One of the few Hungarian metal acts recognized and credited worldwide – have always been the wanderer of untrodden paths since their foundation: the band combines dark, atmospheric metal with brass instruments.
The band was founded in 1993 and they were the first extreme metal band in the Hungarian underground signed by a Western European label.
After the critically acclaimed The Pagan Winter demo tape (1995), the debut album (Phantoms) was released by Mascot Records / II Moons. Phantoms was voted for Album of the Month by Netherlands’ biggest metal magazine Aardschok (for the first time for a black metal in the history of the magazine). Still today, 22 years later Phantoms is credit as one of the best Hungarian metal albums ever by Recorder Magazine in their home country. The second album The Haunting was also a great success, lifting the band’s perspective to a higher level. Sear Bliss have never stopped in their 26 years career, continously producing albums, always changing, never releasing the same album under a different title. The band made several European tours and worked with such great record labels as British Candlelight Records. In 2016 Sear Bliss signed to the well-known Dutch metal label Hammerheart Records. The highly acclaimed 8th album entitled Letters from the Edge saw the light of day in the summer of 2018. More than 26 years after the birth of the band, Sear Bliss still showing the same energy and enthusiasm – after an eventful period with many shows and summer festivals in 2018 and 2019, the band is currently working on new songs.

Olympus Mons is a doom / death metal band formed in 2019 in Bucharest, Romania, with Alex Toderasc, Cristi Lincu, Cristi Filipescu, Victor Frunza and Antonia Plesca as founding members. The band launched its first album, HEALER, only two years after its inception, under the guidance of Mark Mynett. HEALER was recorded just after Olympus Mons won the grand prize at Posada Rock 2020 and features Aaron Stainthorpe from My Dying Bride and Stacey Gaunt from Plague of Angels on several tracks. In just three years, Olympus Mons has become a true rising star for the modern doom metal genre, though all OM compositions are a melange of many musical styles – from classical to metal – and personal musical journeys of each of its five members.
