Impaled Nazarene Announced for Doom Over London VI
Following our previous additions, Doom Over London 2016 – The Sixth Edition are ecstatic to bring you the next line up announcement for the event, and one that will bring some more misery and a fair amount of filth to the bill.
Bringing the hate and the hurt for over a quarter of a century, these Finnish legends return to the UK for an exclusive appearance. Having constantly shape shifted but lost none of their ferocity, we expect nothing short of a full scale assault.
Oozing deep mysticism and frozen melodies in sparse but haunting song structures, Darkher haunt and mesmerize. With a stellar EP having rave reviews, this is doom on a quieter, more menacing front. No need for massive chunky distortions, just atmospheric entrancement.
Stiflingly loud, Bossk will be airing tracks from their new album, their first for Deathwish Records following on from their support slots for AmenRa and Converge. We are super excited to be able to host the band, sounding as huge as ever!
Scots post-metal inventors Falloch absolutely blew us away with their support slot with Lantlos, and latest album, ‘This Island, Our Funeral’ has woven its way into our conciousness. Heavy, experimental – nothing this band can do is wrong.
Having a clutch of fantastic albums out, Birmingham based Alunah bring some more doom laden classic rock grooves to Doom Over London. Filled with face melting riffs, melody, a touch of the occult and a some psychedelic leanings, Alunah will inspire!
Londoners Torpor are a bit of an ace up the sleeve – sludgey, doomy hardcore oppressiveness that pretty much wants to turn your bones into powder. Having released their debut earlier this year, we reckon they’re going to bring the misery!
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
