Decapitated
Decapitated
Death Metal group from Poland. A gifted group of young musicians who formed in their early teens. The band's average age during their debut album Winds Of Creation was just 17. Decapitated surprised many of their peers with their incredibly mature and forward thinking sound.

After finishing a tour for their third album The Negation in 2005, singer Sauron (3) decided to leave the group under amicable circumstances. The rest of the band members decided to recruit singer Covan, previously of Atrophia Red Sun. With their new singer in place, Decapitated released Organic Hallucinosis in 2006.

On November 2nd, 2007, while on tour in Russia, the band experienced a car accident which claimed the life of drummer Vitek, and seriously injured singer Covan, who is still recovering from those injuries.

Since the band were without a permanent bass player at the time, Vogg was left as the only member of Decapitated. He temporarily joined Vader in 2008, but later that year decided to reactivate Decapitated. The band finally reformed in 2009 with three new members, Kerim Lechner (aka Krimh) on drums, Rafał Piotrowski on vocals and Filip Hałucha (aka Heinrich) on bass guitar. Hałucha later left the band in 2011 after the release of 'Carnival Is Forever'.
Thy Art Is Murder
Thy Art Is Murder
Australia's incendiary extreme musical export THY ART IS MURDER, return with one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Produced and mixed by Will Putney (SUICIDE SILENCE, EXHUMED, THE ACACIA STRAIN), "Holy War" is the band's second release for Nuclear Blast Entertainment and third full-length album overall.  

"Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to 'Hate', free of expectation and public pressure," explains guitarist Andy Marsh. "What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive. Musically it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we've done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course it wouldn't be a THY ART record if a lot of those affairs weren't rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album 'Holy War'. This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men."

"Holy War" will be available in various formats (digital; limited digi-pak + bonus track; assorted color vinyl; exclusive mail-order picture disc) and unleashed in North America on June 30th, in Europe & Australia on June 26th, and in the U.K. on June 29th.  

Rising from the unhallowed wastes of Western Sydney, THY ART IS MURDER successfully cleaved a trail of blood & mayhem since their inception in 2006. With the acclaimed Infinite Death EP (2008) and  their debut album The Adversary (2010) firmly establishing their name in the global metal music scene, the band has traversed highways & autobahns all around the world, playing 342 tour dates alone in support of their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, Hate (2012), which debuted at #35 on the Top 40 Aria chart - the highest chart debut of any Australian extreme metal band.  

Known for their tireless work ethic, THY ART IS MURDER performed at Summer Slaughter 2014 & 2013, headlined their own "Hate Across America" tour in 2013, and supported both EMMURE and BORN OF OSIRIS in 2014, playing throughout the U.S. more times in a two-year period than any other Australian band in any genre of music.  

Fallujah
Fallujah
Fallujah has since evolved to be one of those most aspiring and respected SF Bay area bands. The band evolved once again both musically and lyrically with songs concerning Satanism, religious fundamentalism, secret societies, nature, and social fallacies.
Ghost Bath
Ghost Bath
5-piece Black metal band from Minot, North Dakota - initially gaining notoriety for claiming to be from Chongqing, China and marketing themselves that way. Ghost Bath writes and creates under the assumption that music is an extension of one's own soul, to the extend that the band members have opted to not reveal any details about themselves and remain both anonymous (routinely using the Chinese adjective 无名 to define themselves as one blurred entity, which translates into "nameless" or "obscure") and faceless; even scratching off their faces from their promotional pictures for good measure. The press somewhat dampened the desired effect by eventually revealing that the band's frontman was actually named Dennis Mikula.
