NOVELISTS FR started early 2013 when Florestan and Amael Durand met former A Call To Sincerity members Matteo Gelsomino, Nicolas Delestrade and Charles-Henri Teule. Starting strong with the release of 6 singles, one every two months, which created the foundations for a strong and loyal fanbase from the get-go, NOVELISTS FR then released their debut album on Arising Empire in november 2015.

After touring Europe extensively with bands like For Today, Breakdown of Sanity, Dream on Dreamer, Silent planet etc.. NOVELISTS embarqued on a summer of 2017 tour with established bands WHILE SHE SLEEPS and NORTHLANE. Best way to conclude the »Souvenirs« (2015) album cycle. Finally back with a follow up album soberly named »Noir« released September 8th via Arising Empire in Europe and Sharptone records in the USA. This concept album, shows a growing maturity in the band’s music and confirms them as a very promising young band in the modern metal scene.

After supporting the album in Europe on tours with Make them Suffer, Eskimo Callboy, aswell as on their own headliner tour, 2018 brings new opportunities for the band, a headliner tour in Asia, and also their touring debut in the U.S.A. with Like MothS To Flames. In the summer of 2019, the band announces some changes had to be made on the name due to legal issues.

In October 2019, Novelists FR announces their new album would be released in January of the following year, after a month long Europe tour with Being As An Ocean.

NOVELISTS FR has become, in only a few years, a rising star within the progressive metal scene, and it seems they are now ready to confirm it by releasing their highly anticipated third effort.

Florestan Durand | Guitar

MISTER MISERY debut album »Unalive« out now and release music video for ’Alive’ and announce »MISTER MISERY – The Unalive Tour 2020«!

“Welcome to the new shock horror rock and metal generation.” – Rock Tribune

“A killer gothic circus show performing a soundtrack between Metalcore and Visual Kei. This mixture has never been heard or seen before!” – METAL HAMMER

“Here comes the new alternative metal sensation from Sweden! Horror and theatrical melodies in a mix between early Avenged Sevenfold and Wednesday 13.” – Rock Hard IT

“A super energetic album filled with very catchy, steaming songs that I won’t be able to get out of my system in the coming months.” – AARDSCHOK

“This is how I actually imagine a newcomer band in 2019.” – Hardline

“Once in a while a composition comes along that immediately grabs you. That happened to me in recent months with ‘My Ghost’ by Mister Misery. Is it the melody? Or the tempo? It’s a bit indescribable why ‘My Ghost’ made such an impression on me, but fact is, I can’t get enough of it. Musically you can feel the influence of eighties rock. A bit of Joan Jett and a bit of Def Leppard, but mega-strong. Mister Misery released one of the best debutalbums this year.” – Rock Portaal

“The melodies are carving their way unstoppably into the auditive ear tunnels and so there is one hit following the other. That’s what entertainment on a top-notch level looks and sounds like!” – Legacy

“I think Mister Misery, if the forces of evil are on their side, will sink their teeth into the bloody prize they so seek.” – All about the Rock UK

“Every track of “Unalive” will haunt your head for a long time to come! Newcomer of the month!” – ORKUS! Magazine

“They’re going to take the scene by storm with “Unalive”.” – Sonic Seducer

MISTER MISERY“We are so excited to finally release Unalive to the world. It has been such a crazy ride since the beginning of this year and we are eternally grateful for this amazing opportunity that has been given to us! We have worked so hard to make this happen and it would not have been possible without the amazing support from our fans and our labels Arising Empire & Contra Promotion.
This has been a dream of ours since we were kids and to see our band take shape in such a rapid pace is unbelievably amazing to us.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! We’re gonna keep doing this for many, many years to come! We hope that you enjoy our latest music video “Alive” and blast our debut album “Unalive” til your neighbours lose their minds.

Last but not least, we are maniacally excited to tell you that we are going on a headline tour in February called “The Unalive Tour” and can’t wait to start next year with our second, headline tour!


Much love from all of us in Mister Misery,

Harley, Alex, Rizzy & Eddie”

Markus Staiger (CEO Arising Empire): “Mister Misery from Sweden soon come up with their amazing debut album which could be described as a mixture of glam rock, metal and a touch of gothic! Marilyn Manson fans as well as all other heavy rockers should watch out and check the first clip „My Ghost“ – a phenomenal video production by Patric Ullaeus (The 69 Eyes, Dimmu Borgir, Within Temptation, Arch Enemy,  etc) This young band from Stockholm will kill it, it has been a long time ago where I was so excited about a brand-new band!”

