Report event


Steorrah blend a doomier version of Swedish Death Metal with song-oriented Prog and Jazz feels and an almost British sense of melancholy. A must-see for fans of Dan Swanö, earlier Opeth or Tiamat. Appropriately schedlued to accompany the impending autumn gloom. These UK dates of the Rhenish quartett are presented by Zero Tolerance magazine and brought to you by

We are thrilled to be sharing stage with Manchester's very own Progressive Death Metal juggernauts Spires.

Here's what the press says about Steorrah's recent album II: Thin White Paint

“This is a band full of confidence, full of style and full of great ideas. The album is a dazzling pool of fantastic musical textures to truly get immersed in. Beautifully written and beautifully produced, this is a fantastic piece of work“
Paul Carter, Zero Tolerance

A rewarding album that manages not to lose its emotional impact in its detailed songwriting.
Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies, Metal Hammer, Record Collector)

Journeys into ominous soundscapes
Metal Hammer (D)

“Like a powerful plough through the deep mire of despair
10/10, Deaf Forever Magazine

“A true cornucopia of emotions, musical cabinet pieces and rhythmical extravaganza.“
7.5/10, Rock Hard Magazine (D)

A clear thumbs up for this nostalgic group with the prospect of a future in which they may gain genre defining character.
11/15, Legacy Magazine

“A real journey through the band's world built and offered to the listener with the utmost professionalism, a Progressive Death Metal journey.“
Pest Webzine

“A sure sign of maturity is detected in acknowledging the roots of metal as well as other highly regarded genres, for STEORRAH gave a real-life demonstration how the Jazz can actually be the cherry on the Metal pie.“

“The album sounds fantastic. And it is for sure – heavy, organic and warm.“

A truly musical challenge we can recommend to every adventurous metal fan.

“If you’re looking for strong progressive death metal that takes a nod to the classics, then this record will definitely put an inky black smile on your face.“
