Pure passion with sincere dedication
Moving from the frigid land of Cleveland, Ohio to humid Florida vocalist/guitarist Deryck Heignum brought an unconquerable passion for HEAVY METAL music. He teamed up with master of the bass and studio engineer Stan Martell along with expert drummer Austin Lane and the three recorded 2015’s "A Dark Formation" under the band name Stormlurker.
The release by Stormlurker was critically acclaimed with its combination of Thrash and traditional Metal. Unfortunately, due to being under funded it never made its mark on the Metal scene the way it should of though a sonic representation is to be found here.
The three Metal maniacs got together again in 2017 under the name DUNGEON WOLF in order to record a more melodic and much more traditional album entitled "Slavery Or Steel".
Planning on a 2018 release the band asked for a couple of early reviews to create a buzz and received the following accolade from the review site Heavy Metal Time Machine:
"'Slavery Or Steel' is the cream of the crop as far as new Metal offerings are concerned! Kudos to everyone involved with DUNGEON WOLF's grade A debut!".
DUNGEON WOLF is poised to make one of the biggest explosions with a debut release that the Metal scene has seen in quite some time due to the absolute original sound, top notch songwriting and production that is second to none.

Massively atmospheric dark art
For the current album "Aeterni" the personnel-reinforced formation around Hydra Gorgonia went partly new as well as extended artistic ways. The compositions are often reminiscent of the music of Dimmu Borgir.
In the actual core, therefore, still devoted to the symphonic BLACK METAL, also sometimes bearing elements from the field Pagan Metal were included.
In particular, influences from Classical music give the new output "Aeterni" a distinctive autonomy. The fresh songs, with a thick dash of hardness, are characterized by massive dark atmosphere.
Official release date for "Aeterni" was September 9, 2017.

Longing hardened romance
The fact that the enthusiastic music of these Bulgarian big-hearts wanders directly into the soul, is due to several strengths of the exceptionally artistic minds.
METALWINGS with the classically trained frontwoman Stela Atanasova have an exquisite singer whose bell-light and beguilingly feminine, operetta-like voice stands out high from the mass of the genre. With her violin, the soulful vocalist also conjures magical moments of sound.
The hymn-melodic and epically uplifting CLASSIC SYMPHONIC METAL of the Sofia based formation combines the finest elements of classical music and the timeless world of opera.
For April 19th 2018 is planned the release of the much-anticipated debut album "For All Beyond", for which METALWINGS have been very busy since last year's autumn.

Kings will fall. Under this generalizing motto, one of the most playful, lively and explosive new THRASH METAL commands joins the scene of the genre: KINGS WILL FALL.
When drummer Lukas Gross and bassist Daniel Vanzo came together in 2013 to form a band, guitarist René Thaler joined them as well. Finally, the hungry pack was completed by shouter Fabian Jung. And this optimally functioning line-up is still valid today.
Musically, the four South Tyrolean bullies set on a raging-brutal, staccato-like brand until today. Brutal influences of death-lead get nailed in with punky-snotty wise.
On August 24, the band released their very first official music video for the song ‚Toxic War‘, which is also featured on the current longplayer "Thrash Force.One".

The memorable name of these Bulgarian MELODIC THRASH DEATH METAL command is of ancient Greek origin and literally means "fear of good".
EUFOBIA was founded 2003 and no band member has ever been replaced since, which is pretty rare to find nowadays.
These musicians are in any case a very own formation. The emphasized independent, intense sound of EUFOBIA is just as individual as interesting structured and full of variety, even in the abysmal, manic emotional passages. Every song by the guys therefore can stand completely for itself.
So far EUFOBIA have performed live more than 180 (!) times and shared the stage with well known acts such as Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, Rotting Christ, Kreator, Vader, Immolation, Onslaught, Malevolent Creation, Pyogenesis, Gorgoroth, Sinister, Broken Hope, Dragonforce, Eluveitie, Keep Of Kalessin, E-force, Negura Bunget, Suicidal Angels, as well as with many fellow underground ones.
Recently the musically and lyrically hard biting genre-hopefuls from the city of Sofia published their newest music video for the song "Graveyard":
"Graveyard" is taken out of their third, self-titled album "Eufobia", which has been published in November 2016.
Currently, EUFOBIA are writing new songs for the fourth album, which is expected to be released early 2018.

Take old school Death Metal, add a healthy dose of Groove, a pinch of Thrash and round it up with a lot of melody … and you’ll get the powerful MELODIC DEATH THRASH METAL essence of DESDEMONIA.
After years of efforts and experiences, DESDEMONIA's fourth longplayer "Anguish" is set to be released in March 2018 via Mighty Music.
Confident about their new material and with unbroken passion for the music of their roots, the four musicians recorded their material in spring/summer of 2017.
Looking for a massive sound, the band got in touch with legendary Swedish producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Hammerfall, Architects and many more). Master Nordström mixed and mastered the 9 new songs at his Master Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden and gave the album the aggressive yet clear sound it deserves.

With gigantic conviction
Since 1999, BATTLESWORD on the Lower Rhine have kept the heavy flag of MELODIC DEATH METAL resolutely high in the storm of stylistic trends and musical fashions.
With a mighty live performance and unspeakably powerful songs, the capable five-piece regularly provides extensive neck pain and happy moods among the fans.
In the camp of the authentic, because completely sincere troupe clearly is preferred class instead of mass. Since the existence of the band, therefore, only two demos and two albums have been released.
The year 2018 will continue to be characterized by ambitious creativity for BATTLESWORD.
