An unearthly concoction of 60s garage rock, head-spinning psychedelia and ‘1991-The-Year-Punk-Broke’ grit, Black Moth rose from the Leeds underground scene, taking their trash culture fixations and their love for Stooges squalor and Sabbath sulphur to create an onslaught of monumental riff sorcery and serpentine grace.

A relentless touring force, Black Moth have played at festivals such as Leeds, Reading and Download, as well as two European tours and a massive 15-date UK headline run not to mention stamping their live authority on support slots with Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, Red Fang, Turbowolf and Truckfighters to name just a few.

Also announced are Brighton based filthpounders Sea Bastard, northern gut-manglers Coltsblood, Gallic doom/death veterans Ataraxie, Croydon’s titans of bong-mangled heaviosity Slabdragger and purveyors of avalanche-inducing funereal doom, Eye Of Solitude.

About Louise Swift

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!
