Formed in the year of 2010, in the city of Brasília-DF, Brazil, Ape X and The
Neanderthal Death Squad is a brazilian band with horror movie/comic books
oriented lyrics and no specific subgenre to define their music. From 80's thrash
metal to stoner/sludge from the 90's, the music is as sincere and passionate as
art is supposed to be. Counting with a team of well-rounded musicians, who
played in bands such as Red Old Snake, Coral de Espíritos, Horta Project, Cápsula, Casa de Bicho and Lookaway, the band line-up is: David Athias (vocals), Lucas Cuesta (bass) and Victor Hormidas (drums).
The originality of the project is to make evolve different characters and
different musical influences in this legendary world…That’s why 6 singers
participates on this first album :ofian Mejri (ex-MANGO GADZI) Emmanuelson
(ELLIPSIS, WHISKY OF BLOOD), Mick (DESTINITY) Eric Bevilacqua (ex-REST INPEACE, CHEMICAL WEDDING) Ma Sarah and julien TOURNOUD.
Last point, this album sounds like a symbol within the actual conflict in the near East because you can hear vocals an lyrics in hebrew, dialectic arab, kabyl or english…So AMONSETHIS is an ambitious project, original and impossible to class. This band will not let you indifferent…You must discover it, absolutely !!!!
The Antikythera Mechanism is quickly becoming the next front line leader of the
underground Metal scene. With their debut full length album "The Inevitable
Collapse of Earthly Consummation" they have rapidly grown a dedicated and ever expanding fan base not only in their home town of Atlanta but all over the
United States. Every member comes from a deep rooted musical back ground with years of experience throughout the music industry. They have shared the stage with many world renowned artists and as a band they are constantly searching for new ways to expand their audience and progress their music into the future. The Antikythera Mechanism is surely on their way to making their mark on the Heavy Metal scene and the world.
Their new EP entitled "Pathos" will touch new grounds for
The Antikythera Mechanism. Not only in musical technicality and experimentation but in subject matter. While their debut album dealt with subjects of human self destruction through religion, politics and one's own vice filled greed, "Pathos" speaks more to the future of our race and what impact our tiny existence has on a much greater plan for the universe. Many great things are hopeful to come from
these fresh players on a crowded field.
Mercenary born in mid-2008 in Bogotá ( Colombia ) , with the intention of
playing thrash forceful and aggressive metal where his lyrics are based on
themes that emphasize religion , war and other social factors that affect modern society corroded by ideas imposed in our heads thanks to the current media power.
The band in 2009 he recorded his first demo called The Holocaust ¨ ¨
with this work the band has the opportunity to get out of the city at different times and play some recognized the city as well be known festivals in the capital thrash metal scene.
In the year 2012 the band enters again to record what would be his
first ep called " bioterror " including 5 direct and compelling themes referring
to social criticism , as mentioned above , this ep goes to the public in early
2013 , being exhausted in no time but with the possibility to download it
through the network, and has been rotated stations Colombia and elsewhere.
Mercenary has had many influences over the years through some classic
bands like Metallica , Slayer, Exodus , Kreator , Dark Angel , Anthrax , Nuclear
Assault , among others, our musical idea remains attached to the currently
binding to thrash some musical trends more technical aspects that lead the band to explore new areas without losing the musical essence that made the metal thash out of us .

EpisThemE is a progressive-metal band born in Catania in May of 2010, thanks to an idea of the bass player Riccardo Liberti, member of the italian underground Metal bands Noble Savage, Dark Maze, Denied, Jem In Eye. The project began as a studio-project with songs written exclusively by Riccardo. The decision of a studio-project was almost forced because of the difficulties in finding musicians who could have been part of a band whose aim was also to perform live. In September 2010 Riccardo decided to propose to Daniele Spagnulo (Devouring Sorrow, Jem In Eye) to join EpisThemE. After Daniele’s arrival and after a few months, the search for a guitarist came to an end with the arrival of Francesco “Seven” Coluzzi. With this new line-up the band began to write new material, leaving behind everything that Riccardo had previously composed for the project. In the early months of 2011 EpisThemE started writing material for their first full-length. In the meanwhile they kept on seeking a singer but all this search was unsuccessful, so they decided to go on with the writing of the songs without the help of a singer, just to let the band grow and develop all the ideas. The result was a death/prog style, without missing melodic and clean parts and giving the songs particular sound and structure, all features that remind to a genre that is now called “Math-Metal”. In June 2012, EpisThemE entered the studio to record the first 5 tracks for their demo cd. In August the band recruited Valentino Valenti (Noble Savage, Mendoza, Jem In Eye) on vocals. In May 2013 Luca Correnti (Mystura, Sinoath, Inqbdimaja) replaced Valentino behind the mic. Epistheme now look forward to begin the recording sessions of what will be their debut album and continue to perform live.
