‘Everyone can hide their dangerous side, keep their demons locked up in a cage but they will still linger on, starving for blood! Your nightmare can take on many shapes... Even the shape of a small bug. But what seems small and harmless can bite you, poison you, kill you. Nature brings life... and death. Predators and prey. Now what or who is OCTO CRURA, you may ask? Well, they are somewhere in between. Not quite human, not quite creature. Guided by their insect queens their reign has just begun! Listen closely and perhaps one day, you will discover their most terrible secret...’

Step into the glorious world of horror, poetry and insects! The Italian group OCTO CRURA takes you into an imaginative and exciting realm that has never been seen or heard before, filled with dark melodic songs supported by the growls and screams of frontwomen Kaitlin and Van whose vocal pitch resembles the one of Maria Brinks from the band IN THIS MOMENT. Their new album ‘Tagmata’ pulls you in with their unique sound of industrial metal meeting melodic death metal and coming together as one to form the most perfect fusion! By putting out their feelers into both directions, they have managed to create compositions similar to the work of JINJER, ARCH ENEMY, BUTCHER BABIES and INFECTED RAIN!

Let the arachnid queens and their band spin a cocoon around you with their sensational new album 'Tagmata'

FALLCIE - Volcano

Be ready for the hottest album of the year: 'VOLCANO' by FALLCIE!

Thunderous growls meet intense and clean vocals within the music of the Russian female fronted extreme metal band FALLCIE. Combining catchy refrains with raging drums and igniting guitar licks, they have already gained many loyal fans across the globe and completed 6 headliner tours throughout Europe. The band attracted attention with their first single 'Rock'nRolla' in 2017 and has so far toured with artists like NILE, VADER and HATE ETERNAL.

In the spirit of acts like JINJER, INFECTED RAIN and inspired by bands like ARCH ENEMY, BUTCHER, BABIES, THE AGONIST and OTEP, this band creates a realm of their own! With her flaming hair and powerful vocals, the front woman Valentina switches with ease from raving screams and growls to crystal clear singing just like the legendary Corey Taylor from SLIPKNOT!

'Volcano' takes you through the burning wastelands of a unique extreme metal soundworld, starting with the gripping first track 'Helpless' which feels like the prelude to an electrifying dark journey! The song 'Hollow' embodies not only stormy drums, powerful and rhythmic screams but also a captivating melody throughout the chorus. The thrillingly heavy sounds get interrupted by the dark and calming interlude called 'Exploring the universe' which instantly gives off 70s and 80s gothic vibes. The tongues of fire seize you back into the blazing pit, as the front woman Valentina intensifies her growls and screams within the eerie track called 'Heart of Darkness'. The album closes off with a catchy number titled 'In Waves' and leaves you longing for more of FALLCIE's stimulating fire!
