Artists
Psycroptic
Isolation can often result in unique outcomes. Hailing from the tiny, frosty, untamed and detached Australian state that is Tasmania, Psycroptic have become an unparalleled act in an enigmatic world wide movement commonly known as death metal. Fifteen years have passed since their formation in 1999, the band having released five critically acclaimed studio albums, all which show an organic progression along a clandestine path from which they will never stray.


On the eve of their sixth full-length, though more technical and brutally intuitive than ever, the four-piece has not been afraid to get in touch with their softer side. Long known as the ‘Tasmanian devils’, they recently became the first band in the world to adopt their own Tasmanian Devil, whom they dubbed Psycro, in an attempt to help preserve the critically endangered carnivorous marsupial. Newer elements too can be expected when the new album is finally unleashed - more vocal variation, a heightened handle on instrumental melody, and an overwhelming sense that this act has truly mastered their craft. 


Psycroptic have toured all corners of the globe with names that need no introduction to those in the know - Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Decapitated, The Faceless, Obituary, Carcass, Nile, The Black Dahlia Murder, Origin, Kataklysm, Aborted, Despised Icon, Suffocation, Veil of Maya, Cryptopsy, Misery Index, Vader, Born of Osiris, Hate Eternal… you get the picture right? They also recently guest hosted the ABC music video program Rage, an honour reserved for only the most class Australian acts. Metal legend Max Cavalera has also been sporting the band’s merch in recent promotional photos, bringing things full circle from the days when they were influenced by Sepultura in their youth. It’s safe to say that Psycroptic’s place in the history of heavy metal is solidified, and that everything that happens from here on in is simply a bonus…
 
Cannabis Corpse
Weed-themed Death Metal from Richmond, VA
Gorod
The undisputed kings of melodic tech death !*

Founded at the dawn of the 21st Century, GOROD is among the most appreciated progressive death metal bands on the current international metal scene.
Native from Bordeaux, France, GOROD released 5 albums and 2 EP who were, for each one, warmly welcomed by fans and music medias around the world, that gave the band this current fame.


GOROD is a real live act, showing impressive instruments skills and ultimate precision on stage.

The band toured Europe several times with top-notch international acts (Morbid Angel, Obscura, The Faceless, Cattle Decapitation, Immolation, Job For a Cowboy, Havoc, etc), played 2 times at Hellfest, crushed the stage at Summer Breeze OA and Brutal Assault OA, toured the USA where they played 2 times at the mighty Maryland Deathfest, and travelled there for a month as headliner of the Bloodletting North America Tour in 2013 and also toured Canada for four weeks in 2016.
It’s appearance to the biggest metal festival in South East Asia, Jakarta Hammersonnic International Festival and a Japanese Tour definitely contributed to set the band as an impressive and respected live act.

"A Perfect Absolution" (2012) is regarded as the band's masterpiece to this day showing GOROD at the top of their game. The album was voted as best French metal album of the year in France in N°1 french webzine "VS Webzine".
"A Maze of Recycled Creeds", October 16th 2015, received impressive reviews. It's not only a continuation of what the previous album offered but a further improvement in terms of production, song writing and arrangements. 

In 2017, the band was offered to tour with US Thrash Metal bands… so they decided to self release an EP in the 90’s thrash genre they pretty enjoy.
This new opus, "Kiss the Freaks" delighted thrash metal fans as well as music medias for an unanimous opinion : whatever GOROD undertakes, it makes it brilliantly!!

"Thanks to their large experience, GOROD have never sounded as strong as they do now !!"
