To nye band klare for BEYOND THE GATES 2014
One of the releases that garnered the most attention in 2013 was Irkallian Oracle’s "Grave Ekstasis" tape, now unleashed on vinyl and compact disc through Nuclear War Now! The esoteric Death Metal played by Irkallian Oracle superbly reflects the interwoven traditions of Death and Black metal with the arcane ritualistic nature of the latter subsumed within the physically oppressive structure of the former. The band went from an unknown act for the underground fanatics to a Black Metal sensation over night, these days playing all the major festivals within the Black/Death Metal genre around the world, and well deserved doing so. And this is where Beyond The Gates comes into play, presenting their first ever gig in Norway! August can’t come fast enough!
//JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES//
Finland might not be considered the top country when it comes to metal, but as one of many bands on the fabolous Svart Records roster, Jess and the Ancient Ones delivers top class psychedelic heavy rock with influences from the 70’s and 80’s hard rock and metal scene. Fronted by the magnificent Jess, we are ready to be mesmerized and taken on a trip that’s not soon to be forgotten, so prepare for an astral sabbat!
