Sinheresy - New signing and debut album 'Paint The World'
Formed in 2009 and inspired by Power Metal bands such as Nightwish, Kamelot and Edenbridge, Sinheresy soon developed their unique blend of Metal by adding a wider range of influences going from the Dark sound of Sirenia and Within temptation to the Power/Progressive approach of Symphony X and Children Of Bodom.

Pursuing The End - New signing and debut album 'Symmetry Of Scorn'
Young and ambitious, Pursuing The End didn't aim to just survive in the crowded world of metal bands. Formed in 2010, the band from Parma, Italy, quickly got critics' attention with its first EP ‘Dawn Of Expiation’ (2011), whose songs ‘Followers Of The Wrong Way’ and the title track were included in compilations such as Kill City (USA) and Mondo Metal (ITA). Another EP, ‘Withering’, followed shortly in 2012, proving the constant growth of a band that has always believed in the commixture of musical genres - as the members' musical background includes anything from extreme metal to electronic music, not to mention the influence of classical music - but also in the commixture of visual arts in general, as it can be seen in the amazing video for the song ‘Withering’, written and directed by Mike Lunacy (from acclaimed melodic death metal band Dark Lunacy), which embodies all the features that make Pursuing The End unique: elegance and aggressiveness, science and spirituality.
After a consistent and ever-growing live activity in the past two years the band is going to release its first full-length album ‘Symmetry Of Scorn’ on Bakerteam Records. This new studio effort will reach a new level in Pursuing The End's music path: a heavy Melodic Metalcore scenery will blend with elements from the world of Pop, Dance and the distinguishing features of the band's previous works as well as symphonic melodies.
