Forgotten Tomb is a black metal band formed in Piacenza, Italy in 1999 by Ferdinando "Herr Morbid" Marchisio. The band is well-known for being among the pioneers of the so-called depressive black metal subgenre. They have modified their style over the years by adding classic rock influences to the typical eerie sound. The lyrical themes of the early albums revolve mostly around depression and suicide, while the recent albums lyrics deal with negativity and nihilism.
The band was formed by guitarists Arthur "Ace" Enders (who was born on April 19th and grew up in Bass River, New Jersey, before moving to Hammonton, New Jersey) & Jim Sacco along with bassist Sergio Anello and drummer Jeff Kummer in Hammonton, New Jersey in February 2001. Together, they recorded a 5 track demo in Enders' basement and sent it, along with a poorly edited videotape to only one label: Drive-Thru Records.
There are several bands called Svalbard. 1) a metal band from Silesia, Poland 2) a martial/darkwave band from Homel, Belarus. 3) A modern melodic hardcore band wth dramatic tendencies from Bristol, UK. 1] The initial idea of this band arouse in 2004. The everchanging line-up was the main reason for the band to stay in the dark for long years. But not only are they still around, with:
Piotr (Peter) on vocals,
Clad (Dominic) on guitar,
Paj?k (Peter) on bass,
Majkel (Michael) on drums
and Kate on guitar, Svalbard is getting back on track!
For All Those Sleeping was formed in October of 2007 in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, United States. They were quick to build a name for themselves with their hard hitting verses and melodic “sing a long” choruses, which quickly reached out to fans across the Midwest. Don’t let their name deceive you, For All Those Sleeping is most definitely awake and busy. In their first year, For All Those Sleeping appeared on the widely-known Vans Warped Tour and Cornerstone Festival all before releasing their debut EP "The Lies We Live" in September of 2008.
