Three bands from around the UK deliver a collective psychedelic thunderpunch of post-metal and doom at The Black Heart in London.
£12 on the door
A band that masterfully combines thought-provoking heavy prog soundscapes, righteous headnodding riffs and powerful vocals, giving one hell of a show all the way.
Since we last saw them, they’ve released their second album “Melted On The Inch” via Holy Roar Records and Black Bow Records, which has seen a huge amount of acclaim and a shift towards a denser, richer sound than before.
It’s impossible not to be moved by this lot.
“An extraordinary piece of work” – Prog
“A masterclass in heavy, progressive metal” 5/5 – Louder Than War Magazine
“An enthralling exercise in uber-heavy psych” – Metal Hammer
A trio whose sound we love to wade into. Bringing in an original blend of doom, tribal beats, blackened and heavy metal, Kurokuma’s appeal spans some of the widest ranges of metal fans we’ve seen, which is a testament to the breadth of their influences.
Having been well established in doom and sludge scenes around the world, with a recently completed Japanese tour being the latest in a long career of achievements, they will be a sledgehammer of a start to the evening.
“Takes you on a dark and groovy journey, through tribal beats, gnarly growls and serious tone.” – More Fuzz
“Groovy enough to get your head nodding but are out of the box enough to give you something to think about.” – The Sludgelord
Hundred Year Old Man
A ferocious and immersive listening experience, delivering an epic, monolithic voyage through masses of atmosphere.
Full of texture, depth, aggression and emotion, HYOM deliver a sound that is unique, crushing and mind-altering.
Having gradually crept into the collective consciousness of the European post-metal scene, this Leeds-based collective is on an ascent that has gained an almost unstoppable momentum.
“Subtle splashes of melody and sombre atmosphere, in a manner which proves to be as hypnotic as it is heavy.” – NO CLEAN SINGING
“Explores both softness and bleakness” – The Sludgelord
“Exists in a realm of duality.” – It Djents
