£10 on the door
Telepathy (album launch)
Post-metal with a unique edge that engages fans of heavy riffs and haunting atmosphere alike.
From humble beginnings at early versions of The Facemelter many years ago, to perfromances with Oathbreaker, Rosetta, Year Of No Light, and festival performances at Incubate and DesertFest, The Colchester-based four-piece have carved out quite a following across Europe.
Tonight, expect to hear brand new material from their new LP, produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Cathedral, Ulver).
“A very impressive take on the post-metal genre” – Echoes And Dust
A monolithic doom, mantra-based psychedelic experience, featuring bass and drums merged with sitar and synth textures, layered with melodic vocals and Mongolian throat singing.
The huge impression they’ve left on post-metal, drone, post-rock and doom fans from gigs including Incubate Festival, have gained them attention from bands such as OM, Sleep and Ufomammut.
This is the duo’s fourth European tour, celebrating the release of their latest album ‘Eidolon’.
“Layers of synths, sitars, flutes and who knows what else, build up to create a foundation of all-encompassing drone for the bands epic compositions.” – The Sludgelord
A powerhouse of raw, controlled fury. This London band flawlessly combine the aesthetics of post-metal pioneers, the bleakness and control of ambient doom and the unbridled rage of sludge metal.
Over the years, they’ve tested the waters with a couple of shows at The Facemelter, a few short UK tours, and more recently, have begun their climb through the ranks with the release of their latest EP ‘Host’ via Holy Roar Records, support slots with Minsk, Kowloon Walled City, Bossk, Rough Hands and Bad Guys, and a gig at the famed Incubate Festival in The Netherlands.
If ever a band encompassed seething angst that’s moments away from bubbling over the surface, this is it.
“Completely steals your soul” – Heavy Planet
“Righteous in its violence, thoughtful in its execution thereof, and devastatingly heavy.” – The Obelisk
