MEMORIAM

Oldschool Death Metal

 

Hailing from Birmingham, England, MEMORIAM are an Old School Death Metal outfit featuring Karl Willetts (Ex-Bolt Thrower), Scott Fairfax (As The World Dies, Ex-Benediction live), Frank Healy (Ex-Benediction, Sacrilege) and Andy Whale (Ex-Bolt Thrower). It all began when four veterans of the genre got together to discuss playing covers of the bands that influenced them along the way, however it soon became apparent that the high calibre of musicianship would lead to a resurgence of the genre, through new and original content. Three albums later, with numerous Club shows and festivals around Europe, MEMORIAM have cemented their name amongst the elite of Death Metal and they are here to stay!

TANKARD

TANKARD

TANKARD

Thrash Metal

 

In 1982, when four longhaired metal maniacs from Frankfurt am Main, Germany decided to found a band named TANKARD, nobody expected them to still be going three decades later. Not to mention being at the top of the German thrash metal scene! But they are still alive and kicking, and throughout these years there’s barely been a blip in their path! Today, when the routine of breaking-up, making a “reunion” and disappearing again seems to be the order of play for bands, TANKARD never joined this course of action and kept holding their flag of thrash metal high: a very respectable effort! NOT ONE DAY DEAD!

METAL CHURCH

Oldschool Heavy Metal

 

Born out of the West Coast Metal scene of the 80’s, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of the genre. After signing a deal with Elektra records, they released two critically acclaimed albums, their self-titled release Metal Church and The Dark. With the heavy metal scene starting to rise in the U.S., Metal Church set out on a very successful tour with label mates Metallica. They tackled political and social issues of the day with the releases of Blessing In Disguise and The Human Factor. At a time when heavy metal bands moved from the underground and became part of the hair band/pop fad, Metal Church stayed true to their roots. In March of 2016 Metal Church released their eleventh studio album XI that reached #57 on the Billboard Top 200 and also landed on several other charts around the globe. Metal Church’s previous album Damned If You Do was the follow up to XI and landed on numerous charts around the globe in 2018. The album has been described as a cross between the band’s iconic Blessing In Disguise and The Human Factor albums.

PARASITE INC.

PARASITE INC.

PARASITE INC.

German Melodic Death Metal

PARASITE INC. were founded 2007 in the German Metal hot spot Aalen and became well-known pretty quickly. Their 2010 demo “Parasite Inc.“ already found a lot of fans within the worldwide Melodic Death Metal community. Since their debut album “Time Tears Down“ at latest, the Southern German band was predicted a great future. They received lots of positive feedback from the scene press as well as from dozens of headbangers in front of every stage PARASITE INC. played on. If on festivals or tours, at home or in foreign countries: The quartet reached every single audience and their fame grew. The reason why: PARASITE INC. developed their own sound right from the beginning while keeping their own trademarks. But not everything went well: line-up changes and the closing of their label followed, and so it became quiet around the band. Viewed from the outside, it looked like PARASITE INC. had disappeared as one of the highly praised talents within the depths of the scene.

But we were wrong! The Germans have been more active than ever, developing their sound continuously and were working intensely on new stuff in the background. In the mid of 2017, the band entered their own studio to record the long-awaited new album which is worth the waiting: eleven tracks unite into the mighty “Dead and Alive“. The band continues to offer powerful Melodic Death Metal – sometimes gloomy and atmospheric, sometimes straight into your face. But that’s not enough, so the band added several new elements like Punk, Thrash and 80’s Synth Rock, thus adding a lot of facets, creating a varied and exciting album that now arises. As with “Time Tears Down” the band had the complete control over the production.

Guitarist and singer Kai comments: It was definitely important for us to have a harmonious overall concept that satisfied us, from the artwork to the mix, while giving me a lot of time for the songwriting and above all for the lyrics. Our drummer Benni again did a fantastic job for the artwork and the mix.”

This time the mastering was done by the talented hands of Pitchback Studios mastermind Aljoscha Sieg who already gave the final touch to bands like August Burns Red, Nasty and Eskimo Callboy.

“Dead and Alive” is strongly influenced by their own fans, who significantly supported the new PARASITE INC. album through a crowdfunding campaign. It was released on August 17th via Reaper Entertainment.

MILKING THE GOAT­MACHINE

Finest Grind’n’Crust

from Goat E Borg

 

As if out of nowhere the album “Back from the Goats” of the goat herd MILKING THE GOATMACHINE appeared in 2009 and this year they can be seen on all well-known festival stages of the metal world. The sudden appearance fits the band history. According to their own statements, the brothers Goatleeb and Goatfreed Udder came to earth from their planet GoatEBorg in 2008 to usurp world domination with their Goatgrind (the mentally intact earth metaller would probably call it Death/Grind).
