SPREADING THE DISEASE
The brain child of Steve Saunders, STD have toured around the UK with their heavy sound, influences range from Nu-Metal to Thrash and Heavy Rock. The band's music is contemporary and modern with amazing riffs, hooks and licks multi layered full of groove that hit you like a freight train.
The Heretic Order are a new modern-sounding classic metal band, based in London, and influenced by Hammer House of Horror movies and 80s metal: Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate and the like.
Incorporating on-stage theatrics with a powerful combination of searing riffs and blistering solos to enhance their pagan and occult philosophies, they have become an impressive spectacle to watch since their incarnation in 2014, offering a refreshing and exciting edge to a stagnant metal scene.
The Heretic Order have since played at some of the UKÃ¢ÂÂs major metal festivals, including Bloodstock 2016, Hammerfest 2015, and Mammothfest 2016, gathering excellent reviews from the metal press in the process. In addition to countless gigs around the country and some European outings, such as the 2016 Metal Lorca festival, they have supported metal legends Exodus, Diamond Head and Wolf, making a major impact on the UK metal scene.
DEATH VALLEY KNIGHTS
Death Valley Knights play proper Heavy Metal! - Terrorizer
Its during the blazing solos that every song comes alive! Their magnificently histrionic fretboard shredding is air guitar nirvana... now Shred!! - Kerrang
DVK are so very tight, playing a bruising rendition of traditional metal that appeals to all Judas Priest acolytes - Metal Hammer
DVK appear to combine the power of traditional metal with contemporary sensibilities, blending razor sharp solos with big riffs and even bigger choruses - Zero Tolerance
DEATH VALLEY KNIGHTS have a lot to offer here on their debut E.P. The guitar work is excellent, bolstered by BrillÃ¢ÂÂs skilled, aggressive drumming. The vocals are good, but itÃ¢ÂÂs the songwriting that is the real X-factor here. ItÃ¢ÂÂs evident that the band has a good feel for their instruments, and each track is well-written, flowing seamlessly from section to section, with no instruments unduly grabbing attention away from the others. Ã¢ÂÂNothing Left To StealÃ¢ÂÂ is an entertaining listen from beginning to end, and should be on the radars of all fans of classic-minded Heavy Metal. - Metal Temple
Death Valley Knights are one to watch out for! This is one storming EP full of riffs, attitude, and old school sound! - TBFM review

Amnesia rose to prominence on the back of their one and only album release entitled Unknown Entity in 1991. They were an integral part of the British Thrash Metal scene performing with the likes of Sabbat, Xentrix, Toranaga, Slammer, Terrorvision and Metal Church to name a few. Forming in 1986, as a group of Sheffield school friends studying at Stocksbridge High School, they honed their craft resulting in the aforementioned recording which heralded them as potential saviours of British Thrash. The group though disbanded in 1993 after a number of line-up changes.
Founder members and guitarists, Simon Fairhurst and Clive Heeley have teamed up again with vocalist Simon Rose, and to complete their line-up Amnesia have recruited the services of drummer James Moore and bassist Deep Mazumdar.
