SEASON OF DREAMS was founded by Jean-Michel Volz, the main composer in the band A TASTE OF FREEDOM. He wanted to create a Heavy/Power band with Power Metal influences.
Volz was looking for a singer with powerful vocals and first asked his friend Pasi Humppi (FRETERNIA) but due to a busy schedule, Humppi was not able to provide the vocals and introduced Volz to Johannes Nyberg (ZONATA, vocals & keyboards).
A good chemistry was there from the beginning, and the duo started to write songs for their debut album “My Shelter“. Nyberg’s brother John joined the project on some songs after listening to the first recordings. Four months later, the album was written, recorded, mixed and mastered. Jean-Michel Volz handled the music parts at the MindMirror Studios; the cover artwork was created by Stan W. Decker (RAGE, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, MASTERPLAN).

DOMINATION BLACK are:
Matias Palm: Vocals; Teppo Heiskanen: Guitars; Juuso Laitinen: Guitars; Lauri Eerola: Bass; Ville Nissinen: Drums; Juuso Elminen: Keyboards
DOMINATION BLACK have come a long way since their formation in 2003. After releasing their first two albums in 2005 and 2006 with their first line-up they already had started steering into a more melodic direction with their MCD "The Haunting" in 2008. In 2009, however, original vocalist Kari Killgast left the band. About half a year later, DOMINATION BLACK found a new frontman in person of Matias Palm (Merging Flare, Heavy Metal Perse) and started recording their 3rd album "Dimension: Death" which was then released in 2012. It truly was a step into a new melodic sound and received raving reviews all over the place. Supporting the album, the band toured in Finland, Sweden, Romania and Russia. The year 2014 saw DOMINATION BLACK releasing their new single "Master Of Deception" and visiting Estonia for the first time. Since then, there was a break for a couple of years until the band finally started demoing songs for their next full-length album. But this also meant that some changes needed to be made. Along came new drummer Ville Nissinen (formerly of ID: Exorcist) and guitarist Juuso Laitinen (Deathproof). The recordings were finally started in summer 2018 with the new energy. The group also played some gigs to introduce their new line-up to the audience. Now, DOMINATION BLACK are ready to release their new album “Judgement IV”. The band has also shot a music video for the song "Center Of The Universe" which will be released soon. The record was produced by DOMINATION BLACK and mainly recorded at Äänilaitos Studio, Kotka by J-P Pusa and Juuso Elminen. Vocals were recorded at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki by Eero Kaukomies, and bass tracks & acoustic guitars and some lead guitars were recorded by Matias Palm in Helsinki. The mixing and mastering was handled by Saku Moilanen.

JET JAGUAR was formed in 2014 and hails from Cancun, a city located in the Mayan region of Mexico. The band’s name was inspired by the Jaguar, a sacred animal for the Mayan civilization and for the areas inhabited by the Mayans. In early 2016, their “Zero Hour” EP was released. The title track and their first Spanish song “Rompiendo el Acero” have become fan favorites. 2017 was a busy year for JET JAGUAR. This year saw them tour Mexico twice (for a total of 35 dates). The group also embarked on their first European tour across Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Poland, Hungary and Romania. JET JAGUAR received worldwide recognition by being the first Hispanic-American band to ever win the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle in Germany in August 2017. In 2018 JET JAGUAR performed in Mexico City at the biggest metal festival in Latin America, “Corona Hell and Heaven”, alongside acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Deep Purple, the Scorpions, Judas Priest and Megadeth. They also performed at “Tecate Mexico Metal Fest“ and had their first gig at the Lunario del Auditorio Nacional (Mexico City). JET JAGUAR kicked off 2019 with performing at the biggest festival in Costa Rica “Grito Latino Fest”. Currently, JET JAGUAR is planning the release of their debut album “Endless Nights”, which will see the light on July 17th, 2020 on German Heavy Metal label Pride & Joy Music. Future plans include touring throughout Mexico, Europe and Latin America in support of the album.
