PROFANATICA er black metal fra USA.
https://profanatica-us.bandcamp.com/album/the-curling-flame-of-blasphemy
Profanatica er på flere måder et legendarisk black metalband, både i forhold til deres musik men også i den egentlige forstand, da bandet faktisk var et af de første black metalbands i USA. De blev dannet i de mørke og blodige 90’ere. Profanatica lagde i begyndelsen scener ned gennem hele USA med deres fuldkomne blasfemi og barbariske primitivisme og trak sig derefter tilbage til skyggerne som et kultikon, der først skulle genopstå år senere, da den sorte metal-scene endelig havde vokset sig stor og stærk. Da bandet returnerede i 2007 var det med fuld styrke og med den kendte Profanatica-signaturlyd helt intakt. Nu, ti år efter, står Profanatica stærkere end nogensinde før og er stadig i stand til at udvikle deres lyd og overraske deres publikum.

RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE er black-/dødsmetal fra Canada
https://ritesofthydegringolade.bandcamp.com/
Den første inkarnation af Rites of Your Degringolade, der spænder over seks år mellem udgivelserne af deres selvbetegnede demo i 1999 og deres tredje album i 2005, var præget af en form for kontrolleret kaos og en unik hybrid af black- og dødsmetal, der virkelig skar sin egen niche i genren, men derefter blev lagt til hvile alt for tidligt.
Efter en pause på ti år gendannede grundlæggeren af bandet Paulus Kressman bandet igen i 2015, med det mål at spille nogle liveshows og måske endda udgive nyt materiale. Det sidste er nu, heldigvis ved at blive opfyldt, med optagelsen af en en-sangdemo, der bekræfter at bandet intet har mistet af styrke i deres dvaletid.

AUROCH er dødsmetal fra Canada
https://auroch1.bandcamp.com/
Det vancouverbaserede dødsmetalband har siden udgivelsen af deres “Taman Shud” LP fra 2014, langsomt fået anerkendelse som et af de mest aktive bands på scenen. Siden da har dødsmetal-powertrioen bestående af vokalist / guitarist Sebastian og vokalist / bassist Shawn Haché (som begge også er med i det genrebeslægtede band MITOCHONDRION) og trommeslager Zack Chandler, været konsekvent aktiv på livescenen med USA og Canada som hovedaftagere og med en nyligt overstået Europatur under bæltet.

De fænomenale doom-specialister Bell Witch fra Seattle sætter den 4. april tempoet helt ned i Pumpehusets sort sal.

Bell Witch’ har altid været omgærdet af døden, både i deres tekster, men i den grad også i det musikalske udtryk, der passende kan få mærkatet begravelsesdoom – eller snarere spøgelselsdoom, da bandets navn referer til en poltergeist-fortælling fra amerikansk folklore . Med kun bas, trommer og vokal mestrer duoen den slæbende dødsdoom med tyste bølgedale og langsomt snigende eksplosioner af knugende mørke.

Det har de gjort siden debuten “Longing” fra 2012, og deres seneste plade “Mirror Reaper” er et mindre mesterværk. Pladen består af ét enkelt nummer på små 83 minutter, der fuldstændig fucker med tidsfornemmelsen gennem langstrakte, åbne og ceremonielle lydflader, der – uden man opdager det – glider over i dæmoniske, altoverskyggende mørkemeditationer med kælderdybe vokaler. Med “Mirror Reaper” spiller Bell Witch sig ind på det legendeterritorie, som Sleep erobrede med deres banebrydende et-nummer-album “Dopesmoker” fra 1996.

I 2016 kom døden desværre lidt for tæt på bandet, da tidligere trommeslager og vokalist Adrien Guerra pludseligt døde. Det har sat sit aftryk på Bell Witch’ nye plade “Mirror Reaper”, der på sin vis er en hyldest til afdøde Guerra.

Supporten på aftenen kommer fra det franske doomband Monarch, der er aktuelle med pladen ‘Never Forever’, udgivet af Profound Lore.

Iron Void (uk) – Shadow King Records
https://www.facebook.com/ironvoid
https://ironvoid.bandcamp.com/
Iron Void was originally formed by Jonathan ‘Sealey’ Seale & Andy Whittaker (Solstice, The Lamp of Thoth) in 1998 in order to create an old-school Doom Metal band, worshipping at the altar of Doom legends such as Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, etc.

The band reformed in 2008, with the current line-up consisting of Jonathan ‘Sealey’ Seale (Bass & Vocals), Steve Wilson (Guitars & Vocals) & Richard Maw (Drums).

