Formed in Arizona during the latter half of 2010, Rituals is a five-piece band from Phoenix that combines elements of doom, post-metal, and post-rock to create an atmosphere of complete and utter despair. The band's beautiful symphonies never cease to collapse under the incredible weight of intense human suffering in what can only be described as a truly cathartic musical experience.


DeZafra Ridge, the five-piece band from Leipzig, Germany, creates a dark cold atmosphere, slicing heavy fog while delving into spiritual abyss. Inspired by ancient mythology, contemporary culture, personal themes and introspection, Dezafra Ridge fuse varied metal genres in a monotonous style.
