Black Orchid Empire
Black Orchid Empire from the UK create songs in which the band effortlessly transitions from intense, beautiful melodic rock to progressive, heavy and technical in-your-face riffs. The technical, complex grooves and gigantic sing-along choruses ensure that the fan base of this up-and-coming band is growing considerably. Black Orchid Empire is a relentlessly close-knit live band and has built up a rock-solid live reputation. The band has toured with Skunk Anansie, Hed PE, INME and festivals such as Download Festival and Camden Rocks.
Giant Walker is a heavy progressive rock/metal band from the UK. This fast-rising band recently released their debut ‘All In Good Time’. The albumis a conceptual journey and experience, from gigantic riffs to melancholic melodies, neck-breaking groovers and ambient and dark soundscapes. Previous singles such as ‘The Fact in Fiction’ and ‘Katoomba’ have already received attention from major platforms such as Rolling Stone, Louder Sound/Prog Magazine, Metal Sucks and Metal Hammer, with the latter describing Giant Walker as “UK Prog Metal’s next big thing”!
