1) JUST TO MAKE THINGS CLEAR: PURULENT REALITY WERE RECORDED BY M, ZOLTAN VALTER, LAJOS KOSSUTH, ROBIN EAGLESTONE, PETE CHRISTOPHER. LIVE LINEUP IS DIFFERENT: PETER D MANIAK (EX-CARBON CAGE), ZOLTAN, TIBOR PAPP, HEAVY TACT!!! SECTIONED DOING SHOWS AS A 4 PIECE UNTIL THEY FIND THE RIGHT 2ND GUITARIST FOR LIVE SHOWS!!! Sectioned was formed in 2006 by Zoltan Valter in Broadstairs, England. The goal was to play death metal the way he envisioned.
The band originated in 2007 in Kiev in the restless mind of guitarist-vocalist Math_Max, whose experiments with digging guitar and torturing his voice reached the dimensions of a mania and needed to be shared with someone. On the score of it the first 3-piece line-up was formated soon and recording debut of Joncofy was not too long to appear. The band’s 5-song self-released demo “Li(f)e?” was a really howling success. It had tons of positive replies and reviews in local and foreign music community and became kind of the quality standard for Ukrainian alternative metal bands.
All of the members of Intensive Square are from Pembrokeshire (Middle Earth), and have all shared stages in various capacities over the years, but the band as it is now formed in 2007 off the back of a shared desire to create, hear, and perform some truly devastating music. Tired of the dull conventions of contemporary metal, we decided to leave the weaklings of the genre identifying with mock pessimism and false mythology in the mirrors of their parents’ bathrooms, whilst we forged tales about abstract universes of impossible science and apocalyptic horror.
Mixing video concept and experimental metal, this band from the south of France gives birth to a sinuous atmosphere drawning between poetry and violence. "They lead us into a music so deep, at the frontier between despair and madness", "deviant and pessimistic for sure"... "the band knows no limit in composition, inventiveness, and will of perfection..." , "a real masterpiece" official website : http://www.hypno5e.com/

Rhythmic and surging, an eclectic mix of spasmodic pulses and mechanical grindings coming from the minds of a few hidden within the River City, featuring members of Empyrean, Function Cease, and Cross the Lips of Grace. Saturated in a dark and contemporary noir The Schoenberg Automaton are preparing to unleash what can only be described as a modern, devastating and violent audible assault.
