Demolizer

ABOUT

You can look for your battle vest. DEMOLIZER is the newest member of the Mighty Music family!

Demolizer, formed in 2018, plays gut-crushing, hard-hitting, and unfiltered thrash metal that will have you picking up your teeth with crushed fingers after barely surviving the pit.

Demolizer is the manifestation of a big, angry middle finger pointed towards the Establishment, giving you the hardest, fastest, and thrashiest thrash metal you could ever dream of! If you like Slayer, Exodus, and/or, Municipal Waste, then you will love these guys.

2019 brought a place in the finals in the Danish W:O:A Metal Battle as well as a demo + single – both D.I.Y-produced and now released on Spotify. 2019 was also spent touring Russia and Denmark, as well as the completion of the new debut album, “Thrashmageddon”! 

Thrashmageddon was recorded, mixed and mastered at Ballade Studios by Lasse Ballade himself: 

Demolizer possesses everything that the Danish metal scene has been missing. It’s 100% intensity and aggression without any unnecessary fucking around. But what really caught my attention with DEMOLIZER is that they can really write songs. Songs full of riffs and hooks, and songs that stick to your mind like a piece of gum under your left sneaker after they’ve torn you apart in the pit”.

“Thrashmageddon” will be released via Mighty Music in September on both CD & vinyl.

Line up:
Ben “Polle” Radtleff: guitars, vocals
Aria Mobbarez: guitars
Bjørn “Krölle” Hjortgaard: bass
Max Petrén Bach Hansen: drums

I’ll Be Damned

ABOUT

Mighty Music is bursting with pride to announce the signing of I’LL BE DAMNED. The Danish quintet plays God Damned Rock’n’Roll exclusively, explosively – and with a metal edge. The band started out in 2010 and consists of five guys paroling against rulers and organized religion. The members come from different backgrounds but are all deeply rooted in the Danish rock- and metal scene.

I’ll Be Damned has released an EP and two full-length albums so far, the latest being “Road To Disorder” in 2018, after which the band embarked on a tour in the home country with fellow Aarhus-band Baest. Since then the project has gone through line-up changes. Now, with a new vocalist and drummer, they are viciously eager to return to the scene.

Apart from two headlining tours in the home country, I’ll Be Damned has played a lot of shows in Germany, as well as Copenhell, Grimfest, SPOT Festival and festivals alike back home, and has supported the likes of Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, D:A:D, Airbourne and even Metallica.

The band just played Nordic Noise – Streaming For Vengeance – the world’s first two-day hard rock streaming festival – and subsequently signed a deal with Mighty Music/Target Group with the intention of taking the next step to the next level. The punchy 2020-edition of I’ll Be Damned comprises:

SOULS OF TIDE

ABOUT

Have you ever wondered what 70´s rock band would sound like today?

Souls of Tide is somewhat strangely assembled as the background of these six experienced musicians grew from both rock and metal. The members are known from bands like Trollfest, Wyruz, SARKOM, Porterville, Dead Maple, Matanzick and Opel. This clearly flavors their style and sound to ensure a diverse and colorful musical palette when creating their music. Straight to the point songwriting and melodies with a desire to hook the listeners, are backed with a tight rhythm section alongside a breathing hammond organ. The rude mood rhythm guitars lay the basis for a screaming lead guitar and the table is finally set for the powerful and edgy vocals to establish the mood.

The music is highly influenced by various bands from the 70´s, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and The Doors. Souls of Tide continue their legacy to evolve the music to something different and unique. This all resulted in one stand-alone single, one EP and one full-length album since the beginning in 2014. The last album “Join The Circus” was released in 2016 through Mighty Music. They have played various gigs, festivals in both Norway and Denmark, where they also joined the Quireboys for a UK tour.

“Black Magic” is set for release 22.05.20 On LP and digital.

Conny Bloom

ABOUT

“So here we are finally! I am now working with Target Group from Denmark for my solo stuff. They did a great job on the last Electric Boys album so coming up next is the release of my new album Game! Set! Bloom!!”

He’s got an unmistakable and natural rock star swagger, yet at the same time is a salt of the earth kind of guy. That’s Conny Bloom, one of the most charismatic frontmen in Swedish rock music.

As a teenager Bloom, born as Ulf Conny Blomqvist in Stockholm 1964, learned his trade in bands such as Road Rats and Neon Rose but found success and fame in the early 90s as the center of attention in influential – and still active – groove rock combo Electric Boys. However, as a solo artist he’s doing something completely different.

On his two latest albums, he’s singing in Swedish. Musically and lyrically you could put him in the tradition of, say, Pugh Rogefeldt and Stefan Sundström, storytelling folk rock with traces of psychedelia, funk and 60s pop.

