About:

Skeleton mask-wearing American solo project GosT specializes in bridging extreme metal with the more synthetic tones of darkwave, dance, and classic horror soundtracks. Like labelmate Perturbator, its black-metal-meets-Moroder sound is sleek, energetic, and very catchy, propulsive enough to compel the stodgiest of underground metal fans to dance rather than mosh.

FRONTIERS NEW BREED NIGHT

Doomsday Outlaw Dirty Thrills black heart graphic.jpg

DOOMSDAY OUTLAW is a ten-legged blues-rock juggernaut rolling out of the heart of the United Kingdom, coupling huge riffs and a killer groove to soaring blues vocals and tales of heartbreak and redemption. They bring together the best of hard rock and heavy metal with a dash of country. They pour their all into crafting juggernaut tunes that bring riff after riff, all topped off with the soaring classic vocals of Phil Poole.

With a new album, 'Hard Times', on worldwide release from Frontiers Music in May 2018, the band are ready to take on the world. The track 'Spirit That Made Me' showcases their approach, hooking up a towering blues riff onslaught to soulful vocals, and throwing in some Blaxploitation backbeat for good measure! It’s an ideal introduction to the musical variety and passion that you’ll find on 'Hard Times'.

Doomsday Outlaw vocalist Phil Poole said "We're so excited to be sharing our new album 'Hard Times' with you all. We've given everything we had to create something we're really proud of - and having the opportunity to share it is really what's it's all about. Whether you get the record or come and see us live, getting the feedback from the fans is amazing, and it's a feeling that never gets old. This is a big year for us and we can't wait to get started. Look out for some big announcements coming your way and we'll see you on the road! Much love."

John, the band's drummer, says of Phil: "He's our ace in the hole. Everything else was in place with the songwriting and performance but Phil has just taken the band to the next level.” He joined the well-oiled unit of Steve Broughton and Gavin Mills (guitars), John Ironfoot Willis (drums) and Indy (bass) and the band set out to bring their blend of heavy blues to the world at large.

They self-released their album 'Suffer More' in May 2016 and quickly gained rave reviews from around the world including:

  • 10/10 from Powerplay Magazine ("I doubt you will hear a better album this year"),
  • a blistering review from Fireworks Magazine ("Now THIS is a find!") and
  • Album of the Week from Worship Metal ("Doomsday Outlaw could release an album every 6 weeks and it’d be better than 99% of the bands out there!").

This brought them to the attention of Frontiers Records - home of Dirty Thrills, Bigfoot, Whitesnake and Warrant. Label head, Mario de Riso, wasted no time in signing the band to a worldwide album deal.

With the album, live shows and high-profile festival appearances locked in, 2018 is sure to be the Year of the Outlaw, so get on board, and we'll see you in the pit!

The story of a band Satariаl starts with a band "A.M.S.G." in 1989. When 3 fans of bands Bathory, Hellhammer and Venom decided to make music in the same direction.
The first composition:
Seth - vocals, guitar, lyrics, music;
Usurper - bass;
Leprosy - drums.
Concerts AMSG took place in absolutely underground atmosphere: abandoned churches, warehouses, basements etc The court USSR recognized the activity of a band how anti-Soviet. The name of the band and her music were prohibited. Seth was sent to the psychiatric clinic. And the rest members of the band - into the army.
The band recorded a demo in 1989. And after 1990 to 1992 the band was not active.
In 1992 Seth decided to resume musical activities.Seth decides to change name of the band on Satarial. And make the sound of black metal with medieval influence, because in childhood, in music school, he studied on a class of medieval guitar.
And in 1993, in the band comes on keyboards Angel Bust. She brings in the sound and philosophy band witchcraft, harmony of nature and balance. To 1995 a new program and composition of the band was formed. And by this time at the concert for the first time were used rituals with female Nude body and jousting tournaments.
In 1995 the first in Russia the festival devoted to the unholy music Black Mass, The christian terrorists was shoot in members of band Satarial.. After that the composition of the band was changes and in band comes a new drummer Demogorgon. In 1996 the band released the album "And the flame will take the temples of christ", that by the name immediately falls in the category of restricted for sale in Russia.
In 1998 was released album "the Queen of the Elves Land". The presentation of this album at the stadium Wings of the Soviets was cancelled by the government of Russia due to the use in advertising of satanic symbols, insulting the feelings of believers.

