Wardruna - Runaljod - Ragnarok (2016)

Wardruna is a Norwegian musical project based on Nordic spiritualism and the runes of the Elder Futhark. It was started by Einar "Kvitrafn" Selvik in 2003, along with Gaahl and Lindy Fay Hella. The band began in 2003 and have since released three full-length albums, each based on a set of runes. Their third album , Runaljod - Ragnarok, was released on October 21, 2016. Wardruna make significant use of traditional instruments including deer-hide frame drums, Kraviklyra, tagelharpe, mouth harp, goat horn and lur. Non-traditional instruments and other sources of sound like trees, rocks, water and torches are also used.

In 2014, Einar Selvik announced on the group's official Facebook page that they would take part in composing the score for season 2 of Vikings along with Trevor Morris. He later appeared as an actor on the show.

In 2015, Gaahl left Wardruna on amicable terms.

Asteroid - III (2016)

Asteroid are a stoner/Fuzz band from Örebro, Swedenfounded in late 2003. They are known for their signature bluesy, psychedelic sound. The band went on hiatus in 2013, but returned in November 2015.

The band was formed by Johannes Nilsson on vocals and bass, Robin Hirse on vocals and guitar and Martin Ström on drums in late 2003. This line-up quickly released their 2004 Demo and a self titled EP in 2005 and began to extensively tour Europe. In 2006 the band released a split album with fellow Swedish stoner rock band Blowback, before releasing their first solo album, 2007's Asteroid.

Some time after the release of their first album, Ström left the band and was replaced on drums by Elvis Campbell, who first appears on 2009's II. II was recorded by Oscar Campbell, Elvis' brother, in the forest at 'The Organ Donor transplant plant/The Planet of the Black Keys' recording studio, during the winter of '08/'09. Campbell left the band in 2012 and was replaced on drums by Henrik Jansson. Jansson made his first appearance on the rare vinyl 7" release Move a Mountain. Jansson left soon after, with Campbell stepping back into the band for touring. Asteroid is presently on a hiatus with Hirse currently focussing on his new project, The Sun, The Moon & The Witch's Blues. Johannes and Elvis recently formed a forest metal project called Mörkla, together with Andreas Lupieri.

In November 2015, after a few cryptic posts on social media, Robin Hirse confirmed via an interview with JJ Koczan of The Obelisk that Asteroid had reformed, with Elvis Campbell rejoining the band on drums. The band's first show back will be in support of All Them Witches in Athens, Greece on 27th February 2016.

Witchwood - Handful of Stars (2016)


Witchwood born from the ashes of the cult band Buttered Bacon Biscuits in 2014. BBB released "From The Solitary Woods" (Black Widow Records) in 2010. The album has been very well reviewed by many Italian and international music magazines and websites. BBB played many gigs around Italy, also supporting important bands like Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, etc. They also recorded the cover “A National Acrobat” for the Black Sabbath tribute “Hands Of Doom” released by Mag Music Production in 2013.
After the BBB split some members of the band (Ricky, Andy, Steve and Sam) along with the new bass player Luca Celotti decided to start a new project, Witchwood. Those musicians have been active for decades, with past recording experiences and collaborations with artists such as Martin Grice (Delirium) and Nik Turner (Hawkwind). The debut album "Litanies From The Woods" is the result of 2 years of songwriting, long and hard rehearsals and recording sessions and it has been released by Jolly Roger Records on CD and Digital in May 2015, and on 2 LP in October 2015. The album features ten tracks for 78 minutes and it is a long journey from 70’s hard rock, to progressive, psych, southern rock and blues. The record received excellent reviews both from Italian and international press, and also very good selling-results (the CD has been printed twice and the 500 double LP’s sold out in a few months).
Recently Witchwood were voted as "best emerging band in 2015" by Rock Hard Italy readers, and played the final match in the Wacken Metal Battle competition.
"Handful Of Stars" features 3 brand new tracks written for this release, 2 covers ("Flaming Telepath" from Blue Oyster Cult and "Rainbow Demon" from Uriah Heep), a kind of homage and tribute to these two great bands, so important for Witchwood's musical journey, and an unreleased version of the suite "Handful Of Stars" from "Litanies from the Woods" with a new breathless intro, for 45 minutes of music.
"Handful of Stars" is the right way to celebrate the appreciations received for the debut album and to introduce the new guitar player Antonino Stella, appreciated session man and long time Ricky's friend.
The new video clip for the title track, made by the artist Dimitri Corradini, will be available soon.

Hail Spirit Noir - Mayhem in Blue (2016)

"Mayhem In Blue", the new album from Psychedelic Prog Black Metallers Hail Spirit Noir, is set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 28th October. The album will be the third full-lenght release for the Greek trio, whose debut album "Pneuma" appeared in 2012, followed by 2014´s "Oi Magoi".

Commenting on what fans can expect from "Mayhem In Blue", the band had to say this: "It's been two and a half years since the release of our last album, and with "Mayhem In Blue" we have set out to express our more aggressive side, without sacrificing any of the psychedelic melodies that are an integral part of what we like to call Hail Spirit Noir's "weird black sound". If anything in fact, the sound is more enticing and trippy than ever.

Fuzz- Fuzz (album 2013)

Fuzz is an American rock band from California, formed in 2011. The band consists of Charles Moothart (vocals, guitar), Ty Segall(vocals, drums) and Chad Ubovich (vocals, bass)

Created as an outlet for Moothart's affection for hard rock riffs, Fuzz began as collaboration between Moothart and Segall, while Moothart performed in Segall's live band. In 2012, the pair released two singles, "This Time I Got a Reason" and "Sleigh Ride", and were joined by bass guitarist Roland Cosio.

In October 2013, the band released its self-titled debut album, Fuzz. While touring the album, Chad Ubovich (Meatbodies and Mikal Cronin Band) replaced Cosio on bass.[1] In October 2015, Fuzz released their second album, entitled II, written in a more collaborative manner than the band members were used to.
