Over De Bands:
Fenris, opgericht in 1997, heeft een lange historie in het combineren van bulderende vikingmetal met schroeiende black/death metal. Soms verblindend snel, soms atmosferisch, maar altijd melodisch en dynamisch. Met wortels verankerd in Noordse en Germaanse mythologieën, en sommige teksten in de moedertaal. De sfeer is die van oude volkeren, hun hoop, geloof, oorlogen en verschrikkingen. Tot nu toe zijn er drie albums uitgebracht: ‘Offerings to the hunger’ (2001), ‘Ordeal’ (2005) en ‘…en doodenakkers tot den horizon’. Het laatste album werd uitgebracht op 1 september 2016 en wordt gedistribueerd via Snakebite/ Rockinc Entertainment. In hun bestaan heeft Fenris het podium gedeeld met bands als Enslaved, Sear Bliss, Rotting
Christ, Tyr, Einherjer, SkyForger en vele anderen.
In 2015 zag Nephylim het levenslicht waarbij in Januari 2020 het lang verwachte debuut album “Severance of Severance” ten toon werd gesteld aan de wereld.
Het vooraanstaande Nederlandse metal blog “Zware Metalen” had het volgende erover te zeggen:
“De heren mogen ontzettend trots zijn op dit resultaat, want Severance of Serenity mag worden gezien als meesterwerk. Chapeau, mannen.”
Ibex Angel Order
“Hailing from the Netherworld IBEX ANGEL ORDER are a 2-piece which bring occult black metal invocations with a raw, ritualistic and hymnic vibe.”
From the ashes of Funeral Goat arises the Ibex Angel Order, a vessel for the expression of practices and magical workings by means of Occult Black Metal. In IBEX ANGEL ORDER praise is given to the driving forces behind this music, the illumination of Lucifer and the all encompassing duality of Abrasax. The union of HRRDS and LDS was forged 21 years ago and IBEX ANGEL ORDER is the ultimate culmination of this union.
2014 saw the first recording of two hymns to Abrasax, one of which has been released digitally on Bandcamp (Origin of Spheres) and the other which was planned to be featured on a Daemon Worship Productions compilation in 2015. Soon after this recording a full length (I) has been forged, recorded and set for release (on digipack and gatefold LP format) in 2015 and 2016. Ibex Angel Order’s music was spread under the black wings of Daemon Worship Productions, a most honourable label that had faith in and has supported the musical creations of HRRDS and LDS for years. Since Daemon Worship has gone defunct, Norway’s Terratur Possessions choose to take over 6 bands for the “Ekstrophë” compilation (2018) which has become an outstanding release with amazing artwork (Cold Poison) and mastering by TT of Abigor.
2019 marks the release of the I.Ô. CREATÔR / I.Ô. DESTRÔYER EP on tape and 10″ vinyl. The latter includes live bonus tracks and a remastered Funeral Goat track in honour of M. Eikenaar. The release has been a collaboration between Heidens Hart, Ván Records, Terratur Possessions and Fallen Temple.
ONHEIL entered the metal scene in 1999 and released their first demo in that same year. With another (full-length) demo in 2002, a Mini CD on a small underground label in 2003 and their rare but intense live shows the band grew their reputation in the metal underground. ONHEIL got praised for bringing a new sound to the scene with their extreme Black/Death metal and enriching that with a big dose of Iron Maiden-like melodies.
In 2007 ONHEIL formed a new line-up with three guitarists and two lead vocalists, giving the band an even more diverse sound. The band caught the attention of German metal record label CYCLONE EMPIRE releasing ONHEIL’s full-length album ‘Razor’ in 2009. ‘Razor’ was received extremely well and got high ratings by the media almost everywhere.
In 2014 ONHEIL unleashed their second album ‘Storm Is Coming’ . This ‘Storm’ contains 10 tracks of furious yet melodic metal, appealing to a wide range of metalheads. Their original mix of Black, Thrash, Heavy and Death Metal has given ONHEIL a lot of fans throughout the world (Europe, USA, South-America, even countries like Japan, Israel, Lithuania, Egypt, and Russia).
The album has taken ONHEIL’s musical style to an even higher level with its more dynamic compositions and better sounding production. ONHEIL’s recognizable harmonic guitar melodies are also still present making ‘Storm Is Coming’ a true musical adventure to listen to. The album was received even better than their previous album, reaching the ’top album’ status quite a few times and getting a lot of media attention.
These last years ONHEIL needed to make some changes in their line-up and was focused on writing new material. This resulted in the recording of a new album in the well-known ONHEIL style, yet pushing it more to the extreme. Currently the album is being mixed and mastered and is set for a release in 2022.
On stage, ONHEIL has grown into an unstoppable metal machine, where furious blast beats, headbanging heavy metal riffs and atmospheric melodic intermezzos deliver a highly energetic performance. Every show ends up in a true metal party.With the success of their two albums, ONHEIL was able to share the stage throughout Europe with bands like VADER, MAYHEM, ENTOMBED and BELPHEGOR, CANNIBAL CORPSE, AUTOPSY, WATAIN, THE DEVIL’S BLOOD, ASPHYX, NAPALM DEATH, DYING FETUS, KRISIUN, ROTTING CHRIST, and the band appeared on open air festivals such as PARTY.SAN OPEN AIR, EXTREMEFEST(in 3 countries), STONEHENGE, METAL MEAN, GAHLEN MOSHT OPEN AIR, BRUTZ&BRAKEL FEST, OCCULTFEST and ZABBADUSCHER.
