dreamshade

The new wave of melodic death metal is coming from Switzerland, a country which never gave birth to any important act of this genre before. Dreamshade's upcoming album "What Silence Hides" will be a breath of fresh air and is going to stand out among the others thanks to it's new and unique sound: a mixture of guitar solos and melodies which will reach your emotions, in-your-face rithmics able to make you headbang and break your neck, incredibly technical drums, atmospheric keyboards, ripping screams and growls.

Blasted

After sharing the stage in East Europe with Pro-Pain and Zuul FX, Blasted release their first full-length, “ALCHEMY”. Produced by themselves, “Alchemy” packs plenty of energy and neck-breaking riffs and hopefully would drive you nuts! Their way quite impressively evolved since the story began in 2000, in Martigny (CH) when Yomgui (bass) joined Nico (guitar) and Simon (drums). Their common love for heavy sounds blended with ultimate grooves inspired them to composing their own songs, trying to fill the gap between Pantera and Machine Head.
