Castles announce UK tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 6th January 2014 by Nico Davidson

Belgian hard rockers Castles have announced a UK tour in support of their recent release Fiction or Truth? The Belgian trio will hit British shores for six shows in March. Of the upcoming dates, vocalist and guitarist, Edward Godby commented:

We love coming to play gigs in England because there’s nothing Jerry and I enjoy more than watching Bertrand eat his own weight in late-night onion rings at some long -lost service station, and we all benefit greatly from a nice Tescos shop at 3 in the morning.

Also, the gigs might be good. We’re playing with some great bands – Satanic Dystopia, Denim and Leather, Canaya, USA Nails and False Flags to name but a few. Hopefully they’ll all do their hair nicely for the occasion.

Castles’ UK shows in March are as follow:

Saturday 01/03 – Cardiff – The Moon Club – W/ A Thousand Arrows (last ever show!)
Sunday 02/03 – London, Camden – The Black Heart – W/ USA Nails and Canaya
Monday 03/03 – Derby – The Hairy Dog – W/ TBC
Tuesday 04/03 – Manchester – Kraak – W/ Satanic Dystopia and Denim & Leather
Wednesday 05/03 – Leeds – The Packhorse W/ Canaya, False Flags and Shields
Friday 07/03 – Portsmouth – The Edge of the Wedge – W/ Attack! Vipers!

Fiction or Truth? was released in November 2013 via Palm Reader Records. A video for the track Palm Reader taken from the album can be viewed below.  Fiction or Truth? was recorded in summer 2013; Castles headed to Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts to record under the direction and guiding hand of Kurt Ballou (Converge, Torche, Cave In), whilst mastering duties were handled by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon. Initially the album was released on a “pay what you want” basis, with hundreds of people taking advantage of the offer. The album is now available for €5 from the Castles bandcamp, or in physical format from the Palm Reader Records website.

Satan – Life Sentence

Posted in CD, Metal with tags , , , , , , , on 24th April 2013 by Nico Davidson

Satan
Life Sentence
Released 29th April 2013 (Europe)
NWOBHM
Released via Listenable Records

Hailing from the city of Newcastle, in the north of England, come NWOBHM outfit Satan. Whilst staying near enough obscure throughout their career, the band are noted as being influential for playing a form of proto-thrash metal that was advanced by the standards of the early 80s. Following several European festival performances in 2011 and 2012, Satan are officially back, with their new album Life Sentence to be released in less than a week.

Straying from the usual sound of the NWOBHM, Satan shred through each track on the album with an unrelenting and unbridled fury that can only be found in the metal of the north, and a few subtler pieces of musicianship thrown in for good measure. The solos are memorable, much like the somewhat melodic guitar passages. The elements of thrash are noticeable, helping create an NWOBHM sound that’s morphed into something more sinister and packed with more bite. The vocal work is astounding, adding a different edge to the album. The guitars take on a quite primal form during the track, Testimony, before the catchier anthem known as Tears of Blood kicks in. The title track, Life Sentence, is a stand-out track due its poignant lyrics and staunch riffs. The album has what is made out to be a calmer, more dreary finale, compared to how it began but Another Universe soon changes gear and gets a bit more hard hitting.

With gritty but soaring vocals and thrashtastic (Is that even a word? No? Well, it is now) riffs, Life Sentence embodies all that’s good about the UK’s NWOBHM and thrash scenes, whilst displaying the brilliant musicianship of Satan.

4/5

Filth Wizard announced for Metieval Winterfest 2013

Posted in News with tags , , , on 19th March 2013 by Nico Davidson

Infamous sleaze metallers Filth Wizard are the first band to be confirmed for this year’s Metieval Winterfest. The band, who are known for their songs such as Accidental Anal and Potty Mouth, returned to the live stage on 22nd December, last year and Metieval Winterfest will be one of their biggest shows since returning.

Metieval Winterfest will take place on 7th December at The Piper Club in Hull. Further announcements are still to follow, including ticket info. Further details can be found at this location.

 

Carcass announced as Damnation Main Stage headliner

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 14th January 2013 by Nico Davidson

England’s extreme metal legends Carcass will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.

The death and grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2nd of this year.

And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event. He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year. Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set. The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!

With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from black metal to post-rock. He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years. But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.

Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period. So get your bank cards at the ready as tickets will no doubt be selling fast.

Damnation 2012: Valkyrian Music recommends…

Posted in Misc. with tags , , , , , , on 4th October 2012 by Nico Davidson

 

Damnation Festival has been spreading darkness over the UK since its unholy birth in 2005 and has proven to be one of the best festivals in Europe. In celebration of this year’s Damnation, the team got together to compile a list of bands that we recommend you go see at this year’s Damnation Festival!

ELECTRIC WIZARD
Chosen by Hannah O’flanagan

In all honesty, if you’re attending Damnation and planning to miss headliners Electric Wizard for any reason other than death, you should hand over your ticket, give back your ‘Metal Fan’ club card and go to HMV to pick up Justin Bieber’s latest album. Aside from being one of the UK’s seminal trad-doom bands, Electric Wizard produce a gut-rumbling, earth shaking sound with sludgey, stoner-tastic elements that is not to be missed. After their recent triumphant return to the US, you should give them the welcome home they deserve and remind them that the UK audiences are the most ferocious.

WODENSTHRONE
Chosen by Iza Raittila

Why? Well, for starters they’re one of the most promising British black metal bands on the scene at the moment. They sing about heathenry and ancient tales, what’s not to like about that? Their take on atmospheric black metal is likely to appeal to fans of Graveland and Drudkh. And their music has an epic and mythological feel to it! Also, Curse is a great album.

