The only band that Killtown Bookings is currently managing in danish newcomers SLÆGT. Below you will find a description and the scheduled show dates for 2016/2017 so far. If you want to book Slægt for a show or a festival please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
Slægt (dk) – Ván Records
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.
Step into the church of the night with the beautiful and damned sons of Copenhagen.

Vorum (fin) – Sepulchral Voice Records
VORUM, who hail from Åland, Finland, is a band dedicated to spreading the treacherous and mad gospel of Death’s Metal. After the release of their acclaimed debut full length “Poisoned Void” (Woodcut Records) in 2013 the band followed this up with the MLP “Current Mouth” on Sepulchral Voice which firmly has gripped a chokehold on listeners scince its release in 2015.
EMBRACE THE DEPTHS CALL
Degial (swe) – Sepulchral Voice Records
DEGIAL from Uppsala, Sweden is an upcoming blackened death metal outfit part of the infamous “Uppsala Metal ov Death” club. Their 2012 debut album “Death´s striking Wings” in 2012 on Sepulchral Voice Records (Necros Christos, Grave Miasma) established them in the metal underground. Now in 2015 they have released the follow up; “Savage Mutany” also on Sepulchral Voice. Their music can best be described as dark occult blackened Death Metal with lyrical themes about death, chaos and blasphemy.
Gold (nl) – Van Records
Hailing from The Netherlands, GOLD is a dark rock, post-everything band. GOLD was initially conceived in 2011 by guitarist Thomas Sciarone (ex-The Devil’s Blood) and vocalist Milena Eva. Their mission statement was to play a distinct form of heavy rock as a monument to civilization’s decline. With a vocalist named after Franz Kafka’s lover, it may come as no surprise that GOLD’s unique output deals with solitude, love and absence of prospect.
In 2015 they released their second album, No Image via Ván Records and Profound Lore Records in North America. Gold has performed at prestegious festivals such as Roadburn, MetalDays, Musklerock, Hell Over Hammaburg and Hard Rock Hell in the past.
Abysmal Grief (it) – Horror Records
Abysmal Grief is an Italian gothic and doom metal band, formed in Genoa in 1996 by a mysterious character named Regen Graves, enthusiast of Occultism, Black Magic and Horror culture, with the intent to translate into music his spiritual researches. The lack of information about the band and its members, and the gloomy and mournful image that the group has built have favored the birth of a macabre and disturbing aura around them.
The official and definitive line up was completed only at the end of 1997, including Regen Graves (guitars), Labes C. Necrothytus (keyboards & back vocals), Lord Alastair (bass), Garian (vocals) and Lord of Fog (drums), and it saw the release of the first demo tape entitled “Funereal”. The real live activity started only in 2005, with the arrival of a more stable drummer called William Blisset: these concerts were characterized by a strong scenography including objects stolen from graveyards, huge use of candles and smoke machines, and throw of real living worms on the crowd. Many other drummers took place for concerts and studio works until 2013, when former drummer Lord of Fog finally reunited with the band after almost 14 years. Abysmal Grief have just released now their 4th studio album in November 2015, entitled “Strange Rites of Evil”, a complex opus deeply focused on Death and religious superstitions, and will celebrate in November 2016 their 20th anniversary.
Epitaph (it) – High Roller Records
Epitaph was spawned in 1987, by Black Hole escapees Mauro Tollini and Nicola Murari (a.k.a. Luther Gordon and Nicholas Murray, drums and guitar/bass guitar respectively during Black Hole´s heyday). Leaving the aforementioned band after releasing the Land of Mystery album in 1985 that prodigiously flawed gem of weird and occult doom wishing to vent their passion in a crunchier metal way, they put on the short-lived Sacrilege, which in turn horridly blossomed into Epitaph proper: an act deeply rooted in the revered Italian dark sound tradition. In the years that followed, while leaving a wake of blistering shows, three demos were released, which are now relics much sought after. Now, after a dreadful hiatus of almost 20 years, Epitaph are back into the fold, having compulsorily enrolled the services of Emiliano il Confessore (one time singer in All Souls Day) and hard-bluesman Lorenzo Loatelli as the new guitar player. The long gestated full-length album, “Crawling out of the Crypt” boasting both new and revamped old material, was released in 2014 through High Roller Records and has steadily gained appreciation ever since.
