Distorted Force

Distorted Force

Distorted Force formed at 2005 at Thessaloniki, Greece. They almost split up and re-formed at fall of 2008. It didn't took a long for the line up to be complete. Two years later they recorded their first demo called: “Distorted Force” having more traditional heavy metal sound. At 2011 Distorted Force released an EP under the title “A Dead Man's Dream”. The atmospheric mood combined with the lyrical concept of life and death, led to great feedback from their audience. At May of 2012, many line up changes brought a much more heavier playstyle and attitude to the band. More aggressive thematologies and brutal vocals for the first time in the band's history had made the title: “Depersonalization”. At February of 2013, Distorted Force record and release their first full length album “Fields in Desolation”. A progressive metal record, strongly combined with their known dark atmosphere. DF have performed plenty of live shows all over Greece and Cyprus, getting the opportunity to make known their sound. It is a sound influenced by bands like Dream Theater, Anathema and Nevermore. Distorted Force are: Gus (vox), Nick (vox), Nick (l.guitar), Alex (r.guitar), Agatha (bass), Achilles (keys) and Thomas (drums).

FATAL INSTINCT

FATAL INSTINCT

Arising from the depths of Langley BC’s infamous "Bible Belt" is FATAL INSTINCT, a band born out of mutual frustration with today's disappointing Metal offerings and a genuine desire to create a true “Neoteric Sound." Drummer Scott Aquino and vocalist James Buhs (both x- Devil’s Tower) formed in March 2012, looking to create music without limits and rules. In the pre-writing stage of the band's existence, “FI” acquired guitarist Steve “Machine” Ricardo (x- Cornucopia / Death Match Union / Bif Naked) and together they have merged technical style and vividly detailed arrangements into a distinctive sound that has rocked the Fraser Valley. Entering the cage match mid 2012, bassist Chris Campbell (The Mighty One) rounds out "FI," throwing down a thunderous combination of arrangement and tonality flair. Politics, war, addiction and personal relationships all weigh heavy lyrically, paired with epic choruses that are sure to incite the audience into a mass, unified, revolutionary chant. As a cohesive writing force, the band has a driving passion to raise the bar on their craft... gone are the stagnant and predictable "Metal-esque" clichés we have all come to hate, leaving plenty of room for full-on, explosive arrangements and shredding passages. According to James... "FATAL INSTINCT represents not only the wrong choices in life, the temptation, greed... BUT rising above, learning from mistakes and striving for persistence." Currently, the band is working on its first full length album and planning their U.S. summer festival tour while filming the process as they rise from the dust to a full "Wreck'ning" force! "FI's" Youtube channel treats fans to plenty of candid behind-the-scenes video including their first radio interview with “68 Radio” out of San Diego California. FATAL INSTINCT is a DIY band, not taking NO for an answer, being all seasoned veterans of the metal world with a number of successes to their names, this band is going hard and here to stay.

Cuerock

Cuerock

They are BACK ! After a long sleep, due to the band not only having lost their bassist but at the same time a very close friend, their enthusiasm was thwarted in carrying on as a band. However some years later they awoke from their long sleep, and carried on doing that what their old bassist would probably have wanted them to carry on doing, and that was making music. This tragic loss had also made them stronger, better and more creative in their works, after all they had a good length of time to gather up new ideas for the future! Worth it, it was. And so again from the original foundations of Cuerock in the 80´s they where back in the scene, being more melodic but also more intricate/extrovert+ intellectual with their new emerged brand of progressive rock. They where joined in 2010 by a very accomplished/professional British frontman who himself was a very highly respected and known vocalist on the U.K. music scene of the late 70/80´s I.e. new wave of British heavy metal, touring and billing with such names as Praying Mantis, Tigers-of-Pan-Tang, Thin-Lizzy, Krocus, April Wine and many more. So now Cuerock were finally fully equipped for a furious new start ahead. When approached and asked by outsiders as to how they would care to describe their form of music, well, the answer would probably be as follows: a melodic, meaningful form of progressive rock with an element of commercialism, music probably better fitting for the more Intellectual music listener/collector, composed by a bunch of very gifted musicians, without becoming extreme technical or heartless. Yes, one could openly say that is the new Cuerock of 2012. In late spring 2012 CUEROCK gets into the radar of the international promoter and publisher Hans Derer, who signs CUEROCK for his label 7Hard in early summer 2012. At august, 7th follows the wordwide release of the remixed "Tales Of Future Passed" album from 2011 with a brand new masterpiece (Kaleidoscope part 2) on it.

