The Obsessed / Gonga / Alunah / Torpor And More Bristol

Snuff Lane loudly bring you: The Obsessed Official // Gonga (official) // Alunah // TORPOR // Srya // The Road Saturday 20th July Exchange, Bristol Doors: 16:30 Tickets: 16.00 adv. // 17.50 otd. -- Bristol Ticket Shop: -- Headfirst: Maryland doom-riff legends THE OBSESSED return with a renewed energy, purpose and heavier sound than ever! These doom legends will be taking over the Exchange to perform tracks from their latest album \'Sacred\', alongside an array of timeless classics. Humongous supporting line-up boasting: local instrumental legends GONGA, Birmingham based doomsters ALUNAH, hench hardcore sludgy bleakness of TORPOR, atmospheric descending chug of SURYA and the 2-man crushing oppressiveness of THE ROAD. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Obsessed Official Formed in the late 1970s in Potomac, Maryland by legendary guitarist Scott Wino Wenrich (Saint Vitus/Spirit Caravan). The band spawned in the realm of musicians/artists such as Black Sabbath, Frank Zappa, The Dictators and The Stooges. The earliest lineup consisted of Wino, Mark Laue (Bass), John Reese (Guitars) and Dave Flood (Drums). In 1983, Wino took over vocals duties and the band became a 3-piece to record the Sodden Jackal EP. The band broke up in the late 80s after Wino moved to California to join Saint Vitus. At that time, a German label, Hellhound Records, and the booking agency that had signed Saint Vitus, released The Obsessed, originally recorded in 1985, prompting Wino to reform THE OBSESSED. After multiple lineup changes the band signed to Columbia Records in 1994 to release their third and final album, The Church Within. Despite highly acclaimed reviews, THE OBSESSED would breakup once again following the release, seeing Wino forming Spirit Caravan (Then Shine) and other projects. In September 2011, THE OBSESSED returned to the stage at Roadburn Festival with The Church Within legendary lineup (featuring Wino, Greg Rogers and Guy Pinhas). The band played a few more reunion shows over the next couple years at Hellfest Open Air 2012 and Maryland Deathfest XI in May 2013 with Reid Raley (Bass). Wino announced the full-time return of THE OBSESSED in March 2016 and the bands official signing to Relapse Records to record the follow up to The Church Within. The new lineup originally consisted of Spirit Caravan bassist Dave Sherman and Winos longtime friend and former road crew member Brian Costantino (Drums). On October 31, 2016, Wino announced that The Obsessed will test the waters for the remainder of 2016 by adding Bruce Falkinburg on Bass and Seraphim on Guitar, making this the first time in over 35 years that the Obsessed have been a four piece band. Now in 2017, THE OBSESSED will unleash Sacred, the bands first studio album in in over 20 years. With renewed energy and purpose, THE OBSESSED sounds heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, the band doubles down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across 12 tracks of eternal doom. Rounded out by Winos lyrical honesty and iconic throaty vocals, Sacred is an album that further pushes THE OBSESSED into the annals of heavy metal history, well worth the two-plus decade wait. The band will perform once again as three piece featuring Wino, Reid Raley and Brian Costantino. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gonga (official) Clawing their way out of the dank blackness of their riff research laboratory and hungry for the flesh of new twisted listeners, Gonga bring forth a new offering a Concrescence. In the five years since their last outpouring of un-anchored HeavyRock, Transmigration, Gonga managed to lose/fire/upset every bass player in the region. Brothers Thomas (dramatic battery) and George (riff philosophy) having survived war and mental abuse from the outside world found a new phenomenon walking the golden triangle right in front of their (third) eyes; a specialist in detail you could say a time-stretch professional. And so, Latch self-sacrificed himself to the group before he even joined; the perfect combination of Geezer Butler and Cliff Burton muttering arcane wisdom. A trinity of Earth forms was instantly created; bull, goat, ram. The strength of the triangle allowed the 3 to set about HeavyRock construction. Without singer the aim became to create aural landscapes for band and listener to use as a launchpad for remote viewing, for mental and spiritual enlightenment and for emotional therapy. One could refer to it as instrumental HeavyRock for the philosophical connoisseur. Riff research and late night experimentations led the trio into unexplored territories of voiceless riff/rhythm. Years passed and the brew grew strong, as did the urge to commit the aural paintings to vinyl. Six tracks, two sides - Concrescence, a region of complexity in comparison to its surroundings. Gonga hail from Bristol, UK. This is their third album. They have toured with Mondo Generator and High On Fire and have performed at Glastonbury and Download festivals as well as recording a Maida Vale session for Zane Lowe (Radio 1). Their favourite colour is black or green or something probably. