InSammer – one of Sweden’s most promising metal bands which combines dark, pulsating Nordic grooves with Eastern European lyricism and melodic romanticism. Their live shows throb with emotional energy, Vika Dola’s voice ranges from a whisper to a full-throated growl and melds with the instruments as verses explode into churning, hypnotic choruses and pounding, crowd-mesmerizing riffs. Band members call their sound as ‘transfusion metal’, a heavy mixture of alternative rock and nu metal, which evokes the shifting musical styles and feelings that pour over them and infuse their performances. The band was created in 2011 in Stockholm by Vika Dola and guitarist Dennis Wise. Their new EP “Seeds” is scheduled for release in March.

Line-up:

Vika Dola – vocal

Dennis Wise – guitar

Oleg Izotov – guitar

Nikita Simonov – bass

Teodor Alexuta – drums

Ketha is an alternative metal act from Poland. Soon after releasing their debut “III-ia” (2008), Ketha played several festivals and shows (with Vader, Riverside, Blindead, Antigama among others) and toured Europe as a supporting act for Minsk. The band’s second full length album entitled “2nd Sight” came out in 2012. With almost completely new line-up (keeping MrTrip as the only “original member”), Ketha returned in 2015 with a release of  “#!%16.7” EP. Band kept its musical growth and ven¬tured on a journey to the outer rims of heavy music, mixing twisted metal grooves with horns and electronics. The record received very high ratings in music media, with several places putting the EP on the list of “best records of the year”. “0 hours starlight”, the fourth release from November 2017, takes Ketha to the next level bringing music that is way more straightforward, dense and even more unique. Strong riffs, heavy grooves combined with catchy vocals and great production turned the record to be Ketha’s most mature so far. Lyrically, album is devoted to human emotions, asking questions about personality, being individual and consequences of choices.

Line-up:

Michał Bartosik – bass

Maciej Dzik – drums

Bart Kaliszczak – guitar

MrTrip – guitar, vocal
