Once Upon - modern/alternative metal - Ryga

ONCE UPON is a modern/alternative metal band founded in the autumn of 2012, in Riga. Since then it has went through multiple reorganizing processes, which has made the band’s sound just as it is today - every member shares a part of their heart and soul in the process of creation. ONCE UPON's music is a mix of fast and agressive rythms alternating with mellow and sometimes soul-burning melodies with a hint of almost magic atmosphere and, psycho vocals all over it. ONCE UPON has shared the stage with numerous well-known foreign and local bands. On 2014 they got the opportunity to represent Latvia at the biggest heavy metal festival ‘Bloodstock 2014’. Their latest song ‘A Letter to My Agony’ was nominated for the 15th Independent Music Awards as the best metal/hardcore song 2016.



Midesign - Metal - Ryga

The idea of the band was born long before it became real. There was a lot of material just collecting dust. One day John decided to visit Dainis because they hadn't seen each other for a while. Dainis was determined to share his work with someone who would appreciate it. And John really appreciated it. John asked if Dainis wanted to create a project together. At that moment, the idea of the band seemed faint. Bands usually create material together. Who would want to play already written songs? Well, this was an exception. A few months after the meeting, John assembled a group of guys, who already changed before the first rehearsal. Slowly team- building a strong group of people we became Mindesign - a group with a wide vision of the genre, a liking for offensive subjects and mixing incompatible genres, breaking rhythms and complicating their lifes in general. It is for these reasons we are called- Mindesign, because our minds know no borders.