Contra Promotion“We are very happy to welcome such a talented new Metal band as Mister Misery to our Artist Roster. The voice, combined with the songwriting and look of the band make Mister Misery an act with a very high, unique identity, which sets them apart from other acts in the genre. This convinced us to work with Mister Misery and we are sure that this band has an eventful future ahead of them.“

MISTER MISERY is a four piece metal band from the streets of Stockholm, founded in February 2018 by Harley Vendetta & Alex Nine. By blending high energy riffs with anthemic choruses and ripping guitar solos, they have managed not only to create a hype in the underground metal community, but also caught the attention of renowned founder of Nuclear Blast/Arising Empire, Markus Staiger, leading the band to sign a record deal with Arising Empire in 2019.
In addition 
MISTER MISERY has also signed with booking company Contra Promotion, housing bands such as NIGHTWISH, ANTHRAX, THE 69 EYES and many more.

MISTER MISERY
 just finished their self produced and mixed debut album, »Unalive«, that will shock the world as a first representation of a brand new band. Hungry to light a fire inside the hearts of the restless and broken around the world, MISTER MISERY not only delivers musically but pushes boundaries in their theatrical and chaotic performances. Resurrecting the wild spirit of the 80’s while also incorporating horror elements and classical composition, MISTER MISERY proves to be a promising virtuous and maniacal newcomer in the alternative metal scene.

Their brand new debut record »
Unalive« reflects the emotions and struggles of a journey taken by the four members, including death, jail time, abandonment, drugs and poverty. Through every individual experience they’ve managed to turn that misery into something inspiring, and with that inspiration managed to pull themselves up from the dirt and given life to what they now call MISTER MISERY.
The album title itself is inspired by their undead, vampiric look and it’s their way to depict visually what it felt like for them to be metaphorically dead on the inside.


In collaboration with 
Arising Empire and Contra Promotions, MISTER MISERY will kick-start their career and promote their debut album »Unalive« worldwide on October 4th 2019.
The future looks bright for these young metalheads and with a European tour starting October 10th to November 3rd they will end their most successful year so far.

“This would not have been possible if not Markus Staiger and the amazing team at Arising Empire and Contra Promotions believed in the band as much as they have. We are all very humbled and excited to start this journey together with the Arising family and all these talented people around us”- says Harley, Alex, Eddie & Rizzy

With »
Unalive«, MISTER MISERY shows their musical talent and showmanship right from the start of the journey, not holding back on anything. With their catchy choruses, insane writing and guitacomposition, with elements from every musical genre known to man, they are starved for stardom and to show the world how metal and rock is still alive and kicking in the 21st century.


MISTER MISERY are:
Harley Vendetta | Vocals/Guitars
Alex Nine | Guitars
Eddie Crow | Bass
Rizzy| Drums

Bay Area, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore first stormed onto the scene in 2007 with their debut album: »The Will To Survive«. Taking influence from bands like BLOOD FOR BLOOD, HATEBREED, and MADBALL; LIONHEARTcame out swinging with a full blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. They quickly followed it up with 2010’s »Built On Struggle«, 2012’s »Undisputed« and years of nonstop touring.

Following a short break after the release of »Undisputed«, the band came back stronger than ever with 2014’s »Welcome To The Westcoast«. The album debuted at #1 on both iTunes Metal and GooglePlay metal charts. Lionheart stormed onto the scene again in January 2016 with »Love Don’t Live here«. The album title, a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown song by the same name, shows the bands unwillingness to conform to the typical „hardcore mold“, as well as the bitter and unforgiving lyrical content the band is known for.
November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash »Welcome To The Westcoast II«. A sequel to »Welcome To The Westcoast«(2014), the album brought forth a new era in California Hardcore, and saw them again debut at #1 across the iTunes Metal charts and Google Play metal charts.

Now, after two years of relentless touring around the globe, Lionheart returns with their most punishing album to date:»Valley Of Death«. Backed by a combination of blistering metallic hardcore and heavy west coast groove, front-man Rob Watson offers a window into a life of torment, violence, and an unrelenting will to overcome.

LIONHEART are:
Rob Watson | Vocals
Nick Warner | Guitar
Walle Etzel | Guitar
Richard Mathews | Bass
Jay Scott | Drums

“We do not fit in any drawer, we are the whole closet!”

