Bloodstock Festival New Blood Stage Feature Part 1

MTTM

 

In this feature I shall be covering five bands that are set to perform on the New Blood stage at Bloodstock Festival 2016. All gained their spot by winning a particular Metal To The Masses Competition. 
The bios shall be very brief, but this is all about checking out each bands music. That’s what will decide if you wish to possibly check them out at the festival itself this August. You may not have heard of a lot of these bands, but wasn’t Mastodon etc a band you never heard of at one point! 
Enough talk, lets get down to business! 

Famyne

Famyne

Canterbury based Famyne play psychedelic doom that is full of sludge-laden riffs and haunting vocals. Frontman Tom Vane also has a very powerful range. 
Check out “The Forgotten” here! 

Husk

HUSK 

West Midlands based Husk are very hard to describe. There’s elements of Black Metal, Prog, Death, Groove. There’s just so much going on here. It doesn’t sound like it would work on paper, but it really does! 
Check out “Plague Of Man” here! 

Art Of Deception 

Art Of Deception

Art Of Deception hail from Norway. They play crunching melodic death metal. Full of duelling guitars, riffs and solos. This band are really really good! 
Check out “Killing” here! 

The Crawling 

The Crawling

Lisburn based The Crawling play slow death metal that is very much in the vein of early Paradise Lost. Full of chugging riffs and all that goodness! 
Check out “End Of Rope” here! 

Ten Ton Slug 

Ten Ton Slug

Galway based Ten Ton Slug play their own unique band of sludge groove metal with added gutteral/scream vocals. 
Check out “Godes Andsaca” here! 

That’s the first five bands covered in this line of features. I strongly suggest checking all the bands out and following our features. Five bands at a time, and who knows? You could find your new favourite band!

Subsist

Subsist 

 

Subsist

 

Carlow based Subsist have been very quite in the recent times. That’s all set to change though! I was informed by two band members at the Metal To The Masses final that they have a new EP in the works and hyped for what they have coming! 
The lads have already supported Chelsea Grin and Evil Scarecrow. To include members who were previously in other bands.  Put that all together and all have learned the lessons needed to succeed as a band and improve. 
Certain members were busy with college stuff and ensuring their education instead of chasing a pipe dream. Which will also stand to them as you always need a plan A,B,C and D in this life… 
They’re getting ready to come back and hit it hard so get to know this band. Great potential here and their first single proved that. Considering they’re hyped about their new material and ready to have a right go at it. I’d say these lads will have a good run if all works out for them. 

Check out “The Night After” here. Remember, this is an older song and their next output shall be better!

Tom DeLonge Now Focusing On Imminent Alien Invasion Prevention!

TOM

 

Tom DeLonge left Blink 182 last year and it wasn’t for reasons you might think! Aka they’re shite and irrelevant. No, the reasoning behind was Blink were too focused on All The Small Things and not focusing on the fact we are in danger from the real Enema Of The State! 
He has now dedicated himself to studying UFO’s as he believes it’s a matter of national security. He claims to have 10 people that he’s working with that are at the highest levels of the Department of Defense and NASA and the military. Tin foil hats all in tow… 

 

Lets look at all this though! It’s 2016. Independence Day 2 is coming with an original cast member that died in the first film and no sign of Will Smith. Blink 182 are releasing their 7th album. Donald Trump is running for president. It’s like the 90’s most irrelevant shite is all making a comeback! Maybe this is the final straw for the Aliens? 
July 4th is coming! Get onto Will Smith and offer him a Hancock sequel. Pay people to go and see Bad Boys 3. Whatever it takes to get him onbaord! Jeff Goldblum is at the ready and Tom Delonge in leading the campaign! 
As a public service announcement, I am sharing this information with you! Not many have watched “Mars Attacks” and that film hold the key to defending ourselves from an Alien invasion. When the song Slim Whitman – Indian Love Call is played. It causes their heads to explode! I am linking the song here so you have access to this on July 4th or whenever the Aliens attack. 

 

Tom also claims to know things he can’t talk about. Which automatically back up all his claims and validates everything he says. The Aliens are coming! We Must Prepare!

