Tristana broke up in 2016 and its members Pete, Laco and Dusan started working on a new project. Than they were joined by the drummer Elevo who had left the band Depresy and who collaborated with Tristana on their last album “Virtual Crime.“ Argentinian Christian Vidal, the member of Therion, was the last one to join the project.
In 2007 Christian Vidal got a place in “ The Road Voltures “ , the band had a purpose of returning former Mr. Big vocalist Eric Martin. In 2010 he came to Therion as a new guitarist. In 2017 he was collaborating with Russel Allen on concerts in South America.
The new project’s sound is groovy. Tuned down guitars are supported with electronic samples. Some guests were invited for the recording as well such as Thomas Vikström ( Therion, ex- Candlemass) who sang his parts in the song “ Save Me “.
"In the last days an important new member has joined the project. We will announce the name later, but I am sure it will be a nice surprise“ , said Pete Wilsen, the singer of Vox Tristanum.
Song “ Stop “ is a good example of what you can expect from the new project.
"At The End Of Times", the new album from Austrian Death / Thrashers Darkfall, will be released on September 8th via Black Sunset / MDD. With a running time of 55 minutes divided into 10 songs, "At The End Of Times" was mastered by Andy Classen on Stage One Studio and features the band's trademark: brutal and epic riffs, blasting drums and harsh growls.

Slovakia's own Wastage are a brutal blend of thrash, hardcore and metalcore with no-nonsense lyrics about dystopian society we live in. As a relentless workhorse, they have already shared the stage with the likes of Sepultura, Decapitated, E-Force, Obscure Sphinx and many more, quickly rising through the ranks in the heavy charts among the bands from Central Europe. Featuring former members of Xibalba, Stone Cold Bitch, Eternity and The Weed, Wastage is definitely a powerful dark force to be reckoned with!
One of Slovakia's long standing metal bands Mysterious Eclipse, has taken a unique turn in how to get your music out to the masses.... by CD trading.
Formed in 1996, the quintet have maintained a recognized brand image throughout their career within the underground metal scene. Since their inception they have release one demo (1998), one MCD (1999) and four other major releases (2005, 2008, 2010, 2013) including 2013's "Hell Of Pain".
Fronted by Peta Kity Siazikov, this Melodic Black / Death Metal outfit are a gem within the Central European nation and certainly are well worth trading with.
This idea may be in place already, but the whole idea of it is great for those bands who are separated by mountains, vast seas, you name it, the whole idea is a great way to get music out to overseas bands, sure the online sharing is obvious. But with this in mind, you can never lose the music on a CD (unless you snap it), whereas online if your site goes down, you've lost possible music sharing opportunities.
This idea certainly gives a new reason to why people should abandon the mp3 in favor of something more valuable and investment-worthy.
