Semblant Formed in the year of 2006 in Curitiba/PR, the Brazilian band Semblant has structured itself after a few line-up changes and is considered nowadays as one of the most important bands of Dark/Gothic Metal in the country, classified by the specialized media as one of the first Vampiric Metal’s band in Brazil. Despite the characterizations, it is impossible to label the sound of the band, presenting an extremely heavy sound (lead by two seven strings guitars and fast and precise drumming), besides the versatility on the vocals. With basis on their own identify and compositions, Semblant has already in five different Brazilian states promoting their songs and, continually, disseminating with extreme success their albums.

Crucified Barbara

Crucified Barbara Raw, hyper-commercial heavy metal songs mix knuckleduster brutality with the spiteful caress of pointy painted fingernails. The comparisons might be facile but we’re gonna make ’em anyway: this is Runaways crossed with Motörhead; Cherie Currie cavorting with Lemmy Kilmister; Joan Jett jiving with ‘Fast’ Eddie… and we can’t even begin to tell you what Jackie Fox is up to.

From Ashes to New

From Ashes to New are from Lancaster, Pennsylvania where it is the sort of town of which there are many hundred all across America: post-industrial, blue collar and, on occasion, more than a little bleak. As is so often the case though, it is in these relative backward towns that authentic, compelling creativity truly thrives – the monotony of the landscape punctuated by brilliant flares of art. FROM ASHES TO NEW are one such flare; a thoroughly modern rock band wielding both a state-of-the-art sound and an old-as-the-hills work ethic.

Formed barely two years ago by vocalist, programmer and creative mastermind Matt Brandyberry, the sextet consists of the cream of Lancaster’s underground scene. “We have all played with each other in old bands and other projects,” explains Brandyberry. “And when those things stalled or fell apart, the guys who wanted to take things a little more seriously began to gravitate toward FATN. It all came together incredibly organically and we clicked almost instantaneously. It was a real ‘Aha!’ moment, like this was the band we should have been in all along.”

Buried Cities

Buried Cities was formed in 2010 as a five piece hardcore band named Revenants. In their first year they came out swinging and released a heavy hitting six-song EP and a video for the track ‘Pirate Nights’ and they arrived on the Austin punk scene with fury. Footage from the CD release show was cut up and made into a music video for the song ‘Freedom Music’. Although their EP was well received, Allen (vocals) left the band shortly after the release. As a four-piece, their sound shifted from guitar driven hardcore to vocal based melodic sing-a-long anthems and Dylan and Johnny took over vocal duties full time and Avi and Eric remained on bass and drums. In 2013, the band released their debut self-titled full-length album and officially changed their name to Buried Cities. Following the release, the band continued to gain momentum and local support and in 2015 they hit the studio again to record their sophomore album ‘The Good Fight’. ‘The Good Fight’ was released on Drunken Ship Records in 2016 along with a 7′ split with New York hardcore band Fake Hooker and was accompanied by their first European tour and the release of DIY video for the title track ‘The Good Fight’.

Be Under Arms

Be Under Arms formed at the beginning of 2013 by vocalists Anna and Vladimir, EP “Way of the bullet” was immediately recorded, and then in September 2013 come out single «Panem et Circenses. In 2014 they released their first full-length album “Let shots will be your music”. The material undergoes some changes, and in April 2015 recorded EP “Locked and Bound”. Their second full-length album Doomed To Life was released in March 2016. Style of Be Under Arms combines Groove Metal, Metalcore, Hardcore and Melodic death metal. The concept of the band represents a unique atmosphere of old westerns combined with steampunk and modern urbanized world. They are combined melodic and measured and intertwined with hurricane rhythms and heavy riffs. Male and female vocals complement each other and take us forward fury scorched prairies , where the hand can only handle a gun.
