MISANTHROPIA(NL), founded in 2005, is a symphonic black/ death metal band from the Nijmegen area in the Netherlands.
The band introduced themselves to the metal scene through the 2006 release of their debut album “RISE OF NECROPOLIS”. They performed at many shows and festivals before recording their 2010 album “SLANG DES DOODS”. This was the band’s first collaboration with Mike Wead (lead-guitarist of, among others, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Bibleblack, Nattas) who mixed and mastered the album. This fruitful collaboration resulted in a superbly sounding album; thus, many gigs and festivals were imminent.
After many line-up changes, MISANTHROPIA were ready to start recording a brand-new album in 2015. Because he did such a wonderful job in 2010, Mike Wead was asked to mix and master this album, too. The drum tracks were recorded by Mike in Studio Soulless (Grave) in Stockholm, and later, Mike Wead and Simon Johansson (Wolf) finished mixing and mastering the album “OMERTÀ” in the SolnaSound Recording Studio in Sweden. As expected, the results are astonishing!
The album’s artwork is by Jan Örkki Yrlund (Darkgrove Design), who has also designed album covers for Manowar, Korpiklaani, Impaled Nazarene, Sirenia, and many others.
Thyrgrim (DE) “We don’t reinvent Black Metal – we give it the right face! Instead of mindless musical experimentation, we use well proven styles to create new art with old traditions. Hate, wrath, sadness and depression. Our music is born from the simplest, most primal emotions, and reflects the deepest pits of human existence in every song. Raw and direct. Without compromises. Thyrgrim does not have to hide behind symbols, satanism, rivets, neither blood nor horrid appearance. We build a realm without any subtile imagery. A realm of coldness and hate.”

Nyrst formed in 2013 as a 3 man black metal band influenced by bands such as Bathory, Emperor, Immortal, Taake and various death metal bands. In 2014 two members were added to the lineup and shortly after the band started writing their own music and played several gigs in the Reykjavik area.