Phavian

Phavian

Download our Foreword EP for free: http://foreword.phavian.com Pre-order your copy of Meridian I today - http://store.phavian.com - Available everywhere October 31st Phavian is a Los Angeles-based band created out of no mold. This unique project often take listeners from soft, beautiful, melodic passages to heavy, intense, riff-driven segments within the span of a single song. Viewing music as a boundless art, they use unconventional rhythms, orchestrations, and melodies as tools in crafting a sonic world for listeners to delve into. The band was created as a musical entity focused on composition, which led to the creation of their debut album, Kiena. After Kiena’s release, Phavian spent 2009 gigging, touring, and promoting their music. 2009 was a year filled with learning experiences that helped the band grow as performers and artists. Using their recent experience and prolific nature to their advantage, Phavian has embarked on an unheard of endeavor: a four-album concept. While promoting Kiena, they began crafting a two-part concept that, in part due to length, was broken into four separate releases: Meridian I, Meridian II, Inversion, and Stretta. The recording process for all four albums began in February of 2011, with the first of the albums, Meridian I, scheduled for a late 2011 release. Each consecutive album will follow closely behind. The new albums are proof that the band has been hard at work honing and carefully refining their craft in order to create a more intricate, entrancing, and mature sound. Phavian began as a vessel for creating music with no boundaries. The next couple of years will be the playground for them to prove that music is still a thriving art form.

Agnosia

Agnosia

Agnosia is a progressive metal band which was formed in Piraeus during 2003 by the guitarists/songwriters Dion and Manos (who was also the former vocalist). Along with the keyboardist Chris (Wastefall), drummer Kostas (Crimson Fire) and Vangelis Yalamas (Fragile Vastness) as a session bassist and producer, Agnosia released their debut 4 track demo which was entitled ‘The Inner Conflict’ in April 2004. The aim of the demo was to help the band entering the metal underground. The response was really optimistic. Respected metal magazines and fanzines such as Metal Hammer GR (8/10), Metalzone Magazine GR (8.5/10) Metaleagle.com (7/10), The Metal Observer (7.5/10), Shapelesszine (8/10), Metalcoven.de (84%), Barikada.com (8/10), Powermetal.de had expressed their enthusiasm for the ‘new hope’ of the Greek Progressive Metal Scene. During the year 2005 various line-up changes were occurred and agnosia started to work for their upcoming debut release. The same year, the band found its permanent bass player, Julio as well as a new music home, the Noise Factory Studios. The recordings of the new album started in the year 2007. The drums for the album were recorded by Akis Gavalas (Sound of Silence, Thanos Mikroutsikos, Christos Thivaios band etc). The vocals were recorded by Chris and the Keyboards were written and performed by the keyboardist/composer Pantelis. The album recording sessions took place in Athens and Piraeus Greece (M.I. and Noise Factory Studios respectively). Moreover, Julio was responsible for the sound production of the album, co-operating with Konstantinos (our new drummer) concerning the mixing procedure. The album was mastered by Mika Jussila at the infamous Finnvox studios in Helsinki, Finland (Nightwish, Amorphis, Horizon’s End etc.). Trace Decay, received excellent reviews (Metal Hammer GR 8/10, Rock Hard GR 8.5/10, Metalzone.gr 90%, Greekrebels.gr 8/10, Underground-Empire.com 14/20, Hard n Heavy 3.5/5, Behind the Veil 8/10) guiding the band to the next level. Among the interest of the Metal magazines and fanzines, Radio Stations (Sto Kokkino fm, Aigaio Live fm, Kastoria Fm, 902 fm etc) and TV shows (Art Uber Alles) contacted Agnosia in order to ask them participating in various shows. Moreover the band was the support act for the progressive metal masters Fates Warning in their reunion ‘Parallels Live’ anniversary show in Thessaloniki Greece. In that show the band introduced their new singer Louis (ex-Fatal Morgana, Equal Vector, Imaginery etc.) and keyboard player Kimon to 900 metal fans. The new era for Agnosia has already begun. These days, the band is back again in Noise Factory Studios working in the pre-production of the second full-length album. A Greek tour and some dates outside Greece will be announced very soon.
