Catacombe-Memoirs-2008-PMS

From the nfo: "For fans of Isis, Explosions in the Sky, Katatonia, Cult of Luna, Red Sparowes or Riding Panico! Catacombe is the solo Project of the musician Pedro Sobast, who is also the guitar player for the band Looney Tones. The project was born in mid 2007 through a process of mixed ideas, feelings and sound scraps made by the musician. The goal in near future is to present live the produced themes, counting with the participation of some friends, musicians of course!"

Obstacles-Decomposition_Of_Movement-2008-pLAN9

From the nfo: "Obstacles is the creative partnership between friends. The rest is sound." Not that much info and sadly, I can't find much about them, neither. At least three tracks from their record are online at myspace. Sounds not bad to me, you might want to give it a try if you like any of those Genres.

remastered, and retitled."
From the nfo: "French extreme progressive metal, an aggressive blend of thrash, death and progressive song structures and a harsh vocal. Speed, technique, aggressive measures, brutality, 7th Nemesis delivers it all. A release you need to check out if you like your metal extreme!"

Ephrat-No_Ones_Words-Promo-2008-AMRC

"Let’s welcome a new and extremely promising progressive rock act from Israel whose songs stand for a successful balancing act between traditional elements and the future of the genre. The band is called Ephrat, has found renowned supporters in Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), who mixed their debut album No One..s Words, and guest vocalists Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain Of Salvation) and Petronella Nettermalm (Paatos), and delivers a colourful mix of European influences and the atmospheric tone sequences of the Middle East - the benchmark data of a new group could hardly be more promising."
