AUTISM [Post Rock / Post Metal, Lithuania]
After releasing "Film Noir" - an album, filled with gloomy sounds and unconfortable topics - the band Autism spent most of the year playing their music live. At least 20 shows played in the span of 10 months. As the dark season approached, the focus shifted towards creating something new.
The last three months birthed the first few fragments of what`s to come. New ideas bringing new sound and new themes. First experience of this is about to happen.
ROSK [Post Metal, Poland]
The light is gone. The stars fell from the sky and the sun rose higher than ever. I see a swamp of human thoughts, glued together with plague and filth. My fingers are stained with black grease.

North Bend [Experimental / Drone, Latvia]
The trio, that has deprived its name from the small town of North Bend (US) which hosted the events of a television drama Twin Peaks, plays murky and odd-timed instrumentals that blend different styles of music which very well might accompany the listener through different moods and situations of the modern life that is presented to us every day
