LIVE REVIEW by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Brighton’s annual dedicated metal festival Mammothfest makes a bigger impact each year and this year’s event was no exception, especially as they impressively managed to bag 3 UK exclusive headliners with Rotting Christ, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Amenra.

Since its return in 2014 Mammothfest has always mustered up a formidable line-up, comprised of heavyweight acts such as Textures, Venom Inc, Sylosis, Entombed, Martyr Defiled and more in the past, as well as always showcasing the best and upcoming talent, they even have a whole stage devoted to this, named the Rikstock stage, after Mammothfest director Steve Dickson lost his close friend and business partner, Rik Mosquero to brain cancer, he went on to name the stage in his honour and highlight the emerging artists, Rik himself was in local band Hole In The Sky who have frequently played the festival, including this year’s event. Along with the bigger calibre acts they bring in each year, the festival has successfully managed to upscale its venue as its new current home is The Arch located on the seafront and is a perfect central spot in Brighton, whereas previously the festival has hosted at different and smaller venues across a weekend, highlighting again the growth and expansion of this massive metal event.

REVIEW: Vermilia – “Vedestä Vieraantunut” (Single)


unnamed (9).png

Review by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Vermilia is a female artist from Finland who has just unveiled her first self-released single “Vedestä Vieraantunut”. She has created a unique Scandinavian pagan metal sound with impressive and pleasant vocal harmonies to create a nice balance of dark and light.

The song features incredibly beautiful melodic vocals sung in her native Finnish language, which are enthralling and with fierce growls, in contrast, it gives it a great mix of metal and harmony. It possesses a hard groove through the instrumentation and is highly atmospheric, intriguing and delightfully dark. This is captivating and soaring, leaving you very hungry to hear more depthful pagan inspired sounds, so hopefully, a debut offering is on the way soon.

SCORE: 5/5 

“Vedestä Vieraantunut” was officially released on November 13th as a self-released single and is available for sale/streaming through all major platforms.

You can watch the video for the single below:
