It was cancelled but it has returned: Cowbell Promotions and MetalRecusants are producing a gig at the St James Wine Vaults in Bath on the 21st September. The lineup features the excellent Baron Greenback, Greenhorn and Watch the Skies.
Watch the Skies
Opening the gig are Watch the Skies, a new Doom Metal band who state on their Facebook page that they have, ‘8 string guitars, 5 string bass, triggered drums and a shouty guy at the front. It’s not rocket science, its heavy’. With a few interesting demos to listen to on their Facebook page, don’t miss Watch the Skies.
Described by Terrorizer magazine as a band that “May well be the future of British Doom.” Bournemouth’s Greenhorn are part of the ‘New Wave Of Dorset Doom’ scene that is taking hold of the Dorset region. With inspiration ranging from Electric Wizard to Lamb of God, and Kyuss to Mastodon, the Doom/Sludge hybrid beast that is Greenhorn are an essential band to see, especially with excellent songs in their disposal such as ‘Snakes,’ which is available to listen to on their Facebook page. ‘It’s Doom Jim but not as we know,’ as stated on their Reverbnation page is certainly a fitting description.
It’s time to bow down before the Baron as Baron Greenback return to Bath. The mighty Baron Greenback will be returning to the site as the local heroes to Bath in their rightful place as headliners. Their Facebook reads ‘Formed at some point over the last few years, Baron Greenback is an outfit which doesn’t like to marginalize itself with labels. Sometimes heavy, sometimes bluesy, sometimes sludgy, sometimes funky, the Barons play music which is just second nature to them’. Listen to ‘Vines’ and ‘Imploding Sun’ on their Facebook page to get the feel of Baron Greenback’s sound, and it is a mighty one.
