Eyehategod

Eyehategod

Main Act: Eyehategod
Date: 16th October
Advance Tickets: £14
Venue: The Underworld
City: Camden, London
Support: Billyclub + Headless Kross

‘From the Elementary to the Penitentiary' - Eyehategod return to the United Kingdom’s grey shores to bring their tidal wave of iconically brutal sludge to anyone who may stand in their path. The undisputed King’s of the NOLA underground, EHG’s sound takes its throne as some of the cardinal virtues of not only misanthropic doom, but heavy music as a whole.
After a turbulent saga that would put most bands in the ground, Eyehategod’s resilience means they deliver, without fail, gut punching performances night after night - if you have yet to witness these veterans take to the stage do so now. And whether it’s your 1st EHG show or your 100th you already know they’re going to kick seven shades of shit out of you, musically speaking that is…
Eyehategod will be joined by UK punk heavy hitters Billyclub - in their own words it’s loud, fast, aggressive and straight to the point. Sounds good to us.

NIGHTSTALKERLONDON copy web.png

Being one of the first acts of their genre with a debut EP, “SideFX”, released back in the middle of the grunge era in 1994, Nightstalker will be releasing their 8th studio album titled “Great Hallucinations” on October 4th, 2019, via Heavy Psych Sounds. This album will directly hit your rock soul. Eight blistering, new tracks which are showcasing the various side of Nightstalker’s sound, combining groovy parts with heaviness and catchy melodies. The guitars so heavy but spacey and psychedelic at the same time, a bass that is always groovy with intense punch. All together with the power and melody of Argy’s vocal skills are the secret of the band’s music. Raw rock n roll simplicity, stunning riffs and electric haze are what have kept the band going for more than 20 years.

Formed in Greece, in late 1989, by singer (and at the time drummer) Argy and made truly stable with the addition of bassist Andreas in 1992, Nightstalker managed to meld their heavy rock influences with funky rhythms and grungy melodies to create a whole new beast. With all these elements in place they released the first EP in 1994 entitled "SideFx." With the release of their first full length album "USE" in 1996, the band established themselves and their own trademark brand of dark heavy sounds. 2000 saw a slight shuffle in membership as well as a new EP, "The Ritual," which found Nightstalker treading further in to the realms of deepest, darkest Psychedelica. Line-up fully entrenched the ensuing pair of albums, 2004's "Just A Burn" and 2009's "Superfreak" garnered the band a new and loyal following across the world.

Why do they come to me to die?"

High Reeper plus guests

High Reeper plus guests

Artist: High Reeper
Support: TBA
Date: Saturday 9th Nov 2019
Venue: The Black Heart, London
Price: £10 adv

Formed in 2016, High Reeper is made up of Zach Thomas, Justin Di Pinto, Andrew Price, Pat Daly and Shane Trimble. Originally started as just a studio band, it rapidly became apparent that these songs were meant to be heard live and loud. The band made their debut in the Philly/DE stoner rock scene in early 2017 with success which was followed up by the recording of their self-titled debut in May. With a sound deeply rooted in modern stoner rock while still giving a nod to the earliest Sabbath records, High Reeper's first offering is driven by pounding rhythms, thick guitars and soaring, screeching vocals. For their second record, the addition of Di Pinto on drums helped focus their sound in an even more powerful direction. The result is a new record with riffs that are even heavier than before that explore new directions, including the ballad “Apocalypse Hymn”. After shattering Desertfest London to pieces this May, we are thrilled to have the band return to The Black Heart in Camden once more!

Gozu 2019 Tour Poster V3 (1) LDN.png

Main Act: Gozu
Support: TBA
Date: Monday 11th November 2019
Advance Tickets: £12
Venue: The Lounge, Camden
City: London
Doors: 7PM

High octane good times is the daily recipe GOZU cook up to near perfection. The Boston based trio's sound is tailor-made for blasting out the car speakers, it’s the kind of music that pulls up alongside you while you’re walking down the street minding your own business, demands that you “get in the goddamn car,” proceeds to drive 90 mph down the wrong side of the highway, and then drops you off miles from home at some abandoned rest stop. GOZU will play a very special one-off performance at The Lounge Promotion: Nightclub Kolis in Camden this November. Tickets are on sale now but we predict they'll be out quick so get to it!
