Retribution Alive's DARK CLOUDS OVER CAMDEN takes over Camden for 3 nights, ending at the Lounge on Sunday 8th September. Please note, the Lounge has re-opened its Archway venue and has moved all its live operations back. Therefore, the Sunday of Dark Clouds Over London will be at the Archway venue, not the Camden one.
The final night ends in true Hellish fashion, thanks to UK black/death masters HECATE ENTHRONED. Support comes from London black metallers FORMICARIUS, returning to Retribution Alive after 3 years. Cumbrian black metal fury is present in the form of THY DYLING LIGHT, who make their London debut this very evening. CHRISTGRINDER and COGAS complete the lineup.

"A tidal wave of bombastic black metal grandeur... Truly a classic to be" - ZERO TOLERANCE Magazine
"Londoners Formicarius are immersed in blackness. As 'Lake Of The Dead' shows, they're inherently part of the black metal heritage, but have an approach that takes the sound right back to its British roots." - MALCOLM DOME, Legendary metal journalist
"Blasting fury in coils of wicked melody, swathes of monstrous power and high velocity in cold shrouds of melancholic atmosphere" - TERRORIZER Magazine
"Possessing all the grandeur and gothic magic of Cradle of Filth at their best... Formicarius had it all" - POWERPLAY Magazine
THY DYLING LIGHT
Cumbrian Black Metal influenced by Mütiilation, Vlad Tepes, Satanic Warmaster, Blodulv, Darkthrone and Mayhem!
Formed in 2010, Christgrinder are a blackened death metal band based in London and North Staffordshire.
The brainchild of Baron Piotr Von Christgrinde, a man caught somewhere between philosopher and the proprietor of a 19th century freak show, Christgrinder build their sound on deep foundations of black and death metal, deftly guiding the listener through a cabinet of curiosities gathered from the full spectrum of extreme music: Gato Barbieri's saxophone that screams like a woman... an old tibetan bell that only chimes at 666 Hz... Kevin Sharp’s grindcore trousers... These are just a few of the treasures to be found in The Baron’s wunderkabinet.
London based Black/Death metal band. CogaS like Marduk,Dark Funeral, Aura Noir, Darkthrone, DeathcrusH, Deicide, Immortal, Judas Iscariot, Marduk, Mgła, Simulacro, Spite, Taake, Ulver, Alcest, Opeth, Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse and more...