That’s how the musicians of the Berlin band ENGST describe themselves, following their own path since two years now. With an unconventional mix of German rock music, a spicy pinch of punk rock, pop elements and catchy melodies, the four guys from the German capital stand out clearly from the unified breadth of the broader music scene. In fact, this band has a lot to say, which is certainly related to the rich past of the four Berlin guys and is clearly reflected in the lyrics of frontman Matthias Engst. He himself grew up in a problem borough of Berlin, where he still lives today, and so most of their songs relate to autobiographical experiences of the 32-year-old singer. He addresses social evils in society and the growing influence of the political right side, against which the frontman and the band clearly site themselves. ENGST make clear that a position against fascism and xenophobia should not be a musical fad and therefore pick up on exactly these topics, without becoming one-sided, clumsy or striking. But also topics such as friendship, love or the little stories of everyday life find their appropriate place in the songs of ENGST.

The keyword “authenticity” is very important for the boys, so it’s not surprising that Matthias Engst rejected a label signing deal in 2015 after winning a music show (“The Band” with Samu Haber) at Germany’s TV channel Pro7 because they wanted to turn him into a model-pop star without an own personality. He decided to turn his back on the illusory world of TV and casting shows and to return to his own, not always shimmering and brilliant life, to follow his own visions for his musical career and found a serious band on himself.

ENGST are not only thrown together musicians who storm the stage together, but at the same time friends, family and fans of authentic, handmade rock music. With its rough edges, the band becomes interesting for a wide audience and at ENGST concerts, the boundaries between the stage and the audience are barely noticeable – with flowing sweat, euphorically boiled blood and the urge to sing out loud, it is impossible not to be spellbound by the boys’ pulsing live performance.

In 2017, the band found their fitting home at the label Arising Empire, releasing their first EP »Engst« in the same year. In addition to numerous shows, tour supports and festival concerts, the band constantly released new music videos and frenetically worked on their debut album »Flächenbrand« (Engl. “Major Fire”).

The musicians reveal that this album contains the most intimate and honest moments of their lives. During the production and development process of the songs, each band member had to suffer on private losses and setbacks, which would not have been possible to overcome without the unbelievable team spirit of the boys. The songs explain exactly the “Major Fire” and give an unfiltered insight into the rough and fragile soul of this band. The German guys have remained true to their mix of different facets, however, the album is noticeably heavier than the previous EP. In addition, the album is completed by a guest performance of the singer of the friendly band MASSENDEFEKT and the involvement of a brass section (who have also made music for THE BOSSHOSS) on two tracks.

Now, finally ENGST‘s time has come to show, without TV cameras and commercial breaks, what they really want to show – authentically, without making a detour and never again determined by others.

“We do not fit in any drawer, we are the whole closet!”

That’s how the musicians of the Berlin band ENGST describe themselves, following their own path since two years now. With an unconventional mix of German rock music, a spicy pinch of punk rock, pop elements and catchy melodies, the four guys from the German capital stand out clearly from the unified breadth of the broader music scene. In fact, this band has a lot to say, which is certainly related to the rich past of the four Berlin guys and is clearly reflected in the lyrics of frontman Matthias Engst. He himself grew up in a problem borough of Berlin, where he still lives today, and so most of their songs relate to autobiographical experiences of the 32-year-old singer. He addresses social evils in society and the growing influence of the political right side, against which the frontman and the band clearly site themselves. ENGST make clear that a position against fascism and xenophobia should not be a musical fad and therefore pick up on exactly these topics, without becoming one-sided, clumsy or striking. But also topics such as friendship, love or the little stories of everyday life find their appropriate place in the songs of ENGST.

The keyword “authenticity” is very important for the boys, so it’s not surprising that Matthias Engst rejected a label signing deal in 2015 after winning a music show (“The Band” with Samu Haber) at Germany’s TV channel Pro7 because they wanted to turn him into a model-pop star without an own personality. He decided to turn his back on the illusory world of TV and casting shows and to return to his own, not always shimmering and brilliant life, to follow his own visions for his musical career and found a serious band on himself.

ENGST are not only thrown together musicians who storm the stage together, but at the same time friends, family and fans of authentic, handmade rock music. With its rough edges, the band becomes interesting for a wide audience and at ENGST concerts, the boundaries between the stage and the audience are barely noticeable – with flowing sweat, euphorically boiled blood and the urge to sing out loud, it is impossible not to be spellbound by the boys’ pulsing live performance.

