DESCRIPTION

CRYPTOPSY
Cryptopsy is an influential extreme metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For over 20 years, they have sculpted and pushed the boundaries of their metal genre by releasing seven studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not, The Unspoken King and CRYPTOPSY), a live album (None So Live), a best of (The Best of Us Bleed) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation).

They have since toured worldwide taking Europe by storm year after year including stops at some of the major summer festivals and are widely recognized as one of the most powerful live performers within their scene.

THE KING IS BLIND
A band of pedigree, The King Is Blind combine the premier elements of Death, Doom and HEAVY Metal to create a fearsome package of Monolithic Metal, backed by blistering and skull-shattering live performances. Hailing from East Anglia (UK), The King Is Blind perform dark, aggressive music with an impressive narrative arc and genuinely terrifying majesty.

JØTNARR
... are a trio hailing from the fairly un-grim wastes of Colchester in the east of England. Chris, Simon and Oli have all been plugging away in various bands such as Meadows, Mother Sky, and Three Thrones (which are all still going concerns) before getting together in 2013 to jam what could be considered to be black metal, with its scathing, evil atmosphere, fused to a belligerently hardcore punk backbone, topped off with elements of screamo. Heavy, devastating and yet melodic. Lyrics are concerned with human relationships with the natural world, environmental degradation, loss, grief and wolves. Their interests include King Diamond, Black Sabbath, and playing shows. For fans of early Ulver, His Hero Is Gone and Wolves In The Throne Room.
