As if Desertfest itself wasn't enough, we've teamed up with Old Empire to kick off the weekend early. We're warming up for the festival with Wretch and Iron Void.
Indiana's Wretch should be well known to doomster's everywhere. Formed by ex-The Gates of Slumber mainstay, Karl Simon, after the doom favourites called it quits in 2013, Wretch still bring the doom, though from a slightly different slant. More focused and traditional in their approach to the slow and heavy, Wretch, may be closer in some respects to Saint Vitus than they are to The Gates of Slumber.
Joining them are Wakefield's Iron Void; proud champions of Yorkshire doom metal. Similarly anchored in trad doom, though with a little more bounce, Iron Void's self-titled debut feels ripped from the late 70s / early 80s.
So start the party early and get ready for this year's Desertfest when Wretch and Iron Void doomsplode over Camden. Book your tickets today.
