Filthy Crook is a five man death metal band from Oulu, Finland. The band was formed in 2017 at a local suburban pub after a night of heavy drinking when singer Ville Lehtoranta and bassist Joni Saarela ended up randomly discussing about possible project together. As a result, the existing inactive band of Lehtoranta and drummer Jarno Vayrynen underwent structural changes and was complemented by Saarela. Founding members and the musical direction for Filthy Crook were formed. In the years to come, the band became full-fledged with guitarists Joni Mettovaara and Jaakko Sepponen which both impacted the sound of Filthy Crook heavily. Since the end of 2018, the band has performed regularly in Finland. Although the band itself has not formally categorized itself, the band's mid-tempo style and dark lyrics have been described to have influence from groove and black metal.
The debuting EP, FROM FILTH TO FILTH, will be released digitally on January 24, 2020 in Spotify, Deezer, iTunes and other major streaming services. Recording, mixing and mastering of the EP started in 2019 with EVB Audio and Eemeli Bodde, known from band Mors Subita. The EP's cover art was done by Funeral For The Masses vocalist Teemu Halmetoja. The EP includes songs familiar from gigs and early demos, but with a whole new take on composition as well as production. The single MAKE IT COUNT, released on YouTube on January 10, 2020, has had 600 views in its first week.

Scranton, PA (September 3, 2019) Formed just three years ago, heavy metal/hard rockers Royal Hell have quickly made a name for themselves with their blazing backbeats and melodic choruses. Now, after honing their skills by sharing the stage with such artists as Dokken, Flaw, Hinder and more, the band is hard at work on their much-anticipated debut EP and has unveiled the video for Higher Court to celebrate.
Higher Court, which will be released as their first single this fall, has already gained traction among fans thanks to the band's tireless performance schedule. According to lead vocalist Matt V. Peppe, the song, much like the rest of their music, "bows at the altar of rock n' roll and heavy metal."
The video for Higher Court was filmed in Northeast Pennsylvania by Director/Producer James Callahan, CEO of Camp Rattler Video. According to him, it is a "dark tale about the thin, grey veil that separates good and evil...right and wrong."
"We shot the piece purposely, over three PA seasons on the same farm in the small village of Harding, Pennsylvania, where I lived as a boy," said Callahan. "We hope fans enjoy it. Or are creeped out...or both."
Hailing from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA, Royal Hell features Rob Helme (Drums), Eugene Pavlico (Guitar), and David Kusma, Jr. (Bass). The group has released several songs since forming in 2016 however their impending EP will be their official release.
"The band’s delivery is more aggressive than that of many of their contemporary peers; backed up with some good songwriting, Endogenic are consequently better than many of them too" (highly recommended, wonderboxmetal.com)
