Thurisaz bring avant-garde, Belgian doom to Perth for Scottish exclusive

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 16th November 2015 by Paul Macmillan

Having just completed a run of Irish dates in October of this year, Thurisaz have now set their sights on the rest of Europe, with their Pulse Of The Mourning tour taking in live appearances in England, Belgium, France, Malta, The Netherlands, and now Scotland.

Thurisaz - Hordes Hexmas Bash 3

Topping the bill at the 3rd Hordes Hexmas Bash on December 05th, their latest album – Pulse Of The Mourning – was described by Metal Observer as “an all-encompassing atmosphere that transcends a mere sum of the single parts” (8.5/10), while Metal Underground dubbed their 2004 debut full-length – Scent Of A Dream – “a spectacular piece of work” (4.5/5).

Their main touring support comes in the form of Cheltenham’s Edenfall, who’s dual-vocal, goth-drenched, doom metal is the perfect warm-up for the Belgian’s icy, winter raid. Reminiscent of the likes of My Dying Bride, this tour is the latest addition to Edenfall’s growing catalogue of credible live work, which includes supports with Blaze Bayley, Leaves Eyes, and Hecate Enthroned.

The Perth date will also see these bands joined by a clutch of Scottish supports. East Kilbride’s Not The Messiah, finalists in 2015’s Metal To The Masses in Scotland, bring some brilliant stomping grooves to the table, while Blood Thread from Glasgow delve deep into technical death metal territory.

Technically Dead – Perth Tech, Prog, Death Metal Show

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 12th May 2015 by Paul Macmillan

Technically Dead

The Fair City will play host to a clutch of heavy, technical, progressive and death metal bands this May 23rd. Top of the bill is Dundee based Animus, plying their diverse brand of down-tuned, modern metal. The show is their first in Perth for some time, and comes as part of their campaign to raise awareness of their upcoming debut album, “Men Into Memories”, due for release this summer.

Support comes from a range of bands from around Scotland. Openers Bloodthread, featuring a former member of Anencephalic, are the most traditional death metal band on the line-up, but they deliver their sound with technical flourish. Descending from the far North, Seed Of Sorrow bring a more melodic aspect to the event, and Glasgow/Falkirk act Centrilia – comprising past members of Madman Is Absolute and Toy – raise the flag for a unique blend of heavy prog and hard-core metal.

The event details are as follows:

Event: Technically Dead
