Blodsmak is a Norwegian folkcore band, playing heavy rock with a generous sprinkling of Norwegian folk music.
Building on the folk metal tradition of Lumsk, Gåte, Glittertind, they are heavier and less metal, combining their thunderous grooves and insistent riffs with almost proglike elements and a melodic sensibility reminiscent of both introvert grunge and 80’s shameless stadium rock.
Their first album Av jord er me komne released in 2014, delves into themes of addiction, love lost, death, longing, and redemption. Although the subject matter is dark, the songs themselves, albeit heavy, incorporates almost popish hooks and choruses.

Impalers is a thrash metal band from Denmark, deeply rooted in the extremity of the German thrash scene of the ’80s. They provide powerful and aggressive music blended with melodic passages and breaks. Lyrically, the band is a statement of anti-war and anti-theism and strives to enlighten a path for a better world. In a few words, Impalers are brutality and melody incarnate. For fans of Kreator, Sodom, Sepultura, Metallica, and Testament.

Denmarks best selling power metal band Iron Fire is still alive and kickin’.
19 years ago when a new millennium was entered, the Thunderstorm album struck the world and is today considered a Danish power metal cult classic. Seven albums later the band still breathes as vibrant as ever, and although there have been various line-up changes, founding member Martin Steene and his sidekick Kirk Backarach pushes the boundaries of the band. In addition to Steene and Kirk, another founding member joined the battlefield, as original drummer Gunnar Olsen rejoined the band in 2015, after 15 years of absence. Iron Fire is therefore now a three-piece band that still clings on to melodic old-school power metal as it was meant to be played. The music, however, is never still and is devolved over time. From the dark epic of Voyage of the Damned, over the rock n roll influenced March of the Immortals, to classic power hymns like Wings of Rage. But first and foremost Iron Fire takes power metal very literally, as the common denominator in the music is, and has always been power - with a capital P…
Iron Fire has toured in Europe with U.D.O. Primal Fear, Demon, Seven Witches. They have also supported acts like Saxon, WASP, Doro, Kamelot, and Royal Hunt.

The vision of the band is to create good old fashioned Rock 'N Roll music stirred up with a modern flavor.
Their first single and video Absinthia was released in 2014 followed by some local live shows, and in 2015 Bridgeville signed a record contract with Crime Records for the release of debut album Aftershock.

In the beginning, the universe was born out of nothingness.
The war between the great forces started violently and ended fast, and the young universe was doomed to be left-handed, and asymmetrical and the arrow of time was just advancing it's predetermined future.
Billions of years passed, then matter made life, life made man and man made god. God made Satan and Satan wanted to corrupt man, but man had the tool, and the tool was rebellious and it slowly took control of men's life. The tool is now called technology and it's evolving very fast, to the point where it became intelligent and a new race was born that is going to wipe out all of humanity and it's delusion world.
The genocide lasted for years but when the killing stopped all what was left had to be conquered.
Billions of years passed, then the universe became old and started to weaken.
The sound of it's falling was all that could be heard. Black holes are cleaning what was left of dying stars then black holes died themselves and the universe was left cold and dark.
