special, something you have never heard before!
"Upon first listen you may liken it to industry greats such as Within Temptation or even Tarja (ex-Nightwish) but in doing so you wouldn’t even come close. Very few women in the industry are able to weave music in such as way as Darkyra and make music her own muse."
- EvilG, Metal Rules (Sep 15, 2013)
Scene 1 – Dragon Tears
It was through the company ‘Online Recording Masters’ based in Athens Greece that vocalist and songwriter, Darkyra found new counterparts for what was to become her very first self-titled record ‘Dragon Tears’.
Owner/musical arranger George Boussounis formed an introduction with drummer/producer Garry King (Jeff Beck, Joe Lynn Turner, Achillea) and ideas and the Darkyra concept started to evolve between the three.
After the bond had been set three additional close friends where bought in to join the ranks of the Darkyra Black team for the 2013 recordings, guitarist’s Paul Jupe, Betovani Dinelli, and keyboard player Fab Jablonski. The first Darkyra Black track prior to the full album release came out on an official video for the single ‘Tears by Candlelight’ in 2013 generating much interest in the full record. "Dragon Tears" a concept album based on a Gothic interpretation of a geisha like tale that ends in tragedy, love, loss, lust, betrayal and revenge, was released in February 2014, and built instant critical acclaim internationally as a fine blend of symphonic/gothic metal with powerful vocal performances and progressive/classic rock elements of traditional pentatonic music with an overall ‘Cinematic’ sound and feel.
“All eleven numbers here are different but are very fluent and offer up musical highlights galore, too numerous to mention, ensure you keep the CD in the player to the VERY end. To summarize, Darkyra is Dark, Passionate and Edgy and demonstrating fine vocal prowess”
Ravenheartmusic Review (6th February 2014)
Scene 2 – Of Fools and Gold
Now with the first record under her belt and amazing reviews it was time to set the scene and start the next stage of creating songs and music for a second follow up album and plan ahead for live shows and touring.
In January 2014 even before Dragon Tears was officially released Darkyra had already started work on 15 new track ideas ready for an April studio sessions deadline in the historic city of Athens. With George and Garry being based in Europe plans where laid for the three with guitarist Betovani and Keyboard player Fab Jablonski to start work recording drums, guitars, guide keys and main vocal parts for what should be the most amazing and powerful follow up record in the Darkyra story.
Again with a very strong story line, searing string sections and memorable melodies, vocal performances and songs the yet to be titled record will surely prove that Darkyra Black has set a standard very hard to beat and certainly hard to ignore both lyrically and musically.
Scene 3 – Yet to be written .......

Tothem is considered one of the most talented and promising bands of the Italian melodic metal panorama. After the release of an Ep (Tothem), in 2003 the band breaks up and only in 2010 Black Cyril, the guitar player, and Roslen, the vocalist, decide to reform Tothem with the entry of three new elements: Leo, on the bass guitar, the Joker, on drums, and Marco, on keyboards. During the years they have played at the best clubs of Rome such as the Qube, Alpheus, Ex-Magazzini, Coetus, Black Out, Jailbreak and so on. Then they took part in the Emergenza Rock competitions, reaching the final, and in the Live Magic Contest, been set at Alpheus, reaching the semifinals. They were lately placed second at the “We a.r.e. the festival” contest among more than 100 bands, while Roslen was awarded as the best female singer. Up to now they have recorded two demos (Automatisma and Pray) and two Eps (Tothem in 2003 and Osaka Bed & Breakfast released in 2010 in limited edition).

 This latest Ep got a great critical success and audience approval (300 copies gone sold out, enhanced by the chance of the free download of the songs), especially among foreign listeners and the band’s popularity is constantly growing. Rescue, second track from the Osaka B&B album, became part of the “World of Glass” and “You can’t shake me – A little help for Japan” compilations.

SACRED GROOVE



Genre:  Melodic / Gothic Metal

City:    Kleve

Country: Germany

Year of creation: 2006

Lyrical themes: N/A
 
Current label : Unsigned/independent

MEMBERS :


Stefan Deiners - Drums

Dennis Meivogel - Guitars

Chris Schlotfeldt - Bass

Jüppi Püllen - Keyboards

Isabel Willenberg - Vocals



BIO :


SACRED GROOVE stands for energetic and ear catching songs with fat groove. The musical style is based anywhere between heavy rock and melodic metal. Lead singer Isabel´s exceptionally vibrant voice guarantees uniqueness. SACRED GROOVE.´s trademarks are bombastic guitar riffs, a grooving rhythm & bass section, symphonic key and piano-parts and multifarious, emotional vocals.

Stefan Deiners (drums) and Dennis Meivogel (guitars) founded the band in the nineties but in 2006 SACRED GROOVE was resurrected with the idea of a powerful female fronted melodic metal band. In the following 3 years Chris Schlotfeldt (bass) and F.J. Püllen (keys) were recruited to the band. New material was released in 2009 on the self titled debut record SACRED GROOVE. The new album received fantastic reviews. Finally in 2010 Isabel Willenberg joined the band as lead singer and the new album “Needful Things” was released in fall 2011.

