Braid is an American band from Urbana, Illinois that formed in 1993. After forming, the band went through several line-up changes but eventually settled on Bob Nanna on vocals and guitar, Todd Bell on bass, Chris Broach on guitar and vocals and Roy Ewing on drums. Roy was replaced in 1997 by Damon Atkinson. In 1999 Braid disbanded and went on to form Hey Mercedes with all band members minus Chris Broach (who went on to form The Firebird Band) and adding Mark Dawursk. The band reformed for a US tour in 2004 and, now that Hey Mercedes are defunct, apparently intend to tour sporadically.

From Ireland... 'mojoFURY'. The perfect moniker for the feisty, frisky rock of the Lisburn quartet. Their devastating sonic attack of bass, guitars and drums annihilating audiences with their loud, yet melodic sound. A four headed rock beast with a voracious appetite for heavy riffs, pounding drums and thumping bass lines, mojo fury will chew you up and spit you out, yet make you happy they did so. the tearing rasp of nirvana is coupled with the tight industrialism of NIN to form a perfectly honed rock animal.

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/
There are at least five artists called Brutus: - 1, a hardcore band from Asturias, Spain. Formed in June 2008, Brutus gave their first show one month later. From then onwards Brutus has released a self-titled EP in July 2009, recorded at KTC Domestic Productions which was presented in numerous places, mainly in the north of Spain, sharing stage with bands like For the Glory or Avenues and Silhouettes.

Conceived in March of 2008 in Canterbury, Delta Sleep was driven by a desire to create fun and original, forward-thinking music. Made of self-taught and honest musicians, their songs are as complex as they are catchy. Their music combines guitar driven melodies, held together by jazz influenced percussion and relentless bass, topped with sprinkles of left-field electronica. To coin Delta Sleep’s sound is a hard task indeed, but has once been described by a wise old man as an “enchanted battle between At The Drive-In and Mogwai for the city of Radiohead in the land of Aphex Twin”.