In 2017, the band found their fitting home at the label Arising Empire, releasing their first EP »Engst« in the same year. In addition to numerous shows, tour supports and festival concerts, the band constantly released new music videos and frenetically worked on their debut album »Flächenbrand« (Engl. “Major Fire”).

The musicians reveal that this album contains the most intimate and honest moments of their lives. During the production and development process of the songs, each band member had to suffer on private losses and setbacks, which would not have been possible to overcome without the unbelievable team spirit of the boys. The songs explain exactly the “Major Fire” and give an unfiltered insight into the rough and fragile soul of this band. The German guys have remained true to their mix of different facets, however, the album is noticeably heavier than the previous EP. In addition, the album is completed by a guest performance of the singer of the friendly band MASSENDEFEKT and the involvement of a brass section (who have also made music for THE BOSSHOSS) on two tracks.

Now, finally ENGST‘s time has come to show, without TV cameras and commercial breaks, what they really want to show – authentically, without making a detour and never again determined by others.

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME – »Death To Pop«

Long story short: DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME are going to save Rock´n´Roll! That´s right: ´are going to´! Not `want`! If a band is able to balance that easily between yellow press and metal press, and neither at metal festival nor on  mainstream television loses so much as an ounce of credibility that took decades to build, you have to ask yourself: „Gee, who else could save it but them?!“

Fronted by singer and guitarist Andy Brings, a true enfant terrible (`Celebrity Shopping Queen`) and successful filmmaker (`Full Circle – Last Exit Rock´n´Roll`) DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME present their second album, after their debut »Die For Rock´n´Roll« entered the German album charts on position 48 in 2017, and laid the foundation for Rock´n´Roll world domination.

Why is this band different? What makes them stand out and impossible to fully comprehend?
Andy Brings: „We are not here, to fulfill some expectations, or  give the people the usual clichés that have been tried and tested in Rock and Metal for the umpteenth time. We are not influenced by  Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath and don´t consider ourselves to be great musicians. We are deeply rooted in Punk and Metal, but we try to write the perfect pop song with our own means.“

The perfect pop song? According to the album´s title pop must die, so what´s the deal here?
Brings: „`Death To Pop` is a great statement, and by that we want to express, that we reject everything which is not truthful and therefore cannot survive. Especially Metal has become terribly boring and predictable, and is spoonfeeding the listener the same ready-made stuff over and over, and became worse pop than pop itself. I´d rather wish death upon bad metal than bad pop, because I don´t give a damn about bad pop. rock and it´s values on the other hand are very near and dear to our hearts.“

And those values are quite obvious on »Death To Pop«: love in all its facettes (‚Whore’, ‚Cocaine Lips’), living a self-determined life, rejection of conformity (‚We Cannot Be Ruled’, ‚Death To Pop’), and the desire for freedom and adventure (‚Tonight’, ‚Souls To Sell’).
Like the debut album `Death To Pop` was produced by Andy Brings, but this time he handed over the reigns to his friend, mentor and legendary producer Uwe Hoffmann. On Spain´s Costa Blanca and in the band´s home in the infamous Ruhr area of Germany an album came to life which Hoffmann regards as „one of the best albums I have ever been involved with“. Given his body of work consisting of countless megahits (DIE ÄRZTE, SPORTSFREUNDE STILLER, TERRORGRUPPE etc.) that says a lot. Andy Brings: „Uwe is the ultimate king for me, I look up to him unconditionally. His word is the law to me. Working with him is the biggest possible artistic fulfillment for me and we are a great team. That goes for my bandmates Slick Prolidol (bass, vocals) and our new old drummer Markus Herzog as well.“

The sound on »Death To Pop« is more mature than before, e.g. by adding female backing singers, so the true grandeur of these minipunkrockmusicals that rarely break the 3 ½ minute barrier can finally unfold. With this bigger line-up DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME wants to go on tour in 2020.
Brings: „We don´t use backing tracks, what you see is what you hear, as a trio or with six people on stage. If we want to play with the DCS BIG BAND we will do it. Our own joy and energy has always been our strongest weapon, besides the songs. We are fully aware that we polarize, but we don´t care. It comes with the territory. Fun fact: everytime a hater actually sees us their knees get weak.“

This band knows no boundaries and/or restrictions, and will definately bring back fun and action into Rock´n´Roll, just when you thought it was safe again.

»Death To Pop«  will be released via Arising Empire on the 25th of October 2019.

