A storytelling psychedelic metal formation from the Netherlands
Genre: psychedelic blend of black, doom, stoner and progressive metal, 70’s rock, blues, as well as many other influences.
CTHULUMINATI was formed in 2015, by Devi Hisgen, Rami Wohl and Stefan Strausz after playing together for more than a year in Psychedelic Black ‘N Roll formation Marquis. Driven to evolve their music even further into the unknown, a new format was chosen in which a Psychedelic musical flow stands central. The name “Cthuluminati” was chosen to represent the band’s themes, incorporating modern conspiracies and mythology into classic Lovecraftian folklore. Soon after, Rick Lieffering (FENRIS) joined on drums. With a new complete line-up, the band played shows regularly across the Netherlands, and started recording their first full-length album ‘Reliqideus” in the summer of 2016. With the aid of Bas the Rooij (main producer), Stephen van Haestrecht (recording and production on drums) and Toni Lindgren (mastering), the album was finished end of 2017.

A Thin Line
Before releasing the album, band member Rick quit the band personal reasons, and the band decided to focus on building forth on the band’s central themes, writing new music and stories around the band’s musical content. In the summer of 2018, Seth van de Loo (SEVERE TORTURE) decided to join the band on drums.After a year of preparations and hard work, they are ready to release a full album “Reliqideus” and contains six lengthy tracks.

On July 20th 2019 the first album from Belgium band Gallia has been released, called ‘Everflame’. This album has been released through the band themselves, so this is a full Independent Release…
A few years ago, Gallia was founded as a musical project, but soon outgrew that term. Nowadays, Gallia is a five-person symphonic metal band from Belgium with original songs and a strong passion for music.
Gallia’s songs are composed by lead guitarist Yannick. He is one of the founders of Gallia and the creative brain behind the band. He started with music theory and clarinet at a young age, and discovered the joy of being on stage and making music. Next to his solo project where he writes symphonic pieces, he started Gallia and hopes to bring joy to others through the music the band works on.
Davy is the rhythm guitarist that supports the lead guitar. Davy started in 2011 with making music, when he was first handed an electric guitar. He now translates his passion for the metal genre to the songs of Gallia. Ever since he has been a fixture in this band.
The bass melody is played by Laurens. Since his teenage years, Laurens has been a fan of hard rock and metal genres, and founded Gallia together with Yannick. Laurens picked up the bass guitar and hasn’t put it down since. He plays with a lot of enthusiasm and occasionally ventures out to vocals.
The lead vocalist, however, is Elyn. She joined Gallia in 2015. She has a background in musicals and experience with classical singing, but isn’t afraid of the challenge that metal brings. Since she joined, she has also picked up writing lyrics for Gallia.
The band relies on the rhythm of Dieter, Gallia’s drummer. He started with a local marching band, and after that played for local band Clouds of Gravity. He took a break from drumming to focus on his studies, but recently picked up his drumsticks again and joined Gallia.
The technical side and general management falls on the shoulders of Joachim. His experienced ear and organisational skills make him indispensable for Gallia.
Gallia is a band bursting with ambition and love for music. The experience and passion of the band members has lead this band to move forward very quickly.
On the 20th of July they have launched their first EP called “Everflame”. It can be found on their website, CD baby, iTunes and Spotify.
Follow them on Youtube, Facebook or their website to stay updated on new songs or future performances.
Line-up: Janne Partanen – Vocals – Sami Lustig – Guitar – Simo Pesonen – Bass -Teemu Roth – Drums
New single by Hautajaisyö is a fast and aggressive song about depression and anxiety
Hautajaisyö released a new single Ennen kuolemaa (Before the death) today August 28th 2019 via Inverse Records.
It is time to step deeper in to darkness, deeper in to anxiety and deeper in to roots of depression. It is time to accept inevitable death and embrace it with both hands. It is time to let emptiness in and agree ”All of this is pointless, just killing time before death”.