DESERTFEST PRE PARTY

DesertfestPreParty_Flyer_v3.jpg

It’s become tradition by this point that we kick the Desertfest weekend off a little early on the Thursday at The Black Heart, with previous years seeing bands such as 1000mods and Slabdragger serving as the soundtrack for the first beers downed and first heads banged. This year is no different as we proudly welcome ASG and Flash House to open up the heaviest weekend of the year at the official Desertfest Pre-Party.

 

Our headliners for the night are Wilmington, North Carolina natives ASG, serve the unique honour of playing the pre-party and Friday’s after-party at this year’s Desertfest. Flying the flag for stoner rock and metal since the early noughties, their ass-kicking self-titled debut introduced the impressive vocal range of Jason Shi as it cut through the band’s signature grooved riffs. Five albums (and one hell of a split with Black Tusk) down the line, ASG have been an avalanche of hooks for 17 years and never fail to bring the good times. If feeling good is good enough, ASG will more than deliver at the Desertfest Pre-party.


They’ll be joined by London’s own Flash House, who inject the raw power of their punk drenched noise into the night. Their debut full length, last year’s Brown Sauce, passes through at a breakneck speed only surpassed by their live performances. Between these and ASG, we’re not sure we’ll have a neck left by Friday morning. So if you’re arriving in London for a little early for this year’s Desertfest, or you just want to get in on a slice of what the weekend has to offer, book your tickets for the Desertfest Pre-Party on Thursday 3rd May at The Black Heart today.

FROST & FIRE PRE-PARTY RAGER

F&F-LONDON-PREV-WEB.jpg

With unbounded pride and enthusiasm, organizers Night Demon announce FROST AND FIRE LONDON, a two-day, nine-band extravaganza spanning three venues in historic Camden Town, London, England on May 11-12, 2018.

In just three years, Frost and Fire has grown into one of the preeminent traditional metal festivals in the world, a can’t-miss event drawing hundreds of headbangers from around the world to the sun-drenched shores of Ventura, California.  Never one to rest on his laurels, Leatherby is constantly seeking out new ways to bring old-school metal to the people, to foster strength and unity in the true metal underground, and to keep things fresh and exciting.  Now the time has come for the next logical step in the growth and evolution of Frost and Fire. 

“We are simply expanding the Frost and Fire concept to cross the Atlantic and pay tribute, fittingly enough, to the cradle of the NWOBHM movement,” Leatherby said. “It is an honor and a privilege to bring Frost and Fire to the UK to make history on English shores.”

Headlining the festivities at The Underworld on Saturday, May 12, will be California’s legendary kings of the dead, CIRITH UNGOL.  After a string of wildly successful reunion shows in the United States and continental Europe during the last two years, Cirith Ungol will be making their first-ever UK appearance at Frost and Fire London.  Also on the bill are revered NWOBHM pioneers ANGEL WITCH, fast-rising American upstarts NIGHT DEMON, and a pair of acclaimed young British bands well-versed in the ways of the olde, in the form of WYTCH HAZEL and AMULET.  After the music ends at The Underworld, the party continues one block north on Kentish Town Road at The Devonshire Arms (affectionately known as “The Dev”).  This official After-Party will feature DJ LIVE EVIL as well as Southampton’s own TOLEDO STEEL, playing their album release show to commemorate the release of their eagerly anticipated full-length debut, No Quarter, via Dissonance Productions. 

Festgoers are strongly advised to make plans to be in London a day early to attend the NWOBHM Pre-Party Rager on Friday, May 11.  This special event will be held at The Black Heart, conveniently located across the street from The Underworld in Camden Town.  The Pre-Party will include performances from a trio of legendary NWOBHM acts, namely JAGUAR, BASHFUL ALLEY, and the mighty MYTHRA.

Tickets are on sale now at www.frostandfirefest.com. [Include details re whether two-day passes are available or whether tickets for each event must be purchased separately.] These intimate venues have strict limits to capacity.  Tickets will go fast, and all Frost and Fire London events will sell out.  So buy your tickets now or risk being left out in the cold.

