ROYAL THUNDER (Mlny Parsonz – bass / vocals, Josh Weaver – guitar, Jesse Stuber - drums) is a haunting rock band that lures listeners in with their dark rhythms and soulful vocals. The band formed in 2007 and self-recorded and released a seven song EP in late 2009. Royal Thunder released follow up to their self-titled debut entitled 'CVI' in the spring of 2012. The album encompasses soulful, bluesy, southern styles of music.
Combining never ending songs and a loud, relentless sound with low-end heaviness, wild psychedelic trips and doomrockin' riffs, Toner Low are one of a kind to roam the green fields of Leiden, Holland. In the first four years since their formation in 1998 these doomstoners released a couple of promos, played gigs in Holland and Belgium (2000) with among others Karma to Burn (USA), Isis, Candybar Planet and Lawn and parted with two bandmembers.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Adrift for Days are an underground stoner/doom quintet playing a diverse mix of styles described as "smoked-out psychedelic dronefuzz". The band mixes a heavily psychedelic blues-based foundation with stoner rock, doom, sludge, post-rock, post-metal and drone. They cite their influences as Earth, Jimi Hendrix, YOB, The Doors, Neurosis, Pink Floyd, Rosetta and Boris - amongst many others.
Formed in the old wastelands of witchery and paranoia, Cambridgeshire band Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats deliver the new sound of 60s terror. This popular beat combo crawled from its secluded hideout in 2009 to record their debut album, 'Vol. 1' for Killer Candy Records. With a limited release in 2010, the album was warmly received with the track 'Witches Garden' appearing on a Classic Rock Magazine cover CD. The band also drew the attention of Leif Edling from legendary doom band Candlemass, who would later recommend them to Lee Dorrian at Rise Above.

That band is known as thee mighty, electric Blood Beach.