PRIMORDIAL
Chosen by Alasdair “Scotch Egg” Dunn

One of the most immersive, intense bands ever to come out of Ireland, Primordial are one of the best Black Metal acts of the age. Their live shows are renowned for being some of the most crushingly heavy, as they blend the essence of their native melancholic Celtic folk melodies and the dark, bleak sound of Epic Black Metal. A totally unique force, and responsible for one of my favorite albums of all time, "To The Nameless Dead", not to mention what many considered the best album of 2011, "Redemption at The Puritan’s Hand." Flawless.

BELPHEGOR
Chosen by Nico Davidson

Ignoring the fact that they look like if they’ll sodomise your corpse with a rusty razor, Belphegor are one of the top bands on the international extreme metal scene. With a sound that could crack a mountain, Belphegor have proven time and again that they can raise hell and brutalise your ear drums like no other extreme metal act. They’re also probably nice guys as well, once you get past their intimidating image.

WINTERFYLLETH
Chosen by Hannah O’flanagan

England’s home grown black metal monsters Winterfylleth have had an absolutely cracking year, storming Bloodstock, Wacken Open Air and Hellfest during the summer. These brilliant performances have shown that they are on a roll at the moment, performing at the top of their game, and subsequently their performance at Damnation should be a blinder. They have a wonderful frosty quality to their music, and they make lyrical nods to their Anglo-Saxon heritage, which is a brilliant take on the black metal scene as a whole. Winterfylleth are fresh and energetic and should be an absolute definite on your list of bands to see.

MY DYING BRIDE
Chosen by Hannah O’flanagan

Melancholic gothic-doom giants My Dying Bride are a definite must-see this year. There’s not much I could possibly say to recommend them enough that a quick listen wouldn’t say anyway, but I will try my hardest! With their roots firmly in death-doom metal, their slow, languorous metamorphosis into the goth-tinged doom they produce these days has helped them to create a solid, distinguishable sound that is unashamedly theirs. There are many imitations, but none of them can come close to the original. My Dying Bride perform darkly romantic music that is decadent in its’ gloominess and triumphant in pain and misery. Make sure you bring a smoking jacket and a bubble pipe, and insist on getting your ale served to you in a deep crystal chalice to get the full effect.

EXTREME NOISE TERROR
Chosen by Tobias Gray

Godfathers of grindcore, crust punk legends and controversial British extreme metal band – Extreme Noise Terror return to drop punk infused mayhem on Leeds. With almost 25 years experience and a huge catalogue to choose from, expect a hardline, political set to ignite the expectant crowd and fuel crazy moshpit antics. The lineup might have changed over the years, but Extreme Noise Terror‘s passion and fury survives, and Damnation is stronger for having them on stage.

HAWK EYES
Chosen by Nico Davidson

Not exactly a band I’d pick to open Damnation Festival but they do have more musical talent than Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Girls Aloud put together. That and after a quick listen, I think it’s safe to say that Hawk Eyes will be rocking the roof of Leeds Uni when they open up Damnation in November.

PIG DESTROYER
Chosen by Lauren Gowdy

Pig Destroyer is a band definitely worth checking out because their energy and stage presence is great, and for a grindcore band, their sound is tight and easy to head bang to. I understand that grindcore is sometimes hard for people to get into, but they’re some of the best I’ve heard since I’ve started listening to metal. This band’s commanding of attention will definitely get you pumped and they’ll definitely be a very memorable performance.

And there you have it, Valkyrian Music’s list of bands to check out at Damnation this year. Of course, you’re free to check out the other bands that are playing as well, since we’re pretty sure that they’re all great as well (otherwise they wouldn’t be on the bill).

Angelspit w/Support @ The Cockpit, Leeds

Posted in Gig, Live with tags , , , , on 2nd October 2012 by Nico Davidson

Angelspit, Uberbyte & Zeitgeist Zero
Room 3 – The Cockpit, Leeds
13th September 2012

After missing Angelspit on their UK tour last year, I wasn’t going to let myself miss them again this year. Embarrassingly, the only band I knew on the bill was Angelspit, so I was in for a treat when Uberbyte and Zeitgeist Zero supported Angelspit in Room 3 of The Cockpit.

Zeitgesit Zero began the night with the sound of air raid sirens echoing through the small room, which was soon followed by a performance full of a heavy, futuristic synth-orientated sound and hypnotic beats. The driving use of dirty basslines added a lot to the band’s sound. I found the vocals to have an interesting sound, as they flowed back and forth over the ever growing crowd. Sadly, I didn’t see Zeitgesit Zero’s full set since I was interviewing Zoog during in the latter part of their set. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to catch a full set of theirs in the future.

By the time I’d finished my aforementioned interview, Uberbyte were already dominating the stage with a mix of aggressive beats and almost-techno-like synth workings while the frontman Uberman whipped the crowd into frenzy. Jump Into Hell was certainly a stand-out track during in their set with its loud, overwhelming basslines and catchy vocal medleys, which got the crowd jumping along like crazed rabbits. It was hard to not be taken in by Uberman’s charismatic attitude on the stage, especially during in the performance of We Like The Bass and an apparently dubstep-influenced song that I never caught the name of.

And the headliners of the night, Angelspit took to the stage. With the crowd all hyped from the brilliant support acts, Angelspit blasted into a raw, violent set that almost tore the venue apart. Featuring tracks that span their whole career, Angelspit performed each song beautifully – yet sadistically – well. Tracks like Wolf and 100% sounded far more raw and distorted compared to the studio versions, though this was no issue at all as it added to the unique sound of the songs while some of the other fan favourites like Kill Kitty and Wreak Havoc were more like their studio versions but still belted out an overwhelming aggressive sound that went down well with the crowd. Hopefully the next time Angelspit play Leeds, they’ll be on a bigger stage.
