Choking Victim was an American punk band from 1992 to 1999, formed in New York City. The band became notable around "C-squat," in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where they squatted and continue to inhabit and organize shows for their music, which blended ska punk with black metal, and anarchist lyrics. They also became known for Satanic imagery and numerous references to the vagrant lifestyle, such as crack-smoking, shoplifting, and squatting. They also, like many other bands in the punk scene, have violent anti-police sentiments in their songs.
An intense blend of galloping rhythms, intelligent melodies and vocals that flow from touching harmonies to savage screams epitomise Guildford-based five piece Without Thought. The quintet's technical ability combines with heartfelt lyrics to create an edgy, aggressive sound - mixing the brutal intensity of hardcore acts like Give Up The Ghost with Jimmy Eat World-style melodies and quiet sections comparable to Explosions in The Sky.
Poisonblack is the new band of ex Sentenced singer Ville Laihiala. It started out as a side project as Ville wanted to play guitar so he decided to create his own band and project.

This album followed more or less the themes and the musical direction of Sentenced.
Formed in 2008, Zero Pilot comprise a direct link from the alt-rock scene that proved popular in the 90s with overtones of thrashy, grunge-metal and raging melody commonly associated with the more recent post-hardcore movement. Brought together from performance heavy backgrounds they have the credentials that can only be achieved by slogging it out in small venues and busting their asses to get heard. Enjoy
