Stray Dog Strut - Dance For Science EP (2014)

Stray Dog Strut
is a South Australian alternative metal band. A three piece fusion of Metal, Funk and Punk. After 6 years and a stack of live shows, Stray Dog Strut have finally completed their debut EP and are preparing to release their 6 track effort in November. A massive launch party is planned for early December.

What do Stray Dog Strut sound like? Every song is a unique experience. But unmistakable bass grooves, catchy rhythms and twisted lyrics are at the heart of each lovingly crafted track. Stray Dog Strut pride themselves on no two songs being alike while each still retaining the signature SDS sound.


Rob Soppitt - Bass, Vocals 
Joel Goreham - Guitar, Vocals
Shane Schultz - Drums

Methane - Southern Metal EP (2014)

"Ass kicking Metal!" - Chris Forbes  - MetalCore Fanzine
"If you’re into thrash metal like Pantera, Slayer, and Signs of the Southern Cross, you’re going to really dig these guys’ sound." -Metal Valkyrie Webzine.
"Methane’s “Southern Metal” have slow but heavy sound and rhythm to them that just make them catchy to anyone who can enjoy that kind of music. "
8 of 10 star (excellent) review from Metal-Temple .com

Methane is a four piece Southern Metal band from Sweden. Formed by Tim Scott former bassist of (Revenant - Nuclear Blast and Hateplow - Arctic/Pavement feat. Members of Cannibal Corpse) and Jimi Masterbo former ( Hell Patrol guitarist ) along with Tim's brother ,Dylan Campbell ,and Andreas Strom on drums.  
Methane formed in the fall of 2012 when Dylan moved to Sweden. Tim contacted Jimi with the idea of moving away from death metal towards a more progressive style of metal music. The three members started sharing ideas and influences, writing metal songs with country overtones on a heavy Pantera-esque groove. Andreas was brought in to help the writing and quickly became a permanent cog in the Methane machine. 

Methane confirms headlining spot for Sweden's Metal Inferno Festival.  
Methane will be headlining Friday December 5th at the 2 day Metal Inferno Festival in Kramfors Sweden at  Bollsta Folkets Hus. The southern metal quartet is returning from thier U.S. mini tour and finishing 2014 in Scandinavia. 
The Metal Inferno Festival is a yearly fund raising benifit for "The Hero's House" a foundation that supports the families of children who have been hospitalized with longterm illness and The Childrens Cancer fund. The festival hopes to generate 100 000 SEK this year for donation. 
"This is a killer welcome home and to be asked to play for such a worthy cause is an honor. I hope to see die hard rattleheads and beardbangers out in full support!" Said Tim Scott in a statement to the press. Methane recently released a music video for the song 'Hang Me High' which can be seen on Youtube.

A2aThoT - Gestalt (2014)

A2aThoT (pronounced “azathot”) is a one-man band from Italy. Not only he records every instruments and vocals (except for some guests), he's also recording, mixing, and engineering everything. This "self-production statement" wants to remind to everyone that you don't need so much to make music, as long as you truly feel it inside of you.
In 2012, A2aThoT published his first, self-produced album (“A2aThoT”), available on his official website. In August 2012, he release a metal cover of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, a sort of parody of this famous song.It's only for YouTube users, and it's not available in any form apart from the video. It reaches more than 1000 views in a matter of few weeks, with no promotion at all except A2aThoT himself.

In late 2012/early 2013, he starts recording new material, better oriented for the real A2aThoT sound, that will be featured in the EP, “Trust Your Ear”, published in March 2013 with Pure Steel Promotion. The EP is a complete mix of Doom Metal, Psychedelic Music, with a great taste for experimental things. The sound is deep, dark, and will take you down, below the growling vocals (usually dubbed with clean ones), but always with a touch of melody and melancholic clean parts. Basically, a creepy atmosphere with a gentle touch of sadness. The feedbacks are very good, and the record gets a lot of reviews and articles from many websites (MetalItalia, In Your Eyes, Metal1, Greek Rebels, Blackened Horde, Italia di Metallo, Stormbringer, Focus On
Metal, etc.) and magazines (Rock Hard, Burst, etc.) along with a good work from web radios (Metal-FM, Music-Is-Life, etc.).

In 2014 a new record is ready: “Gestalt”, self-published and promoted. More electronic and psychedelic, now doom metal is not the biggest part of A2aThoT's sound. Influences from Depeche Mode, Anathema, Telefon Tel Aviv, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd, Neurosis, and many more, can be found in the songs that design a claustrophobic, anxious, nervous atmosphere.

The Rockford Heroes - Edge of the Silverthorn (2013)

"Edge of the silverthorn" awarded as 4th best album in 2013 by Rockeyez.com
“A nice mix of 70’s hard rock, NWOBH and pomp”. That’s how
Kaj Roth on the blog Roth’n’Roll described this release in a
post. And it’s a very good summary. The drummer Marcus
would probably like to add “AOR” to the description as well.
The music is a mix of a lot of genres, and for each listener
there will probably be another word in the “A nice mix of...”
The Rockford Heroes have previously released to EP:s,
“Light scares” (2011) and “The White EP” (2012). But have
got a lot of good reviews, people seem to enjoy this kind of
music. “It sounds like you picked the best part from hard rock
and heavy metal” was one of the first judgements and e.g.
Sweden Rock Magazine did an interview which was pub-
lished in the november issue 2012.

Musicwise it’s exactly what you should expect from The
Rockford Heroes
, the unexpected. Listen and enjoy! All mu-
sic are available for free on the homepage, but also on most
other services people use, like iTunes, Spotify and so on.
The Rockford Heroes is a pretty new band on the scene,
but the members are not. Jonas have previously released two
critically acclaimed albums with VII Gates, Erik have played
with both Guns’n’Roses and Iron Maiden tribute bands and
Marcus plays with some other projects, like Reach (with
members from e.g. Houston) and Titan. Dan have studied
on MI and is a very good singer

Jonas Arvidsson - Guitars & keyboards, 
Dan Hultstrand - Vocals, 
Erik Carlsson - Bass, 
Daniel Bergström - Drums
