As someone who lives in the south of England, I always feel lucky that I am close to London as it always gets some stunning exclusives, and this show from the excellent Nightshift Promotions is one of them.
The Ever Living are one of the UK’s fastest growing bands, their blackened post-metal calls many bands to mind including Cult of Luna, Deftones and Neurosis. The Ever Living have made a strong start to their career, their ominous synths create a strong, foreboding atmosphere that is heavy and powerful. Get down early to watch this band!
Simply one of the best bands in the UK by miles and a band that is criminally under-exposed. Essex’s Telepathy are an outstanding band; they can create a powerful, emotive atmosphere without a single lyric. A hard working band who give 110% every night, a band that is the living embodiment of proof that you don’t need lyrics to create inspiring music. With a hotly anticipated new album out later this year; Telepathy are simply incredible, you’d be a fool to miss them.
North who are signed to Prosthetic Records are another excellent sludge band in the underground. Influenced by acts such as Intronaut and Primitive Man, the band who hail from Tuscon, may only be a three piece but make a noise louder than some bands with more members. The band will hopefully be serenading us with songs from their excellent latest album Light the Way among other choice cuts from their discography.
Ghent’s The Black Heart Rebellion have been making waves in the online community and with good reason. A mixture of doom metal, post-rock and sludge, The Black Heart Rebellion justify the positive press they have been receiving. Their music is simply inspiring and beautiful which has been carefully weaved by artisan craftsmen. The Black Heart Rebellion are on the rise and will definitely be capable of headlining The Underworld someday, this show will prove testament to that.
Hailing from Philadephia, Pennsylvania, Rosetta are a band that are hard to pin down to one genre. Their music incorporates elements of post-hardcore, shoegaze, drone, post-rock, avant-garde and ambient with influences including Neurosis, Isis and My Bloody Valentine. Rosetta are one of those unique bands whose style of music can flow so easily, one minute it is aggressive and chaotic, while the next it can be rather soothing. Rosetta are a dynamic, fantastic band and this is the only UK date on their tour, attendance is a priority!
