Deep within the Hyperborean mists there lies a pale blue light. It is the light of a flame whose embers have been smoldering long and low, awaiting the day when it will engulf the sky in brilliant and terrible cerulean Aurora. That day has come. Vimur is a black metal band from the American South. Despite its hot, humid origins, Vimur's sound has a layer of icy frost seemingly shipped straight from the Arctic circle. Vimur was founded in 2006 as the singular musical vision of Vaedis, who spent several years writing music and developing his ability on drums so he could execute the compositions forming in his mind. In 2009, the first full length was recorded solely by Vaedis but was scrapped after not measuring up to his elite standards. An extremely limited demo was released in the Fall of 2010. Over 2010-2011 Vaedis revisited the debut album and with honed instrumental chops was able to re-record the material at a much higher level of prowess. Vaedis waited to unleash this record until he could form a live ensemble who could truly capture its power
and atmosphere. Many auditioned, but none were worthy until Kiehüle joined as bassist/co-writer. Two years would pass before a drummer of the proper caliber could be recruited; Ætheøs brought the unstoppable thrust that Vimur's sound demanded. Shortly after, Australis joined the ranks on guitar and the live line-up was complete, allowing Vimur to begin playing captivating live performances. In 2014, Vimur released a second demo with two studio recordings from the full length and three live recordings featuring the full band. At the end of 2014, the debut full length "Traversing the Ethereal Current" finally saw official release on Shades of Nyx records, and Vimur immediately set out on tour over the Northeast and Midwest to support the album. In 2015 an exemplary live tape, featuring individually handpainted artwork, was released by Ritual Ugliness Productions. Vimur continues to write and perform nationally with imminent plans to return to the studio.


We are Stonehaven, a band of four friends eager to change people's lives with our unique brand of heavy music. Keep on wood grain grippin'.

The idea of Terranaut was formulated deep within a great forest preserve in chicago around late 2007. Nieko the band founder was trekking the paths in the middle of the night tripping on dxm with an acoustic. When a talking coyote appeared and demanded he write black metal for the masses. So from that has evolved the band you see today.

Death metal band from Birmingham, Alabama, US.

We are Nucleus. Our sole purpose is to melt your neocortex with our brand of utterly cosmic death metal brutality. We give a shit about two things: black holes, and blastbeats. Get you some.


Agrinex was formed in fall of 2012 in Des Moines, Iowa. The non existing black metal scene in Des Moines at the time created Agrinex. Agrinex vowed to not conform to what seemed to be standard cookie cutter black metal. Agrinex will always strive to be evil, demonic, atmospheric, entrancing, and avantgrade.

They sold out of this self-release. Animated played throughout the Midwest and built a strong fan base in the metal underground.
In 1994 the band parted ways due to line up changes and musical differences. In 2001 founding members Spence Riggle and Rik Geib reanimated the band adding new drummer Jeff Riggle and x-Cicatrix guitarist Chris Beneke.

The demo included tracks: Bloodborn, Parasitic, Breed of Suffering and Dead to the Followers.
In the spring of 2005 the band went through some lineup changes. Guitarist Rik Geib parted ways and Spence Riggle moved over to guitar/vocals. The band immediately recruited bass player Joe Hoffman from a hardcore band called Omerta.

The concept of Emaciation was spawned in early 1996. Missouri based avant-garde rock/metal group Gikk, had started in the early 90's & wanted to focus on Heavy Metal. Gikk members Kirby Ray, Stu The Immortal Faris, focused on more brutal back to basics songs mixed with all styles of metal, to regain the magic power. Having grown up on every style of 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's & 2000's metal hard rock, being a founding member of the band Sinister(US) as guitarist in 1985, Kirby Ray had realized this was his lifelong goal. Also to work on several concepts on aspects of the band from the lyrics to the live show. The songs deal with topics such as the paranormal, historical & things we deal with in our daily lives. Starting with very few shows a year going through over 50 member changes, Emaciation has been fortunate to have made many friends in all styles of music & play what we love.

Live, you'll see the theatrical experience of the show, menacing stage presence, corpse paint, spikes & leather! Old School Metal, Power, Death, Thrash, Black, Glam Rock, Ambient, Classical, Gothic, Dark Wave & Rock are all influences of the band.