THE DUST CODA

Psychedelic trio DeWolff will be releasing their new album ‘Thrust’ on 4th May via Mascot Records and to celebrate this they will be playing a special show at The Black Heart, London on Tuesday 15th May, support comes from London rockers The Dust Coda.

 

Talking about coming over to play The Black Heart the band says; "After putting blood, sweat and tears and our hardest and best work ever in making our new album ‘THRUST’, we are freaking excited to come over to the UK and present it live in London! We played a couple of times in London before already, but are really looking forward to this one. And it's gonna be a special one, so join us on this great night together with The Dust Coda.”

 

Now staples in the Dutch Top 10 Album Charts, on the new album ‘THRUST’, they tackle contemporary social and political issues on ‘Deceit & Woo’ which was written on the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration and they explore the political climate closer to home on the opening track ‘Big Talk’. ‘California Burning’ attacks todays loud mouth society, they tackle gambling on ‘Tragedy, Not Today’, dark undertones on ‘Swain’ and  they approach the god of death on ‘Tombstone Child’. 

 

They formed in the Netherlands’ Deep South of Geleen, when they were barely teenagers in 2007 by brothers’ Pablo (singer/guitarist) and Luka van de Poel (Drums) and Hammond organist Robin Piso.  They have released 5 studio albums previously, all have catapulted them up the charts in their homeland. Whilst still in their teens they played the prestigious Paradiso in Amsterdam and took to the mainstage at PinkPop Festival in front of 10,000 fans, relentless touring followed, earmarking them as a formidable live act. Since then they’ve played to 30,000 at Lowlands Festival, 15,000 at Sziget, as well as Reeperbahn, Rockpalast, Rock Oz Arenas and supported The Black Keys, Blues Pills, Ten Years After, Deep Purple and count Seasick Steve as a fan.

 

They’ve played Castle’s throughout Europe, been invited to perform at a Russian millionaire’s birthday party in Berlin, they had bodyguards for a show on a Moscow rooftop and at a Biker festival just outside the city, they came face to face with unexpected pyrotechnics, nudity and watched fire spread across the stage during their set.

 

In 2017, the band celebrated their 10th Anniversary in fine style as they headlined their own DeWolffest to 3,500 fans with support from amongst others, Wolf People and Little Barrie.   Ten years of being a band and wanting to produce your greatest record to date has made ‘THRUST’, a full representation of the DeWolff live experience incorporated with the in the studio experimentation. It represents the sound of rock ‘n’ roll in 2018; equal doses of anger, frustration, emotion and at times disillusion with the state of the world today and all delivered in a hooky and gloriously epic fashion.

******************************************************************
"Many centuries ago, when the world was slightly younger and a little less ravaged by time's unrelenting grasp, there existed a sprawling empire of unrivalled power. Yet, whilst its might and influence stretched across great oceans and through vast mountain ranges, its immense dominion was born not out of prosperity and industry, but from rampant fear and blind obedience…”

So begins the arcane tale behind The Colony Slain, the second full-length album from doom metal diehards Age Of Taurus. Nearly five years on from the release of acclaimed debut Desperate Souls Of Tortured Times, singer/guitarist and conceptual mastermind Toby W. Wright is ready to unveil a new, ultra-dramatic chapter in the turbulent saga of the Taurean Empire. Showcasing a new line-up featuring new bassist Leo Smee (With The Dead/ex-Cathedral) alongside Wright, drummer Darius Claydon and most recent recruit, guitarist Daniel Knight, The Colony Slain is the sound of a great band reborn in heavy metal glory.

“This record has probably been constructed a little differently this time around,” Toby explains. “Leo, in particular, has brought a huge amount of expertise where arrangements are concerned, as well as some next-level musicianship. His style of playing alone has allowed us to expand what we were doing before and to experiment a lot more with ideas that we maybe hadn't considered. He's also helped us to start introducing synths into the material, which is something I can see evolving further down the line. Daniel actually joined during the recording process but, again, his style of playing has been a fresh injection into our sound.”

