Metal Blade Records
Epic proggy/power metal with primarily clean sung female vox, some cool death metal growls, kind of making it a little bit like Epica… Probably a bit more melodic and symphonic. Decent stuff.

Season of Mist
Brutal death metal, maybe a little bit grindy, just full on in your face death metal. great stuff, can’t wait for more.

Act of Defiance

This is some cool crazy proggy metalcore… maybe a bit like SOAD and Protest the Hero-ish, Faith No More… just a lot of crazy cool stuff going on… definitely crossing into experimental range.

Dark and doomy blackened gothy doom. Kind of scary and depressive.

Thin The Herd
Fastbreak Records
A thrashy hardcore thing, maybe a bit like a Pro-Pain… classic barking vox, catchy hardcore’d up thrash beats.

Sons of Crom
