Witchtrap
Witchtrap
Formed in Medellín, Colombia in the early 90s by drummer "Witchhammer" (Hugo Uribe) and guitarist/vocalist "Ripper" (Carlos Uribe).

As they were influenced by 80s heavy and thrash metal the brothers decided to leave the death metal band, "Dark Millennium," that they were members of at the time and form a new group. Initially the group was made up of just the two brothers providing guitars, vocals and drums, and they made no recordings until 1997.

In 1997 they released their first demo, "The First Necromancy", which was recorded without bass. The following year a second demo "Turn In Your Graves" was recorded the same way, but due to economic problems, it was never released.

Sometime after this their song "Metal Mania" was featured on a compilation of local metal bands called "To Meet The Storm."

In 2000 they were contacted by Colombia's Malignant Productions who released a vinyl mini-album entitled Witching Metal, limited to 500 copies. At around the same time Darkmoon (4) was recruited as a full time bassist and was included in the recording sessions for "Witching Metal". The following year Hell Attacks Productions signed the band to release their debut full length album Sorceress Bitch on CD.

Late in 2002, Darkmoon (4) was fired from the band and soon replaced by Edison Gil (AKA Enforcer).

In 2004 "Desecration Of Evil" from "Turn In Your Graves" was featured on "Ataque demoniáco Vol. 1" a compilation issued on vinyl released by the South American label "Dark Desires Productions" and the French label Ordealis Records licensed Sorceress Bitch from Hell Attacks Productions.

In 2005 the band founded their own label Dirty Sound Records. One of the first actions of the label was to purchase the rights to Witching Metal from Malignant Productions and reissue it on CD. Additionally the North American label Utterly Somber Creations licensed Sorceress Bitch from Hell Attacks Productions and released a picture disc version which featured "Metal Mania" as a bonus track. Following this the Japanese label Obliteration Records released The First Necromancy, a CD that compiled both of their original demos as well as "Metal Mania" from the "To Meet The Storm" compilation.

In 2006 after six months of mixing and mastering No Anesthesia was released by Dirty Sound Records.

Hugo, Carlos and Edison are also members of the Colombian band Nightmare.

Black Mass
Black Mass
Black Mass is a Three-Piece Thrash Metal Band formed in early 2012. With influences ranging from 80's Thrash Metal and Death Metal bands, "Black Mass" has formed to bring back the true Thrash Metal sound. Their love of the 80's Thrash Metal era, combined with OSDM bands such as Death, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse are two very big influences, among many others, that inspired this band to create their own style of Thrash Metal.


The line up consists of:

Brendan O'Hare - Guitar/ Vocals
Cristian Azevedo - Bass / Vocals
Alex Fewell - Drums

In late-August/early-September, Black Mass recorded their debut album at the BrickHit House in Hyannis, MA with Sound Engineer Sean Fitzpatrick titled "The Second Coming" with original artwork/album design by Graphic Designer/Artist Adam LoRusso.

Their debut album "The Second Coming" was released on February 18th 2013 as a digital copy, and soon to be released as a digipack format.

In April 2013, the band went on their first tour titled "Rotting In Europe 2013" with North Carolina-based Death Metal band Bloodsoaked (Comatose Records), Hate Storm Annihilation (Illinois), Short Fuse (California), and Psychiatric Regurgitation (Texas), through Germany, Poland, and the Netherlands for 10 days.