As a songwriter, Conny Bloom moves between seriousness and humor. He has a unique way with words, says he sings the way he talks and there’s no reason to doubt him since that swagger of his means he always walk the talk.

Syztem7

About

Syztem7 is a genre-blending rock band from Seattle, Washington. Decidedly different, but hauntingly familiar, Syztem7 writes songs that could be the soundtrack for a dark future just over the horizon. Described as a “unique fusion of industrial, metal and experimental” by the Exotic Underground, the band has created a sonic signature all their own.

Syztem7 have finely honed their craft in front of cheering audiences far and wide, playing with Zakk Wylde, The Genitorturers, One-Eyed Doll, Thrill Kill Kult, Lords of Acid, King’s X, members of Armored Saint and Ronnie James Dio’s band, The Dreaming, and many others. “We pull from such varied musical backgrounds,” says bassist Nathan Raynes , “that it makes us easily accessible to fans of grunge, punk, metal, funk and alt rock.” Guitarist Jaymz Kennedy is fond of quoting one particular review of their shows, “They described us as a unique blend that could be the love child of White Zombie and Faith No More, with Rammstein for a mistress.”

While Syztem7 has accomplished an amazing amount in the years that they’ve been together, it seems the best is yet to come. Their packed show schedule, burgeoning online following, unique sound and exciting new material all point to only one direction: straight up.

Having just played with Rob Zombie & Marilyn Manson the band is getting ready to release their brand new album “Evolving” to be released on November 29th 2019.

Jaymz Kennedy – Guitar

Wayward Dawn

ABOUT

Hailing from the soil of Skanderborg, Denmark, Wayward Dawn plays intense and relentless death metal. The band drags the listener into a cavernous world of vicious nihilism and monstrous soundscapes with thundering double bass pedals, pulverizing basslines, and downtuned guitars played through classic Marshall amps. With inspiration from both old school and modern death metal, Wayward Dawn delivers a combination of ferocious tremolo-picking and blastbeats, slow and crushingly heavy passages, and epic choruses. Venomous words of human and societal decay complete the picture with savage roars, abysmal growls and rotten screams.

Since its formation in October 2015, Wayward Dawn has, among other things, played at Aalborg Metal Festival, SPOT Festival and supported bands like Nailed to Obscurity (DE), Jinjer (UA), BAEST (DK) and Red Warszawa (DK). With mentions in prominent magazines such as Metal Hammer and GAFFA, the band is known for its hyper-energetic live shows with constant use of the windmill headbanging technique and manic interaction with the audience.

Wayward Dawn released their critically acclaimed debut album “Soil Organic Matter” on August 31 st 2018. The album was recorded and produced by Jacob Bredahl in Dead Rat Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails, Full of Hell).

Stargazer

ABOUT

If you are into “in your face” classic melodic hard rock with elements of Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Whitesnake, Dio and Deep Purple; then Stargazer is a band for you.
Stargazer’s first album received great reviews from the hard rock-based media all over Europe back in 2010. Now, 9 years on, Stargazer is back with their second album entitled “The Sky is the Limit”. After years of struggle on the tiny hard rock scene of Norway playing festivals and support for bands like Jorn, Stage Dolls, DAD, Gary Moore, Nazareth and more, Stargazer are now ready to take on the world.
The line-up consists of founding members William Ernstsen on guitars and Tore André Helgemo on vocals. New members are drummer BP Hovik (Peer Gynt, Ronni Le Tekrø+Terje Rypdal) and last but not least, on bass Erik Svendgard. Erik has played with JORN, Mickey Moody of Whitesnake, Kee Marcello of Europe, Torstein Flakne of Stage Dolls and a lot more.

On the recordings for this album you will listen to the bassplaying of Morten “Morty Black” Skaget (TNT), and drums by Morten Skogstad (Stage Dolls). Morty Black also played on their debut album, whereas Skogstad is in with Stargazer for the first time. A fun fact is that the only time this rhythm section has played together on record before this album, is on TNT’s classic album “Intuition” (1989)!

To mix and master their new album Stargazer has joined forces with star producer and guitarist Søren Andersen (Glenn Hughes) at Medley Studios, Copenhagen. The result is a modern production with a vintage twist.

With a worldwide release provided by Mighty Music at hand, Stargazer sets out to be a beacon on the hard rock scene. A bright shining star emerging with energy and power, capacity and skills, and a lyrical universe that both explores and recognizes the heart of darkness in humanity, yet fighting with passion always to light up a light in the gloom of nothingness. With Stargazer, you can hear and see evidence of the will to keep on keeping on.

This time around, Stargazer has reinvented itself and is now looking for venues and adventures outside of the Norwegian borders.
So, to conclude for the direction Stargazer is heading, you should just take a look at the album title and title track off their first single: The Sky is the Limit!
