It started with a band called In Grief who went under the genre "Atmospheric Extreme Metal". In Grief was a band consisting of six members, including keyboard/synth. Early in 2011 The bassist, Tobias Odmundson, and the keyboardist, Daniel Sandvik, left the band, which was a very big loss for them. But In Grief didn't quit the band or stop playing. Instead they continued playing and writing music. This time they wanted to go a new way.
Temudjin, based in the south east of England, started as an idea, early 2010 and evolved (slowly) into a 2 piece progressive metal band. Influenced by the likes of TesseracT and Born Of Osiris right the way through to Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree.
A demo is well in the works and will be headed your way shortly.
For now, there are a selection of songs available on the band's facebook page and their soundclick page.
Temudjin are currently looking for like minded musicians in hopes to expand from a 'project' to a full touring band.
Close In Sight is a solo-project by C. Gygax from Switzerland. His music connects the heavyness of metal with smooth violins and symphonic orchestras in a new way.
Every instrument has been played by himself (drums, guitars, bass, synthesizers).
Subversion (Rogue Records America) Subversion is a five-piece Melodic Tech Metal band based in London / Kent, UK.
Originating from the mind of Kai Giritli (guitars, clean vocals) in 2008, Subversion is a 5 piece melodic tech metal band from Kent in the UK.
Utilising hard hitting frontmanship from Jay Shields, Kai’s soaring hook filled clean vocals, guitar riffs that sway from heavy groove to epic melody, and the laser tight percussion of Ben Atkinson; Subversion like to dabble in the arts of odd time signatures spliced with huge thought inducing soundscapes.
Xerath represent the cutting edge of British heavy metal. Combining monumental orchestral arrangements with bone shattering riffs on an epic scale, this outfit delivers the most forward thinking brand of progressive metal music.
Since 2007 Xerath have evolved from experiments combining orchestral compositions and extreme metal to a fully-fledged recording and touring line up with their first album “Xerath I” receiving critical acclaim across the board. Xerath ‘I’ was unanimously received by European press as a technical revolution in experimental heavy metal.
