Jordan Reyne, who recently relocated to London from New Zealand, has been busily creating what is described by Radio New Zealand as "an entirely new sound."
In her native country Jordan has been nominated 3 times for a New Zealand Music award and also commended at the Silver Scroll awards.
Jordan's music blends Celtic vocal melodies with industrial found sounds and folktronic loops to set the stage for her dark tales of salt, steam and iron in the tradition of the Brothers Grimm.
Maxdmyz is a London-based metal band.
The band has had a few incarnations, which have all yielded great reviews. However, they have never had a stronger line-up than the one present. Shedding a guitarist and exchanging a keyboard/synth player in favour of programmed digital madness, the band have become tighter more focused and a lot more aggressive.
Early acclaimed recordings such as Muthablud EP mix together the relentless hypnotic heavy synth lead rock, popularised by bands like Swans and Skinny Puppy.
Ventenner formed in 2007, and started writing material over the next 18 months which would go on to form the dark and uncomfortable debut album 'Dead Reflections' in 2009. This first album, underground as it was, got a lot of attention. Several remixes and covers were created, which led to the release of the follow up remix album 'Oblivion Revised' in 2010. Now signed to Sonice Fire Records, Ventenner is focused on filling a void left in the contemporary music scene with innovative, violent and beautiful music. This year will see the release of the new album and constant shows/touring.
Die Kur is an industrial metal band based in London UK. Formed in 1999 the band has released two official albums "From Dark (Renaissance of Evil)" (2006) and "The Fall of The Empire" (2009).
The band is actively performing and currently working on the third studio album due to be released during 2011.