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME are:
Andy Brings | vocals, guitars
Slick Prolidol | bass, vocals
Markus Herzog | drums

Press quotes:

“They’ve followed up their crashing 2016 Hollow debut with a record that plunges deeper into both big concepts and the dynamic potential of the genre itself.”
“Vocalist Florent Salfati and guitarist Nicolas Exposito manage the jagged, unwieldy shifts between luxuriant melody and serrated madness with a verve that’s equally parts classically heavy and up-to-date cutting edge.” – 
 Kerrang

“If you’re craving metalcore with more depth, soul and artistry than the average, Marseille’s Landmvrks have you covered.” – Rock Sound

LANDMVRKS’ adventure first started back in 2014, originally under the name of COLDSIGHT which lasted for their first few years. Florent Salfati and Nicolas Soriano founded the project with diligence and determination, and soon they started looking for motivated and experienced musicians to join their fold. This ceaseless motivation would be the key to driving the band towards creating their completely unique universe.
At first, Florent Salfati played the guitar – back then he was also the singer for a band called HATE IN FRONT. LANDMVRKS struggled to find a singer that would fit the band’s universe. The line-up was almost complete after Rudy Purkart (bass) and Thomas Lebreton (Guitar) joined the band.
In 2014, after testing various singers without success, the band decided that Florent should become the frontman. At the time, they also asked their friend Nicolas Exposito (ex-WHERE EAGLES DARE, STRAIGHTEN THINGS OUT) to take the position for the vacant guitarist. The final line-up was there, and that is when the band’s name changed from COLDSIGHT to LANDMVRKS.
For two years, the band composed songs, recorded and started playing local shows by sharing the bill with bands such as FIRST BLOOD, MORE THAN LIFE and little by little, LANDMVRKS started making a name for themselves in the French metalcore scene. During this time, the band released a few singles and videos to help build up their fan base.
In May 2016, LANDMVRKS released their first album »Hollow« entirely produced by Florent Salfati and Nicolas Exposito. They decided to release this album independently, and went out touring on the roads of Europe to showcase this opus.
They seduced their audiences with a modern metalcore style peppered with hardcore riffs and catchy choruses. This album helped secure them slots on big festivals bills such as Hellfest in 2016 and Longlive Rockfest, helping to strengthen their reputation.
In 2018, the band signed a contract with Arising Empire for their second studio album. This record has a more mature approach with the band delivering a richer result, with more definition and taking influences from hardcore and 90s punk-rock.
The band comments: “We are very happy with the result, this album is the fruit of almost three years of intense work and we think we managed to get our music where we wanted to take it.”
‘Fantasy’ and ‘Scars’ are the first two singles taken from their second full-length creation,  demonstrating how successfully the band has managed to build their name and assert its own style.

LANDMVRKS are:
Florent Salfati | Vocals
Nicolas Exposito | Guitar
Paul C. Wilson | Guitar
Rudy Purkart | Bass
Kevin D’Agostino | Drums

Bay Area, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore first stormed onto the scene in 2007 with their debut album: »The Will To Survive«. Taking influence from bands like BLOOD FOR BLOOD, HATEBREED, and MADBALL; LIONHEART came out swinging with a full blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. They quickly followed it up with 2010’s »Built On Struggle«, 2012’s »Undisputed« and years of nonstop touring.

Following a short break after the release of »Undisputed«, the band came back stronger than ever with 2014’s »Welcome To The Westcoast«. The album debuted at #1 on both iTunes Metal and GooglePlay metal charts. Lionheart stormed onto the scene again in January 2016 with »Love Don’t Live here«. The album title, a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown song by the same name, shows the bands unwillingness to conform to the typical „hardcore mold“, as well as the bitter and unforgiving lyrical content the band is known for.
November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash »Welcome To The Westcoast II«. A sequel to »Welcome To The Westcoast« (2014), the album brought forth a new era in California Hardcore, and saw them again debut at #1 across the iTunes Metal charts and Google Play metal charts.

Now, after two years of relentless touring around the globe, Lionheart returns with their most punishing album to date: »Valley Of Death«. Backed by a combination of blistering metallic hardcore and heavy west coast groove, front-man Rob Watson offers a window into a life of torment, violence, and an unrelenting will to overcome.

LIONHEART are:
Rob Watson | Vocals
Nick Warner | Guitar
Walle Etzel | Guitar
Richard Mathews | Bass
Jay Scott | Drums
