Last Builders Of Empire is an instrumental rock band consisting of four like-minded musicians, drummer Rich Reed, guitarist Dan Mandino, guitarist Jesse Danger, and bassist Chris Duston. Interested in experimenting with song structures, and sonic textures, each track is the result of an organic and collaborative effort. 

Their first album, Without Remorse, grapples with the selfishness of war that leaves nothing but loss and devastation in its wake. The concept carries throughout the album, inspiring the song titles, artwork, and aggressive sound. The five tracks ebb and flow--ranging from sparse to lush, from explosive to serene, from wounded to euphoric. 

The band’s second album, Post-War, was written as a continuation of the previous album, but moves toward the conclusion of war and continues to journey into the life (or death) thereafter. Inspired in part by a battlefield letter authored by a US Civil War soldier on his deathbed, and by Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, Post-War is a struggle with loss on a personal and conceptual level. The album is arranged into three movements that follow the different stages of the afterlife. With recurring melodies, and themes that grow and change throughout, the album has a cinematic quality to it and has its own story to tell. 

With their new EP Hades, the quartet stretches past the limitations of their instruments to incorporate orchestral arrangements and synth soundscapes. Hades is an exploration in three parts of the mythological ancient Greek underworld; Erebus, Kharon, and Tartarus. The songs attempt to capture a journey through this world, while leaving plenty of room for individual interpretation. Hades also serves as a continuation to the purgatory theme of their previous album, Post-War.

And shadows march on fading light
A faint small spark brings forth a glow
To remind the faithful that hope unfolds
And as we settle into restless slumber
Dawn's first light reaches down to comfort
To reveal the path and grace the sky
And Guide Our Feet to Where the Good Way Lies

Dayluta Means Kindness is an instrumental post-rock band from Texas. Following Texas' rich heritage with the genre, they encompass beautiful and subtle melodies and waves of amplified guitar that reach large walls of sound. Having no vocalist provides their listeners the opportunity to create their own narratives to what the songs mean to them and is seen as an advantage to the band. The band formed from very modest aspirations to a collective unit that has dedicated itself to perform lively and energetic shows. The band has shared the stage with mostly touring packages since its inception; having shared a stage with their contemporaries in Caddywhompus, Aviator, Rescuer, Boyfrndz, and Future Death. The band released their demo 'The Ground is Lava' and the music video for the demo's namesake, also entitled 'The Ground is Lava' on December 9th 2014.

January 2015 also lead to the addition of a third guitarist making the band a powerhouse of audible ambient and rock textures. The group, now feeling complete, released a full length album in January 2017.

Glasgow Coma Scale was formed in February 2011 by Piotr and Marek Kowalski. The two brothers and trained classical musicians lived their lives between Krakow/Poland, where they were born and Barcelona/Spain, finally settling in Frankfurt /Germany. However, they never got the chance to play together in the same band. Along with the drummer Helmes Bode, the idea has now come full circle. If the Kowalskis are the “head” and “heart” of the group, then Bode delivers pumping blood and a dense connective tissue.

Glasgow Coma Scale is named after a neurological method that helps to assess the status of the central nervous system and classify the patient’s state of disorder. For those who want to know if the coma therapy really works, go and listen to their new record. If you are into psychedelic rock, the new album will expand your universe since it takes the music of the first EP“Apophenia” to an even further level. “Enter Oblivion” released via Fluttery Records in December 2016.

It took quite a long time to put all the pieces together and finally record this album. It contains of new and old songs equally.For instance, the last song on the record, called Birthland is the first song ever written, while the opener Sonda is the band’s latest creation.

Why Enter Oblivion? Have you ever heard of people having their best ideas, just before they fall asleep? This is how lots of ideas on this record were born. Mostly, it was the question of catching the idea by singing it into for example a voice recorder or a mobile before entering the oblivion. So, in case of Glasgow Coma Scale, this very moment is crucial if it comes to generating ideas. You catch it and transfer it later into your songs, or you did not manage to stay awake and lose it. It is that simple.

The song Southern Crosses was written in a rehearsal room in in the German capital Berlin while the band was touring. The special thing about the rehearsal room was its location – that was in the midst of an old cemetery. Surrounded by crosses on the one hand side and being close to a railway station called “Südkreuz” (South Cross) on the other hand, finding the song title was an easy decision.
