On their new longplayer, the hottest contenders for the prog metal throne traverse a variety of musical extremes, such as epic orchestral passages followed by hard guitar riffs, leaving nothing to be desired.
*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors8 PM ShowECSTATIC VISION (ELUSIVE MOJO RECORD RELEASE SHOW)Elusive Mojo finds Ecstatic Vision firing on all cylinders with this unhinged, raw and dangerous new album. The band continues down their unique warpath mixing heavy psych rock, Detroit rock, proto-punk, and world music. The album contains caveman grooves that would rattle the remaining teeth out of the Asheton brother’s skulls, scorching saxophones that would make Nik Turner feel high on a potent mix of speed and Viagra, and basslines hot enough to melt down the Lemmy statue. Elusive Mojo was recorded live to 2” tape in their beloved hometown of Philadelphia by Joe Boldizar (Sonic Praise) with Bob Pantella (Monster Magnet), and mastered by their old drinking buddy Tim Green (Melvins). What emerged was a burly, timeless and unique sounding record that is hard to tell if it was recorded in 1971 or 2022.https://heavypsychsoundsrecords.bandcamp.com/album/ecstatic-vision-elusive-mojoHEAVY TEMPLEA trio of psychedelic doom metal deviants, here to take you on a wild ride. https://heavytemple.bandcamp.com/FLATWAVES A dusty acid trip in the desert, Flatwaves combines fuzzed out heavy instrumentals with reverb drenched vocals, culminating in a cauldron of sounds that is part garage rock, part shoegaze, part surf goth, and part psych that feels like surfing through existential dread.https://flatwaves.bandcamp.com/

Tank’s penchant for all-out riffing and her ear for the best drummer for the situation make one thing very clear: Roadkiller are not just another punk or metal band. Roadkiller is a group that represents the past, present and future of heavy, fast music.https://roadkiller.bandcamp.com/BRAZEN HELLhttps://brazenhellphl.bandcamp.com/SKULLOVICH (debut show)Dungeon Metal forged by cryptic thaumaturgy.Skullovich explores the lore of epic and dark fantasy whilst retaining an atmosphere that seeps into the mind, envisioning the clashing of blades and casting of deadly spells. Hymns telling tales of darkness and violence with hidden secrets that explore perceptions of morality. An ode to all who worship steel. https://skullovich.bandcamp.com/
*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors7:30 PM ShowNETHERLANDSFormed by Timo Ellis in 2010 (now with drummer David Keith and synthbassist Kelsey Warren) NETHERLANDS’ magic lies in the contrasts it sets up: falsetto vocals, odd time signatures, and haunting hooks transform their monstrous power into weirdly delicious and dynamic songs. The overall effect is not unlike that of Swans and Dio playing simultaneously, atop an actual mountain of MDMA. https://www.netherlandsband.com/LOTUS THRONESAn exploration of the lush textures of melancholy and depression from Heath Rave of Wolvhammer. https://lotusthrones.bandcamp.com/GUHTS“Sludgy post-metal that simulates the eerie sensation of an evil crone whispering last rites before delivering an icy kiss of death.”- Decibel Magazine https://guhts.bandcamp.com/
*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors8 PM ShowTRAGEDY: AN ALL-METAL TRIBUTE TO THE BEE GEES AND BEYONDBorn out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong – a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows, storming across the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. On subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums, The Joy of Sex, Tragedy Goes to the Movies and #1 Christmas Holiday Party Mix, Tragedy spread their glittered wings to take on non-Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams. In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You’re the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy’s video for Stayin’ Alive broke the internet once again. In 2019 two albums hit the NACC Heavy Top 30 charts. In 2021, Tragedy signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. The first album with Napalm is Disco Balls to the Wall – release date July 30, 2021. It has hit the top 10 in Hard Rock/Metal charts in Europe and the US. Tragedy takes disco, soft-rock and pop classics, and completely reimagines them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal. Their music is sure to get your head bangin’, your booty shakin’ – and put a smile on your face and your fist in the air.
*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors7:30 PM ShowMÖRK GRYNINGMÖRK GRYNING was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 1993 by Goth Gorgon and Draakh Kimera. The debut album “Tusen År Har Gått” (1995), was recorded at Unisound Studios, produced by Dan Swanö and released by No Fashion. The group returned to action in November 1996, working at Sunlight Studios together with Tomas Skogsberg and DISMEMBER’s Fred Estby to craft the “Return Fire” record. This album would include their interpretation of SLAYER’s “Necrophiliac”. Returning in 2000 along with guitarist Avathar, a scene veteran, the band wrote “Maelstrom Chaos” at the legendary Grieghallen Studios Bergen, Norway. In January of 2004, MÖRK GRYNING cut their rendition of “Neverwhere” for an AT THE GATES tribute album “Slaughterous Souls – A Tribute To At The Gates” released through Drowned Scream Records. Ever since the debut album, “Tusen år har gått…”, MÖRK GRYNING have refused to follow in the footsteps of others and have walked their own paths – something which is made very clear on the 2003 release “Pieces of Primal Expressionism”, an experimental and heavy progressive release recorded at Dug out, produced by Daniel Bergstrand. After a couple of years of touring and festival performances, the band was put on-hold. Returning to the scene again in 2017, the band performed an exclusive live show in Stockholm playing all the songs from the debut album and some other songs from the back catalogue. This ended in releasing the 4-song live record called “Live at Kraken”.ARSANTIQVAArsantiqva is an extreme metal act hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Officially formed in September of 2009 by Diktator (Guitar/Keys), Haeor (Bass/Drums), and Abraxas (Vocals).

LIMBSLIMBS is a post-hardcore outfit hailing from Tampa Bay, Florida. Originally formed in 2013 under a different moniker, LIMBS released their debut album entitled ‘Dead Ends’ before undergoing a fairly drastic lineup change. After taking eight months for reformation, LIMBS regrouped and released their sophomore release ‘Admission,’ in late 2014, to copious amounts of positive feedback. In 2015, LIMBS toured the DIY circuits relentlessly, and released two independent singles. In March of 2015, LIMBS released the first single entitled ‘Poison,’ again receiving immense positive feedback. Two months later, in May of 2015, LIMBS released their second single of the year entitled ‘Ruin.’ In 2016, LIMBS ventured on a southeastern tour with Saosin and also performed at the South By So What?! Music Festival in Dallas, Texas. The band recorded a 3 song EP entitled ‘SLEEP,’ mixed by Beau Burchell (Saosin) and mastered by Mike Kalajian – released in April of 2017. In 2017, LIMBS joined up with Royal Division Entertainment for management, and soon set out to support Envy on the Coast on select dates in the southeast. Following that, the band trekked across the country supporting Hail The Sun on their nationwide headliner. In September of 2017, LIMBS announced their signing to Equal Vision Records. Their recently released EP, ‘SLEEP,’ has now been re-recorded under the production of Tim McTague (Underoath), remixed by Beau Burchell, and will be re-released by Equal Vision Records featuring new songs not heard on the previous rendition. As the latter half of 2017 approaches a new year, the band has no plans to slow down; a fall tour in support of their re-released EP, and winter recording plans are already set. Catch LIMBS’ energetic performance at one of their upcoming shows, and make sure to stay connected with the band through all social media outlets!
