The United Kingdom town of Scunthorpe, the country’s largest steel processing local, one known as the “Industrial Garden Town”, will soon become known for something else altogether.
On Saturday, November 10th, 13 of the U.K.’s absolute heaviest, gnarliest, noise emitting entities active on the isles at this time, will gather in the name of Doom. Yes, in the name of Doom, Sludge, Stoner Rock / Metal, and all of the unified banners of the underground, as the second edition of CVLTFEST comes together at the Café INDIEpendent (coffee house by day, arts venue by night).
Presented by Lizard King Promotions, CVLTFEST 2018 will amass a mind-blowing roster of bands together in one location where, if all goes as planned, the collective will lay waste to Scunthorpe. Several of the acts scheduled to appear are ones covered here at Riff Relevant, and include the following heavyweights:
Candlelight Records recording artists WITCHSORROW will headline the event after the day’s sonic onslaught from APF Records‘ DESERT STORM, smokin’ sludgers BONGCAULDRON, the riff-intense DIESEL KING, sludge merchants MASTIFF, rhythm ‘n boozers PIST, as well as BARBARIAN HERMIT, who are launching their new album, ‘Solitude And Savagery‘, in November.
Also to appear, sludge metal trio EVEREST QUEEN, the stoner doom crew CHURCH OF LIES, blues rockers RITUAL KING, psychedelic stoners DELTANAUT, France’s amazing doom marvels CRACKHOUSE, and the massive noise rock duo TUSKAR.
More details and information is available below, as well as on the event’s Facebook page [HERE], while the fest’s running order and band’s set times are coming soon.