Formed in 2009, Age Of Taurus have already established themselves as a doggedly unique force within the modern world of doom. Ever the stubborn mavericks, they have once again conjured a collection of songs that defy lazy notions of doom metal as a one-dimensional creative cul-de-sac. Still rooted in the rumbling sonic bedrock of Trouble, Candlemass and Sabbath but increasingly steeped in the gritty swagger of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and in thrall to numerous left-field, progressive ideas, songs like fiery opener Taken To The Tower and the rampaging In Dream We Die eschew the languorous repetition of much modern doom in favour of subtly elaborate song structures that proudly salute the spirit of old school heavy metal. With nods to everything from radio-friendly hard rock to gritty crossover thrash, The Colony Slain is a flat-out celebration of the metal code.

“I guess we'll always fit the doom metal tag in some sense but we've always taken influence from a lot of different places and we were never really a slow doom metal band,” Toby notes. “Much of Trouble's material is faster, or at least mid-paced, and it's their sound that I feel best represents doom metal. This new album will almost certainly cement some of that sentiment, while also taking us away into different pastures. We've even created our own ‘Great Gig In The Sky’ moment, with some fantastic female guest vocals… Epicus Doomicus Metallicus, it ain't! Musically we've really cast off the shackles this time.”

Lyrically, too, The Colony Slain represents a bold forward step, as Toby’s tale of a malevolent empires, bloody uprisings and fearless heroes unfolds across 47 minutes of imperious bombast. Citing inspirations as diverse as prog gods Genesis, fantasy author Terry Pratchett and director John Carpenter’s The Thing, the frontman’s immersive and obsessive approach to new Age Of Taurus music has led to an album with great depth and substance to back up the songs’ muscular bravado.

As with their debut, The Colony Slain was pieced together in collaboration with esteemed studio guru Jaime ‘Gomez’ Arellano at his Orgone Mk. 2 Studio in Bedfordshire, with vocals recorded at Supervillain HQ in Wright’s hometown of Oslo, Norway, with Yusaf Parvez (Dødheimsgard) at the controls. The result is towering, riff-driven mini-epics like Beyond The Westward Path and To Seal A Mountain: refined but unstoppable bursts of authentic epic doom, delivered with phenomenal sonic heft and yet always sounding thrillingly raw, live and untamed.

“We chose Gomez, as we knew his new set-up was going to be killer and we shared the mindset that we could progress together,” Wright recalls. “Ultimately we wanted to make a heavy metal record that focused on weight of the songs, rather than just a very thick, bottom-heavy sound. Yusaf is a good friend and an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist and it was a pleasure to work with him, too. He takes wild leaps of faith when making music and he encouraged me to try everything that came into my head during the session.”

Rejuvenated and refocused, Age Of Taurus have returned from the wilderness bearing the most potent of gifts. Living, breathing, thunderous proof of doom’s timeless allure and the inspirational power of the riff, The Colony Slain brings past, present and future together in a riot of heartfelt heaviness and, as the story says, unrivalled power. A new age is dawning and this story never ends…

“Hopefully this album will strike a chord with those that are already familiar with Age of Taurus and, if we're lucky, it'll allow us to reach those that had maybe written us off as ‘just another doom metal band!’" Wright laughs. “This is a hard rock/heavy metal record and, in all honesty, some of the purists may struggle with parts of it but we’re very proud of it. With this record, I’d say that we've gained a greater understanding of what we want to achieve as a band.”

TOKE & YEAR OF THE COBRA

28164472_1789287661131279_8783324963795020575_o.jpg

Desertscene are proud to announce that we'll be bringing two fine examples of the latest generation of doom from opposite edges of the US; Toke and Year of the Cobra will be bringing the best of low and slow to Camden's The Black Heart on 28th May. 

Representing the East coast, Wilmington, North Carolina's Toke have been tearing up the US doom scene since 2014. Introduced via 2015's self-titled EP, a release which showcases the band's crunchy, fuzzed-out power, it was clear from the off that Toke are set to be major players of the downtuned sound. It's their 2017 debut full length Orange, however, which threatens to be a future classic in the heavy scene. From plodding opener Within the Sinister Void to the aggression of closing track Four Hours for Hours, Toke inject boatloads of energy into the often lethargic world of doom.

Further out West, in the Emerald City of Seattle, you'll find Year of the Cobra, who, as you'd expect from a near 3000 mile separation, bring an entirely different sound; hovering around the more psychedelic edges of doom, the duo of Year of the Cobra bring to mind Electric Wizard at their best. Groovy as all hell, their 2016 release ...In Shadows Below was one of the albums of the year and we cannot wait to see them perform live.