Pissgrave (us) – Profound Lore Records
Philadelphia, PA’s PISSGRAVE are a new brutal and raw death metal band who have only one demo cassette, which sold out pretty much immediately, released under their name prior to their upcoming debut full-length album “Suicide Euphoria”. They have created a bit of a buzz in the American death metal underground, especially after supporting DEAD CONGREGATION on a short U.S. tour in the fall of 2014 which showcased the band’s devastating live set. With “Suicide Euphoria”, which was produced by Arthur Rizk (PRURIENT, Power Trip, Inquisition), PISSGRAVE have created one of the sickest, rawest, most depraved and violent death metal releases of the year. Sounding unlike anything going on in death metal today, PISSGRAVE will reveal themselves as one of the most promising prospects in underground death metal today with their debut LP.
Cruciamentum (uk) – Profound Lore Records
Cruciamentum was formed in England during 2007 and recorded their first demo, “Rotten Flesh Crucifix” which was limited to 30 copies in 2008. The second demo, “Convocation of Crawling Chaos” was released in 2009 and led to the band quickly signing to Nuclear Winter Records. 2011 saw both the release of “Eroding Chaos unto Ascendant Flesh” (released on Hell’s Headbangers), a split 7” with Vasaleth from the US, and the MLP/CD “Engulfed in Desolation” (released on Nuclear Winter Records). Cruciamentum have played live extensively throughout their short career, and have built a reputation of being a powerful live act. They have toured Europe with Sonne Adam (Century Media Records), twice in the US with Anhedonist (Dark Descent Records), performed at festivals such as Maryland Deathfest (US), Chaos in Tejas (US), Hell’s Pleasure (Ger), Kill-Town Deathfest (Den), NRW Deathfest (Ger), Black Mass Ritual III (Fin), Martydroom Festival (US), as well as having performed numerous dates in Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Greece and Romania amongst others. 2015 saw the much awaited release of Cruciamentum’s debut album “Charnel Passages” on Profound Lore Records, with a vinyl version following shortly after on Me Saco Un Ojo. Cruciamentum performs dark, violent death metal influenced by Immolation, Demigod, Incantation, Absu, Slayer, Morbid Angel, Mystifier, Disembowelment etc.
Dread Sovereign (irl) – Van Records
Dread Sovereign is the born dead brain child of Nemtheanga from Primordial. Years of string hacking and slashing on guitar have finally come to realization as backed by Dubh SOL (Primordial) on drums and Bones (Wizards of Firetop Mountain/ZOM) on guitar they have forged a new band.The blueprint is rough, raw old school doom / metal which hails of Venom, Saint Vitus, Cirith Ungol and touches of late 80s early sepulchral black metal. Not intended to re-invent the wheel just to give it a good kicking in the true old evil metal fashion.
Chaos Echoes (fr) – Nuclear War Now! Productions
Chaos Echœs is a French experimental dark death metal band formed during 2011 on the ashes of Bloody Sign (1995-2010), by Kalevi Uibo & Ilmar Uibo with the intent to transport their death metal to a black hole of improvisations, psychedelia and trance. Extracting the material out of its formal and acoustic envelope to generate a hybrid vitality. Into the unknown…
Tyranny (fin) – Dark Decent Records
Tyranny is an uncompromising Funeral Doom band from Finland, formed in 2001. The current discography of the Tyranny Duumvirate comprises of “Bleak Vistae” EP released in 2004 and “Tides of Awakening” full-length released in 2005. Tyranny plays rarely live but have appeared recently at Kill-Town Death Fest (2012) and Roskilde Festival (2013) after an 7 year hiatus from performances outside Finland. The band is currently slowly building the next album and scheduled to perform at the 2014 Roadburn Festival.
Undergang (dk) -Me Saco Un Ojo Records
Undergang was spawned from the sewers of the Copenhagen underground in the late spring of 2008, with the intention to bring back rot and putridity to the Death Metal scene. Undergang deliver ultra heavy Death Metal in the best traditions of Suffocaton(old), Rottrevore, (old) Carcass, Autopsy and such like with their own twist and a huge splash of sludge. The sound is chokingly fat, low and murky, yet all instruments are quite clear, vocals are used more like an instrument too, low gurgling growls perfectly add to the deadly atmosphere.