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Alunah Birmingham, U.K. based doom band ALUNAH have returned with their new EP, AMBER & GOLD. The four-track EP features the exciting & powerful delivery of new vocalist Sin Greenaway & shows ALUNAH progressing & expanding their music once more, whilst enhancing the ethereal magic of their earlier work. Forming in 2006, ALUNAH have had an impressive career to date with four previous albums and numerous UK & EU tours. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TORPOR "When music is true and honest, you can just feel it comes from the depths of a bands soul. Nothing is contrived or factitious; the music speaks for itself with pure vitality no matter what the genre. A good amount of pop music is complete garbage, just bland uninspired money making machines that couldnt care less about musicianship or the art itself. On the other hand, when you hear a band or artist truly give itself to their craft, it undeniably moves you. To my delight, TORPOR is one of those bands in which the music tears out emotions from the gut with some of the heaviest riffs on the planet." - Rock n Reel Reviews. "The songs on From Nothing Comes Everything, apart from sharing a common sensibility, have an unremitting undertone of resistance, this abeyant sense of wanting to break-out. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Wayne Adams, the album has a brash, weighted, industrial sound with enough muddiness thrown in to lend the music that tension. If this record is anything to go by, Torpor is a name that youre going to hear more of in the coming years. This stuff is heavy" - Echoes & Dust. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Srya Surya is a four piece experimental sludge/doom metal band from London. "Instrumental post metal / doom band SURYA live a kind of hybrid life. On one hand they experiment with sonic structures to show us what post metal is truly capable of, on the other hand theyre deeply involved in conceiving and helping spark passionate thoughts about global environmental change. Its literally thriving and exceptionally inspiring where these two spheres intersect" - "Groaning under the weight of stratospheric chords, guitars entwine through a slowly descending chug. Tom heavy drums keep a meditative pass, with lumbering fuzzed-out bass conjuring shades of Shrinebuilder. Waves of reverb meld into echoing climbs, cast aside by a sudden burst of blackened blast beats and tremolo. For the open minded, Surya cover incredibly rich musical topography." - --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Road Two noisy Brits exploring their favourite heavy genres with as much enthusiasm as possible. The crushing oppressiveness of the British motorway experience condensed into a two-man journey through heavy music.

The Korgis At The Globe | Cardiff

The Korgis are Koming to Kardiff!! All of our friends have been screaming at us - where is the Cardiff gig?!!... so this is like a homecoming for us, as so many of the band are from South Wales. Here is a brief reminder of who we are and what we do! The Korgis are a British pop band known for the hit singles \'Everybody\'s Got To Learn Sometime\', \'If I Had You,\' \'Dumb Waiters,\' \'If It\'s Alright With You Baby\' and many more. They are now led by singer/bassist James Warren (also a former member of 1970s cult prog-rock band Stackridge), and include vocalist John Baker and guitarist Al Steele from the 1990s Korgistouring band. Keyboardist Glenn Tommey and powerhouse drummer Paul Smith make up the rhythm section and \'Born To Win\' provide brilliant backing vocals and bring a vibrant energy to the show. James and the band have worked hard at creating a performance that is both musically and visually exciting. Going back to the very first Stackridge song ever released, through all the Korgis hits and favourites plus excellent new material, the 2019 show has elicited comments such as \'flawless musicianship\' and \'breathtaking musicality\'. A treat not to be missed..
