The third band (which this page is dedicated to) was founded in August 2004. Hanno and Nils had already played together in various projects and in one band, whose guitarist and singer had to move away due to months-long duties. Searching for a replacement, they asked Noel, whose career as a musician had often crossed with theirs. Noel was at that time drummer of a locally-known band, yet he had for a long time had the ambition to be in the position of guitarist. After a few trial runs the status of project was overcome quickly and a fitting name for the new formation was searched: Worst Case Scenario were born. A first creative phase began culminating in a local music event on 01/22/2005 where the audience showed great reactions to the songs. Thus motivated, it was decided to bring the hitherto existing results on CD as a first demo. Recording was directed by Worst Case Scenario themselves and done in May 2005. The demand for "Unleashed" was much greater than expected. In 2006 it became time for the second CD: "End Time Stories". Again self-recorded the quality and complexity of the songs is much greater. As of today, the band looks back on some successful shows and it can be sure of the local underground's support. Again, Worst Case Scenario are in a process of creation and further shows are planned.
The fourth band was founded 2006 in Sweden by members of Aversion and Arcatera. They play a foundation of crust with some hardcore, metal and grind influences. The first setting consisted of Karin (vocals), Zara (vocals), Linus (guitar), Joel (bass) and Adde (drums). In 2007, Zara, being the only one not living in Stockholm, had to leave the band because of geographical inconvenience. To make up for the loss of half the vocal talent of the band, Linus and Joel started singing as well. This new setting turned out to be successful, since all three have different pitch in their voices, whereas Karin and Zara had a tendency to sound alike at times. To date, they have released a 3" CD on Yellow Dog Records in 2006. 2007 holds two releases in store - a split LP with Spanish band Nada X Liberar (containing the same 7 song as the 3" CD), and a split 7" with Swedish grind legends Retaliation, featuring 3 of the 6 songs recorded in August 2007, however which ones are not decided upon yet.

After numerous vocal changes,Daniel called up a former band mate from another project who was currently playing bass...his name was Glen Tickle.After 6 months of developing his vocal style,Glen found a permanant position as the bands vocalist.At the end of 2004 the band had to make a decision on wether to keep Adam on bass or to let him go,...he was a hell of a bass player but did not make any efforts to become any better or help with the bands self financed touring and merchandise.So the band decided to let him go.
After a year of touring without a bass player....the band was performing in Raliegh,N.C. after the show they where approched by Will Firth,about filling the bass player position....A few months went by with tryouts with people from all over NC and VA but with no luck,the band starting recording their new release without a bass player....after the drum tracks and guitar tracks where finished they recieved a call from Will who decided he wanted to give it a shot.Needless to say he become the final peice of wcs. www.myspace.com/wcsmusic or contact www.darkharvestrecords.com
