The dark metal industrialists WITCHGRINDER rose from the deepest, darkest graves of Melbourne in mid-2009. Bringing you a unique new style of terror, their music is inspired by the 80s metal sound of Metallica mixed with the strong, industrial grooves of Ministry, Rammstein and Static-X; from the classic horror/sci-fi stories that make your skin crawl, their lyrics and samples give a spooky, Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson feel to the music.

Dining In Tuscany

Dining In Tuscany formed in late 2005 and after an extensive writing period hit the studio to create a sonic representation of the bands intentions. A no nonsense approach to recording and an appreciation of frostbitten atmospherics as dictated by their contemporaries, laid way for the creation of the "post cards from coco lezzone". The EP is cacophonous and raw, it's production values lend themselves to that of old school "necro" black metal and would not disappoint fans of both modern heavy music and their forefathers.

Formed during the mid 1990's, Subtract have gone on to become one of the premier acts in New Zealand metal and true forefathers of the local heavy scene. Combining elements of metal old and new, with a penchant for punishing grooves and pummelling rhythms with charismatically aggressive vocals and passionate, meaningful lyricism, Subtract are an act that have gone from strength to strength throughout their years; never relinquishing an iota of the intensity and sheer heaviness that have become their sonic trademarks.