Hautajaisyö (Funeral Night) is a quartet from Finland, that blends death metal and thrash metal in their music. Band has been active from 2014 and are working on their third album. New material is more heavier and uglier than ever before. ”Ennen Kuolemaa” is a good example what the new album will give you. It is a fast and aggressive song about depression and anxiety. They are the main themes of the upcoming album.
Band members: ● Ljubiša Đorđević – Vocals and Rhythm Guitars ● Miša Milovanović – Lead Guitars ● Nemanja Velicki – Drums ● Stevan Dinić – Bass
Serbian band Twisted Tales.release longplayer
This band from Serbia brings us thrash-/deathmetal. They already released a demo and a debut full-length and besides doing shows in their home country they also did some shows in Poland and Slovakia as support from a Russian band.
On September 20th 2019 the new, and second, longplayer from Serbian band Twisted Tales, called ‘Bringer Of Woe’, will be released and promoted worldwide.
By strange twist of fate, pun intended, Twisted Tales were formed on the auspicious 8th of December 2004 in a small town of Kuršumlija, Serbia. Four long time friends and lifelong metal fans decided they wanted to play their own music instead of rehashing others’ music time and time again.
Our initial sound was pretty much underground, more of Melodic Death metal style laden with Black Metal influences, in which we recorded our first demo Behind the Gates of Eternity.
Shortly after, due to life’s circumstances we went on hiatus, only to be rejoined in 2009 as a Thrash/Death metal band. Why shift in the sound? Why not! It’s the music we all grew up listening to, so it came organically.
After lots of gigging and beer drinking across Serbia, we went to studio and in 2012 we published our first album called “We Shall be Heard”. The album received mostly favorable reviews, and upon its release we continued touring around Serbia.
In 2014 we had our first experience playing abroad, touring Poland and Slovakia, together with Russian Death Metal band Tacit Fury.
Afterwards we started working on new songs for the follow-up. The album was out in Serbia on auspicious date of May the fourth (geek alert here) 2019, and the title is Bringer of Woe. And on September 20th 2019 we will release and promote it worldwide.
Different thing about this record is that we did it in our own studio, which we like to call the Twisted Studios, just for the hack of it, everything, from recording to mixing the whole thing, so we could as well be labeled a DIY band.
Bringer of Woe is somewhat an old school Thrash/Death Metal album comprised of 12 songs, with the duration of about one hour. Our intention was to create a more aggressive, raw, and live sounding album with lots of different motifs, varying from those more typical for the genre, to those of classic Heavy Metal. And of course, there was a lot of experimenting with awkward harmonies, exotic scales, peculiar rhythms and other stuff aimed at surprising the listener! Lyrically the album deals with personal matters like loss, anger, frustration, questioning the faith, addiction, and interpersonal relations.
Er is geen band die New York hardcore meer belichaamt dan Agnostic Front. De ‘The Godfathers Of the NYxHR ’ging anno 1980 van start in New York City, In 1992 ging Agnostic Front uit elkaar, om even een pauze te kunnen nemen, Vinnie Stigma ging vervolgens in de groep Madball spelen. Na enkele jaren kwam Agnostic Front terug bij elkaar, met de bezetting Mike Gallo – Bass
Craig Silverman – Guitar – Pokey – Drums – Vinnie Stigma – Guitar – Roger Miret – Vocals
Roger Miret heeft in 2002/2003 ook een zij-project gehad met The Disasters dat je zeker moet checken.
Anno 2019 de pioniers van het harde werk staan er nog even fris als in hun prille jaren, zanger Roger Miret en gitarist Vinnie Stigma, die ondanks hun zeer verschillende karakters en sinds 1982 bloedbroeders in hardcore maakte als nooit tevoren er een feestje van waarbij de tempartuur met min +20 graden in een snel tempo de hoogte in slamde.
De Baroeg stond even op springen waarbij de vijfkoppige hardcore dude’s nieuw en oud werk in een bomvolle zaal afvuurde. Het geluid zat dan ook weer lekker snor in het Rotterdamse Bargoeg waarbij Stigma het zelfs niet kon laten om even mee te gaan moshen, incl.gitaar ging hij als een wildzwijn mee tussen de zwetende meute mee lol trappen. Stigma is intussen 66 jaar maar blijkbaar is dit enkel een getal voor hem, gezien ouderdom blijkbaar geen inpak kent op zijn uithouding vermogen en levenswijze.
