The Retribution Alive road trip halts in May as we stay at the Underdog Gallery in London Bridge for part two of the 'Wasteland Series', a two event celebration of everything doom, sludge, stoner, groove and everything in-between... and beyond!
We have joint headliners this month with doom-stoner-classic-rockers LIMB launching their 3rd album alongside the cold, gothic, doom sound of COLD IN BERLIN. Main support comes from ambient, post-sludge machine HUNDRED YEAR OLD MAN from Leeds and more!
The Retribution club night keeps the neighbours awake until 1am!
So far the diverse metalisation of Retribution Alive has breached the walls of such venues as the Intrepid Fox, Scala, The Lounge, Purple Turtle, Black Heart, The Dev, Electrowerktz, Unicorn, Nambucca, Underdog Gallery, Big Red, 12 Bar, New Cross Inn, Fiddlers Elbow, Amersham Arms, Wig & Gown, Amwell Arms, Upstairs @ The Garage, Kings Arms and the Plough & Harrow! Get along to April's edition at the Underdog Gallery!
"Limb immediately up the ante with a performance that blows the crowd away and the preceding bands out of the water. Lit by a single lamp from the side of the stage, Rebellion packs out for a shadowy master class in doom; devastating guitars crunch in perfect harmony behind frontman Rob Hoey's uniquely commanding gravelly tones whilst he prowls the stage, inciting crowd involvement at every opportunity." - http://echoesanddust.com
COLD IN BERLIN
"It's the edgy and abrasive album many bands lack the experience to write... The quality is there, they don't need to prove themselves again... they're here to be taken seriously." Dominion/Terrorizer
"Bone crushing riffs and sharp dynamics... places CiB squarely in the 'ones to watch' category" - Metal Hammer
HUNDRED YEAR OLD MAN
"Pushing even further into the abyss, this new work opens with Sun & Moon and a monstrous slab of heaving guitars fall out of the atmospheric beginnings. Paul Broughton's vocal erupts and the track explodes into life, destroying everything in its path until the shadows return to close, leading the way into an interlude that corrodes and drifts before joining these two monolithic pieces together. The title track demonstrates the staggering ambition that Hundred Year Old Man posses. Ripping into a cathartic sludge reminiscent of Neurosis at their best, it's a towering, immersive, nine minute journey that refuses to loosen its grip until the dying moments." - https://hundredyearoldman.bandcamp.com/
Smashing through the Earth's mantle on the back of an isotope slug.
"...they hit the spot, club you over the head and rifle through your pockets whilst you are still in a stupor. All good in my book." - Ave Noctum
