SEVEN ENDS from Limburg, Netherlands, was formed in the darker months of 2007 by guitarist Ricardo, vocalist Jan and drummer Cor. Soon Noud joined the band, bringing thunder with his bass, together with Tim on guitar completing the band. Tim’s presence was not very long, after about a year he was replaced by Leon.
SEVEN ENDS‘ musical style can be described as furious thrash/death metal. Speed and aggressiveness are the main ingredients, all flavored with a hint of melody and a grooving touch to it.
Their first EP was recorded in 2008 and it was time to hit the stage. Reactions to EP and live performance were overwhelming from the start. SEVEN ENDS played live with bands such Legion of the Damned and Torture Squad, and in summer 2010 they got their chance at the legendary Wacken open air festival in Germany after winning the Dutch Wacken Metal Battle, among the greatest names around in metal and rock.
In 2011 SEVEN ENDS finished recording their first full length album, mixed and mastered by no other than Andy Classen (Legion of the Damned, Belphegor, Tankard).
“To The Worms” is scheduled to be released on March 23, 2012 via Massacre Records.

ZERO DEGREE was formed in 2006 by Pascal, Tobias and Thomas.
Up to that, the three were part of other bands, but they decided to look for a new challenge.
Their purpose was to create music in the style of In Flames, Dark Tranquillity and Iron Maiden.
To recreate their music and harmonized guitar sounds live, they consequently needed three guitarists. Over the course of the year André, Maik and Sebastian joined the band.
The now complete line-up played their first shows in 2007.
Throughout their career the guys were able to share the stage with bands from different genres of metal. These included Eisregen, Maroon, Mercenary, Deadlock, Suidakra and Anima.
In 2007 the band produced their first demo “The Storm And The Silence” which was mainly used as promotion on MySpace and for concert promoters.
ZERO DEGREE’s debut album “Surreal World” is going to be released on March 23, 2012 via Massacre Records.
ZERO DEGREE are:
Thomas – Vocals
Pascal – Guitar
Maik – Guitar
