Following on from last years storming day long two stage event, we are proud to announce Doom Over London 2016 – The Sixth Edition. Expanded to take in three stages across  two days, with an exclusive single stage preshow on the first day.

Hosted in the North London enclave of Tufnell Park and taking over the Dome, Boston Music Room and Aces & Eights, Doom Over London 2016 will provide a stellar line up across the spectrum of underground doom, experimental gloom and occult infused metal. Taking place between the 25th and 27th March, expect to see some fantastic performances from acts that vary from the gurgling underbelly of the modern cult scene to those who helped laid the foundation of the metal underground as we know it.
We are very, very proud to announce our opening handful of bands, who are amongst 40 odd groups that will appear at next years event. Expect additional attractions, featured acts and details on featured food and drink to come.

Following a 14 year writing hiatus, we are happy to welcome for an exclusive show in the UK for many, many years this fantastic Norwegian talent.  Dark, progressive and avantgarde metal at its finest, In The Woods tracked three ageless albums on top of their classic demo and rounded off with an album that reinterpreted and collected rare tracks before calling it a day in 2003. Fast forward to 2014 and the band re-incorporating with an invigorated line up of original members, which sees this fantastic artist working on a new album.  Music in its purest form…..

Very effectively described as a two man army playing downtuned heaviness, Sardonis will bring the instrumental hurt to proceedings. With a new album out now on Consouling Sounds, expect a tidal wave of dirge to overcome you.

Autumnal are one of the cornerstones of Iberian doom metal, having established way back in 1998. Their upcoming second album promises to bring their brand of doom to the fore with a debut UK appearance. Equal parts intensity, atmosphere and crushing heaviness, we expect nothing but a somewhat large demolition of the audience.

We have no idea what is in the water in this country but the moment we heard their debut EP, we knew they had to play this event.  With a great single out on Svart Records and an album to follow in 2016, Bathsheba will pull you out from the depths of the charcoal mountains and into the oath of doom.

We are very proud to welcome back our Dutch friends, for a long overdue London performance. Now in their 21st year , Officium Triste  laid the ground for melodic death doom, realeasing some of the early highlights of the scene that in recent years have seen reissues detailing their dark moods and outstanding melodies. Expect none more painstakingly gloomy.

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!
