Ashbringer was established in 2014 by Nick Stanger with the solo-recorded debut LP Vacant (Avantgarde Music). The project was soon expanded into a full band to tour the United States and Canada. Subsequent releases Yūgen (2016, Avantgarde Music, Vendetta) and Absolution (2019, Prosthetic) further expanded on their kaleidoscopic sound, combining elements of black metal, post-rock, folk, noise and ambient music.
With their lineup now fully solidified, Ashbringer continue to evolve into a sound uniquely their own, drawing from an expansive palette to craft their most experimental yet accessible release to date: We Came Here To Grieve.

Blackened death metal band based out of Chicago. With lyrical inspiration rooted in existential abjection and terror, Selenoplexia blends stream-of-consciousness songwriting with the brutality of the genre’s staples.
Founded in 2021 by guitarist Daniel and drummer Jonathan, and completed with the merciless vocals of Courtney and backbone of bassist Sawyer, Selenoplexia has created a haunting and intense live experience.
Selenoplexia released their first full-length album “Exalt and Despair” on October 13, 2023. The album was engineered and mixed by Spenser Morris at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, IL and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
