Falls Of Rauros is a black metal band hailing from Maine. Forming in 2005 as a 2 piece, they later expanded into a quartet and since 2010 have been performing live with a consistent line-up. Designated instruments and roles on recordings are handled by various band members and are not set in stone. “The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood” features Austin Lunn (Panopticon, Seidr) on drums due to the band being between drummers at the time of its conception. The name is a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel “The Lord of the Rings” in tradition but is not reflected in subject matter.

Exilym, the solo project, was created in 2003, already then distilling an ambient post rock, ethereal, with spatial sonorities. 

Exilym, the band, became real during summer 2009. Formation continues in the same musical range, but decide to accentuate the spatial side, trough the sound, visuals or even the universe told by titles. This second born was cemented around conception of a first real project, EP « No More Freedom », composed of six titles recorded during autumn 2009 at the ObritalStation Studio, and out in March 2010 through the label Swarm Of Nails. Exilym works actually their live set, and a new LP.

Aussitôt Mort (eng.: «as soon as dead») is a four piece screamo/post-rock band from Caen, France formed in early 2005. Soon after The Apollo Program break up, Antoine, Milouze and Greg – who quit the band later – decided to carry on making music together… They teamed up with good friends and great musicians Pierre (also bassplayer in Amanda Woodward) and Cédric (from the experimental-post-rockish local band None.ID).

 No rules were set, no boundaries erected, just the usual “making music you like with good friends” thing. They first tried to create a new style, “emo-doom”, which could have been called “emoom”, or “doomo”, but they kind of failed. Several months later, some songs have been put together, recorded in le Studio de la Souleuvre, a remote studio in the Normandy countryside. During the process, some played french bowls, a dead mouse was found in a bed, things went pretty good. In early 2009, Pierre left the band to concentrate on being a father. He is replaced by Marc of Karysun.

Hailing from the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, South Africa, Jason Sutherland is a musician, multi-instrumentalist and producer with a burning desire to augment imagination and radiate creativity to immense lengths.

Exploring and experimenting with ambient music throughout his teen years, Jason started making sounds under the name On Travel, releasing various split albums and EPs with many like-minded independent artists before mysteriously fading under a fog of uncertainty. In 2008, Jason and friends started the cinematic post-rock quartet Eyes Like Mirrors, in which he still remains a prolific member.

Since early 2011 Jason has been making swirling yet crushing electronic post-rock music under the moniker Jaysynth. His sound can be described as a mix of ambient post-rock leaning toward a classical nature, whilst swelling with lush electronics into climatic comfort.

Jaysynth released his debut 5-track self titled EP in October 2011, as well as a score to the 1904 silent epic 'The Impossible Voyage'. Gaining attention from the local scene and music addicts from all over the world, he has garnered a small following through the use of sites like bandcamp and various blogs.

January 2012 saw the release of the dreamy single "Clouds Over Hills", accompanied by a video animated by Jason himself, which premiered at The Bioscope Theatre in Johannesburg.

In August 2012, Jaysynth released his sophomore EP titled "Welcome To Limbo", again containing 5 tracks, and sounding more sophisticated than ever.

In July 2013, he released his latest album called "Until We Meet Again", a mix of ambient post-rock leaning toward a classical nature, whilst swelling with lush electronics into climatic comfort. As he states: "This album was written in dedication for someone very special to me. The emotion conveyed within every note is from the heart."

06. Beneath The Waves
07. Last Breath

Crib45 is an experimental alternative metal outcome of what started out as a grunge band, but evolved into a collective group of musicians sharing one vision. An collective group of minds sharing one voice. In shorter terms and most importantly, an collective. Like every working group of musicians, there are always a driving force behind it, that keeps everything going. In Crib45 that force is the core that consists 7 constant members and around that core there are group musicians that variates based on the purpose and event. Crib45's core contrives from Janne Pappila, Jussi Saarelma , Sami Kurppa, Jussi Personen, Filip Franck, Teemu Mäntynen and Ville Suovaniemi. Around that core, the collective builds up from Antti Hokkala, Maija Sipiläinen, Salla Matusiak and varying musicians that passes the torch forward to next one. Since there are more than one path to travel, we feel that Crib45 shouldn't be tied down under one acquired band form, just like the music shouldn't be tied down under acquired verse-chorus form. At the same time we are not trying to invent the wheel again, but just trying to explore different paths while traveling our journey. After 10 years since the birth of the origin grunge band, our journey is still in prologue. Much is yet to come and new grounds waiting to be explored...

This is an old album from 2009 by an underrated band and took the chance to upload it as the band released it on bandcamp.
