Tengger Cavalry
Tengger Cavalry
Tengger is the name of the sky god of Mongolian grassland. Created in 2009 by the bandleader Nature Ganganbaigal, Tengger Cavalry blends overtone throat singing, Mongolian horse-head fiddle and other nomadic music tradition of Central Asia with heavy rock music, creating a unique music genre – Mongolian Folk Metal
Felix Martin
Felix Martin
Felix Martin, an ambidextrous, Venezuelan-born guitarist who moved to America after winning a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee School of Music.
Felix is pushing music into new boundaries by mixing Metal with different styles such as Jazz, Progressive, World, Latin, Fusion, etc. Although his style is mostly called Progressive Metal, he is often cataloged as Jazz Metal, as he sometimes writes straight ahead Jazz mixed with Metal.
Felix uses his self-designed 14-string guitars, which are two regular guitars in one, standard guitar. Felix created a completely new way of playing the electric guitar by performing simultaneously with two of them as if was one guitar. This opens up a new and hidden world of the electric guitar. Felix pioneered this style of playing at the age of 13, and as of 2014, he remains the only one in the world who plays this way.
Felix and his band named under his name has shared the stage with acts such as Steve Vai, Mike Portnoy, Tesseract, Scale the Summit, Devin Townsend Project and have toured most of North America, South America and Europe.

"Years of Winter is an astounding, crushing, massive debut by a band who not only seem to know damn well what they want in terms of a sonic signature, but are fully aware how to get it." - Heavy Blog is Heavy

"With or without vocals (not to say they are irrelevant) the music is humbling, crushing and so dense it builds its reality around you. Life may have its joys, but albums like this one open a window and invite you to jump in their own dimension for a while. If you like this type of musical experience, Years Of Winter might just end up being one of this year's highlights for you as well." -Metal Hammer Bulgaria

"Kansas City progressive metallers Existem immediately call to mind the melodic structure and songwriting approach of both Textures and The Ocean — which is cool on its own — but there’s a lot more going on here. The vocals are a nice breath of fresh air, and I hear influences as deep and disparate as Opeth and Scale the Summit...Tell me if I'm crazy for thinking this band is phenomenal or if I'm on to something." - MetalSucks

After four years, two EPs and a full-length, Existem's journey is still only just beginning. The progressive metal four-piece has become one of the most talked about bands in Kansas City and are poised to extend their reign far beyond. With a new album in the works, a polished live set and a growing fanbase, Existem is showing no sign of stopping their pursuit of prog-metal greatness.

Sicocis
Sicocis
When the situation calls for more than sheer aggression, when it calls for something more symphonic, more dynamic, more epic… the situation calls for SICOCIS.

Las Vegas’ premier metal band, SICOCIS blends influences from the melodic death, epic power and dark progressive scenes to create their own unique and modern sound - a grandiose and theatrical mix of power, progressive and thrash metal with symphonic melodies, conceptual themes and dramatic hooks. Over the past six years, the group has earned extensive regional acclaim (including being named “best local metal band”by Vegas Rocks) and shared the stage with the likes of Dark Tranquillity, Insomnium , Devin Townsend, Amaranthe, Dragonforce, Unearth, TesseracT, Kamelot, and Kataklysm.

After first making waves with their debut EP “Revelations End” SICOCIS - who self-produces and self-records their own music, in addition to handling all graphic design, cover artwork and video creation themselves - has returned with their first full-length, REQUIEM OF THE WORLD, a dynamic experience that represents and highlights the facets of the group’s evolving sound. The album’s first singles, “We Shall Rise”and “Beyond the Quantum Waves,” have been featured in several publications and included on prominent compilations such as ProgPower USA and The Full Metal Sampler (distributed on the recent Warbringer/Enforcer North American Tour).
