Deep in the 80s, high in quality
Promising Italian HARD ROCKERS WITCHE'S BREW got together by their own Rock'n'Roll destiny in 2007.
The band's name WITCHE'S BREW is taken from the name of guitarist Mirko Witche Bosco.
After a few usual changes in the band they finally found finally the perfect line-up to record their fourth and best album to date: "Chronicles Of Electric Sorcery".
The new, all around sovereignly presented compositions reveal truly outstanding, great potential, and it is by no means a coincidence that the production of the record also strongly reminds of the glorious 80s.

Formed in the forges of Upper Franconia, VARUS is committed to a lengthy and all-round profound concept:
The equally independent as well as epic and aesthetic fusion of classical music, traditional Folk and pithy Metal.
The initial raw idea developed into a characteristic, dynamic SYMPHONIC FOLK METAL style that strikes an original balance between emotional, atmospheric, epic orchestrations and thunderous, dark guitar thunderstorms.
In 2014 the band released its debut album "Till The Sun Rises", now they are back in the scene with the brilliant successor "A New Dawn".

The power of imagination
VELVET OCEAN is an ALTERNATIVE MELODIC METAL band from Oulu, Northern Finland. The story of the band began a couple of years ago as a co-writing project of the main singer Riitu and her husband, guitarist Jarkko 'Jake' Ronkainen.
As songs kept popping up the project soon evolved into a studio project with both session musicians and later band members joining in. Early in the pre-production stage Oulu symphonic orchestra cello players Arto Alikoski and Harri Österman joined as well as the established Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck.
The debut album recorded in this way, which later got the title "Purposes And Promises", was handed over to Johan Örnborg and Jens Bogren for mixing and mastering at the well-known Fascination Street Studios.

Straight from within
When the fellows launched HANGATYR in spring 2006, the stylistic direction of the idealists from Saxony and Central Thuringia was immediately clear:
cold, Nordic guitar riffs, paired with typical Thuringian melodies and German lyrics, inspired by the mythology that lives deep inside the creators, should shape the music.
In October 2019, the route once again led to Chemical Burn Studios in Bad Kösen, Germany. Together with Alexander Dietz, known from Heaven Shall Burn, the new compositions were refined, which can now be heard on "kalt":
relentlessly hard-hitting, uncompromising BLACK METAL anthems, from which the eternal spirit of the old and the true proudly emerges.
