Doom metal trio from Merseyside. Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense.

A rock metal band from Sweden who formed in 1998. Dozer have progressed beyond their early influences and created a style of their own incorporating modern elements into their classic heavy rock sound. A sound that always has been intensly heavy but yet also strongly song and melody driven by the distinctive vocals of singer Fredrik Nordin.

London quartet, Gurt, take the blues and groove of 70s rock and drag it backwards through the swamps of Louisiana. The drums are thunderous, the vocals demonic and the guitars down-tuned, down-tempo and down-right sexy. 'This is not doom, this is not sludge, this is Gurt'.

South Wales' 3-piece Prosperina capably fuse musical complexity with an instinctive hooky lyrical melody; referencing both the classic rock of the past (Pink Floyd, Kyuss, Soundgarden) and the present (Tool, Isis, Mastodon). Their exhilarating vocals and catchy hooks provide an anthemic appeal that fuels the listener with the inability to contain movement.

To hear Truckfighters’ music is to hear the sounds of the desert. Think wide open spaces, grand open grooves and dust-caked metal riffs. This is a band bred on the California badlands, except... they’re from Sweden! Truckfighters have honed and expanded their sound, moving from out-and-out riffing to more melodic crafted songwriting, while still maintaining that addictive fuzzed-out sound that defines them.
