Kylesa

Since this Savannah, Georgia, United States quintet first formed in early 2001, worrying about genre limitations has never been a priority. Taking musical chances, however, always has been. While Kylesa are as heavy as any band out there, they are beholden to no one scene and no preconceived notions of what heavy music should be. "Lots of people like to stick to one kind of music," guitarist/vocalist Philip Cope elaborates, "and even with the underground, lots of people segregate themselves into small little categories and place lots of imaginary rules on these scenes."

Ornithologist

Formed in Wellington - New Zealand in 2007, Ornithologist was initially conceived in jest as one of the 2 fellow Akaname members' many hypothetical side-projects (most of which would usually get lost among the "what-if's" of hazy late night bong-theory). The crux: instrumental interpretations of birdsong - composed of the silliest imaginable guitar gymnastics played in tandem over cheesy retro drum-machine programmes; with a kink somewhere between 80's electro-pop, 90's trip-hop and all metal sub-genres conceivable; all to be performed live while adorning silly bird masks.

Crown Us Thieves

5 young lads from the South East of Melbourne trying to impact a local scene with a combination of harmonious hardcore/metal/rock. Crown Us Thieves means a direction change not only in the musical style, but in the message being put across. Having spent the last year playing shows under the name FINAL AFFLICTION, the name change is attempt to re-birth what simply was not working for the band. A lineup change meant the departure of Rico Adhitya early this year and arrival of one Peter Davies who we feel privileged to be working with.
