MARE

Make a Scene Promotions & Holy Roar Records present:

Mare
https://youtu.be/4221CYMzG1w

a self proclaimed "modern soul music" act, consisting of 2 people with an unwavering artistic vision and aim to inspire you.

Founding members, drummer Caleb Collins, and singer/guitarist Tyler Semrick-Palmateer were profoundly influenced by the bleak landscapes of their respective rural Canadian towns. Mare's attempt to rationalize the overwhelming malaise of suburban life sometimes borders on desperation.

With music as their only outlet, they banded together in early 2003 to explore and refine a dark and highly emotional musical identity. This sound was routed in a variety of musical genres, including metal, jazz, and classical. The band recorded a critically acclaimed self titled EP released on respected underground label Hydra Head Industries, in 2004. They extensively toured Canada and the U.S. alone side prominent extreme bands such as Converge, Isis, Pelican, Daughters, Cursed, These Arms are Snakes, Old Man Gloom, and Terror, to name a few. Mare quickly developed a loyal following with their intense and moving live show. Often heralded for both an ability to express their art with a rare technical proficiency, and to achieve an uncanny emotional connection with their audience.

FRONTIERER

Based across Scotland, Portugal and America, Frontierer has progressed from an online project between Pedram Valiani and Chad Kapper to a live band promoting a "for free" music model and a convenience-based performance schedule.

With the 1st birthday of their debut album 'Orange Mathematics' recently passed, Frontierer seeks to punish as many corners of the globe as is feasible by adopting a selective, limited performance rota. This is a rare opportunity to see live music with a "zero bullshit" approach.

The band performed their first live debut at UK Tech Metal Fest in July of 2016, paving the way for further live opportunities in 2017 and 2018. Frontierer's second album is nearing completion.

NICK OLIVERI

NICK OLIVERI

Desertscene are ecstatic to announce that they are bringing Nick Oliveri's Death Acoustic to London.

Support: TBC

Oliveri should be no stranger to fans of heavy, with his roll call of bands reading like a dream festival lineup. First cementing his place in stoner rock legend as a bassist in Kyuss, he then took things to the next level with Queens of the Stone Age. His own project, Mondo Generator, continued down the raucous path, and if that’s not enough for you, his work with Dwarves, Masters of Reality and countless others should prove why he’s one of the most recognisable bassists in all of heavy music.

Death Acoustic are a different kind of heavy. Stripped down but not slowed down, packing all the punch and energy you’d usually expect from a stack of amps. Many musicians offer up a softer side in their acoustic shows, Nick Oliveri goes in the other direction; upping to new degrees of intensity to compensate for the unplugged environment. Bound to be one of our most unique shows of the year, be sure not to miss Nick Oliveri Death Acoustic when they hit London.

Book your tickets today.

JEREMY IRONS & THE RATGANG MALIBUS

LAST UK SHOW FOR TEIRESIAS PROMOTIONS
It has been a fun journey for us all so we will make sure to give you a “deeeecent” goodbye.
Don’t miss your chance to party with us one last time.
Jeremy Irons and the Ratgang Malibus will ride down to UK to pierce you with their Spirit Knives
Enos will come “back to earth” to launch a gigantic collision of sounds.

JEREMY IRONS AND THE RATGANG MALIBUS (SE)
https://www.facebook.com/JeremyIronsandtheRatgangMalibus/?fref=ts
Jeremy Irons and the Ratgang Malibus are a psychedelic four-piece band from Eskilstuna, Sweden. 

Originally formed around 2004, with a core line-up of Karl Apelmo (vocals, guitars) and Mikael Pettersson (guitars). They scored a demo, had some live gigs and quite a few line-up alterations. However, around 2005 they more or less disbanded, the fluid line-up situation and the various member’s attachments to other band projects taking its toll. However, JIRM resurfaced in 2007 with most of the previous members. EP was made and released in 2009 (Elefanta), and JIRM got in touch with Swedish label Transubstans Records, subsequently hitting the studio to record an LP. The end result was issued as Bloom in May 2011, to a generally positive reception. This album was followed by their sophomore Spirit Knife released in April 2014. Their music can be described as a throwback to 70s psychedelic krautrock with stoner influences. 

Spirit Knife is, with their own worlds, the "deepest, darkest and most epic journey". Released 10 years after the original band formation, JIRM latest work, as enthusiastically reviewed by many, is a cosmic journey accompanied by the distinctive fashion of Karl's voice and howling guitars, flowing into a kaleidoscope of spaced out vibes.

"Envision Jeff Buckley jamming with Can, and you’ll have a fair gist of the fantastic voyage that awaits the armies of the Spirit Knife; an album that finds JIRM rekindling their time-traveling communion with vintage psychedelia and Krautrock, while expanding on the sonic palette revealed by the ensemble’s past full-lengths, Elefanta and Bloom." Hellbound.ca

"Their songs are a wonderful journey through a world of sound that has been indeed created by bands such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, but JIRM have created their own kingdom in this world" Soul Seller Magazine

"They sound so much larger than what you'd associate with a four piece group, enveloping and even overwhelming the listener just a bit" Ride With The Devil Music Blog

Bloom (2011)
Elefanta (2009)


ENOS (UK)
https://www.facebook.com/ENOSTHECHIMP/
Over the past 6 years, Enos have gained a reputation as a band to been seen and heard loud and live. A reputation that was cemented by the 2010 release of their first recording, Chapter One and backed up in 2012 with the release of All Too Human.

