1) Ophidian is Conrad Hoyer, a hardcore producer from Gelderland, Netherlands. Using keyboards and cassette recorders Conrad Hoyer started recording his first songs and mixes in 1993, 11 years old (born september first 1981) at the time. By 1995 hardcore music had become very infuential for the Dutch youth and he started using computer software to write hardcore songs. With the artists of the Ruffneck label as main lead he worked on perfecting his technique, specialising in fast, breakbeat-orriented juno-sound hardcore.
Cult of Luna are a Swedish Sludge/Post-Metal band formed in 1998 in Umeå, Sweden by guitarist/vocalist Johannes Persson and vocalist Klas Rydberg. After some member hunting and rehearsals CoL had its first line-up consisting of: Klas Rydberg, Johannes Persson, Magnus Lindberg, Erik Olofsson and Fredrik Renstrom. After a short period of time, Fredrik had to leave due to some personal difficulties.
The idea to create a southern grind band that would up the ante in American grindcore came about in July 2002, exactly one day after the demise of founding members Chris Andrews and James Delgado's sludge band EOTS. Violent, blistering grind seemed like the only interesting option after wandering the destructive quagmire of slow-as-mud riffs and pummeling sound levels for a few years, learning their instruments and gaining stage experience.
"Throats don’t do sing-a-longs. They don’t do melodies. They don’t do harmonies. In fact, the young quintet barely do songs. Instead they prefer to carve acidic hardcore from riffs that do both razor speed and steamroller intensity and a rhythm section that rumbles like an exploding airliner." "Hardcore really does not get any more brittle or intense right now..." Hitting the stage like a knife to the jugular, they produce a rhythmically pounding, relentless set, which sweeps you away with them.
There are multiple bands named Resin. 1) A grindcore / noise band 2) Without knowing a bunch of bands named Resin already existed, the duo of Joel D'amour and Matt Pacey (aka Forkimified) from Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada used the name during highschool. They played mostly lo-fi acoustic and grunge songs, with the occasional electric guitar noise collage. They are now known as Lemon Scented Shotgun.
Although Evil Activities nowadays 'officially' consists only of Kelly van Soest (after Telly Luyks left the group in 2003) Two new members have joined this project:
- Michael Kramer (alias DJ Dazzler) -> MC
- Niels van Hoeckel (alias Chaosphere) -> Keyboard
However, they are only part of the live-act crew (during performance on stage). In the studio, Evil Activities is only Kelly van Soest.
Kelly is also better known as Max Enforcer in the hardstyle scene.
