CROSS STITCHED EYES
The US / UK / German collective Cross Stitched Eyes, follows
in the tradition of anarchist punk and demonised death rock
(Rudimentary Peni, Amebix and Killing Joke). Embracing the many
irrational and visceral shades of this style's darkest corners, the music
decidedly rejects traditional copy-and-paste guidelines of musical conformity
with a puncturing attitude. The harsher side of Cross Stitched Eyes derives
directly from the band's artistic influences and its deconstructed presentation.
CSEs track "We Follow" evokes reactions to seemingly
unchanging lifestyles with a vitriolic diatribe. Others like "Animated Corpse"
and "Earth's Defiant" display a lyrical depth seldom heard these days.
At times benign, at others aggressive, CSE explores the complicated relationship
between dark and light in a repulsive world filled with gloom.

CEDRON hails from a dying city in northern Sweden.
The four-piece are young, but still have had the chance to tour Sweden
with some of it’s more renowned hardcore bands as well as played the
country’s largest metal festival.
WATCHING THE SUN TURN PITCH BLACK, the bands debut EP,
revolves around the theme of con- sumption, decay and ignorance.
In six songs CEDRON takes the listener through childhood friendship,
ro- mantic uncertainty and political aggression, all whilst playing metal riffs
in the vein of Bring Me The Horizon with the intensity from Refused.
The band will embark on new tours to support their fresh EP,
the first one in the spring along with fellow swedes Yersinia. Make sure
you catch these guys live; as the songs promises, it is impossible to stand
still hearing tunes like ‘Rumours’ and ‘Still Growing’ in a crowded room.
CEDRON is a cry for those without voice, life in a dying genre,
and a legacy in the making.
