Black Iris

Coming together through a love of metal, rhythm and drop C, Black Iris combine melodic and destructive riffs, technical bass lines and pounding drum beats that'll get you moving or die trying.

The Fury

After spending a year jamming AC/DC and blues covers together in pubs around the Midlands, Andy Masson (Vocals/Guitar), Alex Masson (Bass/Backing Vocals) and Mike McQuillan (Drums) all relocated to Guildford, Surrey to study at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music. It is here they met Steve Balkwill (Lead Guitar), and joined forces in March 2009 to create The Fury - a super-tight, locally renowned and heralded young hard-rock band.

Circle Of Reason

A four piece alternative rock band from Southampton who draw their influences from a number of bands, such as The Smashing Pumpkins, QOTSA, Deftones, Coheed and Cambria, yet they still retain their own diverse and individual sound and style. Each song varies and that's what keeps you interested and listening. Their material is packed with soft and heavy guitar riffs, soaring choruses with warm vocals. They are a very versatile group and have songs ranging from melancholy instrumentals to heavy rock with prog and metal mixed in.