SACRED GROOVE was nominated for the german Rock and Pop Awards in 2010 and performed live in the finals in Wiesbaden. In 2011 SACRED GROOVE was finalist in the worldwide Emergenza Festival Competition and performed a groundbreaking show at the Cologne Live Music Hall.

Mit viel Energie und eingängigen Songs bewegen sich SACRED GROOVE im Spannungsfeld zwischen gitarrenlastigem Rock, Melodic Metal und einem Hauch von Gothic.

In den frühen neunziger Jahren von Stefan Deiners (Drums) und Dennis Meivogel (Guitar) gegründet und im Jahr 2006 musikalisch wiedererweckt, fand SACRED GROOVE 2008 die erste komplette Besetzung. Mit Chris Schlotfeldt (Bass) und Jüppi Püllen (Keys) waren die richtigen Musiker gefunden, um SACRED GROOVE neues Leben einzuhauchen. Im Jahr 2009 wurde umfangreich neues Material geschrieben, welches auf dem Debutalbum "SACRED GROOVE" Ende 2009/Anfang 2010 veröffentlicht wurde. Anfang 2010 stieß die Sängerin Isabel Willenberg zu SACRED GROOVE.

Nach positiver Resonanz erscheint in Kürze mit "Needful Things" eine komplett überarbeitete CD, die neben vielen Songs vom 2009/2010er Debut vier brandneue Tracks enthält und mit ihren symphonisch anmutenden Kompositionen, gefühlvollen Balladen und energetischen Rocksongs die enorme Bandbreite und Spielfreude von SACRED GROOVE belegt.

Year of creation: 2005

MEMBERS :


May Lucas - Vocals

Jose Manuel Torres - Guitars

   

Sergio López - Keyboards

Jose Luis Tarano - Bass
 

Raul Ronco - Drums




BIO :

Secret Signs was formed in April 2005 when Sergio López and Jose Manuel Torres met each other through a very popular internet music forum and decided to create a new european female fronted symphonic metal project, influenced by bands such as Epica, After Forever or Nightwish.

After finding a rehearsal place they began looking for the rest of musicians required to complete the line up, being the drummer Raul Ronco the next one to join the group.

It was not until November of the same year that they found their first singer, Lucía Sánchez, and some time later, Jose Luis Tarano joined the band as a bass player.

After some months of training they had the opportunity to record their first song “Through the Stars” in the prestigious studios “Sonora” under the direction of the sound technician and friend of the band Sonia Robles. As a result they got their song played in some metal radio stations and from that moment on they were invited to play many local gigs.

In 2008 the band came back to “Sonora” studios to record their first full length album produced by Sonia Robles and after that, they began looking for a record label. At the end of 2009 Lucía Sánchez left the band to concentrate on her studies and job full time, being replaced by May Lucas, a very young soprano with a very powerful voice who fitted perfectly into the kind of frontwoman they were looking for.

The most remarkable concert they have played so far was at Caracol (Madrid) the 19th of March 2010, supporting the Norwegian classic gothic metal band Theatre of Tragedy during their farewell tour being very well received by the audience and praised by the press.

In February 2011, the band re-recorded the vocal lines of their album with their current singer at the prestigious studios `Oasis´ in Madrid .

The album was finally released on July 2012 through Casket Music / Copro Records.

MEMBERS :


Carina Leitão - Vocals


Ivo Durães - Guitars


Mário Lopes - Guitars


Nelson Saavedra - Drums


Pedro Antunes -Keyboards


Pedro Silva - Bass








BIO :


SINMATTIC began when Pedro Antunes and Mário Lopes had the idea to create a new Melodic Metal project . Its goal was to bring out something different and musically appealing at the same time, exploring various influences and mixing them to create music that, although different, would sound fresh and familiar. Some time later, Ivo Duraes, a creative guitar player already familiar with original composition, joined the project. Once some songs were composed by these three musicians, it was necessary to find the right vocals to interpret each of them with the different vibes required. 

After working with various vocalists, the band decided to invite Carina Leitão, a singer with experience in many different styles, from Fado to Musical Theater, who brought the interpretations that were needed for the project. With the members found and the songs composed, it was now time to enter the studio to record an EP that could bring the project to an audience. The band recorded 4 tracks in the Fingerprint Music Studio and the Attic Studio, finding then Pedro Cardoso who recorded the drums needed, and André Abrantes, who gave his own touch to the songs with the bass recordings. In the summer of 2012, the band's first EP saw the light of day.

It is with great pride that SINMATTIC have now over 12 songs composed (even though only 4 have been recorded so far) and others in the composing process. We are now counting on our fans' support, whose feedback has been so very positive since day one, to achieve the conditions and have the opportunity to take our project as far as possible, and releasing more of our work. We assure you we have so much more to give you, and we look forward to it!
