Behind the snowy mountains of Northern Norway, under the light of a sinking sun, there is a town called Tromsø, where you will find a stoner/doom band called Heave Blood & Die. A gang of 20 year old boys who’ve created a dark, winterized and raw-sounding album, ready to show it about. A new sound is created with deep and mossy guitars, growls of a troll and screams from a wolf. On their debut album you will find a wide specter of songs. Inspired by groovy 70s rock, super heavy soul rotating riffs and hardcore – they create their own sound of dark, doomy and dirty tunes.
Filled with a passion for everything evil, Reptile Master from Tromsø/ northern Norway is on a mission to spread the gospel of doom. With strong roots in both traditional heavy metal, post-metal and sludge, they create a new sound composed of the outermost extremes found in aggression and sorrow. Reptile Master, in cooperation with the label Blues For The Red Sun from Tromsø/Norway, now present their first full length album, which has recently been recorded and is expected to be released in October. The result is far from becoming a commercial radio hit.
Monumentum (NOR) came to life in 2010 in a small city called Fauske, drawing from the members shared love of all things slow and distorted. The small city in the north of Norway has midnight sun during the summer, and bleak darkness rest of the year; an ideal setting to create slow and sludgy music. Drawing influence from such acts as Black Sabbath, Sleep, Kyuss, Weedeater, Melvins, Truckfighters and Motorhead.
