Shokran started as a Groove/Djent/Oriental Metal solo project by Dmitry Demyanenko in 2012, with the debut EP Sixth Sense. In 2014, the solo project transformed into a full-time band, and Shokran released its debut album Supreme Truth followed by extensive Russian tours & critical acclaim. As the group found their footing, there was a change in the line-up, and they were joined by their current singer, Andrew Ivashchenko, and bass player Valery Yushkevich.

The band was set to release their 2nd album entitled Exodus in 2015 but delayed the release after receiving interest from several record labels including Sumerian Records. During the negotiations, no agreements were ultimately reached, and the band decided to release Exodus on their own in September 2016. It was a conceptual work, that describes the 10 Plagues of Egypt, each song on Exodus tells about each Plague. The record took the band to an altogether higher level. Shokran gained new fans around the world, reunited with their original bass player Rodion Shevchenko, completed several more tours and began to compose their latest album ETHEREAL, which was released on February 8th, 2019 and debuted #2 on the U.S iTunes Top 100 Heavy metal albums.

Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit.

In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.
