Stubb : Green Lung : Mountains - Black Heart.jpg

HAIL SANTA, WORSHIP YULE

We're already feeling festive at the Black Heart, possibly because of the amount of large, heavily bearded men on this bill. Join us on Thursday 14th December for a night of riffs that will rattle your baubles and shake the tinsel from your tree. Let's get fucking jolly.


STUBB

https://stubb.bandcamp.com/

The power trios of the late ’60s and early ’70s were the original blueprint for Stubb’s loud, hard-driving, fuzzed-up heavy rock. The current chapter has Jack Dickinson on guitar and vocals, Tom Hobson on bass and Tom Fyfe on drums. 

The band entered Skyhammer studio in January 2017 to record their latest album 'Burning Moon' with Chris Fielding of Conan on engineering and production duties. A 25 minute space rock opus (part 1 of a trilogy), 'Burning Moon' sees the band pushing their sound in a new direction while staying very much true to the sound they love.

Preparations for album number three are in motion, all we can say is keep your mind and your eyes open.



GREEN LUNG

https://greenlung.bandcamp.com/

In April, Green Lung emerged from the murky undergrowth of the British countryside and stumbled into London’s burgeoning metal scene. Their debut single ‘Green Man Rising’ – released only two months after they formed – was a slab of instantly memorable heavy psych, coupling soaring melodic vocals with deft and complex riffs. The single, recorded in their practice space, saw them hailed by Ripple Music and identified as ‘ones to watch’ by The Obelisk, and the ensuing buzz secured slots with several UK heavy titans including Desert Storm and Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, and a short tour with Morass of Molasses, where they quickly proved to be a dynamic and magnetic live band.

Fresh from recording their debut EP with Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse Studios (Vodun, Ghold, Riddles) here's a chance to see one of London's most promising heavy bands before everyone else.



MOUNTAINS

Mountains play rock of the heaviest calibre, with influences from the progressive, grunge, sludge and stoner strata of the heavy-rock landscape. 

Released on Rock Freaks Records - the label behind Germany's Freak Valley Festival - debut album 'Dust in the Glare' serves as a diverse and direct statement of intent...from the Mountains howls ruin...

CONJURER

mire tour white revised with shadow.jpg

Conjurer release their eagerly anticipated debut album 'Mire' on 23/02/18 and will be performing the record in full select UK dates. After two years of obliterating the UK's live scene, Conjurer have established themselves as one of the most forward-thinking and oppressively heavy homegrown bands we have to offer. This new album sees the 4-piece expand on the promise of their debut EP 'I' and create a vast landscape populated with brutish riffs and scathing vocals: pure aural filth. 

www.facebook.com/conjureruk / @conjureruk
www.holyroarrecords.com

Support on all shows comes from Norway's Attan, a monstrously heavy blend of Converge-esque dissonance and Neurosis-levels of girth. Having last been to the UK to level Damnation Festival (earning them an 8/10 from Metal Hammer and genuine fear from the crowd) it seems only fitting that Attan should return just after the winter to remind us what the cold is like.

*******************************************************************
Magna Carta Cartel was founded in Linköping in 2006.[1] Two of its founding members, Martin Persner and Simon Söderberg, served as the band's guitarists and vocalists, and both later played guitar in the band Ghost. Another member of the band, Tobias Forge, is the lead singer of Ghost under the stage name "Papa Emeritus", although this was not confirmed until 2017. Magna Carta Cartel's first record, the three-song EP Valiant Visions Dawn, was released in 2008. The EP was published by Sounds of Zilence as a free digital download.[1] The band's first full-length album, Goodmorning Restrained, was released in 2009, again by Sounds of Zilence.[2]

Magna Carta Cartel went on hiatus beginning in 2010, due to Persner, Söderberg, and Forge focusing their efforts on Ghost.[1] Although the members of Ghost had long kept their identities secret, Persner revealed in a 2017 online video that he had served as the band's rhythm guitarist from 2009 to July 2016. He thanked Ghost's fans for their support, and announced that MCC would be reforming.[3]

MCC began releasing new music in 2017, now signed Lövely Records, who reissued their first two albums. The band's new lineup includes Martin Persner, Arvid Persner, and Pär Glendor.[2][4] Since reforming, MCC have released the single "Sway" and the four-song EP The Demon King.[2]

The band was formed in 1987 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their debut was in 1989 in the middle of Argentina ́s economic crisis (hyperinflation), when the president Alfonsin was ending his period and Carlos Menem was taking over.

