Harbinger

A London-based band straddling tech, progressive and death metal.

Founded in July 2015 by ex-members of Acrania and No Rest, Harbinger have created a refreshing, muscular sound combining aspects of intense technicality, infused with a devastating European beatdown heaviness.

After going down a storm at UK Tech-Metal Fest, fans will be delighted to hear that they’ve got a new EP in the works, so might have a chance to hear some of their latest tonight.

Core Of iO
‘Part III: Ganymede’ EP launch

A fresh mix of prog, melodic and tech metal from this Brighton band. They’ve absolutely blown audiences away at over 200 gigs around the UK so far, including performances at UK Tech-Metal Fest, Mammothfest and The Facemelter earlier this year with SÜMER and Karybdis, and now are back to launch their EP ‘Part III: Ganymede’ for our 7th birthday, which honours us immensely.

“A large number of deft little fills and flourishes that showcase, in particular, the skills of the rhythm section” – The Monolith

Masiro

An awesome experimental math and tech metal trio from Oxford. Masiro formed in late 2011 when drummer Chris Pethers joined forces with guitarist Mike Bannard. After almost a year of writing, performing and recording their first EP, Chris Hutchinson-Mogg joined the ranks on bass guitar. Loads of gigs and demos later, 2016 saw the release of Masiro’s first record as a trio ‘Technocologist Unknown’.

“Pulverising prog drumming, wonky rhythms and riffs scraped directly from the hairy backside of the Goat Lord of Mendes.” – Louder Than War Magazine

“Brilliantly executed, if a little scary, and lies in its pugnacious world somewhere between Nought and The Human Abstract” – Nightshift Magazine