Stigma, Mike, Craig en Pokey maakte zelf tijd om een babbeltje en wat tijd om aangekochte merchandise te handtekeningen
Conclusie, zalige kerels , geweldig gig met veel energieke klassieker, meer moet dat niet zijn toch?

HRH Goth featuring HRH Industrial Unearths Its Dark Take by Fan Demand as Early Bird Prices & Discounts Roll for 6 days Only Without Booking Fees! Hail HRH!!
When our HRH Legions pushed for an HRH Chapter of Goth & Industrial music, we set our algorithms rolling for 18 months to identify what this dark theatre of music would produce & evolve into, for this all-new HRH brand experience.
Taking a subculture like Goth which has spawned from offshoots of the post-punk and darkwave genres and mixing it with the abrasive and aggressive fusions of rock & electronic music known as industrial – we can start to envisage the scope & direction of a cleverly programmed musical journey that takes in both sub-genres.
HRH, which is Europe’s undisputed leader in residential music experiences has dug deep, continued to plot & plan from the elite affinity it enjoys with its fan base and is now proud to launch a non-stop roller coaster of goth and industrial music mashed together over 2 destinations.
The deeper we went, the more we felt that this was an under-serviced market, with multiple acts not seeing the dark masses of fans within the UK shores.
That stops NOW!
The line up is sealed as are the dates which will operate Reading / Leeds style between 2 venues over the same weekend. Mark it well, the 12th & 13th September 2020, sees the HRH Goth featuring HRH Industrial experience hit London at the 02 Kentish Forum as well as the 02 Academy Sheffield simultaneously.
The line up has been monitored, voted and curated from over 189K fans worldwide and at last, after 2 years of research we are happy to stage Chapter 1, in a format that hopefully does us all proud.
So the very first line-up of HRH Goth Featuring HRH Industrial is a true statement of intent. Sporting triple headliners, HRH have listened to the HRH community and delivered – and then some…
Revered legends of gothic rock, Londoners Fields of the Nephilim are genuine pioneers of the genre – formed in 1984 they had indie chart success in the late ‘80s with tracks such as ‘Moonchild’ and ‘Psychonaut’. Barring a hiatus during the ‘90s, the band have been actively releasing new music and playing to a loyal fanbase ever since.
Check out their incredible track Psychonaut here…
Considered pioneers of the goth metal movement, Bradford’s My Dying Bride were part of the “Peaceville Three” together with Anathema and Paradise Lost – their pedigree is therefore undisputed. Since their inception in 1990, the band have released no fewer than 12 studio albums and bring their intense live show to HRH Goth at our twin venue event at London’s Kentish Town Forum and the O2 Academy in Sheffield.
Watch the stunning video for The Cry of Mankind here…
International industrial band KMFDM are said to be one of the first to fuse heavy metal riffs and electronica and take the result to the masses. Taking a highly political stance, KMFDM are sure to melt our faces at HRH Goth taking tracks from their 20 studio albums to date, and no doubt feature music from their upcoming album release “Paradise”.
To watch KMFDM’s killer track Amnesia follow this link…
If those legends of the genre weren’t enough, we are so pleased to announce Welsh wizard Jayce Lewis, post-punk dark-wavers from Brighton Grooving in Green, Sweden industrial metallers Rave the Reqviem, Portsmouth based electronic-punkers Seething Akira, industrial goth outfit Auger, gothic rockers Red Sun Revival, goth-electronica-punk-spacerock band The Webb, and new romantic industrial hybrids Massive Ego.
Completing the incredible line-up for September 2020 are metallers Sometime The Wolf, post-punk industrial St Lucifer, Londoners Drownd and London stoner-doom-goth merchants Cold in Berlin.