So for a night of diverse doom, book your tickets today for Toke and Year of the Cobra at The Black Heart on 28th May.

******************************************************************
Meet Thomas Wynn & The Believers, an American band with a striking new organic rock record about building a better life, a life you really believe in. Named #1 Rock Band and #1 Country/Folk Band in the city for seven consecutive years by the Orlando Weekly, Thomas Wynn & The Believers are breaking beyond the Southern rock scene with the release of their new album, Wade Waist Deep, their Mascot Label Group debut. 

The record is packed with the facts that make American music timeless—the deep Southern heat of the guitars, the complex, pulsing rhythms, and the male-female vocal harmonies that sound like only a brother and sister can. Breathtakingly in-sync with his vocalist sister, Olivia Wynn, Thomas Wynn sings about overcoming fear to become the person you were meant to be. Wynn, who fell in love with The Band’s first album Music from Big Pink in his early teens, while his peers were into Green Day, brings classic country rock and soul into the new century with tunes that evoke the best of CSNY, Levon Helm, and John Prine.

YAWNING MAN

web-blank.jpg

Desertscene in association with Sound of Liberation are proud to announce the desert rock innovators, Yawning Man, will be coming to The Black Heart, London on 29th July 2018.

Born among the sand dunes of La Quinta, California in 1986, Yawning Man struck up the perfect sound for their surroundings; raw, flowing and psyched-out. Often playing generator parties deep in the desert, their open air jams made a huge impact on many who went on to lead the stoner rock scene. Brant Bjork, for one, has proudly stated Yawning Man are the greatest band he's ever seen. 

As if it wasn't impressive enough that they inspired many of the founding fathers of the stoner rock scene, they managed to gain their reverence without a single release for almost twenty years. The band's first official releases - the Pot Head EP and Rock Formations - dropped in 2005, confirming to the wider scene what they'd already been told; Yawning Man jam hard. Adding to that catalogue with 2016's fantastic Historical Graffiti, they continue to be one of the most exciting bands in the underground thirty years in.

Sum Of R

Doors: 7pm
Tix: £14 (adv)

Watter is a musical collective made up of close friends and collaborators whose collective pedigree reads like a desert island list of must-haves in experimental rock musicians. Multi-instrumentalists Zak Riles (Grails) and Tyler Trotter are the ever-evolving group's only constants, with frequent and inspired contributions from Britt Walford (Slint), Tony Levin (King Crimson), Dominic Cipolla (Phantom Family Halo, Torres), Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s), Bundy K. Brown (Tortoise), Todd Cook (Shipping News, The For Carnation), and many, many more.

When Watter first appeared fully formed in 2014 as a trio featuring founding members of Grails and Slint, most assumed the mercurial group would vanish into the ether just like the foggy echoes of sound they crafted on their debut album, This World. Instead, they toured the US with their longtime friends in Om, as well as a European tour with Holy Sons and Lilacs & Champagne, and returned home to begin work on an ambitious new recording studio, from which their new album, History of the Future was born. As with their first album, the songs on History of the Future evolved from many long days and nights of improvisation, experimentation, and collaboration. In many ways, the guests – which include, among others, Britt Walford (Slint), Dominic Cipolla (Phantom Family Halo, Torres), Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s), Bundy K. Brown (Tortoise), and Todd Cook (Shipping News, The For Carnation) – and the gear were as vital to the creative process as the core duo of Riles and multi-instrumentalist Tyler Trotter. It is this exploratory nature that breathes life into Watter, and turns ephemeral into eternal.

LAST GREAT DREAMERS

Picture1.png

Last Great Dreamers with their distinctly British take on power-pop are probably the UK rock scene's best kept secret. They built a formidable live reputation in the mid 90’s with their shimmering glam style. Their debut album ‘Retrosexual’, a love letter to the early '70s glam scene, caught the attention of Kerrang! magazine, resulting in an awards nomination for 'best new band’ before tragedy and disillusionment forced the band to call it a day.

In 2014 they staged a fabulous comeback releasing an album of rarities, the critically acclaimed ‘Crash Landing In Teenage Heaven’ and have since in 2015 toured with Runaway’s singer Cherie Currie & in 2016 opened for bands such as the Darkness, Terrorvision, Hey Hello & Tigertailz and released 2 brand new singles ‘Dope School’, & 'Glitterball Apocalypse’ both achieving no.1 status on the HRH radio network charts.

