Negative Core Project (live @ Fabrica 2010)






In December 2006, GABI TOMA (ex : Tectonic, Conex 83, Arand , Sistem Nervos) starts his first project with “Artillery” , a hardcore/thrash metal band, with Laurentiu Iftene (drums), Vali „Velo” Ionescu (solo guitar) and George (bass guitar). 


After approximately 6 months „Velo” is replaced with Razvan „Sfar” SFARAIALA (solo guitar) and George with Andrei CORNEA (bass guitar)..

In 2007, the band changes its name into „TARANTULA”. 

The summer of 2008 brings more changes, GABI TOMA becomes the new drummer, and Bogdan TIU starts as solo guitar. Filip BRUNET (vocals) joins the band in autumn, same year. The new sound is Thrash/Death Metal.

Starting with the second half of 2008, TARANTULA pushes on and begins a series of live performances in well-known clubs : Live Metal Club (Bucharest), Hard Rock Caffe (Bucharest), Suburbia (Bucharest), Club A (Bucharest), Fire (Bucharest), Abyss Rock Bar (Galati) etc.. 

In 2009 TARANTULA starts collaborating with Stay Metal Forever! : Sorin Ion Turcu - Business Manager & Alberta Bita, Marketing Manager. This same year brings a lot of concerts and festivals for the band : Academia de Rock, LMC Rock Maraton, Katharsis Metal ShowDown (with Methedras –Thrash/Death –Italy), Stay Metal Forever sharing the stage with Eastern Front UK, Seregon UK and De Profundis UK), Transylvanian Pizza Tour (with Action Bass Tom Band –DE), Dacorum Biker Fest Cernica, Motor Xcountry Fest and many others. . 
The 1st of November greets the band’s new name „Negative Core” and at the same time a replacement: the departure of Gabi TOMA, caused by personal issues, and a short collaboration with Bogdan „Tom” GROMAN (ex DoDiez) with whom the band had a performance in Suburbia Club next to ALTAR and a live show at a national television TVR2, at „Muzica si Muzichie” show (played in February 2010).

March 2010 brings Gabi DIMA from „Tiarra” (ex : Graven, Colt 44, Blind Spirits and featured along Abigail and ThunderStorm) behind the drums and a live performance at the new TWICE club (Bucharest) for a charity fundraiser.

In May 2010, after some musical style related misunderstandings, the band suffers a major change : Razvan, Andrei and Bogdan are replaced with Tudor „Bulan” SCANTEIE (actual member of Tiarra and Shesdead) at guitars, Augustin „Adi” COMORASU (actual member of Tiarra) at bass guitar, and Victor BADILA (actual member of Akral Necrosis) as the second guitar. 

Our sound has a new feeling to it, but maintains the same direction. We continue having the support and management of Stay Metal Forever! and a major opportunity shows up for the OST Mountain Fest in Busteni, Valea Cerbului –first edition– where the band shares the stage with numerous internationally known names (Omega Lithium, Negura Bunget, Hyperborea, Ava Inferi, Belphegor, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Concept Insomnia….) but also with important Romanian metal bands (Bucium, Bucovina, GOD, Grimegod, Abigail, Tiarra...). 

Mid September 2010 greets a new member : Bogdan “ Blida “ Blidarescu – synth…a new step in the evolution of the band with a sound that most probably will make the PA suffer a great deal of torture !! 

„Negative CORE Project” is the new face with which we shall offer chaos for the listening!

Hitting all new markets throughout the Southern and Southeastern US this time, the band will hit the old dusty trail again in early February with Virginia's sludgesters Cough providing direct support. Confirmed appearances on this newly announced rampage are as follows:
BUZZOV•EN Winter 2011 Tour:

Check out the tour poster for the upcoming dates, as well as a newly filmed Superskum video interview and live footage from BUZZOV•EN's recent December West Coast tour and more at this location.

As with BUZZOV•EN's previous 2010 mini-tours in October and earlier this month, the band’s classic lineup from their At A Loss LP lineup of Kirk Fisher on guitar and vocals, “Dixie” Dave Collins (Weedeater, Bongzilla, etc.) on bass and vocals, and Ramzi Ateyeh (Sourvein) on drums, now also includes Sleepy Floyd (Sourvein) on second guitar.

Following their inception in 1990, BUZZOV•EN quickly created an impact on the metal scene with their harsh, raging style of sludge, cementing them as both a purveying act of the genre. After disbanding in 1999, the group revamped things and reformed in 2010, bringing their chaotic and caustic live rage back to the stage. BUZZOV•EN will appear at The Netherlands' annual Roadburn Festival in April, as well as this year’s installment of the Maryland Death Fest in May, and will have much more news to announce throughout the new year.

KHORS: New Track Stream Available Via Noisecreep



AOL Noisecreep is currently streaming "Sacrament Of Buyan," the eighth  track from KHORS' latest full-length, Return To Abandoned, released last month via Paragon Records. On their fourth long player, the Ukrainian black metal horde yield the harsher, brooding sounds of earlier works whilst  mixing in the melancholy and atmosphere of 2008's unsung blackened gem, Mysticism.  "Sacrament Of Buyan," is based in Slavic mythology -- Buyan is reportedly the only place where you'll find "Koschei the Deathless" soul buried inside a needle inserted into an egg that lurks in a magical oak tree.

GUIDELINE: First official video of the new album "Traveler On Midway". Out on 21st Jan. 2011.

Grunge / Stoner Rock

“Metal Hammer Germany nominated Guideline to “Heroes of Tomorrow” in January edition 2011


In an age of exploding information and lacking sobriety they embark on a journey with uncompromising straightness that borders on obstinacy. With bone-dry riffs, a merciless groove and the emotional voice of the lead singer, GUIDELINE is on midway between earthy Stoner Rock and powerful melodic Grunge.

The lads quickly achieved international attention with this individual recipe. Especially “Castigation Ego” which appeared on the first EP in 2008 attracted the attention of two US labels (272 Records and Quickstar Productions) and moved both of them to put the song on their worldwide released compilations in 2009.

Without a doubt, Guidelines studio work is excellent. Their live performances – ass-kickin’. This indisputable fact was proved by the fourth place at Middle-Europe’s biggest band contest, the “ABC feat. International Live Award”, with more than 1.000 participants.

Highly motivated, they intensified their efforts and created the first long player “Traveler On Midway” in cooperation with the Nuremberg producer’s team all around Christoph Binder and Christoph Beyerlein. (Release Date: 21st January 2011) The Stoner Rock influenced casualness of the album is strongly inspired by the wild and explicit Rock and Grunge sound of the last decades (particularly the nineties).

After completing the record, medial interest rises significantly. The Rock- and Metal-Webzine metal.de was like “…honest, hand-made, 100% authentic rock music, that grabs the balls.” and rated a juicy 8 out of 10. Metal Hammer Germany is also convinced of their talent and nominated Guideline to “Heroes of Tomorrow” in January edition 2011 including interview and album review.
