First formed in 2003, Bloodshot Dawn have evolved from a straight forward, groove orientated death metal band into a technically ferocious extreme metal outfit. Hailed by Terrorizer as a band that delivers “blistering live shows”, Bloodshot Dawn have become a household name in the UK underground.

In 2007 Bloodshot Dawn recorded and released their first effort in the form of “Coalition Of Terror”, a two track EP that received positive feedback both critically and around their local metal scene. The band then went on to win the 2009 “Metal To The Masses” competition, playing at Bloodstock Open Air Festival with the likes of influential bands such as Carcass, Arch Enemy and Kreator.

The band's current line up was solidified in late 2009 and they began preparing material for their follow up to “Coalition Of Terror”. This came in the form of the “Slaves To The Lie” EP, released in February 2011. This EP was self-financed and made available worldwide via all major online distribution websites. Bloodshot Dawn supported the release with tour dates in the UK, including gigs with Vader, Krisiun, and Cerebral Bore.

In September 2011, Bloodshot Dawn entered 16th Cellar Studios in Rome (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance), to record their debut full-length release. The self-titled album has seen Bloodshot Dawn's writing style mature noticeably, becoming more intense and technical, while increasingly melodic and accessible. This unique writing sensibility, coupled with fierce production from Stefano Morabito, has resulted in an album that has seen Bloodshot Dawn claimed by many as one of the UK's fiercest Metal bands.

The Crawling was born following a few failed attempts at getting a couple of ageing metal heads into the same room to play some death metal. Finally, towards the close of 2014, the band settled on a solid line up.

The music created is a result of a trio of music fans that have enjoyed, and participated, in the local music scene for decades. Creator Stuart hailed from 90's death metal legends Severance, Andy fronted Honey For Christ for 14 years, and Gary Beattie is still blasting for Zombified.

The collaboration has resulted in a heavy, slow-death ensemble, forged against a back drop of misery and contempt for the world that surrounds us.


"There is no greater sorrow than to recall in misery the time when we were happy."

Becomes Astral is a progressive death metal band based out of Guelph, Ontario. Formed in the later months of 2013, they quickly got to work on releasing their debut EP, The Mind, which was released in October 2014. The Mind was recorded and mixed by Don Levasseur at Atlantic Studio. After their debut release, Becomes Astral toured heavily for the following year, covering west coast Canada, and two Ontario and Quebec tours. Playing steadily since, Becomes Astral has made themselves a force to be reckoned with, allowing the band to sell out half of their last tour in Ontario. In early 2016, Becomes Astral took a break from playing live to write a full-length record, and returned to shows in late 2016. In December 2016 the band entered The Grid Studios in Montreal, QC with Christian Donaldson of Cryptopsy as a producer and came out with a piece of music they are proud to call their own, Paleblood Sky.
