FB event:

In just three weeks, on 5 and 6 May 2023, the first international TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY Fest will take place in Prague’s Futurum club. This event, whose name is given by a well-known underground label from India, is exceptional because it will feature sixteen primarily death and black metal bands from twelve (!) European countries over two days. This is definitely an unprecedented event within the international participation, not only in Prague, and such an interesting and exclusive line-up on top of that.

The festival will feature CUTTERRED FLESH and GODLESS TRUTH from Czech republic, CRAWL from Sweden, CRYPTS OF DESPAIR and SISYPHEAN from Lithuania, DE PROFUNDIS from England, DEVENIAL VERDICT from Finland, DISKORD from Norway, DYSGNOSTIC from Denmark, MONUMENT OF MISANTROPY from Austria, ORPHALIS and VORGA from Germany, THE SCALAR PROCESS and VIANDE from France, VOMITHEIST from Switzerland and 71TONMAN from Poland will be the only representative of sludge/doom metal.
