KADATH(カダス)
 2009年に菅原浩巳(ギター・プログラミング・作曲)を中心に結成。バンド名は菅原の愛読する作家ラブ・クラフトの作品中に登場する架空の地名に由来する。
楽曲はインストゥルメンタルナンバーが主体で、骨格となるアレンジやタイトルはほとんどが菅原による。既存のプログレッシブロックを感じさせながらも、重さの少ない、キレのある、それでいてハードなサウンドを生み出す事をコンセプトとして持つ。現在のメンバーは菅原の他に、八木泰治(ベース・ヴォーカル)、伊藤"ハタス"孝(ドラムス・エレクトリックパーカッション)、石井孝治(キーボード・サックス・スティック・作詞)の4人。
2016年10月にセカンド・アルバム「煉獄楽団」をリリース。絶賛発売中