The Debut EP, ‘Spell of Ruin’, was released on CD in 2010 and re-released in 2012 via Doomanoid Records. Their self-titled debut full length album was released on CD in 2014 via Barbarian Wrath and released on limited edition vinyl by Fear Me! Music in 2015. The critically acclaimed 2nd album, ‘Doomsday’ (recorded & produced at Skyhammer Studio by Chris Fielding (Conan, Winterfylleth, Electric Wizard) and mastered by James Plotkin) was released on CD/DD via Doomanoid Records in 2015 and released on limited gatefold vinyl via Fear Me! Music in 2016.

Live highlights: UK / European shows and tours with Pentagram, Venom Inc., Vardis, Pagan Altar, Conan, Wretch, Death Penalty, Sorcerer, Lord Vicar, Magma Rise, Goatess, Hooded Priest, King Heavy, Arkham Witch, Nomad Son, The Prophecy, Mortalicum, Witchsorrow, Serpent Venom, Alunah, Solstice, The Lamp of Thoth and many more.

Desolate Pathway (uk) – WormHoleDeath Records
http://www.desolatepathway.com/
https://www.facebook.com/desolatepathway/
Desolate Pathway started out in May 2014 as a four piece founded by former Pagan Altar guitarist Vince Hempstead.

Desolate Pathway is a UK based Epic Traditional Doom band who’s lyrics tell fantasy and myth based stories of quests, death, doom and destruction, within heavy riff based doom with NWOBHM influences.

Over almost three years, with two albums and a single already under their belts, there have been several band member changes culminating in the present line up of Vince Hempstead (vocals/guitar 2014-present) and Mags (drums/backing vocals 2014-present).

Having been patient with finding the right label to sign with since forming, Desolate Pathway have now found the perfect label in Worm Hole Death for worldwide

distribution of both albums, Valley of the King for digital release and Of Gods and Heroes for physical and digital release.

Now Desolate Pathway look forward to a bright future with overseas festivals already booked in Austria and Sweden for 2017 and 2018, having already played the highly revered and much renowned Malta Doom Metal Festival in 2016.

Desolate Pathway are now in the process of writing their third album keeping their inimitable and instantly recognisable epic style and sound.

RAM (swe) – Metal Blade Records
https://www.facebook.com/RAMheavymetal/
http://www.ram-metal.com/
Swedish spearhead RAM struck the Heavy Metal scene with their new master piece ROD, including winning soundchecks, getting full points on reviews and appear on the front cover in major magazines. The album also entered the official German album charts on position 64!
All in all, this band is the hottest thing in the current underground Heavy Metal scene!

SLÆGT (dk) – Ván Records
https://www.facebook.com/Slaegt
http://slaegt.bandcamp.com/releases
Slægt started as a solo-project of Oskar J. Frederiksen (lead vocals & guitars) in 2011. The beginning saw Slægt delve in raw and primitive black metal aggression. Over time the band has developed into having a full line-up now including Anders M. Jørgensen (guitars), Olle Bergholz (bass guitar) and Adam ”CCsquele” Nielsen (drums). Although the current version of Slægt seems to have progressed a lot since its early days, the essence still remains untouched. Stylistically influences are now drawn from a broader spectrum from such diverse movements as the NWOBHM and the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s. Slægt delivers what can be best described as an epic blackened heavy metal with lots of catchy moments, played fast but without the usual blastbeats, exploring sound patterns that seem familiar, but always making them sound fresh. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.
The band has, in the current constellation, released the EP “Beautiful and Damned” (Iron Bonehead Productions), which came out in December 2015, and the full-length “Domus Mysterium” (Ván Records), which came out in May 2017. Both releases have received great reviews, at home and abroad, and with a victorious concert at the Copenhell festival, in Copenhagen, June 2017, the band has cemented its place as one of the most exciting and promising bands on the Danish metal scene.

Step into the church of the night with the beautiful and damned sons of Copenhagen.

ENCYRCLE (dk) – Unspeakable Axe Records / Dark Decent Records
https://www.facebook.com/encyrcle
https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/encyrcle
The sonic vessel ENCYRCLE appeared on the map in 2015 with a widely praised eponymous debut album, by many referred to as ‘nocturnal speed metal’. While speed is characteristic of a vessel, it is not essence. ENCYRCLE is the story of the journey into the Other, nightly Sister and Source, where all things are lost and gained in an otherworldly ecstasy. Their stage becomes a meeting ground for dissolution and dawn, violence and melancholy. Thus, in the shamanic vein of every potent rock ‘n’ roll artist of past, ENCYRCLE play the night’s heavy metal. Rock solid in aim, yet serpent-like in method, the troupe will return to land once more in the fall of 2016 with a three-track EP, foreshadowing their most daring adventure yet, their follow-up album, come 2017
