Fairyland

French symphonic power metal band created by Philippe Giordana and Willdric Lievin in 2000. They chose Elisa C. Martin (ex-Dark Moor, Dreamaker) for the vocals. In 2003, Willdric and Elisa left to create a new band (Hamka), so they picked Max Leclercq (Magic Kingdom) as new singer. Following the release of their first demo, Tribute to Universe, their basic metal style began evolving into something more fantastic and symphonic, to which their second demo, Realm of Wonders, attests.

Holyhell

“Dramatic, emotional and epic!” HolyHell’s eponymous, full-length Magic Circle Music debut evokes such a visceral response that Andreas Schöwe in Germany’s Rock It! magazine calls it “dark, mystic, melodic rock with classical appeal of the utmost grace! Dio flirts with Nightwish.” With an endorsement like that, something truly wicked this way comes… The thirteen song concept album taps into the dichotomy of its namesake, as HolyHell explore, both lyrically and musically, the eternal struggle between darkness and light, life and death, evil and divine.

Skyward

The whole story began in the year 2000. It was just another alcohol-fueled Friday night, and after a while the boys (Ville and Sakke) decided that the world needs another melodic metal band. There can never be enough those around. And since they had been playing in bands practically all their lives, they felt that this should be a piece of cake. After all,how hard can it be to form a band? A rehearsal was scheduled.
