We give a very warm welcome to SKINFLINT from Botswana/Afrika. Skinflint is a three piece African Heavy Metal band from Botswana, consisting of Giuseppe Sbrana (Guitar/Vocals) Kebonye Nkoloso (Bass) and Alessandra Sbrana (Drums). The band has had successful tours, and headlined shows across Africa and Europe.  They have also played alongside international acts such as Carcass (UK) and Parlotones.  
The bands releases have been considered to be pioneering example of blending traditional Heavy Metal with African Lyrical concepts, as well as musical theory. The lyrics address a wide range of subjects from traditional ancestral beliefs and African Mythology. This has helped the band receive global exposure, as a result CNN came to Botswana to interview SKINFLINT. The band performed GAUNA after the interview which was aired worldwide on both TV and CNN Internet site.
The band launched their fourth album "DIPOKO" at Rockcember (Gaborone, Botswana), and Nairobi Rock Fest 8th December 2012 (Kenya). Upon their return Skinflint won the 2nd "Annual African Metal" awards for general excellence and best Metal player of the year "Giuseppe Sbrana".
In 2013 the band performed several local concerts and they embarked on a successful Swedish tour in October-November 2013.

We give a very warm welcome to ARSENITE from Sweden. Aggression, speed, attitude and no compromise. This is Arsenite. Arsenite formed in 2009 by guitarist and singer Tony Classon. And guitarist Simon Hagberg.
Even though they did not have a drummer or bassplayer yet, they decided to record a demo
containing their first original song, Liberty is Dead, and two covers of Megadeth and Wolf. The
demo was recorded with programmed drums, and Simon recorded the bass.  At the end of 2009, the band found drummer Richard Fredriksson, and in early 2010, they entered the studio to record another demo, containing three original songs. The band played a few gigs,before finding bassplayer Martin Giaever. Now, with the line-up complete, and more songs had been written, the band recorded the EP High-speed thrashing maniacs. The vocals of the EP was produced by Wolf singer and frontman Niklas Stålvind, and was recorded in his homestudio. It was released in 2011. The EP got in the eyes and ears of Sliptrick records, and landed the band their first contract.
The record label released gave the EP an official digital release in 2012, while the band was booking a studio to start recording their first full-length album. Due to creative and personal reasons, drummer Richard Fredriksson had to be let go. The band was lucky enough to quickly find a new drummer, Henrik Persson, and the line-up was once again
complete. After intense rehearsing with the new drummer, the band entered the studio in spring of
2012, to finally record the debut-album Ashes of the declined. The album was digitally released in
November of that year. The physical release was pushed back because of some complications,
but was finally released in early 2013. After the bands contract with Sliptrick records had run out Arsenite signed with Rambo Music and are now working to release their album in 2014. Arsenite: Real metal for high-speed thrashing maniacs.

We give a very warm welcome to ANCILLOTTI from Italy.

At the end of 2012 thanks the success of the "Down this road together" ep ANCILLOTTI has signed the deal with the German Heavy Metal label 'Pure Steel Records' for the they debut album that will be released on 2013 with worldwide distribution in Europe, Japan, North- and South America, Asia and Oceania.

We give a very warm welcome to KING'S CALL from Germany. Alex Garoufalidis has jammed and recorded with the likes of Graham Bonnet (Alcatrazz), and Chuck Wright (House Of Lords, Quiet Riot). His melodic style gives King’s Call its powerful and distinctive sound. Every song a winner; all music and lyrics are written by founding member Alex Garoufalidis, and sung by Mike Freeland, one of the top vocalists of the genre, who is known for his work fronting the legendary Praying Mantis. Chris Tsangarides the British Grammy-nominated record producer, sound engineer, and mixer, once again produced Lion’s Den, the band’s second album, and the follow-up to their debut 2011 release, “Destiny”. Tsangarides became a legend in his own time through his work with Gary Moore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy, to name but a handful. Tsangarides has also worked with pop-rock and alternative artists, including Depeche Mode and Tom Jones, which result in his Hard Rock productions having a wider appeal than most other typical releases in that genre. Dennis Ward, bass-player, producer-engineer and founding member of Pink Cream 69, mastered the album into an epic sounding melodic hard rock masterpiece.

Haelo

We give a very warm welcome to HAELO from Hungary. After several successfull demos and EPreleases, HAELO band (formerly known as After@All) was refounded and refreshed in March 2007 with new members and new plans. The new line-up started gigging around Hungary with full force and they also made efforts on introducing themselves in other countries, just like Germany, Austria or Slovakia. But meanwhile they did not forget to work on the debut album as well. Supporting KARNIVOOL in München, Germany (March, 2010) was probably the most important concert in the life of Haelo. Sharing the stage (and even the backstage) with the australian genius-band gave much inspiration and enthusiasm for the Hungarian guys. December 2011 Haelo was signed by Warner Music's Hungarian partner, Magneoton and the band came out with the 11-track debut album, called AGEUSIA. The new record was digitally released in 39 countries and also can be downloaded from iTunes.

We give a very warm welcome to PERTNESS from Switzerland. Pertness, thats true, indipendent Heavy Metal from the Bernese Highlands. The Album „Seven Times eternity“, which was released 2008, gave Pertness a recording contract with Karthago Records (Germany). The rhytmic, fast, melodic Powermetal songs got enthusiastic, not only locally but also beyond state.
The following album „From the beginning to the end“, which was released 2010, has been enriched with folk- and trash elements. In addition the very good sales figues, the album earned a lot of excellent critism. For example Metal Hammer 6/7 P: „With this album, Pertness really did everything right“.
Pertness live concerts are high-energy affairs. The guys, playing in kilts, deliver always a fast-paced, motion-rich show, already proved on different shows and festivals. The latest album "Frozen Time" was released on 9th of november 2012.

We give a very warm welcome to REBELSTAR from Netherlands. Rebelstar is a Dutch Rockband with their roots in Den Haag.Serge Naberman (vocals/guitar) and Martijn Niggebrugge (guitar) put their heads together a few years back to write Old Skool Hardrock with the influence of todays Rock and Metal, heavy riffs with catchy, very strong and melodic high pitched vocals. And with a very tight rhythm section consisting of Toine Vanderlinden (Martyr, HotLegs, My Brother Jake) on Bass and Richard van Leeuwen (Within Temptation, Adam Bomb) on Drums, it’s clear that we’re dealing with a new living and breathing Rock ‘n Roll machine! The last few years Rebelstar rocked at the Hard Rock Café in Prague (Czech), Winter Masters of Rock in Zlin (Czech), live performances at Stork on Air and 3FM, and lot’s of gigs in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Zoetermeer and of course our hometown Den Haag! In 2010 we released our debut CD Permanent Disaster. In summer 2013 with renewed inspiration, we have only one goal: going back to the recording studios to supersede our debut album. We succeeded, and how…! 10 brand new songs, musically diverse and with a strong production: REBELSTAR took this album to the next level. With guest appearances of SLEEZE BEEZ’ Andrew Elt and Chriz van Jaarsveld giving it an additional sleezy touch. And including the Youtube singles ‘Sick M.F.’ and its follow-up ‘In it for the Money’. At this point, REBELSTAR is more than ready to jump on stage to conquer The Netherlands,Europeand maybe The World…!