2 minutos started as a 4-member band: Walter “Mosca” Velázquez on voices, Indio on guitars, Alejandro “Papa” Ainadjian on bass and Marcelo Ares on drums.

Their first album was released in 1994, called Valentín Alsina as their home town. This album includes the hit song Ya no sos igual that was already recorded for an independent compilation of punk rock and hardcore bands called Invasión 88.

With “Valentin Alsina” they sold 50 thousand copies and achieved being denominated breakout band of the year by SI supplement of Clarín (newspaper).

2 minutos started to make some noise that same year when, together with Attaque 77, were the opening show for Motörhead and Ramones at Velez Sarfield Stadium, playing for 45,000 people.

In 1995, they recorded “Volvió la alegría, Vieja!” and started touring around America, becoming the first argentinian punk rock band to play in the legendary CBGB in USA.

In 1996 they opened the show for The Ramones at River Plate Stadium. The next year, they released “Postal 97”, which includes the song “gatillo fácil” that sold 15,000 copies only in one month. Two years later, they recorded their 4th album, “Dos minutos de advertencia” and later that year they released “Novedades”.

Their album Antorchas was edited by 2000 and their seventh record production was released in 2002 under the name “Vida Monótona”. In 2004 they presented Superocho which contains 16 new tracks composed with the same power and energy as always, recorded at El Pie Studios. In 2006 “Un mundo de sensaciones” was released, produced by Juanchi Baleirón from Los Pericos. This album counts with the participation of many musicians such as Sebastián Teysera from La vela puerca, Claudio O ́Connor, Juanchi Baleirón and Diego Blanco from Los Pericos.

By that time, the band had new members, Pablo Velmondo on guitars, Pedro Pedrozo on guitars and Monty Montes on drums.

In 2007 the band celebrated their 20th anniversary with the album “20 años no es nada”, along with a CD+DVD recorded live at Obras Stadium. Later that year, they returned to the same place for the Festival “30 years of Punk”, organized by Los Violadores, counting with the participation of Cadena Perpetua.

In 2010 they edited “Vamos a la granja/Directo al infierno” which has four cover songs: “Fantasma” by Daniel Melero, “Todavía una canción de amor” by Joaquín Sabina, “Ave de paso” by Sandro and “Straight to Hell” by The Clash.

In 2013 they edited “Valentín Alzheimer”, referencing the 20th anniversary of their hit album “Valentín Alsina”.

On September 4th 2016, 2 minutos played at the symbolic stadium “Luna Park” to celebrate their “Cachi 30 tour” (Almost 30 tour). The house was full and it counted with several guests such as Flavio Cianciarulo from Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Maikel from Kapanga, Hugo from Doble Fuerza, Chino Vera and Edu from Cadena Perpetua among other distinguished artists from Argentina.

THE FACEMELTER : POLY-MATH

A tornado of math rock, prog and technical metal from three jawdropping instrumental bands, with a brand new album being launched by the Brighton-based scene legends.

---------------
Poly-Math

The perfect balance of intricate musicianship, infectious hooks, heart-pounding melodies and nuanced buildups. We've watched his Brighton-based trio rise and rise from a startup project with a couple of singles into a pinnacle and example to all fledgling bands in the math rock scene.

Tonight they launch a new album, which, like every one of their releases, has been hugely anticipated.

https://wearepolymath.bandcamp.com/

---------------
Masiro

An immense display of grooves, riffs and technical ability, as this instrumental trio bring in elements of tech metal, prog and even funk to create vastly impressive masterpieces. 

Their performance at The Facemelter in February was second to none.

https://masiro.bandcamp.com/

---------------
Asian Death Crustacean

A relatively new band who have been taking on fans across the scene with every live performance. An extraordinary display of talent, these guys flit effortlessly between ambient post-rock and jarringly perfect metal riffs to tap into the palettes of a wide range of audiences.

They blew us away when supporting Alpha Male Tea Party and VALERIAN SWING in April.
