SCORDATURA (Death Metal – Scotland)
Glasgow legends Scordatura hit Cambridge for the very first time! Known as one of the biggest bands in the British underground death metal scene, they have released their second album ‘Self Created Abyss’ last year and supported Cryptopsy, Aborted, Blood Red Throne and Nile amongst others. Utterly brutal and heavy, guaranteed to pound your skull to dust!
FORGOTTEN REMAINS (Thrash/Death Metal)
Bringing their style of Scandinavian death metal merged with old school trash, Forgotten Remains also hit Cambridge for the first time! For those that like it fast trash with a harder edge!
Probably the best (or worst) thing to ever come out of Stevenage, Skullfucked are back in Cambridge for round 2! 100% Brutal deathgrind!
ANNUNCIATION (Death Metal)
Influenced by the likes of Death, Carcass and Cattle Decapitation, Londoners Annunciation deliver quality death metal with a penchant for sick riffs.
MAGOGMAGORE (Slam Death Metal)
Heavy slam merchants from that London!
Belligerent Promotions alongside Cambridge RockSoc present in no particular order:
3-piece instrumental outfit from Cambridge! I put these guys on a few months back and they floored everyone, so it’s only proper we get them back!
Our first Cambridge-based band! Featuring members of bands I’m sure some of you will recognise – Scar City and AR – Parallax brings forth a fresh new sound, sure to please all metal fans.
The second Cambridge band! Formed in 2017, these guys combine elements from metalcore, progressive and melodic death metal.
Heavy hitting straight talking hardcore/metal from St. Neots!
More Cambridge metal! Named after the Ancient Mesopotamian Empire, I can’t put a label on these fellas, but major influences include Slipknot, Tool, Gojira and Lamb of God.
“The pig has several connotations. Most civilisations and cultures have seen them as arbiters of fertility, virility, strength and abundance. The Buddhist tradition swings the other way, seeing the pig as ignorant, illusory, greedy, lustful. Other religions see them as unclean. Then there is the Celtic fable of Manannan, who owned a herd of pigs that never dwindled – they were forever replenishing their numbers.
I could go on. The point is that the pig is multifaceted and almost indefinable – a shifting construct for people to hang their hopes and fears on. It is also a heave bag of flesh that wallows in mud and s*** all day until taken to the slaughterhouse. A myriad of strong, indelible, contradictory images, fit for a Newcastle heavy psych band that can’t reign in their swine (although they have reined in members of likeminded noisemongers Khunnt and Blown Out).” The Quietus
