Russian Circles is a three piece instrumental band from Chicago. They flow seamlessly from beautiful soft ambience to truly defined melody to massively thick heaviness with a gradual progression that never leaves you lost.

Her Name Is Calla
Her Name is Calla are a four-piece from Leicester/Leeds who play music to make films to. They deploy sounds and textures to build personal images. They do not adhere to any genre, instead making music that grips them in some way. 'The aural equivalent of open heart surgery without anaesthesia. Simply perfect.' - Losing Today

Converge are a 4-piece American band, formed in February of 1990 in Salem, Massachusetts, United States. Playing a blend of extreme metal and hardcore punk, this pioneer outfit helped define a lot of the rudiments of the fast-burgeoning metalcore and mathcore genres. Still as marvellously aggressive and hostile as ever. Art played loud.

Explosions In The Sky
Austin-based instrumental post-rock quartet known for moody, cinematic compositions drawing from a number of sonic sources. With a reputation for scathingly intense live performances, Explosions in the Sky were touted early on in their career as the next phenomenon in moody and dynamic instrumental indie rock à la Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Eventually they became one of the genre's most commercially successful bands, scoring several motion pictures and being featured in countless other films, television series, and video games. 'These are tunes that twinkle and thunder like exploding stars, and show that there are still infinite possibilities in two guitars, bass and drums.' - The Guardian
