Foreshadow, is a musical group that blends the core genres of death metal, black metal, old school thrash metal, to create their own, unique sound, has begun to deliver a plethora of lyrical and melodic genius to the world, foretelling the turn of this generations appreciation of raw music and solid performances.
Reigning from their infamous hometown of Tampa, Florida, Foreshadow uses their vocal and instrumental influences to comment heavily upon the lies that have enveloped as truth amongst the general population.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Spyder Studios in Cleveland, OH, with producer Tony Gamalo.

The album will be released to fans and fellow listeners independently, and will deliver the group's ideas and collective beliefs that are saturated in a sense of self-empowerment and individuality.

Power Theory

Power Theory was founded and formed by Bob Ballinger and the early line up included Charlie Gallagher on bass after Bob and Charlie disbanded Night Myst. Even though they generated some local buzz, the early line up was short lived because not all members understood the vision of what was to become.

In order to strengthen the vision, line up changes were made. Steve Sabo was added on drums and Dave Santini joined as vocalist. Bob and Dave formed an instant bond for songwriting and began putting together material for the E.P. "Metal Forever". Charlie Gallagher stepped down as bassist; so Jason Tete joined.

The E.P. "Metal Forever" was recorded with Jason Grosse at 1021 Studios in Bristol, PA as an independent release. The band played live extensively and started writing/recording at 1021 Studios for a full-length release. With the material completed by September 2010, they hired the legendary Achim Koehler to master the project and independently released "Out of the Ashes, Into the Fire". In the fall of 2010, Steve Sabo was replaced as drummer and Chris "Chachie" Smith filled in temporarily. Although Chris's picture appears on the CD liner notes, Steve Sabo actually recorded drums for the album.

Power Theory signed a 2 year deal with Pure Steel Records Germany in February and "Out of the Ashes, Into the Fire" was repackaged and internationally released on April 29th, 2011 at "Keep it True" Festival in Königshofen, Germany. Soon after the release, bassist Jason Tete amicably parted ways with the band for family reasons and so was replaced by Jay "Viking Jay" Pekala. Finally, during summer, a vital missing piece, a true metal drummer, Lorin Savadove was added. Now, with a more dynamic rhythm section the band started recording their follow up album once again at 1021 Studios.

The band gained more extensive live exposure, expanding their range to neighboring states and continued recording new material for their sophomore effort "An Axe to Grind" with cover artwork by Eliran Kantor on Pure Steel Records. An invitation from Datis Alee to play Warriors of Metal V Open Air in Pataskala, OH on June 29th was accepted. The band and record label mutually agreed to officially release "An Axe to Grind" on that day. Power Theory played more shows later in the summer with national acts such as White Wizzard, Icarus Witch, October 31, and Anvil Bitch also labelmates Exxplorer, Sleepy Hollow, and Widow. In September Power Theory opened up for German metal icons, ACCEPT and KREATOR in their hometown of Philadelphia, PA to a packed house. Jay Pekala departed the band after the show.

Demo recordings for a 3rd full length release began in March and it was clear a powerful transformation was taking place. The band chose to part ways with Dave Santini and the search for a new lead vocalist began. Nygil Hoch (who is a Musicians Institute GIT graduate) was recruited for lead/rhythm guitar duties and NYC area vocalist Jeff Rose earned the spot as front-man, thanks to his preparation and talent. Long time band friends Paul Orkin (Flesh Engine) and Drew Foster had been generously filling in on bass duties for various live shows but the final addition of Alan D'Angelo (Livesay, Sleepy Hollow) on bass, completed the new line up.

Revamped and ready to roll the band returned to the main stage at Warriors of Metal Open Air VI to play a killer live set with old and new material and was greatly accepted by fans. In October 2013, Power Theory embarked on their first national U.S. tour as main support for SEVEN WITCHES with VICIOUS RUMORS headlining on the second leg of VR's North American "Metal Masters Tour" and returned home to support NWOBHM legends, RAVEN at JB McGinnes in New Castle, DE. Sadly, in late November, drummer Lorin Savadove had decided to step down due to a personal injury. Later, Nick Bunzck was tapped to fill in on drums.
Early highlights have seen the band playing shows with national acts Single Bullet Theory, Byzantine, Arctic Flame and Primeval Realm. Come April, PT goes to play Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse/Chicago Metal Fest alongside Picture,
Grim Reaper, Riot, and Voltax. The year concluded with an appearance at SAVFEST-USA on October 18 with their most closely related label-mates, WRETCH and a monster show once again in direct support for RAVEN on November 22 at The Legendary Dobbs on South Street, Philadelphia, PA. New management under SentinelMusic had been in order for the following year.

Kicking off in high gear, the band re-launched the recording process of their 3rd full length album “Driven By Fear” with a new producer, Carlos Alvarez (Dirty Viking Studios). The first shows of 2015 included opening up for DORO on March 3 in Philadelphia, PA and traveling to Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus/Akron, Ohio on April 16, 17 and 18 respectively to headline with label-mates WRETCH/Sunless Sky/Axe Master. May 15, 16 and 17, Power Theory flew down to Florida for 3 amazing shows with Marton Veress (Armageddon) on drums for his first performances with Power Theory. June 6 was PT's first time in Providence, Rhode Island, playing at Firehouse 13. June 7 was at Blackthorn 51 in Queens, New York. June 13 will be a local show at Bull Shooters Saloon as direct support for Release's farewell.

The first scheduled performance outside of the United States will be held at Hard Summer Festival in Falkenfells, Bavaria, Germany. Surely to become a highlight in the bands career.

The new album "Driven By Fear" is in the process of being mastered and will be released on Pure Steel Records in late 2015.

Almøst Human

Almøst Human is a swiss metal band. But it’s also a universe, a vision of the world and humanity. An orchestration of the life and death’s cycle which finds an echo even in its own biography.
First steps done in the 90’s on Olivier Perdrizat (guitar and composition) and Rosario Fullone (drums) initiative, Almøst Human slowly faded a few years later before rising back again , in 2010, when Jan Peyer (bass) joined the band. This seminal line-up is soon completed with Chris Matthey; a second guitarist whose producer’s talents helped to forge a sound as much powerful as delicate. Ben Plu?ss (voice) comes crown the Gang, lending his verve and unique tone to a collection lashing soul and flesh’s intimity.
Making fun of usual metal-bound « clichés » (occult symbols, blood), it questions us about our human nature and about the place we occupy - or wish we occupied - in the animal kingdom. « Rather ask than claim », summarizes Olivier Perdrizat, who composes most of the riffs and whose thoughts widely inspired lyrics written out by Sebastian Maeder, Nick Maeder Gotthard singer’s brother joining together technicality peculiar to the xtreme metal with rock energy, Almøst Human always focus on melody and emotion, in the broad sense of term.
Totally self produced, if we except the mastering realised in Stockholm (Sweden) by the Cutting Room studio, the first Almøst Human EP is a slap in the face which shouldn’t leave indifferent any modern and innovative metal fan. The whole pre-production has been realised in studio, even before the musicians started the rehearsals together. « We did the exact opposite of what bands usually do », explains Ben Plu?ss. « It made it possible for us to go further into the creation process than in the hub of a rehearsal Room ». We particularly stressed on atmospheres, guitars effects. All of it enjoyed a production and mixing of quality thanks to the work accomplished in the Royal Studios of Lausanne by Chris Matthey.
From now on, Almøst Human members share a mutual dream : defend their « repertoire » live. It will represent the realization of more than two years of intensive labour, which will probably erect the band as one of the most convincing value in helvetian metal area!
