1476 — Salem, Massachusetts
New England’s +1476+ creates dark, atmospheric, album-oriented music that draws upon elements of many genres including metal, punk, neofolk, and ambient. They harbor an energy & mood that reflects the environment of the old, haunting landscapes of New England’s coastal regions as well as their spiritual/philosophical interests and practices. As a two-piece, they are completely self-contained — writing, recording, and releasing their albums & EPs through their own imprint and studio, Seraphim House. As of 2016, +1476+ has the honor of working with Germany’s Prophecy Productions.
Völur — Toronto, Ontario
Drawing from folk melodies, heathen spirituality and trance-inducing doom, Völur weave a hypnotic web of chthonic noise on the yawning gap of silence. A deep sound that moves through melodies, riffs and timbres slowly as a seeress chants rites for souls long past.
Shadow Fashion — San Antonio, TX
Reminiscent of 1980's New-Wave, Shadow Fashion's signature sound is Electronic Rock. The music is layered with synthesizers and merged with edgy rock-guitar driven riffs.