In 2017 LGD released their 3rd studio album ‘Transmission From Oblivion’, which received rave reviews in Classic Rock & Vive Le Rock to name a few, plus they appeared as special guests to The Quireboys on a hugely successful 20 date UK tour and  in addition played the main stage HRHAOR Festival in UK & Ibiza plus Cambridge Rock Festival.

Influences & comparisons are diverse & include the likes of T-Rex, Mott, Hanoi Rocks, The Kinks, Green Day & Cheap trick, what’s for sure is that their live energetic show will be full of powerful & catchy pop songs, full of energy, emotion, grit & glamour!

27857883_10155050241011822_2716461489465244662_n.jpg

Superbly intricate math rock, mindboggling prog and spacious post-rock at this month's edition.

----------------
Kusanagi

A band who sound nothing short of grandiose every time we see them play. This Liverpool-based band seamlessly fuse electronics, post-rock and shimmering guitar, occasionally flirting with metal.

We've loved watching them get better and better over the years as they've performed alongside the likes of Tera MelosSvalbardukEmployed To ServeVASACleftVLMVAdam Betts - Music, and we're delighted that they're finally gracing the stage at The Facemelter.

"A huge slice of inspiring audio joy." - Circuit Sweet

"Living proof that there are exceptions to the rule" - Arctic Drones

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

It's a huge joy to see this trio launching an album after they've been teasing us for over a year with sublime live performances of their latest material. 

Combining punchy grooves, complex rhythms and catchy headnodding riffs, this instrumental band has found a sound that sits comfortably between prog, tech metal and math rock. 

https://masiro.bandcamp.com/

"Enough noise to fill a thousand wildlife parks" - Louder Than War Magazine

"Frantic and chillingly compelling" - Alt Dialogue

----------------
Iran Iran

A band that's developed a sound so unique, it barely could be described as fitting into any genre.

Back with us for the first time with their current lineup, the Bristol-based trio produce astonishingly complex noise, not always easy to follow, yet somehow still rife with chuggy rhythms that keep our heads nodding and feet tapping.

Neon Animal, one of London's hottest new acts is celebrating the worldwide release of their debut album "Bring Back Rock 'n' Roll From The Dead" with Cargo Records UK with this massively intoxicating Rock 'n' Roll line up in Camden Town's The Black Heart, London!


Featuring "songs that sound like they were made to melt jukeboxes" & "big gooey chorus & rampant guitar heroism" (Classic Rock Magazine), the previously self-released limited edition debut of London's hottest Glam Punk Rock band cursed the ears of the international music press and after the appraisal of numerous respectable publications, "Bring Back Rock 'n' Roll From The Dead" finished 2017 in style having it's first single featured in Classic Rock Magazine's "Best Of 2017" CD.

The band's hard work paid off and in the midst of the storm built around the band's debut, Neon Animal started 2018 in partnership with Cargo Records UK, who will distribute the album internationally in most major music outlets.


Joining the party that night and warming up the crowd, Neon Animal have the pleasure to present consolidated act The Black Bullets & introducing Dirty ol' Crow.

TIDAL CONCERTS present

VIC RUGGIERO (The Slackers)

plus support

Though you almost undoubtedly know him as the self-effacing frontman  of prolific New York scene heavyweights The Slackers, Vic Ruggiero has carved out an almost-equal name for himself as a solo artist. Releasing solo acoustic albums since 2001, Vic has pulled double duty performing his own material in between The Slacker’s already extensive touring schedule. This is, of course, in addition to Vic’s collaborations with Jesse Wagner of The Aggrolites (Reggae Workers of the World) and Tim Armstrong of Rancid (as Silencers), among many others. The material in Vic’s solo output contains a lot of the high-level songwriting that makes The Slackers so prolific, however sonically often strays into the territory of blues or alt-country. Even if that doesn’t sound like your thing, rest assured that Vic makes it work, as shown by material off his latest solo album, This, released back in 2014. Of course, we could have just as easily replaced this entire paragraph with “It’s Vic, from The Slackers” and you would be just as excited.
