A massive double headline bill with riff monsters Vodun, who are launching their debut album ‘Possession’, and Limb, who just released their latest album ‘Terminal’ last year. Ceremonies occur at The Lexington, between Kings Cross and Angel in north London.
£9 on the door
A band that’s started breaking out of the murky underground with their all-encompassing sounds, while still keeping everything about them that fans have been loving for years.
Described as a “raw and powerful slice of voodoo fuelled turbo-metal”, everything about Vodun is loaded with symbolism. Their debut album ‘Possession’, mixed by the Brit-nominated Tom Dalgety, is a crushing weight of heavy psychedelic soul, poised to heave its power upon the world through Riff Rock Records this coming March.
With an unforgettable live show to boot, the band have appeared at ArcTanGent, The Great Escape Festival and Camden Rocks Festival in 2015, and have recently supported Mondo Generator (Nick Oliveri).
“A bloody glorious cacophony: a kinetic hybrid of spasmodic Melvins riffs, outrageously powerful drums &
soulful yelping – they’re a revelation. 9/10” – Metal Hammer
“A voice as powerful as several stampeding bison.” – Classic Rock Magazine
Unrelenting stoner rock fury.
After being snapped up shortly after recording their demo, Limb released the ferocious EP ‘Gift of the Sun’ and a split with fellow Londoners Gurt, before releasing their self-titled debut album in 2014. After a tour with Black Moth, they took on drummer Tom Mowforth (Uncle Acid and the deadbeats) and enlisted legendary producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Evile, Dimmu Borgir) to bring a new level of detail and depth to their already gargantuan sound.
With the release of ‘Terminal’ in September 2015 amid overwhelming critical acclaim, not least from Terrorizer in the UK and Metal Injection in the States, Limb also entered a new stage in their immersive live show. Now that they’ve headlined Leeds’ No Fun Intended Fest and the infamous When Planets Collide weekender in Brixton, it’s about time to experience their pure sludge glory.
“The finest stoner, sludge doom this side of a Goatsnake surprise album.” – Vulture Hound
A trippy psych-noise five-piece who use two drummers, atmospheric melodies and cavernous vocals to create pure ethereal, spaced out filth. These guys will be releasing their album this year, so whether you caught them at The Facemelter last December or not, come and get your minds blown away by them tonight.
