- MERCILESS LAW - Troops of Steel CD - total 80's Teutonic Speed Metal worship for fans of early Helloween, Chroming Rose, Scanner, Mania, Angel Dust
- VANQUISHER - An Age Undreamed of CD - Swedish Sword and Sorcery laden epic metal, based on Robert E Howard and following the best traditions of fellow bands such as Eternal Champion, Manilla Road, Manowar, Cirith Ungol, Slough Feg
- NAUFRAGANT - A Short Life CD - previously known as Skull & Bones, this is a band raising the Jolly Roger flag high and proud, keeping the pirate metal alive and well. Epic and symphonic answer to the stalwarts of the genre such as Running Wild and Blazon Stone, delivering a conceptual album based on Emilio Salgari's "The Black Corsair" book from 1898.
