LIFER - http://www.myspace.com/lifermetal From what Ive heard, cant wait for these guys, blending Thrashy Goodness with Down like Stoner riffs make these guys a force to be reckoned with! "...heavy as fuck and edgy as Hell, spiked with an acute social commentary. Lifer have taken the choicest cuts of old school thrash and fused them to the low, grimy groove of Down…..with devastating effect." ALUNAH - http://www.myspace.com/alunatheband This band continue to impress the hell outta me every time I see them play, their Groove Ridden Psychadelic Doom makes me want to push that fader to the max! On the back of four years relentless touring all over the country including dates with such legends as Paradise Lost, Trouble & Orange Goblin to promote their “Fall to Earth” & "Song of the Sun" releases, Alunah are proud to unveil their debut album "Call of Avernus" through Catacomb Records on 6th December 2010. (Available physically and digitally from HMV, Play.com, Amazon, All That Is Heavy.com, itunes etc). .. Recorded and mixed by Greg Chandler (Serpentcult / Moss) and mastered by James Plotkin (Isis / Khanate / Earth) "Call of Avernus" is the sound of nine riff heavy doom grooving tracks, all infused with infectious song writing and the now Alunah trademark combination of stoner & psychedelic grooves, pagan inspired lyrics and female vocals! PAROLE - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Parole/143686682345227?sk=info Parole are a four-piece doom / sludge/crust band comprised of members from Coventry and Leamington Spa, United Kingdom. Formed in 2009, they cite poverty, pain, death, weakness, addiction, violence, hatred, abuse and suffering as their influences. A five track EP titled simply ‘PAROLE’ was released on October 11th 2009, and has so far recieved positive feedback from most listeners. These guys create an awesomely rancid mix of eyehategod's groove-injected riffery and fierce hardcore-infused sludge vocals, pouring forth filth and ferocity, As said in zero tolerance magazine. As ever the music's gonna warp your face and the beer will be flowing, an event not be missed!
They say only the strong survive and for Louisiana swamp grinders SOILENT GREEN, no truer words were ever spoken. Hardly strangers to adversity, Soilent’s two-decade-old history is fraught with lineup changes, van collisions, murder, suicide and a hurricane casualty. And yet, they soldier on, driven by passion, patience, perseverance and a will to dominate. The New Chapter… Newly signed to Metal Blade, this year’s aptly titled Inevitable Collapse In The Presence Of Conviction sees the Soilent Green machine — Buckley, Crochet, Falgoust and Patton — strengthened by its hardships and rejuvenated by a new label home. Recorded again with Erik Rutan at Mana Studios, Inevitable Collapse bleeds with debilitating emotion from the epically heavy salvo of “Mental Acupuncture” to the bare-knuckled exigency of “A Pale Horse and the Story of the End.” Blast-laden and confrontationally heavy with the manic time shifts, sludgy breakdowns, Southern charm and sheer instrumental prowess for which the band has become so synonymous, Inevitable Collapse In The Presence Of Conviction marks the band’s most varied and instrumentally accomplished record to date.

Next gig this coming Friday supporting SIGIRIYA @Scruffy Murphys birmingham.
“Sally are fast becoming the new Electric Wizard, in that not only are they slower and heavier than almost anyone around, but live even they don't know what's coming next, Tonight, they're a four-piece, thanks to the absence of guitarist Nigel Baker for reasons that even the band can't explain. But rather than letting this affect their performance, not only do Sally rise to the occasion but they're better than ever - which should worry the missing Baker a little. Playing as if their lives depend on it the Birmingham crew are doomier, tighter and sludgier than ever, throwing down the proverbially heavy gauntlet to the headliners.”
Be the first to ask Sally a question!
