The following bands have been featured:
Sandmarx delivers riffs with balls, wild guitar solos and a rough female rock vocal, and stage show with a punch that only a heavy rock n’roll band can! The good feeling from the old times rock modernized. Sandmarx is a relatively new established band in Bergen, but has already toured in England and played on scenes like The Rainbow Pub in Birmingham, Boston Music Rooms, Inside, Garage, Hulen (The Cave), Kvarteret, The Untouchables Hard Rock Club, Checkpoint Charlie, and has also supported the great hard rock band Audrey Horne among other bands, and support the hard rock band L.A Guns in August 2012. Both young and old seem to dig a fresh breath of rock n ‘roll! The music is inspired by the great heavy rockers in the 80’s
They’ve shared the stage with historic acts as well as for contemporary, established artists close to their idiom like Jeff Martin (The Tea Party – [CA]), Danny Cavanagh (Anathema – [UK]), Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering – [NL]) and many more. In the beginning of 2010 their digital single “Perdition” was selected to participate in Microsoft’s “Playlist Seven” program while worth of mentioning is Duncan Patterson’s (Anathema, Antimatter, Ion – [UK]) effort on “Ibidem”, a musical statement of their debut LP “In Consequence”; a dark, rolling, mysterious album where rock music meets folk and industrial sounds covered brilliantly by an awarded artwork entitled “The Tree of Li(f)e” brought to our cognizable dimensions by Aris Liapis.

“Venrez live is a very special rock show. All the members are amazing players and showmen. We go on feel a lot, and every live show is slightly different than the other – much like a Rolling Stones or Aerosmith concert. It’s big, in your face, captivating, and sexy as fuck!” Lastly, Venrez plan on sticking around for quite some time. “We are already in pre-production on the next record. We plan to tour as much as possible, and continue to put out quality albums for our fans, for years to come.” As proven by ‘Sell the Lie,’ Venrez is off to one heck of a start.
