Saving Joshua, the band from Sweden, shows a combination of post-hardcore, metal and R&B. They formed during the winter of December 2007/January 2008. The band has gigged a lot around their native Sweden and played in most European countries.
This year, the Czech Republic presents them already for the second time.
Among the main bands is also one interesting project from Denmark, formed in 2001.
The Psyke Project plays a very harsh and dark kind of hardcore with influences ranging from Converge, Neurosis and Norma Jean. In November the band will record their 4th album.
Posthardcore Rise Above Dead comes from Italy and plays their first official EP recorded last year. Their new songs represent them typical darkened blend of post hardcore, crust and sludge metal. Heavy guitars and haunting vocals make the record sound like an electric funeral pyre. The music is complimented by the visual darkness captured on a superlative artwork.
5-piece act Placenta comes from Berlin and plays melodic death metal. They began as a punk band and since they’ve recorded two albums and one EP and already played countless shows all over Germany.
As other formation plays Eskimo Callboy .They don’t have anything with Arctic peoples in the Arctic region, but comes from Germany as well. This interesting band formed until last year. Catchy tunes, brutal breakdowns, a fine dose of electro and last but not least cheeky lyrics are pricing the young band.
