Described by the organisers Mark Lewis from Mythology Agency and Marek Steven (aka Skill Wizard) as "presenting underground Black metal, Thrash, Speed, Death, Heavy Metal, Metal Punk and Doom bands from around the world" it sounds like every real metal heads wet dream.  Having missed it last year due to