Horrenda

Horrenda 
HORRENDA pic

Dublin based Horrenda started as an experimental black metal solo project of Darragh “Outis” O’Connor in 2015. Most of the writing was done while playing with Theories Divide in which he split from in 2015, although still playing with Axial Symmetry and Saint Slaughter. The man doesn’t stop! 
In September 2015, Darragh released the project’s first two releases “Ecthra” and “Bellum Civile”.  He played bass, guitars, keys and did the vocals on all the demo tracks.Very soon after these releases dropped on Bandcamp, Horrenda were asked to be a part of the Wulfrune Worxwil/Vinland Wulf Warfield French label. Wulfrune Worxwil put out special cassette editions of “Ecthra” and “Bellum Civile” in November 2015.
In 2016, Horrenda stepped it up a notch and became and full live band focused on faster heavier material for their live sound. Darragh changed the tone of the band into something more akin to a mix of Mayhem, Darkthrone and the genre of Black gaze. Covering topics such as Irish mythology, politics and Irish history.
The project found a drummer (and later bassist) in Daragh “Créachta” Kenny (MORALITY, SVET KANT). Max “Urât” Bevan (EMETOPHILE and KOMANA) joined as a studio member. In April 2016, the outfit was completed with Arron “Nomad” O’ Shaughnessy on  Lead Vocals.
Horrenda were then signed to Depressive Illusions Records in 2016 and they released the “Neronian Times” demo in April 2016.
That’s their already impressive bio after such a short space of time. It’s also great to see a down and dirty Black metal band appearing here in Ireland. It’s a genre that’s very rare here now in many regards. This type of music was a trend in the 90’s, so they’re clearly doing it for the love of the music and have played quite a few gigs this year in Dublin already. 
If you’re a fan of old school Black metal? You’re going to love this band! The genre has became very melodic I suppose in many regards and this sound is quite unique now to hear from a young band. 

Check out EYE here. This is a high quality live recording and showcases their horrible nasty sound. But in the best possible way!

Dream Awake

Dream Awake 
DREAM 2

I was introduced to Belfast based Post Hardcore band Dream Awake a few days ago. Since then I’ve crash coursed their time as a band since 2014. 
Well, what do I think? I’m pretty damn impressed! This band are constantly improving and honing their craft at a rapid rate. Their latest offering “Summit” has the usual chugging riffs you would expect of a band of their genre, but they also have a great sense of melody in their lead guitar and the vocals to back in up! The band really make use of the fact they have two vocalists and use each to their absolute strengths. 
I reckon this band have an extremely bright future ahead of them. They have massive potential and their constant improvement in output only adds more fuel to that notion. 
The UK would love this band and I hope they’re sending “Summit” to the Fresh Blood radio show on Kerrang and really attacking the UK based groups online! This island of ours is limited, but with the sound this band have they really should start sending it anywhere they can across the pond. 

Check out “Summit” here and see why I reckon these lads are really on the right track and bigger things are coming!

Call To Arms

Call To Arms 

11036640_1626151730942952_6227281323717326814_o

Dublin based Call To Arms are a band on the rise! Considering the band members are all aged between 18 and 21, it’s quite scary how good this band are becoming and what they have already achieved in two years. 
I’ve been following their progress for quite a while now and finally caught them live last month at the Bloodstock – Metal To The Masses Final. I was blown away! For such a young man, frontman Dean has the stage presence and charisma of someone that has played live for about 5/10 years. He’s just a natural and holds the crowd in the palm of his hand throughout. He makes the crowd feel part of it and encourage them to get involved. Behind him he has an extremely talented band that again sound like they have played years beyond what they have… 
The band are also very highly thought of within the Irish scene. H from DME took to his personal Facebook page in praise of the band in their promotion of their support slot with Evil Scarecrow. And I quote! “Call To Arms. Take a bow!” High praise indeed! They have also performed in front of and left a great impression on Simon Hall of Bloodstock Festival. Take into consideration the lower level people in the scene here all rate them and speak highly of them. It shows the rise is not changing them or going to their head. Which is a testament to the lads and will stand them in good steed going forward. 
The band are working away on new material from what I can gather as they played a new song last month when I saw them live. For me personally, the best song in their set. Made the older songs look weak in many regards so another sign they aren’t satisfied and want to improve all the time! 
I’ve linked their song “Mirrors” here, and I suggest you check it out as it’s now a live favourite of theirs. After that, follow the lads online and make sure you see this band live! You’ll be witnessing their rise which shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Big things are coming for this band! Really Big Things!!