Enos’ music goes hand in hand with the comic they share their name with. Following the story of the eponymous chimpanzee the music switches from psychedelia, hard and solid riffing and relaxed passages to narrate the tale of Enos’ adventures.

Since the release of the band’s critically acclaimed second album All Too Human Enos have gone on to tour Europe and the UK, play several festivals, released a Live EP (The East Slope – Live EP released 2013), which previews 4 tracks from the hour long live DVD (Live at The East Slope released 2014) of the same show
“There is definitely a Pink Floyd atmosphere with Sludge/Stoner Metal overtones dealing with a time travelling space chimp.”

http://thesludgelord.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/enos-all-too-human-review.html
“ Enos do throw in the odd curveball from time to time, for example “Obscured” is an acoustic blues complete with slide flourishes by way of Dave Gilmour and “Up ‘n’ Down” is another acoustic workout that comes across like Jimmy Page trying his hand at some bluegrass.”

£7 advance

So it's one day into 2017 and you've done pretty much nothing for the past fortnight but eat and drink. You've made a new year's resolution to 'get healthy' and 'do more cultural' activities' but you'd rather than just continue drinking yourself into a coma.

Well, it turns out you can do both, thanks to your good pals at Vested Interest. Come down and enjoy our carb-neutral concert where you can drink beers selected from the Black Heart's impressive beverage selection, then see those pounds slide off as you mosh to Dangers furious, muscular brand of hardcore. 

Band descriptions below, more bands to be added to the bill I would imagine.

DANGERS

Listen: https://wearedangers.bandcamp.com/ 
Website: http://www.wearedangers.com/

DANGERS is a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. They have been playing basements, garages, living rooms, squats, warehouses, banquet halls, high school auditoriums, Adriatic beach resorts, abandoned Soviet furniture factories, and public park gazebos since the winter of 2005. In their decade of existence, they have booked their own tours across the United States, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia. After self-releasing two critically-acclaimed LPs and two EPs on their own Vitriol Records, they are now pushing their third LP, The Bend in the Break, out into the world via Topshelf Records. It is an attempt to locate the band within the rapidly changing landscapes of both loud music and our rotten culture-at-large, and finds the band incorporating its roots into a sound and performance more their own than ever.

ROPE:

Listen: https://thebandrope.bandcamp.com/

Rope are three friends from South Wales who play their own minimal, powerful and precise brand of guitar music. Formed in 2015 from the ashes of Goodtime Boys and Hunger Artist, their live sets bring to mind the visceral power of Shellac, the songmanship of Nick Cave and the kind of swirling atmospherics you might expect from Neurosis or Pink Floyd, all held together by a powerful vocal delivery and lyrics.

It's a club dedicated to the obscure, the unsung & the unknown. 
A habit of staging it on varying days of the week with very little advertising reflects this.

ELEPHANT TREE

Another year of The Facemelter comes to an end, and what a seriously awesome bunch of bands we've had! This is the last one of 2016 and we're racking up stoner, blues, psych, sludge and doom bands that we've wanted to work with for ages.

------------------------
Elephant Tree

Great stoner blues layered with ethereal prog. After cutting their teeth on the London metal scene, these guys have established a place within the current growing stoner metal scene around the UK. When they moved to London and started taking in the huge amount of gigs here, founding members Sam Hart and Jack Townley were inspired to start making their own music, with heavy riff veterans Peter Holland (Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight) and Riley MacIntyre completing the lineup soon after.

Already having sold out of all physical copies of their self-titled album, released only a few months ago, fans of blues, psych, stoner rock and prog should come and space out to their easygoing riffs with us.

https://elephanttreeband.bandcamp.com/

"Spaced out, bizarre and unafraid to expand what doom can be." - Metal Injection

------------------------
Kurokuma

Heavy psych and chugging metal riffs from these fiends from Sheffield. In the two years since they formed, they've recorded a demo and a brilliant EP, played with ConanSkeletonwitchGOATWHOREHark and KEN mode, been interviewed and streamed on Terrorizer and performed at various festivals around the UK.

Incorporating unexpected sounds from all around the world of musc, Kurokuma have created a solidly original metal sound that appeals to fans of doom, drone, psychedelia and even has African and Latin twists in it.

https://kurokumauk.bandcamp.com/

"Uneasy psychedelic sludge with pulsing tribal rhythms, hoarse vocals, intricately layered and wildly performed solos and massive Fleshpress-esque riffs" - Terrorizer

"There are so many layers to this band it's unreal" - The Sludgelord

------------------------
Allfather

Metal and punk riffs for the sluggishly minded. Over the last two years, these Kent-dwellers have honed their lineup into a hard-hitting five piece, channeling heavyweight songcraft through a classic dual guitar assault.

Depsite coming from a variety of backgrounds, the band’s sound coalesces around riff-driven metal, with the likes of High On Fire, Nails, Black Breath, Iron Monkey and Electric Wizard forming their musical touchstones.

They've already shared the stage with Cold World, Venom Prison, The Hell, Sea Bastard, Conjurer, Title Fight and The Moth. We're looking forward to hearing their album 'Bless the Earth With Fire' played live.

https://allfather1.bandcamp.com/

"Effortlessly effective songwriting style and a clear and unshakable sense of conviction that practically bleeds from your speakers" - NO CLEAN SINGING
