- necro doom extreme din Lyon, Franta
"Karcavul are an extreme doom band coming from Lyon, France. This three piece goal is basically to cause as must disgust as possible throughout their murky and rotten doom. So rotten that they classify their own music as “Necro Doom Extreme” and i totally agree with that. Containing 4 slabs of some of the most necro doom, “Rawctaver” successfully impersonates his goal to the listener, leaving him uncomfortable and sick as possible.
The opening track “Varices”, that means something related to varicose veins, opens with one of the most obnoxious sounds to me… the irritating buzzing sound of flies as they fly around… i don’t want to even imagine it, i just had lunch. Karcavul is heavy. This whole orchestra of decay works very well as a whole even when they unexpectedly change the tempos from that dragged, filthy sludge doom to a storm of death metal filled with some blast beats as well. Another piece of horror pulled apart from Karcavul’s worst nightmare is “Sacamerde”, a brutal and heavy as fuck track, where the band keeps on alternating from slow to fast in a blink of an eye. Although the main influence of Karcavul is clearly sludge doom, there are also some death metal parts like in “Culacl Rnael”, where the bands immediately speeds up at a death metalish pace, layered with very deep growls causing the ground to shake below our feet. It closes with “Sépir”, a track that maintains under a steady reign, the alignment of horror that we had so far. Drinking influences from some of the most brutal genres in heavy music, Karcavul successfully managed to expose their (twisted) vision of the World. If i could resume this release in one word it would probably be: Devastating."

- hardcore/mathcore din Brasov
I Stared Into the Forest is a hardcore band from Brasov, Romania. Their sound is a mix of different hardcore styles, with emphasis on “real screamo” and metallic “math” hardcore and even hints of death metal.
 On 12th December 2012, ISITF released their second EP “Unframed Pictures of Our Epilogue” in the digital format. It will be available on vinyl through both Fading Halo Records and Ulterior Tapes in spring 2013. (fadinghalorecords)
Their record is one of those that keep getting interesting every listening, it blasts a raw blend of different styles of hardcore, metal and trashy riffs, along uptempo melodies and grindcore breakdowns. Fifteen minutes of experimental and frantic songwriting with perfect fitting screaming voice.” (wefuckinglastlonger

- experimental grindcore din Brasov
Coins as Portraits is a grindcore band from Brasov, Romania. They have been developing their sound since late 2006, with their first proper recording “Form and Structure, Storm and Fracture” released in 2011 by Fading Halo Records and Asiluum.

Coins as Portraits take a progressive approach to songwriting, pushing past genre boundaries. Their experimenting with grindcore involves unusual time signatures, dissonance and unconventional song structures. A form of extreme music that bears little resemblance to traditional metal. (fadinghalorecords)
String bending tech grind with back and forth growls and shrieks, asymmetrical and atonal riffs melded in caustic fashion with free jazz and bespectacled, psychotic experimentalism is the order of the day.” (metalunderground)

+ citeste prezentarea ultimului material Ruins - "Incidents" (germana)
Ruins aus Bielefeld mit ihrer ersten richtigen LP. Nach einem Demo und der Split-LP mit Kyrest startet die Band voll durch und haut eine sensationelle Platte raus, die in einer Liga mit den derzeit angesagten Neocrust-Bands wie Alpinist, Fall of Efrafa oder Kylesa spielt und dabei doch viel mehr ist als nur die nächste Tragedy-Kopie. Düstere, beklommene Atmosphäre, satte Soundwände, technische Versiertheit und eine unglaubliche Power und Wucht zeichnen dieses Monster aus. Die Platte beginnt schleppend und fesselt Dich sofort, zieht Dich in ihren Bann und lässt nicht mehr los. Düster, episch, packend und mit einer verzweiflungsgefüllten Stimme, die begleitet wird von alles zerfräsenden Melodien. Bei Ruins spielen u.a. Leute von Patsy o Hara, KPX und Shoyu Squad mit, die Band ist ohne Ende live unterwegs und diese fünf Songs mit fast 33 Minuten Spielzeit werden dafür sorgen, dass sie so schnell nicht vergessen wird. Gemixt in der Tonmeisterei Oldenburg, gemastert von Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) und mit wunderschönem Düsterartwork. LP kommt mit beidseitigem A2-Textposter, schwarzen Innenhüllen und Downloadcode. (twisted-chords)

Asculta aici Ruins / Kyrest split LP:

