THE FACEMELTER : LOST IN THE RIOTS

Joyous math rock meets seamless prog.

------------------------
Lost in the Riots

We'll never get tired of watching these guys rise up in the math rock scene. After a year and a half, the happy riffmongers are back at The Facemelter with new material!

Their quality albums 'Stranger In The Alps' and 'Move On, Make Trails' were released on Lonely Voyage Records, were widely acclaimed and resulted in an immensely successful European tour. 

They've now shared the stage with tricot JakobToundraDelta SleepBody HoundAlpha Male Tea PartyPoly-Math MNHM and many other favourites in the scene.

It's been great seeing just how accomplished these guys are becoming over the years; come and see them at their best!

"Hardcore infused, instrumental math rock." - Echoes And Dust

"A wake up call to the post-rock community that a true talent has arrived and are here to stay" - The Sludgelord

------------------------
MASCHINE

A progressive band without boundaries. The UK-based group seamlessly fuses their rock roots with modern and innovative textures shaping their sound into its own unique statement, reflecting the unflinching vision of composer, lead guitarist and vocalist, Luke Machin.

They've just released their new album ‘Naturalis’ via Inside Out Music (THREE TRAPPED TIGERS65daysofstatic...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead), which takes a look into the world of natural events from both the perspective of mankind and of nature, the band are as engrossed in songwriting and story-telling as they are with technical ability.

Covering a host of dynamics, from hard-hitting riffs to delicate melodic passages, this will hit the spot for fans of a huge range of music.

"Achieves seismic shape-shifts with Zen-like clarity." - Prog

"A dramatic and intense trip" - Louder Than War Magazine

------------------------
Los Padres

Having released a brilliant, quirky and sonically intense album last year, this duo delight in playing with experimentation, violent riffs and merciless loops.

Born from the need to break the boundaries of the traditional song-forms to see what lies beyond, these two are worth coming and discovering if you haven't had a chance to catch them around London already.

EXIT INTERNATIONAL

7:00 pm19:00

EXIT INTERNATIONAL

After giving the people's eardrums, brains, hearts and genitalia a well deserved  break, Cardiff's EXIT_INTERNATIONAL duel-bass and drum assault return for a   short run of UK shows, the first in almost 2 years.

Formed in 2008 (or was it 2009?) as a ploy to fill a support slot with The Melvins at Cardiff Barfly which never materialised, the joke grew legs and became a            devastating live act; Touring the UK, hitting Japan and Europe in between, before going into suspended animation in 2015 (Sounds better than 'hiatus' doesn't it?).

The band released the Welsh Music Prize nominiated debut 'Black Junk' (which     included the daytime radio-bothering minor hit 'Chainsaw Song') on Undergroove Records and the "100% in 60 minutes" Pledgemusic funded follow-up 'Our           Science Is Golden' to critical acclaim.

Hailed as "Ones to Watch" over consecutive years, EXIT_INTERNATIONAL's       defiance to stay a modest proposition in the face of inevitable success has seen  the band still retain a loyal cult following.

His fingers are faster than the human eye and the scales he plays are simply off the scale…soaring and spellbinding solos that scream to us all… in the name of Saint Bon Jovi, download his single “Talk To God” as it's simply epic, anthemic, dreamlike, rocking and so damn catchy...a juddering, flavoursome, flawless set...Ballsy and bloody brilliant!” Metaltalk.net

CALIGULA'S HORSE

7:00 pm19:00

CALIGULA'S HORSE

KILI LIVE present

CALIGULA'S HORSE

Named after the prized possession of Rome’s infamous despot, CALIGULA’S HORSE is a progressive alternative rock band from Brisbane, Australia.

Channeling the raw honesty of rock and the skill of progressive metal into a seamless voice at once energetic, grand and forthright, CALIGULA’S HORSE offers devotees of all strains of powerful and progressive music something unique.

 Formed by Sam Vallen and Jim Grey in early 2011, CALIGULA’S HORSE released their debut album “Moments from Ephemeral City ” in April of the same year. "Moments" is a colourful and dynamic foray into modern progressive music, at once vital, eclectic, and memorable. It was followed in 2013 by "The Tide, the Thief & River's End", a dark, powerful narrative concept album about isolation, exodus, and the human spirit overcoming insurmountable odds. It received international acclaim in the progressive music sphere, lauded by rock and metal fans alike. The release of "River's End" saw the group undertake an intense touring regime, including dates with the likes of OPETH, MASTODON, PROTEST THE HERO, THE OCEAN, FIREWIND, TWELVE FOOT NINJA, NE OBLIVISCARIS, and hundreds more. But for CALIGULA'S HORSE this is only the beginning. After joining the roster of THE AGENCY GROUP in North America, AMF Publishing in the UK, and signing with the prestigious German record label INSIDE OUT, the band's sights are firmly set on the rest of the world.

