THE OUTCASTS

THE OUTCASTS

visit THE OUTCASTS on facebook THE OUTCASTS Martin Cowan and Colin Getgood (better known as Getty) on guitar, Colin Cowan on drums and Greg Cowan on bass and vocals formed in Belfast in January of 1977 and played their debut gig in August of the same year. Due to a severe lack of venues in Belfast for punk bands, The Outcasts were forced to hire nightclubs to use for private parties, and then playing before the management knew what was happening. Dubbed ‚The band you love to hate‘ by the local press due to their bad boy image and loutish behaviour, the band began to attract their own local following and even managed to make the front page of local news paper the News Letter in January 1978 when their gig at the Pound was attended by a journalist keen to report on the new youth movement emerging in Belfast.

ARSIS

ARSIS

visit ARSIS on facebook visit ARSIS’s website ARSIS ARSIS shines as a standout in the technical, melodic death metal genre. The American, Virginia Beach-based quartet derived its name from the musical term „arsis and thesis“, in which „arsis“ refers to the unaccented part of a measure. The name’s origin comes as no surprise, considering co-founder’s James Malone’s classical education in music (James‘ a skilled violinist and a composition major), which in turn ads a whole new layer to the way in which ARSIS sounds. And the sound is powerful. ARSIS makes death metal that is righteously tinged with black & thrash influences, but is completely dedicated to expanding the reaches of melodicism and technicality in the genre. „Visitant“, the band’s sixth studio album, offers a glimpse at a band in its peak form; the same band which recorded 2013’s, Billboard-charting „Unwelcome“, featuring The Black Dahlia Murder guitarist Brandon Ellis.

LUCIFERS CHILD

LUCIFERS CHILD

visit LUCIFERS CHILD on facebook visit LUCIFERS CHILD’s website LUCIFERS CHILDGreek black metal band featuring members of Rotting Christ, Nightfall and Chaostar! LUCIFER’S CHILD originates from Athens. Its music is a bridge to the world of atmospheric black metal, and a vessel for spiritual self-expression through lyrics. The goal of unifying these two elements gleamed clearly in the eyes of George Emmanuel, a prolific guitarist primarily known for his work as part of Rotting Christ (and a former guitarist of Chaostar), when he formed the band together with bassist Stathis Ridis (a member of another long-running Hellenic metal unit, Nightfall) in 2013. Born from a partnership between two talented musicians, the duo quickly expanded to take in vocalist Marios Dupont (Karma Violens) and drummer Nick Vell (Chaostar), and delivered their debut album, „The Wiccan“, in 2015. Encouraged by the album’s keen reception, followed by several festival appearences (incl. Inferno Festival, Blastfest and Incineration Festival), LUCIFER’S CHILD returns in a darker, more extreme shade, passionate in outperforming its bold debut.

COPIA

COPIA

visit COPIA on facebook visit COPIA’s website COPIA When you think of COPIA, you’re instantly brought back to that time some Australian guys showed you their band at a festival or on the side of the road. And if you haven’t yet seen them live, you’re missing out on one of the best up and coming Australian bands in the scene. EPOCH, their 2017 released album, features crushing guitar riffs, poly-rhythmic/technical percussion, intuitive bass grooves and gritty, hooking vocals – all rolled together in a modern, yet somewhat reminiscently old school method of artistic finesse – helped by studio engineers Chris Blancato and Will Putney. Sharing the stage with the likes of ‚Northlane‘ in Russia, independently booking headline tours across Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland as well as their name being on prestigious festivals such as Euroblast, MetalDays, Rockspektakel and Dong Open Air, it wasn’t long before the COPIA boys became a word of mouth hit in the European metal scene with fans in every pocket of the EU. Back in Australia, gaining experience by headlining tours through major cities, as well as playing alongside ‚Dream On, Dreamer‘, saw COPIA develop a charismatic reputation on and off stage through a combination of their own youthful energy & unique business minded approaches.

It also fuels their self-titled debut now reissued on minus HEAD Records. Since bursting to life in 2006, the group has toured with everybody from In This Moment and Hollywood Undead to Motionless In White and 36 Crazyfists, carving out a fervent diehard fan base in the process.   See ALL HAIL THE YETI live here: DATECITYVENUECOUNTRYSUPPORTSTICKETS 25.10.2018PordenoneRock TownITAALL HAIL THE YETIClick want to book a show?

NEW BAND SVETLANAS

NEW BAND SVETLANAS

We like to announce that SVETLANAS have joined the MAD-family. SVETLANAS have often been called „The Most Dangerous Band in the World” thanks to their super intense live performances at such international festivals as Vans Warped Tour (USA), South by Southwest (USA), Punk Rock Bowling (USA), Rebellion Festival (UK) Extreme Fest (FR) and more. While maintaining a 100% DIY attitude, the band has earned praise and respect from such punk and rock heavy hitters like Gene Simmons („Their music will be listened to by 40 millions of Americans.“), Jello Biafra („Olga has quite an unusual voice, kind of like an angry cornered mongoose.“) and The Adolescents, who they partnered with on a split release titled „Hot War“. In 2015 the band teamed up with Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves for a 7″ split and an European tour that captured the attention of bass player Nick Oliveri (Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Mondo Generator, The Dwarves) who officially joined the lineup during the recording sessions in 2016. After a full month residency at the legendary Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, SVETLANAS put out their brand new album „This is Moscow Not LA“ , which was recorded at Josh Homme’s Pink Duck Studios.  ...
