All day death metal takeover Easter Sunday with finest extreme acts including Vader and Immolation!

 

Mammothfest have been very busy already in 2017! Rotting Christ are set to headline the main Mammothfest festival later this year as a UK festival exclusive. On top of that, two “Mammothfest Presents” shows have already been announced, with Feed The Rhino and Brutality Will Prevail headlining two separate events.

Now in this latest addition to the Mammothfest presents shows they have teamed up with Jackhammer Promotions, to bring what could be their biggest show yet, featuring some of the best death metal acts such as headliners, Polish death metal pioneers Vader, who impressively released their eleventh album last year named, ‘The Empire’ with main support from New York extreme act, Immolation who have just dropped their new career defining album, ‘Atonement’.

Other acts joining them on the main stage for this mighty line-up are: Monument of Misanthropy, Krysthla, Divine Chaos, Seprevation, Hades Lab, Mutually Assured Destruction and Enslavement.

On the second stage, acts include Brighton Tech metallers, Hole In The Sky who played Mammothfest in 2014 alongside headliners Savage Messiah and Martyr Defiled. The band sadly lost their singer Rik to cancer but continue to grow despite this. Mammothfest director was friends with Rik and named one of the festival stages after him in tribute, being the Rikstock stage for emerging artists.

Please welcome German Death metallers DAWN OF DISEASE with an exclusive Austrian festival show in 2017!

unnamed4444

DAWN OF DISEASE’s sound is determined by abrasiveness and melody, where subliminal harmonies and killer riffs are accompanied by rapid blastbeats and pounding doublebass. Tomasz’s vocals are a cross between dark growlings, aggressive screams and in-your-face shouting. Although a big number of typical Swedish elements can still be found, DAWN OF DISEASE are more than able to add an their own style beyond these bounds and are ready to enthrall Metal On The Hill Festival!

TOGETHERFEST- YOUTH OF TODAY / AMERICAN NIGHTMARE / TRASH TALK & MORE


TogetherFest comes to London’s Electric Ballroom next Saturday the 25th of February 2017.

TogetherFest featuring YOUTH OF TODAY, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, TRASH TALK, VANISHING LIFE and WOLF DOWN will be touring around Europe before coming to London.

unnamed-98

Tickets on sale now at See Tickets: http://www.seetickets.com/event/togetherfest-youth-of-today-american-nightmare/electric-ballroom/1042178 

First up is Germany’s own WOLF DOWN opening the night with the fervor and respite of their recent Incite & Conspire LP. Known to hate fascists and welcome refugees, Wolf Down bring the political heat to the TogetherFest mix, a one, two, punch with LOVE tatted on the right fist and HATE on the left.

Next up VANISHING LIFE throw down like Jaques Lacan vs. Greg Ginn. On the strength of their recent debut LP Surveillance TogetherFest will be VL’s first appearance outside of the US. Featuring members of …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Bad Religion, Rise Against and Quicksand, VL is a true amalgam of assassins urging you to enjoy yourself because it’s later than you think… Only then L.A.’s TRASH TALK take the stage like a bathtub full of meth spilling into your unsuspecting eyes and ears. T.T. the band are an extension of their art collective located in one of the few remaining industrial corners of Los Angeles. Trash Talk have been touring actively since 2005 and have taken their unique strain of HC from house shows to festivals around the world culminating in their fourth full length No Peace released on Odd Future Records, crowd participation is mandatory.

This year it’s a unique honor for TogetherFest to present one of the most influential and innovative hardcore bands of the last two decades, Boston’s own AMERICAN NIGHTMARE. A.N. brought a much needed emotional depth and dark imagery to a 90’s hardcore scene that still looks and sounds like the future. A.N. pointed the way for countless bands, Glassjaw, My Chemical Romance and New Found Glory to name a few that site AN as a major influence. TogetherFest will be A.N.s first European tour since reforming in 2011.

And to close the night is the legendary Youth Of Today in classic 88’ line up, featuring Ray Of Today, Porcel on guitar, Sam Seigler on drums and yours truly on bass. Back in 89’ Y.O.T. was the first New York Hardcore band to tour Europe, seven months later the Berlin Wall fell. Coincidence? Perhaps, but after a handful of raved about Festival appearances, TogetherFest marks Y.O.T.’s triumphant return to tour form. Wake up Pegida, U.K.I.P and Donald Trump, at TogetherFest it’s time to “BREAK DOWN THE WALLS!!!”.

SATURDAY 25TH FEBRUARY, ELECTRIC BALLROOM , LONDON

Brutality Will Prevail To Headline Mammothfest Event with Raging Speedhorn, Giants & More For Bleed Again’s Album Launch!


Upcoming Act Bleed Again Are Getting A Hell Of An Album Launch Show With Brutality To Prevail, Raging Speedhorn and More In Metal All Dayer!

Commonly Mammothfest is known for bringing some of the best emerging metal acts to Brighton, but now it’s venturing into the world of hardcore bringing genre favourites Brutality Will Prevail and UK metal icons Raging Speedhorn on the south coast along with some of the best emerging acts in heavy music…

brutalitywillprevail

Brutality Will Prevail, (commonly known as BWP) will headline this special event. They are about to release their highly anticipated fifth studio album, “In Dark Places”. This will be the band’s second album to feature Louis Gauthier on vocals, formally of popular Brighton-based hardcore act Breaking Point. The Welsh outfit is known for producing a unique style of sludge-hardcore, adding it the energy and aggression of metalcore. More importantly BWP deliver some of the best pit-starting grooves in UK hardcore. Expect a high- octane show.
As main support is Raging Speedhorn who have been going since 1998. They have a lot of experience under their belt as the band quickly established itself as a major presence within the UK’s metal scene early on into their careers. The band’s first single, “Thumper” was released in 2000, which received significant critical acclaim, then in 2001, Raging Speedhorn charted in the UK Singles Chart with “The Gush”.

bleed-again
The band of the day Worthing metallers Bleed Again who will be launching album release at the show, have become Mammothfest favourites in recent years. So, it’s no surprise they are helping to celebrate the release of the band’s album, “Momentum” on the 1st of May. At last year’s Mammothfest Bleed Again delivered one of the most memorable sets of the weekend, in which they filmed their latest song and video for the melodic “Through The Eyes” and earned them one of the best crowd reactions of the whole festival. Having already supported the likes of Soil, Darkest Hour and Devil Sold His Soul with their reputation for blistering live sets, you don’t want to miss them.
Other acts gracing the stage at this event include Giants, High Hopes, Death Remains, Up River and More! See poster and website for full details.
