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.

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!

BIO :

Valfreya was created, back in February of 2009, by Crook, singer and main composer.
Having many compositions she wanted out there with a much more aggressive musical sound than typical folk metal.
Many members have joined the band over the years, to finally settle down with the current lineup, which now brings it's own musical ideas to Valfreya.



The tree of life,
source of eternal youth and strength,
nurturing nine worlds filled with immortal legends

A Deity feared and adored by all,
Freyja,
had to change the course of destiny.
Resolute, she went to Yggdrasil`s roots
so she could meet the three weavers of destinies, the norns.

Past, present and future reunited.

An agreement was struck.

Freyja chose from the dead;
the lost souls of wandering, restless warriors.
To get a chance at redemption, new life was granted to them.

 Bio : 


SORROWSEED is a melodic extreme metal manifestation of twisted prophecies that once tormented the minds of Morte McAdaver and Thomas Cyranowski. Now the Extinction Prophecies are unleashed to wreak cacophonous havoc upon the ears of the masses.

After dissolving in early 2011 A.D., the Order of Sorrowseed returned at the beginning of 2012 A.D., with some old members returning, and some new souls
joining.

Lilith Astaroth: The human manifestation of the Reaping Willow, the goddess Lilith leads the Order with her nightmarish, phlegmy Screams of Torture.

Morte McAdaver: One of two creatures to survive the dissolution of the previous order, he shall provide many Murderous Axes to the faces of feeble human filth.

Asmodai: First of the new souls, his Thumping Lines shall cause the earth to quake and cities to crumble.

Prometheus B. Subrick: The final of new souls (or lack thereof in his case), this failed laboratory creation infects the children of the human species with Percussive Nightmares.

The Phantom Cyr: The second of two depraved beings to survive the Order's original demise, this disturbed conductor's Orchestral Depravities haunt mankind's collective conscience.

The Order has risen again, and will stop at nothing until this world is at its end.

Sorrowseed's full-length 2CD debut, "The Extinction Prophecies" is now available on iTUNES, CDBABY, and eMUSIC. More details at www.sorrowseed.com!

Bio :



Rock n’ roll circa 2011 is becoming an increasingly predictable affair, so, whenever a band comes along refusing to fit the mold, it usually doesn't go unnoticed. Case in point, Boston’s Mongrel – vocalist Jessica Sierra, guitarist Adam Savage, and drummer Dave Kazukiewicz. Formed with the belief that "punk" was more than a fashion requirement, Mongrel was born in 2003 in Eastern Massachusetts, quickly leaving their mark on both the local and national music scene. They have been included in "5 Bands to Watch" (Hippo Press, March 2005) and "5 Bands to Discover" (Hippo Press, November 2005). Mongrel has also been featured in Revolver magazine’s “Raw Talent” section (Nov. 2005), and was cited in Metal Edge magazine as “the hardest working band in Boston” (Jan. 2006). Feburary 2008 found Mongrel in Metal Edge once again, as well as featured on their monthly sampler cd alongside Ozzy Osbourne and Cradle of Filth. In September 2008, Mongrel was the featured "Underground Buzz" artist on Loudside.com.
Mongrel has toured extensively throughout the US, repeatedly sharing stages with metal and punk luminaries as diverse as The Misfits, FEAR, Korn, GWAR, Fu Manchu, Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses), The Exploited, Prong, Otep, Wednesday 13, Michale Graves, Blitzkid, The Independents, Trashlight Vision, Piggy D’s Evacuation Plan, Mushroomhead, Hed(pe), American Headcharge, Mower, Psychostick, All That Remains, etc.; receiving airplay on major Rock outlets including WAAF, WBCN, WFNX, WGIR, WHEB, as well as Sirius/XM and Music Choice. Along the way, Mongrel has earned an impressive collection of endorsements and sponsorships including Marshall Amps, Peavey, Monster Cable, Seymour Duncan pickups, Dean Markley strings, Agile guitars, In Tune Guitar Picks, TRX Cymbals, Cabin Fever Whiskey, and Cocaine & Brawndo energy drinks.
Mongrel's first full length album "Fear, Lies, & Propaganda" was re-released by Screaming Ferret Wreckords/ Locomotive Records / Ryko Distribution on April 8th, 2008. The album featured such standout tracks as “Bound to Crash,” “Dyslexic Alchemist (Fucked it all away),” “No Gods, No Masters,” and especially “West Memphis Hell,” the latter of which focuses on the highly controversial West Memphis 3 case. Following up the critically acclaimed "Fear, Lies, & Propaganda" cd, Mongrel released a 5 song EP entitled "Revenge" in October 2009, with their new full length CD "This Means War" due out in early 2010. "Revenge" was recorded by Tim Koukos (Nuclear Assault, Meliah Rage) at SFW studios in Manchester, NH and was mixed by Jeff Wallace (Biohazard, Pro-Pain, End of an Era) at Entrolab Studio in Toms River, NJ and garnered great reviews from fans and critics alike as well as airplay on Sirius/XM and Music Choice.
After some evolutionary lineup changes in the first half of 2010, Mongrel hit the studio with their new singer (Jessica Sierra) and new drummer (Dave Kazukiewicz) and recorded the 6 song "The New Breed of Old School" ep with Jim Foster (POD, Nullset, Graveyard BBQ) at the helm. The EP featured 6 songs from the "Fear, Lies, and Propaganda" album as a way to reintroduce the band to the fans by letting the new lineup show its merits on songs the fans knew. Mongrel entered the studio again with Jim Foster at the beginning of October 2010 to begin recording their next full length album due out in early 2011.
Balancing old school punk intensity, and metal aggression, with hard rock hooks and riffs, Mongrel is a hungry, young rock band ready to take on the world. The recordings are only part of the equation though, as Mongrel live is an equally unforgettable experience. It's high energy, intense, fun, and interactive. Fans can expect a band that is always willing to hang out and chat. "We are all music fans too, and are always eager to talk to the bands that we love, so it is very important for us to interact with anyone who wants to at our shows or online.”
