Lamb Of God
The roots of Lamb of God were planted in 1990 when Chris Adler, Mark Morton and John Campbell were floor mates at a Virginia Commonwealth University dormitory. Four years later (1994) the trio met up at Chris’s rental house in Church Hill, Richmond to make some noise. “There was no heat at the house,” recalls Campbell. “Kerosene fumes and Black Label beer were definitely what fueled our early days.”

“The best British metal band to emerge in years.” – Q Magazine
The Welsh metal-core band Bullet For My Valentine has spent most of the past two years taking over the world with massive U.K., European, U.S. and worldwide tours, sharing the stage with Guns N Roses, Metallica and Iron Maiden, playing the Main Stage at just about every rock festival on the planet, and seeing their 2006 debut album The Poison – an album London’s daily The Sun called “One of the finest debut albums in rock history” – sell more than one-million copies worldwide – 350,000 in the U.S. alone – a very rare achievement for an emerging band.
Formed in the summer of 2004 by guitarist Chris Petersen, CELLADOR is a melodic metal band from Omaha, Nebraska whose members ages range from a mere 18 to 24 years old. CELLADOR was founded with the intent of introducing aggressive European influenced melodic speed/power metal to the Midwest USA, where the style is relatively nonexistent. CELLADOR spent the fall and winter months of 2004 writing, rehearsing and, by March 2005, began playing live. By May of 2005 Cellador had released the demo Leaving All Behind. Impressed by their skill and musicianship, Brian Slagel offered the band a contract making them Metal Blade Records first USA based power metal signings in years.
