The Shipping Report
The Shipping Report is an experimental musical project designed to explore the concepts of isolation and loneliness. Musically it is rooted in progressive rock and doom metal. In terms of mood, it's inspired by growing up in a seaside town without a future.
Avant-Garde Post Black Metal
London UK, Oslo Norway, Nova Scotia Canada
Ebonillumini is an avant-garde black metal band with members from across the globe. Headquartered in London UK, the band weave tales of world travel and deliver mystical oration and musical visions. They have just released their second full length album on Wicker Man Records - Arktos.
Depressive Suicidal Black Metal
Haunting melodies and depressive atmosphere clout like fog by Sykelig Englen's black metal ritual. The band hail from the old cobbled streets of Norwich. The band are getting ready to release their debut album this December.
Bringing a black metal assault so severe it will make your legs weak, S.F.I's perverse sound is relentless. Hailing from the same town as William Shakespeare, the band's penchant for raw sexual content would leave the ancient poet red in the face.
Leeds / London, UK
<Redacted> began as a joke Hypocrisy ripoff band but quickly transformed into a serious project. The band still takes inspiration from Hypocrisy and cues from the X-Files, but they also deliver a two pronged vocal assault, riffs, and rage. The band's debut EP Alien Nation has received high praise and the band are working on their full length followup.
Industrial Black Metal
Wytchfilth bring a nihilistic black metal assault combined with concussive industrial drums and sounds. The band has been active for some time and has a huge library of demos and EPs. They have been studio only for years, but will begin playing live in 2015.
Neofolk / Blackened Death Metal
Formed in Nova Scotia Canada, now based in London UK
Carnivorous Forest is a band that has two faces - One side is brutal blackened death metal and one is sorrowful neofolk. The band is gearing up for their first full length album after their successful Genital Mutilation in the Name of God EP from 2013. The band currently operates live on an acoustic only basis.
Edmonton's Idolatry have only been operating for a year or so, but they have already made waves through the black metal community. With only an EP and a split in their arsenal, the band is hard at work scribing the texts for their debut full length ceremony.
