heavy metal post-punk
-from Berlin, DE
-The city that never sleeps and struggles to pay the rent and find its soul gave the guitarist and songwriter LinnÚa Olsson inspiration for her new project. After leaving her native Sweden in 2012 where she had been active with metal punks SONIC RITUAL and as a music journalist for over a decade, LinnÚa relocated to Berlin, where she co-founded the short-lived but much celebrated heavy metal outfit The Oath, for which she was the main songwriter. After their early demise, she was asked to join Finnish post-punks Beastmilk on second guitar, which then changed their name to Grave Pleasures and went on to release the album „Dreamcrash“ in 2015. After a busy year of recording and touring, LinnÚa left the band in order to finally focus on something of her own.
Backed up by the rhythm section of In Solitude (bassist Gottfrid ┼hman and drummer Uno Bruniusson) and the Berlin-based imprint Teratology Sound & Vision, MAGGOT HEART released the EP "City Girls" to critical acclaim in 2017. Since then MAGGOT HEART has quickly risen to one of the most exciting and talked about underground rock acts of today. Known for her to-the-point guitar playing (influenced by Voivod, Killing Joke and Black Sabbath alike) and raw emotive lyrics, she has gathered a fanbase all across the rock genre board. Esoteric, aggressive and above all - honest.
-from Oakland, CA
-Ítzi is a dark post-punk trio from Oakland, CA, comprised of singer & bassist Akiko Sampson, singer & drummer Gina Marie, and guitarist K. Dylan Edrich. They are known for their intricate songwriting and their explosive live show. At times haunting and at times aggressive, Ítzi delivers a driving rhythm and the intertwining melodies of two vocalists blanketed by abstract guitar washes.
Since their formation in 2014, Ítzi has toured many parts of the world, billing with varied post-punk, punk and indie luminaries including the Chameleons, Pink Turns Blue, Deerhoof, Modern English, Actors, Kommunity FK, 13th Chime, Zounds, Screaming Dead and The Iconoclast.
Ítzi released a seven-inch EP, "Gong Show," on Long Way to Go Records in 2016. In 2017 came Ítzi's debut LP, Ghosts, recorded by Stan Wright of Arctic Flowers, and released on Near Dark, Psychic Eye, and Last Hour Records in the US and on Bat-Cave Productions in Europe. In 2019, Ítzi released “Part Time Punks Sessions,” a Peel Sessions-style EP produced by the Part Time Punks KXLU radio show, on Psychic Eye and Near Dark record labels.

-From the ashes of a putrid sacrifice
Upon the wings of the firebird
Erupting from seas of burning blood
The cacophonous chants of Total Death
