Space Witch

Since the dawn of the First galaxies the voice of Morkobot resounded solemn over the saturated atmospheres of the planets in evolution.

Space is trippy, Witch is heavy. Let it be known that the ones who are called Space Witch were spawned in the shining month of July 2007 AD in the kiln strewn kingdom of Stoke on Trent.

They unleashed their astral drone, and the peasants were afraid and they flung themselves down and prayed to the one, for they knew the time had come for the Space Witch, in all her arcane and timeless glory, to finally return to the earth and claim what was rightfully hers.

BOW DOWN IF YOU VALUE YOUR PITIFUL LIFE, ALL HAIL THE COSMIC DOOM OF THE SPACE WITCH…SHE IS THE CREATOR, SHE IS THE DESTROYER, SHE IS THE EARTH, SHE IS THE UNIVERSE, AAAAAAAARRRRRRGHHH……. (Adam 2008)

Gods Of Hellfire

Currently cutting a swathe through the musical scene of Bradford and the North of England are battle-hardened metallers; The Gods of Hellfire.

Taking their cues from bands such as Crowbar, Grand Magus, YOB, High On Fire and Mercyful Fate, they have spent the last few years laying waste to venues up and down the country and in Europe too, sharing the stage with WOLF, DEATH ANGEL, Y&T to name but a few. 2009 saw them being asked to play the New Blood Stage at the mighty BLOODSTOCK festival and from then on they have gone from strength to strength…

Gods Of Hellfire’s pedigree lists such bands as Serenity, Bloodstream, Khang, Lazarus Blackstar.

2012 looks set to be a great year, having signed a European management and booking deal, plans for a new EP in the pipeline and gigs booked for here, there and everywhere.

HORNS ABLAZE!

Bismuth

slow. lots of amps. loud.

“For convenience sake, think if instead of loving weed and Jesus, OM had taken some kind of acid laced Ketamine, and then asked a banshee to provide vocals.”