Er is geen band die New York hardcore meer belichaamt dan Agnostic Front. Op woensdag 21 augustus is de band te zien in Baroeg Rotterdam. Dit is de enige Nederlandse clubshow tijdens de Europese tournee.
Twee jaar geleden kwam de documentaire ‘The Godfathers Of Hardcore’ uit; een goudeerlijk portret van met name zanger Roger Miret en gitarist Vinnie Stigma, die ondanks hun zeer verschillende karakters sinds 1982 bloedbroeders in hardcore zijn. De film belandde volkomen terecht bovenaan de iTunes-lijst van muziekdocumentaires.
Na 40 jaar ervaring blijft Agnostic Front een aanvoerder van de wereldwijde scene, wat ze keer op keer aantonen met kolkende shows. De band was in 2013 en 2015 ook al in Baroeg te zien.
De voorprogramma’s worden verzocht door de Belgische band Mindwar en de Rotterdamse band The Obnoxious.

Bio. De Belgische band Doganov werd opgericht in 2010.
Om hun muziek te beschrijven, moet je denken dat Rammstein Praga Khan ontmoet. De band is er in geslaagd het industrieel, EBM, new wave, metal en rock te combineren in een dansbare sound met ballen.
Doganov noemt hun muziek dan ook ‘something dark to dance to‘’, wat ook de titel is van hun eerste EP was en uitgebracht werd in 2013. waarbij en meteen erna een single ‘History’ werd uitgebracht en wederom op goede feedback kon rekening in het zwaarder metal en in de Dark wave scene waardoor er verschillende headlining-shows uitvloeide met niemand minder dan Punish Yourself, Shaârgoth, Die Krupps en La Muerte om er maar enkele te noemen.
In 2015 bracht Doganov hun eerste volledige album ‘Conducting Chaos’ uit, dat werd gemixt door Dee-J Moens uit La Muerte en dat ook een coverversie bevat van de beruchte track ‘HeadHunter’ van Front 242, die ze ook al te graag live uitvoeren.
Doganov maakte remixes voor de Amerikaanse elektronische band I: Scintilla (Skin Tight en Mercy Screams), niet alleen werft Doganov bekentijd , maar ook in het Belgische electrorock circuit leverde reeds werk voor Goose (What You Need remixes) en op de b-side remixes van onze franstalige La Muerte’s Headhunter vinyl album (Whack This Guy).Hun nieuwste single ‘Twincest’ werd uitgebracht in 2018 en klinkt opwindend, punchy, strak en nog steeds met de nodige en pakkende melodie erachter.

Burn it all Down: THE AGONIST unleash brand new video! Orphans coming September 20th!
September 20th 2019 will see Canada’s finest extreme metal export, The Agonist, release their brand new album, Orphans, with Rodeostar Records. More extreme, more melodic, more exciting and larger than life sounds: On their sixth studio record, The Agonist are unleashing a true monster feeding on melodic death metal and almost rocking moments. In between beautifully anthemic metal sound walls, pounding grooves and fierce riffs, charismatic front vocalist Vicky Psarakis showcases her impressive range that covers everything from rock diva all the way to sick death metal growls. The result is a flickering, iridescent and varied masterpiece nestled in between sheer brutality and melodic frailty – simply incomparable!
But let the music speak for itself, as today The Agonist have unleashed a second track from their upcoming Orphans! Watch the new video for Burn it all Down HERE!
Says Chris Kells, The Agonist bassist and video director: “When the band had first decided to make “Burn it all Down” a music video, naturally I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to make a high intensity video that portrayed Vicky’s anger in delivering the lyrics, all while a blazing inferno is happening behind the band. It wasn’t an easy task to make happen! I thought i had it all figured out with my video team but none of us had ever done a fire shoot before. Normally we take our time in setting up the lighting and over analyzing the shots to make sure what works best in the moment. There was absolutely no time for that. Once we lit the fire It was a a race right till the end to make sure we kept it blazing and high all while trying to get every one of our scheduled shots in. In the end everything worked out, we didn’t burn down a field, nobody got hurt, just singed, and we all hustled to make sure we got everything done that was needed.“
