CYBER10 Metal Storm VI

CYBER10 Metal Storm Melodic Epic Folk Melodic Symphonic Brazilian Finnish Finland Suomi

Organizing this compilation was a very pleasant job. I could meet some guys and I could also listen to some good new music. I consider this compilation a compilation of "Modern Metal" but surely it doesn't mean New Metal and this is the most interesting, I could gather here bands which play a kind of modern metal but without influences of the American New Metal. As typical of Metal Storm, you're going to listen to some Melodic Power Metal but now with some Electronic as extra and a touch of Symphonic/Epic tunes. The compilation starts with the song I consider an excellent work of Power Metal, really one of my favourite songs: Ride of the Valkyries of the band Delpht and it finishes with the great ballad metal of Santuario. There are also some important facts to highlight about this sixth volume: Astralion and Delohim are including their brand new releases, Arctrace is the first band of Singapore to be part of CYBER10 and all the bands representatives were very kind and positive when I offered the idea of being part of a compilation, good guys.

The band was formed in 1998, in Taubaté (São Paulo), by the brothers Thiago Lopes and Vitor Lopes. With more than 10 years of existence, the band developed it's own sound direction, which goes to the Melodic Power Metal with many elements of Prog Metal. The newest release is the single which is included in this compilation: Your Spirit Never Dies.

As another band from São Paulo representing its Power Metal tradition, Delpht started in 1994 but just recorded the first album in 2000. The wait was worthy, Screams of Ice is great release and it's about the story of the viking character Delpht. This name was taken from the Dutch town named Deft, also the birthplace of the famous painter Johannes Vermeer.

Unburied Conception 
Instrumental Metal one-man-project hailing from Finland. Unburied Conception mixes melodies with powerful guitars, being easy to identify influences of metal bands as Angra, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish and at the same time a touch of Hans Zimmer.

In 2002, Costa Rica, Osvaldo Ramos (singer and guitarist) got together with Geovanny Ovares (drummer) to form the band Evrock, what would later become Santuario. After some years, many concerts and even some member changes, Santuario became known in the metal scene of its country, taking part of important festivals. It's easy to see that they are well influenced by classical and symphonic music and also like to experiment new ideas.

Xe-NONE is a mind blowing combination of modern metal sound and electronic-dance grooves. The band draws inspiration from such musically diverse sources as Fear Factory, Scooter, Cradle Of Filth and 2 Unlimited. The band was formed in the mid of 2004 by Lexy Dance (male vocal, programming) and Newman (synths, programming). Since summer 2008 band line-up includes: Lexy Dance (male voice), EvilAnn (female vocal), Newman (synths), Fucker (guitar), Push (drums).

Soul Source 
Soul Source started in 2002 and in the early of 2003 they took part in a contest called “Young Metal Gods” held by at this point major German label called Noiserecords. Soul Source were voted to be one the Top5 metal demobands in Europe. The band takes the energy of the Power Metal to the extreme, combining it with good melodies.

Revontulet is a female fronted Symphonic Metal band from Moscow, Russia. The music of Revontulet combines enchanting mezzo-soprano of Alexandra, powerful rhythm section, complex orchestral arrangements and catchy melodies.

Last FM
Hasni Arctrace has been in the music industry in Singapore since the age of 16, so that's 20 years now. He plays the guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. He has been in and out of many local bands from metal to ska to contemporary pop and he is currently recording as guest musician for various local artists as drummer and doing guitar arrangements.

Rising from darkness where dark and gloomy metal has ruled for centuries. Carrying a bright spark of change, a light in the dark. ASTRALION, a bone-braking, ear-battering blend of Pop, Rock and Speed Metal served with ultra-high positive energy.

Last FM
Kerix is a Progressive/Gothic Metal band created in 2001 which released an EP named New Land in 2003. The band has the female vocals of Priscila Silva (soprano) and they form a choir with all the band members.