+ citeste prezentarea split LP-ului Ruins/Kyrest 
"Both bands play some intense modern neocrust-dbeat. We know the ruins-guys from bands like Shoyu Squad and KPX and so we expected a brutal liveset and we got it. For this split, Ruins recorded four songs with the help of Robin Völkert and brought it to a playtime of nearly 19 minutes. Kyrest tackle their songs in the same way, brutal and atmospheric neocrust with german and english lyrics. The kyrest-side of the record brings four songs in about 14 minutes. All the records come in grey, milky wax. So, all you friends of dark and doomy records, this one is for you." (bisaufsmesser)

Violentor & I.A.D. la Atelier d.i.y. [30.04.2013]

For the Dirty Speed Metal Tour, the Italian thrash-punkers Violentor are back in the area for a mini tour, accompanied by the Romanian black/death metal band I.A.D. (Inbreed, Aborted Divinity). After starting in Szeged, Hungary, on April 24th, the tour is only covering Romanian locations for the moment, in Sibiu, Slatina, Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca on the 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th of April, with the Romanian Thrash Metal Club as their main partner.

Founded in 2009 in the Tuscany town of Lucca, close to Florence (where they are located now), Violentor aren't like anything you could ever imagine, considering their picturesque and sumptuous surroundings. With two albums already released and one on the way, disciples of a sincere, direct and painful way, the former trio - now a quartet - Violentor is a well balanced mixture of elements from the three major genre that are the actual foundation of any extreme or traditional metal: heavy metal, thrash metal and punk. Of course, their Thrash is a little blackened, their punk is a little crust, and their heavy metal is very subtle. In conclusion, Violentor can be better described as Aura Noir only more punk or as Impaled Nazarene only more heavy metal oriented.

The band's guest for this tour are I.A.D. (Imbreed Aborted Divinity), another band that had to relocate, this time to Romania. Founded in Germany in 1999 by drummer Erlend Kappl, I.A.D. have already released a demo and two EPs and are working on their full length album that is going to be released in Romania. The band is no longer a surprise for the Romanian audience, due to their shows in the last year, including their appearance as an opening act for Absu, in Bucharest. I.A.D. are a honest black/death metal band, evolved from that amorphous manifestation of bands like Beherit or even Mayhem in their mid ages, 'till now, when they're more together and balanced. Without a doubt the trio from Petrosani is a good choice to complete the genre spectrum for the Dirty Speed Metal Tour.

Caino & Methadone Skies & Blight @ Atelier d.i.y. (28.04.2013)

CAINO este un trio(xGx - Bass and vocals Piparino - Drums Marco Fedro - Guitar and vocals) care cântă crust melodic și vin din Palermo, Italia.
Foștii membrii din trupele: Values Intact și L.E.A.R.N. au început o cercetare care a dus către un stil mai întunecat de melodic core si ritmuri de crust cu sludge.
Caino vorbește atât despre minciunile cu care religia a preluat omenirea în istorie și lobotomia de zi cu zi din cauza căreia oamenii încă suferă de  ignoranță , folosind atmosfera întunecată și obscură, un sunet puternic si versuri metaforice.

Blight înseamnă multitudinea de idei ce se ascund in spatele membrilor Victor, Vlad, Dragoș si Vladi si Vali. Sub ce forma ies ele la suprafață e complicat de descris, de aceea cel mai des am fost descriși ca Alternative Metal. Formația timișoreană nu ține cont de granițele genurilor muzicale încercând să creeze ceva diferit, descris de un sound agresiv și bine definit. In concertele pe care le-am susținut până acum, am avut plăcerea să împărțim scena cu trupe precum: Implant Pentru Refuz, The: Egocentrics, White Walls, Dystopia(HU), Kuriri(SRB), Torso(AUT), Haos sau Nomega.

...a blackened night...
Sambata 4 mai 2013
la Atelier DIY - ora 21.30


(USofA, cascadian black metal)
Featuring members of metal ritualists Fauna and dark folk band Vradiazei, Sadhaka create blackened metal informed by the wildness of Cascadia and the mystical tradition of the Vajrayana. Their delicate and devastating songs recall Scandinavian pioneers Ulver and At The Gates, as well as contemporary legends Neurosis. Their music is an offering to the ancient ones; a vision of life expressing all that is felt, holding nothing back, and knowing in a deep and immediate way that all of existence is impermanent, sentient, and sacred.
