Tengger Cavalry
Tengger Cavalry

Felix Martin
Felix Martin
Felix Martin, an ambidextrous, Venezuelan-born guitarist who moved to America after winning a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee School of Music.
Felix is pushing music into new boundaries by mixing Metal with different styles such as Jazz, Progressive, World, Latin, Fusion, etc. Although his style is mostly called Progressive Metal, he is often cataloged as Jazz Metal, as he sometimes writes straight ahead Jazz mixed with Metal.
Felix uses his self-designed 14-string guitars, which are two regular guitars in one, standard guitar. Felix created a completely new way of playing the electric guitar by performing simultaneously with two of them as if was one guitar. This opens up a new and hidden world of the electric guitar. Felix pioneered this style of playing at the age of 13, and as of 2014, he remains the only one in the world who plays this way.
Felix and his band named under his name has shared the stage with acts such as Steve Vai, Mike Portnoy, Tesseract, Scale the Summit, Devin Townsend Project and have toured most of North America, South America and Europe.
Helsott
Helsott
Formed in February 2010, Helsott is America's answer to the extremely popular Pagan Metal genre. Musically, Helsott incorporates many different styles and genres, always keeping a fresh and enjoyable listen that doesn't get stale. The diverse music is centered on the Pagan Themed lyrics which unite the album as a whole.



Helsott's popularity has been growing at an extremely rapid rate. After quickly becoming heroes in the Southern California region, promoters in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange County markets quickly took notice of the work ethic and draw of the band, and rewarded Helsott with their choice of touring acts to support.

These great opportunities were seized by the band sky-rocketing their popularity regionally, and placing the band on the radar of Rock the Nation USA, who offered the band a spot on the popular "Paganfest 2013" lineup which they were the only North American act on the entire North American tour in support of Ensiferum, Tyr, Heidevolk, and Trollfest. Knowing the value of this opportunity, Helsott seized the moment, and made sure to take advantage of the crowds they would be performing in front of. The EP, Folkvangr sold out of all copies very soon on tour, and merchandise sales were impressive every night of the tour, forcing early supply reorders.



The demand for a full-length Helsott album was great, so they developed a successful crowdfunding campaign via indiegog to fund the album. They were able to raise over $7000! With "Woven" now complete, Helsott is looking to cement their presence in the halls of metal, and looking to ally them-selves with a reputable record label to help attain the international recognition to help nurture the environment for a successful band.
Anthrocene
Anthrocene
Dystopian metal chronicling the (last) time of man. Anthrocene is a modern metal band that takes influence from Iron Maiden, Pantera, Lamb of God, In Flames, and Opeth; an homage to classic metal with a modern heavy metal twist.

Anthrocene (an·thrō: human, of a human being; sēn: geologic time period) performs fictional songs of a what became of the “time of man” and the events leading up to and after the earth being turned to glass. Anthrocene was formed in 2014 by founding members Jesse Mazur (Guitar), Danny Tormoen (Guitar), and Matt Ward (drums) and later recruited Keith Wyss (Bass) and Boris Sagal (Vocals). The band spent the first two years of existence solely focusing on writing and producing a strong technical sound before playing any shows. In 2016 the band took the stage and are a regular staple to the Pacific NorthWest music scene, opening for regional touring acts and headlining local shows.
