"From the darkest depths of underground music there was a newborn monster named Omega, which heart stopped at some point, nobody knows when exactly, why or how, but the monster was left for dead. Within its last breath, the monster cast a spell into the night giving life to another creature, this new creature had all the monster’s memories and conscience, but it had nor shape or figure, he decided he would not let himself die again so he took several forms until he could find the one that was the better fit for him, but in order to not forget his promise to himself, he took some parts from the body of the diseased monster and named himself in a way that he would make sure he would stay as with a low profile while getting bigger and stronger, he swore that name wouldn’t also be forgotten by no one once they hear it. He growled into the night and that’s how his path started."
Hello there readers! We hope you liked this introduction for this industrial goth band project ‘Needless Cane’ we made since there’s not a full biography in their official sites. We know it all started in Wellington, New Zealand with former Needless project named Omega in which he was the frontman he reunited with the also Omega’s former member Ruby in 2012, they both reached out with Emlyn James a.k.a ‘The Grem’ (Omega’s former drummer) and then the formation was completed with guitarist ‘Morgandrogyny’.
They managed to record an EP named “The sun did not shine” which led them to some tours around their country. Thanks to the exposure and the attention they got things got a lot more serious and they decided to hit the studio and record their first full-length album ‘Sick World’. The album was released on November 17th of 2017.
The album counts on 9 tracks, filled with darkness and stories you will want to hear in case you’re not the Disney story kind of child. Their sound resembles in some way like Marylin Manson and Tiamat. The credit for all lyrics goes to Needless Cane himself, the music, mix and mastering comes from the hand of Jeremy Garner.

Rising J-rockstars Esprit D'Air are crowned winners for best metal/hardcore album at the 16th Annual Independent Music Awards announced at New York's historic Lincoln Center on March 31, 2018.
The winning album, 'Constellations' was selected by an esteemed artist and industry judging panel which included Slayer, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Tom Waits and Sepultura, among many others; as well as press and talent buyers from the Americas, Europe, and Pacific Rim.
'Constellations' was produced by lead vocalist and guitarist, Kai, who follows a commendable DIY ethos by composing, recording, producing and mixing everything himself, whilst working with Kobalt Music Group's AWAL (Artists Without A Label) to distribute their music.
The album exclusively premiered on TeamRock last summer, and received coverage and airplay on HuffPost, Kerrang! Radio, TotalRock Radio, NEO Magazine, and PowerPlay.
Esprit D'Air embarked on a 7-day UK headline tour (Constellations Tour) in February 2018, including a packed headline show at the world-famous The Underworld Camden in London. The touring line-up featured Ryo Takahashi on guitar and Jan-Vincent Velazco of Pendragon (pictured) on drums.
The band is now looking to extend their Constellations Tour to Europe and to release brand new music this year—more details to be announced soon.

Devils, Witchcraft, black masks and goat horns: these are the essential ingredients behind Luna 13, a very peculiar evil Bass/Metal project that, over the last couple of years, was able to build a solid reputation for itself and get signed by the eclectic label Cleopatra Records.
Hypnotic singer and Burlesque dancer Lilith Bathory joined producer Dr. Luna in 2015 and since then managed to combine EDM to Black Metal, creating a whole new genre in the Dark Music niche and becoming the first EDM project to win metal awards.
They also shaped an extremely suggestive, theatrical performance, perfectly in line with the occult imagery they incarnate, but, although their ability on stage cannot be doubted, their live performances are not always welcomed.
It happened last November when one of their horrifying live shows was interrupted by the management of the Artisan, a live music venue in Las Vegas, due to a breaking of their 'nudity code’, as Lilith Bathory performed a blood-drinking ritual wearing only her panties.
This accident didn’t stop Luna 13 from achieving the spotlights and being noticed by Sleepdogg Promotions, who have now included their brutal show into their roster.
“It is our chance to bring a truly dark, controversial show into larger venues,” the duo states. “After a few years of venues going into fear about allowing Luna 13 on the big stage, Sleepdogg Promotions finally opens the door.”
Although the project only started out in 2015, Luna 13 are collecting some thrilling results.
Described as “one of the most brutal electronic projects on Lucifer’s green earth” from Horrornews.net, the duo placed itself right on top of the Amazon Electro Chart with the latest release “Lilit”. They are also listed as one of the top 5 Black Metal projects by leading music blog Worldwide Underground and starred in the movie Devil’s Domain, featuring well-known actor Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill).
With Sleepdogg Promotions finally giving recognition this duo’s mesmerizing stage presence, nothing can stop Luna 13 from becoming the best representation of the next generation of Metal.
