Formed in the early 00's, DESERT became one of the mightiest forces in Israeli melodic Metal. Treading within the darker fields of Metal, while always tending a melodic composure, this band has already tasted the feel of touring across Europe. Recently the band successfully opened for the US Heavy Metal band CIRCLE II CIRCLE along with the Dutch LORD VOLTURE. Along the years, DESERT performed in Sabaton Open Air (Rockstad Falun), Total Metal Festival and Ayja Napa Youth Festival, sharing stages and supporting icons such as SABATON, KREATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, HELLOWEEN, STRATOVARIUS, DREAM EVIL, ANNIHILATOR, ELVENKING, BATTLE BEAST, TIM "RIPPER" OWENS among the many.
Formed in Nicosia, Cyprus back in 2003, WINTER'S VERGE slowly became the foremost Power Metal band in the Island. Whether conceptual or plain within the cold and darkened Winter felt music, the band have been keeping their grace and sound. Following their long years, the band took part in tremendous festivals such Prog N' Run Festival, 2nd annual Comic Con, Power Of The Night Festival and recently at the first edition of the Melodic Alliance Festival. WINTER'S VERGE also served as the main support for the Finnish STRATOVARIUS in their "Polaris" Tour back in 2010, along with supporting ROSS THE BOSS (ex-MANOWAR). Later on the band continued their run while sharing stages with MYSTIC PROPHECY, AIRBORN, BONFIRE, WOTAN and BLYND.