2015 will see CALIGULA'S HORSE release their third record "Bloom", their most vivid, vibrant, and emotional work to date, melding the group's penchant for dramatic colour with the high-energy musical drive the band has become known for across the world. “'Bloom' is very special to all of us - it's an album full of colour and life, vibrancy and energy, but one that breathes in and out with a natural ebb and flow,” says lead vocalist Jim Grey. “It's exactly what we hoped to achieve with Caligula's Horse. To us, this album has a life of its own.”It is the perfect mission statement for an act blurring the line between power and reflection; a musical assertion with depth enough for the most dedicated of prog fans, and with fire enough to bring audiences in venues across the world to fury and their voices to unison.

STONEWIRE
Jul

7:00 pm19:00

STONEWIRE

StoneWire are a female fronted heavy Blues-Rock 5 piece who’s influences spread across many genres and the blend of Rock, Blues, Country and Heavy Metal produce something that has been described as classic British Rock with a dirty Southern twist. Switching seamlessly from riff-laden rock to melodic anthems, underpinning it all with dynamic rhythms and exceptional vocals. This versatility has lead critics to compare StoneWire to contemporaries such as Black Stone Cherry, The Answer and more recently the Blues Pills.

For StoneWire the mission is simple: take rock back to its roots, bluesy yet heavy, melodic but dirty and most of all... fun!

StoneWire shine! Their performance appears effortless but as you listen you realise a lot of work has gone into this band, their song writing and their passion for the music they create……….we all know we have witnessed something very special.

MetalTalk.net 9/10

Great new band fronted by the hugely powerful presence of Sky Hunter

Nicky Horne - Team Rock Radio / The Classic Rock Magazine Show

It's great so see bands like StoneWire, they play just good music and they play it like they mean it, they went down a storm…

Powerplay 9/10

If you think bands like Black Stone Cherry are the bee’s knees than StoneWire more than deserve your attention!

Fireworks Magazine

Record of the Week - Blues Pills might have cornered the market for female fronted heavy blues but StoneWire are poised to take their share

RUSHONROCK 9/10

‘Favourite Bitch’ is confrontational, full of attitude and aggression. An early contender for one of the anthems of the year

Midlands Rocks 8/10

I was impressed by the bands live performance and was again on hearing the album… It’s a big rock record with a southern blues slant and features the powerful vocals of front woman Sky Hunter- and if you think she’s got a powerful voice on record, go and see the band live, you will not be disappointed

Desert Storm
https://www.facebook.com/desertstormuk/?fref=ts
Oxford based riff hounds Desert Storm have been making a name for themselves since they formed in 2007. From the beginning the band have worked hard...with 3 albums and a demo and relentless touring of the UK & Europe with the likes of Karma To Burn, Nashville Pussy, Peter Pan Speedrock, Honky (ft members of Down/Melvins/Butthole Surfers) as well as support slots to the likes of Orange Goblin, Red Fang, American Head Charge and festival appearances at The Bulldog Bash, The Desertfest, Brisfest & Roadkill (BEL).

Trevor's Head
https://www.facebook.com/TrevorsHead/?fref=ts
Trevor’s Head is a thick, greasy fondue of stoner rock, punk and grunge from a landfill town in the London commuter belt called Redhill. Their sound is that of unhealthy British men who yearn for the desert; all three members share vocal duties over blistering fuzz guitar bolstered by a robust rhythm section.

Oak
https://www.facebook.com/oakstoner/?fref=ts
Oak is a stoner rock band from London. We take retro blues rock riffs influenced by the likes of Cream, make it filthy and downtuned and then get an actual mad man to yell over the top of it.

RUDY WARMAN & THE HEAVY WEATHER

"Mystical, folky blues. Is it a thing? Yeah. Now, it is anyway. There’s no better way to describe Rudy Warman and The Heavy Weather. From Folkestone, they being with them a sound like no one else. There is a real class about songs like “Air” and “Supertramp” which when mixed with the feel that they might have just pitched up here on their way back from Glastonbury, that makes – rather like Exile on Main St era Stones’ – Heavy Weather anything but. Shimmering and summery, this is music for a hammock on a cloudless day. This chilled out, blissed out vibe is rather exemplified by their closing number “Gazelle” a gorgeous strum of a thing dedicated to the children of war, this is peace and love, and needs your understanding."

