„Actually everything is different“ knows guitarist and songwriter Nils Tinnemeyer in Maintain to report about the second album and meets with the nail on the head in such a manner that this Mantra could be stung in addition to his other innumerable Tattoos. The five metalheads from North-Germany are already different in quite everything since their establishment in the year 1998.
Her Bright Skies have developed a distinctly modern sound, with piercing melodies, emotive vocals and an ever-rising tidal wave of fans - all on their own terms. “Causing A Scene” displays a band which has purified its sacred mission to carry your ass into a world where music is first and foremost a party – not psychoanalysis. With both feet firmly entrenched in the American tradition of melodic punk, pop and metal, Her Bright Skies have developed a way to lift themselves out of small town boredom all the while creating their own niche: energetic rock conveyed with a touch of that indefinable...

The Soulless is a UK extreme metal band, formerly known as Ignominious Incarceration... The band explains: "The band started in the pits of hell that was Sam's basement. We were just playing heavy music and having fun. When we decided on the name Ignominious Incarceration, we never anticipated the level we would get to. Had we known, I'm sure we would have chosen a simpler name. The band started to get gigs and we started to take the band way more seriously as we discovered how much fun we could have.
