North of the Wall Festival & Powerchord Promotions presents
A North of the Wall Festival 2018 warm-up show featuring some of the best underground death metal out right now!
VENENUM (GER) — Sepulchral Voice Records
Arisen from the ashes of the too soon defunct EXCORIATE (Germany), VENENUM strikes mercilessly with its Heavy Metal of Death! Even though the band has only released a self-titled mini album for now, one can assume that VENENUM is a band that already matters and will for sure leave its mark in the Death Metal legacy. Mixing asphyxiating riffs of heaviness and eerie passages of morbid darkness, VENENUM definitely knows how to combine the best of death and darkness into their age old Metal cauldron.
SLÆGT (DEN) – Ván Records
Slægt started as a solo-project of Oskar J. Frederiksen (lead vocals & guitars) in 2011. The beginning saw Slægt delve in raw and primitive black metal aggression. Over time the band has developed into having a full line-up now including Anders M. Jørgensen (guitars), Olle Bergholz (bass guitar) and Adam ”CCsquele” Nielsen (drums). Although the current version of Slægt seems to have progressed a lot since its early days, the essence still remains untouched. Stylistically influences are now drawn from a broader spectrum from such diverse movements as the NWOBHM and the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s. Slægt delivers what can be best described as an epic blackened heavy metal with lots of catchy moments, played fast but without the usual blastbeats, exploring sound patterns that seem familiar, but always making them sound fresh. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.
Step into the church of the night with the beautiful and damned sons of Copenhagen.
Honed and evolved since 2013 from black thrash roots, into a formidable 2-man black metal force. Displaying influence from first and second wave black metal, raw heavy metal and a strong sense of creativity, NNGNN are currently writing for their debut album (due for release in summer 2018).
Black/death metal uprisers from Glasgow/Dunoon.