THE FACEMELTER : FLIES ARE SPIES FROM HELL

This month The Facemelter features some truly brilliant veterans of post-rock, drone and ambient sounds, with new and seasoned projects alike.

--------------------
Flies are Spies from Hell

Formed 13 years ago, this band has climbed up from humble beginnings to international fame.

The years have seen them move on from small local gigs, to sharing the stage with behemoths such as Russian CirclesAnd So I Watch You From Afar*shelsLatitudes and Vessels, to a couple of European tours, and appearances at ArcTanGent and Dunk!festival.

One year after the release of their second album 'Underdog Underfoot', they'll finally grace the stage at The Facemelter.

https://fliesarespiesfromhell.bandcamp.com/

"Compositional elegance" - Rock Sound

"So beautiful it made me cry." - Echoes And Dust

--------------------
A-Sun Amissa

A powerful, (mostly) instrumental collective, founded and led by Richard Knox (Shield PatternsGlissandoThe Rustle of the Stars) and Angela Chan (Tomorrow We SailLanterns On The Lake, The Rustle of the Stars) that has featured an array of members and collaborators since its formation in 2011, as well as two albums out on Gizeh Records.

Producing dense, drone-like atmospheres with evocative, melodic string and woodwind sections, intertwining guitars and field recordings, their live performance is a mixture of recorded output combined with improvisation to explore progressions in the music every time.

Their ever-flowing lineup of collaborators have included members ofAmenraNadja, Gnod, Oiseaux-Tempête and Hundred Year Old Man.

"Gorgeous, shimmering and shuddering" - The 405

Only Echoes Remain

Serving up incredibly cinematic post-rock, without becoming too cliched thanks to generous smatterings of math, ambient and classic prog influences, OER have already played with the likes of Her name is Calla,TOTORROVASAPoly-Math and Waking Aida, and will be releasing their debut LP early this year.

TELEPATHY

A one-off special event with post-metal favourites Telepathy, who are launching their new album, Canadian hypnotic doom duo ZAUM, and oneHoly Roar Records' newest signings, Wren.

------------------------
Telepathy (album launch)

Post-metal with a unique edge that engages fans of heavy riffs and haunting atmosphere alike.

From humble beginnings at early versions of The Facemelter many years ago, to perfromances with Oathbreaker, Rosetta, Year Of No Light, and festival performances at Incubate and DesertFest, The Colchester-based four-piece have carved out quite a following across Europe.

Tonight, expect to hear brand new material from their new LP, produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Cathedral, Ulver).

https://telepathyband.bandcamp.com/

"A very impressive take on the post-metal genre" - Echoes And Dust

------------------------
ZAUM

A monolithic doom, mantra-based psychedelic experience, featuring bass and drums merged with sitar and synth textures, layered with melodic vocals and Mongolian throat singing.

The huge impression they've left on post-metal, drone, post-rock and doom fans from gigs including Incubate Festival, have gained them attention from bands such as OM, Sleep and Ufomammut.

This is the duo's fourth European tour, celebrating the release of their latest album 'Eidolon'.

https://zaum.bandcamp.com/

"Layers of synths, sitars, flutes and who knows what else, build up to create a foundation of all-encompassing drone for the bands epic compositions." -The Sludgelord

------------------------
Wren

A powerhouse of raw, controlled fury. This London band flawlessly combine the aesthetics of post-metal pioneers, the bleakness and control of ambient doom and the unbridled rage of sludge metal.

Over the years, they've tested the waters with a couple of shows at The Facemelter, a few short UK tours, and more recently, have begun their climb through the ranks with the release of their latest EP 'Host' via Holy Roar Records, support slots with MinskKowloon Walled CityBosskRough Hands and Bad Guys, and a gig at the famed Incubate Festival in The Netherlands.

If ever a band encompassed seething angst that's moments away from bubbling over the surface, this is it.

ENGLISH HERETIC

English Heretic

Two years in the making, we are delighted to launch our 14th album, Wish You Were Heretic. England's fields are ploughed to reveal their sullied under soil. We plot the career of artist and huckster occultist Charles Pace, from his murals at Boleskine, via the murderous hills of Warwickshire to incredulous blasphemies on the dolce vita. An encroaching psammosere replaces the village green as we explore the undulating correspondences between M R James and Robert Graves. England's puritan dream dissolves to a leering priapic demon sphere. Pagan post punk, incantatory monologues and gnostic insinuations, Wish You Were Heretic is English Heretic's heaviest incarnation to date.
