BIOGRAPHY: Founded in 2005, Spearhead recorded their debut offering Deathless Steel Command in mid-2005 - an assault of belligerent chaos and hatred, released through Invictus Productions in 2006. Following the 2006 promo EP When the Pillars Fall, Spearhead entered Hertz Studio (Poland) in the Summer of 2007 to record the second full-length, the highly-acclaimed Decrowning the Irenarch - a monument of imperious, martial death metal war, testifying to the eternal truths of the warrior tradition, released again under the blood-soaked banner of Invictus Productions in December 2007. The intervening years saw Spearhead destroy stages on the 2008 European tour with Impiety and the 2009 US tour with Urgehal, together with a large number of European festival appearances, including Inferno, Hells Pleasure, and SWR Festival amongst others. In 2010 Spearhead entered Orgone Studios (London) to record the third full-length, Theomachia: The Doctrine of Ascension and Decline, released in April 2011 by Agonia Records. By far the most violent, hostile, and unrelenting Spearhead release to date, Theomachia is a bloody proclamation of the cyclical nature of time and the path of war in the winter of civilisation. Surrender to the swift advance of death or perish by the sword of all-devouring time... Svpero Omnia!

BIOGRAPHY Aktiv Dödshjälp was formed in 2004 by Tomas Nilsson who recently had been introduced to Swedish crust sound. Being overthrown by this new world of extreme music he felt an urge to create a band to explore this new dimension in music. After several demos, complication albums and a split 7" had been released the majority of the band decided to quite due to the lack of interest, this was in 2006. Tomas soon recruited new members to the band and wrote the band's first fullenght album, 4:48 which saw the light of day in the middle of 2007. On this album he focused on mixing crustcore a lot with black metal and death metal elements. In 2009 Tomas recruited Roberth Karlsson (also known from his work in Scar Symmetry and Facebreaker) to sing on the forthcoming Aktiv Dödshjälp album. By this time Tomas felt that he had explored most of the crustcore sound and started to experiment a lot more with hardcore elements in the songs. The previous tours done with Devian had also affected Tomas way in writing songs. In 2010 the second fullenght album, Men allting har ett slut, was released and soon got a lot of attentions in Sweden. Aktiv Dödshjälp 2011
BALFOR was formed in November 1997 in a small town in eastern Ukraine, as a side project of Thorgeir - vocal/bass/guitar, and guitarist Svart, to play fast, but melodic, Black Metal. The band released their first album "Volki Severa" in 2001, and, following a number of personnel changes, and encouraged by the positive reviews the LP received, Thorgeir decided to concentrate all his energies on BALFOR and develop the band further. Berowar came in on bass in November 2005 and the two formed the core of what BALFOR was to become.
Defining their music as "Barbaric Black Metal" in tribute to the history of their homeland, BALFOR released their four-track promo "Pure Barbaric" for free download via a net label in 2006; a move that proved to be extremely successful in terms of raising the band's profile and garnering a substantial following throughout the world. BALFOR's fan bases, and reputation, were further increased by various live and festival appearances.
BALFOR today? With the release of the new album "Barbaric Blood", it is obvious that founder Thorgeir has developed into a charismatic front man who is able to switch from aggressive black, to soaring melodic clean vocals with consummate ease, whilst BALFOR's effortless ability to cross the melodic/black/death/extreme metal genres draws to them a diverse range of fans. "Barbaric Blood" is definitely one of the defining moments in BALFOR's career.
BIOGRAPHY: "BELPHEGOR - MUSICK SATHAN ART since 1993"
BELPHEGOR have risen to icon status when it comes to supreme death / black metal art! Ever since their now legendary debut "The Last Supper" in 1995 mainman Helmuth and his henchmen have continuously worked all their way to the top with technical skill, sophisticated songwriting and highly blasphemous lyrics! After releasing "Walpurgis Rites -- Hexenwahn" in 2009, BELPHEGOR are now back with their fourth masterpiece for Nuclear Blast Records: enter "Blood Magick Necromance", an opus filled to the brim with dark and sinful anthems showing a band clearly at its career peak. The eight new compositions are simply the most brutal, elegant, epic and gripping material we`ve heard from BELPHEGOR so far! The production comes from none other than legendary studio wizard and HYPOCRISY head honcho Peter Tägtgren, who gave the typical BELPHEGOR sound a cutting and ultra-heavy yet crystal clear edge. Frontman Helmuth comments: "This will be the most epic and monumental BELPHEGOR Werk to date!" Mark his words!
BIOGRAPHY In the darkest abyss of chaos where time and space are impenetrable, Black Altar came into existence. It took its earthly shape during blasphemous Sabbath in the Night of Walpurgia Anno Bastardi 1996, when it was summoned by the voice of Shadow. He, as the first guardian of Black Altar, have started an unholy crusade, thus awaking fear and pain among the hypocritical and hideous christian lambs. The first stroke into their rotten system of values was a demo entitled "Na Uroczysku..." which gained a special recognition among several groups of listeners. It was recorded by Shadow in 1997 at Selani Studio with the help of Doc, Vader's drummer, in the role of a music engineer and drumS programming. Released under Shadow's own label - Odium Rec., the first issue of 500 copies was sold out rapidly, making the name of Black Altar very popular in Poland and in other countries as well. Where were many musicians involved, however none of them stayed long because they could not meet Shadow's high musical and ideological requirements. The turning-point came in the end of 1999 when two new musicians, who just like Shadow had shown boundless devotion to the Black Metal Art, joined the band. In December 2000 a new, long-awaited EP entitled "Wrath ov the Gods" was recorded. Although all the compositions included were rather old, this record presented a new and more full-fledged face of the band. The EP was released in 2002, once again, by Odium Rec., this time as a limited to 666 copies hand-numbered with blood split CD with promising band Vesania. In 2003 Odium Rec. re-released "Wrath of the Gods" in the form of limited to 500 copies, hand-numbered with corpse blood, 7" EP. In September 2003 at Selani Studio Black Altar recorded their debut album entitled "Black Altar". It was a great improvement in the development of the band. All the compositions show an enormous potential of Black Altar. The new hymns are still more extreme and more technical. They reveal the unknown regions of Black Metal - an Art destined for the privileged. "Black Altar" was mixed and mastered at Studio X. For the track "Fire ov Immortal Self" a professional video was recorded. In April 2004 the material is released in the form of CD and a gate-fold LP by the German Christhunt Productions. Odium Rec. releases a limited to 666 copies hand-numbered with corpse blood cassette version of "Black Altar". After releasing the debut album Shadow parts with his musicians and as of that moment Black Altar became a one-man band. In 2006 WarKult Prod from Peru released remastered version of Black Altar "Wrath ov the Gods" (with 4 bonus tracks) as split,slip case cd, with Nebular Mystic (Nor).
In October 2006 Black Altar finished, at very good Studio X, record session of their second album called "Death Fanaticism". It's a killer Black Metal Holocaust! This unholy Masterpiece ov Black Art was unleashed as cd in March 2008 under the wings of Odium Rex and as gatefold Lp version by Antichristian Front Rec from Spain.
In July 2010 Black Altar recorded tracks for mini album “Suicidal Salvation” and for split Black Altar/Varathron/Thornspawn. In January 2013 Black Altar / Varathron / Thornspawn split was finally unleashed by Odium Records as jewel case cd version, as a deluxe gatefold vinyl limited to 350 copies on black and to 150 copies on clear vinyl by Floga Rec/Hellsfire Rec from Greece.
