Witch Mountain - For fifteen years, Witch Mountain has flown the flag of doom over its cloudy hometown of Portland, OR. Formed in 1997 by guitarist/songwriter Rob Wrong (M99, Iommi Stubbs) and drummer/manager Nathan ‘Nanotear’ Carson (Point Line Plane, Two Ton Boa), the group has stayed loud and proud through a variety of lineups and musical epochs. Today, the band is recognized as a leader in some of the most renowned metal communities in the world—locally alongside Agalloch, YOB, and Red Fang—and internationally as part of the Profound Lore label and Nanotear Booking rosters.


Castle - Thrash-inspired Doom Metaller's Castle will release their second album "Blacklands" on September 11th on their new North American label Prosthetic Records. The band commented as follows: "We are proud to announce that Castle's dark vision has found a home with Prosthetic Records in North America. They are a label that looms large in metal and are as diverse and committed as we are to bringing original great music to legions of metal fans everywhere. With their help we look forward to doing just that with 'Blacklands'."


Serpent Crown - In 2008, singer/guitarist Dara Santhai and drummer Will Carroll joined forces to create Serpent Crown. Drawing from a variety of metal subgenres, particularly European and American thrash, the pair smelted aggressive, ultra-heavy, riff-driven music in the best Bay Area tradition. Dara combines a background in the fine arts with stints fronting metal outfits Ravana and Santhai. Will is a drum veteran, with experience in Old Grandad, Cutthroats 9, Scarecrow, Vicious Rumors, and Machine Head. Serpent Crown's first demo was recorded in 2009 by Black Cobra drummer Rafa Martinez, who also played bass on the recording. The band has since added bassist Dave Dinsmore, formerly of Bl'ast, LAB, Che, and Unida. In 2012, Carroll left due to commitments as the touring drummer for Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel, and was replaced by local drummer Ben Richardson (ex-Begotten, The A.K.'s).
