Aura Noir
Aura Noir
Aura Noir formed in Oslo in 1995 as a result of Aggressor and Apollyon's frustration with the metal underground’s trends and fads. They saw a gap that needed to be filled with something real, something metal. They intended to create a band that combined influences of 80s luminaries such as Sodom, Celtic Frost, Venom, Voivod, Dark Angel etc. Thus, black thrash metal was born.
One of the first underground death/thrash outfits to rise from Sweden. Merciless are also the first band to sign on the underground record label Deathlike Silence Productions owned by Euronymous of Mayhem fame with their first full length The Awakening (Anti-Mosh 01).

Broke up in 1994, but reformed fully in 1999.
Ares Kingdom
Ares Kingdom
The band spent the majority of 2013 in the depths of Very Metal Sound, rehearsing ten new songs for their upcoming third LP.
Half the album was rehearsed by the time the band changed gears to rehearse older material for a gig in Chicago on June 22nd with Sathanas and Malas. The second - and final - show of 2013 was headlining Houston's Destroying Texas Festival 7 on November 16th, appearing along side Imprecation, Obeisance, HOD, Sacrocurse, Perversion, and others.

The band's covers album, Veneration, was released in June 2013 by NWN! Productions on LP and CD. The band funded a limited edition run of picture dics, which are only available from the band at shows or through the AK website.

It was originally conceived as an EP that would allow the band to experiment with different studio techniques that were not used during the recordings of 'Return to Dust' and 'Incendiary.' However the project grew to album length after they decided to include tracks by their former bands, Vulpecula and Nepenthe - songs which had only been played live and in rehearsal.

The experiments were a success, and gave Veneration a thicker and heavier - yet equally chaotic - sound compared to 'Return to Dust' and 'Incendiary.'

By the end of the year the band was rehearsing the final song of the new album. Additional time will be spent in early 2014 tightening the new material, and recordings will commence soon thereafter - fitted around an appearance at the NYDM Spring Bash (in Milwaukee) on April 25/26, with Possessed, Morbid Saint, Internal Bleeding, Dr Shrinker, Masoleum, Prime Evil, and many more.
