Our final event of 2018 is also the last monthly Facemelter event we’ll host. The Facemelter has been running almost every month since April 2010 and has helped us to discover some true gems in underground music scenes in London, the UK and more recently, from around the world.
As we’ve become busier with some amazing touring bands and special events, The Facemelter will be back as a rare event to showcase the best new projects around.
£10 on the door
To go out as we started, here are three fresh new bands who you could see develop into tomorrow’s festival headliners.
London-based project that incorporates post-metal and doom sounds with grunge and prog. Formed from the ashes of various psych metal acts, Meridian Sun are now ready to crush audiences with their unique blend of sprawling sounds that we all know and love.
Heavy experimentation from this Manchester-based project, sounding something like ISIS as a post-punk band. Based on the compositions of Sacha Zucchoni, with an ever-flowing lineup, their quirky time signatures and huge soaring sounds are immensely satisfying.
A haunting, introspective sound from this project from Reading. Making atmospheric music influenced by post-metal, black metal, doom and cinematic scores, their debut track Wilderness is a phenomenal triumph for a first record. We can’t wait to hear more from these people.
