ALTAR OF I (Klagenfurt, Aut)
Melodic Death Metal
All members of ALTAR OF I have years long experience in bands and different genres. They don't aim to create something "new" or "never-been-done-before" but rather concentrate on music that simply sounds good and contains everything the members like in music; thus it should be loud and heavy and contain melodic, brutal, old and new sounds, in other words they like to play METAL. Some might call it Melodic Death, Modern Metal, Metalcore or whatever genre that pops up every year. They want to call it Metal because it has got everything that in our opinion defines that genre and they think that it is on the listener to define what we are for them. In the end, they are not here to make anybody happy but themselves.
HELLCRAWLER (Nova Gorica, Slo)
Dwelling among the debris of the whore capital of Western Slovenia, HELLCRAWLER are a bunch of cynical wasteland denizens who found unsavory panacea in the symbiosis of punk violence, stoner atmosphere and heavy riffage. Their soundtrack to the demise of humankind is a motorized assault of old school death metal and d-beat which reflects their major source of inspiration, the decaying aesthetic of post apocalyptic and grindhouse cinematography.
LEHM (Graz, Aut)
Influenced by fear, emptiness, depression, nature, all and nothing Grazian post doomers LEHM decided to express themselves through intense music.
