*Gloomy Grim*

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

It all began in 1984 as Hellstorm, one of the first black metal bands in Finland. Vocalist Agathon wanted to create dark music, music from the depth of the Darkest Pit of Hell and with no compromises from any other band members. Agathon started Gloomy Grim as a one-man band, but after the music evolved, he took more members under his wings. Latest full lenght album, “Under The Spell Of The Unlight” (2008) showed that Gloomy Grim is still The Leader of “Horror Metal” scene. Gloomy Grim has never been dead, it has just hibernated and waited for right time to attack. The Time Is Now! New album out 2016!

So far Crib45 has released two albums “Metamorphosis” 2009, “Marchint Through the Borderlines” 2014 and one EP “The Ghosts Among Me” 2009. While most of the bands in the genre has gone to explore more mellow and artistic paths, Crib45’s music lies heavily on the doomier and the more intense heavier side of the genre. So far Crib45 has performed in all the biggest venues in Finland and toured around europe as well and played side by side with some of the bigger names of the alternative metal genre, like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Anathema, Killing Joke, At The Gates, Dirge, Callisto, Before The Dawn, Black Sun Aeion etc.

With their latest album “Marching Through the Borderlines” (released by Symbolic Records Finland and german Supreme Chaos Records) Crib45 sold out their album from the biggest national record store chain’s every store on the first week, except for two cities in Finland. After touring Finland, Crib45 headed towards their european tour, that took them succesfully to 10 different countries, everywhere from the Baltics to UK and ending in Bergen, Norway at Blastfest 2015, where they ended up being one of the most buzzed and talked about bands that stole the light from many of the bigger names on that evening. After the tour, due to lineup changes, surgery and family reasons, Crib45 has been performing only on few very selected gigs, but now is ready to come back with a storm, stronger than ever.

*Mojo Waves*

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Finland is known for all its extremes – from a steaming hot sauna to the freezing cold winter. This also goes for the music, as Finnish have a taste for the extreme in culture too – making it one of the heavy metal capitols of the world. But now it’s time for something extreme in the field of rock music: Mojo Waves.

Mojo Waves is a three piece rock band hailing from Vantaa, Finland. Their distinctive sound can be tracked down to the day. It’s made out of pure love for the classic rock era, but forged in the fire of the music scene of the modern day Finland. It’s adrenaline filled, thundering, groovy and loud. There isn’t any other band with a similar sound, and now we’re offering you a chance to hear their latest release, the second full length album called “All The Right Parts Fit The Wrong Way.”

Mojo Waves – All The Right Parts Fit The Wrong Way out now!

Listen to the album on Spotify

PRESS CLIPPINGS:

”…Mojo Waves released the first single 7×7 for their new album All The Right Parts Fit The Wrong Way. It promised a lot, just like the album title. And holy mother of God, do they deliver!” (Stoner Hive)

”The term “swag” is a popular buzzword amongst millennials right now. However, after listening to this album, many will think to themselves “Who needs swag when you’ve got Mojo.” (No More Division)

”…if the great songs on their debut are any indication, this young band will be big.” (Heavy Planet)

”It’s impossible to pigeonhole this band into a specific genre – the band themselves have said they don’t restrict themselves to one genre! – but their distinctive style just works.” (Soundscape Magazine)

”Looking at the past many bands have taken their spin on the genre to the extreme and they have ended up creating important chapters in the history of Rock. Will Mojo Waves? In the meantime, don’t miss the opportunity to hear them.” (NanoBot Rock Reviews)

*Resolution 13*

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

“R13” got started in 2010 as a project of Marko “Dallas”Lehtinen, Tony Buckman and Nico “Hardtone” Hartonen. The band is forged of experienced musicians from well known and respected bands and projects on Finnish grounds, like Godsplague,The Black League, Grendel, Dimebag Beyond Forever and underground stoner rock band Dope Tribe Devils.The crew recorded its first promo material in 2011, which includes 4 songs. Two of them (“Hellboy” and “Rainy Days”), which got a place on the band`s debut album. Another song called “New Year” from this early demo release was chosen to be the subject of R13 ́s first music video, which was a “do it yourself” project and can be streamed from Youtube.

Resolution 13’s music and sound is hard, down tuned guitar riffs, ultra low bass frequencies, supersonic synths, a war battalion like drumming and vocals from hard growling, note screaming to clean, pure vocal work. What this band offers is to be a good hard smashing live band -an overdose of both hard-heavy and beautiful harmonies inindustrial-like music.

*The Purifiction*

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

In Finland, we have a long and hard winter but the most beautiful summer that you can’t find anywhere else in the world. When the blizzard slashes your face like a knife, it toughens you. It grows a metal core into your heart! It’s the reason we have so many heavy metal bands in Finland. On the other hand, when the summer starts to show it’s beauty, it lightens your soul. Summer is the state where all of those melodies arise.

We grew up listening to the shameless American traditional rock bands and as we grew older, the heavier bands we loved. Upon entering the 21st century, the metal genre was turning conservative and we wanted to experiment if there was something new to be discovered that would translate more into what we felt inside. In the bleak city of Riihimäki, in 2008 we teamed up to form a band The Purifiction.

Our first self-titled album sounded inspirational, but it was audible that the band was still in the process of searching for its personality. The band was on hiatus for a short period after we lost our drummer to the world of business, but through coincidence we were able to turn a new chapter after a true metalhead Olli Lehvonen joined the band as our new drummer. On our sophomore album ‘Unquiet’ we truly found our identity as our music ventured towards a more aggressive approach following the grim winter we had in Finland 2014. We invested a lot of time in creating more melody as our producer challenged us to dig deeper. Our style can be characterized as progressive metalcore.

The album ‘Unquiet’ is a typical example of home-made production popular in today’s music business climate. The whole album is recorded at our “bare bone” rehearsal room, and the mixing was done by our producer at his home office. The quality of the album boiled down to our talent, vision and the songs themselves. After all the challenges and hard work in 2014-2015, ‘Unquiet’ turned out to be an album to be exited about! We hope it would grow a layer of metal into your heart too!

The Purifiction is:
Olli Lehvonen, Drums
Teppo Tirkkonen, Vocals
Pasi Toukola, Bass
Junnu Vuorela Rocks
Topi Vuorela, Guitars

*Amoth*

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Progressive heavy metal from Helsinki, Finland, Amoth continues to pave their own path with their new album “Revenge”, just like they did with their previous albums “Crossing Over” and “Wounded Faith” (EP). So you can expect blazing guitar solos, unique rhythms, high pitched vocals and some supreme drumming skills. But Amoth has another side too, which is somewhat dark, cool, mellow and melancholic. So fasten up your seat belts and enjoy the rollercoaster ride!
