Crom

https://www.facebook.com/cromla

Ghost

https://www.facebook.com/thebandghost

Standing motionless and anonymous beneath the painted faces, hoods and robes which their sect demand, the six nameless ghouls of Ghost deliver litanies of sexually pulsating heavy rock music and romantic lyrics, which glorify and glamorise the disgusting and sacrilegious, with the simple intention to communicate a message of pure evil via the most effective device they can find: Entertainment. This is Black Metal at it's most original and deceiving; compositions such as 'Ritual' and 'Death Knell' majestically weave their melodic spell of evil through the senses until the listener finds themselves utterly possessed and open to any diabolical suggestion.

Cemetery Piss

https://www.facebook.com/cemeterypiss

“Cemetery Piss started back in 2011 as a side project from Dirck and I's psych punk band Vincent Black Shadow," explains the band's Adam Savage. “Fueled by a mutual appreciation for cheap red wine, fine cured meats, Bathory, Darkthrone, Iggy & the Stooges we swiftly recorded our Rest In Piss demo along with the help of Akai, our drum machine. Now with four Vultures in our wake, with the addition of Rebecca Chernoff on bass and Derrick Hans on drums, we present the Order of the Vulture LP on Cricket Cemetery. We hope this altar of death, perversion and celestial desecration satisfies your lust! Fuck your way to hell!” - Decibel Magazine
