The Zenith Passage
The Zenith Passage
It was in early 2012 that a small recording collaboration between two friends (Justin McKinney and Greg Hampton) began to coalesce into something that would prove to be well more than the sum of its parts. The Zenith Passage may have come about from humble beginnings in a stuffy Los Angeles apartment, but the produce thereof is anything BUT humble. Even the earliest demo tracks delivered a relentless torrent of technical guitar work accompanied by a distinctly frenetic and brutal vocal delivery that has since become an unmistakable hallmark in a scene that is all too often the victim of stagnation. Far from being strictly a shredfest, TZP also incorporates a thematic backbone that draws inspiration from the chaotic and awesome destructive powers of our universe. Progressive interludes invoke a palpable sense of abstract dread and reverence for things beyond mortal comprehension. The atmosphere created clearly nods to inspiration drawn from legendary acts such as Deeds of Flesh, Soreption, Fallujah, Severed Savior, and Aeon.
Line-up:
Greg Hampton - Vocals
Justin McKinney - Guitars
Rob Maramonte - Guitars
Michael Hoskins - Bass Guitar
Luis Martinez - Drums

The project's initial offerings generated enough buzz in social media circles alone to convince the duo to redouble their efforts in earnest, and to begin seeking out members to complete their lineup. This proved no small task in a saturated market, but persistent scouting over to following months precipitated the addition of friend and drummer Josh Slater (Aethere) into the mix. The subsequent release of a proper EP in January 2013 (entitled "Cosmic Dissonance") catapulted TZP's recognition to previously unprecedented heights, greatly broadening their fanbase, and catching the attention and admiration of some of California's foremost metal musicians. Not long thereafter, it was announced that Rob Maramonte (ex-Fallujah) would also be stepping in to lend his talents and fill the role of second guitarist.
With the onset of all these new developments, and the lineup nearing completion, it seemed only natural to take the next step and join the ranks of those by whom they had been so heavily influenced. Thus, in the summer of 2013, TZP had the honor of signing on with Unique Leader Records for a multi-album deal. The stage is currently set for TZP to secure their foothold in topmost reaches of the metal pantheon, and they are hard at work churning out new content for their debut full-length. Rest assured, this marks only the beginning. The world has only just set foot onto the passage towards the pinnacle, the apex, the Xenith. BLEGH.
Exhumed
Exhumed
Exhumed was formed in the US in 1991 by Matt Harvey (guitar, vocals), Col Jones (drums), Derrel Houdashelt (guitar), Jake Giardina (vocals) and Ben Marrs (bass). They soon entered a studio and recorded their first demo, "Excreting Innards", which consisted of six tracks. It was released in the start of 1992 along with two other demos, "Dissecting the Caseated Omentum" and "Goregasm". In 1993 the 7" EP "Excreting Innards" was released and shortly after the band began playing live. Ben was eventually forced to leave the band, but Jake took over bass duties along with vocals. The demo "Cadaveric Splatter Platter" also followed in 1993 along with "Grotesque Putrefied Brains" which was the last release to feature Jake since he left the band. He was replaced by Mark Smith (vocals) and Matt Widener (bass). Marks stay was short and he was replaced by Ross Sewage.

In 1994 the sixth demo, "Horrific Expulsions of Gore", was released. It was followed by the live split, "Deterioration of the Senses", with Haemorrhage. After this Matt Widener left the band but Ross took over his bass along with vocals. They then released another split, entitled "In the Name of Gore", with Hemdale. Several line-up changes and more 7" splits with various bands were released throughout the years. In 1998 they finally released their first full-length album, "Gore Metal" through Relapse Records.

"Slaughtercult" followed in 2000 and "Anatomy is Destiny" in 2003. The compilation album "Platters of Splatter", which included almost every song made by the band, was released in 2004.

The band more or less dissolved in 2005-but never say never.

Wormwitch
Wormwitch
An early incarnation of the Vancouver, BC based group started as more of a hardcore/punk band but as the band’s influence of Celtic Frost, Darkthrone and Disfear started showing up more in their music, they chose to rebrand themselves as WORMWITCH. The quartet released their first EP, “The Long Defeat” in October 2015 and by early 2016 had already premiered a new track, “Coffin Birth”, which No Clean Singing described as a “high-octane rush of deep, grinding riffs, piston-driven drumming, and thundering bass, with a heavy-as-hell production.” It was then that they caught the attention of PROSTHETIC RECORDS and soon a worldwide deal was struck.
