    The Driftwood Sign, a melodic rock band from Malmö, Sweden sprung out of the desire to create music that brings an emotional response yet leaning towards the heavier side of rock we combine heavy riffage with melodies and lyrical content that resonates and speaks with the audience.

We’ll follow up with an EP in early 2015.

  14. Insolitvs 10 months ago

    Insolitvs is an instrumental quartet based in Varaždin, Croatia. Formed in 2006 by already prolific local musicians, the band played an array of shows in a short time, and gained both experience and influences, leaving their music to evolve by the day. In an effort to do things as they used to be done “back in the day”, Insolitvs decided to make their name on the road before recording yet another low-budget home-recorded demo. This finally led to the making of their first release – the CD “Op. I”. Recorded in 2010 (recorded and engineered by Tomislav “Tompa” Novosel, mastered by Igor Malečić for Maisterwerk Productions), “Op. I” marks the highlight of their career so far. Combining relentless death metal with a wide range of genres – ranging from classical music, to latin, smooth-jazz, folk melodies etc – the four musicians have justified their road-reputation, and managed to capture on CD all the anger and the intensity that has become a trademark of their shows! Released in 2010 in Croatia by the band themselves, “Op. I” is now re-released through Layered Reality Productions, and available world-wide!

    The members of the band are:

    Ivan Milkovic – fretless bass
    Gordan Vrbanec – guitars
    Ivan Breslauer – guitars
    Petar Babic – drums

    You can check out the band and listen to the tracks from the CD at

    We hope the music You’ve heard has stirred some interest with You and we hope to hear from You, at least with a couple of words containing your impressions!

    Till then, best of luck and kind regards from Varazdin, Croatia and the entire Insolitvs crew!

    MOURN, HeavyStonerBluesGrooveRockSludgeMetal from The Netherlands.
    With members from Exivious, (ex-)Cynic (US), Textures and March, MOURN mixes sludge, stoner, groove and metal. As a counteraction against the supertechnical metalbands of modern day, MOURN gets its inspirations from bands like Down, Pantera, Black Sabbath and Black Label Society. Music that is made to move and groove.

    Through the following link you can now listen to the entire EP “The Beaten Path” which was released on September 1st 2014.

    For further questions, information or interviews you can contact us through e-mail.

    All the best,


    -Robin Zielhorst

    MOURN Biography:

    In late 2013, MOURN decided to bring nothing new. Since everything already had been done before, and everything else wouldn’t be worth making, these brave young men decided to do something entirely different: to acknowledge their total lack of cutting edge. Trying not to copy other bands, this band makes a mixture of Metal, Rock and Blues like a lot of other bands before them. Bands you of course have heard of, going from Pantera and Down to Black Sabbath and Black Label Society.

    Founding member Robin Zielhorst (ex-Cynic, Ex-Blue Man Group, Exivious), found like minded forces in Thomas Frankhuijzen (March), Kas Kluitman and Pieter Verpaalen (ex-Texures) to walk this beaten path of metal. The result is a grooving metal machine that does not stop until you’re beating your head to the sound of the riffs. You could describe its genre as HeavyStonerBluesGrooveRockSludgeMetal. MOURN’s heavily riff oriented music trades technical prowess and speed for groove and feel boldly going where many bands have gone before.

    Around the summer of 2014 MOURN recorded their first EP “The Beaten Path” to start their road to world domination. This EP will bring you 3 of their most powerful songs to give you a little taste of their music.

    This band will truly show itself to best advantage live on stage. Warm up your neck muscles, you’ll need it. –

    What Mourn deliver instead is a constant barrage of meaty, blues-inspired riffs and deep grooves. I recommend that you don’t let Mourn fly under your radar. – Heavyblogisheavy

    Some mighty nice stoner sludge southern groove metal. – LordsOfMetal

    These guys know how to craft some top notch tunes and I see them going far fast. Providing a whole lot of interesting aspects to an overcrowded genre, I can hardly wait for the full length! – Twoguysmetalreviews

  20. MUTONIA - New Album 9 months ago

    Hi, they are the Mutonia, from Rome/Italy.
    This that I’m going to show you is their first album: “BLOOD RED SUNSET”.



    Mutonia were born in 2009 in Rome/Italy.
    The band is formed by Matteo De Prosperis (voice & guitar), Fabio Teragnoli (bass guitar) and Maurizio Tomaselli (drums).

    On the 28th October 2011 they recorded a live CD (with all their old punk italian’ songs): “Mutonia live 2010-2011?.
    In the 2012 with the demo “Gain From Waste” they mark the transition from punk to alternative rock. After playing a lot of gigs with the demo for almost two years, they decide to write new songs, this time they find in the stoner rock, their style, in the famous sound of the 90s they create an own stamp and they start their live shows. This step marks an artistic growth of the band, both from the point of view of instrumental that the vocal.
    In 2014 they released “Blood Red Sunset” their first album.

    2011 – Mutonia Live! 2010-2011 (live)
    2012 – Gain From Waste (demo)

    I’m the Songwriter for the band “Take Her To The Disco” I started this band sometime early last year. I’m proud to say that I’ve written an album all by myself within a 6 month span. I’ve also created logos and necessary marketing tools to promote my band in every which way. The debut album which is on it’s way will be Mixed, Mastered and Engineered by Taylor Voeltz of Mureau. As well as a few buddies doing guest appearances on this album like; Ricky Armellino of This or The Apocalypse, Waylon Jennings & John Caison of Fracture, Matt Zavala of Seven Year War, Iorden Mitev of Society 1, Michael Noud of Logic Project and a special guest. :)

    Any who, there is music up on Reverbnation the downside is that there isn’t any Vocals to it just yet, but I just put that up so people can get a feel of what’s to come. The first song named “War” will be the first single being released through XCI Records’ Engineering team. That will be available by late January/early February. Be on the lookout I’ll be gunnin’ on the vocals for that one. lol.

  31. Alex 2 months ago

    Hey, my name is Alex, I am the bass player of metal band Suffer No Fools. We are based in London and are relatively new to the scene.

    You can check us out here:

    Here is a quick bio and a few quotes:

    Formed in Ealing in 2015 and comprised of Ali Khan on vocals, Jack Kirby and Jamie Newdeck on Guitar, Alex Bain on Bass, and Mike Taylor on drums. The band set out to combine the best of their influences in order to create something contemporary that also harked back to the last few decades of metal. This led to a band that had the speed and melody of Metallica, the groove of Rammstein and the crushing edge of Killswitch Engage.

    “Melodic yet powerful they are sure to please any rock fan. Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is a fusion of pure awesomeness.” – Scotty-D, Rock Bandom

    “Suffer No Fools can do something that can blow our fucking minds and help sculpt our playlists and CD collections.” – Vinterd, Head-Banger Reviews

    ” It was my first time seeing them perform, but I’m certain it won’t be my last, because armed with an incredible first album and an appreciation for working hard, they’re going to take the music world by storm” – Underock
