LIVE MUSIC SHOWCASE
After the days events, we will close the doors for a couple of hours and transform the main space downstairs for a live showcase from 7pm. We want to show you the best the WORLD has to offer with a mixture of grindcore, black metal and high energy metal. Separate ‘evening only’ tickets are also available if you can’t attend during the day.
Hailing from Singapore, Wormrot was formed in 2007, and since their formation have been doing extensive tours in the US, EU and the neighbouring Asian countries. Aside from the usual underground shows in a converted garage in Denver, a farm in France, a few squats in Europe or a cave in Penang, they've also played at festivals like Glastonbury Festival (UK), Maryland Death Fest (US), Obscene Extreme Festival (CZ), Scion Rock Fest (US), SXSW (US), Netherlands Death Festival (NL), Incubate Fest (NL), Bloodshed Fest (NL), Baybeats (SG), Earslaughter Fest (CA) and many more.
Three piece politically charged crust black metallers Dawn Ray’d are riding on a wave of popularity after their excellent release ‘The Unlawful Assembly’ on Prosthetic Records. Equal parts malice and spite; ethereality and exultation. From clean singing to full thrashing pace, the band “breathes new fire into black metal's small but sturdy leftist tradition, crafting potent, violin-laced atmospheric black metal songs that double as battle hymns for the class war” – Noisey
ZOMBIES ATE MY GIRLFRIEND
Zombies ate my girlfriend is a high-energy metal band from Cape Town, South Africa. Established in 2012, their latest full-length album “Shun the Reptile” released to critical acclaim in November 2018.
Renowned as one of South Africa’s top metal acts, the band has enjoyed sharing stages with a slew of touring bands from abroad. Including, Protest the Hero, The Darkest Hour, 36 Crazyfists, Monuments, August Burns Red, Unearth and DevilDriver. In 2016 the guys were crowned champions of the Wacken Metal Battle at the legendary Wacken Open Air in Germany, making them the first South African band to achieve this feat.
Exhumed from Belfast, Ireland by the always consistent Sentient Ruin, The Sweat of Augury is a voracious assault of top-notch Grind. My initial reaction to Unyielding Love was that they have some sort of Metal Ouija board and conjured forth the spirit of the legendary Discordance Axis. But honestly, as my time with this band increased, I realised that it would be unfair to draw those comparisons. And I don’t mean that as a disservice or a strike against Unyielding Love. They do pull forth from the grave of that influence. Yet, they truly embody their own sphere and sonic entity. One will find layers to be pulled back like a surgeon preparing to do open heart surgery.
